Earthquake retrofitting is a step-by-step project of using supplemental hardware to materials such as but not limited to lumber, plywood and steel to be used in the additive construction of the foundation. This application is contrived to defend against foundation damage due to ground motion, seismic activity or soil failure.
These techniques involve a pervasive and strict procedure for success. Structures that may benefit from and in most need of Earthquake Retrofitting are any infrastructures built post 1936. Structures built after this time period commonly have some form of bolting from the original foundation. And this is where retrofitting can prove incredibly beneficial, adding that extra protection necessary.
The Earthquake Retrofitting method is designed to be utilized as a preventative measure to increase foundational integrity and protection in a potentially disastrous occurrence such as an earthquake.
All of our earthquake retrofitting adheres to all current city requirements in Los Angeles and Orange counties. These standards may be located on the City of Los Angles webpage.

I had a great experience with Ram. He was so thorough with his inspection, and such an awesome personality. He had me take a look at the foundation, as well as explain exactly what was wrong, so I would have a better understanding of the estimate.
These guys are GREAT! Joe in the office is a dream. Warm, efficient and really works to accommodate your request. RON IS THE MAN.... I've used them as a Selling Agent and I called him back to help me at a different location (2 weeks later) as a Buying Agent..
They really are Foundation Experts. Had a couple companies recommend different things, although Built Strong addressed the concerns with the same recommendations other companies provided but also customized the repair and really took the time and resilience to address my homes unique and difficult problems.
