Using Helical Pier Driving Head
The Ram Jack helical pier driving head delivers power to long sections of piering for a faster installation and a stronger pier, while transferring loads from the existing foundation to a soil suitable for the load.
Our patented push pier lift system uses high carbon steel pilings that are driven vertically by 70,000 lbs. of hydraulic power to an average of 25 feet below the home to anchor the structure and prevent future settlement. When needed, a hydraulic pump uses a synchronized lift to raise the affected areas of the home simultaneously to maximum practical recovery.
Using Helical Anchors
Let Ram Jack help you increase the value of a new home or building using helical anchors installed during construction, preventing downward settlement before it starts. By monitoring hydraulic pressures, anchors are load tested as they are installed.
Helical Anchors are easy and cost-effective to install. The capacity of each pile is accurately measured using installation torque and can be installed under any weather conditions. The fieldwork for a typical house can be done in one to two days.
Helical Anchors are a good choice if there are nearby or adjacent buildings inhibiting excavation. They are much safer than the traditional trenching method and won’t disturb the soil around the piers during installation, eliminating messy soil cleanup.
Adjustable brackets, used with either block or helical piers, are designed to lift sagging interior floors at the load point. If necessary, these brackets can easily be adjusted to counteract any additional concrete block settling.
Traditional methods, using steel shims at the load point, create more structural stress and settling and may need to be reinstalled later.
Slab Support using Floor Slab Support
After installing helical anchors through the floor slab, the floor is raised mechanically and supported on firm strata. Once the floor is raised, cement is added to provide equal support.
Ram Jack stands behind every job with a transferable Life of Structure Warranty on all Ram Jack residential foundation systems.
Slab Support using Pressure Grouting
Ram Jacks slab raising process forces a special cement/soil grout under the sunken concrete and lifts it to its original position. Its faster, cleaner and a fraction of the cost of replacement.
Bowed Basement Wall Support
Using Helical Anchor Support Systems and The Reinforcer® Carbon Fiber System
Helical anchors are commonly used in the repair of both retaining walls and basement walls, transferring tension loads from the existing foundation to a soil suitable for the load.
Ram Jack can also stabilize basement walls using The Reinforcer®, a 4-inch wide carbon fiber plate with structural epoxy. When the Reinforcer® is applied to foundations, it counteracts further outside pressure on the wall, taking the tension force or tensile load that the concrete or mortar joint cannot.
Crawl Space Encapsulation
CrawlShield - Crawlspace Vapor Barrier Application
A dirt crawl space is typically saturated with moisture. Since warm air rises, the moisture in the crawl space will rise and enter the home or building. Installing a vapor barrier provides the space with a moisture protection layer to protect the structure from the negative effects of moisture such as mold, floor failure, increased electricity costs, odors, insects, and dust mites. Moisture effects can also cause or worsen conditions such as asthma, hay fever and or allergies.
1. Reduce moisture & soil gas.
2. Reduces condensation, mold growth, and poor air quality within a home or building.
3. Crawl space can be used for storage.
4. Crawl Shield is absolutely the best product on the market for a crawl space application.

"The crew arrived, worked hard, were organized and thorough. Their work was very neat. The moldy smell went away within a day. The smell had always been apart of our lives, once the crew left it was immediately apparent that the smell was no longer there. That was really great, we are very happy with the results."
