St. Louis Foundation Repair Team Heals Home with Shotcrete

Location: St. Louis, MO

Job Type:

Problem:

A client contacted Helitech after a St. Louis City Building Inspector referred her. An abandoned building next door to her house had fallen on the east wall of her house and tore the gutters off. Without the gutters being replaced, subsequent rains caused a section of the soil under the stone foundation wall to erode.

Solution:

Helitech began by installing a shoring system to support the soil. The crew then built a steel framed cage adjacent to the wall with a 4 foot wide and 2 foot thick footing. Helitech sprayed concrete onto the steel cage using a method called Shotcrete. The crew then hand troweled the Shotcrete wall to a smooth finish.

Very pleased with our experience so far with Helitech. In a time where we are very stressed with a large issue in our basement, we have been focused on finding the right fix with people who will shoot us straight and make us comfortable again in our own home.

We really enjoyed Kevin Estes. He is a straight shooter who explained everything in detail and walked us through our options step by step and thoroughly. He is also good for a few laughs along the way. We will sleep better tonight knowing that they will take care of us.
