Why you should raise your house in St. Tammany Parish
Many properties in St. Tammany, Covington, Mandeville, Slidell, Abita Springs, Madisonville, Lacombe, and Bush, 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
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.
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.
