Job Stories From Council Bluffs, IA
Basement Waterproofing in Council Bluffs, IA

Robin had gotten water in her basement and did not want to deal with it anymore. Her husband had been the one to take care of things and once he passed away, she wanted to have a permanent solution. After doing some research and asking around, she knew that Thrasher was the best option to help her. System Design Specialist, Tony Taylor, came out to help him. Tony did his inspection and found water was coming through the cold joints and running across the basement floor. To help combat this, we installed WaterGuard and TrenchBrain in the basement to collect the water coming up through the cold joint. The WaterGuard also assists with getting the water to the sump pump, which is discharge the water at a safe distance. Robin was very happy with this solution, and we know she has peace of mind for her home. 

Waterproofing in Council Bluffs

This homeowner had started living on their own for the first time in a while, and was experiencing some water coming into the basement. She had heard some really good things about Thrasher, so she looked up reviews and gave us a call. System Design Specialist Nico Lemmers, came out to meet with them. Nico did a survey of the area and saw that the water was coming in through the cracks in her foundation wall. Together, the homeowner and Nico decided on a solution. They decided the best solution would be installing Cleanspace and WaterGuard that is linked to the TripleSafe Sump Pump. Cleanspace is our vapor barrier that keeps out moisture and lets water collect and filter into the WaterGuard. WaterGuard is our drainage system that collects water from the Cleanspace and from the cold joint. It then flows the water into the sump pump and the sump pump discharges the water at a safe distance from the house. The homeowner loved this solution and there is no doubt there is no more need to worry about water intruding the basement! 

Foundation Repair in Council Bluffs, IA

This homeowner has a berm style home in the outskirts of Council Bluffs. She had been seeing issues getting progressively worse over the years and knew she needed someone out. She knew the Thrasher name from advertisements over the years, as well as recommendations from family and friends, so she gave us a call. System Design Specialist, Tim Wurgler, came out to meet her. After doing the inspection, Tim determined that the bowing in her walls were from wet clay soil expansion. She was having cracks in her bedroom wall and bathroom. Tim proposed we use our wall anchors to stop the wall from bowing in anymore. This area of her home was finished, so wall anchors were the best option to not disturb the finished areas. Wall anchors are comprised of plates on the walls and rods going through the plate, wall, and into the ground on the other side. Overtime, it is possible to tighten the rods to straighten the wall back out. This homeowner knew she could not prolong putting this project off any longer, so we sent out of installation team! She was very pleased with the outcome. There is no doubt she is feeling more at peace in her own space now!  

Gutter Shutter Protects Porch on barn in Council Bluffs Iowa.

Wayne and Kathy have a barn on their property with older trough style gutters, and they are concerned about water getting into the barn.  They use the barn to store their "toys" and also have a bedroom/bathroom in there that their granddaughter is moving into and living in while attending Iowa Western. The old gutters that they had on the barn were corroded and sagging.  They could only do one downspout for the entire run because otherwise they would be sending water onto the driveway area that has poor drainage and turns into an ice rink in the wintertime.  When the gutters sagged, they would overflow and drip on the patio/entrance area. 


We used Gutter Shutter to direct the water to the back of the barn and make sure they stayed pitched correctly. They had an interesting situation that a normal K-style gutter wouldn't solve.  Gutter shutter was the right solution for them because it's stronger and won't clog up and won't pull away.  We can get the water where they need it without them having any ice or dripping problems in the future. 


He said that the project went well. The crew came out on time, told the customer what they were going to do, cleaned up after themselves (he mentioned that he saw an installer drop a sheet metal screw and figured it would end up in his tire, but then he saw him pick it up and was impressed that they picked up such a tiny screw).  He also said that they were easy to talk to.  Andrew, the team lead explained everything really well.  What they did, and what the customer could expect.  Kathy also really liked the crew.  Wayne said that Andrew was "the best" and "fabulous" and "I'd want him on any of my projects".

New Gutters Installed in Council Bluffs, IA

Homeowners Nicole and Ian G. are planning on staying in their home long term and are looking to do some projects around the home to keep it in the best shape possible. Their home was lacking gutters and so they decided to call Thrasher to see what we could do about gutter installation.
