Robert C. once had a nicely finished basement with carpeting and drywall until heavy rains brought along flooding in the basement. As a result he had to throw everything out and start from scratch. He also wanted to make sure the flooding never happened again. After being referred by a friend he decided to give Thrasher Basement Systems a call. Shortly after the call, Mike Spencer was out to give the homeowner a quote.
Mike suggested the best course of action was to have Mel Martinez and his crew come out to install DryTrak & a TripleSafe sump pump. DryTrak is a system where weep holes are drilled into the floor/wall joint or, in the case of a block wall, into the walls themselves. Once this is done, a hollow vinyl baseboard is epoxied to the floor. The water is then directed into the system and drained to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe is one of the best sump pumps on the market. With the addition of both a second pump and a battery backup sump pump, it is the most ideal and safest solution for basement waterproofing.
After the waterproofing was complete Robert was safe to start on the refinishing of the basement. To start off, he had the crew install EverLast wall panels. This wall solution has been designed from inorganic materials that are water resistant and does not support mold growth. With all of this work said and done, Robert is very happy he decided to go with Thrasher for his basement waterproofing and finishing needs!
Homeowner Joe R. had an ongoing problem with his basement. The walls were bowing in and seeping water into what could be very usable space. While Joe was at a local home show he found the perfect solution to his dilemma; Thrasher Basement Systems!
Promptly after Joe put a request in at the home show, he got a call back to have specialist Mike Haye come out to his home and check out the bowing walls and water trouble. To settle the water issue, foreman Juan Matos came to install WaterGuard. Which is a drainage system that guides water along the wall to his existing sump pump. The water is then pumped out of the home through a discharge line connected to an IceGuard that prevents the water from freezing even in the coldest of winters.
For the bowing of the walls, foreman Conor Casey came with his crew to install Geo-Lock wall anchors. These would prevent the wall from moving in anymore and eventually straighten the wall over time. Fort Dodge homeowners know exactly where to go for one-stop shopping on all their foundation issues!
