Concrete repair, basement waterproofing, and foundation repair in Wichita, KS.

Wichita is an American city in the truest sense. Our town has been a center of frontier trade, a landmark locale for aviation development, and a state-wide industrial hub since our incorporation in 1870 and before. We at Thrasher Foundation Repair are proud to serve this lovely enclave, providing the very best services in foundation repair, basement waterproofing, concrete repair, and more. In a nation that prides itself on growth and innovation, yet still makes efforts to remember the past, our city’s transition from “Cowtown” to the “Air Capital of the World” continues to bring us pride. And of course, there’s still plenty of Cowtown around if you’re looking for it.

Like many western towns born of the mid-19th century American frontier, Wichita grew around the confluence of two rivers, the Arkansas and Little Arkansas rivers. The history of the area is rife with human activity dating back to roughly 3,000B.C., including the native American tribe from which the city derives its name - the Wichita people. Trader Jesse Chisholm established a trading post along the banks of the Arkansas during the Civil War, planting the seeds for what would become a central trading hub in the post-war years. Texans drove their cattle north towards the critical rail junction of Wichita, which hosted no less than eight railways for this purpose as of 1915. These same railroads allowed for an influx of travelers and hopeful settlers, who soon discovered oil deposits in nearby Butler county. With a population that grew ten-fold from 1880 to 1910, and the money flowing from the oil deposits, it wasn’t long before the burgeoning aviation industry flocked to Wichita’s flat grounds to advance the science of flight.

As your local concrete repair, basement waterproofing, and foundation repair experts, we’re proud to offer our city the very best services in the business. Wichita lies in the middle of an unobstructed floodplain and straddles two rivers with a history of flooding.

Expert concrete leveling and repair services in Wichita

Concrete Leveling

Concrete is a primary building material in any contemporary city. While concrete is a strong, resilient structural element, even the strongest constructions are prone to all manner of degradation over time. In Wichita, we are no stranger to harsh, cold winters. Whether it’s your driveway, a residential street, or the foundation of your home, freezing and thawing cycles rank among the top causes of concrete fatigue and degradation in our area. Our soil is a clay-primary loam, known for swelling when exposed to excess moisture. With that in mind, winter and the spring thaw are particularly harsh on our concrete constructions throughout Wichita.

If you’re experiencing sinking or chipped sidewalks, cracks in concrete basement walls, or a sinking driveway, we can help! Thrasher Foundation Repair is your local concrete repair and leveling contractor, offering nearly 50 years of experience in the business. Our teams of trained professionals are equipped with the knowledge and top-flight equipment to get the job done right, the first time.

Local basement waterproofing experts in Wichita

Basement Waterproofing

If you’re a homeowner, then you know how important it is to keep your basement dry. Moisture infiltration into the basement of your home can cause damage of all sorts, from mold growth to cracking and decay of concrete walls and floors. Wichita has no real topographical features to impede the coming and going of storms, and we’re used to some serious thunderstorms during the middle months of the year. Historically, these storms have been a frequent cause of flooding, with the earliest recorded event occurring in 1867. Major floods have followed periods of heavy rain at decade-intervals since then, and have continued to be an issue to this day. While we haven’t experienced anything like the 1904 flood, where some 30-percent of Wichita was submerged by flooding from the Little Arkansas River and Chisolm Creek, water can still be a constant pressure on your home and its foundation.

That’s where we come in. Thrasher Foundation Repair is Kansas’s premier basement waterproofing contractor, offering decades of local experience in the field. We know our city and its people, and have the right products and solutions to cater to any need. We install sump pumps, build drainage systems, line walls with moisture barriers, and more. If there’s a Wichita basement that needs waterproofing, then we’re the right folks to call!

We offer no-cost, no-obligation basement waterproofing inspection and service estimates across Kansas. Contact us today to schedule yours!

We offer the following basement waterproofing products and solutions:

  • Interior drainage systems
  • Dehumidifiers
  • Window wells
  • Sump pumps
  • And more!

Lasting foundation repair services in Wichita

Helical Pile Foundation Repair

Foundations - the backbone of any structure. A home’s foundation is the first component built in the construction process and is the most important for the long-term health of any building. A damaged or stressed foundation can cause tilting chimneys, cracks near windows and door frames, sinking floors, and a general loss of structural integrity.

Causes for such issues are varied, possibly including settlement, heave, and simple decay from time under pressure. Wichita’s soil is primarily clay-based, which is a prime candidate for causing heave. Clay soil expands when exposed to excess water over time, and returns to its original density during dry spells, which can lead to significant uplift pressures followed by the creation of vacuous areas of soil beneath your home’s foundation.

Whatever the cause, Thrasher Foundation Repair has the expertise to tackle any foundation repair situation. Using the best tools and products in the business, our experts will customize a solution to fit your needs exactly.

We offer free estimates for clients in the Wichita area. Call now to get yours!

Crawl space repair & encapsulation experts in Wichita

Not a basement but more than a simple slab, a crawl space isn’t somewhere you’re likely to enjoy spending much time in. While your crawl space may not be the focal point of your home, it is an area with a disproportionate responsibility for the overall health of the structure.

Wet, dirty, pest-ridden crawl spaces are a source of poor air quality, a safe haven for mold growth, and a danger to the long-term strength of your home. One may spend little time thinking about the space between their floor and the earth, and you can’t blame them - other issues, like cracks in walls, present themselves in a more obvious fashion that calls for immediate attention.

Thrasher Foundation Repair believes, and our decades of experience in crawl space repair and encapsulation supports our belief, that a healthy crawl space is a healthy home. With our products and expert installation process, we can effectively encapsulate and repair any crawl space, ensuring long-term strength, stability, and cleanliness in your home. We’ll support sagging floors, clean neglected crawl spaces, and provide you with steady peace of mind. When you know your crawl space has been taken care of, that’s one less thing to weigh on you as you go about your daily life.

We offer free estimates for clients in the Wichita area and throughout Kansas.

Our crawl space repair system includes:

  • Crawl space vapor barrier
  • Crawl space insulation
  • Crawl space support posts
  • Crawl space dehumidifiers
  • Crawl space sump pumps
  • And more!

John E. was looking to finish his basement and create more living space, but he was having trouble with water coming into his basement. Water would be coming in and the temperature in the basement would never get above the 50s. The pervious homeowner had work done by Thrasher, so John decided to give us a call and learn more about solutions for foundation repair.

Service Technician Kerry Lehman went out to John’s home to see what we could do. Upon inspection Kerry found the foundation wall had deflected so far that the exterior wall was no longer on the sill plate. There was a gap letting outside air pour into the basement. The wall cracks were also allowing water to come in and keep the basement wet.

The crew started with excavating the outside and straightening the wall with the GeoLock anchors. Three of the walls were also waterproofed with WaterGaurd and full-height CleanSpace was also put on the walls to keep the water out.

Homeowner Joan F. was tired of the musty smell in her home. She would notice it when she was gone for an extended time and then notice the smell upon return. She was ready to fix this permanently and gave Thrasher a call.

System Design Specialist AJ LaVoie went out to Joan’s home. He was able to see that there was water intrusion in the crawl space that was causing the musty smell. The crew installed a full perimeter drain line system in the crawl space and tied together with a SuperPump system. We then encapsulated the entire crawl space with CleanSpace to permanently separate the outside from the rest of her home. We finished this project by burying her discharge line from the sump pump. Joan was happy to never have to the musty smell in her home again!
