Earthquakes are one of the deadliest acts of nature, and the ground is, quite literally, getting shakier. As a result, more and more buildings need earthquake retrofitting services. Thankfully, these exist, but companies offering these services need strong websites.
Here are 15 of the best and most effective earthquake retrofitting websites.
Rhino Retrofitting has a very sharp website. A center video plays in the background, showing construction workers planning and studying documents. This serves as a great lead for the rest of the site. Scrolling down also reveals a sharp YouTube video that lays out how Rhino works.
Sound Seismic has a smiling family on their front page, making it clear right away that they do a ton of residential work. Their website is sharp, nicely colored, and easy to navigate. They also have a good section on their website, titled “Retrofitting 101,” that explains how they retrofit a home.
Saunders Seismic takes a different tactic, and they use frightening pictures of busted buildings to grab your attention. From there, the website offers a variety of information on the services they provide. They also have a sharp portfolio that does a nice job of laying out what kind of work they do and what services of theirs may apply to you.
Seismic Northwest doesn’t use pictures on its front page, instead opting for sharp design.
