The foundation of residential and commercial buildings can be subject to significant outside pressures which over time can cause vertical as well as horizontal cracks. At the same time, a foundation’s walls and floors can also be affected by these pressure and seasonal changes in the surrounding soil. As time goes on, even a seemingly minor defect can develop into a major problem.
Hydroscience Group has specialists on staff that is well versed in how to identify and repair a wide range of foundation defects. This includes our innovative crack repair system, which has been meticulously engineered and manufactured by Rhino Carbon Fiber © Products.
This foundation repair strategy can effectively address cracks by installing durable carbon fiber straps to both structurally repair a crack as well as prevent water intrusion. There have also been instances where our techniques were able to address things like bowing wall was displacing sill plate due to static pressure which also affected the foundation footings which will then stabilize the wall.
With the proper installation, these carbon fiber straps carry a 25 yr warranty. This gives you a very cost-effective way to preserve and repair a previously compromised foundation, wall, or floor.
