    Homes on basements, crawlspaces, piers, etc. are for the most part, pretty straightforward to raise them, especially stick built homes.

    But what about an existing slab on grade, slab on grade with masonry exterior walls?

    Better yet, what about a slab on grade with concrete pilings, and monolithic poured grade beams?
