Chimney Settlement Case Studies
There’s nothing more relaxing than a warm fire on a cold winter day.
The warmth emanating through the room, the soft crackle of the wood, and
the shadows dancing on the walls - they all add up to a wonderful winter
Situation: The chimney beside the Columbia, South Carolina home had settled, separating
the top of the chimney as much as 8 in. from the exterior wall. The chimney
appeared to be leaning away from the home, and the homeowners contacted
Ram Jack South Carolina to evaluate the structure.
Proposed Solution: After a thorough inspection, Ram Jack South Carolina professionals recommended
installing two helical piles at the corners of the chimney. The piles
would lift the chimney back to its original position while providing the
stability needed to prevent further settlement.
Outcome: In just one day, Ram Jack South Carolina installed (2) 2 7⁄8”
helical piles. These piles lifted the chimney so it was once again flush
with the home’s exterior wall, closing the 8 in. gap, and eliminating
almost all cosmetic defects. The job went smoothly, and the homeowners
were completely satisfied with the service provided and finished result.
