Raise a Home with Du-West

Being in the foundation industry for quite some time, I’ve come across many ways that you can fix a foundation problem. There are minor cases where people try to fix it themselves which we don’t recommend due to safety hazards, and in the case that the job was done wrong, the repair to reverse it is very expensive. Then there are the major cases where the homes have to be lifted from the ground by using jacks. The Du-West processes range from the patented Ultra-Pile system to the system of jacks in which we lift the home completely off the ground. Most foundation companies do not know how to raise a home in the air to get it out of flood waters. Moreover, Du-West was the first to specialize in lifting a home, and even now, there are few companies that can do this. We do what ever it takes to get it done the right way.

Reasons why a homeowner would need to be raised are to keep it from flooding. If your flood damage is more than 50 percent of the value of your home, you must raise it to the current elevation standards in order to get permits to rebuild. Another factor to keep in mind is that your flood insurance may no longer pay for flood damages time after time. After a couple of floods, your insurance company may drop you or help you pay for the raising.

Above is a house that Du-West fixed 20 years ago. This home would flood at the sight of gray skies. In the severe cases, water would reach over the counter tops. At the time, the value of the home was approximately $85,000 due to the constant flooding in the home. Once the home was raised, the value increased to $300,000. In many cases, the value of the home will raise to what its actual value is and not the lower flood value.Du-West physically raised this home 9 feet off the ground and has since then helped many homeowners facing flood problems.
