Roubion Shoring & Construction is an expert in raising houses in St. John the Baptist, no matter if your house is built on a slab, or already raised on piers. We provide a complete and efficient turn-key elevation service for the permitting, elevating and construction finish. 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 house in St. John the Baptist Parish

Several areas in St. John the Baptist, like LaPlace and Garyville, 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 decrease the risk of your valuable property 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 losses in the future.

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 elevating your home in St. John the Baptist Parish

There are several grants available to help you pay for raising your house. The rules and available grants differ per parish. Please see our Elevation Grants Page for more detailed information.
