    Customer Testimonial

              We used American Waterworks to stabilize/lift our house due to settling/sinking footings. We had four estimates done with different companies before deciding on American Waterworks. From start to finish, we were impressed with the company. Richie was thorough and concise when informing us of what would need to be done, and explained the estimate to us in person. When the crew arrived, they were courteous and conscientious, and very hardworking. The Foreman, Ryan, kept us informed throughout every step of the project! We had 23 piers driven in and around our house to lift/stabilize. During the lift, they explained what to expect and took their time to be sure we were satisfied with the outcome. When it came to the last day of the project, they had all hands on deck and left our property looking way better than we had ever experienced after this huge project! Sam, the branch manager, made sure we were satisfied and happy customers before wrapping up the project! Thanks to American Waterworks for a job well done!

    Customer Testimonial

              From the very beginning, I was contacted right away after reaching out regarding a repair project involving a wall of the apartment building which was bowing inward, resulting in structural instability and water intrusion into the apartment. Richie Noreen promptly came to the location in Crookston, MN and evaluated the situation, clearly explaining everything to me in an easy to understand manner. He gave me a thorough tour of the process, so I felt very confident in his expert professional assessment. He laid everything out from A to Z. Then, when it was time for the repairs to occur, the team really showed their expertise. Sam, Cory and the guys really impressed me. They got right to work and utilized the time masterfully. Instead of fretting about what might go wrong for the duration of the work, I had peace of mind that they had everything under control. It is such a relief to me that I found the right company! Once they waterproofed, straightened the bowing wall and anchored it, they poured a new concrete sidewalk, which grades away from the building, and cleaned up everything so well that it's hard to believe they had just dug everything up! I wasn't left with anything to clean up! Needless to say, I'm a very happy customer and I highly recommend American Waterworks if you are looking for a job done right and peace of mind.

    Customer Testimonial

              It's a daunting feeling to find out your home was basically built wrong from the basement on up. You have no idea where to turn when multiple issues erupt if you've never dealt with that type of thing. American Waterworks set themselves apart from the get-go. Two companies never contacted me at all after leaving my information online for an evaluation. American Waterworks contacted me almost immediately. My sales rep, Richie, was amazing; with a degree in construction management. He pointed out things immediately that weren't right, explained everything at a level I easily understood, as well as recognized what was causing major issues in my garage and basement, which others couldn't explain and come never noticed at all. There was no slick dialogue, no pressure to sign a contract before he left. Unlike others, I felt I Could trust him. He was genuine. Instead, he took what he found to the team and they worked out the best plan for my particular home, for the most cost-effective plan, as there were multiple issues and he made another appointment with me. It was very evident that he knew his stuff. Same with the work crew. They were polite, always masked due to the pandemic, always respectful and cordial. Their capability was obvious and they explained everything they were doing, used drop cloths and plastic to reduce the mess. The regional manager also came and got dirty with the rest of them, let his crew leave after a 13-hour day to let them go home and he kept working. He was intent on answering all of my questions, explaining all tasks at hand. When the job took an extra day due to temperature and weather conditions, the bill didn't change from the estimate given; that doesn't always happen. The regional manager himself, Sam, came back with another fellow to finish up and clean up. They were very thorough and cleaned up everything inside and out, did a final walk-through to answer any questions, and gave instructions on what to expect for each area that they worked on as far as concrete curing and soil setting. American Waterworks took the fear out of what felt like a hopeless situation and fixed the issues that caused a cracked floor joist, a garage being pushed out of place by "street creep", and a buckling driveway. I know so much more about my home now and I feel the education they gave me will help me spot future problems more readily. I will never go anywhere else for basement or foundation issues. Never. They weren't just good workers, they were good people, and that matters to me.

    Lisa C. of Brainerd, MN had water leaking into her basement, and she wanted to get it inspected by a professional.

    Cindy H. of Glyndon, MN had water leaking from his ceiling down the walls, and she wasn't sure what was causing it to leak. She found American Waterworks and scheduled a FREE estimate with our Design Specialist, Richie. Richie went to Cindy's home, inspected her concrete, and drew up a well-detailed solution that would fit her needs. Cindy was confident in the proposal, so she scheduled a date for the installation.

    Our Foreman, Ryan, and his crew began the project by breaking out the corner of the basement, forming a hole. In the hole, our crew installed our SuperSump Plus M53, which is a sump pump designed to discharge water out of the basement by keeping it away from the foundation. Next, our crew installed our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier, which is a barrier that prevents water from seeping through the basement walls and saves money on energy costs. To complete the project, our crew filled the open-floor gaps with river rock and applied new concrete over them, ensuring the space was neater than when they found it.
