    Customer Testimonial

              The crew came earlier than scheduled, worked extremely hard, only took a short lunch break. They explained things to me well and asked me what i wanted done if something came up and gave me what options I had. I have a crawl space that they had to go in for the piping to the sump pump. They were very polite and what an amazing job they did. Very impressed with their knowledge and work, I would Highly recommend them to anyone with water problems in their basement.

    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!!

    Waterproofing in Sparta, WI

    Sue A. in Sparta, WI was tired of dealing with a wet basement after heavy rains and snow melt. She had an older basement, and the water was seeping in through the small cracks where the wall meets the floor. She contacted American Waterworks for a FREE estimate, and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, to meet with her and evaluate the situation. Rick designed a thorough plan and assured Sue that our waterproofing system would provide a permanent solution. 

    Our Foreman, Dylon VanCanneyt, and his production crew were able to successfully waterproof Bryan’s basement by first removing the concrete around the inside perimeter of the basement. Next, they installed 78 feet of our WaterGuard drainage System and our SuperSump sump pump. Then, they installed two feet of our CleanSpace vapor barrier along the walls, filled the gaps with rock, and replaced the concrete. Water is now guided through the WaterGuard, to the SuperSump, and is quietly, and efficiently discharged from the home. Sue was thrilled with the results, and glad she chose to invest in a permanent solution for her home.

    Severely Damaged Foundation Restored in Rochester, MN

    Lori B. in Rochester, MN contacted American Waterworks after realizing that the foundation of her home was failing. She wanted to receive a FREE estimate, so we sent one of our Design Specialists, Dustin Loftus, to inspect her home and provide her with a solution. Dustin developed a thorough plan to permanently restore her foundation.

    Using wall anchors, our production crew drilled small holes through the failing block foundation and into the soil surrounding the home. In order to straighten the wall, they had to dig out the soil pushing against the foundation. They secured each end of the metal rods with anchor plates and tightened them as far as they would go. This process gradually straightened the foundation wall, and permanently secured it. Having wall anchors installed saved this foundation from failing altogether and saved the homeowner from the expenses of a full foundation replacement.

    Ellen T. in Rochester, MN was suffering from a wet basement. She had an older home, and the foundation leaked every time it rained. She was tired of dealing with the mess, and she was concerned about mold and other possible health implications.

    Our Foreman, Dylon VanCanneyt, and his production crew removed the concrete around the perimeter of the basement to make a trench for the 160 feet of our WaterGuard drainage system.

Lastly, they filled back the gaps with rock, replaced the concrete, and cleaned up their work area.

    Nathan U. in Rochester, MN had our waterproofing system installed in his home. During one of his annual maintenance appointments our Senior Service Technician, Ben McKee, noticed his garage floor was uneven, and he feared the problem was only going to get worse. After a thorough inspection, he was able to recommend our Foundation Push Pier System to provide a permanent solution to the settlement issue. Nathan was impressed with Ben’s evaluation and the products presented, and he moved forward with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Matt Zeller, and his production crew started the installation by digging out the soil surrounding the home where the foundation was settling. Then, they installed heavy-duty steel brackets below the footing of the foundation. Next, rugged, interlocking steel pier sections are hydraulically driven through the bracket until bedrock or stable soil is reached. The weight of the home is then transferred through the piers to load-bearing soil. Lastly, the crew installed our SentrySeal membrane to seal off any cracks and prevent water from entering the basement. They replaced the soil and cleaned up their work area. Nathan is glad he chose to invest in the stability of his home, and we are glad we could restore his peace of mind!
