Tampa Bay- Foundation Repair Contractor

Foundation work is definitely not a do-it-yourself project, so it makes good sense to get at least three licensed contractors to give you a detailed proposal along with an assessment of your issues. The average inspection takes about two hours. Ron Davidson of Ram Jack Systems also offers the following advice and precautionary measures:

  • Educate yourself on foundation repair methods and ask a lot of questions. Don’t make your final decision based on advertising and cheap prices. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
  • Don’t do business with a contractor that does not have their foundation repair methods evaluated by ICC-ES (International Code Council Evaluation Services). This nonprofit organization ensures that building products meet code compliance.
  • In most areas of the country, a reputable contractor will have a clause for the depth of the hydraulic piling (typically 20 to 30 feet). Beyond that depth, there is usually an additional charge, ranging from $20 to $30 per foot. If a contractor has no depth clause, be cautious. It’s unlikely that the contractor would continue to operate at a loss, and would instead just stop at the depth that would guarantee a profit.
  • Some foundation repair projects require removal of landscaping in the areas of the work, and the contractor typically won’t guarantee that a bush or shrub will survive after removal and replacement.
  • Warranties or guarantees for foundation repair work are very important, so pay close attention to their terms. Remember that a warranty is only as good as the company that backs it. Look for a national company that can offer a warranty trust. This means that if the company goes out of business, there is a plan in place to provide follow-up service, if needed.

All Florida Ram Jack   Seawall & Bulkhead Repair ,Soil Stabilization, Seawall and Bulkhead Repair

\

 

Our Tampa, Florida soil stabilization company understands the special foundation needs of our customers living along the coast. For those living on or near beaches, seawalls are an important part of foundation safety.

Seawalls are built parallel to the coastline to provide safety on muddy or sandy beach areas, in addition to protecting coastal land sections from erosion. For coastal foundation support, our foundation reinforcement company offers coastal timber support as well as bulkhead seawall tieback.

Ram Jack Seawall Repair

Ram Jack Seawall offers a patent-pending repair method for concrete, steel, wood and vinyl seawalls. The system can often return crooked or leaning seawalls to their post-installation position. Ram Jack’s seawall repair methods can permanently stabilize seawalls, virtually eliminating the need for future repairs.

Timber Pile Support System

Erosion is prevalent on sandy soils and beaches, causing homes built on timber pilings to move and sink over time. Ram Jack installs both helical piers and piling brackets in order to keep the piling in place. We use standoff brackets to hold helicals in place throughout the lifting process. Ram Jack’s brackets keep the timber pilings straight, without any tilting.

Bulkhead Tie-back Support System

Ram Jack installs helical piers and seawall brackets to repair bowing concrete and vinyl seawalls. The brackets can also be installed during seawall construction to prevent bowing from the start. The helicals are driven deep into the soil to hold the pressure from the wall and straighten it. Ram Jack includes a five-year warranty on the seawall brackets. These seawall brackets are a unique patent-pending design by our Tampa foundation repair company.

Leaning Chimney | Foundation Repair or Structural?

A very common problem in residential construction is a leaning chimney.  Which way the chimney is leaning will tell you if you have a structural issue or a foundation issue.

 The two main types of leaning chimneys are:

  • A Chimney Leaning AWAY from the house.

  • A Chimney Leaning OVER or ON the house/roof.

If you have a chimney where the top portion (near the roof line) is leaning over or on the house and looks like if it continues it will come crashing into your home – you have a serious structural problem.

 If your chimney looks like it is leaning away from your house – as if it was going to fall in your yard – you most likely have a foundation problem.  While there are many reasons a chimney can lean away from a house – the most common are

  • uncompacted fill material (such as a chimney near a basement or deep crawlspace)

  • Shallow footings

  • Poor or unsuitable soils to handle a concentrated load

  • Poor drainage/water management

In any of these cases, the use of a helical or resistance pier can be used to support the falling or leaning chimney.  In many cases the chimney can be pushed back and lifted at the same time resulting in a much improved look.  We typically see 50% or more of the chimney lean restored.

Get good professional advice before you make any decisions about how you are going to repair your leaning chimney.

Today’s RamJack foundation repairs methods make it possible to move a chimney back into plumb position.

This can be done without the higher cost of demolition and rebuilding of your chimney.

If your chimney foundation is in good repair then the repair that is most used today is the helical pier. Helical piers can be used when forces like the chimney is pushing into the soil around it.

It is like a big steel screw that will be driven under the leaning chimney until it reaches a good soil base.

Brackets are placed on the helical piers and slipped under the chimney footing.

Next a hydraulic jack will be used to slowly lift the chimney up into plumb position. The brackets are secured and your yard was hardly touched. This will once again stabilize the chimney.

Not repairing a leaning chimney can be dangerous for your house and your family, even your neighbors. You could have further damage to your house and bigger repair bills.

Take the steps today to ensure this doesn’t happen. Contact an foundation engineer to find the right underpinning solution for your leaning chimney.
