Soft Story Retrofit in Glassell, California

A soft-story building is a building in which the first story of the building is only 70% as strong as the second story. The first story of this type of building is usually hollow and most commonly used as a parking garage. Soft story buildings are much more susceptible to collapse during an earthquake, which is why a process, known as soft story retrofit, is used to strengthen the structural integrity of a soft story building. ABI Construction Inc is highly skilled in providing soft story retrofit services to Glassell, California area residents and businesses so you're not faced with catastrophic damage in the event of an earthquake.
