House lifting or raising is the process of lifting a house to a higher level then it presently is. Generally new foundations are installed or existing one’s extended to the new level.
This will vary significantly depending on house footprint, ancillary structures, site access, condition of existing floor, number of services to be disconnected, protection required of delicate items such as bath tiling, marble kitchen tops etc.
The average cost for a typical 120 square meter house we have found to be $25,000. Which is pretty affordable when one considers renovation costs, say first floor addition where the existing footings would have to be strengthened firstly.
