New Jersey House Lifting

Protect Your New Jersey Home from Catastrophic Damage

Over the years, the Jersey Shore area has been subjected to extremely damaging and dangerous weather resulting in several homes being ruined beyond repair.

Protect your home from catastrophic damage, especially in areas like the Jersey Shore that are prone to severe weather events. With our house lifting services, you can add a new layer of protection to your ground-level home, safeguarding your property against future flood damage and rising sea levels.

The Need for House Lifting in New Jersey

The Jersey Shore has been heavily impacted by destructive weather, including the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy in 2012. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Hurricane Sandy caused an estimated $65 billion in damage, with many homes along the shore suffering irreparable harm. In response to this widespread devastation, insurance companies and regulatory agencies have implemented stricter guidelines for flood protection, leading to an increase in house lifting projects to mitigate future risks.

Benefits of House Lifting

Mitigating Flood Damage

Elevating your home above the base flood elevation (BFE) can significantly reduce the risk of flood damage during extreme weather events and storm surges. According to FEMA, raising a home just one foot above the BFE can result in a 30% reduction in flood insurance premiums.

Enhancing Resilience

By raising your home and strengthening its foundation, you can increase its resilience to natural disasters, protecting your investment and ensuring the safety of your family.

Compliance with Regulations

Many homes along the Jersey Shore are subject to regulatory requirements mandating elevation to meet flood zone standards. Our house lifting services help homeowners comply with these regulations while ensuring the structural integrity of their properties.
