You should not consider flood preparation and mitigation as an afterthought even if you live in an area that is not at high risk of flooding. Almost 25% of all flood insurance claims come from areas not in the high-risk category. Flooding is an expensive natural disaster across the country so you should know your options when it comes to mitigating the risk and protecting your asset.
Flood mitigation involves managing and controlling floodwaters. By putting certain measures in place you are reducing or eliminating flood risk exposure.
It can be difficult to determine if or how you should put a flood mitigation plan in place. The best solution is to hire the flood mitigation experts at Expert House Movers. We are trained to help you evaluate how best to mitigate the risk of flooding in your home and on your property, in addition to advising you on the best ways to redirect floodwaters when they are present.
The most effective means of flood mitigation, bar none, is house lifting. The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) suggests building your home above the base flood elevation for an area, which is the anticipated level of flooding. If your house already lies below that level, you can lift it to or above the minimum effective threshold.
We provide your home with effective stormwater management and flood defense to mitigate stormwater management emergencies.
