Carbon fiber reinforcement is an affordable alternative to excavating or replacing cracked concrete structures. That’s why we recommend it whenever possible. To reinforce the integrity of foundations, walls, parking decks, and the like, we use carbon fiber reinforcing straps. Made of a stiff, inelastic carbon-fiber mesh, these straps are low-cost, permanent, and amazingly strong – they can resist a much higher tension load than steel. We epoxy the straps to the wall from floor to ceiling to shore up bowed walls. The wall can’t bow out any further because it would mean pulling apart the carbon fiber – which can’t happen under soil pressure loads.
