Detailed Carbon Fiber/Kevlar Strap Information
Soil pressure can fracture a block or concrete foundation wall, causing horizontal and vertical cracks and/or bowing. The foundation must be stabilized to assure that a homeowner retains the full value of his or her home. A fractured basement wall is serious trouble and a major hamper on the value and sale of the home.
The Carbon Fiber grid halts any further movement of a block or concrete wall. It will do it easily, safely and without any outside excavation. The grid lies flat against the wall and when painted over, are hardly noticeable. The wall will never bow or crack again.
Carbon fiber grid straps have an extremely low profile that virtually makes them invisible, while other systems like steel bracing can protrude 6” – 12” from the wall. Unlike steel bracing, carbon fiber does not rust! Carbon fiber straps can be covered over with paints or other coatings to further enhance the looks of the finished repair.
