Stone Foundation Wall Begins to Erode in St. Louis City

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.

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.

Super Job

This put the finishing touch on our sump pump project. You had ported the discharge to drain down our front lawn. But in the winter water percolated down and onto the sidewalk and froze creating a serious hazard . This work was done this morning in a couple of hours and looks great. Thanks for the quick response.
