Hurricanes can be a nerve-wracking time. It’s bad enough that the winds tear off gutters and knock out electricity to entire cities, but the floodwaters they bring can completely destroy homes. And as hurricanes get more and more powerful, the floodwaters are going to keep getting closer and closer, even to homes that are in higher parts town.

If you’re tired of flinching every time a hurricane stops by Long Island because you’re not sure your house will stay above water, house raising might be exactly what you need. It protects your home, your possessions, and you family. TurnKey Contractor Solutions can help.

The average house weighs around 500,000 pounds, but when you have the hydraulic jacks that TurnKey has it’s not a problem. We’ll place long metal beams under your house, extend the utilities, raise the whole thing up in the air, and lower it back down on a new, secure foundation that can hold up to floodwater. Your main floor will now be considerably higher in the air, ensuring that the next flood won’t be lapping at your ankles.

It’s a big job, but we’ve performed it for many homes across Long Island. In fact, this page has some examples of how hard it is to tell that the house has been lifted at all. We’d love to talk with you about your Massapequa home, and we’d be happy to give you a free quote regarding how much house lifting might cost. Even better, we can give you an idea of how much house lifting will save you in flood insurance and repairs. We might even be able to help you find government grants to help offset the cost.
