Your House Lifting and Raising questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does cost to lift a house?

The cost to raise a house ranges from $10,000 to $40,000 just to elevate the structure. The cost to lift a house and replace the existing foundation costs $20,000 to $100,000. Raising the home and installing a new basement foundation costs about $150,000.

The cost to jack up a house depends on the home size, weight, age, and number of stories. Other factors influence the lifting cost including the foundation type, the height you lift, and the obstacles blocking access to the home's foundation.

How long does it take to raise a house?

Raising a house can take 4 to 8 weeks on average, depending on the preparation required to remove obstacles, the permits required in your area, the type of foundation, and the height the home is being lifted.

Once the initial preparations steps are complete, the actual house lifting takes 2 to 7 days. Delays can occur because of needed repairs, weather conditions, and inspections necessary.

Will house lifting damage my house?

No, if you hire an experienced house lifting & raising contractor, the process should not cause any major damage. Some lifting techniques require drilling holes to attach bracing, but these are easily repairable. In rare cases, cracks in drywall and tiles can occur.

Can I live in the house while it’s being lifted?

Living in a house while it is being lifted is not recommended. The process can be dangerous and there is a risk of injury or death if something goes wrong. Also, once the house is lifted it is unstable and unsafe to live in until the new foundation is in place.

However, you do not need to completely move out of the house, The slow raising process is safe enough to leave your furnishings in place.

Who lifts houses?

House raising or lifting contractors specialize in lifting homes, but usually don't make the necessary foundation repairs. Also, you will need to hire a general contractor to manage the entire project, including surveying the property, engineering for safety, pulling the necessary permits, disconnecting utilities, excavation, and replacing the foundation.

How do I choose a house lifting & raising contractor?

Find a house lifting & raising contractor near you by following these suggestions:

  • Get at least 3 formal bids to compare costs.
  • Confirm the company's experience lifting your type of foundation.
  • Make sure they are licensed, bonded, and insured, with 5 years of house lifting experience.
  • Look for contractors with the best reviews on HomeGuide and Google.
  • Ask for references from past clients to get their opinion on the quality of the workmanship.
  • Confirm that the estimate includes labor, materials, and cleanup after completion.
  • Ask for a written contract that includes the costs, timeline, and any warranty details.
  • Always negotiate a payment plan with the final payment due when the job is finished.

What should I ask a house raising contractor?

Raising a foundation is a serious job and requires an experienced contractor to ensure your home is safely lifted. Ask these important questions when selecting a contractor:

  • Are you licensed, bonded, insured, and experienced in lifting homes?
  • How long have you been raising foundations?
  • What experience do you have with lifting my foundation type?
  • Does your estimate include the equipment, labor, and cleanup?
  • How long will the house lifting take?
  • Will we be able to stay in our home while it is being lifted?
  • Do you have past customers I can contact for a reference?
  • Can you provide a written estimate, contract, and timeline for the repairs?
  • What happens if the home is damaged during the lifting process?

Reviews for Houston house lifting companies

Recent success stories from people in the Houston area.
Dan L.
We had four estimators come out All Foundation construction in my opinion was the most knowledgeable. They did our job three weeks later it took them three days to do it. They said it would be four they got it done today early they cleaned up very well. They did a foundation repair in French drains in the backyard and we have not had a problem with either one of them, so yes I would recommend all Foundation construction.
