The City of Burbank
Complete with several quaint “downtown” areas (Toluca Lake boasts the original “Bob’s Big Boy,” and still has waitresses on roller skates offering car-side service), the city is a slice of early Americana. Yet similar to other cores in the area, Burbank is prone to frequent earthquakes and aftershocks.
While the “Northridge earthquake” in 1994 was the largest temblor recorded in the city, the odds of the city experiencing a magnitude 7.6 quake (which is known to be incredibly destructive) in the next 5 decades is greater than 20%. And there is more than 90% chance that the city will experience a 5.2 magnitude quake.
Since even smaller quakes — given the right conditions of depth, soil composition, proximity, etc. — can cause substantial damage to homes, we at CXC Contracting strongly urge homeowners to in the Burbank area to investigate earthquake retrofitting. With the historical value of so many of the houses in the area in danger, getting them retrofitted to protect against earthquakes is simply good planning.
Foundation repair and house leveling
Frequent minor earthquakes — along with soil shifts and other factors — can, over time, cause a home’s foundation to became uneven, as well as causing crocks, broken foundations, and other problems. Having a solid foundation in good, level condition is advantageous for all homes, but especially so in the earthquake-prone city of Burbank, California.
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.
