    Customer Testimonial

              We recently went with American Waterworks to fix our foundation. There was a bulge on one of the walls that made us very nervous that something bad was going to happen one day. We had a representative from American Waterworks come and look at the issue. He suggested that their geo-lock anchor system was the best route to take. We did have a few other companies come and look as well but we went with American Waterworks. And boy are we glad we did! The team was promptly on time and started to get to work right away. Throughout the time they were here they gave us updates about what they were doing, being very descriptive of the actions they were taking. The team was very professional and very awesome! Once they were finished they made sure to move back any objects they had to move and even cleaned up. They did such a great job! I highly recommend American Waterworks above any other company! We will continue to use them with any issues we have in the future. Once again, the whole team was very awesome!

    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.

    Basement Waterproofing in Bluffton, MN

    Michael H. of Bluffton, MN had water coming in through the sidewall of his basement during rainstorms, and he wanted to get it looked at by a professional. He researched contractors on HomeAdvisor and came across American Waterworks so he requested a FREE estimate with our Design Specialist, Roger. Roger went to Michael's home, carefully inspected his problem, and drew out a solution. Roger proposed our WaterGuard BelowFloor Drain, which prevents water clogs, serves as an underground drain and collects water from basement walls. Michael felt confident in the proposal, so he signed the contract and went ahead with the project. 

    Our Foreman, Cameron, and his crew broke out the concrete floor perimeter and in front of the steps, forming a trench. In the trench, our team installed our WaterGuard, filled the open gaps with river rock, and applied new concrete over them, ensuring the basement was neater than when they found it.

    A female homeowner in Davenport, ND had a damp and musty room in her newly constructed basement, and she wanted to get it waterproofed as soon as possible. She heard about American Waterworks, so she got a FREE Estimate scheduled with our Design Specialist, Richie Noreen. Richie went to the homeowner's house, inspected their basement, and proposed our replacement of concrete and our SuperSump Sump Pump System. The homeowner was confident in Richie's proposal, so she signed the contract and determined a date for the installation.

    Our Foreman, Cameron Phrakonekham, and his production team started the installation by installing our SuperSump Sump Pump System, followed by the discharge line. Our discharge line is designed to remove water from the sump pump. Since discharge lines should not be run into sewer systems, the only other option is to run them out into your yard. Cameron applied 136 square feet of concrete over the floor, which gives the basement a clean, finishing touch. To complete the installation, our team gave a thorough walkthrough with the homeowner and ensured all of her questions were answered. She was happy with the work that was completed, and had a great experience from start to finish!
