A home is usually the biggest investment a person or family makes – not to mention the value of the possessions contained within it. A cave-in can cause irreparable damage to the house and contents. So it’s important to secure, stabilize and correct deteriorating basement walls before it’s too late.
Bowed, cracked or leaning basement walls are a sign that something is going very wrong with the structural integrity of your property. This issue happens for a couple of reasons:
Pressure from too much water building up against the walls or
Soil that is around your property swells and exerts pressure that forces the foundation wall inward
In the past homeowners had few choices for repairing foundation walls, except to excavate around the wall or build a new basement wall. This solution is expensive, time consuming, and destructive to landscaping. Not only that, the problem can recur if the wall is not properly rebuilt or if steps are not taken to correct the causes of the initial deterioration.

Carbon Fiber Beams
Carbon Fiber Beams are designed for strengthening concrete in a vertical and horizontal direction. This is typically used in conjunction with traditional foundation repair products, concrete repair and crack injection applications. NOTE: If the wall has a bow or displacement near 2 inches or more, we cannot install carbon fiber before excavating behind and straightening the wall.
Carbon Fiber Beams are constructed of 35 Stitch‐Bonded Uni‐Directional Carbon Fabric that is produced from continuous tow carbon fiber. Unique fiber spreading techniques are utilized to obtain the correct UD fabric weight. Carbon Beam can be used for everything from foundation repair, concrete crack repair, concrete reinforcement, bowed basement and foundation walls, reinforcing concrete in roads and bridges, restoring the structural integrity of commercial buildings, both post and pre‐construction, and even stabilizing mine shafts.
Whether the cracking or bowing is caused by inadequate drainage, improper construction practices, expansive soil or another problem, don’t risk the investment in your home by failing to address the issue.
