The city of Brea in Orange County came into existence as a result of the oil boom in the area that lasted until the 1940’s. As oil production declined the economy in Brea received a boost due to the retail revolution initiated by Brea Mall. Today Brea has a thriving retail economy helped in part by the city’s strategic location at the center of Southern California that makes it attractive to business investors.

The City of Brea
Brea today is an upbeat, bustling community self sufficient in its essential amenities, education, employment creation and entertainment opportunities, offering a high quality of life to its residents. Brea has one of the best public art work programs with over 140 artworks at various locations throughout the city. Hollywood celebrity James Cameron is a native of Brea.
Housing market in Brea is booming right now. Take advantage of this trend and enhance the market value of your properly by earthquake retrofitting your home and carrying out foundation repairs as required. This is important because, like most other areas in California, Brea’s proximity to the San Andreas Fault Line makes it vulnerable to earthquakes. Hence properly that is not suitably earthquake proofed will be valued lower than the current market price.
Earthquake Risk in Brea
According to the USGS database the chances of a major earthquake (above magnitude 5.0) taking place with its epicenter within 31 miles of Brea in the next few decades is extremely high (97% actually). And there is 50% probability of a fairly destructive 6.5 magnitude earthquake occurring. Given such high odds, naturally retrofitting and foundation repairs that strengthen your home against earthquakes are taken into account while valuing property.
If you don’t want to sell your home, such procedures are all the more important because they guarantee the safety of your loved ones in the event of an earthquake. If your home is not bolted firmly to its foundations by retrofitting or if the foundation itself is cracked or damaged, there is nothing to stop your beloved home from collapsing like a pack of cards in the face of a strong earthquake. And there are very high chances of such an occurrence.

Will and his company did an outstanding job retrofitting my 6 apartment buildings. I had several other companies bid this project but was won over by his knowledge and honesty. He listened to what i was concerned about, assured me he would he take care of everything and did everything he said he was going to do…and then some. I highly recommend him.
