The City of Ventura
The city is a lively bustling place with its museums, art galleries, beaches and shopping areas. The Ventura Harbor has exquisite sea-food restaurants and houses the headquarters of the Channel Islands National Park. Ferry departs regularly from the Ventura Harbor to Channel Islands.
Though called the ‘city of good fortune,’ Ventura is unfortunately located in a geologically unstable area, making it vulnerable to earthquakes. The largest earthquake measuring 6.7 in magnitude occurred in 1994 within 100 miles of Ventura. The USGS database predicts that the probability of a large earthquake (5.0 magnitude and more) within a 31 mile radius of the city in the next 50 years is close to 93%. The probability still remains high at 72% when the earthquake magnitude goes up to 5.7.

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.
