More than two years after Superstorm Sandy, there are still thousands of houses that need to be rebuilt for families can return home. Last summer, victims were upset when a no construction during the summer policy was enforced. This rule was to benefit tourists and others visiting the shore during the summer months. Officials did not want visitors to have to deal with the noise and inconvenience of construction. But what about the families of these homes? Why are we not thinking about how inconvenient it is for them to still not have a place to call home.
New Jersey Senate President Stephen Sweeney is focused on passing legislation to help these families. He is introducing a bill that will help Sandy victims financially as well as increase standards and safeguards to protect them. The overall goal is to speed up the recovery process.

Home Lifting Experts
After Superstorm Sandy, many families have decided to elevate their home. There are several reasons for doing this. The first is that it will protect you from future floods. Living at the shore or by any body of water puts you and your home at risk. By elevating your home above flood levels, your home has a better chance of surviving the flood. Lifting your home also has financial benefits. Because your home is now above flood levels, its risks of being damaged are significantly lower. This will help reduce your insurance rates and increase the value of your home. Additionally, the views from your lifted home will be beautiful.
