Why you should elevate your home in Tangipahoa Parish

Many areas in Hammond, Ponchatoula, Amite City, Independence, Kentwood, Roseland, Tangipahoa, Tickfaw, and others in Tangipahoa Parish are in the 1-percent-annual-chance Flood Hazard Area. If your house already has sustained flood damage from a storm or from street flooding after heavy rains, you will know that the elevation of your home is crucial.

Elevating your home will minimize the risk of your valuable property being flooded again. Even if you have not had any flooding yet, but your house is 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:

  • 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. You can then create extra storage space or you can even build a drive-under garage.

Costs of raising your house in Tangipahoa Parish
