House Raising in Brisbane
House raising is an excellent solution for Brisbane homeowners who wish to add extra living space to their property. This unique renovation process involves lifting and raising your current house, allowing for construction underneath the existing structure. Not only does house raising add extra square meterage to your home, but it also has the potential to significantly increase your property's value.
To start the house raising process, our team strategically places steel supports under your house. This is a critical step to ensure the structure's stability during the lift.
Next, our team clears the site and performs profiling to prepare for the excavation and construction process.
During the dig out phase, we prepare the ground underneath the raised house for the new construction, ensuring the area is safe and ready.
We then drill holes for the new foundation where the concrete will be poured to support the lifted structure.
In this crucial step, concrete is carefully poured into the holes to establish a strong and robust foundation for the additional weight.
Once the concrete has set and the foundation is firm, beams are lowered and expertly welded into place to ensure the stability of the raised house.
When it comes to house raising, it's only natural to have questions. Here are some common queries about the process:
How long will you be out of the house for?
The timeline depends on the complexity of the project. Generally, homeowners can expect to be out of the house for the duration of the construction phase.
Can you leave furniture in the house when raising?
Yes, you can leave furniture in the house when raising. Our team takes great care to ensure the safety of your belongings during the process.
Do you need approval to raise a house in Brisbane?

Can you slide or reposition the house on the block?
