Two Common Reasons Why N. Carolina Residents Elevate Their Homes

If you’re considering lifting your home, now is a good time to do it. You could lower flood insurance rates significantly by lifting or constructing above the base flood elevation for your area, according to FEMA.

  1. My Home Sustained Severe Flood Damage.
    When your home or other structure is flooded or sustains damage, it might feel like there’s no other choice than to rebuild or move. The decision to move from your current home can be a heart-wrenching one. But demolishing and rebuilding your current residence is not the only viable option available to you. You can repair your home, and then have it lifted off the ground. Once it’s raised, a new foundation and pilings can be built underneath.
  2. I Want To Protect My Home From Future Floods.
    House lifting is becoming increasingly sensible to prepare and protect your home, especially if you live in the Outer Banks or near the North Carolina coast. By choosing to raise your home, you’ll not only protect it from water damage, but also can significantly lower your flood insurance costs and gain peace of mind for the future safety of your most valuable asset.

Homeowners all along the eastern coast from New Jersey to Georgia have trusted us to elevate their homes. We can help you too.
