Title: Foreman

Hometown: Jamestown, ND

Geno Mclain from American Waterworks

Geno started working at American Waterworks in November of 2019. He worked in masonry for nine years and in electrical, plumbing, and framing for three years, all of which play a huge role in his job here. His day to day on the job consists of a variety of construction and destruction with his crew, and working together as a team at every job site. As a radon Foreman, his main role is installing our radon mitigation systems in customers' homes. His favorite part about working for American Waterworks is completing each and every job at the best of his ability and driving throughout the countryside. 

In Geno's spare time, he likes to take long walks in the woods and spend quality time with his family. We are excited to introduce Geno as part of our production team at American Waterworks!

    I am very happy, and thank you and the American Waterworks crews! I got our radon test back (0.7 pCi/L) - wow! I am amazed! Also, it rained hard the other day and I wanted the water drain away perfectly on the new raised patio. Thank you for the professional and well done job!

    Customer Testimonial

              They are great. They did a fantastic job. It was a very hot day and I'm sure the install team wanted to get it done as soon as possible before the heat got too bad so I understand. The price I paid was reasonable. I was on the fence on whether I was going to do the radon install on my own or not, so I had a number in my head and they were under that number so I paid that day. American Waterworks exceeded my expectations for this install. I will absolutely have them back and will not waste my time calling anywhere else. This is the place from start to finish. There was never any pressure to do more than I wanted to. Brian came to my house, gave me the estimate, and he, in my opinion, was the best non-sales salesman ever. Never did he push anything, which is great. Then, Geno and his partner showed up to do the install and answered any questions I had. They were very patient with my one million questions. Katie followed up with me after the installation. I only wish I could tell more people about this place. Thank you!

    Customer Testimonial

              I highly recommend this company. We had high radon levels in our home and the American Waterworks team did a great job installing our mitigation system. Before the install, Michel, our sales rep, came in and explained the entire process in great detail. The install team was on-time and very professional. We just received our test results and we are at less than a 0.7 pCi/L from a 9.7! You will likely find a company willing to do this job for a little less but you get what you pay for with American Waterworks!

              My daughter got work done by American Waterworks and she was very pleased with the sump pump work so she recommended me. My experience with my design specialist, Eric Hazelton, was great because he showed and explained everything to me, he was prompt, and he was here when he said he was going to be. He was very helpful and always followed up with me. My experience with the crews was thorough, helpful, courteous, and they were here when they said they were going to be here.

    Wet Basement Waterproofed in Holmen, WI

    Steven and Linda T. of Holmen, WI had water leaking into their basement from their walls. They had American Waterworks do work on their home before, so they worked with us again. Our Foremen, Dakota and Geno, installed our Basement to Beautiful Wall Panels along the wall and re-applied concrete over the interior drainage system. Our Basement to Beautiful Panels is advanced foam insulation that helps with energy savings and gives the basement a neat, clean appearance. 

    Steven and Linda were happy with the work and their peace of mind was restored!

    High Radon Levels in Cresco, IA

    Tim W. of Cresco, IA had a radon level of 10, so he tested it again, but this time it was at 18. He became nervous and didn't enjoy living somewhere with that type of air quality. He found American Waterworks on his local television, so he called the office line and scheduled a time for our Design Specialist, Michel, to go to his home and figure out where to install our Radon Mitigation System. Michel proposed installing it in the attic. Tim was confident in the proposal and got all of his questions answered, so he went ahead with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Geno, and his crew started the installation by drilling a hole in the concrete floor in the basement, forming a suction point. From there, our team installed and connected PVC pipes until they got to the attic, where they installed the system. The purpose of our mitigation system is to pull radon from beneath the ground and lead it out of the home. If the mitigation system isn't working, then no radon can escape the home. Tim had a good experience and he was grateful we were able to help him!

    Gary O. of Austin, MN got his house tested for radon three times, and each test result came back with 5 pCi/L, which is higher than the danger level. He found American Waterworks online, so he did some research on our website and called our office line to schedule a FREE estimate. Our Design Specialist went to Gary's home, answered all of his questions, and drew up a plan for where to install our Radon Mitigation System. Gary was confident in Michel's proposal and our map lay-out, so he followed through with the project and got a date scheduled for the installation.

    Our Foreman, Geno, and his crew member, Dakota, began the process by introducing themselves to Gary and his wife and ensured all of their questions were answered. After a clear introduction, our crew got to work and drilled a hole in the basement concrete floor to form a suction point. Next, our team connected PVC piping from the suction point up through the second floor to the attic, where our team installed the Radon Mitigation System. From the system, our crew formed a hole in the ceiling of the attic, leading to the roof, where the radon was able to escape the home. Gary said he had a great experience and provided a testimonial, where you can view HERE

    Aaron G. of Mason City, IA was interested in radon mitigation, so he did his research and found American Waterworks. Our Design Specialist went to Aaron's home, inspected the layout of his house, and came up with a plan to install the mitigation system. Aaron was confident in our plan so he signed our contract and determined a date for the installation. 

    Our Foreman and his crew member started the process by drilling a hole in the concrete floor of the basement, which serves as the suction point. Next, from the floor, our crew connected PVC piping until they got to outside of the home where they installed the mitigation system and its cover. The cover serves as protection and hides the mitigation system. If the mitigation system is not working correctly, then radon is not able to make its way out of the home. From the system, our crew installed more PCV piping alongside the siding until it got to the roof. Aaron was happy with the work that was done and had a great experience!

    Robert K. of Albert Lea, MN got his home tested for radon and his levels came back at 19.5 pCi/L. The Environmental Protection Agency requests that homes with above 4 pCi/L must take action right away. So, Robert did, and he called American Waterworks to set up an appointment after finding out we provide services for Radon Mitigation. Our Design Specialist, Michel, went to Robert's home and drew up a map and plan to install our Radon Mitigation System. Robert was confident in the price and product, so he went ahead with the installation. 

    Our Foreman, Geno, and his crew member started the installation by drilling a hole in the basement concrete floor, forming a suction point. The purpose of doing this is to pull radon out from underneath the home. From there, our team connected PVC piping until they got to the house exterior, where they installed the Radon Mitigation System. The system is the heart of the system. If the system isn't working, then radon is not escaping from the home.

    Radon Mitigation Contractor in Minneapolis, MN

    Kyle W. of Minneapolis, MN had a radon level of 4.1 pCi/L. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 4 pCi/L is the "action level", which means that it needs to be mitigated as soon as possible. Kyle found American Waterworks on HomeAdvisor, so he contacted our office staff and set up a day to get one of our Exterior Radon Mitigation Systems installed. Our Design Specialist, Michel, went to Kyle's home, inspected the exterior of his house, and designed a detailed plan for where to install the system as well as the cost. Kyle was confident in the quote and the design, so he went ahead with the project. 

    Our Foremen, Dakota and Geno, installed the system from the inside utility room to the house exterior. The purpose of the mitigation system is to pull radon from underneath the home and expose it into the open air outside of the home. The installation only took a few hours and Kyle was very happy with the work that was completed.

She called our office and set up a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Michel Ramirez.

    Our Foreman, Geno Mclain, and his crew member began the installation by cleaning out the crawl space and starting from the back of the crawl space to the front. Our team installed 896 square feet of our CleanSpace Encapsulation Moisture Barrier, which is a durable, white liner that prevents water vapor and humidity from invading the crawl space. Along with the prevention of mold and rot, a dry, clean crawl space keeps away odors and prevents the heat and cold from entering during the winter and summer seasons. The project took one and a half days, and Jennifer was pleased with the work that was completed!

    Radon Mitigation System in Willmar, MN

    Randy N., a resident of Willmar, MN, got his radon levels tested and the result came out to be 6.8 pCi/L. Our Design Specialist, Kevin, set him up with an installation date and walked him through a plan of our Radon Mitigation System. These systems are made to pull radon from within the home and release it outside through pipes. 

    Our crew of Dakota and Geno began the installation by drilling a hole into the basement concrete floor, creating a suction point. From there, our crew installed a PVC pipe from the whole, which created a vent for the radon gas. They connected the pipe to the radon fan outside of the home (which is the Mitigation System itself). The fan is the heart of the system. If it fails, the radon will remain in the home. From the fan, our team connected more PVC piping along the siding of the home until it reached open air above the roof. To complete the installation, Geno and Dakota performed a final walkthrough with Randy and ensured all of his questions were answered.
