A recent change by the West Palm Beach city commission now makes it mandatory for new homes to be built higher than they were allowed in the past. This change will, hopefully, help homeowners get better deals on with their FEMA National Flood Insurance Program. The new rule will also improve the city's overall flood rating, which also helps to determine insurance rates. Here is a short portion of that story:
“West Palm Beach will require new homes to be elevated so that property owners' flood insurance premiums are lowered. The city commission took a final vote Monday to change its construction rules in a way that will qualify property owners for a bigger discount on federal flood insurance.”

At Quantum Floors, we applaud this action, because we have seen too many homeowners and business owners come to us in the past for new flooring because their old flooring was damaged by water. While we enjoy selling the hardwood flooring West Palm Beach, FL wants, we prefer to sell because our customers are looking for new hardwood flooring on their own, and not because of a destructive weather event.
One of the reasons why so many homeowners and business come to us when they want the best hardwood flooring in West Palm Beach, FL, is because we specialize in wood flooring. It is true that other flooring stores in our area carry wood flooring, but they do not have the huge selection that we have available. Our customers are very appreciative of the fact that they can find what they want when they shop with us at one of our showrooms. We have showrooms in Palm Beach Gardens, Boynton Beach and Fort Lauderdale FL.
For new homes that will be built, and for current homes, we encourage the installation of engineered hardwood flooring for West Palm Beach, FL homes (and businesses).
