You can lift it, but the effort required to lift it without damaging it will likely be more expensive than removing it and replacing it. And you'll need many piers because it won't be supported on grade any longer

I'm disappointed with the response. I already got this information on line. Was looking for alternatives. This was not worth $18. Live and learn!

All I can do is answer the question you ask. If you have additional questions you need to ask them. I will opt out. Good luck with your project.
