New Zealand’s leaders in floor levelling
House Lifters is the only New Zealand company providing a complete residential floor levelling service. Our extremely accurate floor level results are due to our expertise, unique levelling equipment and engineered designs. No site is too challenging; our levelling work in New Zealand has included hill sites, TC3 sections and coastal properties for flood management/flood protection.
Our house levelling services can include:
- Ring foundations
- Jack and pack piles
- Slab on grade
- Slab on tailings
- Screw piling levelling
Unique levelling equipment
House Lifters’ Modular Synchronised Positioning System was custom-designed by engineers for even the most complex relevelling projects, including sites where access would normally be very difficult. We commissioned a team of engineers in the Netherlands to design and build a computer-controlled lifting and levelling system. Our unique system is lighter, more mobile, faster and easier to set up than conventional methods, and cranes and forklifts are not required. House Lifters does not use Bottle Jacks as they point load foundations, are inaccurate and very slow to work with. The system software allows us to:
- Set exact parameters to execute complex lifts
- Provide uniform lifting and levelling pressure in all jacks
- Spread loads evenly around the full system
Building inspections & floor level surveys
House Lifters also offers a full building inspection service – particularly important for ‘As Is Where Is’ properties. The Building Inspection Report can also include a ZIPLEVEL® Survey and Analysis, with floor plan. Unlike rotary lasers, ZIPLEVEL® altimeters are a very quick and extremely precise way to measure and read elevations, over any distance or elevation.

Heritage Home Re-level and Re-pile
Grey Lynn, Auckland
Client Problem: This beautiful,old villa is over 100 years old so the floors were out of level, due to settlement over time. Our client was looking to restore the house so they wanted the floors to be how they were originally built.
House Lifters Solution: House Lifters re-levelled the house first and checked that the client was happy. Then new, standard, timber piles were installed for a strong foundation so that the restoration could proceed.
