Supporting Post Installation & Replacement
Columns & Load Bearing Posts
A house usually has columns to support the beam span between the foundation walls. Sometimes these columns can fail to support the weight of the structure they were designed to hold.
When this happens, our Project Manager can help by doing a visual inspection of the columns and taking elevations to determine how much the columns have settled. At Ram Jack New England, we can design a plan of repair to either help support an existing column or remove and replace it with a column that will be able to support the weight of the structure.
Helix Pile Installation
In most cases, the beam can be temporarily supported while we remove the failed column. Then we can install a helix pile into the soil until it supports the weight and then a 2′ x 2″ concrete pad can be installed right on top of the steel bracket. Once this concrete dries, we can then install a new column. The last thing would be to remove the temporary supports and transfer the weight to the new column.
Payment Plans Available for Column Installation
Sometimes our customers will be concerned about how they will afford to do such a necessary repair. With Ram Jack New England, you can arrange a payment plan that will fit your needs. With our Easy Pay Program, we even have payment plans to help you spread your payment over time with no added interest charges. We also provide helical pile installation for new construction.
