How much does it cost to raise a house?


Factors to consider about the cost to raise a house

If it is to ignore the flood damage or even add another story below the home, a lot of house owners are raising the homes. Eventually, the average budget to life a home is really not expensive and can normally go anywhere into the budget.

The massive or bigger your home or more this weight, the more complicated the procedure turn out to be. More weight needs a plethora of laborers and also heavier machinery. As such, a two-story home will almost always cost more to rise than a one-story home.

The foundation

If your house only flooded, then the chances are high that the bottom floor will get damaged. In fact, if it is below your house, then lifting the damaged property is also quite a daunting task too. You will have to be extremely careful while lifting the building as well. More often the not, there will be needed the repairs before raising the house.

Height of the lift

If you are lifting your property because of a bad foundation, then all you need is to repair the base. You need to save it with the new foundation with concrete or even helical piers.

Pricing and permission

The budget is also stated by the weight and the size of the construction. The house also needs legal permission for rising as well.


Framing, sill plates, ancillary, and egresses even affect the price to raise the building. For instance, if the framing of the home is rotted, then the structure is not weak.

Materials and Labor

Every building activity needs materials and labor. The expenditure on these two factors affects the cost margin significantly.

Designing of the landscape

The entire redesigning of the landscape simply ensures the growth and expansion of a solid foundation to carry the weight load of the building.
