Basement waterproofing & foundation repair in Papillion, NE.

It’s no secret that our town is one of the best places to live in Nebraska. Look anywhere around the internet and you’ll likely see good ole’ Papio showing up on list after list of “hidden jewels” and “secret places to retire”. At Thrasher Foundation Repair, we’ve had the pleasure of serving the Papillion area for decades. Our experience in foundation repair, basement waterproofing, concrete repair, and more dates back to 1975. It seems crazy to think it, but when we got our start in the industry, Papillion was home to a mere 6,000 residents. That’s a far cry from today’s tally of around 20,000, and a sure sign that people are starting to figure out just how good we have it here.

Papillion rests at the southern fringe of the Omaha Metro, about 20 minutes from the Old Market on a day without traffic. Omaha and the surrounding cities emerged near the confluence of the Platte and Missouri rivers and quickly became a stop for westward travelers and fur traders before they attempted to cross the plains. Papio Creek, running through the center of town, provided the city its namesake. French explorers, noticing the abundance of butterflies on the creek’s grassy banks, named the city after the winged creatures, the French word for which is papillon.

Of course, not everything is rainbows and butterflies in Papillion. Being in such proximity to two rivers known for flooding, the possibility of water intrusion leading to foundation and basement damage is a consistent threat. The Big Papillion Creek, Walnut Creek, and Midland Creek have flooded to the point of forcing evacuations on several occasions, and the Papio Creek Watershed is considered to be the most flood-prone area in the entire state of Nebraska. With the possibility of heavy water damage and the area’s easily-eroded loess-based soils, it sure is nice to know that the experts at Thrasher Foundation Repair have you covered.

Over the decades, our experts have honed their skills in the full spectrum of foundation repair and basement waterproofing techniques, expanding into and perfecting solutions in the realm of concrete slab leveling and repair, gutter installation, crawl space repair, and more. We specialize in both preventative measures and repairs after damages have occurred. We don’t just know how to get the job done - we know where we’re doing it, and who we’re doing it for.

Reliable basement waterproofing in Papillion

Floods have had major impacts on the Omaha metropolitan area over the decades, notably in 1959, 1964, and 1965. Storms in each of these years brought with them walls of water that swept homes off their foundations and caused millions in property damages.

Crawl space repair & encapsulation services in Papillion

Much like basements, crawl spaces are prone to damage from water and water vapor intrusion. If not properly maintained, a crawl space can succumb to the damp darkness beneath your home, inviting pests, molds, and foul odors. Over time, these issues can lead to the decay of supporting beams and other spaces under your home, degrading your home’s structural integrity.

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation

In many cases, it’s easy to forget about your crawl space. If you don’t access the area regularly, and no major issues develop, this critical part of your structure can fall by the mental wayside. At Thrasher Foundation Repair, we take our crawl space repair and encapsulation work very seriously.

Expert foundation repair services in Papillion

Simply put, your home’s foundation is the most important structural component of the entire building. It’s the first piece installed during the homebuilding process and serves as the backbone for the structure. Over time, foundations can be damaged by the elements. Hydrostatic pressure can cause cracks in foundation floors and walls, resulting in seepage. Upward pressures from beneath the floor slab can draw water vapor and other unwanted gasses through the floor, weakening the structure. Heavy rains, freezing and thawing cycles, shifting soil conditions - all of these play their role in weakening your foundation over the years.

Helical Pier Installation

In Papillion, we know that weather can change in an instant. While we don’t have the harshest winters in the country, our city has its share of freezing, thawing, and heavy seasonal storms. Our soil is loess-based and tends to erode during heavy water events. The soil is quite porous and offers the benefit of hasty drainage, but it can also drain away moisture too quickly, occasionally leaving areas of soil beneath your home in a weakened state.

The experts at Thrasher Foundation Repair are prepared to repair any foundation in Papillion. If you’re experiencing bowing walls, cracks around door and window frames, sinking floors, or tilting chimneys, then you know it’s time to call in the professionals.

Job Stories From Papillion, NE
Concrete Repair in Papillion, NE

Greg B. knew his concrete wasn't great. However, he was planning on moving so didn't want to address it. After deciding that moving wasn't in their current plans, he decided that it was time to address the concrete and do something about it. He didn't want the problem getting worse and wanted to know any water would be staying away from the home. He has had Thrasher out in the past, so he knew he trusted us. He knew of our warranties and service behind our projects, and gave us another call. System Design Specialist, Tony Taylor, came out to meet with him. Tony did his inspection and noticed the control joints had cracked open and dirt was getting washed out. Greg's concrete also had signs of street creep on an interior wall from the street pushing through his driveway onto his house. Tony went to Greg with these findings and a solution. Compression Guard was used to stop the street creep and create a true expansion joint. PolyLevel was used to lift a couple areas and stabilize the remaining areas from future settling. NexusPro was used to seal up the joints and cracks on the driveway. Both of these products are also waterproof, helping prevent any more washout. Greg loved this solution and there is no doubt they will be worrying about their concrete any longer. 

Driveway Repair in Papillion, NE

These homeowners have been in their home for 25 years and they plan for it to be their forever home. They wanted to preserve the value of the home and prevent any further future issues. They knew that concrete issues left unaddressed will only get worse, so they called Thrasher! System Design Specialist, Britton Wood, came out to meet with them. Britton found they had settling and cracking concrete slabs outside their garage door that were being caused by several things. There were poor compaction of soil, water washout of underlying soil, and dry out from lack of moisture during dry periods over the years. These create voids underneath the slabs that cause them to settle from a lack of support beneath. Britton proposed we use our 3-Part Concrete Protection System. PolyLevel foam to lift and level the settled slabs, NexusPro to seal up the joints and cracks, and Sealant Pro to protect the surface of the concrete against pitting, flaking, and spalling. The homeowners loved the idea of this, and we got started! They were very happy with the results in the end. They thought the crew worked very hard and everything looks great! We were happy to help a happy couple protect their concrete of their forever home! 

Wet Finished Basement in Papillion, NE

Imagine you are living in your dream home, trying to complete your plans of finishing your dream basement, when you find a huge crack on the wall that connected from the basement to the garage. These homeowners lived this. There was water coming in from that crack in addition to every wall in their basement. They knew they needed to pause their plans and call Thrasher, so they did! System Design Specialist, Tim Wurgler, came out to meet with them. Tim inspected the wetness and found that street creep compromised the cold joints, letting the water into the home. Street creep is when the concrete from the street expands overtime, pushing concrete on the sidewalks and driveways towards the home. This can also lead to cracking and uneven concrete. Tim proposed we do a full perimeter Waterproofing System, TripleSafe Sump Pump, Compression Guard, and Nexus Pro.  The Waterproofing System along the perimeter of their basement would include CleanSpace and WaterGuard. CleanSpace is a waterproof plastic shield that catches the water from the walls, and leads it into the WaterGuard. WaterGuard is our draining channel that leads the water into the Sump Pump and out of the home. The Compression Guard is for the end of the driveway, to prevent street creep, and NexusPro is a caulking like solution to fill in the cracks of the driveways. The NexusPro also acts like a seal to prevent the water from seeping into the foundation. The homeowners were so excited how quickly we could come to a solution and get the project started and finished. There is no doubt they are having the best time finishing their basement so they can host their friends and family! 

Water in Basement in Papillion, NE

These homeowners in Papillion first noticed water in their basement three years ago and has come in twice since then. To protect and prevent damaging their finished basement, these homeowners knew they had to find someone to fix this issue. At first, they considered hiring someone to just inject epoxy into a crack in the wall. But this method would have just moved the water entry point to a different location and could have potentially made the problem harder to fix. That's when they decided installing a waterproofing system was probably the best bet and most long-term, sustainable solution to their problem.

System Design Specialist, Eric Wulf, went out to their home to find out where that water was coming from. He found out water was entering the finished basement through the cold joints where the floor meets the wall. And it was also entering through a crack in the wall that was visible from the exterior. He also found there was a 16" gap between the foundation wall and the drywall. So here's what would happen. Water would enter the basement and then flow over the floor to the sump pump. Which then created a wet environment behind that drywall. 

To fix this problem, we removed the drywall, studs, and about 12" of the floor in the affected area. We then installed Waterguard under the floor and a Cleanspace vapor barrier on the wall to cover the crack and direct the water into the pipes under the floor. Now, these homeowners have peace of mind and no longer have to worry about what's going on behind the drywall.
