Bolt epoxy is also a good choice, the place where the seismic movement can lift the structure. Due to the long and thick, the possibility to withdraw from the wooden frame Concrete foundation is reduced.
Expansion Screws Foundation is best done with a concrete foundation, which is in good condition, such as concrete used in a new house or a new base in an old house. This is because the screws requires “strong cement” effect. Screws may be used provided that they do not break the concrete.
Anchors should be installed with a dishwasher square. Washer makes the connection stronger and safer for the Foundation. Before Dishwasher square came into use, the mounting screws, washers rounds. However, washing machine in turn has a sufficient holding force.
Sometimes this type of anchor may be required, depending on whether the house has cripple walls. The house can also be a combination of errors walls and places where the bottom of the base.

Many houses are built during and after 1930 some sort of household screws (Los Angeles and other cities in earthquake in particular). Check the screws, that there is a weak or too far away set to provide the necessary assistance in the earthquake.
Each work will be done, need to strengthen the structure of your home complies with applicable norms. A specialist company or foundation repair foundation should be consulted to determine whether to replace the existing bolts, and to the extent that all new screws required.
