Sometimes it’s necessary to take extra steps when it comes to securing your foundation or earthquake retrofitting your home. House bolting is a popular, fast and inexpensive technique used to help reinforce your building in the event of an earthquake or to stop movement or cracks inside and outside of the home.
Foundation bolting is the process of securing your home to the foundation itself, usually by using foundation plates and anchor bolts. When an earthquake hits, your home usually moves back and forth or up and down on the foundation, which can cause damages to your home, the foundation or both. Foundation bolting makes it so that in the event of an earthquake, your home is less prone to movement and stays as stable as possible, greatly reducing the risk of damages.
The process can sound complicated and extensive but the expert contractors at Troy Builders are here to make it as straightforward and simple as possible. The LA area’s leading experts in home retrofitting, we have years of experience performing proper foundation bolting and our friendly staff will assist you every step of the way.
