FEMA Best Practice Story Reveals No Flood Damage for Homes Due To Flood Vents During Hurricane Sandy

[SMART VENTS pictured in story and featured in homes] Surrounding neighborhood homes without compliant flood vents were not so fortunate. “If you look across the street, those garage doors were devastated,” Builder Ray Guzman said. “If we didn’t have those flood vents, the homes would not have been able to take the pressure from the water. They really saved us. We’re like a rose in the middle of a disaster.”

Beautiful Design Starts with a Structurally Sound Foundation. Smart Vent supports Architects with flood venting solutions that combine aesthetics and code compliance with certified performance. During a flood event, poorly protected homes will give way to hydrostatic pressure caused by quickly rising floodwater, crumbling foundations and destroying the structural integrity of the building.

Building Codes and FEMA Requirements state that flood venting is required for homes built in certain flood zones. Provide your clients with unparalleled protection and guarantee them the lowest possible NFIP Flood Insurance Premium by specifying SMART VENTS.

We’ve spent many years studying the science of flood mitigation and the effects flood waters could have on a poorly protected home. In fact, the SMART VENT Team is certified to instruct and provide learning credits to Architects, Builders, Certified Floodplain Managers, Code Officials, Engineers, Insurance Agents, Realtors, and Surveyors in many states.
