Crawl Space Foundation Repair
Claycor has repaired hundreds of crawl spaces throughout
the lowcountry, from moisture damage to termite damage.
We have successfully jacked and leveled heavy, three-story
houses in Charleston and replaced thousands of feet of sill
and floor joists.
Whether your house is suffering from termite damage,
foundation settling, or moisture damage, Claycor can repair
your structure and install dehumidifiers to prevent floor
settling and further damage.

HJ3 Composite Systems is the finest repair option available on the market today. It offers:
- 5 to 10 times more strength than steel
- Weight of 4 ounces per square foot
- Corrosion resistance
- Chemical resistance (acidic & alkali environments)
- Minimimal downtime (improvement of 30% to 40% over other options)
- Cost savings over alternative repairs or replacement!
Walls & Parapets: HJ3 Composite Systems can be used to strengthen existing concrete and masonry walls that lack the necessary flexural strength, shear strength and ductility to withstand seismic forces caused by an earthquake. The materials can also be used to repair walls weakened by the corrosion of existing steel reinforcement.
How it Works: HJ3 offers 150,000 psi tensile strength in a package that
is 1/16th-inch thick and weighs less than 4 ounces per square foot. When
bonded to the surface of the wall, the material resists flexural and shear
forces caused by earthquakes, wind loads, or the movement of the building.
For masonry walls, the material panelizes the masonry blocks causing a
weak and brittle substrate to be strong and ductile.
Columns: In addition to steel tanks, HJ3 Composite Systems can be wrapped around the perimeter of a damaged concrete column to return the column to its original strength. The carbon or glass fabric can also be wrapped around the column to allow the column to resist seismic or blast forces.
How it Works: HJ3 provide exceptional tensile strength that can be used to
confine columns allowing the column to resist flexural and shear forces that
would normally cause the column to crack or fail. The HJ3 material holds the
column together and protects the column from further corrosion.
Beams: HJ3 Composite Systems can be used to strengthen existing concrete beams and slabs as well as steel beams. Once saturated the carbon fabric or pre-cured carbon laminates are bonded to the concrete or steel substrate. HJ3 Composite Systems replace the use of steel strengthening systems that require bolting or welding creating significant cost savings and safety benefits.
How it Works: HJ3 are designed to provide external tensile strengthening to
resist flexural loads placed on the beam or slab. As the loads cause the beam or
slab to deflect, the fibers in the HJ3's tension to resist those loads and strain to
