Deteriorating stone foundation walls can cause major structural and water damage, resulting in severe damage to interior and exterior finished surfaces like drywall and cabinets and impact the functionality of doors and windows.
Foundation walls that contain voids like this are not structurally secure or safe and should be reinforced and stabilized with Shotcrete before other repair or finish work is installed.

To install shotcrete, a rebar mat or welded mesh wire is secured over the foundation wall. Any plumbing, windows and any other components are protected with plastic. If any existing siding or stucco is wanting to be preserved, it would also be covered and protected before installing shotcrete.

First, a rebar mat or wire mesh is secured over the foundation wall.

Shotcrete is then sprayed over the mesh. The high strength concrete allows for penetration into the nooks, crannies and voids in the foundation, improving the structural integrity and prolonging the useful life of the foundation.

Crews work to smooth and scrape to form a wall.

The crews work quickly after spraying to smooth, fill voids and scrape the concrete to form a wall. Gaps and thinner spots are filled in.

A damp sponge is used to smooth out and provide a light texture to the wall.

The job site is cleaned up and left to dry and cure. The walls are now ready for stucco, siding or other finish work.
