Serving Southern MN, Northeast IA & Western WI, Saint Paul, Minneapolis, Rochester
A movie theater in Decorah, IA noticed that they had a crack in their foundation. They got in touch with a local engineer, and the engineer recommended that they contact American Waterworks. Brad R. contacted us to receive a FREE estimate, so we sent out our Commercial Sales Specialist, Tom Webbles, to inspect their foundation and design a solution.
Tom recommended that we install piers to lift the foundation and transfer its weight to the pier instead of the soil. Brad liked the proposal that Tom put together, so he decided to move forward with the installation.
Our production crew started the installation process by removing the concrete and soil where they needed to install the piers. They drilled seven helical piers deep into the soil underneath the foundation of the movie theater. Once the piers reached stable soil, the foundation was raised and there was no longer a crack. They also sealed the cracks with concrete to ensure that water could not seep through. Our foundation repair solutions are guaranteed for a lifetime, so Brad is confident that he chose the right solution to protect the movie theater for the long-term.
