Decks, porches & stairs

“Hi, this is Jason here from W.A. Building Movers, today we want to talk about when you lift a home, what happens to your decks and porches? If you have a masonry stoop basically that is going to be demolished and you’re going to rebuild your porch or your new front steps to the new height of your new elevation. However, if you do have a wood frame front porch or a wood-framed deck this can be raised into the house with the house during the lift. That said you are going to build these staircases to now meet the new elevation and you do need to take into account your setbacks to make sure that we are going to raise your house and your 10 feet from your sidewalk and you’re going to raise your house a new will say another six or seven feet that your new stairs do not take yourself into the sidewalk or actually into the street. There are a lot of configurations you can see where you can change your stairways to meet the new elevation but this is one item that you’re definitely have to pay attention to when you’re raising your house how are you going to set up your stairs to now be in accordance with the setbacks and required by the town and also put you in the condition where it’s actually usable. This is Jason again from W.A. Building Movers. Any other questions feel free to reach out to us at info@wabuildingmovers.com, of course check us out on YouTube W.A. Building Movers. Thank you.”
