Elevating your home will raise your home a few inches for a minor repair of sagging, or raise it several feet to add garages, living space, views and to bring your home above flood elevation.

A typical house raise to FEMA Base Flood Elevation, with foundation would include the applicable items below. This is a standard list (for an existing home on a crawlspace) which addresses many issues. Some of these items may not be applicable to your project. A slab home would include building a new floor system once the house is raised. Your price is customized to fit your project by an onsite evaluation, and photos of your dwelling by an engineer.
