Structural elevation around the puget sound
The Puget Sound is a beautiful place to live. We have beautiful weather, but it can be unpredictable. If you live in the Puget Sound and want to protect your home or business, you might need to consider structural elevation. This can keep your home safe from inclement weather like floods, and also be a way to fix any damage there might to your base structure which is often invisible before your structure is raised.
Structural elevation in the Puget Sound depends on many different geographical and governmental regulations. Things like the geotechnical properties of the soil and high risk flood zones are natural causes. Other regulations include things like building elevation plans, structural size of a home, and flood zone regulations also might have you looking at structural elevation in the Puget Sound.
How does structural elevation work? Here in the Puget Sound, Kunkel Moving is here to answer all of your questions. Most people tend to assume there will be damage to the walls and windows of your structure. This is actually incorrect. When we are lifting a structure here in the Puget sound, we spend the whole day slowly lifting a few inches at a time. This means you can most likely leave your furniture, and even your dishes, just how they are in the home. In most cases the sheet rock will stay intact!
After we complete the structural elevation, we make sure the project is aesthetically pleasing. We will make sure your floors are level, and bring them up to current codes. Raising a structure in the Puget Sound is a great way to keep you and your family safe. It will save you money on flood insurance, making the investment well worth it, possibly saving you money in the end.
