Steps Before You Can Raise Your House


To go ahead with a house raise or even get an exact quote there are a few steps that you need to complete beforehand.

Step 01.

Plans & Engineering
___

The first step to getting your house raised is to get house plans and engineering. During this phase, you will work with a Building Designer to design the space you require under the house and any proposed changes that you’d like to make above.

Step 02.

Development Approval
___

This is only required in some instances. The design company will help you with this if need be and will provide the relevant town planning advice if it’s required for your project.

Step 03.

Building Approval
___

During this step, you can begin collecting accurate quotes for constructions. You’ll engage a private certifier to work with you and assess the application on behalf of the Council.

Step 04.

Appoint A House Raiser
___

This is the last step before the physical work is carried out. Once you appoint a house raiser or a builder and sign a contract with them, they will pay the QBCC Home Warranty Insurance.

Step 05.

Alternate Accommodation
___

It’s a good idea to have suitable accommodation organised during the house raising and construction period which on average is 6 weeks.

The Raise my House team were great to deal with from quote through to job finished. Responsive quoting process and easy to deal with in the back office. Onsite, Beau and the team did a great job restumping my house. Friendly, responsive and great to work with.

Have used these guys on 4 projects over the last 10 years. They've gotten better and better with their systems and installations. As a builder its really important to be able to rely on the team and I know I can do that. Keep up the good work guys.

We had 3 house stumps replaced from our garage in our old Queenslander. Very happy with the quality of work completed. Cheers to Scott for initially helping and thanks very much to Beau and his team, very professional and friendly guys!

When another company fell through, I urgently needed two stumps replaced prior to other pre-booked trades commencing other work within my property. Raise My House to the rescue! These guys went above and beyond to fit my job in, with less than a weeks notice, which is seemingly unheard of! Super good communication from the guys, the guys on site were lovely and I'm so pleased with the work they did. Thanks a million, guys!

Raise My House did a fantastic job replacing my rusty metal stumps set in deep concrete blocks with some very low and awkward areas to work in. They were friendly and communicative and it was altogether a very positive experience. I would highly recommend them.
