Photo Album: Wet Basement Transformed and Radon Mitigation in La Crescent, MN

Album Description

Chuck H. in La Crescent, MN contacted American Waterworks because he had some concerns about his home. He had been dealing with leaky windows and water seeping into his basement for years, and his radon test results had come back at dangerous levels. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Brian Ramirez, to meet with Chuck, evaluate the situation, and address his concerns. Brian assured Chuck that American Waterworks could easily resolve his home issues without the need to call multiple contractors. Chuck was thrilled with Brian’s inspection and presentation and moved forward with the project. 

Our production team got to work and stabilized the foundation with the installation of our CarbonArmor straps to halt any further movement and cracks. Next, they began the Waterproofing project by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and laying 140 feet of our WaterGuard drainage system. They installed our recommended TripleSafe sump pump in the corner and our ZenWall Insulated Basement Panels along the walls. They removed the basement windows and replaced them with 5 of our EverLast Basement Windows and SunHouse window wells, and 1 RockWell Egress Window System with a durable window well cover. The crew also installed our WellDuct System with each window to redirect any water to the perimeter WaterGuard drainage system. Water is now properly guided through the WaterGuard to the sump pump, and from there, it is discharged from the home. Lastly, Chuck had our radon mitigation system installed. Our radon mitigation system is easily installed alongside our waterproofing system, and the post-installation test results showed that the system effectively brought the radon gas down to a safe level. Chuck was impressed with the entire process, and is glad he made the investment to protect his home and restore its value.
