    Customer Testimonial

              I can't say enough about how great the crew was to work with. Dylon, Jonathan, Corey, and Carlos were all so pleasant and professional. Any questions that we had wrere quickly answered, they all kept us informed about what they were doing and what was going to happen next. I appreciated the respect that the guys showed me, my husband, our home, and even our dog! But the best news is... The basement is already noticeably drier and doesn't smell must anymore! Thank you, American Waterworks!

    Mary C. of Crookston, MN

    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.

    Lisa and Gary B. were getting water in their basement every spring. They got sick and tired of the maintenance, so they contacted our team to schedule a FREE estimate. Our Design Specialist, Ian, went to their home, inspected their entire basement, and drew out a solution. Lisa and Gary were confident in Ian's plan, so they signed his contract, wrote out a deposit check, and set up a date for the installation. 

    Our Foreman, Corey, and his production crew began the project by installing 144 feet of our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier.

Next, our team installed our DryTrak Baseboard Basement Drain Pipe. Our DryTrak is specifically made for floors that are poured as just one piece; the floor itself and the footing. For this system, no jackhammering is needed, it stays above the mud zone, and it collects water seepage from basement walls. Lisa and Gary were happy with the work that was done and could not believe the beautifying transformation!
