Asked by Jon Olson, San Diego, CA • Mon Feb 2, 2009
Ok, my wife is very concerned with the stability of homes in the area from earthquakes. In looking for a home to grow and start a family in, we have found several very nice homes built before the 1997 building code reforms. In layman's terms, what did those codes do for homes here in Southern California structurally? Also, if we purchase a home build in the mid to early 90s, what can I do, if anything, to bring it to code currently, even though its prior construction? Is that even possible? Or, should I limit my search to homes newer than 1997 for her.
