Jill and Dan of Bennington, NE were concerned by the water that was leaking into their basement and they knew that they needed professional help to remove it and keep it from happening again. As well, they tested their home for radon and found that it came back positive. They very much wanted to make sure that they would be safe from the harmful effects of radon in their home, so they called Thrasher for help.
Thrasher first addressed the problem of the water leakage in the basement. They installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier and a TripleSafe sump pump to pump out the water that was in the basement. As well, the put in an IceGuard to direct the water efficiently out of the house and away from the house foudnations
To fix the radon problem, they installed a basic radon mitigation system with an interior aesthetic package. As well, they had a Breath EZ filter and a noise reduction muffler installed so that the side effects of having a mitigation system inside the house would be reduced. This project only took two days to install. The products installed, combined with a 10 year warranty will ensure that Jill and Dan will be safe from radon for years to come.
Adam and Jessica of Bennington, NE were excited about closing the sale on their home, but they wanted to get part of the driveway fixed before they closed officially. Their driveway was pushing up into the foundations of their house and so they needed a way to resolve that before they sold their house. Thrasher was accommodating and they came in and installed the day that they closed on their house.
The reason that the driveway was pushing into the foundations of their house was because of street creeping. When the weather is either really hot or cold, then the pavement in the street compresses and expands which causes it to press against the pavement in certain driveway situations. Because the pavement is pushing against the driveway pavement, the driveway pushes into the foundations of the house and, gradually, the foundations and walls can begin to crack and become unstable. A Street Creep Stopper was installed in Adam and Jessica’s home to fix and prevent the problem of street creeping.
The project only took a day and then Adam and Jessica were able to sell their home with satisfaction and move on with their lives.
James of Bennington, NE noticed that his basement wall was beginning to lean in a bit. Then he noticed that the same was true of his outside walls. He knew something was wrong and that if he did nothing, that it would only get worse over time and possibly cause permanent damage to his house’s foundations. He researched the best contractors in his area and chose Thrasher.
Thrasher installed Geo-Lock wall anchors in the ground under his house. The way Geo-Lock anchors work is that they are first imbedded in the soil away from the wall and then in the wall itself. In this way, the wall can be corrected over time and the foundation of the wall can stay intact.
The project only took one day to install and James is now happy that his walls will be on their way to being straighter and supporting his house better than ever.
Jim and Patty of Bennington, NE were worried about the dangers of having radon in the home. So, they got their house tested and they decided that they wanted a professional to come in and mitigate their home so that they wouldn’t be at risk for absorbing radon. In their search for a good contractor, they found Thrasher.
Thrasher came in and installed a basic radon mitigation system as well as an exterior aesthetic package. The exterior aesthetic package ensures that the mitigation system is contained neatly on the outside of the house and is not intrusive. As well, they also had a Breath EZ filter installed to help with the poor air quality in their house.
The project only took one day to install. Jim and Patty no longer have to worry about the dangers of radon coming into their home’s air.
Bill and Sherie of Bennington, NE were concerned about the harmful effects of having radon in one’s home. So, they got their house tested and they decided that they wanted a professional to come in and mitigate their home so that they wouldn’t be at risk for absorbing radon. When looking for just the right person, they found Thrasher.
Thrasher came in and installed a basic radon mitigation system with a 10 year warranty as well as an interior aesthetic package. The interior aesthetic package ensures that the mitigation system is well contained and presented neatly within the home with the benefit that it cannot be seen from the outside of the house. To add to this, they also had a noise reduction muffler installed so that the presence of the mitigation system would be felt even less.
The project only took one day to install and it has ensured that Bill and Sherie do not have to worry about the harmful effects of radon coming into contact with them while they are n their home.
Local homeowners Jenny & Marv K. were worried about the effects of high radon levels in their home. They decided to conduct a radon test and take action if necessary. The self-test reading was well above the “safe” level of 4 pCi/L. Jenny heard from a friend about Thrasher, who could help lower the radon levels in their Bennington home.
Mr. & Mrs. K scheduled an inspection and estimate with Thrasher Basement Systems. Radon removal specialist Aaron Hunter recommended that a radon mitigation system be installed. Radon mitigation reduces radon levels to a safer amount. Barry Cavanagh came shortly after to install the system that will help get the harmful, dangerous gases away from the home through piping.
Now the homeowners can be rest assured that the air that they are breathing is safe and healthy!
After noticing his foundation slowly sinking over time in one corner of his Bennington home, Mike K. decided to do some research on the internet. He wanted to know what options he had to remedy the settling foundation. He then decided to give Thrasher a call.
Thrasher immediately sent out foundation specialist Tom Keck to evaluate the issues mentioned. After an adequate review of the foundation, Tom recommended a long-term solution for Mike. When Thrasher technician Jim Hesse arrived on site, he installed the 7 Push Piers to secure the foundation. This system uses foundation brackets secured against the existing footing and pier sections driven in hydraulically to lift and secure the structure.
Thrasher's technicians were so knowledgeable and reliable that Mike's foundation problem was solved once and for all!
Mark & Gretchen E. had water seeping into their unfinished basement. This disturbing problem can be a very stressful one for homeowners, but fortunately they knew who to go to for their basement waterproofing & finishing needs.
Soon after their call, Shane McClintic of Thrasher Basement Systems was at the Bennington, NE home to assess the situation. It was determined that the best course of action was for Salvador Lopez to install a WaterGuard drainage system that would guide water to a TripleSafe sump pump (that would also be installed). Together they would pump all the unwanted water away from the home, with a battery back-up system for extra peace of mind. Also, to give the basement a more finished and clean look, he would install the EverLast Wall system. A wall system used to brighten and clean up spaces.
Mark & Gretchen can now be rest assured that their once leaky and dim basement, which was a cause of stress and frustration, can now become a relaxing worry-free environment for them.
