SMART Flood Vents
SMART Vents, however, are quite different in terms of functionality than Temp-Vents®. SMART Vents are flood venting systems that are manufactured specifically in areas where flooding occurs most. SMART Vents are flood vents that are considered FEMA-compliant and are accepted by most insurance carriers. They can help lower your flood insurance.
SMART FLOOD VENTS
Authorized Flood Vent Installer
Flood vents help protect a property located in a flood zone area by preventing water pressure buildup that can destroy walls and foundations. Since Hurricane Sandy, the flood zones for most properties along the Jersey Shore have changed.
Insurance policies now require flood insurance on homes that either never needed it or were not at risk for flooding prior to this event. Since Sandy, the flood plains have changed, making homeowners within the expanded flood zone areas look for ways to reduce their flood insurance premiums.
We utilize many methods depending on how the home is built and the flood zone location. We offer SMART VENTS because they are the most advanced flood protection on the market.
SMART VENT products are one of the only flood venting systems accepted by FEMA and compliant with the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) regulations.
SMART VENT is a Certified Flood Vent by ICC-ES*. SMART VENTs offer many series that perform various functions, from flood protection and natural air ventilation to the Insulated FLOOD VENT series. SMART VENTS dual function vents allow air to flow through the louvers by automatically opening and closing depending on the temperature. SMART VENTS are flood vents that allow the entry and exit of floodwaters through a 3-inch opening. These vents automatically tip when severe water pressure is due to storms or flooding.
