Since the 80’s, Houston residents have trusted Allied Foundation to take care of their foundation problems as well as provide preventative measures to preserve the structural integrity of their homes. As all Houstonians know, this area is prone to flooding, and that is why house lifting is a necessary service in our area.
Our accurate assessments and reasonable quotes helped many homeowners elevate their homes through one of FEMA’s grant programs that Allied Foundation is actively apart of nowadays.
Currently, we provide grant home elevation services for Brazoria County, Galveston County, as well as in the city limits of Houston.
To prevent their properties from potential flood damage, many homeowners decide to have their homes lifted out of harm’s way. The average process of a one-story home to be lifted is a minimum of 2 to 4 feet that can be completed between 45 to 75 days.
The house is lifted in one piece by using the Unified Hydraulic Jacking Machine Method. By utilizing this method, the structure’s risks of damage are minimal. During the actual lifting of the home, the residents are not permitted to be in the home for safety reasons. It is recommended for residents to reside outside of the home while the lift is being performed, but once the elevation is completed the residents may stay inside throughout the remaining time of the project. The contents in the interior of the home are not disturbed, and there is no need for belongings as well as furnishings to be removed for the lifting of the home.
