Foundation Repair in Greater Evansville
The Reinforcer composite system is a Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) made of carbon fibers in an epoxy resin martix specifically designed for strengthening concrete and masonry structures.
How does The Reinforcer work to keep basement walls from bowing?
When The Reinforcer is applied to foundation walls, it counteracts further outside pressure on the wall, taking the tension force (or tensile load) that the wall cannot.
For every increase in pressure on the wall, The Reinforcer supplies an equal and opposite resistant force making the wall stronger. It helps eliminate expanding, shifting, cracking, and bowing.
Benefits of The Reinforcer
NO HEAVY EQUIPMENT
The Reinforcer is a patented state-of-the-art system developed by professional engineers. A combination of space-age polymers and carbon fibers have been processed into a material that is virtually impossible to stretch. It is a perfect material to use on basement foundation walls to resist outside pressure.
NO MESSY CONCRETE
You no longer need invasive measures (such as breaking through concrete floors or making structural changes to floor joists) to stabilize foundation walls. The Reinforcer is simply applied directly to existing walls. You no longer have to worry about the look of boxy, ugly steel columns, which can intrude into your basement space.
NO INVASIVE MEASURES
The Reinforcer has a tensile strength that has proven to be eight to ten times stronger than steel and works on concrete block or poured concrete to secure and stabilize cracking, bowing or buckling foundation walls.
