As professional home elevation contractors, we raise houses carefully and delicately so your family and property are safe during flooding and other extreme weather events in New Orleans and across Louisiana.

Precise Home Elevation in Louisiana

RWC is not just well-versed in Base Flood Elevations (BFE) in various zones but also understands the land and soil conditions in Southern Louisiana, New Orleans, and around the Mississippi River. As such, you’ll be working with highly trained, highly knowledgeable contractors.

Our New Orleans contractors will plan your home elevation project extensively and remain transparent with pricing. Moreover, we employ advanced equipment and a systematic process to ensure precise, on-time work.

Once your home has been raised, you no longer have to worry about flood damage or the safety of your family during torrential rains. You may also see a significant decrease in your flood insurance premiums.

The Elevation Process

  1. Assess the Foundation – Our inspection team will assess your property’s foundation. You’ll receive a detailed report that outlines the necessary modifications to the foundation, including repairs and replacements.
  2. Plan the Project – Our team will work closely with you to plan how to raise and level your New Orleans home.
  • We’ll explain your elevation choices (slab elevation, slab separation, etc.).
    We’ll also plan what to do with the new space. For example, you can build a drive-under garage or a basement.
  • We’ll discuss the costs and help you plan your budget. Our team also helps you with the paperwork involved in elevation funding.
  1. Lift Using Hydraulic Jacks – The project begins. Using a computerized hydraulic jack system, we carefully raise your home without damaging the interiors and exteriors. Our plumbing and electrical teams make sure that the water and electricity supply remains intact. 
  2. Complete the Elevation – Once your house is raised on the planned elevation, our team constructs and completes the space beneath it.
