    Customer Testimonial

              I was freaking out when our basement started leaking water. I called a couple of different places and American Waterworks were able to get me an appointment before the others. The rep that came out for the quote was super informative and lead me through all my options with ease. There was no pressure to chose the most expensive options which was not what I expected. Another plus was that they pair with a company that offered financing. I set up my appointment for the work to be done and, when the day came, they showed up on time. They were very polite and professional. They were also very careful and respectful of our home and cleaned up their mess when they were done. We only did half of our basement for now (the half that was leaking) but I will definitely be having them do the other half in the future! Thanks again American waterworks!

    Customer Testimonial

              I didn't have a lot of direct interaction with the American Waterworks office staff, but when I did, they were courteous, very helpful, and responsive to my questions. They gave regular reminder phone calls and the mailing packet was also helpful for keeping me informed. Eric Hazelton was very professional, personable, and knowledgeable about your products. In addition to being responsive to my questions and concerns, he put together a good package/system for me. I called him a couple times from the time of the original apppointment until about time for the date of service. He got back to me in a timely manner to address my concerns. Tremaine and his installation crew were awesome! They called as they were on their way and kept me informed as to their anticipated travel/arrival time here. He also discussed a change with me that I initiated and was concerned about regarding the north basement wall. I really liked his solution and there was a smooth transition to the new change. The bit of a "bump in the road" occurred because when this was planned out, I had originally planned for them to do the entire north wall. This meant I had moved most of my "keeper" basement belongings to a northwest corner that now clearly interferes with the area they had to access. I felt bad about the extra work but Tremaine assured me that they could quickly move the items that were in their way to a new location. In addition, they completed the entire project in one day as opposed to the original two-day timeframe allotted. For me, this was a HUGE bonus plus! All in all, this was a very good/excellent experience for me. The guys - Eric, Tremaine, and the crew - were awesome! Thank you all!

    Bob G. of Mapleton, MN

    Customer Testimonial

              I really want to compliment the crew with American Waterworks. Throughout the install of my sump pump system, they would bring me in to look at what they were doing and make sure I was happy. They were very polite, courteous, and went the extra mile to keep our space clean. When they left, the entire project looked neat and professional. They left me with a lot of peace of mind that this was done and done right. I also want to compliment the front desk gal at their Rochester office. I stopped in there initially to get some information and she was so helpful and polite and went out of her to make sure I had all the information that I needed. When I left there, I already had a good feeling about having them do this work. Lastly, I want to compliment Eric, our sales rep. Unlike another company based out of Mankato that quoted me on this, who was a very argumentative salesperson, Eric listened to what I needed done and worked with me. The experience with him and the fair price he gave made it easy to hire them to do this project. I would recommend this company 100%.

              Our installation crew was amazing! They braved a steep hill, a blizzard, near gale force winds, and mud- lots of heavy frozen clay mud. They were all very courteous, and given the weather conditions, it was even more impressive. They were also very knowledgeable and conscientious throughout the whole project. They kept us informed along the way. Cleanup was beyond satisfactory. Nothing was left behind, not even a scrap of paper. They did a lovely job.

    WaterGuard and TripleSafe Keep Galesville, WI Basement Dry

    Kevin L. in Galesville, WI had dealt with a wet basement for the last 40 years, and he was finally tired of it. He did his research and learned that American Waterworks has been the leading waterproofing contractor in the region for the last 30 years. He met with one of our Design Specialists, Eric Hazelton, who evaluated the situation and designed a unique solution. 

    Our Foreman, Cole Brinkman, and his production crew were able to successfully waterproof Kevin’s basement by installing 160 feet of our WaterGuard drainage system and our recommended TripleSafe sump pump. The WaterGuard French drain is designed to be installed below the floor slab, resting on top of the foundation footing. This keeps this drainage system out of the "mud zone", where drains can clog. Kevin is happy he found a permanent solution to protect his home.

Our Design Specialist walked him through the radon mitigation installation process and answered his questions. Nick wanted to act quickly and moved forward with an installation date.

    Cracked Foundation in Mankato, MN

     Mr. Conner's foundation walls are cracking and pushing inward due to the expansive soils and hydrostatic pressure on the walls from outside his home. We recommended installing eleven Geo-Lock Wall Anchors along the bowing wall to stabilize and restore the wall back to its original position.  The soil anchors were placed in the ground outside his home. Steel rods attached to soil anchors extend through the foundation wall and wall plates. Wall plates distribute clamping pressure. Tightening nuts on the threaded ends of the rods stabilize the wall for a permanent solution.

He was concerned about the bowing walls and the potential damage it could cause.
