Thursday, February 10th, 2022 by Madison Rudesill


Basements tend to be an area of the home many of us tend to ignore. They can be dark, damp, and downright spooky if they’re unfinished or in an older home. Turns out, they don’t have to be. By addressing issues head on, our team can help you create a space that ultimately saves you money, improves your home energy efficiency, and put an end to undesirable water, mold, and pests in your basement, while keeping your family safe. These solutions will provide you and your family with the peace of mind you’ve been looking for.

Crawl Space Repair - Often cramped and dingy, crawl spaces can allow unwanted water (and pests) into your home.  Fortunately, wet crawl space problems can be eliminated by installing an effective waterproofing system. Our team can also help with crawl space winterization, to help you avoid frozen pipes, cold floors, and high heating costs with the proper protection.

Basement Waterproofing + Repair - Crawl spaces aren’t the only place water and mold can present themselves in the home. The basement is another common area for these uninvited visitors to appear. When it comes to basement issues, there isn’t a one size fits all option. Our professionally trained waterproofers can accurately diagnose the cause of water intrusion, musty odors, and mold growth in the basement and provide a reliable waterproofing system that will eliminate these problems and create lasting peace of mind. These solutions include perimeter drainage systems, sump pumps, replacement windows, egress windows, and more.

Radon Mitigation - Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is created by decaying uranium in the soils around your home. Radon can enter the home through various areas of your basement, from cracks in the concrete + foundation to weeping drain tile around your sump pump. American Waterworks can test for radon gas levels in your home and if they are above the recommended levels, we can customize a radon mitigation system to fix the problem. With input from you, a mitigation system can be designed and installed to effectively bring home radon gas down to a safe level.

To be honest, there isn’t much we haven’t seen in our 30 + years of business. With our expertise in improving + repairing below the home spaces, you’ll no longer have to worry about moisture, mold, and damage in your basement and crawl space. Now is the perfect time to begin planning your spring projects, before the snow melts and rain begins to fall.  Reach out to the experts at American Waterworks for a brighter (and drier) future for your home.
