Ram Jack First to Receive Approval from California Building Code Standards

Nation’s Only Foundation Repair Franchise Leads the Way for Hydraulically Driven Steel Piling in Southern California

November 13, 2013 // Franchising.com // ADA, Okla. – Ram Jack, the nation’s leading foundation repair specialists, today announces they have received general approval for technical modifications of home and commercial foundations using proprietary helical pile and hydraulically driven steel piling foundation systems from the Department of Building and Safety for the city of Los Angeles. The Oklahoma-based company is the first to receive accreditation from the Los Angeles Research Report (LARR) to use steel pilings for foundation repairs in Los Angeles. Any company wishing to provide foundation repair services must meet and comply with the new LARR standards. All construction companies, homebuilders and consumers alike should be aware of the new accreditations.

"The standards of California’s building practices have varied over years of building booms and wanes, often having rushed timelines and poor site preparation. Paired with slope failure and expansive clay soils, Los Angeles’ 3.5 million residential units are no stranger to home foundation failures," said Randon Gregory, Director of Franchise Development at Ram Jack. "Ram Jack’s steel piling methods are faster and more economical than traditional repairs helping homeowners protect up to 60 percent of their resale value."

With a dedication to innovation and top engineering, Ram Jack products are designed to achieve more than a 99 percent success rate and are backed by a lifetime warranty, whereas the nature of competing systems face inevitable failure. Additionally, its trusted methods and products have been called upon to assist more than the average homeowner, working to stabilize foundations using proprietary helical piling for the largest solar collector field in the world as well as numerous commercial structures, bridges and seawalls.

"Receiving LARR approval prior to any competing brand is a testament to the quality of work maintained by all sectors of our business from product development to the construction teams," added Gregory.

Ram Jack is currently seeking franchisee candidates with strong business acumen and a construction or engineering background to lead expansion in the untapped Southern California market. With a low investment range between $120,000-240,000 and an initial franchise fee of $25,000, Ram Jack is a distinctive opportunity to diversify an existing related business.

LARR is a service provided by the city to verify products and services meet strict standards before being offered to the public. Ram Jack Helical Pile and Hydraulically Driven Steel Piling Foundation Systems were approved based on tests in accordance with ICC ES Acceptance Criteria and are exclusive to remedial measures for existing foundations.
