When the soil surrounding your foundation becomes moist, it expands and exerts a great deal of hydrostatic pressure.
This constant pressure can erode mortar and allow the concrete blocks of your home’s foundation to slowly displace, resulting in cracked foundations that allow moisture leaks.
Helitech’s Carbonbond Carbon Fiber Reinforcement System is a patented technology that integrates the advancements made in aerospace to produce solutions for your home. In particular, structural reinforcement of concrete and block basement walls.
The Carbon Fiber Reinforcement System is designed to be so strong, so safe, and so economical, that no other method can compete.
Strength of Carbon Fiber
No excavating or drilling as the Carbonbond Carbon Fiber system installs easily without need for heavy or noisy equipment.
Compared to steel, Carbon Fiber is over 10 times stronger, much thinner (only one-tenth of an inch), and 40 times lighter.
Carbon Fiber repairs are completely maintenance free because they never will corrode like steel.
With the ease of installation, its incredible strength, and the durability of Carbon Fiber, it’s easy to see that no other choice makes sense.
Carbon Fiber Installation
A certified technician should determine whether this is truly the best option for leaning walls. You can choose to waterproof the interior of the cracks before the reinforcers are installed.
The installation itself is exceedingly simple. The cracked surface is prepared; adhesive is added, and the carbon fiber is firmly pressed against the wall. Either woven or laminate carbon fiber can be used, and the walls can be cleaned and painted following installation. If done properly, there will be no visible changes to your home apart from the cessation of the wall bowing.
Carbonbond can be installed in a simple, 4-step process:
Inject polyurethane into the crack to stop water leakage
Prepare surface and apply primer
Bond carbon fiber to the surface to cover the crack
Apply final coat of epoxy

I had Helitech come out to my house a few weeks ago and they gave me a bid on some cracks, foundation repairs, and piers. He was very honest in what needed to be done. I had other foundation companies give me bids also which were very excessive and expensive. If you’re looking for someone you can trust and rely on give Helitech a call!!!
