              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.

    Customer Testimonial

              We had water in our basement several years ago and hired American Waterworks to fix our recurring issue. It was the 2nd time we had to redo our basement due to water damage. The sales person spent a lot of time going over our options and answered any questions we had. He was very knowledgeable and cared that we fixed the problem the right way, not just put a ban-aid on it. We installed WaterGuard around the perimeter of the entire basement and the 10 mill poly barrier on walls. We also installed the sump pump with battery back up in case we were to lose power and for peace of mind. The staff came in, sealed the basement off and worked fast. Everything was completed in just a couple days and cleaned up nicely when they were finished. We have not had any water in our basement in over 6 years and no musty smell either. We no longer worry at all when it rains, because American Waterworks fixed our problem. Thank you!

    Audrey S. in Jasper, MN had some severe cracks in the walls in her basement that were getting larger over time and putting pressure on the foundation.

    Waterproofing System Installed in Madison Lake, MN

    Pell J. in Madison Lake, MN had water leaking into his basement. He was concerned about the air quality in their home and the damage that the water was causing. He saw an advertisement in his local newspaper for American Waterworks, so he decided to call us for a free estimate. One of our Design Specialists went to his home to inspect his basement and design a solution. We recommended that he have our full waterproofing system installed in his basement to ensure that his basement would be permanently waterproofed. Pell liked the proposal that we presented to him, so he scheduled the installation.

    Our production team started the installation by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement. Then, they laid the WaterGuard drainage system and installed the sump pump. The drainage system now properly guides water to the sump pump, and from there the water is pushed through the discharge line and expelled from the home. The installation took our crew one full day, and Pell will now be able to enjoy a dry basement for many years to come. He is glad he chose to invest in the protection of his home.

    Dan H. of Monona, IA had water leaking in his basement so he had our Design Specialist, Mac Cole, out to his home to inspect the problem and come up with a solution. After an in-depth diagnosis, Dan was comfortable with Mac's proposal, so he went ahead with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Jose Castillo, and his production crew began the installation by breaking out the concrete around the perimeter of the basement floor to form a trench. In the trench, our crew installed our WaterGuard System, which prevents water clogs and collects wall water seepage. Next, our crew applied our CleanSpace Wall System around the perimeter of the basement walls to prevent mold, mildew and humidity from invading the basement. To complete the installation, our crew filled the open trench gaps with rock and replaced the concrete.

    Jill S. in Sacred Heart, MN had a dirt crawl space that was creating a musty smell in her home because of the moisture in that space.

    Cracked Basement Walls in Le Center, MN Secured With Wall Anchors

    Anthony W. in Le Center, MN had multiple cracked walls in his basement. He was worried that these cracks would cause the walls to bow, which would put pressure on his foundation. He wanted to repair his walls before his problem got worse, so he contacted American Waterworks to learn more about our foundation repair solutions. We sent a Design Specialist to his home to provide him with a solution and a FREE estimate. Anthony was impressed with our products and our team, so he scheduled the installation. 

    Our Design Specialist recommended having wall anchors installed along the cracked walls to permanently stabilize the foundation. Our production crew started the installation by drilling 13 long, metal rods through the brick wall into the soil surrounding the home. They secured both ends of the rod with anchor plates and tightened them. These anchors can continue to be tightened over time to gradually straighten the wall. Anthony's walls became permanently secured with the installation of these wall anchors. He is glad he made the investment to protect his foundation for the long-term.
