In reply to Raising my house several inches. by Mike on March 28th, 2000 10:25 PM [Go to top of thread]

It would be less expensive to move, I think. Raising a home involves hiring a lifting company to come out, insert steel beams through your foundation, jacking up the house on timbers, then redoing the foundation. This whole process runs about $100,000 by the time you are finally finished with utilities, any abatement issues, and anything you end up doing IN the new foundation, not to mention damage to the house itself done by the lifting process.
