Concrete is often strengthened with rods or fibres incorporated into the structure during the initial construction. This is the most commonly used method. Nowadays, almost all of the cement used in construction is reinforced, but this is nothing new. Even early civilizations used natural fibers to prevent cracks in the masonry.
Over time, some changes may lead to weaknesses that will eventually require reinforcement. Reinforcing a concrete structure will improve the mechanical properties of its component parts, providing greater strength and durability.
What should you do when your structure is showing cracks and crumbling, or when it can no longer bear extra weight or withstand wind gusts? In such situations, it is not possible to add reinforcing rods. The solution lies in carbon fibre reinforcing strips, which are applied to solidify an existing structure. Foundation reinforcement is done with the help of:
- Carbon reinforcement strips
- Carbon slats
- Carbon fibre fabric
Strong and Durable
Concrete is a living material that evolves over time. It sometimes requires support, due to changes in loads or prolonged exposure to an active environment. Structural reinforcement through the use of carbon fibre products is a long-term solution that requires no major work. Five times lighter and ten times stronger than steel, carbon will not deteriorate and is not corrosive.

Epoxy or Polyurethane Injection
Fortunately, 99% of cracks can be repaired quickly and affordably thanks to a few injection materials:
- Epoxy Injection
- Polyurethane Injection
- Self-Compacting Concrete Injection
- Cementitious Grout Injection
Cracks are fractures that are almost always visible and that tend to propagate from floor to ceiling or from inside to outside. Cracks often start at a weak location, such as the corner of a window, a beam joint, a utilities port or a door sill.
Occasionally, a crack will propagate horizontally; this is indicative of a more serious problem, as it may be a sign of structural failure. If you notice this kind of problem, contact us as soon as possible.
