A Preferred Solution
There are a number of approaches for foundation repair and fixing cracks found in your foundation walls. These methods include core filling, steel beams and everything from crack fillers to tie-backs – which can work with a varying degree of success.
Standard Water Control’s preferred foundation repair solution is Carbon Fiber Straps from Fortress Stabilization Systems. The only system with ICC building code certification. The Fortress carbon-fiber solution is stronger than traditional steel beams and leaves behind no unsightly obstructions. Many other solutions can render your drain tile system useless by altering or disturbing it. Not so with Carbon Fiber Straps. Once installed, you can remodel your basement with complete peace of mind.
Fortress Stabilization Systems has developed a time-tested and proven method of foundation repair that will restore the integrity and stability of your foundation.
By using carbon-fiber kevlar straps in combination with specifically designed epoxy, foundation repair can be performed effectively and efficiently with minimal disruption and mess. The carbon-fiber solution is immune to rust, corrosion and rot and installs in as little as one day with guaranteed results.
Equally effective on poured or block structures, the Fortress System has been employed to repair and restore structural strength to commercial and residential foundations. Fortress System carbon-fiber straps have been used to repair, stabilize, and reinforce the primary foundation beams of a high-rise Hotel as well as preventing continued cracking and decay of outside and inside walls. If the Fortress System can repair and reinforce a multi-story Hotel, just imagine its effectiveness in a residential or small commercial foundation repair.
What does “ICC certified” mean?
The International Code Council (ICC) was formed in the 1990s by the three major U.S. regional building code agencies and developed the current International Building Code. This code is used to protect public health and building safety throughout the United States and in countries around the world. ICC developed its Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) to certify that products intended to be installed in a home or business are safe and are building code approved. Certification by the ICC-ES means a product and its manufacturing process have been tested, evaluated and regularly audited by ICC to meet or exceed product performance reliability. Fortress obtained ICC-ES certification through a rigorous testing process performed by an ISO 17025 accredited laboratory at the University of Miami, Structures and Materials Laboratory. The ICC-ES certification identifies Fortress Stabilization Systems as a premier building product manufacturer able to produce consistent and reliable product performance.
