Supportworks' foundation repair products, installed by Ridgeback Basement Systems, are designed by licensed professional structural and geotechnical engineers (PE) and contractors on staff at FSI.
The products are designed in accordance with traditional, accepted AISC methods. Our systems are also tested at independent laboratories and, if required, at independent laboratories accredited by the International Accreditation Service (IAS) to perform product-specific testing.
Supportworks' Helical Anchors (also referred to as tiebacks) provide lateral stability to foundation walls with unbalanced earth pressures.
Helical anchors can be installed with hand-held equipment, mini-excavators, skid steers, backhoes, trackhoes, or crane-supported rigs so the anchors can be installed in almost any application.
Push Pier System
Supportworks' Push Pier System uses rugged steel pier sections, driven deep into the earth's soil, to transfer the weight of a structure onto competent, load-bearing strata or bedrock.
Not only does this foundation piling permanently stabilize the structure's foundation, it also provides the best opportunity to lift the structure back to its original, level position.
SmartJacks — Crawl Space Jacks
The Supportworks' SmartJack® rests on a solid concrete base which is placed on engineered fill. An adjustable, heavy-duty steel column is secured to both the concrete base and to the bottom of the beam or joists above.
The unique adjustment ability of the SmartJack® allows it to support the load above. In many cases it can lift the floors and walls back to level, restoring integrity to a living area.
