House Lifting & Raising in Apopka
Feel like you’re constantly banging your head because your crawl space or basement is too low? If you would like to have more space but don’t want the backyard taken up with an extension, we have a raising solution. Bored of paying hefty insurance fees on your floor? You don’t have to move. Just move up!
Do you Want More Space?
A better option you might consider if you are thinking of extending your home is to build a second floor and raise your house. Raising your home can enable you to build a full basement from an existing crawl space, or increase the height of your basement ceiling. The methods above and others could help you double the square footage of your home at the lowest cost. Finished basements and first floors can cost 60 – 70 percent less than adding the same square footage in other ways. A second great reason to raise your house rather than add an extension is to keep your backyard. In the city, you don’t have much outdoor space due to the size of typical residential lots. Raising your home preserves your existing outdoor space.
Smarter Than Moving
Our experience indicates that every $1.00 spent on raising and improving your house will increase its value by $1.50. Moreover, you can avoid all the costs associated with selling and buying a larger home (for example, real estate fees, land transfer tax, legal fees, and moving costs).
Your home should fit your lifestyle even though you like your existing house and your neighborhood. Perhaps your family is expanding or you would like to create a space that your family can enjoy for years to come. Another option might be to hire a room to rent out. If you need money for renovations, renting a room could help you.
People live near water in many places–freshwater zones that are prone to flooding, wetlands, or low-bank properties along sound and ocean shorelines. The house may need to be moved back from the high-water zones or raised in many of those cases. If your house has suffered flooding, we can help you with a lift so that you will not be affected by further flooding, or if you are taking preventative measures so that you will not be affected by flooding down the road. Climate change impacts such as the sea-level rise and increased flooding can also be mitigated through house lifting.
