Florida House Raising and Shoring

In Florida, house-raising is fundamental to storm damage prevention and provides a major improvement to the living space. Ducky Johnson has the expertise in Florida House Raising and Shoring to help preserve the beautiful homes all along our nation’s coast, including Pensacola, FL.

Ducky Johnson has a long history of lifting concrete, masonry, steel, and wood structures, as well as those that are already elevated and need to go higher!

Raising your Florida home is a good choice because…

  • Elevation helps protect your property from possible storm damage
  • Elevation preserves neighborhoods and the local community
  • Elevation prevents the addition of waste to our landfills
  • Elevation ensures a reasonable premium for your flood insurance
  • Elevation raises the value of your home

During the Florida House Raising and Shoring process, Ducky Johnson offers:

Pre-Elevation Site Visits

Ducky Johnson can send an Elevation Consultant to your house who will measure your house, take pictures, and check site conditions. The gathered information is then used to create an elevation proposal, which is then brought back to you for your review and approval.

Engineering

All site visits and projects are designed, conducted, and structurally engineered by a state licensed structural engineering firm.

House Design

The in-house designers at Ducky Johnson will work with you to produce an elevated structure that both compliments your décor preferences and stays within the grant guidelines.

Turn Key

All of the grant paper work, engineering, elevation certificates, building permits, elevation processes, exterior structure finishes, landscaping, and final building inspections will be handled by Ducky Johnson.

Education

We work hard to answer every question you may have about Severe Repetitive Loss (SRL), the Hazard Mitigation Grant Program (HMGP), and the general elevation process. We will make sure you understand everything that happens with your home during the elevation process.
