Basement waterproofing & foundation repair in Grand Island, NE.

As your local foundation repair, basement waterproofing, and concrete leveling & repair experts, Thrasher Foundation Repair is proud to provide our services in the great city of Grand Island! Our gem of a city, nestled on the north bank of the winding Platte River, has long served as a central travel and commerce hub for the great state of Nebraska. Our home has been a hidden jewel in the middle of the American heartland for decades, charming folks from all around with its quaint atmosphere, quiet living, and thriving downtown. Of course, we can’t forget the Nebraska State Fair, now can we?

Grand Island is the fourth-largest city in Nebraska, with an estimated population of 51,000 cornhuskers. The city serves as the seat of Hall County, positioned just north of Interstate 80 as it cuts east to west across the southern half of the state. In the mid-1800s, Grand Island was among the last supply stops before travelers made their attempt at crossing the plains to the west, a dangerous trek made so by unpredictable and harsh weather.

This same weather is known to affect the area around our town, often causing floods of various sizes and strengths, swelling the Platte River and the creeks and streams surrounding it. Northwest Grand Island has faced severe flooding for decades, with overflows from Prairie Creek, Silver Creek, and Moores Creek occurring periodically. In Grand Island, and in the state as a whole, soils are typically made up of a substance known as loess, characterized by high drainage capacity but a propensity to erode under consistent pressure from moving water and wind. As such, foundations, sidewalks, and basements across the city can experience settlement, soil heave, erosion causing soil degradation, and damage from flooding.

At Thrasher Foundation Repair, we’re ready to help you combat the elements and solve all of your concrete repair, basement waterproofing, and foundation repair problems. Our professional teams are trained to identify the root cause of an issue, prescribe the proper solution, and see the work through with the highest degree of professionalism. When you’re ready to prepare your home for future problems or fix the ones you have, it’s time to call in the experts.

Foundation repair services in Grand Island

Your home’s foundation is the key to a sturdy and long-lasting structure. If a foundation is damaged over time and becomes compromised, the structural integrity of your home can become jeopardized. Thrasher Foundation Repair has the products, solutions, and experience to properly support and repair your home’s damaged foundation, offering a variety of fixes to the spectrum of foundation issues commonly found in Grand Island.

Foundation Repair Helical Piles

Grand Island’s combination of easily-eroded soils and a history of flooding can lead to shifting soils, cavitation underneath a slab, and movement of the earth below your home.

Durable basement waterproofing services in Grand Island

Basement Waterproofing

In Grand Island, you’re no stranger to the threat of water damage from flooding and infiltration. Particularly in the rainy months of May and June, where rainfall averages roughly 4.3 inches each month, the chance of flooding and water intrusion in your basement is at its highest. Spring can be a very wet time, as the Platte River swells with runoff and snowmelt making its way south and east from the southern Rocky Mountains.

Thrasher Foundation Repair has the tools to not only alleviate current moisture issues in your basement, but to help prevent future damages from flooding, seepage, and other forms of water infiltration. Weather on the plains and flatlands that Grand Island occupies can change in a snap, and your local basement waterproofing experts are ready to help keep your home dry and safe from the elements.

We offer no-cost, no-obligation basement waterproofing inspection and service estimates across Nebraska. Contact us today to schedule yours!

We offer the following basement waterproofing products and solutions:

  • Interior drainage systems
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Window wells
  • Sump pumps
  • And more!

Expert concrete repair & leveling services Grand Island

Concrete slabs are always prone to degradation, regardless of their location or role. Sidewalks and other load-bearing slabs feel the impacts of both the forces exerted from above and the ever-changing sub-slab conditions below. In Grand Island, our loess-based soil has a tendency to wash out under the right conditions, and our city’s proximity to a flood-prone river often provides said conditions. Low winter temperatures, freezing and thawing cycles, floodwaters, and spring rain all contribute to the damages concrete slabs often endure, including cracking, sinking, flaking, and staining.

Concrete Repair

From pool decks to driveways, sidewalks and garage floors, Thrasher Foundation Repair specializes in all manner of concrete repairs. We offer innovative solutions for the repair of sinking or cracked concrete slabs that provide superior results to traditional mudjacking or concrete replacement. Through the harshest weather and wildest temperature swings, our concrete repair services will stand up to the elements and anything else the world will throw at them.

We take pride in installing no-mess and low-stress concrete leveling, concrete sealing, and concrete repair systems for our clients in Grand Island and the surrounding areas. We offer free inspections and estimates - schedule yours now to learn about all we have to offer!

This homeowner wanted a transformation for her Egress Well. The older one she had was draining water into her basement, and she knew that she needed a new solution before it caused further problems. She had used our services before and she loved the experience, so she gave us a call for her new project.

We sent Service Technician Brandon Headrick to see where the window was leaking from, and determine what solution we could use for her window. Brandon found that the old Egress Well was not installed properly, so it wouldn't be able to protect the window from water getting in like it was supposed to. After discussing this with the homeowner, she wanted our team to install a new Egress Well with a new cover because she knew we would do it right.

Our team installed the new Egress Well and cover as the homeowner wanted, and she was thrilled with the results. She is so happy that her window isn't leaking anymore and she said that she can't thank the team enough for their work. Check out her new Egress Well and cover!

This homeowner had a hot tub in the middle of his patio. The concrete under was starting to settle, and he did not want water pooling up next to his home. He was having troubles getting anyone to come out to look at this. He saw Thrasher's ads, and decided to give us a go. He liked that we were local and family owned! System Design Specialist, Brock Scott, came out to meet with him. Brock determined the concrete along the home was settling due to fill soil, and water collection. He also noticed the weight of the hot tub was not helping. Brock proposed we seal up the joint along his home with NexusPro Join Sealant, as well as his expansion joints to prevent the area around them from settling. He also proposed we use PolyLevel foam to lift and level the concrete back to where it belongs. Even though the hot tub could not be moved completely out of the way, we were still able to get this project completed. This homeowner was so happy with the finished product! There is no doubt that he is relaxing in his hot tub, worry free of any more settling or unwanted water collection.

Deb I. and her siblings recently inherited their parent’s home in Grand Island, NE, and they wanted to have it fully inspected to ensure it’s in proper condition. They called Thrasher for their home repair needs because of our reputation and recommendations from surrounding people. During the inspection, System Design Specialist Brandon Headrick noticed the home’s crawl space had severely high moisture and humidity levels.

To combat the crawl space issues, Deb opted to have Thrasher encapsulate the entire space. Our team began by completely clearing out the crawl space, and then applied our CleanSpace moisture barrier to all floors and walls. To drain the captured water, the crew installed our SmartDrain system that alerts the homeowner if there’s ever a plumbing leak, and if there is it automatically drains the water into a dry well beneath the CleanSpace waterproof barrier. These two products work together to perform the ultimate crawl space encapsulation in order to keep it dry year-round.

Deb and her siblings were more than pleased with our crawl space solutions. They were impressed with the efficiency and display of professionalism from our team and were relieved to have their parent’s home fully repaired. Thrasher was able to restore their peace of mind by improving the quality of their new home.

Patio Repair in Grand Island, NE

This homeowner was having troubles getting different companies out to do the work he was looking for. He had water pooling up next to his home with a heavy hot tub in the middle of the patio. He did not want leaking in the joints between the house and concrete either. He saw our ads and decided to call us up. System Design Specialist, Brock Scott, came out to meet with him. He found the concrete along the home was settling from fill soil and the collection of water. He also determined the weight of the hot tub was causing it to settle as well. Brock proposed to use our PolyLevel foam and NexusPro to lift and level the area of concrete, and seal the joints. The PolyLevel is waterproof, so there would not be any more washout. Even though the hot tub could not be moved completely out of the way, we were able to lift, level and seal the joints and concrete! This homeowner was very happy with the results and there is no doubt he is relaxing in his hot tub with no worries of water getting where its not supposed to. 

Driveway Repair in Grand Island, NE

This homeowner was tired of water pooling along his home every time it rained. He didn't want people tripping on the settled slab on his front sidewalk either. He was aware of Thrasher's reputation of quality work and called us. System Design Specialist, Joe Dearth, came out to meet with him. Joe found that within this homeowners very large concrete driveway, there was washout causing the slabs along the side of the home to settle, making a perfect spot to pool. It was clearly dissipated along his foundation and evaporated, causing further damage to the concrete. Joe proposed we use our PolyLevel to lift and level the concrete, and NexusPro to fill in the joints and cracks. The great thing about PolyLevel is, it is waterproof! So, it will not washout by water over time. After the project, this homeowner was so happy with the job. There is no doubt that he is worry free of any more water pooling, or tripping hazards.
