House Lifting & Raising in Bradenton
Is your basement or crawl space too low, causing you to hit your head constantly? Our solution is for those who would like more space without having their backyards taken over by an extension. Tired of paying high insurance premiums for your floor? There is an alternative you can consider. Upgrade to house lifting and raising!
You Want More Space?
If you are considering extending your house, you might consider building a second floor and raising your home. The process of raising your home may allow you to build a full basement from a crawl space, or to raise your basement ceiling. With the methods mentioned above and others, you can double your square footage at a low cost. Finishing a basement or first floor can save between 60 and 70 percent of the cost of adding the same amount of space in other ways. Keeping your backyard is another great reason to raise your house instead of adding an extension. Due to the size of typical residential lots, you don’t have much outdoor space in the city. You can preserve your outdoor space by raising your house.
Smarter than moving
We’ve found that for every $1 spent on raising and improving your house, the value will increase by $1.50. In addition, you will avoid all the costs associated with selling and buying a larger house (for example, real estate fees, land transfer tax, legal fees, and moving costs).
Even though you like your existing house and neighborhood, your new home should fit your lifestyle. Your family is growing or you would like to create a space that your family can enjoy for many years to come. Renting a room might also be an option for you. Leasing a room may help you to get the money you need for renovations.
Freshwater zones prone to flooding, wetlands, or low-bank properties along sound and ocean shorelines are all areas where people live near water. In several of those cases, it may be necessary to move the house away from the high-water zones or elevate it. When your house has been flooded, we can help you with a lift so that you will not be affected by further flooding, or if you are taking preventative measures to prevent flooding down the road. In addition to reducing sea level rise and increasing flooding caused by climate change, house lifting can help mitigate other impacts.
