A few reasons for raising or relocating a structure.
Relocating or installing a new foundation under a home of historic value to preserve it.
A failing or non-existing foundation or basement.
Relocating or repositioning a structure on it’s lot to maximize the usability of the area.
Located in a flood zone, elevating a structure a few feet can eliminate any problems associated with that.
A few things to consider:
When relocating a structure, will it fit from point A to point B?
Consider both the width and the height of the structure
(i.e. trees, telephone poles, wires etc…)
When a flood zone is involved you will need to know elevations and have a foundation plan. Local engineers will be able to
assist with this.
We have all the excavation/demolition equipment to handle removal of old foundations, and the prep work for new foundations.
