Driveway Repair in Fort Calhoun, NE Driveway Repair in Fort Calhoun, NE

Expanding and contracting soil can cause concrete driveways to shift, settle and crack over time. Rather than letting the damage continue, making repairs can extend the life of the driveway and prolong the need for full replacement. Take a look at the before and after shots on this driveway we repaired in Fort Calhoun, NE.

For this project, we used PolyLevel® to raise the concrete and create a safe, even surface. After leveling, we used silicone caulking to seal the joints. This prevents water penetration, and protects the soil underneath the driveway against erosion and washout - the two main causes of cracked, heaved and uneven concrete.

Job Stories From Fort Calhoun, NE
The Mysterious Wet Corner

David and Sharry of Fort Calhoun, NE noticed a wet spot in the corner of their basement floor and became concerned that there was too much water damage. As they looked into it, they discovered that the leak was caused in part by a leaning wall that was cracked and allowing in moisture which was creating the water damage. The sought out professional help and found Thrasher.

Thrasher installed a TripleSafe sump pump to get the water out of the basement. WaterGuards and an IceGuard were also installed to direct the water from the pump out and away from the foundations of the house so that it wouldn’t cause a problem anymore. The second part of the project was to fix the leaning wall. First two 9’ PowerBrace beams were installed with three 6’ extension rods. Then, Geo-Lock wall anchors were installed with them to ensure that the walls would straighten and correct themselves over time.

The projects as a whole took six days to complete. Since David and Sharry also purchased a membersih to the ThrasherCare Club, they will most certainly find security in their home for years to come. 

Basement Walls Crack Under Pressure

Frederick and Charlotte of Fort Calhoun, NE noticed cracking on the wall on their basement. It was a result from poor foundations under the wall that were causing it to crack under the pressure of the floors above it. As well, as a result from the poor foundations and bad soil, the basement floor was sinking a bit as well. They knew that they needed to contact professionals to get the job done; they contacted Thrasher.

Thrasher installed push piers all around the walls of their basement. The push piers are place under the walls and they are secured in the soil underneath so that they can provide extra stability. As well, they installed PolyLEVEL which gets injected under the concrete basement floor. PolyLEVEL is an alternative to traditional methods of fixing sinking concrete slabs in that it gets injected under the slab instead of removing the entire slab, which is much more expensive.

The project took a total of seven days to complete in its entirety. Frederick and Charlotte no longer need to worry about their basement floors and walls thanks to Thrasher. 

Basement Walls Stabilized with Geo-Lock

Jeremy of Fort Calhoun, NE noticed that his basement walls seemed to be sinking quite a bit and that he needed to find a way to get them straightened quickly. Bowed or leaning walls can cause all kinds of foundational damage and can be detrimental to any house. When looking for a solution, he called Thrasher.

Geo-Lock Walls were installed for the walls of his basement that were leaning so that over time, they would correct themselves and he could avoid any damage to his foundations. As well, he had eight extensions installed so that he could have even more support for his walls.

The project took only one day to install. Jeremy is happy now that his walls have been corrected and his house is no longer at risk for foundational damage. 

Family Works To Purify Their Home Of Radon

Duane and Jill of Fort Calhoun, NE were concerned that their house might be at risk for containing the harmful chemical radon. Radon, as they were aware, has many dangerous and harmful effects, one of the pronounced among them being cancer. They called Thrasher to get help to make sure that they were not at risk.

Thrasher came in and installed a basic radon mitigation system as well as additional penetration. By installing the radon mitigation, they were ensuring that they cleansed the air of any radon. Duane and Jill opted to get a 10 year warranty as well to make sure that their home was going to be protected for years to come. The installation only took one day.

Later, they contacted Thrasher again saying they wanted to install a Breath EZ filter to help further cleanse the air in their house. Thrasher was accommodating and came back seven months later to service the radon mitigation system and install the filter. Duane and Jill can sleep easy knowing that their family will be safe from radon for years to come. 

Exterior Walls Saved By Geo-Lock in Fort Calhoun

David and Beth of Fort Calhoun, NE had a wall on the side of their house that was leaning and bowed. They knew that this could be very destructive to their foundation if they left it unresolved. Bearing this in mind, they searched for a suitable contractor and choose Thrasher.

They took action with help from Thrasher and had four Geo-Lock wall anchors installed as well as eight 6’ extension rods. The Geo-Lock wall anchors ensure that the bowed and leaned walls will correct themselves over time. This will prevent a large number of other foundational problems that came come as a result to bowed walls.

The project only took one day to install, and now David and Beth can sleep well knowing that their walls will keep them from having serious foundation problems in the future.
