This foundation has some serious issues. One wall is bowed with a horizontal crack and stair step crack and another wall has stair step cracking. ITG knew the Carbon Fiber Strips would help solve this foundation issue.

Clarence and Heidi A. were concerned about a large horizontal crack that developed in their basement wall. The crack spread from one corner of the room to the other and it seemed as if the wall was bellying in at the middle. Clarence and Heidi decided to call in some foundation professionals to look at the wall. I'm The Guy Basement Systems representative Ethan Hummel answered the call.
Ethan found their wall to be failing due to outside soil pressures created from moisture in the ground. The crack was observed to be in the beginning stages of separation which allowed Ethan to propose a very sleek and cost-effective way of permanently bracing the wall. Ethan presented Carbon Armor, a full wall bracing product that structurally bonds concrete walls together, resisting the forces that were causing the bow.
The production crew led by Denny Wertz were able to apply the Carbon Armor strips in just a couple of hours versus rebuilding the entire wall which would have taken days to complete and cost thousands of dollars more in comparison.
Clarence and Heidi are enjoying their basement again without any concern of a failing foundation.
