In some instances, it may be necessary to lift a house in order to complete certain work, such as basement addition or foundation construction. Whole houses can even be lifted and moved when needed. This is a highly precise and technical process that is generally only used when required, but can allow homeowners to do many things with their homes that would otherwise be impossible. At Galveston Foundation Repair, we offer professional house raising services, also commonly known as house jacking or house lifting. We ensure your house is safely and carefully lifted from its foundation and propped up on sturdy supports.
Purpose of House Raising
There are many reasons why a customer may want their house raised. In our line of work, we most often perform house lifts in order to replace a crumbling or otherwise failed foundation. Of course, there are other common reasons for house raising as well. Some homeowners wish to raise their homes due to issues with flooding, or to add a basement and extra square footage. Whatever the purpose, Galveston Foundation Repair offers the best top affordable house raising service in the area for customers.
House Raising Methods
Lifting an entire building from its foundation is no easy feat. As you can imagine, it requires a team of foundation experts and proper heavy duty equipment. Keeping the structure safely propped up is another concern. Typically helical piers or other types of piers are used as supports. We can raise your home as high as needed to accomplish any necessary work. This is a job you want to entrust to the professionals, and there is no one who compares in knowledge, experience, and skill to the foundation experts at Galveston Foundation Repair.
