Why you should raise your house in Jefferson Parish

Many properties in Jefferson, Gretna, Harahan, Kenner, Westwego, Grand Isle, Jean Lafitte, Barataria, Harvey, Marrero, and Metairie are at or below sea level. Maybe your house already had flood damage from an earlier storm or from street flooding after heavy rains.

To minimize the risk of your home being flooded again it is a good idea to elevate your house. Also in cases where you have not been exposed to flooding yet, but your house is still below the flood protection elevation (FPE), raising your house will avoid potential future losses.

See the Jefferson Parish Flood maps.

Benefits of raising your house are:

  • Decrease the risk of flood damage
  • Lower your flood insurance premiums
  • Increase the value of your property

If you consider raising your home more than 8 feet there are even more benefits. In that case you can create extra storage space or you can even build a drive-under garage.
