Brian O. in La Crescent, MN contacted American Waterworks after being referred to us by a previous satisfied customer. He was interested in our foundation repair and waterproofing products, so we sent one of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, to meet with him and present our services. Brian was impressed with Rick’s evaluation and proposal, and he moved forward with the project.
Our Foreman, Cole Brinkman, and his production crew were able to successfully stabilize Brian’s basement walls by installing 32 of our CarbonArmor strips along the perimeter of the foundation. The CarbonArmour system utilizes epoxy and carbon fiber strips to strengthen the foundation walls. Next, the crew began the waterproofing project by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and through the middle of the floor to install the 140 feet of our WaterGuard drainage system and feed line. Then, the crew filled back the gaps with rock, replaced the concrete, and cleaned up their work area. Brian is happy with the results and confident that he chose the best solution for his home!
Larry M. in La Crescent, MN had a bowing foundation wall in his basement. He was concerned that his wall was no longer stable and that it was putting pressure on the foundation of the home. He knew how expensive it can be to replace and entire foundation, so he decided he needed to have a professional take a look and see what his options were. One of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, went onsite to give him a free estimate. Rick recommended installing 5 Geo-Lock wall anchors on Larry's bowing foundation wall.
Larry was pleased to discover that our wall anchors are backed by a lifetime warranty, which made him comfortable having them installed. Larry could already see the difference in stability of that wall once the anchors were tightened. Larry now has peace of mind knowing his wall has been permanently been secured and stabilized.

Cal and Marcy A. of Holmen, WI had a bowed and cracked foundation wall in their basement, causing them to worry about the structural integrity of their home. They got our wall anchors installed, which are the most versatile wall repair system that we provide for homeowners because they can be installed to stabilize walls with a variety of problems, such as bowing, tipping, and cracking walls.
When installed, anchors are embedded in the soil outside of the foundation wall and are connected by a long, steel rod to a wall plate. This provides the necessary pressure against the inside of the foundation wall, which enables it to straighten back into its natural position. The anchors are then tightened with a torque wrench and can be tightened by the homeowner over time to ensure the system is sticking to its design.
