    After

    Paul W. is the owner of this newly built home in Chaseburg, WI. During the construction, the contractor realized that Paul needed to have a waterproofing system installed because of the amount of water that was entering the home through the basement. With the contractor’s advice, Paul contacted us to get a free estimate. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Mac Cole, to the home to evaluate the situation and provide Paul with a solution. Paul understood the consequences he would face if he chose not to have a waterproofing system installed, and he like the thorough plan that Mac developed, so he scheduled an installation. 

    Our Foreman, Juan Pena, and his crew installed a full perimeter of our WaterGuard drainage system, which led to the TripleSafe sump pump. Once the water drains to the sump pump, it is then pumped through the discharge line and expelled from the home. They also installed a perimeter of our CleanSpace vapor barrier to reduce moisture and humidity. CleanSpace also makes the basement a more energy efficient space. After we finished the installation of our waterproofing system, the construction team poured concrete and continued the development of the home.

    Jacqueline M. in Minneapolis, MN had a bowing foundation wall in her basement. She was concerned about the pressure it was putting on her foundation, so she contacted American Waterworks to receive a FREE estimate. One of our Design Specialists, Shane Nephew, went to her home to inspect the wall and design a solution. After listening to her concerns and needs, he developed a plan to permanently restore her wall using PowerBraces. She was pleased with his proposal, so she decided to move forward with repairing her foundation.

    Our Foreman, Juan Pena, and his crew installed 6 PowerBraces along the bowing wall. The PowerBrace is an adjustable beam that stabilizes bowing walls and forces them back into their original position. PowerBraces are sometimes used instead of wall anchors because wall anchors require access to the soil outside and would cause us to cross a property line if that product was installed. The beams are covered with a zinc-coating, so that the beams will not rust or deteriorate over time. Jacqueline was glad that the process was not very disruptive and that they barely take up any space in her basement. She has peace of mind knowing that American Waterworks helped her find a long-term solution for her home.

    Anne L. and her husband in Mankato, MN had recently purchased a home and their realtor recommended that they have the home tested for radon before they move in. After learning that radon is the #1 cause of lung cancer for non-smokers and kills over 21,000 people each year, they started looking for a company to test their home, so they would not be putting their health at risk. Their realtor recommended using American Waterworks, so they gave us a call and we sent our one of our Design Specialists, Jeremy Radtke, to set up the test. 48 hours later, Jeremy came back to read the test results. He discovered that their house did in fact have high levels of radon. Jeremy recommended that they have our radon mitigation system installed as soon as possible and they agreed.

    Our radon mitigation specialists drilled a hole through the concrete in the basement to create a suction point for the gas. Then, a PVC pipe is inserted which goes up through the house and exits the home through the roof. A fan is installed at the top of the PVC pipe to ensure that the radon gas is being pushed away from the home. The post radon mitigation test showed a drastic reduction in radon gas, and they were relieved that their health would not be compromised. The installation only took one day to complete, and now they can rest easy knowing that their home is protected.

    Mike C. in North Mankato, MN had a cracked and bowing foundation wall in his basement. He contacted American Waterworks after seeing an advertisement because he was concerned about the pressure it was putting on his foundation. Our Design Specialist, Eric Hazelton, went to his home to provide him with a FREE onsite inspection and design a solution. Eric recommended that we install PowerBraces to stabilize his walls and protect his foundation. Mike liked the proposal that Eric presented to him, so he decided to move forward with repairing his foundation.

    Our Foreman, Juan Pena, and his crew installed 7 PowerBraces along the bowing wall. The PowerBraces are designed to stabilize failing basement walls and provide the potential for the wall to straighten over time. The beams are covered with a zinc-coating to protect it from rusting or deteriorating. The process was less invasive than Mike thought it would be. Mike is glad he chose the right solution through American Waterworks to protect his foundation for the long-term.

    Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that has become the second leading cause of lung cancer. Naomi R. in Norwood Young America, MN learned that radon kills over 20,000 people each year and she realized that they had not had their home tested yet. Naomi had used us in the past to repair her foundation and had a pleasant experience, so she contacted us again to have her home tested for radon. One of our Design Specialists, Jeremy Radtke, went to her home to set up the radon test and give her a free estimate. The results showed that her home did in fact have high levels of radon, so Jeremy recommended that they have our radon mitigation system installed. Naomi was eager to have the system installed to protect their health and reduce their chances of getting lung cancer.

    Our production team installed the radon mitigation system by inserting a PVC pipe through her sump pump which creates a suction point for the gas. The PVC pipe runs up the house and through the roof. There is a fan installed at the top of the PVC pipe to ensure that the gas is pushed out and away from the home. After each installation, we do a second radon test to ensure that the radon mitigation system is working properly and expelling the radon from the home. The second test reported that Naomi’s home now had significantly lower levels of radon. She is glad that her home is now protected from this harmful, radioactive gas, and that she took action to protect her and her family’s health.

    Myron M. in Morton, MN was visiting a local home show and he found the American Waterworks booth. He had a cracked foundation wall and he had heard we repair foundations, so he stopped to speak with one of our Design Specialists. We set up a time to give him a FREE onsite estimate, so we could inspect his basement and provide him with a solution. After evaluating his foundation, we recommended installing wall anchors to permanently stabilize his foundation wall. He was pleased with the solution and happy he wouldn’t have to replace his foundation, so he scheduled the installation.

    Our production team started the installation by drilling small holes through the block foundation and inserting long metal rods. Then, they secured the ends of the rods with anchor plates and tightened them as far as they could go. Our wall anchor system is designed with galvanized steel, allowing for long-term corrosion resistance. Each anchor system also includes a 25-year warranty against manufacturing defects, and each installation includes our own performance warranty. Myron was impressed with the installation and is thrilled that he no longer has to be concerned about the structural integrity of his foundation.
