The use of helical piles in construction dates back nearly 200 years. In the 1830’s, the earliest versions of today’s helical piles were used in England for moorings and for the foundations of lighthouse structures. Today, helical piles are gaining worldwide acceptance throughout the construction industry and engineering community due to the versatility of both the product and the installation equipment. In 2007, the International Code Council Evaluation Service, Inc. (ICC-ES) approved AC358, Acceptance Criteria for Helical Foundation Systems and Devices. Helical piles are also now included in the 2009 International Building Code.
Reliability…It’s the Foundation of RamJack
When you’re looking for a company to repair your foundation, reliability is what matters—reliability of the company, reliability of the repair, and reliability of the warranty. Over 40 years of experience has perfected RamJack’s products to meet or exceed code requirements for commercial and residential applications. In fact, ICC Evaluation Services, Inc. (ICC-ES), has confirmed that specific RamJack foundation products comply with the provisions in their AC-10 code.
Your warranty is backed by the strength of your local participating RamJack company, and, when registered, backed by the RamJack Dealers Association National Limited Warranty Trust. This RamJack Dealers Association National Limited Warranty Trust allows RamJack customers to have access to warranty repairs, if they should arise, regardless of the status of your installing RamJack dealer.
Many companies offer a warranty… but what happens to that warranty if the company is sold, goes out of business, or the owner retires? If the company or franchise no longer exists, you have no one to call in the event of a warranty issue. The National Limited Warranty Trust allows you to RELY on RamJack for the life of your installing dealer’s warranty!
RamJack Foundation Solutions has been a pioneer in the foundation repair industry since 1968. This unique National Limited Warranty Trust was developed by the RamJack Dealers Association to extend the confidence we have in our product to you.

It guarantees you will always have access to warranty service should the need arise.
Q. Don’t other companies have warranties like this?

A. Questions or claim information is to be referred to the RamJack Dealers Association National Limited Warranty Trust. You will receive full contact information and instructions on how to initiate a claim, if necessary, once you are enrolled.

A. No. All warranty issues need to be referred to the RamJack dealer that completed the initial work. If that dealer is no longer available to fulfill that obligation, contact the RamJack Dealers Association National Limited Warranty Trust.
