How to Move a Brick House?

If you’ve found a house that you love for removal, and it’s brick, then you may be wondering how brick homes are relocated?

Of course, brick houses are much heavier than their wooden equivalents. Despite this, they are still able to be moved, it’s just done slightly differently.

When you purchase a brick house, you will be purchasing the house, as well as the framing. When the house moving team arrives at the site, they will start by removing the bricks.

With Uplifting Homes, we first remove and discard the bricks, taking the bricks away so that we can transport the house and exterior framing only to the purchased site.

This ensures a safer and more secure transition to the new destination. Once the house arrives on its new site, it will be ready for you to reclad and update to your style.

Although recladding a house that was previously brick may appear more time-consuming at first, there are numerous advantages to doing so.

Recladding will undoubtedly transform and modernise the appearance of your home, improving its street appeal and giving it a great first impression. There are many different types of cladding you can choose from to suit your preferences, style, and budget.

Whilst there are a few extra steps when purchasing a brick home for relocation, the many great opportunities to improve the home’s livability, structure, and aesthetics outweigh the extra effort, and you will reap the benefits in the long term.

Recladding provides an opportunity to strengthen, insulate, rewire, and improve its look, making it essentially a brand-new home.
