Seismic safety is a common discussion when buying and selling a home and is a unique topic to the west coast, especially California.
Since the question comes up quite often, we thought we would share some resources to help our clients and their real estate agents understand the codes and requirements for correct seismic water heater strapping. We have also included below, a link to the 2005 published Homeowner's Guide to Earthquake Safety.
Additionally, there is a link to the USGS website that reports on all earthquakes around the world.
I'm a CREIA certified home inspector. I have built Hammond Inspection Services to be more than just an inspection company. I started this blog to be more of a resource to home buyers, sellers and real estate agents.
