Retrofit Q&As

What is a Seismic Retrofit?

If your home was built before 1980, it may be more vulnerable to earthquake damage. A retrofit, sometimes called a seismic retrofit, involves strengthening your house to make it more resistant to earthquakes. Completing a retrofit reduces damage, improves personal safety for you and your family, and protects financial security as well. Get prepared and worry less. Build a stronger tomorrow by strengthening your house today. Discover more details about retrofitting with our FAQs.
