wall tiebacks - solution for basement and wall problems

helical tie-back anchors

Based on the capacity that is designed by one of our in-house engineers, the wall tie-back anchors are then rotated into the ground to a precise torque and depth. To achieve lateral stability, we use this system to support walls. As you can see in the picture above, one end is applied to the wall, and then the tie back is twisted at an angle into the ground to enforce the wall of a structure that is in danger from things like wind, earth’s pressure, or an earthquake.

helical tie-back anchors
  • Manufactured from high strength carbon steel tubing
  • Minimal/no excavation is necessary
  • Frequently used to repair retaining & basement walls
  • Ability to be linked together to attain necessary length
  • Performs well when dealing with changing soil conditions
  • Can be installed in any weather condition

SRS revolutionizes concrete and masonry structural repair by combining carbon fiber fabric with a structural epoxy adhesive that arrests any further movement and is much more affordable compared to outdated methods that involve excavation, steel I-beams, or cumbersome unsightly supports. Structural Reinforcement Solutions have designed a system to sustain walls that have fractured or bowed due to water damage or other causes.

We can use carbon fiber for numerous repairs from parking garages and bridges to wall stabilization and crack repair. Learn more about each application below.

Benefits of carbon fiber

  • Arrests structure movement
  • Less than 1/8" thick
  • Able to be painted (more aesthetically appealing option)
  • Conforms to structure
  • 196,000 PSI tensile strength
  • 10X stronger than steel
  • 100% made in the USA

Moving soil and erosion can create complex problems for the structural integrity of your home. The purpose of retaining walls is to hold soil back to protect structures against the harmful effects of sliding soil and erosion. If you have discovered that your retaining wall is failing, Ram Jack West’s helical piles are the perfect solution to achieve maximum stability.

Our solutions offer stability for retaining walls with these problems

  • Cracks
  • Soil pressure
  • Bowing of the wall
  • Horizontal movement

If your property is waterside, then the integrity of your seawall is crucial for the overall health of your home. The purpose of a seawall is to protect your property from erosion by rivers or streams, ponds, lakes, or the ocean.

Ignoring seawall problems can have dangerous ramifications to the structural integrity of your seawall and can even result in complete failure. Some might suggest replacing the seawall entirely but this method is time-consuming, expensive, and often requires the removal of structures near the seawall. Ineffective methods such as hydraulic cement, slurry, sodium silicate, and crushed seashells can be quick fixes but fail to be a permanent solution.

Ram Jack West is a proud member of the Seawall Repair Network, using advanced technologies to completely restore the structural integrity of your seawall.

Warning Signs of seawall failure:

  • Cracks in the concrete
  • Depressions in the soil
  • Bowing of the wall
  • Movement
  • Rust stains

Not all repair methods and seawall companies are the same. Some contractors often end up making the problem worse by installing inferior repair materials like hydraulic cement, slurry, sodium silicate, and crushed seashells. These repair methods are not only ineffective but also potentially dangerous. They can lead to further damage and even more expensive repairs in the future if not taken care of now. The problem with these solutions is that they do not address the underlying issue of why your seawall failed in the first place - which is unstable soil surrounding your seawall.

Ram Jack provides the most effective proprietary seawall repair material, with advanced training in Seawall Repair Network product and solution application methods.
