SNW provides a variety of services for seismic retrofitting, depending on your house’s unique needs. We can upgrade your cripple wall and/or your foundation, all depending on what makes your home meet seismic protection. Extra upgrades won’t be done unless you ask.
For typical projects, our process starts at evaluating your house and providing a fixed-price quote. Afterwards SNW can begin with engineering the right solution, with your approval. Once we have the right permits and Professional Engineering drawings, we work with you on starting construction on your home so that we minimize the interference with your daily life. Earthquake retrofitting can be a dirty and noisy process, but we know how to keep it to a minimum as possible to get the job done. We perform daily checks and cleaning.
When it’s time to complete the project, we’ll bring out the inspector to make sure your home is done right and meets local, state, and federal codes. Once we’ve performed our final walk-through with you and it meets your satisfaction, we’ll do a final clean up, remove all excess material, and have the refuse bin taken away.
