Elevating Machinery or equipment above the base flood elevation (BFE).
BFE is how high the government says the floodwaters will go in the event of flooding.
When these items are below the BFE, you might be getting surcharged on your flood insurance premium.
If you home is elevated either over a garage, enclosure or crawlspace. You might want to consider adding flood vents. These will allow us to take the lowest flood out of the flood insurance rating consideration. The trick to adding vents is that the square inches of the hole need to be equal to or ideally more than the square feet of the area you are venting. There are engineered flood vents that can be smaller openings but let more water past.
Although this doesn’t affect flood insurance rates. You should consider flood damage-resistant materials, elevating machinery and other techniques that can keep your home safer.
In extream cases, you might want to reconsider the location of your property. Elevating your building, in some cases, you might be able to get access to government grants. If your home can’t be elevated then check out this link to see if this is an option for you.
Elevating your home 3 feet above the BFE can save up to sixty percent or more on your annual flood insurance premium. If you are 1 foot above the BFE it would save thirty percent. Here is a great resource to see if this option would work for you.
Sometimes your community can do some FEMA flood mitigation that will allow you to get community discounts. See if your community has discounts here.
Even though flood insurance can sometimes be expensive not having any coverage is far too risky. The average damage that is caused by a flood can be north of $35,000.
I only know two people in my circle of friends that have that kind of cash. Don’t let your financial future be washed away in the next flood. Get covered to stay safe. Even areas that are considered low risk are flooding.
