Over the years Roger P. saw that the foundation on his home was cracking quite a bit due to settlement. It had finally gotten to the point where the stair step cracks were getting out of control. It so happened that days after deciding something had to be done he got a flyer in the mail from Thrasher Basement Systems showing past jobs with the same issues. It was fate.
After giving Thrasher a call, Cole Hothan came to give his professional opinion. He suggested that Push Piers be installed to slowly lift the foundation and eventually will make it come back to normal. Push Piers work by being connected to the walls that are settling and driven into the ground hydraulically until a suitable loading bearing stratum is encountered.
Foreman Jason Wilson installed the piers and Roger is now living in a safe home and no longer has to deal with the stress from his settling foundation.
Homeowner Rebecca S. noticed a sizable crack in her foundation wall that was leaking water into her crawl space. Even though it only happens during heavy rains she knew this was something that could not wait to be repaired. Referred by her mother-in-law, she gave Thrasher Basement Systems a call.
Thrasher crawl space expert Deon Theone came out to inspect the foundation and determined that it would be best for foreman John Mace install a few products. They agreed on putting in a CleanSpace liner, Drainage Matting & SmartDrain. The Drainage Matting is installed over the dirt and under the CleanSpace, it creates a drainage space that allows water to make its way to the SmartDrain. The SmartDrain alerts of a leak and drains the water until the leak can be repaired. CleanSpace is a 20 mil. liner that protects against mold, mildew & is tear resistant.
John installed two SmartJacks which is a support system to help reduce more cracking of the foundation. Rebecca can now live without worry of water coming into her crawl space thanks to the great people at Thrasher!
Jon & Michelle L. have a partially finished basement with major water damage to the drywall. They were very concerned about the health risks of the mold growth that was forming. They were fed up with fighting a losing battle with their mess of a basement. Good thing a friend suggested Thrasher Basement System, they would soon be the answer to Jon & Michelle's basement worries.
Basement waterproofing specialist Matt Caniglia came out to give the couple an estimate that would suit their needs. He suggested that Juan Matos come with his crew to install a WaterGuard drainage system. A perimeter drain system that would guide water in the basement to the TripleSafe sump pump, which is one of the best pumps on the market. It has a second pump and a battery back up sump pump for safety during power outages. In addition, Juan installed a SaniDry dehumidifier that covers up to 2500 sq. ft. and removes moisture from the air to make the home mold and mildew free.
With all of these things combined, Jon & Michelle can finish their basement without worry of water damage and health risks due to mold. This is all thanks to Thrasher Basement Systems!
