Home Raising

Raise Your Home To New Heights

House raising, also known as house lifting or home elevation, is a precise and strategic process aimed at increasing your home's height from the ground. This procedure significantly reduces the risk of flood damage, especially in flood-prone areas of Queensland.

It is a sustainable and cost-effective solution that not only protects your home but also enhances its overall value and aesthetic appeal.

    The Process

    The process begins with a comprehensive assessment of your property, including its structure, the soil conditions, and potential flood levels. Following this, we design a customized elevation plan that best suits your property and meets the Resilient Homes Fund's guidelines (where applicable).

    In the actual lifting process, our skilled team uses advanced hydraulic equipment to elevate your home safely and efficiently. Once the house is lifted to the desired height, a new foundation or robust stilt structure is built beneath it. Throughout the process, we take utmost care to minimize any disruption to your daily life.

    Additionally, raising your home opens up new possibilities for utilizing the space under your house, such as creating additional storage, living spaces, or car parking. It's an opportunity to rethink your living spaces while enhancing your home's flood resilience.
