    Doug S. in Altoona, WI was getting ready to sell his home, but he was concerned about the two cracked and bowing walls in his basement. He knew that if he did not repair the foundation, it would drastically reduce the value of the home. A friend recommended that he contact American Waterworks to help with his foundation problem, so he gave us a call for a FREE estimate.

Took a full day, but our wall anchors are backed by a lifetime guarantee, so Doug has peace of mind that he chose the right solution to protect the foundation of the home.

    Jolyn N. in Willmar, MN was concerned about a large crack in her foundation and water seeping into her basement. After being referred to our company, we sent our Design Specialist, Jeremy Radtke, to her home to complete a FREE estimate. Jolyn was happy with the solution Jeremy provided, and she decided to move forward with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Matt Zeller, and his crew started installing our waterproofing system by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and laying our WaterGuard drainage system. Next, they installed our SuperSump sump pump and our CleanSpace vapor barrier system along the walls. The combination of these waterproofing products ensure that water will be properly discharged from her basement and that it will remain a dry and functional space. 

    Then, our crew installed 16 Geo-Lock wall anchors along the damaged foundation by drilling small holes through the block into the soil surrounding the home. They dug small holes in the yard that lined up with the anchor rods, and they secured them from the outside and inside of the home with anchor plates. They tightened them as far as they would go to stabilize the walls and to halt any further movement. The installation took two days to complete, and Jolyn’s peace of mind has been restored knowing that her foundation is permanently secure!

    Jim D. in Adrian, MN had a concrete driveway that had sunk a few inches over time, creating a large trip hazard and an annoying bump when driving in and out of the garage. While looking for a concrete repair contractor, he came across American Waterworks' website and was curious to learn more about our PolyLevel foam concrete repair solution. He contacted us for a FREE estimate, so we happily sent one of our Design Specialists, Jeremy Radtke, to his home to inspect his concrete problem and find a solution. Jim liked the proposal that Jeremy developed, so he moved forward with the installation. 

    One of our PolyLevel experts, Jared, drilled small holes into the concrete driveway where the foam would need to be injected in order to effectively raise the concrete. Then, he injected the foam until the driveway was once again level with the garage. Lastly, he filled the cracks in the concrete with our Nexus Pro sealant and cleaned up his work area. Jim was very pleased with the result and was glad he found a quick, durable and more affordable alternative to traditional concrete repair.

    Jerry T. in Granite Falls, MN noticed that one of his garage foundation walls had a large exterior crack and it was bowing outward. He was concerned that the damaged wall was putting too much pressure on his foundation and did not want to get stuck in a situation where he had to replace the entire foundation. He contacted American Waterworks to receive a FREE estimate, so we had one of our Design Specialists, Jeremy Radtke, go to his home to develop the right solution unique to Jerry’s home. Jerry was pleased to hear that we could permanently secure his foundation by installing wall anchors, so he scheduled to have our foundation repair system installed.

    Our production team started the installation process by drilling long metal rods into the soil underneath the garage floor and through the block foundation wall. They removed small rectangles of concrete from the garage floor where they would secure the other end of the rods. They screwed anchor plates on to the rods and tightened them as far as they would go. Lastly, they replaced the concrete in the garage and cleaned up. The process was quick and efficient. Jerry was very pleased with the results and is glad he chose to protect his foundation by having it permanently repaired.

  • Sinking Concrete in Marshall, MN.

    Sinking Concrete in Marshall, MN.
    After

    Homeowners in Marshall, MN noticed the concrete in the corner near their front door was getting lower and lower over time. The concrete was sinking! Concrete is extremely heavy and if the soil beneath it is not strong enough to bare the weight, the floor will begin to sink. Luckily this customer called American Waterworks. We have a simple solution to sinking sidewalks, driveways and patios!

    Our specialist visited the home to assess the situation. He suggest PolyLevel to be installed under the concrete. PolyLevel foam injection is much like mud jacking, but it is made up of expanding polymers and leaves only a dime size hole - which can be hidden. 

    Now the concrete has risen in this area back to its original position and the homeowners are happy with their even walkway.
