You probably also have a super long list of repair options for all of those potential problems. But, if you’re like me, your budget isn’t nearly as long as either of these lists, so you find yourself wondering how to pay for your repairs. You may have also realized that there are several Do-It-Yourself options that allow you to take matters into your own hands, allowing you to save money right off the top. But are all of those DIY options as reliable as hiring an expert? How do you know if your own DIY skills are adequate enough to perform the task at hand? What if you start a project, only to realize that you’re in over your head, forcing you to call a contractor anyway? Luckily, in the chaos of all of these scary questions, one solid answer emerges. And while it’s not applicable for every issue you’ll face with your home, DIY carbon fiber kits give you the power to structurally reinforce your own home in a matter of hours.

So what does it take to install a DIY carbon fiber kit? 7 Simple Steps:

1.  Grind off all paint and delaminated concrete.
(You can rent a grinder from most hardware stores if you don’t have one)
2.  Vacuum or brush away all dust.
3.  Wipe the wall with acetone.
4.  Prime the wall with StrongHold™ epoxy.
5.  Saturate both sides of the carbon fiber fabric.
6.  Press the carbon fiber fabric against the wall.
7.  Apply another layer of epoxy. 

That’s it! After installing your StrongHold™ kit, you can paint right over it to minimize the appearance of repair. If you decide to paint your wall, do so while the epoxy is still thumbprint tacky (about an hour after installation). If the system has already cured and you want to paint it, lightly sand the surface to abrade it before painting.
