|Elevated First Floor|
New homes in floodprone areas are protected from flood damage by building them so the living space is above expected flood levels. Learn more about elevated foundations and development regulations.
This section of the web includes information about providing proper foundations for the new home, creating the lowest floor - at grade or above grade, for flood protection, and making sure the foundation and structure are protected from subterrarean termites.
