What Do Carbon Fiber Strips Do?

Carbon Fiber IllustrationLike Wall Anchors, Carbon Fiber Strips also help support cracked or bowed walls.

They are designed to work on both poured concrete and block walls. They can be installed on basement or crawl space walls.

Olshan’s Carbon Fiber Wall Support System is both durable and minimally invasive.

Since the structural repair alone does not require excavation, it is quick to install and less disruptive to the home’s landscaping.

Available Olshan Carbon Fiber Systems can be configured to the foundation base and house framing, offering long-lasting defense against the effects of hydrostatic pressure.
