House Lifting & Raising in Sarasota
Do you have a crawl space or basement that is too low? You seem to be banging your head constantly on the floor, don’t you? If you don’t want to use your backyard, but would like more space, a backyard extension is not appropriate. Experiencing insurance fees for your flooring? Let us help.
You want more space
Rather than extending your home, you may want to consider building a second floor. With a raised home, you can convert an existing crawl space into a full basement or raise the basement ceiling. These methods, as well as others, can help you double the square footage of your home at the lowest cost. Adding space in another way is usually 60 – 70 percent more expensive than finishing a basement or first floor. You can keep your backyard if you raise your house rather than add an extension. As a result of the size of residential lots in most cities, city lots are not large enough to provide much outdoor space. You can preserve outdoor space by increasing your house.
Smarter than moving
No matter how much you like your current home and neighborhood, your new home must fit your lifestyle. Create a space that can accommodate your growing family or create a space that you and your family can enjoy for generations to come. Additionally, it is possible to rent a room to others. If you need money for renovations, you can use the rental money.
Water is present in many places, such as freshwater zones prone to flooding, wetlands, and low-bank properties along the shores of the sound and ocean. Many of those situations may require moving or raising the house out of flood zones. If your house has been flooded, or if you are planning to prevent flooding in the future, we can assist you with a lift. As a result of climate change, increasing flood levels and sea level rise can also be mitigated with a house lift.
