Building Lifting : How to Lift a Building – New Jersey

We’re going to talk about a topic of actually using done lifting and building moving to be able to change up the use of the property. We have a few different examples of this scenario.

We’re going to be lifting a factory building the factory building was currently being used or as a car restoration building the current use of the building is now going to be changed to office space however the heights of the current building do not allow for two floors of office based to be created so we’re going to do is going to lift this building up additional 60 a new suitable foundation will be installed and now they can build true scores of office space and be able to use the use as they now desire in other instances.

We are going to be lifting a flat roof an additional four feet this building currently was used for storage and now is going to be used as a production design studio where they’re going to be filming some network TV and the current height of the ceiling that’s not allowed for the sound equipment and boom and lighting to be used in accordance for how they’re going to need to use it the last example would be a current house that has only eight foot ceilings and the homeowner is now designed to have nine foot ceilings a new homeowner or old Homer or whoever we can lift the second story and be able to create 9-foot ceilings as desired for that homeowner for that first floor there’s a few different things that have come up recently thought would be good to present as different ways that house listing and building moving can be used at the context.

House lifting

House lifting is the process of separating a building from its foundation and temporarily lifting it with hydraulic screw jacks. The process is the first step in structure relocation in which the building is moved to a different location.

House raising

House raising allows you to increase livable space without having to move.House raising can be a less invasive construction process and cost less (than new construction) because you are not disrupting what exists on upper floors.

Foundation Repair

Foundation Repair and cracking can present significant structural problems for your home along with a reduction in the home’s value. Repairing the foundation of a home is time sensitive—if not repaired quickly, it can lead to additional problems that are unrepairable, and the structure will be unsafe to live in.


Underpinning is the process of strengthening the foundation of an existing building or other structure. Underpinning may be necessary for a variety of reasons: The original foundation isn’t strong or stable enough. The usage of the structure has changed.

House Leveling

House leveling is a term used to describe the process of lifting a home as close to its original state as possible. Leveling a house is usually accomplished by performing foundation repair. A home that is sinking at one end or multiple places likely has a structural problem.

Equipment & Storage.

Heavy Equipment & Storage space is a must-have for your super heavy and awkwardly sized equipment, parts, tools, and machinery. WA conveniently store heavy equipment and bulk items from floor to ceiling.

Pyrrhotite Problems

If pyrite or pyrrhotite are present in the rocks underneath buildings, the swelling can push on the foundation, walls, and basement floor of the building, causing cracks and other structural damage. In some cases, groundwater can then transport sulfates into the cracked foundation, causing further damage.

Crumbling Foundations

Presence of pyrrhotite in the concrete combined with moisture and oxygen. Critical element is moisture and the interaction of pyrrhotite with moisture and oxygen. Homes with small amounts of pyrrhotite (less than 0.3%) still can experience crumbling foundations.
