How to Protect Your Home from a Potential Earthquake

When it comes to earthquakes, there’s no accurate way to predict exactly when one might occur. Homeowners who understand the threat of living in a seismically active region are taking proactive steps to prepare, including opting for earthquake insurance.

Unfortunately, many homeowners don’t qualify for earthquake insurance due to the age of their homes. As homes get older, the expansive soil surrounding a home takes its toll on a foundation. Over time, older foundations are more prone to cracking and buckling, and that makes insurance companies less likely to insure a home against an earthquake.

However, with the proper retrofitting process, many homeowners will be able to secure their homes to their foundations and obtain earthquake insurance. TerraFirma Foundation Systems has retrofitted hundreds of homes in Oregon and Washington.
