Unwanted Dirt in the Basement
The basement had cracks throughout all the walls, constantly letting dirt inside. The home was built in 1956 and was vacant for a few years.
Metal bars are secured into the existing walls to create more structure. Shotcrete is a sprayable concrete that stabilizes basement walls and fills any holes that let in unwanted dirt, water, or air.
It's applied though a high-pressure hose. The extra air propelling the concrete out is what makes the shotcrete able to be applied to vertical and sloping surfaces.
