    The crew did a fantastic job. They were awesome. They swept everything when they were done and it looked like the place had never been touched! We had waterproofing done by another company before but your professionalism, service and experience was a night and day difference. We wish we had gone with you in the first place!

    Bowing Foundation Wall in La Crescent, MN
    After

    Larry M. in La Crescent, MN had a bowing foundation wall in his basement. He was concerned that his wall was no longer stable and that it was putting pressure on the foundation of the home. He knew how expensive it can be to replace and entire foundation, so he decided he needed to have a professional take a look and see what his options were. One of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, went onsite to give him a free estimate. Rick recommended installing 5 Geo-Lock wall anchors on Larry's bowing foundation wall. 

    Larry was pleased to discover that our wall anchors are backed by a lifetime warranty, which made him comfortable having them installed. Larry could already see the difference in stability of that wall once the anchors were tightened. Larry now has peace of mind knowing his wall has been permanently been secured and stabilized.

    After

    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.

    Ann H. in Lyle, MN was suffering from a wet basement. She started looking for a local waterproofing company and she found American Waterworks’ website. After reading about our waterproofing services, she contacted us to receive a free estimate. One of our Design Specialists, Mac Cole, went to her home to inspect her basement and design a solution. Mac worked closely with Ann to design a personalized plan that was the best fit for her and her home. She was pleased with the proposal that Mac presented to her, so she set a date to have our waterproofing system installed.

    Our production team started the process by removing the carpet and the concrete for the WaterGuard drainage system and sump pump to be installed. The WaterGuard was laid on the perimeter of her basement and the sump pump was installed in the corner. The drainage system now properly drains water to the sump pump and from there, the sump pump pushes the water through the discharge line to be expelled from the home. Ann now has peace of mind that her basement will be a dry, clean space for years to come. Our waterproofing system is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Ann is confident that she chose the right solution to protect her basement.
