Roubion Shoring & Construction has ample experience raising New Orleans houses. We make sure that your home will be raised safely and with the utmost care. We use a fully computerized jacking system to elevate both slab and pier houses. We have been doing this for generations on and we will continue to rise you to a higher quality of life.
Why you should raise your New Orleans house
Large areas in New Orleans, like Lakeview, Gentilly, Mid-City, Hollygrove, Broadmoor, Upper & Lower 9th Ward , New Orleans East, are at or below sea level. Your home might already have had flood damage from an earlier storm or even from street flooding after heavy rains.
Elevating your home will reduce the risk of your valuable house being flooded again. Even if you have not experienced any flooding before but your house is still below the flood protection elevation (FPE), it is important to raise your house to avoid any future losses.
Benefits of raising your house are:
- Decrease the risk of flood damage
- Lower your flood insurance premiums
- Increase the value of your property
There can be additional benefits if you are raising your home more than 8 feet. In this case you can create extra storage space or you can even build a drive-under garage.
Costs of raising your house in New Orleans
