Floodproofing.com Chosen to Protect Historic New Jersey Location
Mike's Seafood in Sea Isle, New Jersey needed a solution to protect the historic building from seasonal flooding and damage.
Mike's Seafood was hit hard in 2012 during Hurricane Sandy, causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in damage, lost equipment, and supplies. Due to its location so close to the shoreline, every storm season it faces the chance of flooding that would again threaten closures and loss of income for owner, Mike Monichetti.
"One thing is for certain," says Monichetti, "the floods are always coming, and you can never be too sure. We get flooded three times per year and needed a solution."
This worry caused Mike to reach out to the Flood Design Team at Floodproofing.com to come up with a solution.
After reviewing the location and elevation of the structure, the team suggested a variety of flood proofing solutions that could help protect the historic location and its contents. Together, they settled on using the Flex-Cover ® Door Flood Barrier to protect the openings of the restaurant. The Flex-Cover, created by ILC Dover, is a standard-sized door and window flood barrier known for its ease of deployment and the minimal intrusion the installation causes to the structure.
"This is the easiest application you could possibly want to have," adds Monichetti. It's remarkable how easy they are to install."
