ONE SOLUTION: CARBON FIBER WALL SUPPORTS
Carbon Fiber Wall Supports link the foundation base with the house framing making it the best system on the market! Typically, foundations are stressed when pressure (hydrostatic, expansive soil and lateral Earth movement) is exerted on the outside of the foundation, causing walls to crack and separate beyond their tensile capacity. If not stopped, or properly reinforced, foundations could collapse.
The carbon fiber is fastened to the sill plate with a galvanized bracket and secured to the foundation floor with a carbon fiber pin. Deterioration does not occur because the carbon fiber system is secured to the foundation wall allowing for an even distribution of outside pressure.

ANOTHER SOLUTION: STABILIZE YOUR FOUNDATION WITH WALL ANCHORS
When it comes to cracked, bowed or buckling walls, many homeowners are surprised to learn that rebuilding the entire wall isn’t necessary. Wall Anchor System restores the structural integrity of your basement walls-saving you time and money while giving you peace of mind.
Rebuilding or replacing a foundation wall involves jacking and temporarily suspending the home, an excavation around the foundation, and possibly pouring a new footing and building the new wall. Our Wall Anchor System uses high strength steel anchoring plates and structural anchor rods to immediately stabilize the wall and counteract pressure being exerted against the wall-without the time, mess and expense of rebuilding the entire wall.
