This step can include the crack injection installation to add more strength to the foundation wall. First, we begin by marking the crack at the top, middle, and bottom of the wall. We proceed to remove 14″ of concrete from the center of the crack and grind where the foundation crack repair material will be installed to achieve a bare foundation.
We then fill the crack with the fast-curing epoxy before we begin to mount the carbon fibre. We then measure the height of the foundation wall from the sill plate to the footer and add 6″.
Next, we apply a thin layer of epoxy to the foundation wall working from the top to the bottom, covering the entire surface.
Finally, we lay the carbon fibre crack repair over the epoxy, ensuring the carbon fibre is completely covered. Using a squeegee, we spread the epoxy for a clean and secure installation.
Carbon fibre wall supports, as well as epoxy crack injections, are a great solution for fixing foundation cracks. When going through the trouble and expense of excavating the side of your house’s foundation, do it right the first time.
