Ida Grove resident Steve I. had a horizontal crack running the length of his basement wall. Knowing that the crack can only lead to worse problems like water coming into the basement, Steve knew he had to have something done sooner rather than later. While watching T.V. with his family he saw an ad for Thrasher Basement Systems and decided to give them a try.
Foundation expert Mike Spencer was out to the home in no time at all to give an estimate on the repairs that could be done. Mike thought it best to install 4 Geo-Lock wall anchors to return the wall to its original position and prevent any more cracks from forming. Fausto Diaz was out to the home to install the galvanized earth anchors that are embedded into the soil away from the foundation wall. Then connected to steel wall plates with anchoring rods.
Steve is pleased with the service that Thrasher provided for him and no longer has to worry about the crack leading to bigger more expensive problems. He learned it always best to take care of simple issues before they turn into worse ones.
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!
Dennis & Kay P. noticed some cracking on the drywall in an addition they built on their home. Knowing that this could possibly be a serious foundation issue, the homeowners knew they needed to find a solution. After a quick search on the internet, the couple resolved to give Thrasher Basement Systems a call.
Quickly after their first call, foundation expert Mike Spencer was at Dennis & Kay's Elmwood home. He decided that the best course of action to keep the home from further foundation issues was to have foreman Jason Carlin and his crew install Geo-Lock wall anchors. The wall anchors permanently stabilize the walls, offering the best opportunity to straighten the walls without the cost and disruption of foundation replacement. This will prevent anymore wall cracking in the future.
Thanks to Thrasher Basement Systems Dennis and Kay can go on to finish their addition on the home without any worry of the walls cracking any more!
