Tim Schneider from American Waterworks

Tim has been on the American Waterworks team since February of 2020. He joined our team because he appreciated our reputation and high standard of customer care from phone call to project completion. He has been in the home repair business his entire career. He spent the last 17 years as an active real estate agent, which gave him a unique perspective on how a structurally sound and dry foundation can affect a homeowner’s health, safety, and peace of mind mentality. He’s passionate about solving problems for homeowners and taking the burden of worry off their shoulders with a well-designed solution to restore their confidence in a sound and comfortable home. Tim specializes in our waterproofing and foundation repair division but is certified to perform inspections for all of our services. In Tim’s spare time, you can find him spending time with his family, hunting, fishing, and traveling internationally.

At American Waterworks, our mission is to improve the lives of our customers, team, and community through education and delivering a complete solution. We have over 30 years of experience solving problems for thousands of homeowners throughout Minnesota, North Dakota, western Wisconsin, and northeast Iowa. We are a dealer for the top home repair suppliers in the country including Basement Systems, Supportworks, and National Radon Defense. We are the most recognized dealer in our region, and we are committed to staying at the forefront of our industry with the support of these organizations. Our priority is to provide homeowners with lasting solutions for a wide array of problems. We firmly believe that working with a contractor shouldn’t be a painful experience and we strive to change that perception by providing top-notch customer service and ensuring that all employees are knowledgeable and thoroughly trained in order to best serve our customers.

    Basement Waterproofing in Taylor, WI

    Julie and Brian B. of Taylor, WI had water leaking into their basement, making them worry about water damage, flooding hazards, and other problems. They knew of an employee at American Waterworks, so they set up a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Tim Schneider. Tim went to their home, carefully inspected their basement, and came up with a solution that worked for them and their home repair needs. They were confident in Tim's drawn out design and his proposal, so they signed the contract and followed through with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Kiko Pena, and his production team began the installation by breaking out the concrete perimeter with a jackhammer, forming a waterway trench. In the trench, our team installed 146 feet of our WaterGuard System, which is made to collect water seepage from basement walls, prevent water clogs, and serve as an underground drain in connection to the sump pump. Next, our team installed our CleanSpace Wall Vapor Barrier around the basement wall perimeter. Our CleanSpace System is made to prevent mold and humidity, keep water from invading the basement, and direct leaking water into the WaterGuard. To complete the installation, Kiko and his crew covered all the open gaps with river rock and applied new concrete over it, leaving the basement looking much neater than when they found it. Julie and Brian were grateful we were able to help them and were amazed by the transformation!

    Jamie B. of Dakota, MN had water seeping into their basement, and they wanted to install a system that would solve their water problems. They got in contact with our office line and scheduled a FREE estimate with one of our Design Specialists. Our Design Specialist went to their home, looked through their basement, and examined all the water leaks. After a thorough inspection, our Design Specialist proposed our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier and our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain. Jamie was impressed with the products and their warranties, so they moved forward with the project and got a date scheduled for the installation. 

    Our Foreman and his production team began the installation by jackhammering out the concrete of the basement floor perimeter, forming a waterway trench. Our team installed our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain in the trench, which is made to collect water leakage from basement walls, prevent water and mud clogs, and it has easily accessible service ports for annual maintenances. Next, our team installed our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier, which is made to prevent mold and humidity, act as an extra wall protectant, and give the basement a neat and bright finish. To finish the project, our team filled the open-floor gaps with rock and pea gravel and applied a new layer of concrete over them to ensure the space was neat and tidy. Jamie was satisfied with the work that was done and was beautified by the transformation!

    Robert H. of Menomonie, WI had cracked a cracked foundation wall in his basement, making him worry about the structural build of his home. Our office staff got in contact with him and set him up with a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Tim Schneider. Tim went to his home, examined the wall, and drew out a design and plan of our GeoLock Wall Anchors. Robert was confident in the proposal and got all of his questions answered, so he went ahead with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Juan Pena, and his production team began the project by digging small holes outside of the home beyond the foundation. Our team inserted a long, metal rod from the inside foundation wall to each hole outside of the home. At the ends of each rod, our crew screwed on and tightened a GeoLock Wall Anchor. Our wall anchor system is made to stabilize foundation walls by anchoring the walls to the hard-packed soil beyond the foundation and pulling them back to their original position. To complete the project, our crew backfilled the holes and replaced the soil. Juan and his crew made sure Robert was happy with the repairs and answered all of his questions!

    Matt T. of Shakopee, MN had water leaking through the corner of his unfinished basement wall during heavy rainstorms and he wanted to get it looked at it before it got any worse. He knew of an employee at American Waterworks, so he scheduled a free estimate with our Design Specialist, Tim Schneider.
