Holly, of Elkhorn, NE, had a driveway that was sinking into the soil underneath it. Because of this, it was tilted and was causing problems. While she was looking for a solution she called
Thrasher to help her come up with a solution to her problem.
Thrasher installed injections of PolyLEVEL under the concrete driveway. PolyLEVEL is an alternative to traditional methods of resolving sinking concrete, which involves removing the entire slab. This is both very expensive and it does not solve the problem of the poor soil underneath. PolyLEVEL gets injected under the concrete to make up for the poor, sinking soil.
The project only took one day to complete and install. Holly no longer has to be concerned about her driveway tilting or sinking.
Tim, of Elkhorn, NE, had unevenness in the foundations of his house, which was causing cracks on the inside of his house. The side of his house was sinking due to the poor foundations and the concrete patio was beginning to sink and crack as well. When looking for a solution, he called Thrasher.
A team came in over the course of a few weeks and installed push pier, concrete R and R, and SentrySeal. The push piers were put in place to raise the foundation from the ground and prevent it from sinking into the soil again. The concrete and SentrySeal ensured that the push piers did not move around. Finally, PolyLEVEL was injected under the patio to fix the sinking problem.
The project took a total of seven days from start to finish. The products that were installed will ensure that Tim will have a sturdy foundation to his house and that the cracks inside the house can be remedied.
Georgeann, of Elkhorn, NE, was concerned when he noticed cracks in the concrete floor of his basement. Cracks on a concrete basement floor are often an indicator of poor foundations and can be a warning sign of more significant problems. Georgeann called Thrasher to get the matter resolved.
Thrasher injected PolyLEVEL under the concrete floor of his basement to help provided stability and keep it from sinking any more. A crack sealant was also installed to provide a more permanent seal to the crack and to make sure that it wouldn’t be as much of a problem for Georgeann again. The project only took one day to complete.
James and Margaret, of Elkhorn, NE, were concerned about their sump pump because it had a tendency to allow leaking or shut off when it rained because it and another pump were both plugged into the same outlet. To try to solve their problem, they called Thresher to see what their options were.
Thresher installed a TripleSafe sump pump to replace their old pump. An IceGuard was also put in place to direct the water that the sump pump pumped out of the house away from the foundation of the house. As well, they alos installed a 20 Amp single dedicated outlet to fix their problem of having two large machines plugged into the same outlet.
The project took two days to complete and now James and Margaret don’t have to worry about their sump pump losing power when they have heavy rain.
Zhen and Yulong, of Elkhorn, NE, were concerned about the damaging effects of having radon in their house. So, they called Thrasher and their support team to help them resolve their problem.
They had a basic radon mitigation package installed to purify their house of any radon in the air. Then they had plexiglass and domed sump covers installed as well.
It only took a day to install the radon prevention devices. In the long run, Zhen and Yulong with be able to rest easy knowing that their house is safe from the harmful effects that radon can bring into the household.
Andre Fayed of Elkorn, NE and his family were moving back to the United States and he needed to find a contractor he could trust to deliver on promises. There were going to be out of the states during the entire project and unfortunately his previous experience with contractors was not good thus, making his decision-making process all the more serious. After meeting with our Thrasher representatives Andre was assured that we would exceed his expectations, deliver on time and provide him a finished basement that was mildew resistant, healthy and long lasting for his family.
Andre wanted to finish the basement in order to provide a fun and entertaining environment for his family. He wanted to ensure they were dictating how they live in their home vs. letting the space dictate their lifestyle. His wish list included a bedroom and bathroom for guests, a kitchen and bar, a family room and a theater room for entertaining. In addition, to the rooms their basement also needed a walk-in-closet for storage and a hidden door for their gun safe.
Thrasher Basement Systems was able to complete this finished space within eight weeks. Andre was exceptionally pleased with our communication during the project and exceedingly pleased with the final results of the finished basement. Everyone in the family loves it!
Cindy C. was having problems with her 15 year old sump pump. It was no longer keeping up with the water that was coming into the sump pit. She knew something needed to be done asap to replace the old, worn out pump. She heard about Thrasher Basement Systems from her sister-in-law and decided to give them a call.
Shortly after giving them a call, basement specialist Allen Berglund was out to give his advice on which sump pump would be best to suit Cindy's needs. He decided to install a Zoeller M53 sump pump and UltraSump back up with be the perfect fit for the homeowner. The M53 is the primary pump and quite possibly one of the best pumps you can buy, pumping out 2580 gallons per hour. The UltraSump is a DC-operated battery back up sump pump that is ready to take over if the power should fail for any reason.
Cindy C. is very happy that she decided to go with Thrasher. Allen was quick and friendly, she no longer has to worry about her sump pump failing to work and leaving a mess in her basement!
Rodger L. became increasingly concerned when he noticed that his basement walls appeared to be bowing and cracking. He knew that buckling foundation walls could potentially be very detrimental to his home, and recognized it was important to contact a professional immediately. After doing a little online research and sifting through reviews, he decided to contact Thrasher Basement Systems due to their positive reputation.
Foundation expert Charles Kneifl arrived at Rodger's home later that week to investigate and determine what the best remedy would be for his basement. With the help of foreman Juan Matos, a Geo-Lock Wall Anchor was installed into the basement. The anchors are embedded in stable, undisturbed soil outside your foundation wall. Each anchor is connected by a steel rod to a wall plate that provides clamping pressure against the inside of the foundation wall. As a result, Rodger's basement walls were permanently stabilized thanks to anchor system.
The homeowner was extremely satisfied knowing that he now had a stable foundation and that his home was no longer in danger of caving in on itself all thanks to Thrasher Basement Systems!
Radon is no laughing matter, causing more than 21,000 lung cancer-related deaths a year, radon should never be overlooked. When Melissa and John Y. found their home had elevated levels of radon, they knew they needed to call in an expert to lower the radon levels, or risk putting their lives in jeopardy. After being referred to Thrasher Basement Systems, John & Melissa gave them a call to come out to evaluate their home.
That same week, the couple was met by radon specialist Joel Hookum who came to evaluate their radon levels. After the evaluation, Joel recommended that the homeowners install a radon fan. Along with the combination of PVC and a PVC exhaust cap, these solutions would effectively and efficiently suck up the radon and exhaust it out of the home with no threat to their well being.
Erik Cody and his crew returned to install the radon prevention products. After installation of the radon mitigation system, radon should no longer be a source of stress in Mr. & Mrs. Y's home. With radon causing more deaths per year than drunk driving, radon mitigation should be a no-brainer. Call Thrasher Basement Systems for your free estimate today!
