Dave H. has been wanting to finish his basement to add more living space. He noticed that water was entering in multiple areas, and it was affecting the project. Looking to continue with finishing the basement, he called Midwest to learn more about waterproofing his basement.
System Design Specialist Tyler Dopheide went out to Dave’s home. He was able to identify the areas that water was coming in and come up with a water proofing solution for the basement. The crew started with installing WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement and then installing a Triple Safe Sump Pump, so then the water would have a place to go and not collect in the basement. Then to keep the walls dry, we encapsulated the space with CleanSpace. Dave was very happy with how the project turned out and gave us a 10/10.
Jennifer C. recently purchased a home in Leon, IA with plans to restore the house to increase its value. The home is over one-hundred years old, and the basement is experiencing extreme wall failure. It has a brick foundation with mortar joints that were deteriorating, and the walls were bowing inward. Familiar with our reputation, she gave us at Thrasher a call to permanently repair her foundation.
System Design Specialist Tyler Dopheide arrived in Leon, IA and began inspecting the foundation of the home. For extreme wall failure, our team utilized the Shotlock Restoration System and PowerBrace Wall Support to prevent the walls from collapsing. Shotlock is combined with our GeoLock wall anchors in order to stabilize the failing foundation. The PowerBrace System is then installed to tighten and make the bowing walls sit more vertical without any external excavation. These two products paired together can stabilize even the most severe failing walls.
Jennifer was thrilled with the appearance of the basement walls and felt liberated knowing the foundation was secure. She now has the confidence needed to begin the remodeling process of her newly purchased home.
New homeowners Kirk and Sue W. recently moved into their new home. Ready to start remodeling, they wanted to fix the basement so they could use it as storage. One of the walls had multiple cracks and they wanted to reduce as much moisture as they could from entering the home. Kirk and Sue decided to give Midwest a call.
We sent System Design Specialist Tyler Dopheide out to the home. The foundation wall that had multiple cracks in it was allowing water to enter the basement, which was allowing moisture to enter the home at a high level. We first installed PowerBraces to reduce further wall failure. Next, we installed WaterGuard and CleanSpace to reduce water and humidity from entering the home. Once the project was completed Kirk and Sue felt comfortable and reassured their basement would be free of further wall failure and water damage!
