Retrofit Now

Earthquakes greater than magnitude 5.0 are on the rise happening daily around the world which means the potential for another large earthquake in the San Francisco Bay Area is very serious. Thus, we ask these questions:

  • Is your building properly retrofitted to avoid tenant displacement after a large earthquake?
  • Can you afford the 25% insurance deductible in the case of catastrophic damage?
  • Was previous work done with permits and with the oversight of a qualified engineer?

There is no predictable earthquake season. And even if your building has survived previous quakes, buildings and foundations deteriorate over time and thus cannot be assumed sufficient for the next “Big One” which is predicted to happen soon.
