Bridget in Ossian, IA was trying to sell her home that she had lived in for 25 years. The buyer was concerned about a cracked wall in the garage and wanted to have it inspected. Bridget’s realtor got her in touch with American Waterworks to help with her foundation problem. One of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, went onsite to give her a FREE inspection and design a solution.
Rick recommended that she have us install PowerBraces along the damaged wall to permanently stabilize it. Bridget and the buyer agreed to have the project completed, so they scheduled the installation.
Our production team installed the four PowerBraces in the garage and left the homeowner with a tightening kit to continue straightening the wall over time. Our foundation repair systems are backed by a lifetime warranty, so she is confident in their decision to go with American Waterworks.

Vern K. in Plainview, MN noticed a musty smell coming from his crawl space. When he looked for what was causing the smell, he noticed that there was a lot of moisture in his crawl space. He was concerned about the air quality of his home and about the potential damage the moisture could cause.
He saw one of our advertisements on TV and saw that we are able to waterproof and encapsulate crawl spaces. He wanted to have a professional look at it so he gave us a call and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Dustin Loftus, to his home to do a free onsite estimate and create a solution to his problem.
Our production team installed a full perimeter of rim joist insulation which seals the rim joists and lowers Vern's energy costs. They also installed drainage matting and our CleanSpace vapor barrier. The combination of these crawl space waterproofing and encapsulation products turned Vern's crawl space into a dry, clean and energy efficient part of the house.

Jordan P in Austin, MN was suffering from water leaking into his basement during heavy rains. He wanted to have his basement repaired as soon as possible, so he started looking for a waterproofing contractor. He found the American Waterworks website and was happy to see that we offer FREE estimates. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Pete Wangen, to his home to inspect his basement and provide him with a solution. Pete designed a thorough plan that was specific to Jordan’s waterproofing needs, and Jordan decided to move forward with the installation of our waterproofing system.
Our production crew installed a full perimeter of our WaterGuard drainage system into the concrete floor and connected it to a TripleSafe sump pump, which is our most reliable sump pump. The TripleSafe is backed by three layers of protection which includes a battery backup that can pump out 11,500 gallons of water on a full charge. The water leaking into Jordan’s basement is now properly guided through the WaterGuard drainage system into the sump pump. From there, the water gets pushed through the discharge line to the outside of the home. Jordan is glad he chose a system that will protect his basement for the long-term.

Greg H. in West Concord, MN noticed that his garage wall was pulling away from his home and it had created about a half inch gap between his house and the garage. He started looking into foundation repair options and he came across the American Waterworks website. He contacted us for a FREE estimate, so we sent a Design Specialist to his home to inspect his foundation and provide him with a solution. We recommended installing PowerBraces along the shifting foundation to halt any further movement and start to move the foundation back into place. Greg felt that our plan was the most efficient, durable, and cost-effective option, so he chose to move forward with the installation.
Our production team started the installation by securing brackets into the garage floor as well as the rim joists. Then, they installed the PowerBraces into the brackets and tightened them as far as they could go. PowerBraces do not require outside excavation so it is less invasive than other foundation repair options. The installation took a day to complete, but now Greg’s foundation is permanently restored, and he no longer is concerned about the stability of his garage.
