There are many reasons why a concrete foundation wall will crack, some of the most common reasons are:
Epoxies alone cannot guarantee that the further movement of the wall is arrested. The crack may recur in the same area without further stabilization.
Fortress Stabilization Systems has researched, developed and patented a unique carbon-fiber countersunk staple that will help stabilize the wall in all 6 directions of movement. By applying the carbon-fiber countersunk staples across the face of the crack, the load is distributed away from the glue line to a portion of the foundation wall that is not cracked, preventing fatigue and re-cracking at the injection glue line.
Every crack injection repair is improved by reinforcement. With the carbon-fiber countersunk staples installed, you can be confident that the crack will not reoccur, the repair will last the life of your Southern Ontario home and the wall is permanently stabilized in the area of the crack.
Carbon-fiber has a tensile strength 10 times stronger than steel and has been proven to be a safer and more effective product for structural reinforcement. The Fortress carbon-fiber countersunk staples, when installed, lay flat against the wall, leaving the wall with no obstruction and ready to paint. Fortress carbon-fiber staples will not rust or deteriorate.
