We’ve seen first-hand fiberglass wrap repairs that have not stood the test of time when it comes to underwater/marine pile repair. Generally, fiberglass is not as strong or durable as carbon fiber and can crack or start to peel away from the pile under harsh marine conditions. CarboShield shells are designed to withstand decades of wear and tear. What’s more, most fiberglass pile repair solutions on the market require divers for installation, and the wrapping can become complex, messy and prone to human error. CarboShield shells are installed entirely above water, without the need for divers or cofferdams.
