Clay Bassingthwaite from American Waterworks

Clay has been on the American Waterworks team since June of 2020. Prior to working here, he worked at a restoration company where he was a lead and was responsible for repairing water damaged homes. His day to day responsibilities include looking at the job descriptions, loading the appropriate materials for each day, and driving to the job with the crew. He enjoys working at American Waterworks because of the company values, he enjoys working with his co-workers, and he likes meeting new people. 

In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Grace, power lifting, hunting, and playing sports. We are very grateful to have Clay on our team!

    Customer Testimonial

              As an artist, Anoke says it can be difficult to visualize works of art in a dark space. Now that she has an egress window installed, she can make her creative arts come to life. In fact, her daughter is a gardener and said our egress window is the best one she has ever seen. Shoutout to our Design Specialist, Chad, our Foreman, Clay, and his crew for providing Anoke with a trustworthy and happy experience!

    Egress Window Contractor in Anoka, MN

    Sam I. of Anoka, MN was on the hunt for Egress Windows. He found us on our website and contacted us through our online chat. Sam liked what he saw on our website, so he scheduled a FREE estimate with our Design Specialist, Russ. Russ went to Sam's house, inspected his basement window, and provided a quote going over our Egress Window. Sam was comfortable with Russ's approach and felt confident in the product, so he went ahead with the installation. 

    Our Foreman, Clay, and his crew excavated out the soil around the basement window, forming a big trench. Once the trench was formed, our crew broke out the wall to install the Egress Window. Our Egress Windows are made to add light and fresh air to the basement while providing a safe way to exit from the home. After that, our team installed our RockWell Window Well, which is a one-piece construction that allows for a safe exit out of the home in case of an emergency. To complete the project, our team backfilled the soil and ensured the yard was cleaner than when they first got there.

    Basement Waterproofing in Milroy, MN

    Eric D. of Milroy, MN had water seeping into his basement and he wanted to get it inspected by a professional. He knew of our Design Specialist, Eric Hazelton, so he told him about the problems he was having. After an informative discussion and a written-up quote, Eric D. decided to move forward with the project so he could get his problems repaired and fixed. 

    Our Foreman, Clay Bassingthwaite, and his production team started the installation by breaking out the concrete floor perimeter with a jackhammer, forming a waterway trench. In the trench, our team installed our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain, which is an underground drain that collects water seepage from basement walls. Next, our crew installed our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier, which prevents mold, mildew, and humidity, and it gives the basement a bright, clean appearance. To complete the project, our team filled the open gaps in the floor with rock and applied new concrete over it. Eric D. was grateful we were able to help him with his basement repair needs! 

    At American Waterworks, we provide services in basement waterproofing, foundation repair, crawl space repair/encapsulation, radon testing/mitigation, and concrete lifting/repair. Give us a call today or click HERE to request your no-obligation, FREE estimate!
