House Lifting & Raising in Largo
In case your house is situated at a point where water collides with your foundation and damages it, you should fix the sloping problem. Compared to grading a yard, raising a house won’t allow the house to be eroded or damaged by water. Our company, Foundation Repair Largo, uses several excellent specialized foundation systems and established elevation techniques to raise homes in a safe and cost-effective way. If this process is effective, it will depend on the flood map that was revised, or on the local ordinance. We offer helical systems like Sandy Brackets to homeowners who want to raise their homes.
Our Proven Lifting & Raising Solutions
With Foundation Repair of Largo’s lifting method, homes are never disconnected from their foundations or moved off of their footprint. You’ll find that this is much less invasive than traditional lifting. Consequently, it is safer than traditional lifting.
Some of the other benefits of our method are:
- A homeowner or tenant does not have to vacate their home weeks before moving out or weeks after moving out. When utilities and local officials work together, homeowners have to leave for a few weeks instead of months.
- “Sustainable Solution” means recycling existing timber resources after harvest to a higher standard, rather than producing new ones.
- Helical brackets from Sandy Bracket provide secure foundations for grade beams connected to them. This is why concrete-based wind-proof houses are far more windproof than lumber-framed homes.
The majority of suburbs near water are either freshwater zones, wetlands, or properties on a low plateau or along the shore. Most of the time, the house must be elevated or moved away from areas of high water. We can provide you with assistance if you’ve been flooded or if you’d like to prevent another flood from occurring. House lifting is also a way to reduce other impacts of climate change, like sea level rise and flooding.
