What is a House Lift?

House raising, also referred to as ‘house lifting’ or ‘house jacking’, basically elevates your house to help prevent (or reduce) flood damage. One of the main advantages of raising homes in flood zone areas is that it can help protect your investment and greatly reduce insurance costs.
