FLOOD ELEVATION CERTIFICATE
To determine the regulations to build on a property or to obtain an accurate insurance rate, a FEMA Flood Elevation Certificate is required. This certificate verifies several calculations that are particularly important if it is in a high-risk flood area including items like the elevation of the lowest finished floor of your house relative to the ground and the lowest utility servicing your building. This flood elevation certificate can only be prepared by locally licensed individuals, most commonly completed by land surveyors.
At McSteen, our crew will mark your property elevations and compare them to national vertical benchmarks. The information will be brought back into the office and reviewed by our licensed survey professional, who will complete the certification and get it ready to file with FEMA so all you have to do is send it in. Our team does the heavy lifting for your flood certification, so you don’t have to!
