Let us elevate your home

Roubion Shoring & Construction has been raising houses in New Orleans and South Louisiana for generations long.

Roubion Shoring uses a fully computerized jacking system to elevate both slab and pier houses. Your home is elevated in a level position, just like an elevator.

See our Photo Galleries for examples of our projects:

The Sky Is The Limit

You can raise your house just a few inches or add a full new story to your home. Elevating your house over 8 feet gives you the option to a new basement, or even a drive-under garage. We use a special steel beam construction to carry the weight and create enough space for your vehicle.
See our Drive-under Garage page for more information.

Slab Houses

We have different options for raising your slab house. If your house is gutted we can use the “slab separation” technique. Hereby the house is separated from the slab. The new foundation is built on top of the old slab.

We also can pick up the house with slab and all raise everything together. This is called “slab elevation“.

We raise all types of houses, as high as needed

We can raise your house just a few feet, or high enough to create a drive-under garage or basement under your home.

No project is too small or too large for us. Browse through our Before&After pictures and our Project Gallery to see what type of houses we have elevated.
