Structural Assessments and Feasibility Studies
Flooding can cause extensive damage to a house. Countless numbers are affected by it with each hurricane or heavy rain event. The time and cost to repair is significant. Elevating the house out of the flood plain and above flood waters is a way to guarantee flood waters will never damage a house again. This is a significant investment but for many homeowners, there is financial assistance through programs such as the Flood Mitigation Assistance Grant Program (FMA) and the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP).
