Foundation Crack Repair in Overland Park, KS
This Overland Park foundation repair job included the installation of foundation piers, as well as epoxy crack repair.
A qualified foundation repair contractor or structural engineer should be consulted to determine if a crack in your foundation is merely cosmetic or of a more serious nature.
The goals for this residence were to achieve a minimal lift, to stabilize the structure on the east and south foundation walls, and to close the large crack on a corner. Thrasher and the consulting geotechnical engineer determined that resistance piers would be ideal to provide supplemental support in this situation.
The photos below show the large diagonal crack that had appeared on the corner of the foundation wall. The crack gaped open a half-inch or more.
Thirteen resistance piers were installed along the interior of the east and south foundation walls. Twelve linear feet of urethane injection was used to fill and seal the large crack after the piers were installed. The piers were hydraulically pushed into the soil beneath the home until a predetermined load-bearing stratus was reached.

Foundation Repair and Waterproofing in Nemaha, IA
Brad T. is a homeowner in Nemaha, IA and was experiencing some issues with his foundation walls. The failing foundation was allowing water to seep in through the cracks and harming the living quality of the environment. The excess moisture was causing mold growth and a damp atmosphere in the basement. In search for a permanent solution, Brad gave Thrasher a call because of our reputation and excellent customer service.
System Design Specialist Jordan Comstock arrived at the home in Nemaha, IA to undergo a thorough inspection on the foundation walls. Jordan determined the walls were experiencing stage-two wall failure that was causing them to bow inward and allow water to infiltrate the space. In addition, water was also entering through the cold joints of a foundation add-on in the late 70’s. To combat these issues, Brad chose to have Thrasher install a combination of our waterproofing and foundation products. We began by applying our CleanSpace waterproof barrier to the full height of the foundation walls and a TripleSafe sump pump system to drain the water effectively. Then, our PowerBrace wall support system was installed to stabilize the bowing foundation.
Brad was thrilled to have his homes foundation issues repaired and a thing of the past. Thrasher was able to not only restore his foundation walls, but also his peace of mind knowing his basement is a safe place once again.
