Lindenhurst nonprofit to discuss home elevation

Lindenhurst families speak Wednesday, May 28, 2014, about the struggles they've faced in the 19 months since superstorm Sandy ravaged their neighborhood, and how their homes have still not been fully repaired. As New York Rising's offers for house elevations and buyouts are coming in, they are weighing the costs and benefits of staying versus leaving. Will the money will be enough? Can they envision life on a block that regularly floods, where the future is uncertain?  (Credit: Newsday / Chris Ware)

A Lindenhurst nonprofit on Tuesday night is hosting an information workshop on home elevation.

Adopt-a-House, a volunteer group dedicated to helping superstorm Sandy victims, is bringing in Westbury-based Zucaro House Lifters Inc. to explain the home-elevation process. A representative from Zucaro will go through the steps of a basic house lift as well as the considerations for different types of houses, such as those with crawl spaces. After the presentation there will a question-and-answer session.

According to Lindenhurst Village officials, 53 elevation permits have been issued to residents but another 127 homeowners who are required to elevate their homes have yet to file for a permit.
