    I would like to thank the three men who installed the vapor barrier in my crawl space. They were so polite, seemed to enjoy their job, were singing, laughing, and working very hard. I never saw them sitting around. So many times they made me chuckle. There are no other words except THANK YOU! They were such a joy to have at my home.

              Our basement was a big project with 2 different levels. The guys started on Monday and were done by Thursday. They were very courteous to us, our kids and home. I felt bad all the running up and down the stairs they were doing carrying broken concrete and stone. But they worked hard and I really didnt see them just stand around. Was very impressed. It has been tested and our basement is dry! We now don't panic when it rains!!

    Crawl Space Encapsulation in Ferryville, WI

    Charlene T. in Ferryville, WI came across our booth at the Midwest Farm Show in La Crosse, WI. She was concerned about the moisture in her dirt-floor crawl space. She felt like she was losing energy from that space, so she spoke with our Design Specialist, Dylan Woitas, who was at the show and learned about our crawl space encapsulation services. Dylan set up an appointment with Charlene and went to her home to evaluate the situation and design the best solution. 

    Our Foreman, Kiko Pena, and his production team installed a full perimeter of rim joist insulation which seals the rim joists and lowers Charlene’s energy costs. They also installed our crawl space vapor barrier which protects the space from moisture and potential mold growth. The combination of these encapsulation products turned the crawl space into a dry, clean and energy efficient part of the house. The process took a couple of days to complete, but Charlene now has a bright, clean and healthy crawl space and is saving money on her energy bill each month.

    Damaged Foundation and Wet Basement Restored in Claremont, MN

    Desiree S. was suffering from a wet basement and a damaged foundation wall. The wall had multiple cracks, was bowing inward, and water was seeping through. She did her research and was glad to learn that American Waterworks has been the leading foundation repair contractor in the region for 30 years! She contacted us to receive a FREE estimate, so we sent a Design Specialist to her home to evaluate the situation and propose a permanent solution to fit her needs. 

    We were able to restore Desiree’s basement by installing Geo-lock wall anchors along the damaged foundation, which immediately halted the deterioration and began to straighten the wall. Then our production crew installed a full perimeter of our WaterGuard drainage system and our recommended TripleSafe sump pump. These waterproofing products work together to keep her basement a dry and healthy space. Desiree is happy she made the investment to protect her home.

    Mitch J. in Coon Rapids, MN had water seeping into his basement. He expressed his frustration about the problem in his basement to a friend and that friend recommended that he call American Waterworks to waterproof his basement. Mitch decided to call us for a free estimate, so we sent one of our Design Specialists, Jeremy Radtke, to his home to inspect the problem and design a solution. Jeremy worked closely with Mitch to develop a plan that was best fitting for his needs. Mitch was pleased with the proposal that Jeremy presented to him, so he scheduled a date for us to waterproof his basement.
