Chad Johnson from American Waterworks

Being a home owner, husband, and father, I have a great understanding of the importance of a dry basement and sound foundation. As a former small business owner of a construction company, I understand the specific needs customers have. American Waterworks has given me the opportunity to use my existing skills and tailor them to the needs of homeowners with a unique problem.
American Waterworks recruited me, because of my extensive construction related background and success helping home owners diagnose and solve the troubles they were experiencing with their homes. I’ve been thoroughly trained and have earned the highly esteemed titles of “Certified Waterproofing Professional” and “Certified Foundation Professional”.

American Waterworks is a certified member of the Basement Systems network of dealers. Basement Systems is the world’s largest affiliation of basement waterproofing contractors. American Waterworks is also a proud member of National Radon Defense and Foundation Supportworks. All our representatives are fully certified to preform inspections and repairs. We have over thirty products to solve the problems that yesterday’s systems presented. We at American Waterworks help our customers with problems ranging from groundwater seepage to basement dehumidification, from bowed or cracked basement walls, to foundation and concrete slab settlement, as well as radon testing and mitigation. 

I enjoy meeting with homeowners and helping them solve their basement water problems, enabling them to get more out of their homes. In my free time I like playing sports with my sons and spending time outdoors golfing and grilling with my wife, Angie.

    Cracked Foundation Wall Stabilized in Osseo, WI

    Ken H. in Osseo, WI had two walls in his basement that were cracked and bowing inward. He was concerned that the bowing walls were putting a lot of pressure on his foundation, and he wanted to have it taken care of before it got worse. He contacted the foundation repair experts at American Waterworks, and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Chad Johnson, to his home to give him a free estimate and provide him with a solution. Chad recommended that we install wall anchors to permanently stabilize his walls and Ken agreed, so they scheduled the installation.

    Our production team installed 9 walls anchors along the two bowing walls. The anchors provide stability to the wall because they are drilled deep into the soil surrounding the home. The anchors also start to straighten the wall and the anchors can continue to be tightened over time, if need be. Our wall anchors are backed by a lifetime warranty, so Ken is glad he chose a permanent solution to protect the foundation of his home.

    Waterproofing Basement System Installation in Forest Lake, MN

    Stephen W. in Forest Lake, MN had water seeping into his basement and he did not have a sufficient sump pump to discharge the water from the home. He saw one of our waterproofing advertisements and decided it would be a good idea to get a FREE estimate to waterproof his basement.

    Our Design Specialist, Chad Johnson, went to his home to inspect the situation and to develop a solution. Chad determined that the best way to ensure that Stephen would never have to worry about a wet basement would be to install WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement and then install a SuperSump sump pump to properly expel the water to the outside. Stephen agreed that this was the right plan for his basement, so we sent a crew to install our system.

    The installation took a couple of days, but Steven will reap the benefits of this system for a lifetime. Since the installation, he has had a dry, clean basement. Our waterproofing system is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Stephen can rest easy knowing he invested in permanently protecting his home from water seeping into his home and causing damage.

    Doug G. in North Branch, MN had a dirt crawl space that was high in moisture and was letting energy out of his home, therefore wasting his money. A friend referred him to American Waterworks because they had previously had a great experience while working with us. Doug decided to check us out, and he contacted us for a FREE estimate. We were happy to send one of our Design Specialists, Chad Johnson, to his home to inspect his problem and provide a solution.

    Nicholas H. in Savage, MN had water leaking into his basement during heavy rains and when snow melts. The water was starting to pool in the laundry room and their old sump pump had failed. He saw an advertisement for American Waterworks in one of the local newspapers and he was glad to see that we are experts in waterproofing. He gave us a call and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Chad Johnson, to his home to give him a FREE estimate. Chad established that the best solution was to install a full perimeter of our WaterGuard drainage system and a SuperSump sump pump. 

    Nicholas was eager to get his basement waterproofed, so he set an appointment to have the system installed as soon as possible. Our production crew installed the WaterGuard drainage system around the entire perimeter of the basement, which guides any water seeping in directly to the newly installed sump pump. The sump pump then discharges the water outside of the home. Our waterproofing system is backed with a lifetime warranty, so it is guaranteed to keep his basement dry. Nicholas is glad he invested in a long-term solution to protect his home.

    Concrete Repair in Blaine, MN

    Margaret G. in Blaine, MN had a sidewalk leading up to her stoop that was sinking. She wanted to find an affordable, yet effective way to repair her concrete, so she started to look for a contractor to help her. She heard an ad for American Waterworks on the radio and was interested to learn more about our concrete repair solution, so she called us, and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Chad Johnson, to her home to provide her with a solution.

    She was pleased to learn that PolyLevel is a faster, more affordable, and durable option compared to traditional concrete repair. One of our PolyLevel experts, Troy Johnson, drilled penny-sized holes in the concrete slab in front of her steps. He then injected the PolyLevel foam until the concrete was raised to be even with the steps. Lastly, he sealed the cracks in the concrete with our Nexus Pro sealant. The process only took about two hours, and now Margaret will be able to enjoy a raised and level front stoop for years to come.
