Building Moves and Lifts
House raising involves the same steps of moving a house, but instead of carting the house away, it sits elevated above its foundation. The ground below the home is excavated, allowing room to expand downward. The new flooring and foundation are poured, and then the home is placed on its new foundation. House raising might be done if the foundation is damaged, or if the homeowner wants to expand her home. Raising the house is cheaper than building on top of the structure, saving as much as 50 percent.Raising your building or home is an answer to improve your equity. Raising a house to extend the height of the basement or to build a full basement is an effective way to double the square footage.

Our Unified Mobile Jacking System insures you the safest and the latest technology available. Unified hydraulic jacking systems allow collective or individual control of hydraulic jacks located within the supports. Each unified jack is on a separate hydraulic circuit and failure in one jack will not cause pressure loss in the other jacks.These systems operate from a central control panel on the hydraulic unit, allowing the operator to elevate and level the structure in one operation.
