Reduce Flood Insurance Rate

Under the Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012, you could save more than $90,000 over 10 years if you raise your house 3 feet above the Base Flood Elevation.

The BFE is the computed elevation to which floodwater is anticipated to rise during a base flood and is a regulatory requirement for the elevation or floodproofing of structures. Once a structure is raised, only the foundation remains exposed to flooding while the living area is safe from damage.
