Shotcrete Repair

Our team at Foundation Specialist provides expert damaged and crumbling concrete repair for both home and business owners in Michigan. If you have noticed damage to your foundation, retaining walls, or any other concrete wall on your property, we can help. In most cases damaged concrete walls can be repaired rather than replaced. We use a patented shotcrete and spraycrete technique that allows our team to strengthen the existing walls without the need for costly removal or replacement.

How To Identify Damaged Concrete Walls

Identifying damaged concrete walls is easy, if you walk around your property take note to see if you can identify any of the following signs. If you do notice any of these signs you can contact our experts to help with repairs.

  • Large missing chunks of concrete

  • Erosion on exterior walls and foundation walls

  • Large cracks or missing sections of concrete

How We Repair Damaged Concrete Walls

Our team uses either shotcrete or spray concrete to repair and reinforce damaged concrete walls. Take a look below to learn more about the repair processes.

Shotcrete

Shotcrete refers to a process by which a special concrete mixture is sprayed from a hose and onto a damaged concrete surface. This surface could be your foundation, driveway, garage floor, patio, sidewalk, or any other concrete surface. Shotcrete can easily be applied, and is a much more cost-effective solution than total foundation or concrete replacement. Shotcrete is typically an all-inclusive term used to describe both wet and dry mix versions. It's becoming a popular alternative to total concrete replacement because it undergoes placement and compaction at the same time because of the force with which it is applied from the hose's nozzle. It can be put on any type of concrete surface, including vertical and overhead areas.

Basically, shotcrete has the following advantages over total foundation or concrete replacement:

  • Less time
  • Less money
  • Less disruption
  • Four times stronger than standard concrete

Spray Concrete

In addition to our Shotcrete services, we can provide repairs using spray concrete. The process consists of the following steps. First we clean and remove all loose wall debris. Next we will drill and pin a wire mesh to the existing foundation wall. We will then apply two coats of a sticky concrete mixture. Finally we will apply a light broom finish to the sprayed concrete. By applying the wire mesh, we add reinforcement which provides strength and durability to the repair. This is a more affordable alternative to Shotcrete
