Supporting Patio and Front Stairways
Ram Jack New England is well known as a RI Foundation Repair company but many people do not know that we can repair front concrete steps and porches that have settled.
Our Project Manager will do a visual inspection of your porch, patio, front steps or walkways that have settled. Many times he will do elevations to determine how far the foundation or walkway has settled.
He will provide you with a written plan of repair along with an estimate of the cost to do said job. Most time it is best to support an existing porch or concrete steps rather than demolish and rebuild new. The reason is that the soils under the existing foundation, walkway or steps is still there and the new porch or walkway will settle once again.
Driven Steel Piles for Maximum Porch Foundation Stability
It is usually best to drive deep driven steel piles alongside the existing steps and install a bracket that will allow us to lift the structure back up to as close to where it originally was. Even if we determine your front porch needs to be demolished, we would still recommend installing new construction steel piles under where the new steps would be installed. This will guarantee that the newly installed porch, steps, patio or walkway will not settle.
