Why Should I Raise My Home?
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) states that: Along the Gulf Coast, a storm surge is the number one threat to life and property. New Orleans is frequently in the path of hurricanes, of course, but there are also other factors that intensify the problems of these catastrophic events. Hurricanes such as Katrina, Ike, and Gustav have exposed the vulnerability of the city of New Orleans.
To lessen some of these threats, Acme House Raising in New Orleans has begun. Acme House Raising is blazing the trail.
As most residents know, New Orleans is shaped like a bowl. When a storm surge is produced by a hurricane, water may flood and stay in the bowl until the pumps remove the excess water. The severe flooding during Hurricane Katrina even caused houses to be swept away. If a home wasn’t swept away, it was surely damaged and, often times, beyond repair.
This is why home elevation in New Orleans is so important to our communities and neighborhoods. With home elevation, families face considerably less risk of flooding with the additional benefit of paying less for flood insurance. Also, your family may be eligible for financial assistance for your New Orleans residence.
The city of New Orleans and all of the the surrounding areas felt an intense pressure to provide a solution for local homeowners. House Raising, along with the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP) that coincides, are just the solutions you are looking for.
