LOS ANGELES – Julian Construction, a Los Angeles based construction company that specializes in foundation repair and construction, is helping homeowners take preparedness measures for potential landslides and earthquakes by giving free home foundation inspections.
“The harsh temperature changes, heavy rainfall, and fires this past year have potentially affected foundation integrity in regions all over Southern California,” says Julian De La Torre, founder of Julian Construction, foundation contractors. “We want to ensure home properties are safe after environmental situations like this.”
A lot of people had to evacuate their homes because of the fires and subsequent rains. These people may have experienced relief when their tribulation was over, however Julian said, “Now they face a new danger, which is the potential instability of a home foundation which often arises from those circumstances.”
According to Julian, changes in hydrology and temperature can soften the soil and liquefy it, potentially causing problems with the integrity of the foundation. Even when it was deemed safe to return or remain home, the stability of a property’s foundation is unknown and should be tested.
Julian De La Torre and his partner Shawn Kyles have been retrofitting homes in Southern California since the early 1990s, and they work with both engineering firms and local departments of building and safety. As experts in foundation repair, Julian Construction is giving home foundation inspections at no charge. For those who need repair or retrofit, the company offers 0% financing.
