House Movers | House Moving
We are an Oregon house moving company. Serving Oregon, and Washington. Structural moving is the process of moving a structure from one location to another. There are two main ways for a structure to be moved: disassembling and then reassembling it at the required destination, or transporting it whole. For the latter, the building is first raised and then may be pushed on temporary rails or dollies if the distance is short. Otherwise, wheels, such as flatbed trucks, are used. These moves can be complicated and require the removal of protruding parts of the building, such as the chimney, as well as obstacles along the journey, such as overhead cables and trees.
House Moving | Building Relocation
House moving and building movers require picking the house up from its foundation and setting it down in another spot, sometimes miles away. These moves can be complicated and require the house movers to remove protruding parts of the building, such as the chimney, as well as obstacles along the journey, such as overhead cables and trees. Reasons for building relocation range from commercial reasons such as scenery, to preserving an important or historic building. Moves may also be made simply at the whim of the owner, or to separate a building from the plot of land that it stands on.There are several reasons why You would need a top notch structural moving company. For example, a redevelopment, such as urban regeneration, could cause a relocation. Additionally, it has been purchased and the buyer wishes to move it, for reasons such as the scenery from the building. The owner might also sell the land that the building is on, but keep the building. Another reason for the relocation of a building is to preserve it for historic interest. Such a move could be made because a building is in danger at its present location.
House Lifting | House Raising
House raising (house lifting, house jacking, barn jacking, building jacking) is the process of separating a building from its foundation and temporarily raising it with hydraulic screw jacks. The process is the first step in structure relocation in which the building is moved to a different location.
House lifting may also be a part of a renovation to build a foundation under an existing house or make a house larger by building a new floor level creating a two story house. Often employed in areas that are prone to flooding and storm damage, this process can be achieved through the use of either timber piles or helical piles. Once a house is raised and supported on cribbing, a new foundation can be constructed beneath it. After Hurricane Katrina and Hurricane Sandy large numbers of houses in parts of Louisiana, New York and New Jersey were raised to avoid future flooding.
Historical Building Moving
If an historical building is in danger of being demolished for a parking lot or the latest condominium development, we can help save it by moving it to another location.
