Shotcrete Concrete Foundation Repair
Shotcrete is projected concrete that is a dry mix blown directly into a mold using compressed air. As the concrete is released, the dry mix is moistened, allowing it to settle and set in the mold. Shotcrete is also known as ‘gunite’ and can be used as a reinforcement of existing crumbling foundations and can also be applied as a skim coat.
Shotcrete is less expensive than other custom solutions such as the SR Wall System.
