House Raising


House Raising

House raising is a common practice throughout Brisbane and surrounding areas. The process involves temporarily separating a house from the foundations using hydraulic jacks. The home is then raised to a new level and replacement supports are installed. This is a building niche that requires a very particular skills and understanding.

While it is important to ensure that your home is raised by the correct people, once done there are a plethora of benefits. Some homeowners will choose to build within the newly created space. Others will choose to leave the space free.
There are a number of reasons to raise a home:

  • Protecting against flood damage
  • Improving views
  • Carports and Garages
  • Creating a secondary residence such as granny flat or student accommodation
  • Provide more liveable space for the family

 
House raising is so popular throughout the Brisbane region thanks to several key reasons. A majority of the existing homes in Brisbane are built in the traditional Queenslander style. These homes are perfect candidates for house raising. Similarly, Post-War Homes (which are plentiful throughout the region) are also primed and ready for raising.
Flood relief is another factor that influences the decision to raise a home.
