    Customer Testimonial

              We had part of our foundation supported on helical piers, as well as helical anchors installed in a large retaining wall below the house. The job required two crews from American Waterworks. They arrived and went to work, and it was clear everyone knew what they needed to do. The two crews were fast and polite, always answering questions I had, and giving me a good idea of what was being done. They clearly had done this work many times before and were experts at installing this type of structural support system. I was impressed by how little impact their work had on the inside of the house. The care taken to protect the structure was clearly a result of a lot of experience with this type of work. They were also done ahead of schedule in just 4 days, working 11 hours a day. The company came highly recommended and I am glad I chose them to handle this job. The process of getting a proper quote for this complex job took some time, but the flexibility to get them to do just what we needed to be done was another sign of their experience with this type of construction. Thanks to Hugo and his crew, our dream house will now sit securely on the hillside it was built on 6 years ago.

    Jeff and Heidi B. of Eastman, WI had cracked walls in their basement, making them feel nervous and unsafe living in their home. After doing some research on our website, they called our office line to schedule a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Jeremy Girgen. Jeremy went to their home to inspect the walls and come up with a solution. After a thorough inspection, Jeff and Heidi felt comfortable with the proposal, so they went ahead with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Juan Pena, and his production team began the project by digging 11 holes outside of the home. Next, Juan and his team inserted a long, metal rod from the inside of the basement, through the foundation, to each hole outside of the home. Our team tightened and screwed on a GeoLock Wall Anchor on the ends of each rod to pull the walls back and stabilize them into their natural positions. To complete the project, Juan and his crew backfilled the holes and replaced the soil, leaving the yard looking neater than when they found it. Jeff and Heidi were thrilled with the work completed and had a remarkable experience from beginning to end!

    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.

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!

    Barbara B in Eyota, MN learned about the dangers of radon gas. She had not yet had her home tested and once she learned that radon causes 15% of the world's lung cancer cases and kills over 20,000 people each year, she wanted to get her home tested right away.

    She contacted American Waterworks and we sent our Design Specialist, Dustin Loftus, to her home to set up a radon test kit. The results showed that she did have high levels of radon and we recommended that we install a radon mitigation system to ensure that the majority of the radon entering her home would be sucked through a PVC pipe and discharged from her home. 

    Our crew drilled a hole through the floor in the basement to insert a PVC pipe and create a suction point for the radon gas. Then the gas is vented through the pipe and out of the home. A fan is also installed at the top of the PVC pipe where the gas is vented out to ensure that the gas is pushed away from the home. Barbara now has peace of mind knowing that her family is protected from this dangerous gas.

Mike developed a waterproofing plan that best fit Richard’s needs, so Richard scheduled the installation.

    Our production team started the installation process by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement floor. They laid a partial perimeter of our WaterGuard drainage system around the basement floor. Then, they installed our SuperSump sump pump and filled the void around the sump pump and WaterGuard with rock. Lastly, they replaced the concrete over the WaterGuard and around the sump pump. The drainage system now properly drains water to the sump pump, and from there the water is pushed through the discharge line and expelled from the home. Richard can rest easy knowing that water will no longer be in his basement. He is glad he chose to invest in protecting his home for years to come.

    Bill B. in Rudd, IA noticed that the north side of his basement was taking on water during heavy rains. Bill had tried numerous quick fixes, but nothing he tried was a permanent solution. He decided to call the waterproofing experts at American Waterworks to receive a FREE estimate. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Mac Cole, to his home to inspect his basement and provide him with the best long-term solution. Bill was pleased with Mac’s thorough plan, so he scheduled the installation of our waterproofing system.

    Our Foreman, Juan Pena, and his crew installed our WaterGuard drainage system. They removed a section of the concrete floor around the perimeter and created a drainage trench. The WaterGuard is then placed within the trench and filled back with rock to fill the gaps. This keeps the drainage system out of the “mud zone”, where drains can clog. Then, they installed a SuperSump sump pump system which is engineered to help keep the basement dry and healthy for extended periods of time, even in times of heavy water intrusion. The water now properly flows through the drainage system and is then discharged from the home through the sump pump. Bill is now enjoying a dry, healthier basement!
