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.
This customer's home had a crumbling foundation. We came in and installed our EverBrace system. This took on the load weight of the home to prevent complete failure of the home's foundation.
This customer owned this rental property that was experiencing bowing walls in the basement. They knew they had to fix this issue for several reasons: to protect their investment, prevent further damage to the home, and avoid having to displace a tenant if the walls were to collapse.
Mike Portal, a System Design Specialist at Midwest, went out to the home to conduct an inspection. He found that the walls were bowing in, and each foundation wall was in various stages of wall failure.
To solve this problem, we installed PowerBraces. This system is made from galvanized steel beams that will not rust and will straighten the walls with time. In just two days, the Midwest team secured and stabilized all walls in the basement. This was especially crucial for the homeowner to make sure we weren't invading the tenant's space for an extended period of time.
This customer was grateful we were able to save the failing foundation walls and felt the Midwest team went above and beyond to exceed expectations.

This homeowner was finishing his basement and was worried if he covered the walls, he wouldn't be able to see if the walls continued to move inward. He did not want the newly finished basement to be ruined from bowing walls. He knew of Thrashers reputation, and was confident that we would take care of him, so he gave us a call. System Design Specialist, Mike Portel, came out to meet with him. Mike did his inspection, and saw the walls were bowing in and at stage 2 wall failure. This was caused from the clay bowl effect where water builds up around a foundation when it rains, causing excess pressure on the walls. Overtime, the walls will start to bow in and can lead to complete wall failure. Mike took these findings and went back to the homeowner. He proposed we use our Geolock wall anchors to hold the walls back and allow him to move the walls back with time using our tightening bolt. The homeowner loved this solution and we sent out our installation team. We are sure this homeowner has the peace of mind he needs to finish his basement.
