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.

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 Grand Island. Contact us today to schedule yours!

We offer the following basement waterproofing products and solutions:

  • Interior drainage systems
  • Dehumidifiers
  • 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!

Concrete Repair in Grand Island, NE

This homeowner was experiencing sinking slabs around their property. They had the idea of replacing the slab in the driveway but still wanted to know what it would take to repair. System Design Specialist, Ryan Ball, came out to meet with them. Ryan did his inspection, looking at why the concrete would be sinking, and came back to the homeowner with a solution. Ryan explained that we do not offer replacements, but we do repair. We lift, level, and stabilize the concrete with products that give a permanent solution. These products are waterproof, preventing water from getting under the slab. After hearing this solution, the homeowner knew this would be the best solution for their concern. We sent out our installation crew and got to work. We used our PolyLevel to lift and level the concrete and NexusPro to seal the control joints. The homeowners loved the final product and appreciated us showing up to do the work we said we would do.

Wall Support in Grand Island, NE

These homeowners were moving into their new home and wanted to make sure the walls in their home were supported. They heard of Thrasher and our reputation from their realtor, so they called to set up an appointment. System Design Specialist, Joe Dearth, came out to meet with them. Joe did his inspection and found that wash out and dry out from years of weather cycles caused the block foundation to crack at the frost line. Joe took these findings and went back to the homeowners. To combat this issue, we secured the wall with 6 Geo-Lock anchors, which are plates installed to the wall with long rods that are installed into the yard. Over time they can be adjusted to help straighten the wall back out. The homeowners loved this solution and we sent out our installation team. There is no doubt the have the peace of mind the need for 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.
