House Raising After Superstorm Sandy — February 27 2013


William Rumbolo was facing a situation many New Jersey residents are dealing with in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy: Lifting his Ortley Beach home to comply with new federal flood elevation guidelines. Since NJ-based house movers were completely booked, Mr. Rumbolo called on Wolfe House & Building Movers to raise his home 11 feet, which is 2 feet above the minimum requirement for the area.

The Asbury Park Press reported on this house lifting project.
