The paper analyzes the development process and advantages of composite materials and finds that the use of composite materials in building reinforcement projects will have good application results. Then through experimental research, the application effects of glass fiber composite materials, carbon fiber composite materials and carbon fiber/glass fiber composite materials in building reinforcement engineering are analyzed. The experimental results show that: carbon fiber/glass fiber composite materials have better reinforcement effect; compared with carbon fiber composite materials, the cost of materials is lower.
