West Hollywood, situated in Los Angeles County, has the glamorous Beverly Hills for its immediate neighbor and is completely surrounded by the mega entertainment city of Los Angeles. So it is hardly surprising that West Hollywood attracts celebrities from LA and has been the scene for many a celebrity controversy. It is interesting to note that with the exception of New York, West Hollywood has the highest population of the Russian speaking community in the US.

The City of West Hollywood
The city is credited with a number of firsts. It was the first city in California to allow registration of some gender domestic partnerships to protect their legal tights. A city of animal lovers, West Hollywood was the first city to outlaw declawing of cats and a city law has designated that pets be referred to as ‘companions.’ The city was the first in the country to ban sale of clothes created with animal fur.
Along with all these firsts, it is unfortunate that West Hollywood is second to no other city in California when it comes to earthquake risk too. As per the USGS database, there is 95% probability that an earthquake of above 5.0 magnitude may occur within 31 miles of West Hollywood in the next 50 years. A fairly destructive 6.0 magnitude earthquake has an almost 70% chance of occurring and when the magnitude moves up to 6.5, the chances are still high at 50%.
Given these high odds, CXC Contracting urges all home owners in West Hollywood to consider earthquake retrofitting and foundation repairs that will enable their homes to withstand the effects of an earthquake.
How Retrofitting and Foundation Repairs Help
Earthquake retrofitting is designed to secure your house firmly to the foundation and enable it to better resist the lateral forces during an earthquake. And foundation repairs make sure that your foundation has no vulnerabilities, which can turn even a mild earthquake into a devastating disaster. Earthquake retrofitting and foundation repair solutions require certain financial investment (as does everything else), but the money you spend now will be far lesser than what it would cost to rebuild your home if it is completely damaged in an earthquake. Moreover by earthquake proofing your home you can be at peace about the safety of your loved ones. And you can’t really put a price on that, can you?
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.
