This Winston Salem, NC home’s exterior basement walls had major structural concerns. Horizontal, vertical and stair-step cracks were visible throughout all of the cinder block basement walls.
Tar Heel Basement Systems installed (12) Carbon Fiber Straps. Carbon Armor is a very high tensile strength material that is almost impossible to stretch. The Carbon Fiber system is the only fabric carbon fiber product to code. Since carbon armor installations don’t require any outside digging, they are viable when there is limited access on the exterior of the home. Carbon Fiber’s low-profile allows for easy installation access behind plumbing lines and electrical conduit. The system was easily concealed with plastic paneling. It is fastened to the basement walls and provides a clean, bright look while preventing water vapor from permeating your walls.
Now this Winston Salem, NC homeowner can rest assured that her home’s structure is stable and safe, and her basement received a cosmetic lift thanks to Tar Heel Basement Systems!
