o When it comes to bowed and cracked Cinder Block and Poured Concrete Foundation Walls, we can help. Using the latest Carbon Fiber/Kevlar Strapping technology, and as a Platinum Certified Fortress Installer, we permanently stabilize your wall in place, with a Lifetime, Transferable, Fortress Stabilization Systems warranty. We will evaluate your specific situation and determine the best solution for you; that’s our Promise.
Carbon Fiber Strapping
This is the most cost effective solution for stabilization. Fortress Stabilization makes, the strongest composite, certified strapping on the market, to ensure your wall never moves again. They are the only ICC certified, building code approved solution (ICC-ES ESR-3815).
Please note the differences on cracking for a Cinder Block wall. Typical symptoms include horizontal cracking along the wall(s), often connected to step down cracks near corner areas. Vertical cracks through the blocks themselves will often show as well.
For Poured Concrete, typical symptoms include significant separation within a crack and moving at different angles, including horizontal.
If you have settlement (ex: step cracking only on either side of a corner only), than other structural repair solutions will be necessary. Please contact us for recommendations to our trusted Structural Engineer and Foundation Contractors that handle tie-backs, underpinning, helical piering, mud jacking etc.
Epoxy Injections for Poured Concrete Cracks
When you need the crack ‘glued’ back together, or held in place to prevent further separation, there are two options:
• Carbon Fiber Stitching: A process that binds the wall back together utilizing their carbon fiber/Kevlar technology. This coincides well with a Polyurethane injection to stop any water leaking that has occurred.
• Epoxy injection: We inject an epoxy that will ‘glue’ the crack back together.
What People are saying...
“Excellent! I hired these guys to handle our crawlspace encapsulation and they not only did a fantastic job during the project, but continue to follow-up after every major rain to ensure all is well. To boot, they came back when my Dehumidifier went south and handled the return and shipment of a new one with the manufacturer. A SOLID company that is worth your consideration.”

“Excellent! Steve found the problem and it is repaired. With all the rain since the repair, we have had no leak. Steve is excellent and very patient to explain the ‘why’. Very conscientious and ethical–need more guys like him! We have a pesky, leaky wall in our basement. Steve repaired the initial leak almost 2 years ago and was perplexed when we called him back for a leak in what seemed to be the same area. Through his patience, we were able to find that a very old (20+ years) repair had given way to new problems.”

"Couldn’t be happier. Steve and his team worked methodically to repair two significant cracks that resulted from a sewer line leak in our basement. The repairs have been in place for almost three years providing a completely sealed basement wall. His knowledge of foundations and creating and maintaining waterproof space is evident in his work.”
