Carbon Fiber Wall Crack Repair
Our team uses a patented carbon fiber wall crack repair process to seal and strengthen the areas where your wall has cracked. The process involves placing a carbon fiber strip directly over the crack and applying a patented epoxy sealant to the area. Once dry, the carbon fiber both acts as a support for any forces trying to make the crack larger and stops water from entering your basement.
