4 Ways to Better Protect Your Home from Flood Damage

  1. Install a sump pump: A sump pump can help remove water from your basement or crawl space before it causes damage.

  2. Elevate your home: Elevating your home, or building it on stilts, can help protect it from flooding caused by rising water.

  3. Improve drainage: Make sure your property has proper drainage to prevent water from pooling around your home. This can include installing a French drain or regrading your yard.

  4. Use flood barriers: Flood barriers, such as sandbags or flood gates, can help protect your home from water entering during a flood event.
