Extreme Foundation Repairs Are Fast And Smooth With The Shotcrete Restoration System
More and more, we hear of cities revitalizing older neighborhoods. Often times, these homes attract buyers because of their history, character and charm.
Unfortunately, the foundation walls in older homes have sometimes deteriorated significantly due to the home’s age or the building materials used to construct the home.
When foundation walls have deteriorated excessively or have started to cave in, there are few options available to fix the problem. Commonly, homeowners are forced to completely remove and replace their entire foundation, which is extremely costly, disruptive and time consuming.
Perhaps worst of all, the new foundation is built with the same soil conditions that led to collapse in the first place.

The Shotcrete Wall Restoration System from Foundation Supportworks permanently stabilizes foundation walls that have deteriorated excessively. Even in cases where foundation walls have extreme damage, or when the walls are constructed with inadequate building materials such as stone, rubble, brick or clay tile, the Shotcrete Restoration System offers a long-lasting solution.
The wall restoration process begins by installing Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchors to stabilize the existing foundation walls. Next, Shotcrete is impacted onto the face of the existing wall, embedding the wall anchors into the new Shotcrete wall.
Finally, the wall finish is smoothed out and the work area is cleaned up, leaving you with a stable and completely restored foundation.
What is Shotcrete?
To someone unfamiliar with concrete technology, the term “shotcrete” probably sounds like concrete that’s shot from a gun. Actually, that’s a fairly accurate description of a repair process that can transform a cracked, badly damaged foundation wall into a wall that’s strong, smooth and attractive.
Shotcrete is a fiber-reinforced mortar mixture that is designed to be pumped through a hose and is sprayed at high pressure against a wall or other surface. Due to the high force used to adhere the material to the wall, Shotcrete undergoes a significant compaction process during installation that produces more than double the strength of regular concrete.
Faster, less disruptive and more affordable than other techniques
The process of integrating shotcrete with other wall repair products like wall anchor systems and I-beam systems, is a patent-pending process that allows property owners to restore basement walls that are in extremely damaged condition.
Contractors who are not authorized by Foundation Supportworks to utilize the patent-pending Shotcrete Restoration System, are likely to suggest total wall replacement when they encounter severe foundation wall damage. Foundation replacement is extremely disruptive and costly, and worst of all, nothing is done to stop the same problem from happening to the new wall.
The Shotcrete Wall Restoration System from Foundation Supportworks can be completed much more quickly and economically than foundation replacement.
A typical foundation wall repair with shotcrete can be completed within only a few days, with minimal disturbance to the home and its surrounding landscape. Best of all, the Shotcrete Wall Restoration Systems is a warrantied repair that restores property value and peace of mind for property owners.
How Shotcrete is Installed:
Geo-Lock™ Wall Anchors are installed to shore up the existing foundation wall.
A layer of shotcrete is impacted onto the existing wall.
Another plate is connected to the anchor system and is pressed into the shotcrete wall.
An extra layer of shotcrete is installed, fully embedding the anchor system into the new wall.
The shotcrete wall surface is smoothed and finished.
The work area is cleaned up and the job is complete.
