Permanent basement waterproofing in Council Bluffs

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:

  • Basement sump pumps
  • Interior perimeter drainage systems
  • Wall and floor crack repair
  • Basement dehumidifiers
  • Radiant & vapor barriers
  • Insulated basement wall panels
  • Egress windows

If you've noticed water in your basement, there's no time like the present to call in a professional for repairs. Thrasher offers free estimates for basement waterproofing in Council Bluffs, IA – schedule yours today!

Authorized foundation repair specialists

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:

  • Helical/push pier systems
  • Wall anchors
  • Shotcrete
  • Crawl space jacks
  • Polyurethane concrete slab leveling

Remember to seal and encapsulate your crawl space

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:

  • Crawl space dehumidifiers
  • Crawl space sump pumps
  • Vapor barriers
  • Access doors and access wells
  • Crawl space structural supports

A sealed crawl space will lead to a healthier, drier home – there's no reason not to make this investment!

Use PolyLevel for concrete leveling

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:

  • Lightweight - Won’t add weight to existing soil
  • Waterproof - Won’t wash out
  • High-capacity - Lifts heavy loads
  • Minimal disruption to your slab and property
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Great for leveling sidewalks, driveways, pool decks

Council Bluffs, IA radon testing and mitigation

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.

If you need help with basement waterproofing, foundation repair, crawl space encapsulation, concrete leveling, or radon mitigation, Thrasher is your best choice in Council Bluffs, [city_page:state abbrev] or areas nearby. Schedule your free estimate with us today!

Job Stories From Council Bluffs, IA
Settling Foundation Solved by Push Piers in Council Bluffs

Over the years Roger P. saw that the foundation on his home was cracking quite a bit due to settlement.  It had finally gotten to the point where the stair step cracks were getting out of control.  It so happened that days after deciding something had to be done he got a flyer in the mail from Thrasher Basement Systems showing past jobs with the same issues.  It was fate. 

After giving Thrasher a call, Cole Hothan came to give his professional opinion.  He suggested that Push Piers be installed to slowly lift the foundation and eventually will make it come back to normal.  Push Piers work by being connected to the walls that are settling and driven into the ground hydraulically until a suitable loading bearing stratum is encountered. 

Foreman Jason Wilson installed the piers and Roger is now living in a safe home and no longer has to deal with the stress from his settling foundation.

Crawl Space Foundation Crack Leads to Water Issues

Homeowner Rebecca S. noticed a sizable crack in her foundation wall that was leaking water into her crawl space.   Even though it only happens during heavy rains she knew this was something that could not wait to be repaired.   Referred by her mother-in-law, she gave Thrasher Basement Systems a call. 

Thrasher crawl space expert Deon Theone came out to inspect the foundation and determined that it would be best for foreman John Mace install a few products.  They agreed on putting in a CleanSpace liner, Drainage Matting & SmartDrain.  The Drainage Matting is installed over the dirt and under the CleanSpace, it creates a drainage space that allows water to make its way to the SmartDrain.  The SmartDrain alerts of a leak and drains the water until the leak can be repaired.  CleanSpace is a 20 mil. liner that protects against mold, mildew & is tear resistant.  

John installed two SmartJacks which is a support system to help reduce more cracking of the foundation.  Rebecca can now live without worry of water coming into her crawl space thanks to the great people at Thrasher!

Water and Mold Damage Drywall in Council Bluffs

Jon & Michelle L. have a partially finished basement with major water damage to the drywall.  They were very concerned about the health risks of the mold growth that was forming. They were fed up with fighting a losing battle with their mess of a basement.  Good thing a friend suggested Thrasher Basement System, they would soon be the answer to Jon & Michelle's basement worries. 

Basement waterproofing specialist Matt Caniglia came out to give the couple an estimate that would suit their needs.  He suggested that Juan Matos come with his crew to install a WaterGuard drainage system.  A perimeter drain system that would guide water in the basement to the TripleSafe sump pump, which is one of the best pumps on the market. It has a second pump and a battery back up sump pump for safety during power outages.  In addition, Juan installed a SaniDry dehumidifier that covers up to 2500 sq. ft. and removes moisture from the air to make the home mold and mildew free. 

With all of these things combined, Jon & Michelle can finish their basement without worry of water damage and health risks due to mold.  This is all thanks to Thrasher Basement Systems!
