Proactive Construction Solutions Mitigate Future Foundation Failure

When the words “foundation repair” are heard, many may think of homes with cracked walls and unlevel flooring. Foundation repair is commonly a reactive situation which homeowners and business owners take action after their foundation has gone awry. Ram Jack wants to break the reactive stereotype about foundation failure and drive the industry into their proactive mindset.

Many don’t know that foundation failure could be prevented with the right equipment and contractor. Ram Jack products are not solely for remedial foundation repair: Ram Jack helical piles can also be utilized in the construction of new structures, residential and commercial alike. The company offers many tried and true foundation solution products such as helical and driven piles. Helical piles, in particular, can be used to secure and stabilize a home’s foundation in the early stages of construction. Jimmy Ireland, the National Production Trainer at Ram Jack, states, “Before building homes or commercial structures, the supporting foundation underneath needs to be considered. Correcting foundation issues before they happen saves both time and money.”

For remedial repairs, Ram Jack evaluation specialists conduct a thorough evaluation of the property to determine the best course of action. Every property is unique, thus needing a comprehensive assessment, and Ram Jack wants to ensure the job is done right the first time. With new construction, engineers review plans and custom-design a foundation to accommodate the load of the future structure. After the land is excavated for the installation of the foundation, Ram Jack helical piles can be installed to the optimal depth depending on the soil conditions. After installation, the piles are precisely cut to the proper length and sealed. Once the process is complete the foundation can now be formed and poured over the secured piles or embedded into the foundation itself. “We offer the highest quality, American-made steel products on the market. Ram Jack's engineered products and solutions not only repair damage but can also prevent it,” says Ireland.
