Home Elevation Services

The Great Flood of August 2016 devastated many homes in Louisiana. many areas are now requiring that before you renovate your flooded home, that the home is elevated to a height determined by your local municipality. To assist you with the monetary burden of raising your home, there are grants in place by FEMA and HMGP. Marquez Construction has knowledgeable staff members to help you through this application process. Once approved for one of these grants or other funding is in place, Marquez Construction can help you elevate your home. There are several methods we can use to raise your home. The best method will depend on your home and your current foundation. In most cases we are able to use a method called Monolithic Slab Elevation. This technique is used if your slab and footings are poured together. In this case we will tunnel under your structure and drive pilings exposing the footings or grade beams. We then push on the footings or grade beams to elevate your home.
