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 just 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, NE 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, and 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.

Whether you require repairs for a crawl space in need of some tender love and care, or you’d like to avoid crawl space issues in the future, give the professionals a call. We offer free estimates for clients in the Papillion area and throughout Nebraska.

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. We have offered top-quality foundation repair services in the Papillion area since 1975, and we’d love to add you to our growing list of fully satisfied customers!

Professional concrete leveling & repair services in Papillion

Concrete Repairs

Concrete, while strong, is not a permanent structure. Like any building material, concrete is prone to degradation over time and will require additional support and repairs as the elements take their toll. Driveways crack or succumb to frost heaves, sidewalks rise or sink depending on weather and soil conditions, and garage floors chip and crack after years of wear and tear. If you’re experiencing issues like chipping, cracking, or sinking concrete anywhere on your property, we can help!

Thrasher Foundation Repair is your local concrete leveling and repair expert, offering customized solutions and products tailored to meet your exact needs. We can stitch cracks in your garage floor, raise and level concrete on your sidewalk or backyard patio, and so much more.

Larry and Deborah R. are proud homeowners in Papillion, NE and want their house to stand the test of time so they can continue live there long into the future. Their garage was experiencing differential settlement, which means the garage was settling and leaning away from the home. With time it will continue to get worse, so they decided it was time to have it repaired. They chose Thrasher because they were familiar with our reputation of providing permanent quality solutions.

To begin the project, System Design Specialist Wyatt Simon arrived at the home in Papillion to perform a thorough inspection and determine possible solutions. Larry and Deborah opted to have our team install push piers to lift and stabilize the sinking garage. Our push pier installation involves the excavation of soil on the exterior of the house to place the piers onto solid bedrock to support the structure. After the installation was complete, our team cleaned up the entire site and returned the landscaping to its original state. All bushes were replanted, and grass seed was planted to help revive the lawn in places it needed to be removed.

Larry and Deborah couldn’t have been more thrilled with the outcome of the project. They were impressed with Thrasher’s efficiency and dedication to providing a quality solution. We were able to restore their peace of mind and help protect their greatest investment.

For the concrete we started with leveling the whole driveway and then applying NexusPro Joint Sealant to seal of the joints and then applied Sealant Pro over the top as a protective layer for the concrete.

Diane K. buried a downspout over a year ago and noticed a large crack in her driveway and right next to the driveway a sunken spot appeared in her yard where the soil had washed away. Worried that the crack would cause future problems, she wanted an immediate solution that would take away the worry.  She had previous work done with us and felt comfortable in our work.

System Design Specialist Corey Nelson went out to her home. He was able to identify that the large crack on the left side of the driveway would continue to wash the soil out and also cause the middle part of the driveway to settle as well. We used PolyLevel to fill and level the void. Then applied caulking to the joints with NexusPro Joint Sealant.  Diane was relieved that this work would prevent the concrete from settling and was happy with the project.

Homeowners Rich and Greta C. were having problems with their driveway. Concrete slabs were sinking, and cracks were forming and over time it kept on getting worse. Worried about the appearance and the effect this would have on their home, they decided it was time to see what concrete repair solutions were available. Familiar with Thrasher and recommendations from others, they gave us a call.

System Design Specialist Michael Romanek went out to their home in Papillion, NE to start with an inspection. He was able to see that there was settlement and cracking due to a drain spout that was dumping water onto driveway, causing the soil to wash away. We were able to fix this by leveling the driveway with PolyLevel, bringing the settled areas back up to the original level. Then we closed and sealed the joints and cracks with NexusPro Joint Sealant. To protect the driveway, we also applied SealantPro to the whole driveway. All of the downspouts were buried, so they would drain away from the driveway.

 Rich and Greta were extremely pleased with the outcome and glad they didn’t have to replace any of the concrete!
