The only Non-Corrosive Locking & Alignment System Available.
CarbonLoc is made of the same Polycarbonite material as bulletproof glass, offering more Tensile, Sheer and Flexular strength over the standard metal system. Also, it will never rust, corrode, or weaken even after years of exposure to moisture.
The CarbonLoc Foundation repair is done in several phases. Once the Field Technician's repair design is reviewed, installation points are determined surrounding the structure. After the area is cleared of all shrubs and plants, tarps are laid down to protect the surrounding lawn. A small hole is dug where the new piers will be installed.
The supporting piers are pressed into the ground, stacking on top of each other, until they have reached stable soils. Subsequent sections are hydraulically driven deeper to load bearing strata directly below your home's foundation. The stacked piers are held in place by the patented CarbonLoc TM system. Then, a solid concrete block is set on the top of piers.
Using hydraulic jacks, the interior floor levels are raised to their natural position. The team moves slowly and systematically to ensure a gentle and uniform lift. The Field Superintendent monitors the lift of the structure to ensure the reaction of the structure and interior elevation readings are accurate and do not cause undo strain on the structure. The concrete pilings are locked and aligned with our unique CarbonLoc system, eliminating the possibility of lateral movement.
Once the structure has been lifted to its natural position, concrete cylinders replace the hydraulic jacks to provide permanent support to the structure. Once the excavated area is filled in, any debris resulting from the repair process will be removed. The foundation is now incredibly secure thanks to the patented CarbonLoc TM system while providing a solution that has a lifetime guarantee by G.L. Hunt Company!
