Ward Home Services is helping "pick up" the NJ Shore!

Ward Home Services is at the forefront when it comes to house lifting at the NJ Shore. After Sandy, house lifting quickly became the most common renovation needed by homeowners #1, because they flooded and needed to get out of harms way, #2 to meet criteria for their ICC claim or RREM, HMGP grant funding, or #3 to avoid catastrophic flood premiums as result from the “Biggert-Waters Flood Reform Act”.
