Why House Lifting Can Be a Better Option?

Structural lifting is a major undertaking and an important investment in your property. Built-Rite Structural Services Ltd. ensures that your property is treated with utmost care and gets a successful lift-off the first time!

  • Create more space
    Adding an extension is not always viable due to reasons related to high cost, limited space, or personal preference for keeping the outdoor space intact. Instead of extending your property or moving out, consider moving up. Raising your house can allow you to add a new floor, create a taller or deeper basement by raising the floor-to-ceiling height, or even add a full new basement. 

  • Prevent water damage
    Many old homes are established at a critically low point where water accumulates and causes foundation damage. A structural lift is a perfect way to mitigate flood risk and even recover flooded properties. This mitigation technique also safeguards your property against the future increase in sea level and the risk of a flood disaster.

  • Perform structural repairs and renovations
    House raising is an integral step in performing foundation and structural work. We can collaborate with your general or renovation contractors to hold the building at an elevated level so that your contractors can:

  • Remove and replace the foundation from underneath

  • Replace rotten posts, beams, walls, and other structural components

  • Resolve settlement and levelling problems

  • Address drainage issues
