House Lifting

There are several reasons where lifting your home or building can be a viable way to protect it and improve it: prevent flooding, add a story, add head room in a basement, or increase space in a commercial building.

Every year, some areas of the country get more rain than the local rivers, canals, and storm drains can handle. Flooding poses a threat to homes and businesses in these communities.

If your home or business is in one of these areas and has ever been flooded, we can help. Elevating your structure above the documented flood plain* will help protect your building from big storms. In many cases, lifting your building will cut flood insurance premiums drastically.

Protect Your Home from Flood Damage

Whether your structure needs to be raised 8 inches or more than 12 feet, we can handle the project with ease. Our Unified Hydraulic Jacking System is the latest in structural lifting technology. The hydraulic jacking pump synchronizes the pressure to the jacks so that the entire building lifts evenly and steadily. This keeps drywall or plaster cracks to a bare minimum. We support the structure in place while your mason builds the foundation underneath.

Lift Your Home and Build a Story Under It

Did you know that you could add a story under a lifted house?

If you need to add a story to your house, you don’t have to waste time and money removing and rebuilding a perfectly good roof, not to mention cleaning or remodeling the story just beneath the roof. We can elevate the existing structure to just above the new desired height (typically between 9 to 12 feet). A new wood floor system is then built on the existing foundation walls and exterior frame walls are set in place. Once all the bearing points are in place, our crew will return to set the house onto the newly-constructed first floor.

What Is the Next Step?

Yes, there’s a lot that goes into successfully lifting a structure. You might have a lot of questions and probably some concerns about the process. Contact us now to talk about your project »

Prepare For House Lifting

Have you considered lifting or moving your house? It is a valuable way to protect your investment in your home, and is an increasing option for owners trying to save a historic building or raise their house above the flood zone.

House lifting involves raising a home above its current foundation and building a new foundation underneath. House lifting projects are most common along the coast of the eastern United States, especially in the wake of a natural disaster like a hurricane. This would involve lifting the house to the required Flood Protection Elevation (FPE).

House lifting can also be done to add a new first story or expand a basement or crawlspace (in conjunction with an excavation service). By lifting your home you can save your home, add value and usable space to your home, and avoid future damage.

There’s a lot that goes into lifting a house. If you are unsure of all the steps you need to consider when lifting or moving a house, we’ve created an outline of the basic steps that are crucial to any house moving project.
