Improve Your Home’s Value & Integrity

Standard Water uses cutting-edge carbon-fiber technology developed by Fortress Stabilization Systems to stabilize bowed basement walls and when combined with our state-of-the-art draintile system will eliminate any further movement, cracking and leaking.

Using carbon-fiber kevlar sheet straps in combination with specifically designed epoxies, bowed basement walls are stabilized and arrested with little to no obtrusiveness. The repaired bowed basement wall can then be painted creating an almost invisible repair and increasing the resale value of your home all without disturbing your landscaping.

Foundation repair begins with the homeowner moving any obstructions away from the wall or walls to be repaired.

Anything left in the basement is then covered with plastic. During installation of the foundation repair system, technicians from Standard Water Control will make sure your wall is properly prepared to receive the epoxy and carbon-fiber application by clearing away any paint, dirt or other coatings. The carbon-fiber grid straps are applied to the epoxy and pressed in to ensure the strap is flat to the wall. Epoxy is liberally applied to the top surface of the straps and spread evenly to ensure the straps are completely encapsulated per manufacturer’s specs. Cracks are filled to prevent any more movement.

Using Carbon Fiber to repair cracks in concrete and arrest shifting walls is a proven application and technology that works as well in your home as in commercial buildings, bridges, mines, road surfaces, and in any other applications where reinforcement and reparation are need.

Repairing Cracks in Poured Basement Walls

Foundation repair begins with the homeowner moving any obstructions away from the wall or walls to be repaired.

When it comes to repairing a crack in a poured foundation wall, it is not sufficient to simply fill the crack. You have to consider the nature of the crack and the desired result. Are you trying to prevent water leakage or restore the structural integrity?

First the Standard Water crew identifies the severity of the crack and chooses the appropriate material for repairing it; urethane for keeping water out or epoxy for structural issues. Next the crew grinds the wall down to ensure epoxy adheres properly. Holes are drilled into the crack to allow for the insertion of ports to receive the repair material. Epoxy is then spread across the area to be repaired so no repair material sprays out of the crack when it is injected under pressure to seal off the crack.
