Maintaining Your Home Exterior

Check the roof from a distance

Broken tiles falling off not only means your roof needs work, but it is unsafe. Use binoculars or a safe vantage point to spot the problem.

Inspect gutters on a rainy day

Check your gutters during rainfall, which will make any leaks or blockages easier to identify. Clear these blockages once the rain stops.

Don’t neglect the window putty

Sunlight can wear down window putty and cause leaks. If there is only small damage to putty, use all-purpose filler on any cracks.

Apply new render to exterior walls

Cracked render looks ugly but is easily solved when in small areas. Remove loose render, allow the wall to dry and then apply new render.

Repair any broken brickwork

Bricks can erode over time and need repairing. Take time to scout suppliers for bricks that closely match yours, but avoid second-hand bricks.

Lifting a Settling Driveway Concrete Slab in West Omaha

The T. family residence was built in 1985 with the original 18-foot wide driveway slab still in place. Over time, the area of the driveway nearest the garage had settled 5 inches down and towards the garage. This slab settlement created trip hazards when walking in and out of the garage, and made it awkward when the homeowner entered or exited the garage with her vehicle. In addition, the slope of the driveway slab was directing water toward the home rather than away from it, promoting further slab settlement and potentially future basement water problems and foundation damage. Thrasher Basement Systems proposed a polyurethane injection system, PolyLEVEL, to provide an economical, quick and effective solution for lifting the homeowner’s driveway slab. PolyLEVEL is a two-part urethane that when combined expands into a rigid foam used to fill voids, stabilize slabs and lift concrete. Once injected through small, penny-sized drilled “ports” in a slab, a chemical process converts the urethane product into a strong, rapidly-setting foam material.
