Determining the Method of Repair
Once you decide you need a foundation repair, the next step is to determine the correct method of repair. Since foundations contain differences, repair methods also differ. These methods vary in price and in cost of installation—they also differ in their effectiveness over time. Once the appropriate method has been determined by a foundation repair specialist, an estimate can be generated for the customer.
While some companies use concrete pilings and cable-threaded concrete, these methods are not permanent and can often cause more foundation settlement over time.
Ram Jack uses strong steel piles to help repair foundation problems.
- Helical Piles
- Driven Piles
Since these are all very different from each other, it can prove to be difficult to estimate a repair cost until it is determined what kind of method needs to be used.
