Hank Marechal’s Home Elevation in Tangipahoa

Mr. Hank Marechel was one of the thousands impacted by the historic floods of 2016. After flooding twice in the same year, he was ready to do whatever it took to get back his peace of mind. 

After securing a grant from FEMA, Hank called Davie Shoring. Our team raised his slab home 4 ft., and now he and his family are safely living 3 ft. above the flood level. With his newly raised home, Hank has the peace of mind knowing that his family and his home are safe.

This 3,000 sq ft. slab home weighs 268 tons and we used 50 hydraulic jacks to raise it 4 ft.

One of the best parts of our job is getting to know local families and helping them safeguard their homes.
