People Lift Their Homes

House lifting is a growing industry, not just because of the risk of flood damage, but for adding basements, extra floors and more.  Thanks to modern technology it has become more economical and safer to lift houses for a variety of purposes.  Heavy equipment and hydraulics mean that ordinary homeowners can have their homes lifted to repair or replace a bad foundation, add a basement or increase the size of a crawlspace.  In some cases house lifting is now considered the more convenient, alternative method.  Some people choose to have their houses lifted to add an extra floor instead of an extension.  Lifting just a few inches at a time, the house can be carefully raised to make possible everything from adding a new floor to increasing the height of the house for better views.
