Concrete Driveway Repair in Lincoln, NE
Janet is a homeowner in Lincoln, NE, and was struggling with a major dip in her driveway. Ready to get a long-term solution for the concrete, she decided to call Thrasher and learn more about our concrete repair process.
We sent System Design Specialist Christian out to Janet’s home. Part of her driveway had a large void underneath and that had allowed the driveway to settle. The crew fixed this problem by using PolyLevel to fill the void and lift the settled areas back up. Janet was thrilled with the overall experience!
Inconvenient Downspouts in Front of Steps in Lincoln, NE
Diane's discharge lines (from her sump system) were obnoxiously long, above ground, AND ran right in front of her front steps. Not only did it look odd, but it was also a significant tripping hazard. On top of that, she also had a downspout discharging directly onto her sidewalk, which would create an ice sheet that would get slick in the winter. So she called Thrasher, and we sent out Breyden Eckhout to do the inspection.
After looking at these issues, it was clear Diane needed Thrasher's help. Breyden proposed a solution and got our install team out to the house to get to work. We buried the discharge lines and downspouts underground using PVC and bubble pots to direct the water away from the foundation. This also took care of the trip hazards by no longer having them above ground in a high traffic area.
Diane was happy with the results and wished she had done it sooner!
Basement Foundation Repair in Lincoln, NE
Patricia N. is a proud homeowner in Lincoln, NE and has plans in place of this being here forever home. Thrasher has helped in the past with making this home the one that can stand the test of time by waterproofing the basement. During the annual maintenance, our team always performs a thorough inspection to make sure small problems aren’t going unnoticed, and therefore turning into bigger problems. Upon the inspection, System Design Specialist Wes Marshall noticed two basement walls showing signs of stage-two failure, caused by the soil surrounding the foundation. Fortunately, the problem was spotted in its early stage and Thrasher could provide a solution before it were to get much worse. Without hesitation, Patricia put her trust in Thrasher to give herself a peace of mind, and confidence that it was going to be done right.
Wes Marshall and his team arrived in Lincoln, NE to begin the project. Patricia opted to have them install our PowerBrace Support System to permanently stop any movement inward from the walls and reverse the damage over time. PowerBrace is a galvanized steel beam that runs the full height of the foundation and then is fastened to the concrete basement floor. It’s then attached to the floor joist using one of our brackets to give it the permanent security it needs. All installation is done internally and saves Patricia the stress of any external excavation.
Patricia N. was grateful that we were able to spot the failing walls early and provide a variety of solutions for her benefit. She was impressed with the crew’s wealth of knowledge and presentation to help her understand the process. Patricia is now stress-free and happy with her forever home.

Gary and Gail of Lincoln, Nebraska were planning to clean up their basement so they could make use of the space - a workshop, a workout room and possibly a guest bedroom. Before they could do that, they needed to stop water from leaking into the basement whenever it rained. The basement had already leaked 7 times in just the past 4 years, and they were tired of cleaning up the mess and not being able to do much with their basement space. In addition to a wet basement, the unencapsulated crawl space that ran beneath the rest of the home was damp, moldy, musty and unsightly. Enough was enough, so they called Thrasher.
It’s common to have multiple contractors provide quotes for projects like this, and that’s exactly what Gary and Gail did. We inspected the home, identifying the problem areas that were contributing to the water issues, and then presented Gary and Gail with our findings and proposed solutions. They both appreciated the thoroughness of the inspection, and how we were able to walk them through the details of how we intended to fix the problem, so in the end they chose to work with us.
To stop the water problem in the basement, we wanted to stop the water before it could collect around the homes foundation, and so we replaced the aging, clogged gutters with our clog-free GutterShutter system. For the damp crawl space we wanted to isolate this area from the damp earth, installing drainage matting and drain as well as CleanSpace vapor barrier to encapsulate the space and resolve the musty, damp air and smell.
Gary and Gail were very pleased with the final result. They shared with us that “Everything went well.”.Regarding the crew that did the work, “Really nice guys they did a great job. They were courteous respectful and proficient. The clean-up was Impeccable.”. Now these homeowners can finally make their basement the space they’ve always dreamed of.
Leigh H. In Lincoln, Nebraska wanted her basement to be a nice, comfortable place to entertain guests, as well as provide a guest room for her nephew to stay. She had noticed a little bit of water collecting in one of the corners in the basement and asked Thrasher and a few other contractors to come out and take a look. Some company estimators were in the home only a few minutes before declaring that the basement was fine, but Thrasher was more thorough.
After noticing some damage to the brick façade of the houses exterior, we checked to see if the house was settling. With little settlement detected, our system design specialist then checked behind the finished walls in the basement and found the root cause of the problem - failing basement walls. With one of the worst basement walls deflecting over 5”, water was finding its way in through the gap, causing not only water to leak into the basement, but also causing mold and rot behind the finished walls. A thorough inspection process is standard with Thrasher, and we were able to bring our findings to the homeowners attention and propose solutions to achieve her desired outcome.
Using our EverBrace wall support system on the most deflected wall, and a combination of PowerBrace beams and a wall anchor on the adjoining wall, we were able to stabilize the basement walls. Next, to address the water intrusion, we installed our WaterGuard interior drainage system along with a TripleSafe sump pump system and CleanSpace vapor barrier to ensure that water would be redirected out and away from the home. Finally, we installed a SaniDry dehumidifier to resolve the high ambient humidity in the basement, making the space more comfortable overall.
Leigh was extremely happy with the end result, and appreciated how thorough our inspection and explanation of the problem was. Now she can finish her basement with confidence.
A couple in Lincoln, NE, was dealing with water in their basement for quite some time. Their walls were experiencing failure and allowing water to seep in through the cracks in the foundation.

Brain and Teresa wanted to fix their foundation because this is the home they plan to live in forever. They knew that this was an issue but did not realize how bad it had gotten as this is a cellar room that does not get much use. They realized that they were at risk of the foundation walls caving in and knew they had to do something. Their house is built around a really old foundation. The original foundation is from the 1880s and is made of stone. There are 4 additions to the original foundation and one of them just has a frost footing. The foundation with the frost footing was putting weight on the stone walls and causing them to fail. There was 6 inches of deflection on the wall.
The reason they chose us was pretty interesting, Brian is an engineer and knows people in the industry. After the initial appointment, Brian asked his friends who he should go with. His friend is familiar with SupportWorks and said we were the best in the industry.
We fixed the problem with EverBrace. We used Everbrace because of the severity of the issue. The wall failure was to the point that this was our only option. This project was interesting because of how old the original foundation is and the cause for the failure. The foundation we fixed was 140 years old and it had 4 additional foundations built around it.
The customer said they were happy to have it done right and now they never have to worry about it again!
Chuck and his wife, Tammy, travel a lot for their work and could be gone for weeks on end. When they get home, they want to enjoy their finished basement and bar area completely without the worry of having their basement damaged by water intrusion after a rainstorm. They have already had to tear out the carpet and some of their belongings have been ruined when the basement has been flooded.
Water is coming through the cold joints - they have bad fill soil which has caused hydrostatic pressure to build up and force water through the cold joints. We installed our WaterGuard system with 2 sump pumps. They already had one in place, so we upgraded their sump system.
They were so excited to have a dry basement and now they don't have to worry about it being wet when they come home for weeks out working.
The customer was looking at selling their home in the near future. They needed to fix the concrete settlement on the driveway as there has been a significant drop-off form between the garage and the driveway. They wanted to prevent the problem from growing when they sell in a few years.
The home was experiencing significant street creep, sinking concrete, and big voids under the concrete. The street creep had progressed to the point that the garage's rear wall was pushed more than an inch out of plum. Some concrete replacement had already been done and settled again as well.
We installed CompressionGuard to prevent further street creep and reverse anchors to avoid the back wall of the garage from tipping over any further. We then used PolyLevel to level the uneven concrete and Nexus Pro Joint Sealant to seal the joints and cracks in the concrete.
He said that the crew was excellent. He was impressed with their work, especially the caulking, and believes that they have extended the life of his driveway. This was a severe problem that we could own the whole on. The concrete was way out of level with massive voids but not too damaged that any of it needed to be replaced. In this case, this customer wanted peace of mind for his time left in the home and cared enough to ensure it was done right for the next owner.
