Title: Design Specialist

Hometown: Lake Crystal, MN

Ryan Powell from American Waterworks

I have been working in the basement/foundation industry for 16 years. I wanted to work with the biggest and best company in my industry and that is American Waterworks. I enjoy helping people to maintain property value, improve their quality of life and restore peace of mind.

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.  We at American Waterworks 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, Concrete problems, enabling them to get more out of their homes. I also enjoy spending time with my son and 2 dogs, fishing, hunting, camping, disc golf, and kayaking.

  • Cracked Foundation Repaired with Wall Anchors in Forest City, IA

    After

    Christina M. in Forest City, IA noticed some cracking and bowing of her basement wall and was concerned about the pressure that was being put on her foundation. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Ryan Powell, to inspect her home and provide her with the best solution. Ryan developed a thorough, unique proposal to permanently restore her foundation. Christina approved of the plan and scheduled the installation. 

    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.

    Danielle O. in Excelsior, MN had water leaking into her basement causing damage to her carpet, floors, and home. She tired of dealing with a wet basement and was concerned about the health implications it could cause, so she contacted American Waterworks to receive a FREE estimate. One of our Design Specialists, Ryan Powell, went to her home to inspect her basement and design a unique solution to fit her needs. Danielle was pleased with the proposal and was eager to have the waterproofing system installed, so she scheduled the installation.

    Our Foreman, Matt Zeller, and his crew installed 61 feet of WaterGuard around the perimeter of the room and a SuperSump sump pump in the corner. They also installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier along the walls to protect the room from moisture and potential mold growth. The WaterGuard properly drains water to the sump pump and from there, the water is pumped through the discharge line and expelled from the home. Danielle is pleased that her basement is now a dry, healthier space and she is glad she chose to invest in the long-term protection of her home.

    Laura W. in Rochester, MN noticed a slight bow and some cracking throughout the walls in her basement. While researching foundation repair options, she contacted American Waterworks for a FREE estimate. We sent our Design Specialist, Ryan Powell, to her home to inspect the foundation and provide Laura with a solution. She was happy with Ryan's proposal and the CarbonArmor® Wall Reinforcing System that we offer. She set a date with our production crew to install the project!

    Our Foreman, Jesus Covarrubias, and his crew installed the series of 13 straps along the foundation walls to halt further movement and cracks. CarbonArmor® straps are a quick, affordable way to stabilize block and poured concrete walls that have cracked and that are showing signs of bowing. And because the straps don’t protrude from the wall, the repair can be easily covered with mortar, paint, or light wall panels. The installation process moved quickly, and Laura was happy with the result. She is glad she made the investment to protect the foundation of her home.
