Why Earthquake Retrofit is Essential

Earthquakes pose significant risks to homes and structures, especially in regions prone to seismic activity in the Pacific Northwest. Earthquake retrofitting is essential for ensuring the safety and stability of your home in the event of a seismic event. Here are some reasons why earthquake retrofit is crucial:

  • Enhanced Structural Integrity: Retrofitting strengthens the structural components of your home, including the foundation, walls, and roof, making them more resistant to seismic forces.

  • Minimized Damage: By reducing the likelihood of structural failure and collapse, earthquake retrofitting minimizes the risk of property damage and ensures the safety of occupants during an earthquake.

  • Compliance with Building Codes: Retrofitting ensures that your home meets current building codes and safety standards, which may be updated to reflect new knowledge and technology regarding seismic risk.

  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that your home is fortified against earthquakes provides peace of mind for you and your family, allowing you to live without fear of the next seismic event.

What our customers are saying


Amazing experience with this company!

"I contacted several foundation repair companies and I'm so happy that I found Tyler and WCS. The company replied to my questions quickly, the team that came over was professional and courteous, the repair on my foundation fixing the level was top notch work. I highly recommend this company!"

Western Construction Systems came out and did exceptional work at my house!

"They went above and beyond my expectations! They were friendly, professional, and hard-working! They took care of all the issues that I had concerns with and then some! Their prices were fair, especially for the high quality of work that they did! I know I pestered them with questions, but they were patient every single time. Before I contacted them to have the work done, I had high anxiety about the drainage issues. When they were finished, I felt confident that there were no more issues. Peace of mind is priceless!"

- Robyn S


Tyler, Juan and their crew did an amazing job at our home.

"They installed their gutter system and were finished in just a few days knowing that we didn't have our hot water heater connected. They are great with communicating and assessing a situation to figure out what needs to be done. Highly recommended!"
