Wall Reinforcement in the Greater Cincinnati Area

Wall Reinforcement in the Greater Cincinnati Area

Clay soil, for example, expands when it absorbs too much liquid. This expansion forces your foundation or basement walls to move inward, creating a bulge or slope. Upon drying up and returning to its original form, the soil leaves a gap between the wall and the ground – a spot too soft to support your foundation or basement. It is easy to spot a weakened wall, but difficult to repair if you are not equipped with the right tools for the job. That is why we, at Healthy Basement Concepts, offer our wall reinforcement system – a sure way to protect, secure, and stabilize tilting walls.

Wall Reinforcement Explained

Wall reinforcement is just one of the many approaches we use when doing foundation repairs. This system is a carbon fiber system made from Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (10x stronger than steel) and its sole purpose is to reinforce the walls from the inside. In addition to being unsightly, bowing and tilting walls are downright dangerous. Without proper repair, the wall can collapse and bring all sorts of foreign debris inside your home. By placing this system on your walls, you can avoid wall damages and other structural mishaps associated with the changing soil texture.

Bowing or tilting of foundation walls is typically caused by the texture of the soil. Located beneath your home, these walls are perpetually surrounded by soil and they are the first to be affected whenever the ground is struck by disasters such as minor quakes, floods, and shifting soils.
