Carbon Fiber Stitching

Carbon Fiber Stitching for Concrete Floor Cracks in Ottawa, Nepean, Orleans

Concrete floor crack

Repairing nonstructural cracks in your concrete floor, like this one, can prevent worse problems and provide peace of mind.

If you have cracks in your concrete floor or slab that need repair, Atlantic Basement Systems can provide a dependable, cost-effective solution for your concrete problems. Carbon fiber stitching prevents slab movement from the inside of your foundation, without the need for excavation.

Carbon fiber is the strongest man-made material in the world and has been used in space shuttles, airplanes, bridges, motorcycle helmets and bullet-proof vests. When used for foundation repair, carbon fiber stops concrete movement and improves the stability of the foundation.

We can inspect your concrete and determine if carbon fiber stitching is the right solution for your home. Call us at 1-613-706-0665 or click below to request your free on-site estimate!

Causes of concrete floor cracks

Concrete shrinks as it cures, so cracks in concrete floors are common. Most floor cracks are cosmetic and simple repairs can often eliminate the need for expensive repairs. It's important to be able to recognize small problems, or have the problem inspected by a professional if you aren't sure.  If the floor cracks are parallel to the wall and footings, floor cracks align with wall cracks or if there's displacement at the cracks; a structural problem could be to blame.

Concrete stitching process

To repair your concrete slab, we cut stitches into the cracked concrete, drop carbon fiber laminates into the cuts and adhere with low viscosity polyurea. This concrete repair method is stronger, faster and more cost-effective than the more traditional embedment of rebar dowels into the concrete.

Advantages of using carbon fiber stitching for concrete floors:

  • No exterior excavation required
  • Stronger than rebar dowels
  • Minimal noise and disruption
  • Faster, affordable repair option

If your foundation requires additional reinforcement, we offer a variety of foundation underpinning solutions to strengthen your foundation. To help you decide on the best solution for your home, we provide no-obligation inspections and free written estimates in Ottawa and throughout Ontario. Contact us today to schedule yours!
