    CleanSpace and WaterGuard Keep Viroqua, WI Basement Dry

    Cy S. in Viroqua, WI contacted American Waterworks because he had water in his basement and his new addition. He met with one of our Design Specialists, who proposed that the best solution was to install a full perimeter of our WaterGuard drainage system and a SuperSump sump pump. 

    Our Foreman, Arturo Mares, 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. They also installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier along the walls to protect the room from moisture and potential mold growth. The encapsulation system will now guide water leaking in through the foundation walls and redirect it to their WaterGuard perimeter floor drainage system and ultimately drain into the SuperSump sump pump. Cy is pleased that his basement is now a dry, healthier space and he is glad he chose to invest in the long-term protection of his home.

    Water Leaking into Basement in Waukon, IA

    Katie W. in Waukon, IA noticed that she had cracks in her foundation and water was seeping through the cracks into her basement. The water had started damaging her personal items in her basement, and she was concerned that the damage to her basement was only going to get worse. She started looking for a waterproofing contractor in the area and she came across the American Waterworks website. She was glad to see that we have over 29 years of experience in the waterproofing industry. She contacted us to receive a free estimate, so we sent a Design Specialist to her home to inspect her basement and design a solution. She was pleased with the proposal that we developed for her, so she scheduled the installation.

    Our production team installed a full perimeter of our WaterGuard drainage system in her basement and two lateral lines through the middle of the floor. We also installed our TripleSafe sump pump system- which is our most reliable sump pump. The drainage system properly guides water to the sump pump, and from there the water is pumped through the discharge line and expelled from the home. Our waterproofing system is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Katie can rest easy knowing that she chose the right solution to protect her home for the long-term.

    Stephen S. in Rochester, MN found that his deck had started settling and putting pressure on their home. He was worried about the damage that it was causing to the structure of his home, so he contacted American Waterworks for a FREE estimate.

    We sent one of our Design Specialists to his home to inspect the situation and to find a solution for him. We recommended installing a helical pier under each deck post to support the weight of the deck and raise it back to its original position. Stephen agreed that that was the best solution to his foundation problem, so we scheduled an installation as soon as possible. 

    Our crew installed 3 helical piers to support the deck and relieve the stress that it was putting on their home. The project took a couple of days, but since our piers are backed with a lifetime warranty, Stephen will reap the benefits of this project for years to come. He is pleased with the work was done and he is glad that he made the investment to protect the foundation of their home.

    Cracked and Bowed Foundation Wall in Rochester, MN

    Tim F. in Rochester, MN noticed a slight bow and some cracking throughout the walls in his basement. While researching foundation repair options, he contacted American Waterworks for a FREE estimate. We sent our Design Specialist, Rick Weber, to his home to inspect the foundation and provide Tim with a solution. He was happy with Rick’s proposal and the CarbonArmor® Wall Reinforcing System that we offer. He set a date with our production crew to install the project!

    Our Foreman, Arturo, and his crew installed the series of straps across the foundation walls to halt further movement and cracks. CarbonArmor® straps are a quick, affordable way to stabilize block and poured concrete walls that have cracked and that are showing signs of bowing. And because the straps don’t protrude from the wall, the repair can be easily covered with mortar, paint, or light wall panels. The installation process moved quickly, and Tim was happy with the result. He is glad he made the investment to protect the foundation of his home.

    Water Seeping Through Cracked Foundation in South Saint Paul, MN

    Mary C. just moved into a new home in South Saint Paul, MN. After a couple of days, she noticed water seeping into her basement through a crack in the foundation. She saw a commercial for American Waterworks on the television and saw that we offer basement waterproofing, foundation repair, concrete repair, and radon mitigation. She decided to call us for a free estimate, so we sent out one of our Design Specialists, Chad Johnson, to inspect her basement and design a solution. Chad came up with a thorough waterproofing plan to ensure that her basement would remain dry for years to come. Mary was pleased with the proposal that Chad presented to her, so she scheduled a date to have our waterproofing system installed.

    Our production team installed a full perimeter of our WaterGuard drainage system, a TripleSafe sump pump and CleanSpace throughout the crawl space and halfway up the basement wall. The WaterGuard is a drainage system that properly drains the water to the sump pump- which then discharges the water from the home. The CleanSpace vapor barrier works to protect the basement from humidity and mold. The combination of these waterproofing products ensure that Mary’s basement will remain a clean, dry space.
