A house that has cracks inside or outside may have foundation issues that need to be repaired. The cracks can be found in the brick, sheetrock, floorboards, tile, and foundation. Many times gaps can be found between some doors and windows. The damages can also cause problems in the basement including leaning walls and flooding.
The reason for foundation damage is the soil beneath the home. Expansive soil can shrink and swell according to the moisture in the ground. High moisture levels can cause the soil to expand which will heave and lift the home. Some factors that contribute to too much moisture in the soil are plumbing leaks and improper drainage. The opposite can also happen. If there’s not enough moisture in the soil, it will shrink and cause the foundation to settle. Besides wind and heat, another factor that can cause a lack of moisture in the ground is trees. If trees are present close to a home, the roots can extend under the home’s foundation and take in the moisture from the soil.
Why do we need to repair these? If the foundation isn’t repaired, the issues can get worse over time. Repairing the foundation cannot only help with the cracks in the house, but it can also fix doors and windows that no longer close properly. Another reason for foundation repair is the home’s resale value. Since most people end up selling their home at some point, the resale value will be significantly lower if the home has foundation and structural damages. These damages must be disclosed to potential buyers. In the end, no one wants to purchase a home with signs of foundation failure and it is cheaper to repair your homes foundation rather than risk lowering the price substantially to make a sale.

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.
