Home-elevation expert urges more industry training

The unfortunate house-raising mishap that resulted in the destruction of two homes in Highlands, NJ [Two NJ houses destroyed as Sandy elevation slips up] reminded us of
the video interview we recently conducted with structure-elevation expert Rod Scott.

Rod, who earned his chops in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina, has been visiting communities along the New Jersey coast that were devastated by Superstorm Sandy. He estimates that up to 150,000 structures will need to be elevated over the next 20 years and he’s calling for greater training, certification and insurance requirements for companies offering building-elevation services to the public.

You might want to listen to what he has to say in the video below.
