This resource, administered by the City's Building and Safety Services Division, provides an additional incentive allowing "do-it-yourself" residents who are interested in strengthening structural weaknesses in their homes the ability to do so without the added costs of purchasing or renting tools required for a retrofit.
§ Must be a San Leandro resident who has:
§ Participated in the Home Earthquake Strengthening Course
§ Been issued a Building Permit to do the Seismic Retrofit and will be using the San Leandro Prescriptive Home-Strengthening Plan Set
§ A credit card or refundable deposit is required to check out tools.
· Tools may be checked out for four-day periods
· A list of some of the tools we have available:
- Air Compressor – Cast Iron Pipe Cutter – Hammer Drill – Jig Saw – Nail Gun – Framing/Finish/Palm Nailers - RotoHammer
· As an added benefit, once your seismic retrofit is completed, you are welcome to borrow tools for any future home projects for as long as you are a San Leandro resident.
