Schedule Annual Maintenance
Joseph has been with American Waterworks since September of 2017. Prior to joining our team, he gained experience in landscaping and the construction industry. His day to day work includes helping with the installation of our foundation repair systems. He enjoys working for American Waterworks because it is great exercise and it keeps him busy!
In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his kids and family, cooking, trying new places to eat, and teaching his kids how to write and draw. It is a pleasure to have Joseph on our team!
Alton in Albert Lea, MN had large cracks throughout his basement walls. He was concerned about the pressure that was being placed on his foundation and wanted to secure his walls before the damage became any worse. He contacted American Waterworks and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Pete Wangen, to his home to inspect his situation and provide him with a FREE estimate. Pete determined that we would be able to permanently repair his foundation by installing PowerBraces, which is a much more cost-effective solution compared to replacing the foundation. Alton was pleased with Pete’s solution, so they scheduled the installation.
Our Foreman, Hugo Sanchez, and his crew installed 7 PowerBraces against the walls. PowerBraces are strong steel I-beams that have a special rust-resistant zinc coating to ensure that your system will look and perform like new for years to come. By installing the PowerBraces, we immediately halted the inward movement of the foundation walls. The PowerBraces should be tightened over time, which can gradually straighten the walls. Alton was pleased with the end result and he is glad he chose to permanently restore his foundation.
