FEMA’s guide offers several different options for obtaining an elevation certificate. Should you need a new EC, or if your bank notifies you that you need one, it is crucial to hire licensed professionals that will take you through every step of the process. At GHA and Hodge, we staff licensed land surveyors and engineers who have decades of experience dealing with flood issues and FEMA in all of Connecticut. As we always like to say, “if you think it’s expensive hiring a good surveyor, try hiring a cheap one.” It may sound counterintuitive, but it is best to work with licensed professionals who not only have experience dealing with FEMA, but who also use state-of-the-art technology and strict data quality standards to make sure our clients are receiving accurate information on their EC. This means that we avoid mistakes that could cost us or our clients down the road. Should any issues arise, or should you need to discuss your EC with insurance providers or FEMA, GHA & Hodge will have been involved in every step of the process from the beginning, and will be well-equipped to deal with these issues.
Godfrey-Hoffman & Hodge are also “Certified Surveyors” through Smart Vent, Inc. This means our clients are entitled to a full review by an independent certified flood manager, as well as a detailed Flood Risk Evaluation Report which includes insurance premium rates and mitigation evaluations.
Flood insurance, elevation certificates, and map amendments can seem daunting, confusing or expensive at times. By going through a licensed professional, you can ensure that the process is done correctly and in a thorough manner the first time.
