Mitch, my serice tech, was very knowledgeable and personable. He answered my questions fully. I appreciate Mitch for adding written notes on my "service record."

    Customer Testimonial

              We are SO impressed with our basement in Lanesboro!!!!!! It went from a gross swamp to livable space. We never thought it would be this improved. Even halfway would have been worth the money, but now we have doubled our usable space! Thank you so much for saving the basement in our Victorian! The extensive renovation upstairs is definitely worth it now!

              Excellent service from initial appointment through the installation (which was neat and clean). We had one small issue, American Waterworks came back and fixed it! Not a problem since. Also, when I call, they call back, like immediately. So many businesses need lessons on that!

    Customer Testimonial

              We purchased a home with an American Waterworks Basement System with dual sump pumps in November. We scheduled an annual service visit in January in order to learn about the system and make sure everything was functioning correctly. Then, one of the sump pumps went out (at the age of 21 years) this week. For both service calls, the technicians, Darin, in January, and Mitch, in March, were professional, extremely knowledgeable, very personable, and efficient. They truly went above and beyond to teach us about the system and provide us with helpful tips and pointers. We could not be happier with the service we have received from American Waterworks!

    Jerry J. of New Prague, MN

    Customer Testimonial

              I had American Waterworks level my driveway with foam and had them grout the cracks as well. Everything was very organized from beginning to end. Emails reminding me that the date was approaching, they came when they said they would, and did an excellent job. Now the important part...I had just a bit of settling so I called them (they guaranteed their work). They scheduled someone to come out and take a look and within two weeks they sent a crew to re-level a few places. I couldn't be happier with American Waterworks!

    Customer Testimonial

              I've had the American Waterworks foundation repair system in my home for a few years. The office staff is always great on the phone and very helpful. The design specialist and service technicians are very pleasant to talk to. When the crew installed my project, they were very diligent about their work. The service technicians that have been to my home since the installation have all been very courteous and good about answering my questions.

    Basement Waterproofing Contractor in Cresco, IA

    Perry M. of Cresco, IA had water leaking into their basement, so they wanted to get it inspected by a professional. Our service technician, Mitchell, went to Perry's home, carefully inspected their problems, and proposed a solution that would work for them and their needs. Perry was confident in the solution so they went ahead with the project. 

    Our Foreman and his production team began the project by breaking out the concrete floor perimeter, forming a trench. Inside the trench, our crew installed our WaterGuard Below Floor Drain, which is an interior drainage system that prevents mud clogs and collects water seepage from basement walls. Next, our crew installed our ZenWall Insulated Panels around the entire basement wall perimeter, which gives the basement a finished look benefits your home by adding insulation and creating a heat-reflective vapor barrier on the walls. To complete the project, our crew filled the open gaps with river rock and applied a new layer of concrete over them.

    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!

    Foundation Repair in Hampton, MN

    Lisa G. of Hampton, MN had bowed foundation walls in her basement, causing her to worry about the structural build of her home. Our Service Technician, Mitchell Sobotta, was at her home for an annual maintenance and talked to her about our PowerBrace Wall Repair System for her foundation problems. She felt confident in the product and what it could do for her home, so she went ahead and scheduled an installation date. 

    Our Foreman, Spencer Garland, and his production team installed eight of our PowerBraces, which are steel beams that are made to keep bowing walls at bay. The PowerBrace System is designed to stabilize failing basement walls and provide the potential to straighten walls over time. Along with that, PowerBraces include a zinc-coating that protects it from corrosion. Lisa was happy with the repairs and was grateful she did not have to worry about further foundation failure.

    PJ B. of Wabasso, MN had water leaking through the walls of her basement, making her feel nervous about water damages. American Waterworks provided him with prior foundation work, so he decided to go with us again for his basement waterproofing repairs. Our Service Technician, Mitchell Sobotta, sold him the project and answered all the questions that he had regarding the installation. PJ moved forward with the project and scheduled a date for the installation. 

    Our Foreman, Jesus Covarrubias, and his production team began the repairs by breaking out the concrete floor perimeter, forming a trench. In the trench, our team installed our WaterGuard System, which serves as an underground drain, prevents water clogs, and collects water seepage from basement walls. Next, our crew installed our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier, which prevents mold and humidity build-up, covers any unnecessary holes, and gives the room a neat and clean appearance. Lastly, Jesus and his crew installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. Our TripleSafe is the best sump pump we provide for homeowners, it comes with three levels or protection, and it solves all three water problems in one system. To complete the project, our crew covered the open gaps with river rock and applied new concrete over it. PJ was happy with the repairs and had another great experience with our team!

    Basement Waterproofing and Foundation Repair in Marshall, MN

    At American Waterworks, we provide annual maintenances on the systems that we install for our customers. One of our customers, in particular, Tabitha M. of Marshall, MN had our Service Technician, Mitchell Sobotta, checking up on the system that we had installed in her home in 2018. While he was there, he inspected some areas of the home that Tabitha had concerns with; a cracked wall with water seeping through the cracks. Mitchell proposed our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier, our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain, and our PowerBrace Foundation Wall Repair System. The homeowner was confident that our products would do the trick, so she followed through with Mitchell's proposal and set up a date for the installation. 

    Our Foreman, Jeromy Anderson, started the project by breaking out the concrete floor where the floor meets the wall, forming a trench. In the trench, our team installed our WaterGuard. Our WaterGuard is the most common interior drainage system that we provide for homeowners because of its easily accessible service ports, its ability to collect water seepage from basement walls, and its prevention from mud clogs. Next, our team installed our CleanSpace, which prevents mold and mildew, gives the basement a neat and clean appearance, and it hides away any holes or divots. Lastly, Jeromy and our crew installed our PowerBraces, which are made to stabilize failing walls and straighten them over time. To complete the installation, our team filled the open gaps with river rock and applied new concrete over it, ensuring the space was neater than when they found it. Tabitha was happy with the job and had a great experience!
