Kevin S. in Mason City, IA contacted American Waterworks because he was tired of dealing with standing water in his basement after heavy rains and snow melt. Being a previous customer, he knew the crew at American Waterworks would take care of him and provide the best solution. He met with our Design Specialist, Dylan Woitas, who evaluated the situation and worked side-by-side with Kevin to create a unique plan for his home. 

Our Foreman, Arturo Mares, and his production crew were successfully able to waterproof Kevin’s basement by first, removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and laying our WaterGuard drainage system. Next, they installed our recommended TripleSafe sump pump. Now, water is properly guided through the WaterGuard to the sump pump, which is then expelled from the home through the discharge line. Lastly, they completed the project with installing our Fomax Wall Insulation Panels. Foamax provides comfort and energy bill savings, while making the walls look clean and bright. Kevin's peace of mind has been restored, knowing his basement will remain dry!

Uneven Concrete Walkway Solved with PolyLevel in Dougherty, IA

Darrel W. in Dougherty, WI was tired of dealing with uneven concrete slabs on his front walkway. While he was at a local home show, he visited the American Waterworks booth because he saw that we are capable of raising and leveling concrete.

He spoke to our Design Specialist, Don Mancilman, about his situation. Don went to Darrel's home a few days later to inspect his walkway and provide him with a FREE estimate. Darrel was pleased to learn that PolyLevel is a quick, durable and more efficient option to traditional concrete repair. Darrel liked the proposal that Don developed so he set a date for the installation. 

Our PolyLevel expert drilled penny-sized holes into the concrete slabs for the foam to be injected. Then he injected the foam until the concrete was completely level. Lastly, he sealed the cracks in the concrete with our Nexus Pro sealant. The entire process took about 2 hours and Darrel was pleased with how non-invasive the installation was. Darrel can now enjoy a level side walk for years to come!

Daniel from Mason City, IA, got in contact with us when he began to notice that his driveway and sidewalk concrete was beginning to sink, creating sizable gaps.

When Daniel called us, we set him up with our FREE estimate. Shortly after, our Design Specialist, Jarrett, was out at the property to thoroughly inspect the issue. When he concluded, he informed Daniel that the soil beneath the slabs of concrete was settling, sinking the concrete with it.

He suggested that Daniel invest in our PolyLevel solution, a polyurethane foam that is injected beneath the concrete to fill the gaps caused by soil erosion and raise and stabilize the concrete surface. He wanted to follow up with our NexusPro solution, which is a silicone-based sealant used to seal cracks and joints. Daniel agreed and the renovations began shortly after. 

Our Foreman, Dylon, and his crew began the project by strategically drilling holes into the concrete slabs. Next, they injected our PolyLevel solution into the holes and closely monitored it as the foam expanded, lifting the concrete with it. They finished the project by sealing all the holes and miscellaneous cracks with our NexusPro solution to keep the elements off the concrete, ensuring the fix would last as long as possible.
