Durable foundation repairs in Kansas City

Kansas City is known for its extreme weather fluctuations – and as stressful as it can be to prepare your family for the hot summers and icy winters, the foundation can be negatively impacted if not protected as well.

As the temperature and weather patterns change, this can cause the soil around the foundation to expand from moisture and freezing and contract when it is hot and dry. This can lead to foundation settlement, cracks from pressure, bowing walls, and other foundation problems. The high temperatures and lack of rain can also dry out the foundation, which can weaken the structure, cause cracks, and leaks.

But there is no reason to worry. Unlike other contractors, Thrasher Foundation Repair does not provide one-size-fits-all solutions. We understand that every home is different and depending on where you live in Kansas City, your problems may need a more personal touch. In fact, we have been providing customizable and permanent foundation repair solutions to homeowners since 1975. So no matter how serious the foundation damage may seem, you can trust us to provide repairs tailored to your home and will continue to protect you in future seasons!

Lasting basement waterproofing system in Kansas City

With Kansas City’s extreme weather fluctuations, there is plenty to worry about when keeping your basement dry and secure. Not only can expansive soils, foundation heave, and dry air cause leaky cracks in the below-grade space, but Kansas City is also a part of the humid subtropical zone, meaning the summers are long, hot, and humid. This is bad news for basements, as once outside air touches cold appliances, condensation forms, creating the perfect breeding ground for mold. Plus, outlying areas in Kansas City are subject to flooding, putting those homes even more at risk.

Being proactive is the best way to keep your basement dry and safe in the ever-changing Kansas City climate – and Thrasher Foundation Repair knows just what to do to help. We have provided reliable basement waterproofing solutions for homeowners since 1975, eliminating basement flooding and moisture intrusion problems and keeping their below-grade spaces dry for years.

Our basement waterproofing system includes:

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

Crawl space repair & encapsulation services in Kansas City

The crawl space can already be a nasty, humid place, creating the perfect breeding ground for mold and pests. But since Kansas City is known for its long, hot, and humid summers, this can be very detrimental to the crawl space. Plus, some areas of the city are prone to flooding – and if your crawl space isn’t secure, this could cause serious problems for your home. Once you factor in the extreme temperature fluctuations common in Kansas City, you could have quite the problem on your hands. The humid, hot summers and icy, cold winters can cause foundation heave and expansive soils, creating a weaker structure overall and causing leaky cracks in the below-grade space.

So when it comes to creating a dry and secure crawl space, trust the experts who have been providing these services since 1975. Our crawl space encapsulation and repair solutions seal off your space the elements and even stabilizes it, assuring a moisture-proof area that is protected for years to come.

Our crawl space repair system includes:

  • Crawl space vapor barrier
  • Crawl space insulation
  • Crawl space support posts
  • Crawl space dehumidifiers
  • Crawl space sump pumps
  • And more!

Concrete repair & concrete leveling experts in Kansas City

Kansas City's ever-changing climate can weaken your slabs, causing the load-bearing soils to contract, dry out, or even wash away. This means without sufficient support, the slab will start to sink and crack. The changes in temperature and moisture can also cause concrete to crack, flake, and stain. So if you’re tired of sinking, cracked driveways, pool decks, sidewalks, or other concrete slabs around your property, contact the concrete repair professionals at Thrasher Foundation Repair.

We offer simple, innovative solutions that are far superior to the standard mudjacking or concrete replacement. Plus, our solutions last all year round, withstanding harsh weather, extreme temperatures, chemicals, UV rays, liquid, debris, and more.

Owners of public buildings must be very cautious about having tripping hazards on sidewalks.

All concrete slabs settle – it’s a matter of when, not if, it will happen.

The Raytown School District has used Thrasher Foundation Repair on many occasions to maintain the safety of the sidewalks and flatwork around their schools and office buildings.

Owners of most public buildings are required to repair any public sidewalk or entryway that has more than 3/4″ differential movement from one piece of flatwork to another.

Thrasher was hired to eliminate any potential tripping hazards along the sidewalks and entryways at one of the district's office buildings. We were able to return all the concrete flatwork to the original condition without interrupting their working schedule or the facility's function.

Although we do not use or provide mudjacking services today, we provide a polyurethane injection system, PolyLevel, to offer an economical, quick and effective solution for lifting situations like these and residential sidewalks, patios and driveways.  

Sunken or heaved concrete slabs can present tripping hazards that you may be liable for as a homeowner. Concrete repair is essential to protect your driveway, sidewalk or patio for the future. 

At Thrasher Foundation Repair, we use PolyLevel® for concrete leveling because it's a fast and effective way to lift and stabilize sinking concrete. PolyLevel is a lightweight, strong high-density polyurethane foam developed by our sister company Supportworks and only available to an exclusive network of foundation and concrete repair contractors. It lifts and supports concrete slabs without adding weight to the soil beneath, and it's waterproof so that it won't wash out or dry out like traditional mudjacking material. It's environmentally friendly, too, with no environmentally harmful chemical leaching. Concrete leveling with PolyLevel expanding foam not only raises concrete slabs but also compacts the soil around them, creating a stable environment that will ensure that your driveway, patio or pool deck remains level into the foreseeable future.

Our comprehensive concrete protection system provides additional durability:

  1. Your concrete is lifted and leveled using PolyLevel® foam.
  2. Your cracked concrete and control joints are filled and sealed using NexusPro joint sealant.
  3. The whole surface is protected from the elements with a coat of SealantPro™, which permanently bonds to your concrete.

When you lift, level and protect your home's concrete, you can rest assured it will keep looking and working great well into the future — plus, you'll sleep better knowing you've got a five-year warranty.

When we visit your home for the first time, you can expect a thorough inspection and a detailed explanation of the concrete leveling solution we propose and why. We offer several levels of protection and transparent pricing to meet your specific needs. 

We use PolyLevel to lift and level concrete. PolyLevel polyurethane foam is pumped beneath cement slabs through tiny ports about the size of a penny. Initially, PolyLevel flows like water, filling even the smallest cracks and crevices in the soil. It quickly expands and hardens, lifting the concrete slabs above it and compressing the ground around it at the same time. PolyLevel is waterproof, so it will never wash out, and it won't degrade over time due to temperature extremes. It's environmentally friendly, too, with no ecologically harmful chemical leaching. Best of all, PolyLevel cures quickly, allowing your concrete to be used usually the same day.

Eric is a proud retired homeowner in Raytown, MO and plans to keep the estate as his forever home. However, Eric loves to travel and knows that if he ever wanted to sell the property a few issues would need to be taken care of first. Specifically, his driveway and surrounding concrete needed to be leveled and repaired to restore the property’s value. Eric was familiar with Thrasher and our dedication to providing the best solution. Looking for a company that does it right the first time, he gave Thrasher a call.

To begin the project, our System Design Specialist Tom Studer arrived in Raytown to perform a thorough inspection of the home. The driveway and sidewalks had multiple areas of settlement that had caused cracks and an uneven surface. The back patio had sunken areas that created a tripping hazard when entering the home. Both issues were caused by the soil underneath being washed out and not being able to support the weight of the concrete. This was solved using our PolyLevel foam to permanently lift and level the concrete. It’s a lightweight and waterproof solution that guarantees no soil washout in the future without adding any extra weight. This was then paired with our NexusPro sealer to fill all cracks and control joints to prevent any water from seeping through. These two products combined not only increase the lifespan of the concrete but enhance the appearance in order to increase the property’s value.

Eric was pleased with the outcome of the solutions Thrasher was able to provide. He was impressed with our ability to provide a quality customer experience, and with his concrete repaired Eric now has the confidence to live on in his forever home.

Bowed Wall Repair Using Steel Beams

Steel beams are installed vertically against the wall and anchored to the floor joists above and to the concrete floor below.

Thrasher Foundation Repair used steel beams to repair this bowing wall.

The front wall of this house was pushed in 5 inches due to improper drainage and grading. As forces of nature, such as moisture and frost, interact with the soil around your home, the soil expands. That expansion results in a constant inward force on your foundation wall until it can no longer support the pressure, causing cracking, bowing and tipping. This caused large cracks throughout the wall and allowed water to enter the basement. With the Power Brace installed(opens in a new window), the wall is stable and will not move inward. During the dry season, the PowerBrace can be tightened from the top bracket. By tightening during the dry season, the soil shrinks, allowing the wall to move back into place over time. This is a unique design created by Supportworks engineers and tested nationwide.  

This is the second house we have worked on for this customer. He was so pleased with the work we did on his home that he hired us again to work on his rental property.

Thrasher Foundation Repair is a trusted company for customers. They create such a positive experience that customers call to complete other projects. Or they call with concerns they are experiencing and eventually become repeat customers. A former customer contacted us for bowed wall repair in Kansas City. Thrasher Foundation Repair installed steel beams, aka "Power Braces," and a waterproofing system in a rental property after Thrasher lifted and leveled their driveway a few years ago.

PowerBrace system permanently stabilizes your home's foundation walls. Zinc-plated steel beams are custom-fit to your basement wall height and secured tight against your basement wall with brackets anchored to your basement floor and floor joists. PowerBrace's unique, patented design allows the system to be tightened over time, potentially reversing wall failure without invasive drilling or digging on the property. They are designed and manufactured right here in the USA by our sister company Supportworks. 

This is the second house we have worked on for this customer. He was so pleased with the concrete work we did on his home that he hired us again to work on his rental property. Now that's awesome! If this customer would sell this rental property, Thrasher's transferable warranty is offered to the new homeowner. Giving both the seller and the buyer peace of mind knowing Thrasher stands behind their work. With over 45 years of experience, engineering, hands on training, and lessons learned, Thrasher is the trusted foundation repair experts in the Midwest. Thrasher Foundation Repair serves homeowners across a four-state region, Kansas, Nebraska, Central and Western Iowa and Western Missouri. If you need a free estimate, don't hesitate to contact our office. Thrasher will send a local expert to your home. Even though we have offices across the Midwest, we thrive on hiring local. So, the specialist and crew who come into your home live near you! 

Thrasher's production crew began the repair cutting the beams to size so, over time, the wall could be pushed back into place. Before the team could install the beams, the interior waterproofing system was installed. The interior drainage system would be installed at the foundation wall base on top of the foundation footing to catch the water right at its entry point. The homeowner chose a sump pump that included three sump pumps. Two sump pumps that run off electricity and a battery backup pump. Now that the waterproofing system is in place, the crew could install the Power Brace brackets to the floor joist then fasten power braces to the floor and bracket. 

Once installed, the Team Lead did a final walk-through with the property owner answering questions and demonstrating how to tighten the Power Braces during the next dry season. If the homeowner cannot use the torque wrench at 80 pounds, a service tech can come out to do annual maintenance. During the yearly maintenance, the service tech will use a laser level and record the improvement benchmarks and tighten power braces. If something isn't right, he will make it right. He will also service the sump pump, cleaning out the pit from any debris, test the pumps, and clear the discharge lines. Having annual maintenance is vital before the heavy Midwest rains come to ensure the pump will work properly.
