Waking up to a basement full of water is every homeowner's worst nightmare. But what most people don't realize is that even a tiny amount of water in your basement can lead to a big problem. The dark, damp basement environment is perfect for growing and sustaining mold, and if you have any organic materials in the basement like wood, drywall, or carpet, they are sure to be the first targets for mold colonies.
Rather than suffer through the destruction of your belongings and generally deal with an unpleasant basement space, Thrasher has basement waterproofing solutions proven to stand the test of time – and to deal with any water that may come its way. Here are some of the basement products we can install in your home:

All homeowners are aware of how serious foundation problems can be. Unfortunately, some contractors try to take advantage of this fear by forcing homeowners to spend tons of money on unnecessary repairs. Most of the time, complete foundation replacement is too expensive and doesn't actually solve the problem at hand – foundation settlement.
Here at Thrasher, we utilize a variety of low minimum-disruption solutions for foundation repair that solve issues like foundation settlement, bowing walls, foundation heave and more. All of our products are supplied by Foundation Supportworks, an experienced foundation repair dealer network that employs structural and geotechnical engineers to develop and improve their foundation repair offerings. These products include:
In addition to basement waterproofing and foundation repair services, Thrasher also specializes in crawl space encapsulation. A majority of foul odors in your home can oftentimes be attributed to crawl space water problems. Crawl spaces sit just below the main floors in your home, meaning that mold, mildew, rot, and even pests that are affecting the crawl space can easily have a negative affect on your home.
To add to these problems, many crawl spaces are left open to the outside air, meaning that water from rain or humidity can quickly infiltrate the space. Thrasher recommends crawl space encapsulation for all of these reasons. Our crawl space vapor barrier system identifies and seals all entry points with products like:
A sealed crawl space will lead to a healthier, drier home – there's no reason not to make this investment!
Are the driveways or sidewalks around your home sporting sunken concrete slabs? They might not seem like a big deal – until a guest takes a spill and gets injured because of your bumpy, unlevel concrete! The sooner you take care of concrete settlement, the sooner your property's curb appeal and safety will increase.
Here at Thrasher, we use the proven PolyLevel method of concrete leveling. This product works by injecting a polyurethane foam underneath a sunken slab via a small home. After injection, the foam reacts underground, easily lifting the concrete to its original, level position. The advantages of PolyLevel include:
Radon is a colorless, odorless gas that impossible to detect without professional equipment. Why does this matter? Radon is also the second leading cause of lung cancer in the US, responsible for tens of thousands of deaths every year. Women and especially children are especially susceptible to cancer cause by radon because they breathe more frequently than men – that's why it's crucial to keep your home's radon tests up-to-date.
Thrasher offers thorough radon testing and radon mitigation systems for homes in Council Bluffs. Our radon abatement products will lower radon to safe levels while also preventing its re-entry into your home. Radon levels vary greatly even within the same block, so even if your neighbor's radon levels are low, there's no telling what yours might be like without testing – so make sure to seek out a test if you're not sure.
