Straighten Your Walls with Wall Reinforcement
If you notice bowing or buckling walls in your basement, your home’s value and structural integrity may be in jeopardy. Unfortunately, the problem will continue to get worse over time unless there is a proper solution put in place.
At MidAmerica Basement Systems, we can install a wall reinforcing system to prevent further bowing and potentially straighten your walls back to their original position. We use the CarbonArmor® System to reinforce your failing walls and restore your home’s structural stability.

What Causes Walls to Fail?
The soils surrounding your foundation walls can put an immense amount of pressure on your walls as they expand or shift. This is typically known as hydrostatic pressure, where the moisture content in the soil causes them to expand and press up against your foundation walls and can cause them to bow, buckle, or crack. Our wall reinforcement system is designed to withstand the pressure from the soils to prevent further wall damage.
Benefits of the CarbonArmor® Wall Reinforcing System
At MidAmerica, we use the CarbonArmor® Wall Reinforcing System for its long-term durability and low-profile design. It consists of carbon fiber straps and an epoxy resin that are attached to your failing wall to permanently halt any further movement and reinforce the wall’s strength. The combination of our high-strength epoxy resin and carbon fiber strap material is proven to be stronger than steel.
Our crew will first prepare the wall and ensure it’s clean before the straps are installed. Depending on your wall’s condition, we will determine how many straps are required to give it the support it needs. The straps will be adjusted to the appropriate height for your walls and covered in a high-strength epoxy resin to ensure they’re secured in place. Once installation is complete, the project can easily be covered with paint or other wall coverings to hide the straps.
