Stabilizes, Seals & Strengthens
Foundation cracks in Rochester homes and basement walls are typically caused by soil shrinkage, soil expansion, or thermal movement. Cracks can cause minor problems, but over time, even minor foundation cracks in your Rochester home can expand and cause a loss of structural stability or, more commonly, cause your basement to leak or flood.
Carbon Fiber Wall Supports
Carbon fiber wall supports are a type of structural reinforcement that can be used to strengthen and stabilize walls that are cracked, bowing, or otherwise compromised. Carbon fiber is a strong, lightweight material that is resistant to corrosion and moisture, making it an ideal choice for wall support applications.
Carbon fiber wall supports are a safe and effective way to strengthen and stabilize walls that are in need of repair. They are a viable option for residential and commercial properties, and they can help to extend the lifespan of your home or business.
Here are some of the benefits of using carbon fiber wall supports:
- Strong and lightweight
- Resistant to corrosion and moisture
- Less intrusive than traditional methods of wall repair
- Requires little to no maintenance
If you are considering repairing a cracked or bowing wall, CFS wall supports may be a good option for you. Contact STORM to learn more.
Help Reduce Radon & Mold
Most basements, because of how they are built, eventually leak. Even if a crack is not currently leaking, water will eventually find it. At Storm Basement Waterproofing in Rochester, leak sealing is a priority! Foundation cracks, if left unfixed, can lead to larger issues. Contact our Rochester foundation repair company to protect your home.
Many homes have radon problems. You can help to minimize the entry of cancer causing radon gas into your basement by sealing cracks and repairing the foundation of your Rochester home.
Any basement environment that has water (moisture) will advance the growth of mold. Mold will continue to grow if a moisture problem is undiscovered or unaddressed.
Mold can cause or worsen conditions such as asthma, hay fever, and or other allergies. The best and most cost-effective strategy for managing the growth of mold and mildew is to prevent the intrusion of water and moisture into the basement by sealing cracks and leaks in your Rochester home’s foundation.
Storm Basement Waterproofing recommends that foundation repairs in Rochester have GrateSump installed with every crack repair. The GrateSump targets and helps to relieve hydrostatic pressure below the basement floor.
