Centerline Construction Chat: Renovation Series Part I – Elevated Renovation

Categories: Cement, Centerline Construction Chat, Home Renovation | Posted: April 22, 2013

Have you thought about doing a renovation on your house? Jeff is doing 3-part Renovation series of videos. Below is the first video about putting columns on a flood plane.


Elevated Renovation –There is a concrete column in this case – this home is in the floodplain in St. James Plantation, NC. There are a couple different ways to do an elevated house. You can do it on pilings or you can do it on masonry units (concrete columns).

These are built out of block filled with masonry or concrete, so the CMU is laid with a 5/8 threaded rod in the center of it for wind hold down, then the entire column is filled with concrete.

So depending where you are in a floodplain or where you are in St. James Plantation or Eastern NC determine how high the columns need to be. The outer surface has been parged with the cement material to give it a sand finish and you can go back over the top of it with a stucco or a variety of different types of finishes.
