FAQs About Elevating a Home for Flood Protection

Should I elevate my house a full story or just a few feet?

If you are raising the ground level of your home 2 to 4 feet, we would not recommend abandoning the floor level. However, if you are elevating the ground level above 4 feet, it would probably be a good idea to add a story to the house and use the lower level as a garage or storage space.

Can you lift my home if it has a basement foundation?

Yes! We provide house lifting services for homes with different kinds of foundations including: a basement foundation, a slab-on-grade foundation, a pier and beam foundation, and a crawlspace foundation.

What does FPE stand for?

FPE stands for "Flood Protection Elevation". This means the house is elevated so that the living area is out of reach of moderate to high-risk severe flooding.

Is there a map of flood zones online?

FEMA has created a database of mapped areas with flood zones.

What are some benefits of elevating a home in a flood plain?

Benefits include:

  • minimizing flood damage
  • lowering insurance premium
  • adding home value
  • increasing new usable space in the home
