Once you receive your letter saying you are eligible for a home elevation grant ; The grant authority will tell you to get three bids or estimates. Not everything is equal. its important to know what they pay for and what they don’t. Also when they pay for it and when they don’t. Meaning just because it was paid for on another house does not mean it will be paid for on your house. If a Home Owner or Contractor is not knowledgeable about the home elevation program; which many times is the case. You may have to pay for grant allowed items. We take the time to see what is allowed by the grant program for your specific type of home. Unfortunately if you send in a less expensive quote that does not included all grant allowed items sometimes it too late and you will be stuck footing a bill.The grant program in many cases goes by the lowest estimate. Not always the correct for your house estimate.
Many of times this requires of talking with your grant mitigation specialist about your specific project.
