Note: New Jersey law requires that house lifting contractors meet certain criteria for insurance coverage, equipment, and experience. The law states that house lifting companies must receive a registration number from the state to be able to engage in any structural elevations.

What our customers have to say about our house lifting service

“Wolfe’s crew showed up at 10:00 a.m. from Pennsylvania and the lift was done by 5:00 p.m. same day! The job was as near perfect as anyone could possibly expect. … Hire these guys. If you do, getting the house up and down will be the most carefree part of the job.”
— David Austin, homeowner, New Jersey

“The crew under your employ consisted of four men, and I only know their first names: Nevin, Tim, Ted, and Ben. Their mission was to raise my home six feet. I can’t begin to tell you how impressed I was with the teamwork and professionalism I saw displayed that day.”
— F.E. Gembicki, homeowner, New Jersey
