Why you should raise your house in Plaquemines Parish

Many properties in Plaquemines Parish like Belle Chasse, Buras, Port Sulphur, and Braithwaite, are at or below sea level. If your house already has experienced flood damage from a storm or from street flooding after heavy rains, you will know that the elevation of your home is an issue.

Elevating your home will minimize the risk of your home being flooded again. Even if you have not had any flooding yet, but your house is still below the flood protection elevation (FPE), raising your house will avoid possible future damage.

See the Plaquemines Parish Flood maps.

Benefits of raising your home are:

  • Lower the risk of flood damage
  • Decrease 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.
