Flood insurance is essential to protecting your property. The materials and resources we use to protect our property is a challenge. Where can I find information on materials that are acceptable for framing, sheathing and finishes for enclosures below elevated buildings?
FEMA’s Technical Bulletin (TB) 2, Flood Damage-Resistant Materials Requirements for Buildings Located in Special Flood Hazard Areas (FEMA, 2008), provides guidance on the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) regulations concerning the required use of flood-damage resistant construction materials for building components located below the base flood elevation (BFE) in Special Flood Hazard Areas in both Zone A and Zone V. TB 2 provides a classification scheme for flood damage-resistant materials, as well as a table of common building materials and describes whether they are allowed for use in construction below the BFEA
