What Is An Engineered Flood Vent?
An Engineered Flood Vent is a vent designed to release hydrostatic pressure. Hydrostatic pressure is the weight of standing water. The more water that fills in a crawlspace or basement, the more pressure it experiences. More than three feet of standing water can collapse most homes foundation. Installing flood vents will aid in releasing this water pressure. Homes in flood zones can help protect their home by installing flood vents.
