Look Before You Leap: Considerations For House Raising

Many residents in Brisbane are looking at having their homes raised for a variety of reasons. Recent floods over the last few years have caused a need to make sure their homes are above flood level in prone areas. Any future floods that may occur will no longer be a problem and selling a home that is raised in a flood area will be much easier.

Renovations and extensions are another motivation behind getting a house raised. This allows for enclosing and for extra rooms or family space to be added underneath the house or a larger covered outdoor area. The value of the home is then increased and larger or growing families have the space they need to spend time together or apart.

Before you go ahead with house raising, here are a few pieces of advice that could save you some heartache and money.
