Basement Wall Reinforcement - Carbon Fiber Straps
We recently received a recommendation from a structural engineer that it would be helpful if we had carbon fiber reinforcement straps installed on 2 of our exterior basement walls (this is done from the inside). We have some stair-stepping however our issues are minimal and left untouched would probably lead to more significant problems 7-10 years down the road. We've done some research and from the information appears that if done carefully - and in accordance with manufacturer's instructions - is something we could do.
Does anyone have experiences - good, bad or otherwise with either having contracted this work out or having done it themselves?
