Schedule Annual Maintenance

Marvin L. in Bangor, WI was tired of dealing with the water seeping into his basement. It was beginning to cause him stress, and he wanted a permanent solution. He contacted American Waterworks for a FREE estimate, and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, to evaluate the situation and propose the best, cost-effective solution for his home.
Our Foreman, Austin Lucas, and his production crew began the waterproofing project by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and laying our WaterGuard drainage system. Next, they installed our recommended TripleSafe sump pump, which is backed by three levels of protection. Then, the crew installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier along the walls and our SaniDry dehumidifier to take care of any humidity. With our CleanSpace installed, any water seepage coming through the wall will be directed down into the drainage system. Marvin is happy with the results and glad he chose a permanent solution for his home!

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!
Bill L. in Nicollet, MN noticed some cracking in his basement wall that was getting larger over time and putting pressure on the foundation. He was concerned about the bowing walls and the potential damage it could cause. After doing some research online, he came across our website and was happy to learn that we have been restoring foundations for over 30 years! We sent one of our Design Specialists, Eric Hazelton, to evaluate the situation and propose the best, cost-effective solution. He was impressed with our products and Eric’s presentation, and he chose to move forward with the project.
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. Bill was pleased with the entire process and is glad he made the investment to restore the value of his home!
