Bill L. in Saint Ansgar, WI had a bowing wall in his basement, so he started looking into repair options. While researching foundation repair, he came across American Waterworks’ website. He contacted us to receive a free estimate, so we sent one of our Design Specialists, Pete Wangen, to his home to inspect his foundation and provide him with a solution. Pete recommended that we install wall anchors to permanently stabilize Bill’s foundation wall. Bill agreed and was pleased with the proposal that Pete developed, so he scheduled the installation.
Our production team drilled small holes in the wall and inserted long metal rods. The metal rods extend through the wall and into the soil outside of the home. Then, the rod is secured with metal plates on each end. They tighten the anchors and the wall starts to straighten and stabilize. The anchors can be tightened over time so that the foundation wall gradually becomes straighter and straighter. Our wall anchors are guaranteed for a lifetime, so Bill is glad he chose the right solution to secure his home for the long-term.

Gordon H. in Hardwick, MN had cracks in two of his basement walls. He didn't think much of the cracks at first, but over time, the walls started bowing inward. Gordon knew how expensive replacing a foundation can be, so he started looking for a foundation repair contractor. While doing research online, he was directed to American Waterworks and he was pleased to see that we are foundation repair experts.
He contacted us to receive a FREE onsite estimate, so we sent our Design Specialist, Eric Hazelton, to his home to find a solution for him.
Eric recommended that we install 11 wall anchors along the two cracked walls in order to permanently secure the foundation. Gordon like Eric's proposal and felt it was a good fit for him, so we went ahead with the installation.
Our team dug holes outside of the home where the rods would be anchored to the soil.

The anchor system ensures that Gordon's walls are now permanently secured and stabilized.
