HouseCheck

What is HouseCheck?
HouseCheck is an interactive online tool that lets you see how your home may perform in a major earthquake.

HouseCheck lets you enter information about how your house is built and gives an indicative score for its strength compared with a new code-compliant house in your area, and the likely damage that would be caused by a design earthquake (1 in 500 years) – as a % of replacement value.
