              I was made aware of American Waterworks after I saw an advertisement on TV. Then, I went to a Home Show in Eau Claire and talked with the design specialist there. I also spoke with a few other people who have used American Waterworks in the past. The office staff was very nice and helpful. The design specialist, Chad, was wonderful. He answered all of our questions and got back to us when we called him. He knows his stuff and is very direct and honest. The installation process was good and quick! The crew was very polite, cleaned up after themselves, and were good, hard workers!! I would recommend American Waterworks to others, and am overall very pleased with our waterproofing project so far!

    Customer Testimonial

              We recently went with American Waterworks to fix our foundation. There was a bulge on one of the walls that made us very nervous that something bad was going to happen one day. We had a representative from American Waterworks come and look at the issue. He suggested that their geo-lock anchor system was the best route to take. We did have a few other companies come and look as well but we went with American Waterworks. And boy are we glad we did! The team was promptly on time and started to get to work right away. Throughout the time they were here they gave us updates about what they were doing, being very descriptive of the actions they were taking. The team was very professional and very awesome! Once they were finished they made sure to move back any objects they had to move and even cleaned up. They did such a great job! I highly recommend American Waterworks above any other company! We will continue to use them with any issues we have in the future. Once again, the whole team was very awesome!

    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.

She called American Waterworks and scheduled a FREE estimate with our Design Specialist, Chad. Chad went to Jean's house, thoroughly inspected her basement, and proposed the solution of our WaterGuard Below the Floor Drain and CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier.

Next, our crew installed our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier, which is designed to prevent water from seeping through the walls and save money on energy costs. To complete the project, our crew filled the open-floor gaps with river rock and applied a new layer of concrete over them.

He felt it was important to have a foundation repair expert take a look at it, so he gave American Waterworks a call.

The anchors can continue to be tightened over time, to continue straightening the wall.

    Steve O., a resident in Eau Claire, WI, had cracked foundation walls, causing him to worry about the stability of his home and the cost of replacement. Thankfully, he heard about American Waterworks and our foundation repair products, so he called our office line and scheduled a FREE estimate with our Design Specialist, Chad. Chad went to his home, carefully inspected his foundation wall, and drew up a solution of our GeoLock Wall Anchors. Steve was confident with the product and its warranty, so he went ahead with the installation and signed the contract. 

    Our Foreman, Juan, and his production team began the project by digging small holes outside of the home, beyond the foundation. From the inside of the foundation, our team inserted a long, metal rod to each hole outside of the home. At the ends of each rod in the soil, our team installed an anchor plate, which holes the rod in place underground. From inside the foundation, our team installed a GeoLock Wall Anchor to the ends of each rod to stabilize the foundation wall. This combination allows the wall to straighten itself out over time and because of the way our anchor system is designed, it can be tightened by the homeowner to ensure it is still doing its job. To complete the work, our team backfilled each hole beyond the foundation and compacted the soil. Steve was happy with the work that was done and had a good experience!

    Darrin K. in Wyoming, MN noticed that the moisture in his crawl space was damaging the beams that were supporting the floor. The beams had started rotting, which caused the floor to sag.

    Chad recommended having SmartJacks installed in the crawl space to support the beams. Darrin was comfortable with this solution, so our production crew installed 6 SmartJacks and 32ft of supplemental beams. Our crawl space structural support jacks, called SmartJacks, are made of galvanized steel for corrosion resistance and can support loads of more than 60,000lbs! Our SmartJacks are the ONLY crawl space support jacks that address problem soils, so the SmartJacks provide a permanent solution for rotting, sagging floor beams.

    Teri and Joel of River Falls, WI had water leaking into their basement and from one of their foundation walls. They did some research online and came across American Waterworks. They called our office line and scheduled a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Chad Johnson. Chad went to their home, examined their basement, and came up with a solution that fit their needs. Teri and Joel were confident in the design, so they moved forward with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Kiko Pena, and his production team began the project by taking down the exterior wall, so only the interior foundation wall was present. The reason behind this was because the exterior wall was capturing moisture and causing water condensation problems. Next, our team broke out the concrete floor perimeter with a jackhammer, forming a trench. In the trench, our team installed our WaterGuard System, which is made to collect water seepage from basement walls and serve as an underground drainage system. To complete the project, Kiko and his crew covered the open gaps with rock and applied new concrete. Teri and Joel were both satisfied and grateful we were able to help them!
