Over the years, foundation repair methods have evolved. Steel I-beams were only used to repair bowing or rotating walls. This method is still being used today, but carbon fiber has recently grown in popularity. The use of carbon fiber has also evolved. Years ago, carbon fiber was used to support and strengthen concrete bridges, foundations and other heavy structures. Because carbon fiber has rigid strength, today it is widely used as a structural foundation repair solution in the Bay Area.
Do you have bowing or cracking walls? You may need carbon fiber repair. Look around your basement for shifting or moving walls. These signs could indicate serious structural damage that need immediate repairs. Fortunately, Bay Area Underpinning offers the perfect solution: carbon fiber repair. We'll work with you to find the best repair solution to eliminate settlement under and around your foundation. Most settlement is caused by hydrostatic pressure in the soil that increases when soil absorbs too much water.
