Founded in 1954 by Ed Sylvis, foundation contractor, Seismic Safety is widely recognized as the premier Southern California Resource for residential Earthquake Retrofitting and Foundation reinforcement.
News media, home owners, Earthquake and Seismic Retrofitting experts, structural engineers and Real Estate agents all rely on Seismic Safety, located in Pasadena, California, servicing the greater Los Angeles area.
Every homeowner in Altadena California must consider earthquake safety. Are you sure that your home can stand up to the next big earthquake? Your home is your biggest investment and protects your loved ones and your possessions. Don’t wait, call us at Seismic Safety with questions or to schedule a comprehensive inspection.
Earthquake retrofit for wood frame buildings addresses what is known as “The Earthquake Weakness” – which involves the attachments of the structure – your home – to its foundation. Seismic Safety will send their Seismic Retrofitting experts to you home, evaluates and performs structural and foundation reinforcements that will reduce the risk of earthquake-induced damage to your home.
Recent earthquakes have shown that if a building has weak cripple wall bracing or is unbolted, it may slide off its foundation even in certain moderate earthquakes. Our earthquake retrofitting professionals have seen buildings whose Cripple stud walls have toppled over, and the buildings have collapsed and slid. Fallen buildings may catch fire or need extensive foundation repairs to restore occupancy requirements.
The experts here at Seismic Safety are the best in the home foundation repair and house bolting industry and we are happy to help answer any questions you may have about foundation bolting, cripple wall bracing, and other factors that affect your home’s earthquake safety.

Ed responded to my Yelp query in which I urgently needed advice on a home I was about to buy. The foundation didn't look like it was repaired well, the initial home inspection report I got from another firm was inconclusive,Gary D. Los Angeles, CA
