Carbon Fiber Foundation Reinforcement

Bowing foundation walls and cracks in foundation walls are signs that your foundation needs repairs.

As a homeowner it is important to watch for signs of foundation failure. The earlier repairs are made the better. Horizontal or stair step cracks in block walls and diagonal cracks in poured walls are some of the most alarming signs of structural movement in a foundation wall. Carbon Fiber Foundation Reinforcement is proven to have a higher strength than its steel beam predecessor. Carbon fiber straps and staples are extremely low profile and can be painted over even.

Excessive backfill amounts and poor drainage around the home are big causes of bowing foundation walls. These items cause an excessive amount of weight to be applied to the foundation wall laterally causing inward movement on foundation walls. Once the foundation walls begin to move inward and bow or crack, they can still be saved as long as they are repaired in a timely manner.
