Do I need to hire a contractor?
That depends on the project. Most of the prep work and finish work can be done by the home owner. However, once the house is installed on the new foundations, you will need to hire professional electricians and plumbers for the service connections. In some case, lifting the building is part of a larger renovation project and additions to the main house are often built at the same time. Customers also take advantage of a new basement by adding in new rooms. In these cases, it is a good idea to hire a general contractor to complete the work.
