Photo Album: Fixing and Protecting Cracking Foundation Walls with Carbon Fiber Supports in Piketon, OH

Album Description

After living in her house for several years, a homeowner in Piketon, OH, started to notice potential structural issues in her basement. The walls were showing signs of failure in the form of various cracks. Some areas of the walls also appeared to be slightly tilting inward.

Previous attempts to repair the cracks were made both inside the basement and on the home’s exterior, but this patch work will not properly address the problems or prevent them from getting worse.

The homeowner wanted to find the right solution to stabilize all the foundation walls, so she started to research how to best address these issues. She contacted Ohio Basement Authority after learning about our company online. Once one of our inspectors visited to evaluate the condition of the walls, the homeowner was eager for us to install one type of our many reliable foundation repair solutions.

We installed many Carbon Fiber supports throughout the basement to permanently stabilize and protect the walls. These durable supports hold the walls in their current positions and help prevent any further cracking or bowing. Their low profile allows them to be easily concealed by paint, drywall, or other basement finishing materials.

The homeowner now has peace of mind knowing this trustworthy repair has helped her create a safe and structurally stable living environment.
