Acme House Raising also offers a slab separation option when raising your New Orleans home. This procedure involves separating the walls of the structure from the slab itself.
With a slab separation elevation, the entire house is raised without the slab. Once the walls are at base flood elevation level or higher, a new sub floor is then constructed with treated wood joists and plates. The slab remains in its original location and serves as the foundation for the block piers that will support the newly constructed floor and original walls of the structure.
The typical slab separation allows the homeowner to utilize the existing slab under the raised portion of the house for usable space. Slab separations work best in houses that have exposed wall studs and bottom plates because we are able to separate the walls from the slab without doing unnecessary damage to finished walls.
