Elevating Structures - Elevating Buildings
Flood Prone Property Elevation
Is your property in need of meeting new strict flood zone requirements? Are you concerned about the risk of flooding or the complete destruction of your property from ocean front storms? Some insurance companies will not insure properties that are too low in flood zone areas.
Flood Zone Restrictions - Do you need to elevate your property to meet zoning restrictions or insurance concerns? Flood zone restrictions and property elevation requirements are a fast-growing need in hurricane prone areas like Florida and other coastal areas throughout the country. Some homeowners are unable to get insurance because they do not meet current zoning regulations. In most cases, elevating the structure will meet these requirements.
Add Value to Your Home - You can add a second story to your home to increase your square footage of living space and to add value to your home. Raising a structure removes the need for demolishing and rebuilding the roof as well as removes the need for strengthening the existing structure.
Add A Garage - Want or need a garage but don't have the room on your property? By raising the structure higher, you can add a garage underneath the structure, this will add significant value to your home, well above the cost of raising the structure. This is an especially popular option on beach properties where real estate is at a premium.
Add Higher Ceilings to Your Existing Structure - A lot of older homes had very low ceiling heights as was customary at the time. If you are planning a remodel and the roof structure is in good shape, now might be the time to consider higher ceilings to gain the open concept that is popular in todays market. This will undoubtedly add value to your home.
Permits and Zoning Advantages - By raising your structure you can minimize zoning restrictions and requirements that can be timely and costly when trying to build an addition, a standalone garage or other structure.
