Uneven floors, a musty smell and foundation cracks are all signs that your home could use a little help. Water that makes its way into a basement or crawlspace can cause significant damage to Eau Claire, WI homes. Water damage may seem like a little problem, but it can lead to expensive repairs if left untreated.
American Waterworks, a member of the Wisconsin Builders Association (WBA), has been helping homeowners in Eau Claire, WI protect their homes from the damage caused by settling soils, water, and other problems for more than 20 years. We specialize in foundation repair, basement waterproofing, and other services to benefit your below-the-home spaces and your property.
Over time your home’s firm foundation can suffer from changes in the soil. Even if foundation cracks are not visible, pressure from damp soil can lead to a structural failure. Some of the key signs of trouble are interior and exterior wall cracks, sticking windows and doors, bowing walls, and a sagging floor above a crawl space.
American Waterworks is a member of the Foundation Supportworks dealer network with access to top-quality products for foundation repair. For example, we use the SmartJack system to stabilize your crawl space support posts to fix sagging floors. Galvanized steel columns restore the proper support to the structure above the crawl space. Each SmartJack column can hold up to 60,000 lbs, and the system is cost effective and reliable.

A damp basement is the result of water seeping through tiny cracks and pores in the concrete. This moisture can promote mold growth and damage furnishings. Dry out your basement and reclaim your space with WaterGuard, the waterproofing system with the industry’s best guarantees. American Waterworks is part of the Basement Systems network, giving us the ability to provide the best basement waterproofing solutions.
As a resident of Eau Claire, WI, the soil under your home is susceptible to erosion caused by seasonal changes and a weak soil base. When the supporting soil is washed away, concrete begins to sink, creating uneven driveways and walkways around your home.
Slab jacking, concrete lifting, grout pumping, and slab leveling provide a temporary fix, but for a long-lasting solution, American Waterworks employs the revolutionary PolyLEVEL system for concrete leveling. Two liquids are injected beneath the damaged areas, seeping into every nearby crevice before expanding into high-density foam to hold unsettled soil, add support and return sunken concrete to its original position.
Crawl spaces are unseen areas that often conceal big problems. As water seeps in through foundation walls, the humidity in the crawl space rises. This invites mold and insects. It allows spores and other allergens into the rooms above. It can even damage your home’s structure, requiring expensive repairs. Some builders try to prevent this by installing vents in the crawl space. In Eau Claire, this brings in humid air during the Wisconsin summers, making the problem worse.
Reclaim your crawl space and protect your home with the CleanSpace Crawl Space Vapor Barrier System. American Waterworks wraps your crawl space with a reinforced liner to block moisture. This liner is mold resistant and guaranteed against material defects for 25 years, offering the ultimate solution in crawl space encapsulation and repair.
