How to Prepare Your Home for an Earthquake
Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) was developed to help homeowners lessen the potential for damage to their houses during an earthquake. A residential seismic retrofit strengthens an existing older house, which makes it more resistant to earthquake activity, such as ground shaking and soil failure. The seismic retrofitting involves bolting the house to its foundation and adding bracing around the perimeter of the crawl space.
GenHawk Construction is Earthquake Brace + Bolt (EBB) certified to handle your seismic retrofitting needs. We have a great relationship with EBB and understand the information they need us to provide to accept your home into their refund program.
CRMP was established in 2011 to help Californians strengthen their homes against damage from earthquakes. CRMP is a joint powers authority created by the California Earthquake Authority and the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services. Earthquake Brace + Bolt: Funds to Strengthen Your Foundation is the first incentive program offered by CRMP.
