Some of the reasons people renovate their home is to upgrade certain aspects of it, create more space, or give themselves a new space to stretch out, especially if they have a growing family. If you are considering renovating your home, it certainly pays to have a good look at your options and choose one that is going to get you the most value for your money. Often people might start by renovating parts of their home, piece by piece, without ever considering the option of raising their house, but it is most definitely an option that produces optimal results.
Create a LOT of Extra Space
When we think about renovating, often this idea might involve knocking a wall out here, and building in a new one over there, or adding an extension onto the house. But what if you could literally double the size of your house by building a whole extra level underneath, utilising space that you have not been able to use before? The underneath of your house could become a place where you add an extra bedroom, a study, an extra bathroom or even a large rumpus room for the growing children to give them more room to be kids.
More Economical Than Renovating in Portions
Choosing to renovate in portions might seem like it is better for the hip pocket in theory, but in the long run it could end up costing you a lot more than you bargained for. Signing up for the large task of raising your house is definitely a big job, but without a doubt, the results will speak for themselves in the complete transformation of your home.

Longevity for your Home
A key component of house raising involves checking the existing foundations and making repairs where necessary. The thing about renovating the top half of your house, without ever considering the bottom half, is that it’s a bit like rearranging chairs on the Titanic. After a considerable amount of time and money, you may end up with a house that looks great to the naked eye, but could be crumbling into the dirt at the foundation level, or being eaten alive. Raising your house and having new stumps and foundations put in where necessary means that not only will you have a fantastic space to enjoy, but also you will be able to enjoy it for years to come.
