Photo Album: Foundation Stabilization in Columbia MD
Basement Systems USA was referred to this customer by his Structural Engineer for the repair of his block foundation. There was a horizontal crack that ran about 20ft with an opening of 3/8 of an inch in the worst spot. Finding this foundation issue put a big halt to his finishing plans, but he knew if he wanted to proceed with his dream basement, the foundation would first need to be repaired.
To stabilize this foundation, we came out and installed our CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcing System. This system consisted of 13 CarbonArmor straps and 11 Armor Locks. This system will permanently stabilize your home's foundation and comes with a 25year warranty against any manufacturer defects and against any further bowing. The CarboArmor system is also none invasive so now the customer can complete the finishing of his basement without any eyesores or obstacles.
This block foundation had a major horizontal crack in its foundation that was holding the customer up from finishing his basement
The straps are permanently adhered to the block foundation using a high-strength epoxy.
It may not look like it, but these CarbonArmor straps are 10times stronger than steel.
