House Bolting

  • Foundation and House Bolting Beverly Hills, CA

    Scientists agree that California has entered a period of increased seismic activity. Since 1989, the state has been rocked by four magnitude seven earthquakes, and more are certainly on the way. Locally, the Northridge Earthquake showed us the devastation neighborhoods can suffer when a moderate earthquake strikes in the heart of an urban area.

    House Bolting or Earthquake Retrofitting is the process of attaching a house to its concrete foundation using foundation plates and anchor bolts. California is "earthquake country" and we who live here should be aware that the up-and-down and side-to-side motion of an earthquake can shake an unbolted house off its foundation.

    Careful planning, placement and installation of foundation bolts are critical for good bolting strength. It is important to use the proper type of bolt corresponding to the existing conditions of the home and its foundation. The expected type of bolt load or stress is another important consideration for bolt selection.
