What are the options when a home floods? Do your rebuild or remodel and hope flooding was a once-in-a-lifetime experience? Maybe you should just move, even though this is the home of your dreams in a great location. One solution an increasing number of homeowners in this quandary are turning to is a home elevation or building lift.
Raising a structure above the flood level is not a job for any contractor, but home elevations are one of our specialties at Brielle Developers. There is a lot to consider before moving ahead with this option, including the type and amount of damage sustained and family considerations. The other factor to contemplate before making a decision is the likelihood of future damage without a building lift.
We can help you with by arming you with all the information you’ll need to make that decision.
By including a skilled and reliable contractor with the experience and expertise necessary for this kind of construction, you can move confidently ahead knowing you’ll also have a timetable for completion for that all-important peace of mind. As is the case with any home construction job, no matter how extensive, it’s all about how long and how much. We can help alleviate both of those concerns, finishing on time and within the budget, because we’ve been where you are before.
Any inconveniences, anticipated and unanticipated, can be both stressful and costly. That’s why our simple message to all home and building owners is, “Fear not.!” Brielle Developers can show you an impressive portfolio of successful building lifts and a convincing résumé that validates our reputation.
Home Elevations Recommended by FEMA
A home elevation may seem like a rather exclusive option, but it is quite acceptable, even recommended, by none other than the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) in areas prone to flooding.
“Elevation may e one of the best ways to protect your home, your family and your possessions,” said FEMA’s Albert Lewis after the flooding wrought by Hurricane Sandy in the fall of 2012, calling home elevation an “extremely effective” option.
By the way, reducing the risk to the property should lower insurance or flood insurance costs.
The fundamentals of a building lift extend to all sides of a building, depending on its design, possibly changing the direction or angle of the façade or the front of the building.
Along with a great reputation comes great responsibility. Brielle Developers never quits until the job is done. It may be a simple or complex elevation, but it doesn’t matter. We take ownership all the way through a successful completion.
