THE HOUSE RAISING PROCESS
Raising your home is a significant change for many, so it’s important to find a knowledgeable team who will make the entire process as smooth and straightforward as possible. At Deano’s Restumping & House Raising, we make things easy for our customers by breaking down the house raising process into three main steps:
- Planning and preparation
- Obtaining council approvals
- Raising and securing the building
PLANNING AND PREPARATION
Our team will work with you to discuss the final result you would like to achieve for your home. Once we understand your requirements, we will begin to plan the entire process and prepare your house for raising. During this step, we will determine a timeline for the job, finalise a quote for our work, and disconnect your home from any services/utilities.
OBTAINING COUNCIL APPROVALS
In the Ipswich and Somerset regions we service, you may need to obtain building approval from the council before raising your home. Thankfully, our team can speed this process up for you. We’ll obtain all necessary drafting and engineering plans and get them reviewed and approved by either the council or an appointed certifier.
RAISING AND SECURING THE BUILDING
Once everything has been prepared and all the necessary permissions have been acquired, we can move on to raising, securing, and reconnecting your home. We’ll lift your home off its old foundations and hold it in place with a temporary sturdy framework. When your home is properly fixed in its desired position, we will build new permanent foundations beneath it to keep it raised for good before reconnecting your utilities.
RAISING A HOUSE?
House raising is a versatile and transformative solution that can address a range of issues while enhancing the value and functionality of your home. Let’s explore the key reasons why you should consider this innovative approach:
FOUNDATION REPAIR AND
Foundation problems are a homeowner’s nightmare, often caused by factors like moisture infiltration and shifting soil. These issues can compromise the structural integrity of your house over time. Raising your house allows our experts to access the foundation easily, repair any damage, and fortify it for long-term stability. By addressing these concerns promptly, you can safeguard your investment and enjoy peace of mind.
FLOOD MITGATION AND
If your property is located in a flood-prone area, raising your house is a proactive strategy to protect it from the threat of rising waters. Flooding can result in significant damage to your property and belongings. Elevating your home not only minimizes the risk of flooding but also ensures that your living space remains safe and dry even during extreme weather events.
ADDITIONAL LIVING SPACE AND
House lifting offers the unique advantage of creating additional living space or even a basement beneath your existing structure. This newfound space can be used for various purposes, from expanding your family’s living quarters to creating a recreation room or additional storage. By increasing your home’s footprint, you not only enhance its functionality but also boost its market value, making it a wise investment for the future.
IMPROVED VENTILATION AND
HEALTHIER LIVING ENVIRONMENT:
Raising your house can lead to improved airflow and reduced humidity within your living spaces. This contributes to a healthier indoor environment by minimizing the risk of mold and mildew growth. Adequate ventilation can also enhance comfort and well-being for you and your family, making your home a more pleasant place to live.
In conclusion, house raising offers a multitude of benefits beyond addressing structural concerns. It’s a strategic investment that can improve your home’s resilience, functionality, and overall quality of life. Whether you need foundation repairs, flood mitigation, extra space, or better ventilation, our experts at Deano’s Restumping & House Raising are here to help you unlock your home’s full potential through our specialized house raising services.
