Trusted Foundation Repair from Residential to Heavy Commercial
In some structures, insufficient reinforcement or overburden from water saturation causes walls to bow or crack inwards and eventually fail, if not repaired.
Traditionally, a repair contractor would excavate fill from behind the wall, temporarily shore the house or other structure above, and level and reinforce the wall with tie backs and steel channel bolted to the inside. Because this traditional method is both costly and invasive, Straight Line Construction Co. prefers to use carbon fiber strapping when possible.
If caught early–when structural movement is minimal–we can place straps in vertical strips along the wall to stabilize the wall and prevent future movement. We can fill and seal cracks using epoxy injection and in some cases combine it with steel staples to stabilize the wall.
When to use the Carbon Fiber Repair Solution
Fortress Stabilization has developed a concrete reinforcement system using carbon fiber technology and Kevlar straps, which wrap structures and increase lateral and blowout strength.
