There have been a number recent natural disasters that have had the potential to make an impact on the safety of the Washington State coastlines and cities. Thankfully, they didn’t, but they got us thinking about our role as a contractor for our community. Planning ahead for potential disasters is always a good idea. While few of our homes are at risk of tsunami damage, as featured in our article, “Danger Inspires Beauty,” natural disasters such as flooding and earthquakes have the potential to cause significant damage to our homes locally.
From securing bookshelves to the wall to replacing pressboard trim, and installing earthquake strapping (securing a home to its foundation) to installing perimeter french drains or sump pumps, there are many ways to mitigate and minimize potential problems.
We are happy to chat about ways you can make your home resilient (and beautiful)!
