Carbon Fiber for Bowed Foundation Wall Repair



Cinder block foundations are prone to inward bowing if not constructed properly.

Bowing Foundation Wall Repair: Carbon fiber sheets provide the necessary reinforcement to stabilize a shifting a retaining wall. The carbon fiber permanently binds to the concrete with epoxy, preventing further movement. The sheets are less then 1/8" thick and can be pained over after installation, minimizing any impact on living space.

Other carbon fiber applications include:

  • Concrete Foundation Cracks: In the past, a steel plate was installed over a foundation crack to provide a structural connection. Today carbon fiber sheets are used to bind fragmented foundations together.
  • Strengthening Concrete Columns: Existing concrete structures sometimes need extra tensile reinforcement to meet today's codes. In come cases, earthquake reinforcement is required to meet code.
