An Unsecured Home During An Earthquake
An earthquake moves the foundation under a home from side to side, laterally. If your house is not secured, it can slide off.
Do I need to do this…does it work?
can you earthquake proof my home?
will my home collapse?
will my house slide off this hill?
It’s hard not to get too technical, but we can answer these questions for you when we come out and take a look. If your house was built before 1975, it is probably not attached to its foundation—if it was built before the late ’80s, it may be attached but insufficiently for a larger earthquake.
