Comprehensive Guide to Foundation Problems and Structural Repair Solutions

Understanding Foundation Problems

Causes of Foundation Issues

Foundation problems typically stem from various factors, including:

  • Poor Soil Conditions: The soil surrounding a home plays a crucial role in supporting its foundation. Weak or unstable soil can lead to settlement issues and structural instability.
  • Construction Defects: Inferior construction materials or improper building techniques during the property’s construction phase can contribute to foundation problems.
  • Environmental Factors: Colorado’s unique environmental conditions, such as fluctuating water tables, heavy rainfall, and snowmelt, can exert significant pressure on basements and foundations, exacerbating existing issues.

Common Symptoms of Foundation Problems

Identifying the signs of foundation problems early on can prevent further damage. Look out for the following symptoms:

  • Leaning Walls: Walls that appear to tilt or lean inward or outward.
  • Floor Cracks: Visible cracks on the floor, especially in concrete slabs.
  • Basement Wall Cracks: Cracks in basement walls, often accompanied by water leakage.
  • Sinking or Settlement: Uneven or sagging floors, indicating foundation settlement.

About Ram Jack

Ram Jack is a family-owned business that began operations in 1968, in Ada, OK, where we currently source our piers and brackets. Back then, concrete piering was the original repair method used simply because it was the only technology available at the time. Over time, it became evident that concrete piers did not provide long-term stabilization of foundations and only provided a short-term warranty period. To guarantee the highest grade of customer satisfaction, a greater solution needed to be found.

The Ram Jack owners embarked on a research program to develop a foundation repair system to stand the test of time. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office first issued a patent to Ram Jack for its foundation repair system in 1985. Over the next few years, additional refinements and patents have followed, resulting in the strongest patented system in the industry. Ram Jack driven pilings are ICC-ES recognized (International Construction Code—Evaluation Services). Ram Jack is one of only two ICC-ES recognized foundation repair companies in the industry. Ram Jack’s products meet or exceed code requirements set down by ICC-ES for both commercial and residential properties.
