    Dakota seemed very knowledgeable. He was a good Foreman. Both guys worked hard to get a dirty job done and done well. Made sure it was cleaned up when it was done.

    High Levels of Radon in Lewiston, MN

    Brandon R. in Lewiston, MN had learned about the dangers of radon gas and decided that he needed to get his home tested. The test results showed a high level of radon. So our Design Specialist, Mac Cole, walked Brandon through the radon mitigation installation process and answered his questions. Brandon wanted to act quickly so his family's health would no longer be compromised, so he had the system installed as soon as possible. 

    Our crew drilled a hole through the floor in the basement to insert a PVC pipe and create a suction point for the radon gas. Then the gas is vented through the pipe and out of the home. A fan is also installed at the top of the PVC pipe where the gas is vented out to ensure that the gas is pushed away from the home. Brandon now has peace of mind knowing that his family is protected from this dangerous gas.

    According to the World Health Organization, radon causes 15% of the world's lung cancer cases and kills over 20,000 people each year. If you have not gotten your home tested for radon, click here to set up an appointment!

    Water Damaged Basement in Rollingstone, MN

    Shonna L. in Rollingstone, MN had water seeping into her basement and her old sump pump was not able to keep up with the amount of water coming in. Her basement had become a damp, musty and unlivable space. She was tired of dealing with a wet basement, so she started to research waterproofing contactors in her area. She found the American Waterworks’ website and was impressed by our extensive waterproofing knowledge. She had us out to her home to look at her basement and provide her with a free estimate. After inspecting her basement, our Design Specialist, Dustin Loftus, was able to develop a thorough and unique plan to waterproof her basement. She was pleased with his proposal, so they set a date for our production crew to install the waterproofing system.

    Our production team started the installation by removing the old sump pump and the concrete around the perimeter of her basement where the WaterGuard drainage system needed to be laid. They installed our TripleSafe sump pump, which is our most reliable sump pump. The WaterGuard properly guides the water leaking into her basement to the sump pump. Then, they replaced the concrete over the drainage system and around the sump pump. 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 Shonna can rest easy knowing her basement will always be protected. She is glad she chose to invest in the long-term protection of her home.

    Crawl Space Waterproofing in Stillwater, MN

    Marsha Z. in Stillwater, MN had moisture in her crawl space. She was concerned that her air quality was being compromised, so she got in touch with American Waterworks to receive a free estimate. Shortly after she contacted us, one of our Design Specialists, Shane Nephew, went onsite to inspect her crawl space. He developed a plan to seal off her basement permanently from the ground by using CleanSpace and drainage matting.

    Our Foreman, Jared Wroblewski, and his crew installed the CleanSpace and drainage matting which is now preventing humidity and pests from entering her home. Now that Marsha's crawl space is permanently separated from the earth, she can enjoy a healthier home and even lower energy costs.

    Cracked Concrete Stoop in Eden Prairie, MN

    Jon W. in Eden Prairie, MN had a large crack through the concrete on his steps and his concrete had started sinking, causing a trip hazard. He previously had his stoop mud-jacked, but he was having problems again. He started looking for another concrete repair contractor to see what his options were, and he was directed to American Waterworks. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, to his home to assess his concrete situation and develop a solution. Jon was glad to learn that PolyLevel is a durable, faster, and more affordable alternative to traditional concrete repair, so he scheduled a date for the installation.

    Our Foreman, Brandon Wiskow, drilled small holes into the concrete on his stoop where he needed to inject the foam. He injected our PolyLevel into the holes until the concrete slab was level. Then, he sealed the cracks in the concrete with our Nexus Pro sealant, which protects the concrete and gives it a nice, finished look. The process only took about half a day, and now Jon will be able to enjoy level concrete for years to come.
