House and Structure Raising Houston

Du-West Has Been Raising Houston Houses Since 1989

If you are thinking that raising a home up in the air and off its foundation sounds crazy and complicated, you aren’t wrong! The act of raising a structure requires a specialist with extensive experience, planning, and knowledge to ensure the safety of your home. Du-West has spent over 30 years working with homeowners throughout Texas to plan, elevate, and secure their structures. We offer free in-home Elevation Consultations to start the process of determining if your house is structurally sound and a good candidate for elevating and walking you through the process so that you can make an informed decision. Du-West currently provides consultations for slab, block and base, and pier and beam homes. Call (713) 473-7156 today or reach out to one of our local offices to learn more.
