    Customer Testimonial

              Our installation crew was amazing! They braved a steep hill, a blizzard, near gale force winds, and mud- lots of heavy frozen clay mud. They were all very courteous, and given the weather conditions, it was even more impressive. They were also very knowledgeable and conscientious throughout the whole project. They kept us informed along the way. Cleanup was beyond satisfactory. Nothing was left behind, not even a scrap of paper. They did a lovely job.

    Douglas P. in Saint Paul, MN had a crack in his foundation where water was leaking in. Any time he experienced a heavy rain, water would start to pool in his basement with no where to go. He started looking for a waterproofing company, and he found American Waterworks on Home Advisor. He got in touch with us to receive a FREE estimate, so we sent one of our Design Specialists, Chad Johnson, to his home to inspect his basement and design a solution. While Chad was there, he noticed that the support beams in his basement had started to sag, which was causing the cracks in the foundation. Chad recommended that we install SmartJacks as well as our waterproofing system to ensure that his basement would permanently be a dry space. Douglas agreed, and he liked the proposal that Chad presented, so he decided to move forward with the installation.

    Our production team installed the SmartJacks first to hold up the beams and provide permanent support. Then, they removed the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and installed the WaterGuard drainage system and SuperSump sump pump. Lastly, they installed the CleanSpace vapor barrier to keep mold and moisture out of the basement. Water is now guided through the drainage system and led to the sump pump, where it is then discharged from the home. The combination of these foundation repair and waterproofing products have created a dry, clean, and stable basement for Douglas. Both our waterproofing and foundation repair products are backed by warranties, so Douglas can rest easy knowing he chose a reliable, long-term solution.

    Damp CrawlSpace in White Bear Lake, MN

    A real estate agent in White Bear Lake, MN reached out to American Waterworks after a homeowner was struggling to sell their previous home.  

    American Waterworks recommended installing CleanSpace, a crawl space vapor barrier, because it is one of the most cost-effective ways to improve a home.  Along with the protection from mold and rot, a dry crawl space can free their home of insects and other pests that need excess moisture to survive.  Mice and rats are deterred by the plastic vapor barrier, and flooding waters will be kept at bay.
