A new book, “How To Make Your Home Flood Safe” (ISBN: 978-1494923754; Aqua Explorers Inc) by Capt. Dan Berg, is the complete homeowners guide to protecting, rebuilding, or lifting your home to prevent future flood damage. Berg calls it “the first of its kind, regarding home safety, the protection from natural disasters and mitigation to prevent future damage.”
Berg describes the book thusly: “In recent years it has become apparent that natural disasters, including hurricanes and resulting floods, have become an increasingly common issue for homeowners. Repairing the destruction caused by these natural events has either put many in debt, or cost them their life savings. Now, with this informative new book, property owners can learn how to prepare in advance and protect their most valuable assets.”
“Flood Safe” is a 6×9 inch, full color, soft cover text which provides information designed to help property owners, prepare for, clean up after and prevent future flood damage. Readers will learn how to prevent floodwaters from entering their homes, avert mold growth as well as proper utilization of water-resistant construction materials.
The book contains a wealth of the author’s real-life solutions, learned from over 30 years of his own flood-related experiences. During the process of dealing with FEMA, public adjusters, surveyors, architects, building departments, house-lifting companies and contractors, the author learned – often the hard way – how the mitigation process works.
This text is packed with hundreds of full-color photographs and illustrations. Included is a complete pictorial record showing the author’s home-elevation project.
The author’s goal is to provide a resource that prevents homeowners from wasting valuable time and effort. He gives the information needed prior to, during and after a flood.
