Foundation Settlement Repair
Intermountain Foundation Repair, Inc. has chosen to use the superior RAM JACK System for foundation repair and support. Ram Jack’s patented system can drive structural support pile deeper into a competent bearing layer to ensure a more firm support and their patented piles are designed to hold more weight to outlast the competition. Ram Jack incorporates both helical and hydraulically driven steel piles with a proven track record that can individually hold 30,000 to 150,000 lbs. depending on the pile type! The steel pile material has been tested and specifically selected for its unusually high quality to resist bending and buckling. The System causes little disturbance to landscape, the work is completed quickly, and due to the high quality of the materials used, Intermountain Foundation Repair, Inc. is able to provide a lifetime warranty for the hydraulically driven piles and engineered helical piles.
Helical & Pre-Construction piles
The helical pile system is very useful for stabilizing light loaded structural members such as porch columns, wing walls, slabs, and interior floors. Helical piles can also support heavier structures if soil conditions are suitable for higher bearing requirements. The Patented Ram Jack helical pile has a screw together connection which makes it particularly useful for wall tie backs or uplift resistant anchors.
Pre-Construction Helical piles for new construction are good in expansive soils, high water tables, fill areas, and other areas where unstable soils require piles. Use of pre-construction piles can result in significant cost savings when compared to deep over-excavation or cast in place reinforced concrete piles. Our pre-construction piles can be designed for ultimate loads from 30,000 lbs. to 150,000 lbs. each.
Wall Failure Repair & Structural Reinforcement
Intermountain Foundation Repair, Inc. is the local distributor of the FORTRESS STABILIZATION reinforcing product. We primarily use this epoxy encapsulated carbon and Kevlar fiber product to reinforce basement walls that have begun to fail, bow and crack. The material can also be used to restore structural integrity to bridge columns, concrete beams, and to mend cracks in concrete structures.
