Over our many years in business, Thrasher has become synonymous with quality and friendly service for homeowners throughout Nebraska. We can't help to get started on your home improvement needs!
The stability of your home's foundation depends mainly on how loose the soils around your home are. Rain readily infiltrates weak soil, making it shift, and when this water freezes or melts it creates even more movement. A foundation trapped in this moving soil will lead to various problems like foundation settlement and foundation heave. What does this mean for your home? Your property will experience the following symptoms:
If neglected, any of these problems have the potential to turn catastrophic - whole homes can settle, bowing walls can collapse, and chimneys can completely detach from your home. Additionally, if you're looking to sell your home, buyers won't touch a property with foundation issues. Safety and property value alone should be good enough reasons to invest in foundation repair from Thrasher.
Using products created by engineering professionals at Foundation Supportworks, Thrasher can solve any foundation issue that comes our way. We've even been known to help fix properties that other contractors had completely written off. Using foundation piers, wall anchors and braces, crawl space support jacks, or any combination of these products, we can provide a permanent solution to stabilize your foundation and restore your home.
Most homes have some form of concrete features on the outside - it's a common building material that's almost impossible to avoid. However, the weight of concrete can cause some problems when soils aren't strong enough to bear the load. Concrete slab settlement is almost inevitable over the years - but now, there's a quick and easy way to fix it!
While other contractors might use traditional but inferior methods to treat concrete settlement, Thrasher trusts PolyLevel. PolyLevel is a two-part polyurethane foam that expands underground to lift and level concrete. Incredibly strong yet lightweight and environmentally friendly, PolyLevel can be trusted to last while offering minimal disturbance. PolyLevel can be used to fix any number of areas with concrete around your property, including:
Problems with basements often stem from leaky pipes, sump pump failure, or flooding during heavy rain. If you find that your basement has a musty smell, pooling water, or mold and mildew, then you need to call in the experts at Thrasher. We can repair water damaged walls and floor with matting and vapor barriers to seal out humidity and bugs while keeping the area energy-efficient.
To eliminate standing water in your basement, the TripleSafe sump pump is the proven product that will get the job done. With a primary pump, secondary pump, as well as a third, battery operated backup pump, you can always have peace of mind knowing that your home is protected from water damage. In addition, our excellent drainage systems will deposit any water in your basement a safe distance away from the foundations of your house, keeping your home safe.
We also offer versions of these products to keep your crawl space clean and dry. Crawl spaces are subjected to the elements even more than basements, and water in the crawl space will not only grow mold and mildew, but the odor and allergens will quickly travel into your home through your floors. Thrasher's crawl space vapor barriers will quickly and effectively solve this problem by sealing your crawl space!
If your home has high radon levels, the time to act has already passed. According to the EPA, radon in a home above 4.0 pCi/L is a cause for concern, as radon gas is responsible for tens of thousands of cases of lung cancer in the US alone. And because it can only be detected by specific devices, radon detection and removal require professional assistance.
In order to keep families in Bellevue, NE safe, Thrasher offers radon mitigation systems designed to work with any home. Because every home is unique - radon enters in different ways and ventilation systems vary - our radon specialist will inspect your property and come up with a solution guaranteed to remove radon and stop it from re-entering. If you know radon levels in your home are high, or if you haven't had it looked at in a while, get in contact with Thrasher today.
