seismic retrofits in glendale, ca

As of May 1, 2019 seismic retrofits in Glendale, CA are completely voluntary. But the city of Glendale is expected to pass an ordinance to require the seismic retrofitting of older, wood-frame buildings, known as "soft-story" buildings later this year. We've created this website to help property owners like you learn more about seismic retrofits. There are hundreds of retrofit contractors in Southern California - but none of them build retrofit solutions like we do.

The retrofit process starts with an assessment of your current property - a licensed architect, engineer, or contractor will help you get a better idea of what type of retrofit solution your property will need. Then an engineer will help you develop a set of plans with a retrofit solution to submit to the city. Once approved, construction can begin.
