Then an epoxy is applied to the foundation and the carbon fiber is embedded to form a permanent repair. Keep in mind though that this repair can only be done if the wall has moved 2 inches or less. Determining the bow to the wall, how serious it is, and grinding down the wall to apply the carbon fiber in the correct location is a specialized skill usually best handled by a professional.
