Ram Jack is a foundation repair company offering a variety of Foundation Repair services to homeowners and property owners. The signs of foundation damage often start with cracks in your walls, cracks in brick, sloping floors and more. There are many different types of foundation repair options if foundation damage is discovered. However, not all wall cracks point to foundation damage and Ram Jack offers a variety of wall crack repairs.

It is important to have the experts look at your foundation walls and determine why the wall cracked, and how it should be repaired.

A concrete block or poured foundation can crack for many reasons, including:

  • Concrete dried too quickly causing shrinkage cracks
  • Lateral forces pushing in on a foundation wall
  • Expansive clay soil pushing against a foundation wall
  • Soft, unsupported soils below the foundation

It is important to have our foundation repair consultants look at your foundation walls and determine why the wall cracked, and how it should be repaired.

Structural Foundation Cracks vs. Shrinkage

Many homeowners want foundation cracks repaired because, when it rains, leaks can lead to water damage inside the home, in the crawlspace and basement. However, while most foundation wall cracks are normal shrinkage cracks that are non-structural, it is wise to have a foundation expert look BEFORE repairing the cracks.

Our Ram Jack consultants are trained to diagnose simple shrinkage cracks versus cracks that are part of a bigger structural problem in the home. Our foundation repair consultant will perform an inspection of your crawlspace or basement, your main level, and also the top floors of the house, looking for signs of a structural problem. Sloping floors and window misalignment is a sign that a foundation crack may be more than an aesthetic problem.

Concrete can be one of the most reliable and flexible building materials we utilize today, but it’s not immune to cracking, shifting, or crumbling over time. Shifting, heaving, erosion, and plenty of other factors can cause concrete material to develop cracks, which can become dangerous if left unrepaired. Ram Jack’s polyurethane foam injection service is a revolutionary repair solution that’s quick and affordable. Poly foam injection doesn’t require a large crew, demolition, or expensive replacement.

No matter how large or small your problem might be, we’re committed to offering you a quality solution that prioritizes safety and integrity, while being delivered on-time.

A flexible solution for your repair needs

Whether you’re dealing with a crack in your slab foundation, a sinking driveway, or a crack in a concrete wall, Ram Jack’s polyurethane resin injection is a quick, affordable solution. Polyurethane resin injections are not only flexible in that they mold to fill the exact shape of the crack, but they also bond to almost any material. As a result, you get a rock-solid and safe repair that will last for decades. When combined with a slab-lifting solution, even wildly-uneven slabs can be repaired and made stable and durable once again. Don’t replace it, lift and repair it with our polyurethane injection service.

How does a polyurethane injection work? It's simple:

  • Small holes are drilled into the slab to access the soil underneath
  • Polyurethane foam is injected into the hole
  • The foam expands, hardens, and raises the slab back into position

These treatments are minimally-invasive and require little-to-no disruption of your home to complete, often requiring just a few hours to finish the job!

Do you have concrete patios, sidewalks, and slabs that are cracked, buckled, and uneven? Not only is this concrete slab movement an eye sore for your property, but it's also dangerous. These uneven surfaces are often the culprit for trip hazard accidents and injuries.

The experienced foundation repair professionals at Ram Jack West can offer numerous concrete slab repair services, including a method known as "mudjacking", to remedy uneven slabs. Mudjacking (aka "slabjacking" or "pressure grouting") is an effective way to provide a hydraulic lift to concrete surfaces that are sinking or shifting. This is frequently the result of erosion, poor drainage, and soil settlement beneath the slabs. Mudjacking can provide support and raise uneven slabs by injecting a special grout mixture into voids beneath the surface.

Mudjacking is the process of:

  • Drilling small holes through the compromised concrete surface
  • Pumping grout (water and concrete mixture) into holes
  • Ensuring that existing voids are filled, the grout dries and provides a hydraulic lift to the slab so it becomes level

Mudjacking is a relatively swift and noninvasive way to bring uniformity back to your concrete slabs. If your home or property is suffering from uneven patios or walkways, then we are ready to hear from you. One of our foundation repair consultants can assess your property and, if needed, offer you a long lasting and affordable solution.
