    Very helpful. Ian, the Design Specialist, spent solid time assessing our situation and going over the findings from his assessment. Unfortunately, the work we need to be done is not something that American Waterworks can help with. However, they were willing to see if they knew anyone that might be able to help. They send out great information prior to the assessment about the company and what they do. Ian was knowledgeable, respectful, and professional. I wish we could have had a reason to work with them, but our current needs are different than their options.

    Customer Testimonial

              The team that came out to handle my basement work was professional and friendly. They answered all of my questions in a thoughtful manner. I have had work done by another major basement system company and I found American Waterworks to be more competitive in their pricing models and easier to work with. I could not hesitate to have them do more work in my home.

    Basement Waterproofing in Battle Lake, MN

    A homeowner in Battle Lake, MN had water leaking from their walls, causing them to worry about water damage and flooding hazards. When it comes to block foundation walls, the open spaces in each block may fill with water, which then leaks through the walls. By eliminating that, our crew broke out the bottom of the wall perimeter by a few inches, then drilled a weep hole into each block. Next, our team installed our DryTrak Drain Pipe System, which our crew did not have to use a jackhammer for. In this case, our team just applied it over the floor perimeter., which prevented extra labor and exposure to dust. The water then was able to pour through the holes and directly into the drain pipe. 

    The homeowner was happy with the repairs and was grateful we were able to help them with their basement waterproofing needs!

Larry was confident in Ian's proposal of our GeoLock C-Channel Anchors, so he went ahead with the project.

    Basement Waterproofing in Moorhead, MN

    Julie P. of Moorhead, MN had a small water leak underneath her basement stairs. It would only occur during heavy rainstorms. She worked with American Waterworks for the repairs, and her Design Specialist was Ian Schultz. Ian examined the water leak and determined the solution of our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain and CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier. Julie was confident in the proposal, so she went ahead with the project and got a date scheduled for the installation. 

    Our Foreman, Ryan Loe, and his production team broke out the concrete where the water leak was and installed our WaterGuard, which collects water from basement walls and serves as an underground drain to the sump pump. Next, our team installed our CleanSpace which prevents mold and humidity and serves as a protective blanket. To complete the work, our crew filled the open-floor gap with river rock and applied a new layer of concrete over it, ensuring the space was neater and cleaner than when they found it.

    Inward Bowing Walls Repaired in Fargo, ND

    Joe and Janessa D. of Fargo, ND had bowing walls in their basement, making them worry about the structural build and stability of their house. They knew of our Design Specialist, Ian Schultz, so they talked to him about coming out to their home for a FREE estimate. Ian went to their house, carefully inspected their walls, and drew up the solution of our GeoLock Wall Anchor System. Joe and Janessa felt confident in the videos, pictures, and graphics of the product that Ian showed them, so they went ahead and signed Ian's contract and wrote out a deposit check. 

    Our Foreman, Corey Tollefson, and his production team started the installation by digging holes outside of the home beyond the foundation. Next, our team inserted a long, metal rod from the interior foundation to each hole outside of the home. At the end of each rod in the soil, our team installed an anchor plate, which provides the pressure against the inside of the foundation wall. Next, from the interior foundation, our team installed a GeoLock Wall Anchor to the end of each rod to stabilize the foundation wall and pull it back into its normal position. Over time, the homeowner can tighten the anchors to ensure that the system is working properly. To finish the installation, Corey and his crew backfilled each hole outside of the home, compacted the soil, and ensured the yard looked neat and cleaned up.
