According to the USGS, a high magnitude earthquake will likely strike the Bay Area with the next ten years. Considering this, ask yourself these questions:
Is my building properly retrofitted to avoid tenant displacement after a large earthquake?
Can I afford the 25% insurance deductible in the case of catastrophic damage?
Was previous work done with permits and with the oversight of a qualified engineer?
There is no predictable earthquake season. And even if your building has survived previous quakes, buildings and foundations deteriorate over time. You cannot assume your building will hold up when the next “Big One” hits.
