Lifting roof structures on buildings with a low roof can transform them into modern, high-clearance structures for warehouses, storage, manufacturing, or distribution facilities.
Bygging-Uddemann uses hydraulically-powered roof-raising jacks to lift the roof, allowing for the installation of additional beams, walls, and other structural elements to the building. Contact us for more details about our roof-raising services.

At Bygging-Uddemann we take great pride in our ability to perform roof lifts using our own specially manufactured units designed and constructed by our heavy lifting experts. Our hydraulic rod climbers can be extended to nearly any reasonable height. A traditional roof-raising process using hydraulic jacks looks as follows:
