Basement Masters Waterproofing is a proud partner of Emecole and Fortress Stabilization Systems who have introduced Carbon Fiber / Kevlar technology in the form of Carbon Fiber / Kevlar Grid straps. This is the next greatest advancement in permanent foundation wall repair stabilization. The hybrid grid strap system is comprised of high tensile strength carbon fibers woven together by Kevlar strands.
Carbon Fiber / Kevlar grid straps are designed for stabilizing both poured concrete and block walls. Due to the extremely high strength-to-weight ratio, carbon fiber reinforcement is the repair material of choice for bowed basement walls, bridge columns, and concrete beams to restore and maintain structural integrity. All the professionals at Basement Masters Waterproofing are trained in how to install this material and are ready to do carbon fiber wall repair in your Virginia home.
Carbon fiber is now a proven popular alternative to steel for reinforcing structural substrates in residential and commercial applications. Carbon fiber is highly effective at adding tensile strength to concrete. It is also superior to steel since it is stronger, stiffer, and non-corrosive. There is no time limit on when this can be installed, as it can be added to the surface of a concrete structure at any time to stop bowing walls and cracking walls. This allows limitless applications for new construction, repair, retrofit, and seismic upgrades.
The grid lies flat against the wall and when painted over is hardly noticeable. We guarantee the wall will never bow or crack again. Carbon fiber / Kevlar 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. Additionally, unlike steel bracing, carbon fiber does not rust! Carbon fiber straps can be covered over with paints or other coatings to further enhance the look of the finished repair so that your home looks beautiful for years to come.
These hi-tech Carbon Fiber/Kevlar grid will permanently repair cracked or moving foundations without steel I-beams or tie-backs, leaving your walls with no unsightly obstructions and ready to paint. The repair is permanent and guaranteed for the life of the home. Contact the carbon fiber experts at Basement Masters Waterproofing today to get started on your carbon fiber repair.
