Sinkhole-Damaged Garage Gets New Foundation

Press Release ( - Chicago, Illinois - Jun 01, 2017 - Poor soil conditions led to a sinkhole that led to the degradation of a garage floor in an Illinois home.  To support a new concrete slab and prevent further damage, Ram Jack Illinois installed eight helical piles with guide-sleeves, along with 80 tons of granular material.

Homeowners of a Barrington, IL home were surprised to find that a sinkhole formed underneath their garage floor slab.  Structural Shop LTD came in to access the damage, then contacted Ram Jack Illinois to create a repair plan.  Helical piles were ideal for the situation and, since the soils at hand were soft, Ram Jack decided to use guide-sleeves.  Eight piles in total were installed—four for the existing slab and four for a new slab.  80 tons of CA-6 were also used to create a compacted soil surface.  In the end, the garage was stabilized and ready for everyday usage.
