As a homeowner, I understand how important it is to feel safe and comfortable in your home. With my customer service experience, I know what it means to take care of the customer.

American Waterworks saw what an asset I would be to the company with my experience and eagerness to help people and brought me on board. I have been thoroughly trained and have earned the highly-esteemed title of “Certified Concrete Repair Specialist” through Foundation Supportworks International Contractor Network.

American Waterworks is a certified member of the Basement Systems network of dealers. Basement Systems is the world’s largest affiliation of basement waterproofing contractors.  American Waterworks is also a proud member of National Radon Defense and Foundation Supportworks.  All our representatives are fully certified to preform inspections and repairs.  We have over thirty products to solve the problems that yesterday’s systems presented. At American Waterworks, we help our customers with problems ranging from groundwater seepage to basement dehumidification, from bowed or cracked basement walls, to foundation and concrete slab settlement, as well as radon testing and mitigation.

I enjoy meeting with homeowners and helping them solve their radon, foundation and concrete problems, which enables them to get more out of their homes. I also enjoy spending time with homeowners getting to know them and learning about how I can best help them.

    Customer Testimonial

              The people of American Waterworks are miracle workers -- and just really good people. Every person I've worked with within this company really cares about their customers. They do the right thing and do meticulous work. They recently helped restore my 1900 Victorian to its original glory by raising the house 5 inches on one side after decades of settling -- we're talking old, cranky beams that have been askew for years and years. My foundation is made of stone and where most foundation companies wouldn't touch this job, American Waterworks was up to the task. They set my expectations that maybe my floors wouldn't be level. But under the professional leadership of the foreman on the job, darned if they didn't level those floors. Oh and they did it in a week -- they even came on a Saturday to finish the job. I am so thankful for their understanding, respect and the care they took with helping me realize the vision I had for this home when I bought it. 5 stars all the way.

    Push Piers Installed in Sparta, WI

    Diane B. in Sparta, WI contacted American Waterworks after seeing one of our commercials on TV. She noticed her garage floor was uneven, and she feared the problem was only going to get worse. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Brian Ramirez, to meet with Diane and evaluate the situation. After his inspection, Brian recommended our Foundation Push Pier System to provide a permanent solution to her settlement issue. 

    Our Foreman, Matt Zeller, and his production crew started the installation by excavating the soil surrounding the home where the foundation had started settling until they reached the bottom of the footings. Then, they secured brackets under the footings and inserted the piers until they hit competent, supportive soil. The piers transfer the weight of the home to the supportive soil, preventing further settlement. The crew wrapped up the project with installing our frost protection system to protect against frost damage. Then, they replaced the soil and cleaned up their work area. Diane was happy she chose to invest in the stability of her home, and we are glad we could restore her peace of mind!

    Cracked Garage Floor Repaired in Eleva, WI

    Barbara G. in Eleva, WI was unhappy with her uneven and cracked garage floor. She wanted it completely level and to have the cracks sealed. After researching concrete repair contractors and receiving estimates, she decided to have American Waterworks repair her concrete.

    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 in the floor 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. The process only took a couple of hours, and Barabara was very pleased with the results!

    Dan K. in Eau Claire, WI was dealing with cracked and sunken concrete on his driveway, causing multiple trip hazards. After researching concrete repair options, he was curious to learn more about our PolyLevel concrete repair solution, so he contacted us for a FREE estimate. One of our Design Specialists, Brian Ramirez, went onsite to inspect his concrete and design the right plan to restore his driveway. Dan was pleased to learn that our PolyLevel foam injection is faster, less invasive, durable and more affordable than traditional mudjacking, so he chose to move forward with the project.

    Our concrete repair experts drilled small holes into the concrete slabs for the foam to be injected. As the foam was injected, it expanded and filled voids beneath the concrete, which causes the slabs to raise. They injected the foam until the slabs had been raised to create a safe and level surface. Then, they sealed the cracks in the concrete with our NexusPro joint sealant to protect the concrete and give it a nice, finished look. The entire process only took half a day to complete, and now Dan and his family can enjoy a beautiful driveway without the worry of a trip hazard for years to come!
