Our Purpose

Our purpose is to redefine our industry throughout Nebraska, Kansas, Iowa, and Missouri.

We believe experiences can be remarkable. Since 1975, we've focused on the value of doing whatever it takes to get the job done and "wow" our customers every step of the way.

Our Story

The moment you walk into your basement and it's flooded from last night's rainfall, or you see cracks spidering up the wall, is a homeowner's worst nightmare. When you know there is a problem, the feeling of "home" is displaced. Our job is to return that feeling to you.

We have always listened to the needs of our customers and grown our business to meet them. Our success is a result of expanding and evolving what we offer beyond basement waterproofing and foundation repair to include things like concrete repair - for a more complete set of solutions. Thrasher is humbled to be in the business of making whole the places where you live and work.

Our History

From small beginnings operating as a duo out of their farmhouse in 1975, Greg and Nancy Thrasher took a "whatever it takes" approach to keeping customers happy. Today we operate from multiple offices across four states, and stay true to our roots by using quality products, installing them properly and standing behind our work.
