Seismic Retrofitting

Now is the time to complete a seismic upgrade to your home.

Keep your home on its proper foundation

What is Seismic Retrofitting?

Believe it or not, if your house is built before 1975, it is just sitting on your concrete foundation. IT IS NOT ATTACHED IN ANY WAY! This means that in even in a small tremor, your house can go sliding off into your driveway. Seismic bolting has been compared to a seatbelt for your house.

Is there Danger?

A major earthquake in Oregon could strike in next 50 years and our infrastructure not ready. The danger is real. In 1989, during the 7.1 magnitude Loma Prieta earthquake there were two identical Victorian homes sitting next to each other. By the end of the quake only the right, earthquake retrofitted home was standing. The left home slid of its foundation. The repairs to the earthquake retrofitted house was $5000, and the non-earthquake retrofitted house was over $260,000.

Can I really save Money on my Insurance?

You'll notice that an older house, when properly retrofitted, has a much smaller risk of being damaged, and thus is at the lowest possible premium. We will help provide your insurance company with the necessary insurance documents. For a free assessment, call Abacus Energy Solutions, LLC at 971 506-4223, or email us at
