House Lifting

House Lifting, also known as house raising, house jacking or building jacking is a highly skill involved process of temporarily lifting a building from its foundation using hydraulic screw jacks. This challenging process is needed for relocating the entire building, as it is, to another location and also for renovating the foundation. The later is the most prevailing application of house lifting in Kerala.
When a second storey is needed on an existing building, chances are that the foundation is not strong enough to withstand the additional load. In some other cases, the foundation may be found to be weak after a few years of construction, whereas the rest of the building is still intact. In such scenarios, the building may be temporarily lifted and a new, stronger foundation may be erected, without disturbing the entire construction.
This is a tricky situation where house lifting comes into play, which is a very convenient and cost saving procedure. However, it is a course of action that requires thorough knowledge of structural architecture.
Once the house is thus lifted, a new foundation may be easily constructed beneath it. Even building an entire storey below the existing house is possible with the help of house lifting.

How House Lifting Works?

House raising is a hefty undertaking that needs careful planning and execution with safety at its core. The procedure involves the use of hydraulic jacks and long, steel I-beams.
First, the condition of the foundation is carefully evaluated and the area is cleared. Once this is done, steel I-beams are slid under the ground floor of the building, supported by hydraulic jacks on either side. Strong pieces of timber are cross-stacked beneath the raised floor.
Typically, the lifting is done at six to ten inches at a time. After each lift, one set of timber is cross-stacked and this process is repeated until the desired height is achieved. Electrical connections, water lines and any such utility connections are disconnected before commencing the house lifting process.
Once the building is lifted as described above, the hydraulic jacks are gradually released, allowing the building to rest on the cross-stacked timbers. Ample time is given to the building to rest firmly on the timber stack, before removing the I-beams and jacks. All the necessary precautions are taken during the process to ensure the safety of the building and workers. Intensive planning and coordination are needed for the successful execution of house raising.
