Expert Evaluation and Permanent, Affordable Solutions by Ram Jack of VA

When it comes to foundation repair, a thorough and accurate evaluation is crucial. At Ram Jack of VA, our experts evaluate foundation issues and determine the most effective solutions. Our evaluation process typically goes as follows.

  • Visual Inspection

    Our experienced professionals will visually assess the signs and symptoms of foundation damage, such as cracks, sloping floors, misaligned doors/windows, and other visible indicators. They will also inspect the basement or crawlspace for any underlying issues.

  • Measurement and Analysis

    Our team will measure and analyze the extent of foundation movement or settlement using advanced technology and tools. This data helps in understanding the severity of the problem and designing the appropriate repair solution.

  • Soil Analysis

    We also consider soil conditions and composition surrounding the foundation. Soil tests and analysis help us determine the underlying causes of foundation damage and select the most suitable repair methods.

Permanent, Affordable Solutions

1 Helical Piers

These steel piers are installed deep into load-bearing strata, transferring the structure's weight to more stable soil layers. Helical piers are effective for both residential and commercial projects, offering a reliable solution for foundation stabilization.

2 Steel Push Piers

This method involves driving steel piers into the ground until they reach load-bearing soil or bedrock. The piers are then used to lift and stabilize the foundation. Steel push piers are a durable and cost-effective solution for various foundation types.

3 Wall Anchors

Wall anchors are used to repair bowing or leaning foundation walls. They consist of steel plates installed inside the foundation walls and anchors driven into stable soil outside. Wall anchors provide lateral support, preventing further wall movement and potentially restoring the walls to their original position.

4 Crawl Space Stabilization

For properties with crawl spaces, we offer solutions to reinforce and stabilize these areas. This includes addressing moisture issues, encapsulating the crawl space, and installing support systems to prevent sagging or settling floors.

5 Additional Services

Ram Jack of VA also offers services like waterproofing, drainage solutions, and concrete repair, which are often essential to protecting your property.

Variables that affect the cost of Foundation Repair

1 Severity of the Damage

The extent of the foundation settlement is a critical factor in determining the cost of potential repairs. Minor issues like small cracks or settling may require less extensive repairs, while severe damage such as significant foundation shifting or structural instability will involve more extensive and costly repairs.

2 Foundation Type and Design

Different types of foundations, such as slab-on-grade, crawl space, or basement foundations, have varying levels of complexity. Different foundations require different methods that impact repair costs.

3 Foundation Accessibility

The accessibility of the foundation affects the difficulty and labor required for repairs. If the foundation is easily accessible, such as in a crawlspace or with a basement, it can generally be repaired at a lower cost compared to foundations with limited accessibility.

4 Material Cost

Ram Jack uses 100% high quality American made steel products. Steel prices fluctuate and this does have an impact on the cost of repairs.

5 Soil Conditions

The type and condition of the soil beneath the foundation play a significant role in foundation repair costs. It’s critical to understand that foundation repair piles must be installed correctly and at the correct depth to stop future settlement and damage. Installing deep foundation piers may increase cost but in many cases, it is necessary for permanent foundation repair.

It's important to note that these variables are general factors that can impact the cost of residential foundation repair. Each case is unique, so it's important to contact Ram Jack for an on-site evaluation. Our consultants will provide you with a permanent, affordable solution custom designed for your repair.
