- Addressing foundation problems as they arise will often prevent unnecessary, expensive repairs in the future. Potential signs for foundation stress include, but are not limited to:
- Foundation cracks
- Ceiling cracks or sunken floors
- Exterior wall cracks
- Chimney cracks
- Windows and doors that are difficult to shut
- “Shrink-swell” problems in surrounding homes

Basement Wall Repair
Foundation damage can cause basement walls to become bowed, cracked or unsightly. Horizontal cracks in basement walls and bowing basement walls are long-term results of poor soils underneath the foundation systems. Many homeowners would be surprised to learn the enormous amount of force supports by a typical basement wall: there can be as much as 2600 pounds of pressure per linear foot in sandy, water-soaked soil (assuming an eight foot wall). Fortunately for homeowners, Abby Construction uses the StrongHold carbon fiber repair system solution.
StrongHold Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers (CFRP’s) provide the required additional tensile force needed to fully develop the compressive strength and create a “balanced” situation within the wall to prevent further bowing and cracking.
