Whether you’re building or renovating a pool, constructing retaining walls, or creating unique architectural features, Yoder Home Services is here to provide you with professional shotcrete installation services that will bring your vision to life with precision and strength.

What is shotcrete? Think concrete at high velocity! Shotcrete is typically used for overhead or vertical surfaces that are difficult to apply manually. The impact of the shotcrete on hard to reach forms and shapes creates a strong substrate that you can count on to shore up whatever it’s applied to.

Do you have a vertical or overhead surface that you think might be a good candidate for shotcrete? Let us know!

Shotcrete is a construction technique that involves spraying a mixture of cement, aggregates, and water at high velocity onto a surface. It is commonly used for structural repairs, building new structures, and soil stabilization.

There are two primary methods of shotcrete application: dry-mix shotcrete and wet-mix shotcrete. In dry-mix shotcrete, the dry ingredients are combined at the nozzle and mixed with water during application. In wet-mix shotcrete, the mixture of cement, aggregates, and water is prepared and delivered to the nozzle under pressure.

Shotcrete offers several advantages, including high strength and durability, rapid application, reduced formwork requirements, excellent bonding to various surfaces, and the ability to be applied on vertical or overhead surfaces.

Shotcrete is commonly used for a wide range of applications, including repairing and strengthening existing structures, constructing new buildings and tunnels, slope stabilization, lining tunnels and mines, and creating artificial rock formations in theme parks and zoos.

Shotcrete is similar to regular concrete in terms of its main components (cement, aggregates, and water). However, the application method and the addition of accelerators to the mix make shotcrete distinct, allowing it to be applied with high velocity onto vertical or overhead surfaces.

Shotcrete can have similar or even higher strength compared to traditional cast-in-place concrete, depending on the mix design and application process. The proper application technique and material selection play a significant role in achieving the desired strength.

Shotcrete application involves the preparation of the mix, loading it into the shotcrete equipment (either wet-mix or dry-mix process), and spraying it onto the surface with a nozzle. Skilled operators control the application to ensure proper thickness and consolidation.

Yes, shotcrete is commonly used in underwater applications, such as repairing underwater structures, building marine structures, and stabilizing underwater slopes. Special formulations and equipment are used for successful underwater shotcrete placement.

Accelerators are added to the shotcrete mix to speed up the setting and early strength gain, enabling rapid construction and reducing the risk of washout in wet applications. They are particularly useful in cold weather or when rapid turnaround times are required.

Shotcrete application requires specialized equipment, technical expertise, and adherence to safety protocols. It is not recommended for DIY projects. Professional shotcrete contractors should be hired for safe and successful shotcrete applications.
