House Elevating in New Orleans
Being below sea level in most of south Louisiana and along the Gulf Coast, we understand the damage that heavy rain and hurricanes can cause to our homes. One way that homeowners in the area are protecting themselves is by elevating their homes. Home elevation brings your home above the projected base flood elevation and helps to prevent from flooding.
Our Team Elevates Your Home
Structural elevation is a process which can be used to reduce the risk of flooding by raising an existing home above the base flood elevation. Having lifted over 1,500 houses in Louisiana alone, the elevation team at PSMS is well experienced in lifting all foundation types and layouts.
Upon completion of an elevation project, the home is secured and stabilized upon its newly constructed foundation system designed by structural engineers. Homes which are elevated above the government mandated height requirement for flood hazard typically qualify for a reduced annual flood insurance rate.
