Block foundation and bowed wall repair contractor.
For block walls we have a product called Edge Guard. 


This is a drainage mat moisture control system for a foundation that has leaky walls. This product works in conjunction with interior drain tile and a sump pump.

After we dig the trench for the drain tile, the Edge Guard is placed on top of the footing.  It protrudes above the floor level. This allows water that runs down the wall to enter into it and carry it to the drain tile under the floor. This is better because there is no other system that allows this to be done.

Block walls are also prone to bow inward and collapse for this we use Carbon Fiber / Kevlar Grid Straps that are designed for stabilizing both poured concrete and block walls. Due to the extreme high strength to weight ratio, carbon fiber reinforcement is the repair material of choice for bowed basement walls, bridge columns, and concrete beams to restore and maintain structural integrity.

Carbon fiber is a proven alternative to steel for reinforcing structural substrates in residential and commercial applications. Carbon fiber is highly effective at adding tensile strength to concrete. It is superior to steel since it is stronger, lighter weight and non-corrosive. It also can be bonded to the surface of a concrete structure at any time to stop bowing and cracking. This allows limitless applications for new construction and repairs.
