Earthquake Fitness & Retrofitting

For The North Bay Area

California and many other states offer a major concern for retrofitting buildings and housing.

From good design to accurate products, this is an important part of completing a strong structure. Building codes have been upgraded on newer structures. But most homes and business buildings do not conform to the new earthquake codes.  

While it is up to the state and county to review our bridges and roadways, it is left up to the home owner to review their personal property for proper retrofitting.

Sonoma and Napa Counties continue daily to have small quakes, with occasional threes and fours.  Homes shake off of their foundations without proper seismic retrofitting.

Durability & Beauty

Aluminum vs. steel or iron railings: which is most durable and capable of standing up to extreme weather conditions and pests? In truth, steel and aluminum are both known for being tough and durable.

Steel Iron and Aluminum both make beautiful railings. As metals, they have a similar appearance, and they’re both versatile materials that can be used in a range of railing styles. Over time their aesthetics will change. Steel may rust, creating unsightly orange splotches that will linger until you roll up your sleeves and take care of them with paint, it’s important to know that it may also peel and flake without the maintenance.

Aluminum, takes on modern styles. It is available with a powder coating that will protect it through thick and thin. Because it won’t rust, flake, or fade, it will retain its beauty throughout its life.

                      Video of one-hundred modern railing styles.

Wrought Iron, when painted, will last for years and be moved into various designs being easier in the production of Indoor or outdoor, gates, railings and handrails.

Though steel is technically stronger, aluminum is more malleable and elastic than steel, which means it is less likely to be pushed to its limits. Especially in cold temperatures, steel can be brittle. In addition, if you allow rust to eat away at iron or steel railings, you could compromise its structural integrity. Although most people think of rust as an aesthetic primarily, it can begin eroding steel, making it unsafe. Aluminum, on the other hand, will not rust due to its protective powder coating.

Purchasing Steel and Iron For Construction 

Even though the United States is the fourth largest producer of steel the prices for Santa Rosa steel sales and Northbay steel sales can find itself going to China, India and Japan for a better price on steel products.

Companies on the west coast ordering iron and steel for construction frind the deposits and fees are upfront. With unique requests for structural steel and structural iron for various construction projects the client may deal with delays on shipments for that better price.
