West Long Branch, NJ—Mark of Excellence now offers House Lifting Services in NJ. Many homes damaged by Superstorm Sandy are now in new flood zones designated by revised FEMA maps. As a result of FEMA’s redesignations, many homes will need to be lifted in order to qualify for more affordable rates under the federal National Flood Insurance Program. If the house isn’t lifted, insurance costs could be 10 times the normal premium amount, making needed flood insurance unaffordable for many residents.
As would be expected, the storm and its flooding aftermath have increased demand for many services, including building restoration. But with FEMA’s flood map revisions there has been an instantaneous surge in demand for house lifting. House lifting has gone from a quiet, dormant business to now barely being able to keep up with the current demand. With house lifting requirements becoming part of FEMA’s flood regulations in order to obtain reasonably priced flood insurance, house lifting services has become among the most requested types of major construction post-Sandy.
“Because of this almost overnight high demand, consumers need to be very cautious when approached by house lifting companies. Many out-of-town companies are heading our way. Deal locally when you can, and make sure the company is fully insured, licensed, and able to obtain all the necessary permits,” said Mark Elia, owner of Mark of Excellence.
