Elevation Certificates

Es² provides accurate, cost-effective, high-quality elevation certificates to meet your flood insurance and permitting needs.

Having accurate elevation information is essential for prospective buyers and existing homeowners.  Incorrect elevation data in new construction can result in costly permitting delays and increased flooding risk.  For existing homeowners, an accurate elevation certificate is a must when obtaining flood insurance through FEMA.  Using state-of-the-art GPS and surveying equipment, Es²'s team of experienced professionals can prepare cost-effective and accurate elevation certificates for a wide variety of client needs, including:

Pre-purchase property elevation investigation to evaluate suitability of construction
Preliminary or Proposed Construction (including new mobile home installation)
During Construction (after slab has been formed)
Finished Construction (including existing structures) to obtain Flood Insurance
FEMA Letter of Map Amendment (LOMA) or Revision Based on Fill (LOMR-F)
