Austin Cunningham from American Waterworks

Austin joined the American Waterworks team in September of 2020. Prior to working here, he was a landscaper for five years, which has helped him grow and develop within his role for our team. His day-to-day responsibilities include getting the truck loaded for jobs, performing wall demos, and installing our waterproofing and foundation repair systems. His favorite part about working for American Waterworks is the guys that he works with and overcoming challenges at every job. 

In his spare time, you can find Austin hanging out with his family, fishing, and hunting. We are excited and grateful to have him on our team!

    Customer Testimonial

              We apprectiaed the team that came. They explained things clearly, worked well together and though they ran into a difficulty that extended the work load, they worked steadily throughout their time here. We appreciated their work and were very satisfied. The only concern for those having this kind of work done is to be very prepared for dust. Though they tried to contain it, it is part of the nature of jackhammering cement. Move anything moveable or tightly cover anything in the area, as it will save clean-up. The team did vacuum an clean the area. If you have basement water problems, we would definitely recommend American Waterworks!

    Crawl Space Encapsulated in Glenwood, MN

    Adam P. of Glenwood, MN had a damp, musty crawl space and he wanted to get it encapsulated before it got any worse. He heard about American Waterworks through HomeAdvisor, so he got in contact with our office line and scheduled a FREE estimate. Our Design Specialist, Ryan, went to Adam's house, inspected his crawl space, and determined a solution that would work for him and his needs. Adam was confident in our CleanSpace Encapsulation Vapor Barrier, so he followed through with the project and got a date scheduled for the installation. 

    Our Foreman, Austin, installed 1,448 square feet of our Drainage Matting and CleanSpace Encapsulation Vapor Barrier to waterproof and seal the crawl space. Our CleanSpace is designed to prevent mold, mildew, wood rot, pests, etc. It provides the space with additional storage space and saves money on energy costs. Adam was happy with the repairs that were made and his peace of mind was restored!

    Basement Waterproofing and Foundation Repair in Fargo, ND

    Khna C. of Fargo, ND had water seeping into their basement through the cracks of their foundation wall, causing them to worry about the safety and structural build of their home. They got in contact with American Waterworks and scheduled a FREE estimate with our Design Specialist, Richie. Richie went to Khna's home, carefully inspected the basement, diagnosed the symptoms, and drew out a detailed proposal of our foundation waterproofing systems. Khna was confident in Richie's proposal, so they signed the contract and got a date scheduled for installation.

    Our Foremen, Ryan, Cameron, and Austin, and their production teams began the process by breaking out the concrete floor perimeter, forming a trench. Next, in the trench, our team installed our WaterGuard Below-Floor Drain, which is designed to prevent water clogs, serve as an underground drain, and collect water seepage from basement walls. Next, our team installed our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier around the entire wall perimeter. This vapor barrier is made to prevent mold, humidity, and water moisture while also giving the basement a nice, clean appearance. Then, our crew installed our SuperSump Plus M53 Sump Pump in the corner of the basement, which is designed to keep basements dry for long periods of time, by discharging the water out of the basement. Lastly, our Foreman and their teams installed our PowerBraces around the wall perimeter. This foundation repair product is made to straighten and stabilize foundation walls. Over time, they can be tightened by the homeowner to ensure the system is sticking to its design. To complete the installation, our team filled the open-floor gaps with river rock, and applied new concrete over them, ensuring the basement was cleaner than when they found it.

    Leaking Basement Fixed in Thief River Falls, MN

    Everet L. of Thief River Falls, MN had water leaking into her basement, making her worry about damage to property and water moisture problems. She got in contact with our office staff at American Waterworks and scheduled a free inspection with our Design Specialist, Ian Schultz. Ian went to her home, carefully inspected her basement water leaks, and drew up a plan that would fit her home repair needs and budget. She was confident in Ian's write-up of our WaterGuard Drainage System and our SuperSump Plus M53 and got all of her questions answered, so she went ahead with the installation and got a date scheduled to complete the project. 

    Our installers, Austin Cunningham and Charlie Coleman, started the project by introducing themselves to Everet and ensuring all of her questions were answered. After a thorough introduction, Austin and Charlie began the installation by breaking out the concrete floor perimeter with a jackhammer, forming a trench. In the trench, our team installed our WaterGuard Drainage System, which as an underground drain alternative, collects water leaking from basement walls, and protects the home from water or mud clogs. Next, our team installed our SuperSump Plus M53 in the corner of the basement, which works collaboratively with our WaterGuard and keeps the basement clean and dry, especially during harsh weather conditions. To complete the project, Austin and Charlie filled the open gaps with river rock and applied new concrete over them, ensuring the basement was cleaner than when they found it.
