    Customer Testimonial

              Our project was done December 3-4, 2018 in Blue Earth, MN. We actually live about 2.5 hours away, and it is difficult for us to get to Blue Earth often. We were not able to be on-site during the basement update, consisting of powerbraces and anchor. However, the project Foreman, Dylon VanCanneyt, did a great job calling us and advising us as the project was being worked. 1. He told us in advance of potential problems with venting and floor coverings in the areas being worked. No special efforts were needed. 2. He called us when the project was completed. 3. He told me the location of the powerbrace wrench, and gave me instructions on how to use it, along with some more helpful information. We made the trip to Blue Earth in mid-March, and the reinforcement braces and anchor look great! The installation crew did a good job of clean-up, and we are really happy with the work! We researched American Waterworks on the company website, and that was the factor in contacting your company. The Design Specialist, Ryan Powell, we talked with in October prior to the project was professional - no pressue. He was willing to spend several hours with us as we looked at the project needs. We had a discount for signing the day he gave us the estimate - nice savings, and we thought the price was competitive. Thank you!!

    Customer Testimonial

              I had three companies provide estimates for work that needed to be done at our family lake home. From the very start, American Waterworks was clearly the best choice. Ryan was very knowledgeable and polite. He took the time to perform a thorough inspection and walk us through the recommended solutions. He came prepared with handouts and videos that showed exactly what the work would look like, and left us with a bid that day so we knew exactly how much it would cost. The crew that arrived to perform the work was great. They were all very courteous, and their experienced showed in the work. Overlal, top-notch company to work with and I would recommend them to anyone in need of basement/foundation/floor work.

              Things went very well right from the start. They phoned when they were en route what time they would arrive and once they did it took them a very short time to assess the job and they went to work. We were amazed at how fast and methodical the men worked explaining along the way how the work would progress and were happy to answer any questions we had and to address one small change that had to be made. After the job was done they did make a great effort to clean the area and asked us to do a walkthrough to make sure everything was done correctly or if there was anything more that could be done. We are extremely pleased with the work they did and would recommend American Waterworks to anyone with basement water problems. Thanks to Ryan for drawing up the plans and Tremaine and his two excellent co-workers for a job well done.

    Sagging Floors Supported in Charles City, IA

    Joanna T. of Charles City, IA had sagging floors in her basement, causing her to worry about her home's strength. Our Design Specialist, Ryan, knew of Joanna, so he helped her come up with a plan. Ryan proposed our SmartJacks, which are designed to restore and support sagging floor joists. Joanna was confident in the product and its features, so she went ahead with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Dylon V., and his crew installed 15 of our SmartJacks. The nice thing about this system is that it can be adjusted over time to provide additional straightening and it supports heavy loads of more than 60,000 pounds. 

    Joanna was very happy with the work and her peace of mind was restored knowing that she no longer had to worry. We provide FREE estimates for all of our services! Call us today to schedule yours now.

    Tim B. of Rochester, MN had water leaking into his basement, making him worry about the value of his home. He called our office to set up a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Ryan Powell. Ryan inspected the problem and came up with a solution. Tim got all of his questions answered so he moved forward with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Dylon VanCanneyt, and his production crew began the project by breaking out the concrete perimeter of the basement, forming a trench, and installing 24 of our CarbonArmor strips, which are made to reinforce foundation walls and repair cracks. Next, our team applied 100 feet of our CleanSpace Wall System over the Carbon Armor, designed as an extra protectant and made to prevent exposure to mold and humidity. Lastly, Dylon and his crew installed 108 feet of our WaterGuard in the formed trench. Our WaterGuard is made to collect water seepage from basement walls and prevent underground water clogs. To complete the work, our team covered the open gaps with rock and replaced the concrete. Tim said our guys worked diligently to complete the project, and he couldn't have asked for anything more!

    Donald R. in Rochester, MN contacted American Waterworks after he saw one of our commercials on TV. He had cracked and slightly bowing foundation walls, and he was concerned about the structural integrity of his house. He knew how much replacing his foundation entirely could be, and he wanted to fix the problem before it got any worse. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Ryan Powell, to his home to inspect the situation and develop a unique solution.

    Our Foreman, Jesus Covarrubias, and his production crew installed 17 CarbonArmor straps along the foundation to reinforce the bowing walls. The CarbonArmor system utilizes epoxy and carbon fiber straps to strengthen and stabilize the foundation walls. The CarbonArmor reinforcement becomes part of the wall structure and can be hidden with a coat of paint. Donald’s foundation has been stabilized, and his peace of mind restored!

    Dan and Nancy M. of Plymouth, IA had a bowing retaining timber wall, causing them to worry about the value of their home and property. They went on our website and came across our foundation repair products, where he learned that we would be able to fix his issue. He set up a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Ryan. Ryan went to his home, inspected his wall, and drew up the solution of our GeoLock Wall Anchors. Dan and Nancy got all of their questions answered and felt comfortable with the product, so they went ahead with the project. 

    Our Foreman and his crew began the installation by putting block wood over the cracked foundation and inserting five long, metal rods into the wall and tightening and screwing a wall anchor to each rod. This system stabilizes the foundation wall by anchoring the wall to the hard-packed soil beyond the foundation. After the installation, the wall anchors can be tightened over time to further straighten the wall and pull it back to its original position. 

    Dan and Nancy were happy with the work that was completed and couldn't believe the transformation from start to finish!

    Bob E. in Mason City, IA had a sunken concrete driveway and was tired of dealing with the trip hazard and the large bump every time he drove in and out of his garage. He noticed one of our yard signs in his neighbor’s yard and was directed to the American Waterworks website. He was intrigued by our PolyLevel foam concrete solution, so he contacted us to receive a FREE estimate. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Ryan Powell, to meet with Bob and provide a solution.

    Our Foreman, Jeromy, and his production team began the project by breaking out the concrete floor where the floor and wall meet, forming a trench. Inside the trench, our team installed our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain. Our WaterGuard is the most common interior drainage system that we provide for homeowners because of its easily accessible service ports, its ability to prevent water clogs, and its design to collect water from basement walls. Next, our team installed our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier around the wall perimeter, which prevents mold and humidity, and saves money on energy costs. To finish the installation, our team filled the open gaps with river rock and added new concrete over them. Alanna was happy with the work that was done, and had a great experience!

    Ken S. in Thorton, IA contacted American Waterworks after seeing one of our ads in the local newspaper. His home already had two sump pumps, but water was still seeping into the basement, and he was looking for more options.

    Our Foreman, Matt Zeller, and his production crew were able to swap out the sump pumps and also installed our SaniDry XP dehumidifier to take care of any humidity in the basement. For normal functioning, the TripleSafe has a Zoeller ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, Zoeller ½ hp pump will take over. In case of a power outage, our UltraSump battery backup sump pump, set at the highest level, will pump 11,500 gallons or more on a fully charged battery.

    Channel Anchors Stabilize Foundation at Stadheim Properties in Owatonna, MN

    The representatives at Stadheim Properties in Owatonna, MN contacted American Waterworks after being referred by another contractor. The building had two foundation walls that were cracked and bowing. They were remodeling the building at the time and wanted an estimate and the work done as soon as possible. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Ryan Powell, to meet with the representatives, evaluate the situation, and propose a solution for the building. Ryan recommended our Geo-Lock Channel Anchors to permanently stabilize the walls. 

    Our Foreman, Matt Zeller, and his production crew got to work installing the 26 Geo-Lock Channel Anchors. They began the project by excavating the soil outside of the building and drilling small holes through the foundation wall that correspond to each anchor location. The steel anchor rods were driven through the holes, extending all the way to the earth anchor holes where an anchor plate was securely attached. After fastening the earth anchor outside, the crew mounted the steel channel anchors to the foundation wall on the inside and secured the channel anchors to the floor for optimal bracing and failure protection. The Geo-Lock system stops the foundation walls from moving inwards and also provides the opportunity to straighten the walls over time. The representatives at Stadheim Properties were happy with the results and glad they chose to invest in a long-term solution.

    Our Foreman, Jesus Covarrubias, and his production crew drilled small holes through the failing block foundation and into the soil surrounding the home. They secured each end of the metal rods with anchor plates and tightened them as far as they would go. Wall anchors should be tightened over time to continue the process of straightening the damaged wall. Having wall anchors installed saved this foundation from failing completely and now Christina’s peace of mind is restored knowing her foundation is permanently stabilized.
