Remodel Building Codes and Flood Zone Regulations

Doc explains some of the building codes and flood zone regulations you may face if doing a remodel project.  Don’t rely solely on your contractor but do some of the research yourself.  It’s a great idea to meet with the local code office and review your plans before you start your project.

Base Flood or 100-year Flood means a flood having a recurrence interval that has a one­percent chance of being equaled or exceeded during any given year (1-­percent-­annual-­chance flood). The terms “one-­hundred-­year flood” and “one percent chance flood ” are synonymous with the term “100-­year flood”. The term does not imply that the flood will necessarily happen once every one hundred years.

Base Flood Elevation means the elevation shown on a FEMA Flood Insurance Rate Map for Zones AE, AH, AR, AR/A, AR/AE, AR/AH, and AR/AO that indicates the water surface elevation resulting from a flood that has a one percent chance of equaling or exceeding that level in any given year.
