Cracked or Bowing Basement Walls

If you notice a bowed or cracked basement wall, you are probably in need of basement wall repair. A bowed basement wall  is caused by too much outside pressure being pushed against it. When water is absorbed into the ground along the home’s foundation, the soil begins to expand. This expansion causes pressure along the basement wall and begins to push against it. As the soil dries, it then pulls away from the basement wall and creates weak areas along the wall. As a result, the wall cracks and push inward.

To prevent the cracked or bowed from getting worse, it is important to have it inspected by a foundation repair expert when the issue is noticed. Typically, Moisture Loc uses Carbon Fiber Straps for basement wall repair. Carbon Fiber Straps completely stabilize the wall so that no further movement will occur.

Carbon Fiber Straps – Bowed Basement Wall Repair

Carbon Fiber Wall Straps are a great solution for bowed wall repairs. This system is the strongest on the market because it ties to the foundation base and the house framing.  Because the carbon fiber system is secured to the foundation wall, it will not move again. This is because there is an even distribution of outside pressure.

Carbon fiber wall supports are installed from the inside of the basement, so it is less intrusive and less expensive than other repair options. The final finish is smooth, flat, and nearly invisible when painted.

Benefits of Carbon Fiber Straps for Bowed Wall Repair

  • Smooth Finish – Creates a smooth and flat finish that can easily be painted or finished with no loss of space.
  • Quick Installation – Typically takes 1-2 days for complete installation.

  • Strength – Carbon Fiber is the strongest man-made material in the world.  These small fibers are exceptionally strong individually, but when thousands of these fibers are woven and bonded together, they are stronger than steel.

  • Longevity – Once carbon fiber is bonded to the wall with epoxy, the wall can no longer deflect or move.
