What is Carbon Fiber and How Does it Work?
Carbon fiber strips are an effective foundation repair method used to support and strengthen your basement walls. Carbon fiber installation requires a skilled, trained professional that can accurately measure and install your carbon fiber. The installation process is relatively simple, yet effective. First, the surface is prepped and primed. Second, a mixture is applied to the carbon fiber. Next, carbon fiber is placed over the affected crack. Finally, the project is complete. The surface can be painted.
