Foundation Repair Solutions

/// Permanent & Innovative foundation systems

Stable foundation = safe home. The job of your foundation is to evenly distribute weight throughout your home to prevent settlement from occurring. Foundations fail for various reasons, including intense heat shrinking the soil beneath the foundation, plumbing leaks, improper drainage, poor foundation construction, and poor soil conditions, to name a few.

If it's found that your home sits at a critical low point on your property where water can collect and damage your foundation, then action needs to be taken to remedy this sloping issue. Grading a yard is one solution but, in some cases, lifting a house to repair the foundation is the most effective way to keep a house dry and protected against significant erosion and water damage.

Ram Jack West can raise homes, both safely and economically, using a variety of proven elevation techniques and foundation systems customized to each job. This process is ideally suited for homes on existing timber pilings that are in good condition, where the home is now too low per revised flood maps, or by local ordinance. Our Sandy Bracket helical system can be used to elevate homes and provide homeowners peace of mind.

Our Proven lifting & raising solutions

Ram Jack’s method of lifting homes is far less invasive than a traditional lift because the home is never disconnected from its foundation or moved off of its existing footprint; therefore, risks associated with traditional lifting and moving a home are greatly reduced.

Benefits of our method:

  • Homeowners are not required to vacate their homes for months in advance or for weeks afterward. Where local officials and utilities are cooperative, homeowners only need to vacate one to two weeks rather than months
  • The process is a “Sustainable Solution” because no new timber resources are used—existing ones are simply “recycled” to a new height
  • Our Sandy Bracket helical system offers a secure foundation, especially when connected with a grade beam. This offers greater “sway mitigation” and peace-of-mind on windy days, compared to homes elevated on timber pilings
