Foundation Construction Company Urges More Readiness In Event Of An Earthquake
LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction Inc. (http://www.julianconstruction.com), a foundation construction and repair company based in Southern California, is making an effort to raise awareness of the necessity for earthquake readiness for homeowners in their area, due to the unpredictability of activity of earthquakes.
Earthquake preparation is a large factor in security for homeowners. An unstable foundation can greatly increase the chance of risk if a quake hits.
According to the United States Geological Survey: ?There’s a 100 percent chance of an earthquake today. Though millions of persons may never experience an earthquake, they are very common occurrences on this planet. So today — somewhere — an earthquake will occur.? they also state ?Since a major portion of the world’s earthquakes each year center around the rim of the Pacific Ocean (Ring of Fire), referred to by seismologists as the circum-Pacific belt, this is the most probable location for today’s earthquake.?
Due to the possibility of earthquakes hitting the L.A. area Julian Construction is recommending that homeowners get a foundation inspection to ensure their home is secure in the event of another earthquake.
Julian De La Torre, founder of the company, stated: ?I was actually working with foundations before the Northridge quake hit back in 1994. I have seen what it?s like when the big one hits. And I?ve seen what it?s like when a home foundation is in need of repair versus one that has been inspected and strengthened against the danger of an earthquake. It?s the safe thing to do.?
Julian Construction owns its own company and is built on a ?no middlemen? model ? no salesmen, no subcontractors.
