Providing repairs for walls is our specialty. Carolina Foundation Solutions can provide the right solution and system for existing walls that are in need of additional reinforcement and/or lateral support.

Wall Reinforcement

The use of carbon fiber reinforcement has proven to be one of the most successful and effective methods of providing reinforcement for existing walls, as well as many other structural components. Carolina Foundation Solutions is trained and certified in the installation of many top of the line carbon fiber reinforcement products. From residential dwellings, to commercial buildings, to industrial facilities, to pipelines, to roadways and bridges; the uses and applications of carbon fiber reinforcement is limitless. The repairs and solutions that Carolina Foundation Solutions has effectively performed using the carbon fiber reinforcement materials ranges from the installation of carbon fiber / Kevlar grid reinforcement straps as a means of providing reinforcement and repair to walls which were bowing, to installing carbon fiber corner strap kits as a means of providing reinforcement to corners of walls which are shifting, to the installation of carbon fiber reinforcement sheets and fabrics as a means of providing repairs to cracked and damaged structural concrete columns.

Wall Anchoring

For failing walls, new walls that are to be constructed, or simply existing walls in need of additional lateral support, Carolina Foundation Solutions uses the CHANCE Helical Tieback Anchors as a means of providing a reliable and effective solution. The helical anchors can be installed quickly and efficiently using small equipment. The wall anchors are driven into the adjacent soils, providing immediate and accurate results where lateral support is needed. The anchors can then be immediately tensioned and tested without the need for cure time

Carbon Fiber Reinforcement

The advancement in technologies and development of carbon fiber products has led to many successful and unique uses and applications. Studies over the past 20 years have confirmed that carbon fiber is an extremely strong, durable, and safe material. Carbon fiber will not rust, deteriorate, stretch, creep, or bend. As a result if is now a proven popular alternative to steel for purposes of providing reinforcement. In fact, it is superior to steel since it is stronger, stiffer, lighter, and non-corrosive. Due to the high strength to weight ratio, the corrosion resistant properties, and cost effectiveness, the installation of carbon fiber reinforcement systems has been proven to be the perfect solution for repairs throughout the construction industry.
