A wet basement will lead to nothing but trouble over time. Most homeowners know there's an issue if their basement floods after heavy rains, but there are actually several other troublesome signs of moisture in the basement that can be harder to detect. These possible signs and symptoms of basement water problems include:
If you suspect that your home is suffering from any of these issues, it's time to call in a professional like Thrasher to take care of water in your basement and mitigate any damage done. We install a variety of basement waterproofing products to permanently remove water and moisture from your basement environment.
Our high-volume sump pumps and perimeter drains collect and discharge water away from your home, while our energy-efficient dehumidifiers work hard to keep your basement air moisture-free. We can also install other products to make your basement more use-friendly, such as basement wall coverings and egress windows. All of our offerings are designed with the basement space in mind, so they're made with inorganic materials that can't grow mold.

Because most of your home's foundation isn't visible above ground, it can be hard to determine if there's a problem with it. However, if you've noticed cracks in walls or floors, sagging floors, bowing walls, or windows or doors that stick, it's safe to say that you may have a foundation issue such as foundation settlement. Over time, foundation troubles will only get worse, lessening the value of your home and increasing the cost of repairs.
Here at Thrasher, we are a part of the Foundation Supportworks dealer network, which gives us access to the industry's leading foundation repair tools and techniques. We use a variety of foundation repair products to stop foundation settlement and other problems; examples of these products include:
If you're not sure that your foundation is up to the task of supporting and stabilizing your home, a Thrasher foundation specialist will be more than happy to inspect your property and come up with an affordable, nonintrusive solution.
Another crucial below-the-home feature is your home's crawl space. Crawl spaces used to be designed with vents – or were sometimes left open to the outside entirely – because builders thought that the outside air could act to dry out the space. Unfortunately, we now know that between rain and humidity, there's too much moisture in the air for this to be a good idea.
Many crawl spaces suffer the consequences of this type of building design, leading to mold and rot, structural decay, and even pest problems. In turn, mold and mildew create unsafe breathing conditions for family members, especially ones prone to allergies, and rot can lead to sagging support beams that are supposed to hold up the floor above.
Today, companies like Thrasher recommend sealing and encapsulating your crawl space to prevent these issues from occurring. The products we use to block the outside air from reaching or affecting your crawl space include:

Does your property have sunken, bumpy, cracked concrete slabs? Concrete is usually used to form your driveway, sidewalk, steps, garage floor, pool deck, patio, and many other features across your home. Shifting, weak soils, combined with the heavy weight of concrete, can lead to concrete settlement over time. Sinking concrete is not only an eyesore, but it can also become a tripping hazard.
Here at Thrasher, we use the trustworthy PolyLevel method of lifting and leveling concrete. A superior alternative to traditional slab jacking techniques, PolyLevel uses a lightweight polyurethane foam that reacts and expands after it is injected into the ground via a small hole. This expanding foam is strong enough to lift your concrete slab back to its proper place. PolyLevel concrete repair also offers other advantages:
Thrasher would be happy to inspect your property and see if PolyLevel is the right solution for you!
Do you know how much radon is in your home? Radon is a dangerous gas that forms from the breakdown of uranium in the soil beneath your home. When radon levels get too high, it can lead to serious illness for your family, as radon can eventually lead to lung cancer.
It's crucial to monitor radon levels, but it's impossible to do without the right equipment. That's why Thrasher offers radon testing and removal services for homeowners throughout Nebraska. We can help you determine if radon is present in your home, and we can install a unique radon mitigation system to get rid of radon and prevent its re-entry.
No matter how big or small your home's problem may seem, Thrasher has the experience and expertise needed to get the job done.
