Homeowner Pat W. found himself in a tight spot when water began flooding his basement. Pat knew that he needed to find a waterproofing company who could repair his wet basement and prevent future flooding in his Blair home. He asked around and after a phone call from a close friend he found out about Thrasher Basement Systems, who he contacted for a free estimate.
Waterproofing specialist Cole Hathon from Thrasher arrived promptly to inspect the problem and recommend the proper solutions. Cole took a look at Pat's basement and found that water was seeping in from the foundation, causing flooding to his basement. After some deliberation Pat and Cole came to an agreement on products that were both cost efficient and effective. Cole explained that a SuperSump sump pump was a must to remove water from the basement and keep it dry. This sump pump is top of the line on the market, with the ability to pump 2220 gallons out an hour, comes with an eight-foot discharge line. In combination with the sump pump, a WaterGuard drainage system and IceGuard discharge line were recommended. The WaterGuard is installed along the perimeter of the basement to catch incoming water seepage and direct it towards the sump pump. The sump pump then discharges the water through the IceGuard which prevents the water from freezing even in the coldest of winters. Foreman Mel Martinez and his crew were called in to complete the installation process.
Thanks to the professionals at Thrasher Basement Systems Pat's basement is drier than ever and will stay that way through even the heaviest of rain storms. And what’s better? The waterproofing system took only one day to install!
After noticing that their home’s foundation was settling and a basement wall bowing inward, Rory & Mikki M. knew that the situation needed to be addressed immediately. Rory came across an ad for Thrasher Basement Systems in the Yellow Pages and decided to contact them for a free estimate.
Soon after contacting them, Rory & Mikki were met by foundation specialist Tom Bilyeu at their Blair, NE home. After evaluating their current situation, Tom knew exactly what had to be done to permanently repair Mr. & Mrs. M.'s foundation issues. Tom recommended the push pier system for the settling foundation, which works by being connected to the wall that is settling. Next, the piers are then driven into the ground hydraulically until a suitable loading bearing stratum is encountered. Over time the foundation slowly starts to lift and eventually will come back to normal. For the bowing wall, Tom recommended that wall anchors be installed which are anchors that are embedded into the soil away from the foundation wall. Then connected to steel wall plates with anchoring rods. The anchors will hold the wall in its current position. A benefit of this system is the ability to tighten the wall anchors during dry periods when the soil has contracted. This enables possible improvement and straightening of the wall over time.
Rory and Mikki agreed to the recommendation, Brent Foreman and Jason Wilson and their crews came in to install the piers & wall anchors. Thanks to the professionals at Thrasher Basement Systems, the couple can now enjoy their home with no worries of future settling or bowing!
