How Does It Work?

SUMMARY

ExoStructures quickly wrap an insulated, weather-resistant, structural shell around an existing building, using the am‑cor System.

5 STEP OVERVIEW

  1. Site Prep: Trench around & clean existing concrete structure
  2. Place: am‑cor carbon steel mesh panels on footer & fasten to existing structure
  3. Option: Install additional services & superinsulation (vapor barrier)
  4. Weatherize: Apply amcorite (Ferrocement stucco) = seamless, unibody structural shell
  5. Completion: Apply finish surface (brick tile, siding, stucco); Backfill & Landscape

Summary

am-cor ExoStructures use the am-cor System’s Ferrocement unibody structural construction technology to quickly and inexpensively fix & rehabilitate existing or damaged concrete block, cast, brick or wood structures.

am-cor Exostructures add flexibility, by adding additional cavity wall space for new services, and energy savings, by earth-tempering & superinsulating the existing structure.
