    I will continue to use American Waterworks for any below-ground help and I will recommend them. I have already! My basement is dry and my home was built in 1926. Nearing the 100 year mark!  The two men that worked with Jeromy were Lane and Jeremiah. Terrific crew! They were personable, explained things to me, notified me of "hot" electrical wire behind the paneling. I contacted my electrician right away. They are very conscientious!

    Customer Testimonial

              Hello American Waterworks. Today, I had two replacement windows installed in my basement. I am very pleased with the finished job. Jeromy, Lane and Jeremiah did an excellent job. They introduced themselves immediately when they arrived. Each of them had a smile and they were neat, clean and polite. They did a great job dismantling the existing windows, installing the new ones and explaining the process. They told me of a bare electrical wire, after removing a wall panel, which I greatly appreciated. They did an excellent clean up, inside and out! As a reputable company, you should be pleased to have such good representatives. Please know that this crew is exceptional. They also informed me of an old termite tunnel, which I will follow up on immediately. I would not have known about it without them telling me and showing me. I highly recommend them as a terrific work crew. Also, your sales representative, Ben McKee, was knowledgeable and personable. He appears to enjoy his job and no doubt, is a strong link in your business chain. He explained the water leakage was not from the Waterworks system, that I have, but from the windows. I know a bit about construction, but he answered every question that I asked him and was spot on. I will feel very comfortable recommending your company to those I meet. I have already told many in the Preston area about American Waterworks....so keep up the good work! Your product is very good (we first installed our unit in the early 1980s) and your staff is exceptional. Thank you for your continued service.

              Jeromy, Lane, and Jeremiah was the crew that worked to make my basement water-free. They are three of the nicest gentleman and were hard working. Each day, they were here by 9:30am and worked nonstop except for lunch and a break until around 8pm each day. They asked if it waws alright to work late and of course I said yes. They explained their process as they went along. They explained it so I could understand it. They worked so diligently and worked well together. I can't say enough great things about them and their work. In fact, they ran out of sealer and Jeromy, the crew chief is coming back on Saturday to complete it. They represented your company so well as I am sure they do where they work. Keep that crew together and employed for a long time. Thank you Jeromy, Lane, and Jeremiah for a great experience!

    Wet Basement Restored in Bangor, WI

    Marvin L. in Bangor, WI was tired of dealing with the water seeping into his basement. It was beginning to cause him stress, and he wanted a permanent solution. He contacted American Waterworks for a FREE estimate, and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, to evaluate the situation and propose the best, cost-effective solution for his home. 

    Our Foreman, Austin Lucas, and his production crew began the waterproofing project by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and laying our WaterGuard drainage system. Next, they installed our recommended TripleSafe sump pump, which is backed by three levels of protection. Then, the crew installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier along the walls and our SaniDry dehumidifier to take care of any humidity. With our CleanSpace installed, any water seepage coming through the wall will be directed down into the drainage system. Marvin is happy with the results and glad he chose a permanent solution for his home!

    Dan B. in La Crosse, WI contacted American Waterworks after being referred to us by a previous satisfied customer. Water had been leaking into the basement for years, and he was ready to contact a professional. We sent one of our Design Specialists to meet with Dan, inspect his home, and propose a customized plan to fit his needs. 

    Our Foreman, Austin Lucas, and his production crew began the waterproofing project by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and through the middle of the floor to create a trench for the 124 feet of our WaterGuard drainage system and for the feed line. Next, they installed our TripleSafe sump pump. Then, they installed spray foam in the rim joists and a combination of our ZenWall and Foamax Insulated Panels on the walls for the ultimate transformation and energy bill savings. Lastly, the crew installed our SaniDry dehumidier to take care of any humidity. Dan also chose to replace his basement windows with our EverLast Windows with our WellDuct System for a cleaner and more updated look and to drain any leaking water into the perimeter WaterGuard system. The combination of these waterproofing products restored Dan’s basement, and he is glad he chose a permanent solution for his home!

    Iron Ochre Clogged Sump Pump Repaired in Houston, MN

    Tammy E. in Houston, MN had water seeping into her basement through cracks in the floor. She also noticed a foul smell and some rust-colored stains. She contacted American Waterworks, and we sent our Design Specialist, Mike Radosevich, to her home to evaluate her situation. He discovered that Tammy had a buildup of iron ochre in her old sump pump. He explained that it is not a known health hazard but can quickly clog a French drain system. He presented her with our WaterGuard IOS Perimeter Drain Channel, which is ideal for managing this problem. Tammy was impressed with Mike’s presentation and our products and moved forward with an installation date. 

    Our Foreman, Austin Lucas, and his production crew were able to permanently waterproof Tammy’s basement by installing 209 feet of our WaterGuard IOS System. The wide-open design of the drain helps it resist clogs, while a removable lid allows for easy access and maintenance. Then, the crew installed our recommended TripleSafe sump pump. The WaterGuard properly drains water to the sump pump and from there, the water is pumped through the discharge line and expelled from the home. Tammy was impressed with the installation, and is happy knowing that her problem is solved and her basement is dry!

    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.

    Patricia H. in Waltham, MN was tired of dealing with her sunken, uneven driveway and walkway around her home. She contacted American Waterworks for a FREE estimate, and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Kevin Beseman, to evaluate the situation and propose a unique concrete repair solution. Patricia was impressed with our 3 part Concrete Protection System and Kevin’s presentation, so she moved forward with the project. 

    Our concrete repair experts drilled small holes into the concrete to inject a polymer foam called PolyLevel. Once the foam is injected into the concrete, the foam expands and raises it. They injected the foam into multiple spots throughout the driveway and sidewalk until the concrete was raised and level to its original position. Then, they sealed the cracks with our NexusPro sealant to protect the concrete and give it a nice, finished look. Lastly, they used our SealantPro to seal the concrete, restoring quality and protecting against UV, weather, oil and water damage for 3 to 5 times longer than other concrete sealants. Patricia was pleased with the results and is looking forward to enjoying her newly restored concrete for years to come!

    Pat N. in Dodge Center, MN has a large crawl space under her home. She noticed that the pipes had started freezing in the winter and that pests were getting in through that space. She saw that American Waterworks can waterproof and encapsulate crawl spaces on one of our commercials, so she decided to contact us and see how we could help her.

    We sent one of our Design Specialists, Pete Wangen, to her home to look at her crawl space and give her a FREE estimate. Pete was able to develop a solid plan to waterproof and encapsulate her crawl space, so she would not have to deal with these frustrations again. She was pleased with Pete's proposal, so an installation date was set.

    Basement Waterproofing and Foundation Repair in Kensett, IA

    Connie K. of Kensett, IA had water leaking into her basement and her floor joists from above were sagging into her crawl space. She was nervous about the issues she was having, so she asked her peers what kind of contractor could help her with this specific problem. One of her friends worked with American Waterworks for their home repair needs, so they referred her to American Waterworks, so she set up an inspection. Our service technician, Mitchell Sobotta, went to her home, carefully examined the problems, and drew up a solution for her basement waterproofing and foundation repair needs. Connie was confident in Mitchell's proposal and presentation, so she signed the contract and scheduled an installation date. 

    Our Foreman, Lane, and his production team began the project by installing four of our SmartJacks, which are made to correct issues like sloping floors. Our SmartJacks can support more than 60,000 pounds and are galvanized to prevent corrosion. Next, our team installed our CleanSpace Encapsulation Vapor Barrier to cover the entire floor. This special barrier is made to prevent mold and humidity and transforms the crawl space into a usable storage space. Lastly, our team installed our Foamax Wall Panels around the entire basement wall perimeter. Our Foamax is designed to provide comfort and energy-efficiency while making the walls look clean and bright. Connie was very happy with the repairs and had a great experience from start to finish!

    High Levels of Radon Mitigated in Minneapolis, MN

    Josh L. in Minneapolis, MN discovered the adverse effects that radon gas has on people's health and he became concerned because his home had not yet been tested. He started looking for a company to test his home, and he came across American Waterworks at a local home show. He was glad to see that along with concrete repair, basement waterproofing and foundation repair, we also offer radon testing and mitigation. He gave us a call and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Shane Nephew, to his home to set up the test. 48 hours later, Shane returned to read the results. The results showed that Josh did in fact have unsafe levels of radon in his home. Shane explained the risks of not having a radon mitigation system  installed and he walked Josh through the installation process. Josh wanted to have the system installed as soon as possible, so they scheduled the project. 

    Our radon mitigation specialists drilled a hole through the concrete in the basement to create a suction point for the gas. Then, a PVC pipe is inserted which goes up through the house and exits the home through the roof. A fan is installed at the top of the PVC pipe to ensure that the radon gas is being pushed away from the home. The installation took only one day to complete, and Josh is glad he took action to protect his and his family’s health.

    Has your home been tested for radon? Don't compromise your health any longer! Contact us here to schedule an appointment.

    Matt T. of Shakopee, MN had water leaking through the corner of his unfinished basement wall during heavy rainstorms and he wanted to get it looked at it before it got any worse. He knew of an employee at American Waterworks, so he scheduled a free estimate with our Design Specialist, Tim Schneider.

He was confident in Tim's proposal and presentation, so he followed through with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Lane Schlobohm, and his production team started the work by installing our CleanSpace Half Wall System Vapor Barrier around the basement wall perimeter, which is made to prevent mold and mildew, and it acts as an extra wall protectant. Next, our team installed our DryTrak Drain Pipe System, which is permanently installed above the floor. Our crew drilled a weep hole through each foundation block to enable the water to pour through the holes and into the drain pipe. The installation only took one day and Matt was happy with the work that was completed!

    Jerome B. of Cold Spring, MN had cracks in his foundation, and water was leaking into his basement, causing him to worry about potential water damage in his basement. He got in contact with American Waterworks and finding us on HomeAdvisor. He called our office line and scheduled a FREE estimate with our Design Specialist, Shane. Shane went to Jerome's home, inspected his basement, and determined the solution of our WaterGuard Below Floor Drain, CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier, TripleSafe Sump Pump System, and our Aprilaire Dehumidifier. Jerome was confident in all of our products and their warranties, so he got a date scheduled for the installation. 

    Our Foreman, Lane, and his production team started the installation by breaking out the concrete floor perimeter, forming a trench. In the trench, our crew installed our WaterGuard Below Floor Drain, which prevents water clogs and serves as an underground drain. Next, our team installed our CleanSpace Wall Vapor Barrier, which prevents mold and humidity, and gives the basement a neat, clean appearance. Then, our crew installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump System and our Aprilaire Dehumidifier. Our TripleSafe is the most efficient sump pump system that we have because of its triple layers of protection, and its ability to solve all three water problems in one unit. Our Aprilaire Dehumidifier creates healthy air and reduces the number of viruses in the air. To complete the installation, Lane and his team filled the open gaps in the floor with river rock and pea gravel and applied a new layer of concrete, ensuring the basement water neater and cleaner than when they found it. Jerome had a good experience with our team and was grateful we were able to help him!
