Seismic Retrofitting in Marina del Rey, CA


When it comes to home remodeling, many people think of cosmetic changes like a new coat of paint or new countertops. But sometimes, more significant changes are needed to make your home safer and more comfortable. If your home was built before 1978, it might not meet current seismic safety standards. This was the case for our recent client in Marina del Rey, CA. Their wood-frame home was in need of a seismic retrofit to protect against earthquakes.

We worked closely with our client to assess their needs and develop the best possible solution. We decided to use braced or moment-resisting steel frames and cantilevered steel columns to reinforce the structure. This would provide the necessary strength and stability to keep the home safe in the event of an earthquake.

The retrofit process was not without its challenges. We had to work around the existing framing and make sure that the new elements were properly integrated. But in the end, we were able to successfully complete the project and our client was very happy with the results.

If you live in an older home, don’t wait until it’s too late to retrofit it for seismic safety. Contact Retrofit1 today for a free consultation. We’ll help you choose the best solution for your home and budget.
