Carbon Fiber Foundation Repair
WHAT IS CARBON FIBER?
Carbon fiber is the strongest, man-made material in the world. It is incredibly lightweight and will not stretch. It can be woven into fabric sheets or melted down and molded into various shapes to create hundreds of different products. It is a material made up of small fibers of carbon. These small fibers were found to be exceptionally strong individually, but when thousands of these fibers are woven and bonded together, they are stronger than steel.
The process to make carbon fiber is complicated and was originally very expensive. Since it was so expensive, carbon fiber was only reserved for critical applications like space shuttles, airplane wings, and bridge repairs. Today, mass production of carbon fiber has made it more accessible and affordable to use in every day applications. Due to its outstanding performance and popularity, carbon fiber is now used in other products such as motorcycle helmets, bullet-proof vests, and golf clubs just to name a few.
Finally, carbon fiber is affordable to use in residential foundation repair applications. Once carbon fiber is bonded to the wall with epoxy, the wall can no longer deflect or move. Whencarbon fiber is applied, it actually makes the wall stronger than it was before. Carbon fiber applications are commonly used prior to basement remodeling projects so that homeowners can remodel with the assurance that their walls are solid and are as strong as they can be.
