Foundation Repair in Baxter Springs, KS
Jeff W. is a homeowner in Baxter Springs, KS but had recently purchased a new home making him want to sell his current one. However, before selling Jeff knew the foundation problems were going to have be taken care of. To find the best permanent solution, Jeff gave Thrasher a call to come inspect the failing foundation.
System Design Specialist Robert Griffin arrived in Baxter Springs to perform a thorough inspection in order to find the best solution. The interior wall that separated the crawl space from the cellar area had a two-inch sheer at the bottom and deflected enough the floor above it had dropped. To fix this, the team installed our PowerBrace support system and ShotLock wall restoration. The PowerBrace permanently stabilizes the foundation and can be tightened over time to return it to its vertical position. ShotLock is then used to seal all cracks to prevent water from seeping in.

Basement Waterproofing in Marion, KS
Bon and Joanne G. inherited this home in Marion, KS and wanted to fix the water issues in the basement to increase the value before selling the property. In addition, they wanted peace of mind for the next owner knowing they wouldn’t have the problems on their hands. Bob was familiar with Thrasher and our reputation of providing the best permanent solutions, so they gave us a call to come inspect the damage.
To begin the project, System Design Specialist Robert Griffin arrived in Marion to perform a thorough inspection on the wet basement to develop possible solutions. This is an older home, and it was determined that the point of entry for the water was near the brick fireplace and high moisture content in the south wall. The team began waterproofing the basement by installing our WaterGuard drainage system around the full perimeter. Next, CleanSpace waterproof barrier was applied to all the walls to prevent any moisture or water vapor from entering the space. Lastly, a TripleSafe sump pump system was installed to guarantee the basement stays dry year-round. Each of these products are effective on their own, but when they are combined it’s the ultimate waterproofing solution.
Bob and Joanne were thrilled with the outcome of the repair. They were impressed with the variety of solutions we provide, and our teams display of professionalism. Thrasher was able retore their peace of mind and give them the confidence they need to go forward in the process of selling the home.
Gutter Replacement in Andover, KS
Charity H. is a homeowner in Andover, KS and was fed up with water seeping into her basement every time it rained. She became concerned with the damage water could cause on the foundation of her home. Needing a permanent and quality solution, she gave Thrasher a call.
System Design Specialist Robert Griffin arrived at the scene to perform and inspection on the home. After investigating the exterior of the house, it was obvious the size and quality of the gutters were the issue. They weren’t large enough to handle the capacity of water needed to prevent them from overflowing and washing out the soil against the foundation. In addition, the downspouts hadn’t been maintained and were also contributing to the erosion of soil every time it rained. To combat this issue, Robert designed a gutter shutter system specifically for this home and buried the downspouts to drain the water effectively. In addition, our team added wide mouth outlets to the downspout for increased flow and prevention of any bottlenecks in the system.
Charity was thrilled with her new gutter system’s appearance and functionality. She was impressed with our variety of solutions and dedication to her well-being. She now has confidence that her basement will stay dry every time rain is on the forecast.

Basement Waterproofing in Mayfield, KS
Cheryl H. has been dealing with a water problem in her basement for quite awhile and had become more then frustrated with the situation. She bought her home 4 years ago. About 6 months after moving in, she noticed water pouring into her basement. To add to the issue, Cheryl loves to travel and became extremely worried about how that would effect her ability to leave her home and have the peace of mind that everything was going to be safe at home.
In an attempt to fix it themselves, Cheryl H and one of her friends grab some sealant, but it was a band aid fix. In a short period of time, the water returned. She thought it was a plumbing issue so she called another contractor to help. Once again this did not fix the problem and she did not know where to turn. After seeing multiple TV ad's and all of the Thrasher trucks around Wichita and surrounding community's she knew she had to make the call.
We installed a WaterGuard system that captures water and then redirects it to our SuperSump Plus that removes the water away from the home. We also installed CleanSpace to her basement walls creating a protective barrier to prevent water from reaching the basement but also preventing mold to grow.
Basement Waterproofing System in Hutchinson, KS
Cindy A. is a homeowner in Hutchinson, KS and has dealt with water issues in the basement for a majority of the 35 years she’s lived there. Lately, she’s been considering selling the home and wants to ensure it would bring maximum value, but with the wet basement she wasn’t sure it would sell. Based on our reputation and recommendations from her loved ones, she chose Thrasher to come waterproof her wet basement.
To begin the basement waterproofing project, System Design Specialist Robert Griffin arrived at the home in Hutchinson, KS to inspect the problems at hand. Robert concluded that the foundation had been allowing water and moisture in due to the lack of an exterior footing drain. The home was built in the 1970s and was originally constructed without one. This caused the walls to crack and begin to bow inward. To guarantee the basement stays dry permanently, Cindy had our teams install a combination of our waterproofing products. We began by installing our WaterGuard interior drainage system and CleanSpace waterproof barrier around the full perimeter of the basement. Then, a TripleSafe sump pump was installed to drain the water effectively outside. To conclude the project, our team buried the downspouts on the exterior of the home to prevent any water from building up against the foundation walls.
Cindy was not only thrilled with the outcome, but she was relieved to have her basement restored to a dry and safe environment once again. Thrasher was able to help Cindy regain her peace of mind and give her the confidence she needs by increasing her home’s value.
