Lifting your New Jersey home above the Base Flood Elevation protects you from future flooding and lowers insurance premiums. We handle all aspects of the lifting process, from engineering to occupancy.
NEW JERSEY FLOOD ZONE DESIGNATIONS:
- A ZONE: Concerned with rising waters and your home can be elevated on concrete clock that is reinforced with re-bar and filled with grout.
- AE ZONE: Concerned with rising waters and 1.5ft to 3 feet of wave action. Your foundation will depend on soil conditions, either block or pilings.
- V ZONE: Must be raised on pilings due to over 3 ft wave action
The final elevation of your house lift will depend on your flood zone.
TYPES OF FOUNDATIONS POPULAR IN NEW JERSEY:
Wood pilings are tried and true; however, the number required leaves little usable space underneath. Also, your house must be temporarily relocated so the piles can be driven.
Concrete pilings can be either single piece or segmented so you do not have to move your home out of the way. Also, with concrete pilings, we use 50-70% less pilings so there is plenty of room to park underneath. Cost is comparable to wood pilings in single segments.
Helical piles, though efficient, are more time consuming to build, as well as 50-60% more costly.
The most important part of the lifting process is to determine your soil quality and then use a qualified, code knowledgeable engineer.
