What are earthquake classifications?

Earthquake classifications predict how building materials will perform in the event of an earthquake with respect to potential property loss.

Earthquake classifications are specific to individual buildings and depend on factors including the building's size and frame type.

You can access earthquake classifications for buildings WSRB has specifically rated through our Commercial Property Reports, available in Risk Search and PropertyEDGE
