Seismic Retrofit for Single-Family Properties

The first step in protecting your single-family home from earthquake damage is understanding how earthquakes cause structural damage. Learn about how earthquakes cause damage and how you can protect against it by visiting the California Earthquake Authority website. The site also provides information on the structural risks associated with particular single-family home construction types and different types of preventative retrofit measures than can be taken, such as foundation anchors and cripple-wall bracing, to strengthen a structure against earthquake damage.
