Emergency Response Services for Earthquake Damage

ATI Restoration is distinguished by responsiveness and timely service. Restoration companies start receiving a high volume of calls right away after an earthquake. Many contractors struggle to keep up, but ATI Restoration is always ready to rise to the challenge.

We roll Emergency Response Trailers (ERTs) to areas hit by earthquakes. Our ERTs carry supplies and equipment essential for getting restoration and recovery underway as soon as possible.

Technicians at ATI Restoration make safety a priority. Once the residential property is declared safe, we can begin providing emergency services such as:

  • Immediate Assessment of Earthquake Damage
  • Safety Evaluation of the Premises
  • Temporary Repairs
  • Emergency Board-Ups & Tarping
  • Debris Removal
  • Utilities Shutoff

Emergency solutions are critical for laying the groundwork for successful restoration and reconstruction of a residential property. Once these measures are taken, we can begin identifying the best ways to get your home back to its pre-loss condition (if not better).

Types of Earthquake Damage

Earthquakes can wreak havoc on homes, neighborhoods, and entire communities. The damage from a quake can range from relatively minor to major.

ATI Restoration is well-versed in the effects of earthquakes on residential properties. We have more than 30 years of experience helping homeowners overcome losses caused by earthquakes, including:

  • Structural damage, such as cracks in walls and foundations and structural collapse
  • Interior damage; items inside buildings—such as furniture, appliances, equipment, etc.—can be damaged or displaced during an earthquake
  • Ceiling and floor damage
  • Soil liquefaction (the ground shaking during an earthquake can cause areas with loose or water-saturated soil to temporarily lose its strength, leading to sinking or tilting of structures)
  • Foundation issues, including shifting or settling of the foundation and failure of piled foundations
  • Infrastructure damage; homes may suffer losses from debris, flooding from the failure of dams and retaining walls, etc.
  • Utility disruptions, including gas, electric, and water line leaks, which can lead to additional losses
  • Landslides
  • Tsunamis; in coastal regions, powerful earthquakes can generate large ocean waves that can cause extensive damage
  • Fires caused by gas leaks, electrical failures, etc.

Earthquakes can happen any time of year, and they strike with no warning. Homeowners living in earthquake-prone areas are advised to be prepared. In addition to having emergency supplies and a first aid kit, it is crucial to know where to turn if your home experiences earthquake damage.

ATI Restoration has 60+ locations nationwide. This includes multiple offices in states commonly impacted by quakes, including California, Oregon, Washington, Nevada, Utah, and more. We can dispatch a crew to your property within 24 hours to assess the damages and scope out repairs.

How Long Does It Take to Fix Earthquake Damage?

The time it takes to fix earthquake damage can vary widely depending on several factors. Key considerations include:

  • Extent of the damage
  • Speed and efficiency of emergency response
  • Permitting, insurance, and approval processes
  • Availability of materials and labor
  • Weather conditions
  • Complexity of restoration tasks

It is important for property owners to have realistic expectations about the time required for earthquake damage restoration. While some minor repairs may be completed relatively quickly, more extensive damage may necessitate a longer and more phased approach to ensure thorough and safe restoration. Because the timeline is so variable, good communication skills are a must for the restoration company you hire.

ATI Restoration prioritizes clear communication with customers. It’s the first of our core values.

We answer the phones 24/7/365 and mobilize crews as soon as possible. You can count on our team to provide you with ongoing updates, answer your questions quickly, and advise you of the prospective timeline for completion as the work progresses.

Efficiency is the key to our Fast-Track Reconstruction process. By hiring proven experts in multiple fields, we are able to keep the work moving at a brisk pace. This makes it possible for us to mitigate earthquake damage quickly and get customers back in their homes much faster.

How Much Does It Cost to Repair a House After an Earthquake?

Cost is another aspect of earthquake damage restoration that is difficult to estimate. Websites like HomeAdvisor illustrate this difficulty by quoting wide-ranging figures (such as $1,000 to $30,000). Bottom line: It’s challenging to provide a specific cost estimate without detailed information about the particular circumstances of the earthquake damage.

The best step you can take is to call ATI Restoration as soon as possible. Our technicians will perform a comprehensive assessment that enables us to provide an accurate estimate of the costs involved in restoring your home.

Possessing an advanced level of industry knowledge and extensive familiarity with earthquake damage restoration, the experts at ATI Restoration are extremely thorough. We closely evaluate the following factors to understand the extent of the damage, formulate an effective restoration plan, and provide you with a price quote tailored to the situation.


Severity of Damage

The extent and severity of the earthquake damage can significantly impact the cost. Minor cosmetic repairs may be less expensive than major structural repairs or reconstruction.


Structural Damage

Repairs to structural elements, such as the foundation, walls, and roof, are often more costly due to the critical role these components play in the overall stability of the house.


Foundation Issues

Foundation repairs can be a significant cost factor. The complexity of the foundation repair work, such as underpinning or retrofitting, influences the overall expenses.


Building Materials

The choice of building materials for repairs can affect costs. High-quality materials and specialized products designed for earthquake resistance may be more expensive.


Emergency Response & Stabilization Costs

Immediate emergency response efforts, including stabilization, temporary repairs, and preventative measures, can contribute to the initial cost of earthquake damage recovery.
