What is House Bolting / Seismic Retrofitting and what are the benefits of bolting my Home?
House Bolting is a method of securing your home to the foundation using bolts or where drilling space is limited side plates are used. Seismic Retrofitting is a process that substantially increases the resistance of your home to earthquake damage and the risk of injury. Homes built prior to 1948 are not attached in any way and cannot withstand the downward pull of gravity, But forces of an earthquake are not just up and down, they are sideways as well. Strengthened homes are safer to live in and easier to sell and insure. Some insurance companies and banks will not insure or refinance the homes unless the foundation is bolted. The Northridge quake has proven that bolted homes stayed on their foundations in the same neighborhoods where unbolted homes did not.
