Waterproofing in Lincoln, NE

After moving in, she had found there was water coming in from a few areas of the home. She gave us a call and our System Design Specialist, Marlon, came out to meet with her. Marlon did his inspection and found there was a lack of waterproofing system to help keep her home safe from water intrusion. There was water coming from the cold joints and a crack in the middle of the floor. To combat this issue, we added WaterGuard to collect the water from the cold join all around the perimeter and a lateral to collect the water coming from the cracks in the middle of the floor. This system then allows the water to flow to the sump pump and out of the home at a safe distance. The homeowner loved this solution and was very happy knowing she would not have to worry about cleaning up water again.

Foundation Repair in Lincoln, NE

This homeowner wanted peace of mind as she was planning on selling her home this spring. She was worried the new wall failure would negatively impact the sale of the home. She knew of Thrasher and our reputation, so she gave us a call. System Design Specialist, Deon Thoene, came out to meet with her. Deon did his inspection and found the foundation settlement was due to unstable soil. Lincoln had experienced dry weather which could have helped the foundation settle. To combat this issue and fix it permanently, we installed push piers to both stabilize and lift the affected area of the home. The push piers provide support for the failing portion of the footing. This homeowner loved this solution and appreciated Thrasher going through the process with her. There is no doubt she has the peace of mind she needs for selling her home.

Wes did his inspection and found cracking on the wing walls near the driveways and some of the concrete slab were starting to sink underneath the other slabs. This was being caused from street creep putting pressure onto the driveway. To combat this issue we installed a compression guard in her driveway to eliminate the pressure from being pushed into the garage slabs.

Tony got on the roof to see the gutters and noticed he had decent gutters that were in good shape, they just did not have a cover. Tony went back to Robert and proposed we install our Raindrop gutter guard. This will keep debris from building up and filling up his gutters while still allowing water to be redirected off his roof. Robert loved this solution, and we got out our installation team. Robert is fully taken care of knowing he does not have to get on his roof to clean his gutters anymore.

Foundation Repair in Lincoln, NE

This homeowner was planning on staying in this home for another year, and did not want to run into issues when it went on sale. He did his research ahead of time and knew he would only trust us due to our reputation. System Design Specialist, Coley O'Halloran, came out to meet with him. Coley did his inspection, and found they had a tipping foundation wall in one area. Water weight was stacking up on the foundation wall, as well as expanding soils caused the load to overpressure this wall and cause it to tip. Coley took these findings and came back to the homeowner with a solution. We fixed this permanently by stabilizing the wall with anchors. Anchors can address and stabilize a tipping wall by installing the plate to wall with the rod going into the yard. Overtime, this can be tightened to straighten the wall back out. There is no doubt this homeowner has the peace of mind knowing he will be able to more easily put his home on the market when the time comes.

The dry soil shrinking beneath the home caused the foundation to settle. Coley took these findings back to the homeowner with a solution. They decided on using piering to fix the problem permanently. This would help keep the home from settling more from washout and dryout. The homeowner loved this solution and we got to work. There is no doubt they have the permanent fix they needed, and will not have to worry about this issue again. 

Driveway Repair in Lincoln, NE

This homeowner was experiencing some sinking near his garage. He knew if he did not get this fixed in a timely manner, it could potentially cause more harm to his driveway, garage, and possibly foundation. He gave Thrasher a call and System Design Specialist, Caleb Spradlin, came out to help them. Caleb did his free inspection and saw the concrete on his driveway was sinking due to the dry out of soil from the dry year we have had. Caleb went back to the homeowner with these findings and a solution. Together, they decided on lifting, leveling, and stabilizing the concrete with PolyLevel, and sealing the joints with NexusPro. Both of these products are waterproof, so they will help prevent any water from getting under and washing away more soil. The homeowner loved this solution and we sent out our installation team. We know this homeowner has the peace of mind he needs without having to worry about his driveway sinking anymore. 

Concrete Repair in Lincoln, NE

This homeowner living in Lincoln, NE was having major settling and cracking issues around her driveway causing many tripping hazards around the home. She had been skeptical about having the spots fixed, she simply didn't think that it could be done. After talking to our team about the project and having Thrasher explain the process and exactly how we could fix it, she felt comfortable moving forward and trusted the team. 

After our inspection, it was clear to the crew that there were many spots of the driveway that had been washed out causing the soil under the concrete to move away leaving voids for the slabs to fall into. We used our PolyLevel foam to spray down under the concrete to fill those voids that were left and raise the concrete back into the original place. PolyLevel foam expands to lift and supports the slabs without adding weight to the load-bearing soil underneath, it is also waterproof meaning it won't wash out or dry out. 

After the work, this customer no longer had the tripping hazards causing her problems before. She was very pleased with the process and the team, she let us know she would be recommending us to everyone!

Waterproofing in Lincoln, NE

Our customers in Lincoln, NE would have large amounts of water in their basement every time they got large amounts of rain. With plans on selling their home in the future and not wanting to have to deal with the hassle of cleaning up water after every rainfall, they decided to call Thrasher to get their issues resolved. 

The crew came out and found they had a wall failure on one part of the basement creating the majority of their water problems, eventually, over time the pressure from the water could cause this wall to collapse. Our team decided to fix the problem areas with full-perimeter WaterGaurd and PowerBraces. WaterGaurd is an interior drainage system that drains any water getting into the basement to a sump pump and moves the water away from your home. Next, we used PowerBraces to support the falling wall, this is an I-beam that runs the full height of the foundation that is securely fastened to the concrete basement floor. Both of these systems installed now give support to the wall causing the water leakage and will drain other water points getting into the basement.

This customer no longer has to worry about a wet basement or a potential wall failure and can look to sell their home without these lingering issues around their home. 

Street Creep Repair in Lincoln, NE

This family was experiencing cracking in the basement floor. They were worried about foundational issues, and knew they needed them checked out. They knew about Thrasher and our reputation, so they gave us a call. System Design Specialist, Coley O'Halloran, came out to meet with them. While doing his inspection, he found the basement floor cracking was not problematic, but there were signs of street creep pushing up on their foundation wall. They already had foundation issues caused by street creep, so when they found their new expansion joints had failed, they knew they wanted to get it fixed. Coley went to the family with the concerns, and together they decided on a solution. They decided to use CompressionGuard to create a buffer from concrete expansion, giving long lasting results of foundation and concrete protection. They also decided on the Concrete Protection Solution which includes Polylevel to lift, level, and stabilize the concrete, and NexusPro to fill in and seal the cracks and joints. The family was very happy with these results and we know they have the peace of mind they need! 

Mold Prevention in Lincoln, NE

This family had big plans for the near future. Their son was moving out, and they wanted to refinish the basement. They had be battling water issues for a while, and water finally starting entering the other side of the basement. They knew they needed to get to the root of the problem to get rid of this water issue, as well as give peace of mind to potential mold growth. They previously have had Thrasher out, so they gave us another call. System Design Specialist, Coley O'Halloran, came out to meet them. Coley inspected the property to properly determine the best solution to their problems. Coley found the water coming in through the cold joint. As water stacks up next to the foundation, that water puts hydrostatic pressure on the foundation cold joint. When the pressure gets high enough, the water forces its way through the bottom of the wall and onto the basement floor. Coley explained this to the homeowners and helped them understand that problem would only get worse if they didn't fix it right. A main concern was existing mold in the home, the homeowner understood if it was not fixed properly and they refinished over a leaking wall, the mold would only continue to grow behind the walls. Together, the homeowner and Coley decided on using WaterGuard and Cleanspace. Cleanspace is a plastic, tarp like material that is very durable and waterproof. It collects any water coming through the cracks in the wall and sends it down to the WaterGuard. WaterGuard is our drainage system. It gathers the water from Cleanspace and from the cold joint and sends it to a sump system so it can be discharged out of the home at a safe distance. Since the homeowner was particularly worried about mold, they decided on a SaniDry Sedona to ensure the health of the home and the homeowners is in the best possible shape. The homeowners loved this solution, and we sent out our installation team. There is no doubt they do not have to worry about mold or water any more and they can get started to refinishing the basement! 

Foundation Repair for a Church in Lincoln, NE

This church had a tough time finding a building for their congress. When they found this building, they were so excited, but knew they needed long term foundation support. They called Thrasher because church goers had heard of our reputation, and knew we could help. System Design Specialist, Flavio Gonzalez, came out and meet with them. Flavio found all of the walls in the church had some type of deflection, or bowing. Flavio proposed we a combination of different products that could stabilize the walls, and overtime straighten them back into place. We installed Wall Anchors as well as Power Braces. Both of these products are installed onto the walls, and help support and hold weight to stabilize the walls. Overtime, they can help straighten the walls back into place as well. The church felt so relived after, knowing they could hold a congregation without worries of the walls caving in.  

Concrete Repair in Lincoln, NE

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.

Basement Waterproofing and Wall Support in Lincoln, NE

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.

Gutter Replacement and Crawl Space Repair in Lincoln, NE

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.

As part of the project, we installed GeoLock Wall Anchors on 3 of the walls and on the fourth wall, installed PowerBraces. We also installed CleanSpace to encapsulate and insulate the crawl space to save energy. The customer was thrilled to have the foundation supported and save on his energy bill.
