Signs & Symptoms - Foundation Solutions
Is Your Home Or Business Suffering From Foundation Failure? We Understand The Problems… We Have The Solutions.
Basement walls are not only part of your subterranean living space, but also the foundation that your above ground home sits upon. When basement walls begin to fail water can start to find its way in more freely and can compromise the rest of the structure. Whether your basement is block or concrete, our patented systems can be configured to fit your need. Ram Jack field consultants are equipped with over three hundred highly engineered products to properly configure several options in the repair of your basement walls. See some of our illustrations to further explain how the system works.
1. Bowed Basement Walls: Soil pressures vary by the season and can cause walls of basements to be pushed in and begin to fail. Failing basement walls can compromise the above ground structure.
2. Recovering bowed walls: In order to recover the bowed basement walls, the soil must be removed in order to relieve pressure. Our helical tiebacks can then be installed into deep soils that will properly resist the force of the walls; the walls can then be pulled back into place.
3. Preventing future problems: After the repair has been made, the hole is backfilled with gravel next to the walls. Gravel does not exert extreme pressures when soaked with water and lessens the force on your walls that are held in place by our helical piling.
4. Stabilization: It is an option to simply stabilize the basement walls by installing helical piling into deep soils, preventing the walls from further damage.
