Reinforcing a Failing Foundation
Are your basement walls cracking, buckling or beginning to bow? If your basement walls are bowing inward, that is a sign that the integrity of the building is in trouble. This can happen when hydrostatic pressure outside exceeds the strength of the wall. In order to stop this issue from getting worse, we may recommend carbon fiber reinforcement to stabilize the foundation wall.
Alliance Restoration offers free bowing wall and foundation repair consultations to homeowners and business owners in Arlington Heights, Barrington, Highland Park, Lake Forest, Mount Prospect, Mundelein, Vernon Hills, Lake Zurich, Buffalo Grove, Lincolnshire, Schaumburg, Lake in the Hills, Crystal Lake, Wonder Lake and more.
Thin As a Dime & Ten Times Stronger Than Steel
To see if you need a carbon fiber reinforcement system, a Project Manager will perform an inspection of your structure. The Project Manager will be looking for the cause of the bowing walls to find the best course of action. Our end goal in these situations is always to secure the foundation and prevent any further wall decay. If the wall isn't bowing more than 2", we often suggest The Reinforcer carbon fiber reinforcement system as the solution. The Reinforcer is a carbon fiber reinforcement strap that is 4" wide, .045" thick and 10X stronger than steel! We secure these carbon fiber straps to the wall using epoxy, thus forming a strong bond with the wall. Now as the pressure on the wall persists, The Reinforcer will provide an equal and opposite force from inside. The Reinforcer is easy to paint over and doesn't stick out like, making it easy to conceal and work around.
Our carbon fiber reinforcement services include a great warranty that you can trust. For more information on this service or to schedule your FREE inspection, please call 1-(815)-477-0029 or complete our quick estimate form.
