PowerBrace System Saves Wall from Complete Failure in Arthur, IA
Edwin O. and Jessica D. noticed that one of the walls in their house was starting to fail and contacted their landlord. In the home was a homemade brace system and concerned for the safety of the home, the landlord gave us a call.
System Design Specialist Corey Little was able to identify the wall was on stage three of wall failure with three inches of deflection and daylight was coming when looking near the top. We started by fixing the wall by installing PowerBrace System which was able to permanently stabilize the home. Since the wall had so much damage, we had to Shortlock the wall. Then we interlocked rebar to the PowerBrace System and sprayed shotcrete giving them a new wall without having to replace the old one.
Not only was Corey able to come up with a solution that allowed them to say in the home the entire time and was the least invasive. The home now feels safe again and the finished product looks great!

Basement Foundation Repair in Holstein, IA
Michael and Amy J. in Holstein, IA have plans on remodeling their downstairs and make the basement more usable. Before starting any projects, Micheal and Amy wanted to get their foundation looked yet. The basement was always damp, so they gave Thrasher a call to learn more about solutions for their home.
System Design Specialist Corey Little went out to their home. He was able to see that all of the walls were in stage 2 of wall failure. There was also street creep happening in the driveway and pushing into the home’s foundation. The humidity level was also very high in the basement, which was causing a damp feeling.
The crews started with the driveway by installing CompressionGaurd, a 3-inch wide expansion joint to give them a buffer from the street expanding. For the basement walls, a combination of CarbonArmor and Geo-Lock Wall Anchors were installed to stop the walls from coming in. Also for a safe exit out of the home, we put in an Egress Window. A SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier was installed to control the humidity levels. Michael and Amy were impressed with the crew’s efficiency.
