Foundation Repair

Another structural foundation repair using Carbon Fiber Straps. Due to excessive Hydrostatic pressure, foundation wall moved inward and and after there was a flood and paneling was removed, the Homeowner noticed excessive  horizontal cracking.

Crack is filled with Hydro Cement and wall is plained with a special tool to provide proper surface for epoxy.

After wall preparation is done, Carbon Fiber straps are installed 4' on center to stabilize foundation wall and prevent further movement.
