    Peter B. of Eau Claire, WI

    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.

Jeromy, Hugo, and the rest of the installation team did a great job with the install. Everyone showed up on time and the project got done in no time. The "Smart Jack" system we had put in looks very robust and easy to adjust for future raising. I'm sitting in a 130-year-old house with solid, level floors now and I couldn't be happier with the entire process.

    Customer Testimonial

              The people of American Waterworks are miracle workers -- and just really good people. Every person I've worked with within this company really cares about their customers. They do the right thing and do meticulous work. They recently helped restore my 1900 Victorian to its original glory by raising the house 5 inches on one side after decades of settling -- we're talking old, cranky beams that have been askew for years and years. My foundation is made of stone and where most foundation companies wouldn't touch this job, American Waterworks was up to the task. They set my expectations that maybe my floors wouldn't be level. But under the professional leadership of the foreman on the job, darned if they didn't level those floors. Oh and they did it in a week -- they even came on a Saturday to finish the job. I am so thankful for their understanding, respect and the care they took with helping me realize the vision I had for this home when I bought it. 5 stars all the way.

    Martin D. in Lansing, IA has a two-story home with a walk-in basement built into a steep hillside. His home was built right next to the Mississippi River. They have had problems with their basement flooding for several years, especially during heavy rains. They were tired of dealing with a wet basement, so they contacted American Waterworks to receive a FREE estimate. One of our Design Specialists, Mike Radosevich, went to the home to inspect the basement and provide them with the right solution. After meeting with Mike, Martin felt confident in our company and our products, so he chose to have our waterproofing system installed. 

    Our Foreman, Hugo Sanchez, and his crew installed our WaterGuard drainage system around the perimeter of the basement floor, a TripleSafe sump pump in the corner, and a SaniDry dehumidifier, which keeps the humidity in the basement under control. The drainage system guides water to the sump pump, and from there the water is expelled from the home through the discharge line. Martin is happy with the outcome and has been able to enjoy a dry, healthier basement since the installation!

    Basement Waterproofing System in Winona, MN

    Water was leaking through the wall of this home in Winona, MN, causing water moisture problems and health concerns. The homeowner knew of our Design Specialist, Chuck, so they had him come out and inspect their basement. Chuck proposed our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain and our TripleSafe Sump Pump System to repair the damage. The homeowner was confident in Chuck's proposal, so they followed through with the project and scheduled a date for the installation. 

    Our Foreman, Hugo, and his production team broke out the entire basement floor perimeter, forming a trench. Then, our team drilled peepholes throughout the bottom of the wall perimeter. The reason behind this is so the WaterGuard can catch leaking water. Not only does our WaterGuard collect water; it also prevents water and mud clogs and has easily accessible service ports for annual maintenances. Next, our crew installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. Our TripleSafe is the best sump pump that we offer for homeowners because it comes with three levels of water protection, it solves all three water problems in one system, and it comes with a battery back-up, which keeps the sump pump running if there is a power failure. To complete the project, our team covered the peepholes with our one-foot-height of CleanSpace, which guides the water into the WaterGuard. To complete the installation, Hugo and his team filled the open gaps with river rock and applied new concrete over them. The homeowner was happy with the work that was done and had a great experience with our team!

Eric went to their home, inspected the problem, and came up with a solution. Dana and Carol were comfortable with Eric's proposal, so they went ahead with the project.

Next, our team applied our CleanSpace Wall System around the wall perimeter, which prevents mold and humidity growth, and it acts as an extra wall protectant. It also gives basements a neat and clean appearance. Then, Hugo and his crew installed 21 of our PowerBraces on the CleanSpace.

During the inspection, we discovered that his basement walls had started to crack and bow inward. This was one of the entry points for the water. We also found water seeping up through the floor in one of the corners of the basement. Bob was pleased with the thorough plan that our Design Specialist developed, so he chose to move forward with the installation. 

    Our production crew installed our WaterGuard drainage system around the basement floor, a SuperSump sump pump in the corner and 3 wall anchors to repair the damaged foundation wall. The process took two days to complete, but now Bob's peace of mind is restored. His basement is now a dry, healthier space, and he is confident that the walls of his home are stable. He is glad he found a solution to repair his home for the long-term.

    Damaged Foundation Stabilized in River Falls, WI

    Jonathan P. in River Falls, WI had bowing walls in his basement. He was concerned about the pressure this was putting on his foundation, and he wanted to have his walls repaired before the problem got any worse.He started looking into foundation repair options and he came across the American Waterworks website. He contacted us for a FREE estimate, so we sent a Design Specialist to his home to inspect his foundation and provide him with a solution. We recommended installing PowerBraces along the shifting foundation to halt any further movement and start to move the foundation back into place. Jonathan felt that our plan was the most efficient, durable, and cost-effective option, so he chose to move forward with the installation.

    Our production team started the installation by securing brackets into the floor as well as the rim joists. Then, they installed the PowerBraces into the brackets and tightened them as far as they could go. PowerBraces do not require outside excavation so it is less invasive than other foundation repair options. The installation took a day to complete, but now Jonathan’s foundation is permanently restored, and he no longer is concerned about the stability of his walls.
