Carbon Fiber Wall Crack Repair
Our team uses a patented carbon fiber wall crack repair process to seal and strengthen the areas where your wall has cracked. The process involves placing a carbon fiber strip directly over the crack and applying a patented epoxy sealant to the area. Once dry, the carbon fiber both acts as a support for any forces trying to make the crack larger and stops water from entering your basement.
Sometimes wall cracks can appear as a sign of foundation settlement. Our team can install foundation piers in your home to stop any foundation settlement that is occurring and raise your home back to the proper level. Our foundation piers are driven deep into the ground to find stronger support material for the foundation of your home.
