Generally the entire process of moving or raising the home and building the new foundation is completed in one or two weeks. Weather conditions, our schedule and the masonry contractor’s schedule must be taken into consideration however.

  • Board of Adjustment:  The city of San Antonio requires an application for a hearing to move into the city.  A notice is sent to land owners within 200 feet of your site.  A hearing is held to determine if the house will be allowed to move into the city.
  • Plan Checking:  Two copies of the site plan, foundation detail showing the pier placement, pier size and floor joist size and spacing.
  • Foundation Permit:  When plan checking approves the plans a foundation permit is secured.  The pier holes must be inspected prior to the placement of concrete into the holes.
  • Moving Permit:  The traffic division reviews the proposed route and approves.  This approval and a relocation bond guaranteeing the house will be repaired to the city code within 90 days must be submitted to secure the permit.
  • Plumbing Permit:  A licensed plumber must secure the permit and install the plumbing to meet city code.
  • Electrical Permit:  A licensed electrician must secure a permit and install the electrical to meet city code.
  • Repair Permit:  This permit is to be purchased by the homeowner and covers repairs.  The homeowner can do the repairs themselves.
