Reed Hudson from American Waterworks

With a bachelor’s degree in Construction Management and over 15 years of experience in the construction industry, working through solutions with people comes naturally. From presenting to architects, engineers and owners, to pouring concrete driveways and remodeling homes, there isn’t an aspect of the industry that I have not performed. This one-on-one interaction with homeowners is the perfect way to utilize skills learned from experience over the years to provide the best solutions to their home repair needs.

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 Waterproofing, Concrete, and Foundation Repair Specialist” through Foundation Supportworks and Basement Systems 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, basement dehumidification, bowed or cracked basement walls, foundation and concrete slab settlement, as well as radon testing and mitigation.

    Crawl Space Encapsulation in Charles City, IA

    A homeowner in Charles City, IA had moisture in his crawl space and was concerned that the air quality of his home was being compromised, so he contacted American Waterworks. After our Design Specialist thoroughly inspected the crawl space, he determined that the customer would benefit from having his crawl space encapsulated. The homeowner agreed and moved forward with the installation.

    Our production team installed drainage matting, CleanSpace vapor barrier, Foamax walls and our spray foam rim joist insulation. These products work together to keep moisture, pests, and potential mold out. They also help make the space more energy-efficient. The project took less than a day, and the homeowner is confident his crawl space will remain a stable, healthier and more energy efficient space!

    Radon Mitigation System Installed in Albert Lea, MN

    Sandra N. in Albert Lea, MN had her home tested for radon. When the results came back with high levels, she gave American Waterworks a call. Our Design Specialist, Reed Hudson, developed a plan that was unique to her home. 

    Our Foreman, Dakota Merchlewitz, started the installation process by drilling a hole in the slab foundation of the home and connected a PVC pipe. The radon gas is drawn upward, and the pipe guides it to the fan. The fan draws and vents radon safely above and away from the home. Sandra is glad she took the necessary steps to protect herself and her family.

    Bruce W. in Ellendale, MN noticed that his concrete on his driveway was uneven in a couple of spots and was interested in making repairs and cosmetic changes to his home, starting with his driveway and sidewalk. His goal was to have the driveway completely level and have the cracks sealed. After researching concrete repair contractors and receiving estimates, he decided to have American Waterworks repair his 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 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. The process only took a couple of hours, and Bruce was very pleased with the results!

The process took a couple of hours and now Gina can enjoy safe and beautiful concrete for years to come!

    David N. in Saint Michael, MN was concerned about the unsafe concrete walkway leading to his front door.

    Jeff V. in Willmar, MN had a long sidewalk and large patio that had dirty, uneven concrete. He saw advertising for the concrete repair solutions that American Waterworks offers, so he gave us a call to receive a FREE estimate. One of our Design Specialists, Reed Hudson, went to his home to inspect his concrete and build the right repair plan for Jeff’s concrete needs. Reed explained to Jeff that our PolyLevel concrete repair solution is more efficient and cost-effective than traditional concrete repair. He also talked him through the benefits of finishing his concrete repair project with our concrete sealant called SealantPro. Jeff was impressed with Reed’s presentation and his thorough plan to make his concrete beautiful again, so he decided to move forward with the project.

    Our concrete repair experts started the process by drilling small holes into the concrete slabs where they needed to be raised. Then, they injected the polymer foam until the slabs were raised back to their original position. Once the concrete had been raised, they sealed the cracks with our NexusPro sealant to protect the concrete and give it a nice, finished look. The following day, we power washed the concrete and then applied SealantPro. SealantPro is a state-of-the-art material that bonds with concrete on a molecular level, permanently protecting it from water, dirt and other contaminants in a single coat. Jeff was thrilled with the result and was very impressed with our crew! He is happy he chose to repair his concrete through American Waterworks.

    Dan R. in Ivanhoe, MN had learned about the dangers of radon gas and decided that he needed to get his home tested. The test results showed a high level of radon. Our Design Specialist walked him through the radon mitigation installation process and answered his questions. Dan wanted to act quickly and moved forward with an installation date.

    During the installation process, our Foreman, Dakota Merchlewitz, drilled a hole through the floor in the basement to insert a PVC pipe and create a suction point for the radon gas. Then the gas is vented through the pipe and out of the home. Dan is relieved that he took the necessary steps to make sure his family's health is no longer compromised.
