If house elevation sounds like a big deal…well, you’re right! Lifting a house take very specific equipment and expertise that most contractors don’t have, and that’s why you want to work with one that has experience across the country. TurnKey Contractor has helped to lift houses in the most hurricane-prone parts of the country, saving houses from flooding in Louisiana, Long Island, and now in Texas.

But with house elevation being such a big deal, is it worth the effort? Absolutely. After all, you’re protecting your house, that place you’ve turned into a home over the years by creating so many memories.

The Practical Side of House Elevation

Even if you’re not attached to your home, you still want to protect it from flooding. Even if you have flood insurance, you really can’t take the risk of the insurance company finding some reason to deny payment. Not only that, but you’ll also be losing so much more to the floodwaters: paperwork, appliances, furniture, and possessions you might be emotionally attached to that might not be replaceable. Having house raising performed also makes it infinitely easier to leave your home when a mandatory evacuation occurs, because you’ll be leaving knowing that there’s a good chance your house will be the best-looking one in the neighborhood when you return.

Of course, you can’t ignore the safety that also comes with having a raised home. If you’re caught in the middle of a flash flood or can’t evacuate for some reason, investing in house lifting could actually save your life or those of loved ones. That alone should convince you to at least investigate the benefits of house lifting and if you might be eligible for government grants.
