Bowing walls, sagging floors, sinking slabs, and large cracks can be a serious problem for the foundation of your home. Concrete basement crack repair is best left for professionals. Green Mountain Basement Solutions offers unique solutions for repairing cement block and poured concrete foundations in Vermont.
For owners interested in straightening, we use “The Force” wall bracing to to straighten the wall. “The Force” is a spring loaded wall brace that constantly applies over 1000 lbs of force to the wall, straightening it over time. Other braces require re-torqueing over time to maintain pressure. Once the wall is straight, we apply fiber lock to hold it in place permanently and the homeowner can choose to take the bracing down.
In some instances, we use “Grip Tite” foundation systems to anchor your foundation in place.
If there is less than an inch of deflection, or cost is a concern, we can apply the fiber lock carbon fiber strips to stabilize the wall. Carbon fiber has 7-10x the tensile strength of steel and will prevent any bowing in the future.
Our concrete & foundation crack repairs are done with the longevity in mind. We want your home to be free of cracks & moisture just as much as you do. Don’t put off getting a small crack fixed. Cracks in concrete walls grow larger over time, and can eventually jeapordize the structual integrity of the foundation.
