Texas House Lifting and Elevation | Texas House Moving

Raising a house in Houston, Texas has never been easier.

Since Hurricane Harvey, several elevation companies raised their cost to lift a house. The cost to raise a house and replace the foundation elevation by 3 to 4 feet averages $14,000 to $24,00 to avoid future flooding, and is mandatory for certain areas. Houses in Houston and Meyerland below the flood plain suffered massive flooding. FEMA grants helped those who filed early, but many were taken advantage of by elevation companies. Even after the flood, house levelling contractors are needed for slab elevation service to level their home because of soil movement under the slab foundation.

After Hurricane Sandy, Katrina, Ike, and Harvey we were there helping people just like you to prevent future catastrophe. In the Great Flood of the Midwest in 1993 we relocated entire towns; it was the first federal funded relocation of entire town in Rhineland, Missouri. We have lifted and relocated over 15,000 structures from 1954-2018 (64yrs) averaging 254 moves/yr. Most every other company that advertises moving houses or buildings are hiring from the Matyiko family or subcontracting our services. You’re also not dealing with salesman looking for commissions. Why pay more for the middle-man when you can go directly to us? If you aren’t sure, you are encouraged to get other estimates and ask for proof of what they have done on their own.
