Carbon Fiber Foundation Repair
Carbon Fiber Foundation Repair In Utah
There are a variety of methods to repair a foundation wall, some more invasive than others. Carbon fiber foundation repair applications can stabilize a bowing foundation wall without the need for excavating or drilling. These applications are done directly to the surface of the foundation wall. Once installed they can be painted over or have framing put up right over the top of the repair, hiding all evidence of the repairs that have been made. Carbon fiber foundation repair ensures no lost space in your basement as the repair is so lightweight and slim. It is also ideal for small working areas as no excavation or demolition is required to apply the carbon fiber to the foundation.
What Causes A Foundation To Crack or Bow?
There are a number of reasons that a foundation wall crack. Common cracking that can be corrected using foundation carbon fiber is commonly caused by surrounding soil pressure around the foundation. This can be a result of expansive soils or large tree roots.
Cracking caused by foundation settling often has a corresponding crack on an opposite or adjacent foundation wall. These cracks are best repaired using stabilization methods that are installed at the footing of the foundation.
