Bowing, bulging, and rotated walls are a scary thing to have happen to your home, but when your home has foundation damage, these things do happen. But instead of worrying about your home, why not have All Aspects Waterproofing fix the problem and installing carbon fiber straps in your home? Let’s take a look at what carbon fiber straps are and how they can benefit your home.
What are Carbon Fiber Straps?
Carbon fiber straps are made of a durable carbon fiber that is used to reinforce the corner or wall of a structure. The weight of your home could be causing your walls to bow, bulge, or rotate inward. Carbon fiber straps are often used in combination to wall pins, steel I pins, and other foundation repair applications in order to fix your home. Carbon fiber straps are the only system that will repair and reinforce the corners of your home to prevent future cracks and strengthen the wall itself.
Benefits of Using Carbon Fiber Straps
The installation of carbon fiber straps is actually quite simple when they are done by an expert hand. The area of the wall where the strap will go is ground down to a flat surface and a bed of high-strength epoxy is applied before it is embedded into the wall and a steel angle is bolted to the top. Depending on the size of the problem, carbon fiber straps could be applied in a day or two by the professionals at All Aspects Waterproofing.
Carbon fiber is a super strong material. This material is often used in the construction of commercial aircraft as well as building materials. These fibers do not break or stretch, making it the perfect foundation repair tool for a permanent wall repair.
This material is perfect for being placed inside your home due to its low visibility. Unlike other material, carbon fiber straps are not extremely visible. When the carbon fiber strap is applied to the wall, you may see a small bump that is the fraction of an inch thick. These strips are easily painted over and a normal stud wall can be constructed over this repair, making it disappear completely.
Once this strap is applied to your wall, there are no further steps required for these straps. When it is finished, you may paint it is you like or just leave it on the wall to continue its repair work for years to come without any attention.
Carbon fiber straps are perfect for busy homeowners who need their foundation fixed but do not want any more distractions. For more information on All Aspects Waterproofing fixing your foundation, call us today!
