Understanding flood risk is the first step in keeping your home and possessions out of flood trouble. A very small amount of water in a structure can accumulate astronomical expenses. If you are in an area that is susceptible to flooding or if there is history of flooding on your property, evaluate the options for eliminating the flood risk, and implement the solution. The type of flood risk will determine the remedy for eliminating the risk.
Typical solutions for flooding issues:
- Elevate the structure
- Relocate the structure
- Flood-proof the structure and all mechanicals (plumbing, hvac, electric, appliances, etc.)
- Obtain/Maintain Flood Insurance
