Are personal protection measures included in Flood Factor calculations?

Learn about personal flood risk reduction measures and Flood Factor.



At this time, a property’s Flood Factor is based on the likelihood of water reaching a building, and as such, personal adaptation features such as raised homes are not included in the calculation.


If a home already has flood reduction measures in place, it may reduce the risk to its structure. We encourage users to work with local floodplain managers or engineers to best understand what level of risk  personal flood reduction measures are built to withstand.
