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.

Shannon G. in Oronoco, MN had a large crack in the foundation wall on the back of his garage. He knew that he would be taking a large risk if he chose to wait to repair his foundation, because it could fail at any time, and become a much larger expense. He started researching foundation repair companies when he saw an advertisement for American Waterworks. He decided to call us for a FREE estimate, so we sent one of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, to his home to inspect his foundation problem and find a solution. Rick talked him through his options and he developed a plan that was the most beneficial for him. After meeting with Rick and getting his questions and concerns addressed, Shannon felt that we were the best fit for him, so he scheduled a date for the installation.
Our crew installed 4 wall anchors from the outside of his garage into the soil underneath the concrete in the garage. They drilled long rods through the brick until they hit supportive soil. They removed the concrete in the garage where they would need to put on the plates for the anchors. They installed the plates on either end of the rod and tightened the anchors. Lastly, they replaced the concrete and cleaned up their work area. The anchors secure and stabilize the wall. They continue to straighten the walls and can be tightened over time as the wall gradually moves back into place. Our foundation repair systems are guaranteed for a lifetime, so Shannon can rest easy knowing he chose a permanent solution to protect the foundation of his home.

Stephen W. in Forest Lake, MN had water seeping into his basement and he did not have a sufficient sump pump to discharge the water from the home. He saw one of our waterproofing advertisements and decided it would be a good idea to get a FREE estimate to waterproof his basement.
Our Design Specialist, Chad Johnson, went to his home to inspect the situation and to develop a solution. Chad determined that the best way to ensure that Stephen would never have to worry about a wet basement would be to install WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement and then install a SuperSump sump pump to properly expel the water to the outside. Stephen agreed that this was the right plan for his basement, so we sent a crew to install our system.
The installation took a couple of days, but Steven will reap the benefits of this system for a lifetime. Since the installation, he has had a dry, clean basement. Our waterproofing system is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Stephen can rest easy knowing he invested in permanently protecting his home from water seeping into his home and causing damage.
