Crawl Space Vapor Barrier in Carl Junction, MO
Ryan and Gina G. are homeowners in Carl Junction, MO, and noticed that their energy bills were increasing each month. Their home had begun to feel damp and musty, so they continued to run the A/C to battle the humidity levels. In addition, they were worried about mold development and the air quality of their environment. Looking for a permanent solution, they gave Thrasher a call to hear about our home repair solutions.
After meeting with our System Design Specialist Sean Robinson, they knew we were the company for them to restore a healthy living space. Ryan and Gina opted to have our crews encapsulate the entire crawl space beneath their home and install our industry-leading dehumidifier. To encapsulate the space, we applied our CleanSpace waterproof vapor barrier to the entire area to trap all moisture before it escapes into the home. Our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was then installed to rid the home of high humidity levels and purify the air.
Ryan and Gina were impressed with the effectiveness of our solutions and the quality of their Thrasher experience. It’s projects like these when we partner with proud homeowners to make a meaningful impact that brings us the satisfaction we’re providing a redefining experience.

Historic Home in Coffeyville, KS has Sagging Floors Repaired
JD & Krista H. live in a historic home and were growing tired of home their dining room floors always bounce. When anybody would walk through the dining room, the bouncing floors would cause their china cabinets to rattle. JD & Krista were worried about the problem getting worse overtime and wanted to preserve their home.
We sent System Design Specialist, Sean Robinson out their home. The existing brick column floor supports, and load-bearing walls were settling due to the high moisture in the basement and water would always come up through the brick floor. This would cause the floors to bounce and sag.
The team SmartJack XTs and supplemental beams to support the floors above. We also installed a TripleSafe, lateral lines and SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. This solution will help control water and protect the new floor supports from settling. Once the project was completed JD and Krista were not only impressed with the work that was done but the clean-up done by the crew.
Large Crawl Space in Belle Plaine, KS is Revived with SmartJacks
LeAnna and Rodney R. wanted to preserve the home that her dad built. There were humps and valleys in the floor. They were worried the floor wouldn't support the weight of everything. They had already done work to try and fix this, but nothing seemed to work.
LeAnna and Rodeney called Thrasher and our System Design Special, Sean Robinson, evaluated the problem. We installed 18 SmartJacks along the full spans of both main beams (9 on each beam). We also installed a 20' supplemental beam and 4 SmartJacks under the bathroom and LeAnna's scrapbooking room, where she has a lot of heavy furniture and full bookcases. All this allowed us to even out and level the floor through the full span of the house. We also encapsulated the crawl space and installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to get moisture and humidity under control, in order to preserve the flooring system and floor support.
Foundation Repair in McPherson, KS
Kelly R. is a proud homeowner in McPherson, KS, and wanted to begin planning for retirement by maximizing the value of his home. Before making any home improvements of his own, he wanted to guarantee the foundation of the home was permanently stable. All four of the basement walls were experiencing wall failure, but some were much more severe than others. Kelly wasn’t sure where to begin looking for a solution, but after a quick Google search, he was immediately impressed by our reviews and extensive reputation. Without hesitation, Kelly gave us a call to provide a permanent solution for his damaged foundation.
To begin the foundation repair project, System Design Specialist Sean Robinson arrived in McPherson, KS to perform a full inspection on the home’s foundation. Sean determined the walls were failing due to constant hydrostatic pressure over a long period of time. Kelly chose to have Thrasher install GeoLock wall anchors for the more severe areas and our PowerBrace wall support system on the rest. The GeoLock wall anchors attach to stable external soil to slowly return the wall to its vertical structure over time. The PowerBrace permanently stabilizes the wall in its current position to ensure the safety of the homeowner.
Kelly was overjoyed with the outcome of the project. Not only was his foundation secure and prepared to stand the test of time, but he was impressed throughout the entirety of his Thrasher experience. Our teams were able to restore Kelly’s peace of mind and give him the confidence he needs to progress into retirement.
Basement Waterproofing in Hutchinson, KS
Kara A. is the landlord of her rental property in Hutchinson, KS and was worried about the structural damage water was having on the walls. In addition, she was worried about mold growth due to the moisture and wanted the new tenant to be able to utilize the whole home. After scheduling an appointment, she loved the detailed explanation we were able to provide.
System Design Specialist Sean Robinson fully inspected the home, and Kara opted to have our team install our full basement waterproofing system. The team began by waterproofing the full perimeter and connecting a lateral line to waterproof the floor. A SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was then installed to prevent moisture and mold growth. Lastly, PowerBraces were installed on three separate walls to permanently stabilize the foundation from moving inward, and can be tightened over time to return the walls to their vertical position.
Kara was thrilled with the team’s efficiency and dedication to quality. Our solutions transformed the basement into a livable space both structurally and aesthetically.
