We are Brisbane & Ipswich’s Trusted House Raising Company since 2010.
With the largest raise team in QLD, we proudly raise between 150 – 180 houses each year.
As professional house raisers and restumpers, we provide a full range of raise services and we partner with Brisbane and Ipswich home owners and builders who are looking to raise a house for a variety of reasons, which often include:
- To provide more liveable spaces for their family
- Car or boat accommodation
- A space to care for the elderly on the ground floor
- Student accommodation
- Improving panoramic views
- Rise above flood levels (learn more about the Resilience Program here).
- As an investment decision
You can view our house raise process video below to learn more about our trusted and proven process for professional house raising across Brisbane metro and Ipswich areas.
There are many reasons why people choose to have their home raised by us. Some people like to create additional living space for their family, while others are seeking more parking space or to simply improve the view from their home.
Some Brisbane & Ipswich homeowners choose to care for their elderly relatives, and in order to do so need a special space to care for them which can only be created if their home is raised.
Renting rooms for students or travellers is a nice way to gain some additional income. Raising your home can create more space for additional rooms that you can lease out, and it will also raise the overall value of your home – as well as giving it the traditional Queenslander style!

Why Should You Choose Raise My House?
Aside from the fact that we now have over 13 years of local experience, we also offer our builder and homeowner clients the following:
Accurate quotes designed to save you time and money on steel and labour.
We never offer a one size fits all quote, in fact our quotes are highly detailed and prepared over a number of days or weeks to ensure accuracy. We get a lot of feedback from builders on how much money we can save their clients by identifying engineering issues early and providing alternative cost effective solutions.
A large team that provides attention to detail.
Unlike most raise companies that run with one or two crews, we have over 5 highly trained specialist teams that work on specific parts of the raise project. They flow from one phase to the next which allows us to provide accurate, nimble and effecient services to save you time. This is why we can often provide you with a project start time within 2-4 weeks, and never make you wait months on-end like our competitors.
Experienced leaders offering great service from quote to completion.
We believe in offering the highest level of service possible, in fact we are often credited with changing the standards in the house raise industry. A lot of our leaders have been with us for 10 years or more, including Alycia taking your call and managing administration, Clayton providing estimating and detailed quotes, Adam and Tom overseeing all of our house raise operations and running our projects, or Scott and Beau providing restumping quotes and services. There is over 60 years of combined raising experience right there! We guarantee you will always be greeted with a welcome smile and honest assessment when you contact Raise My House.

The Home Raising Process
Raise My House® In Brisbane specialises in the first stage of raising your home. We’ll recommend some great draftsmen and an engineer to begin the initial design process, and we’ll explain the approval process and the best people to deal with so you don’t get stuck and stressed with a bunch of paperwork and phone calls.
We’ll then get to work!
We re-stump your home, re-connect your utilities and lay additional foundations and retaining walls if they are needed and we’ll build you a new set of stairs so you can access your re-modelled, raised home.
Raise My House® are pioneers in Brisbane at raising your home the easy and risk-free way using reinforced steel as opposed to noisy and at time, unsafe pumps.

We generally work with owner builders and construction companies. However, if you need our services and lack the appropriate licensing don’t worry – we have all the accreditation needed to construct up to three storeys high.
We work alongside some quality carpenters and tradies that will quote you separately and help to carry out the work on your property.
