WHAT CAUSES BOWED WALLS?
Hydrostatic pressure is to blame for bowed walls, which are not only unsightly, but also a sign of structural damage. When rain or melted snow is absorbed into the ground around your home, the soil begins to swell and puts pressure on your basement walls. Over time, this pressure causes the walls to bow in and greatly increases the risk of a foundation wall collapse. Simply put, a bowed wall can potentially cause a domino effect that will significantly damage the rest of your home if left untreated.
Common signs of a bowed wall are cracks, which can either be a long horizontal line or in a step pattern. If you notice these types of cracks in your basement walls, it’s important to act quickly to prevent further damage. Fortunately, the team at Kennedy and Sons Structural Solutions provides an ideal option to strengthen and support your bowed walls—Rhino Carbon Fiber® wall supports.

RHINO CARBON FIBER® WALL SUPPORTS
To provide your walls with superior strength and stabilization, our team uses Rhino Carbon Fiber wall supports. Not only is this product strong and durable, it’s also lightweight and easy to install on interior basement walls. This allows for a less intrusive and more cost-efficient installation process. Rhino Carbon Fiber is also non-corrosive, so you don’t have to worry about long-term maintenance.
Before we apply the wall supports, we fill in any existing cracks to ensure that water cannot seep through. We then remove any paint, apply epoxy to the wall, and attach a single layer of the carbon fiber. Rhino Carbon Fiber products are leaders in the industry and tested for strength so you can be assured that your home’s foundation is strong and secure.
