    Customer Testimonial

              We saw American Waterworks truck at our neighbor's house, which led us to research the company. The customer care staff were very nice to deal with and very quick to respond. My Design Specialist, Michel, was very good to deal with and excellent in addressing my questions. He was an excellent communicator! And the design seemed great. The crew that came out to my home was fantastic! They were so nice to deal with and they were even kind to my dog! Overall, the whole process was great. Hopefully this will help our basement to be dry. We look forward to the spring when they'll dig the line for the sump pump outlet. Thank you!

              American Waterworks was recommended by Dean Frokjery with Perma-Dry Waterproofing in St. Croix Falls, WI and I'm very happy with my decision to go with you guys. The office staff was very responsive and helpful. As with all high-quality enterprises, you guys were "bunched up" but you got back to me with an earlier opening, which was awesome! The Design Specialist who came to my home and analyzed our problem and suggested a solution was absolutely outstanding! We had work done by two other companies and had bad results, but this representative was fantastic! The installation process and crew was also the best! They were hardworking, polite, and competent. We are very pleased, and we look forward to your maintenance visit to check on everything for us. Thank you!

    Crawl Space Waterproofing in Camp Douglas, WI

    Rick and Vicki S. of Camp Douglas, WI had water seeping through their crawl space, making them worry about mold, rats, insects, and other pests. They went online and came across American Waterworks and our crawl space waterproofing products. They called our office line and scheduled a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Charles Haldeman. Charles went to their home, inspected their problems, and came up with a solution that fit their needs. Rick and Vicki were confident in the product and warranty, so they went ahead with the installation. 

    Our Foreman, Cole Brinkman, and his production team started the project by installing 1,431 feet of drainage matting, which gives the water that floods into the crawl space a channel underneath the crawl space liner. It is a useful piece of material in the process to keep any crawl space dry. Next, Cole and his team installed 1,596 feet of our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier, which keeps away odors, mold, termites, cockroaches, mice, and other pests that need excess moisture to survive. Rick and Vicky were both very happy with the work and had a great experience!

    Robert K. in Cashton, WI had several cracks in the walls in his basement and was concerned about the pressure that was being put on his foundation. He started looking into foundation repair contractors and was glad to learn that American Waterworks is the leading contractor in foundation repair in the region. We sent our Design Specialist, Rick Weber, to his home to evaluate the situation and propose a unique solution to fit his needs and goals. Robert approved of the plan and moved forward with an installation date. 

    Our Foreman, Cole Brinkman, and production crew got to work installing our Geo-Lock Channel Anchor System. They started the process by drilling small holes through the brick wall for long metal rods to be inserted. The rods are then stabilized on each end with a channel anchor. The Channel Anchor System provides a permanent solution for bowing, buckling, tilting, or inward-moving foundation walls that are demonstrating signs of extreme wall failure. This solution includes a channel anchor that mounts on the foundation floor and wall for optimal bracing and failure protection. Robert can rest easy knowing that his foundation is now permanently stabilized.

Eric developed a plan to have our team install anchors along the bowing wall to secure and stabilize it. 

    The installation process took two days, and Gordon was pleased that he could see immediate results. Our crew left him with a tightening kit so that he could continue tightening the anchors over time until the wall is completely straightened.

    Foundation Walls Repaired in Slayton, MN

    Josh M. of Slayton, MN had cracks along his foundation wall, and he wanted to get it repaired as soon as possible. He heard about American Waterworks on the radio, so he decided to give our office a call. Our customer care department set him up with a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Jared Bruns. Jared went to his home to carefully inspect the foundation wall and come up with a solution. Josh got all of his questions answered about the repairs, so he went ahead with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Cole Brinkman, and his production team began the installation by digging five holes outside of the home beyond the foundation. Next, our team inserted a long, metal rod from the inside foundation to each hole outside of the home. On the ends of each rod, our team tightened and secured a GeoLock Wall Anchor. This wall anchor system will permanently stabilize foundation walls by anchoring the walls to the hard-packed, compact soil. After installation, wall anchors can be tightened over time to further straighten the foundation wall. To complete the project, our team backfilled the holes and replaced the soil, leaving the yard looking neater than when they found it. Josh was very happy with the final product!
