A previous client of ours from Charles City, IA reached out to us after concerns that their sump pump wasn't keeping up with the demands of their basement and kept the basement feeling very damp.  

American Waterworks recommended installing our CleanSpace vapor barrier system to take control of the water and humidity and prevent any further heat loss.  We also installed a TripleSafe Sump Pump with battery backup to ensure that these homeowners never have to worry about a wet basement again.

A homeowner in Charles City, IA had moisture in his crawl space and was concerned that the air quality of his home was being compromised, so he contacted American Waterworks. After our Design Specialist thoroughly inspected the crawl space, he determined that the customer would benefit from having his crawl space encapsulated. The homeowner agreed and moved forward with the installation.

Our production team installed drainage matting, CleanSpace vapor barrier, Foamax walls and our spray foam rim joist insulation. These products work together to keep moisture, pests, and potential mold out. They also help make the space more energy-efficient. The project took less than a day, and the homeowner is confident his crawl space will remain a stable, healthier and more energy efficient space!

We (subdivision HOA) have a drainage problem requiring a larger tile line, but will not be putting one in thanks to the city.

During heavy rains water from the neighbors behind us, which is elevated, water flows into our yard. We have a large sump pump & it keeps but when the ground gets saturated we get water coming in the basement in one room. We need landscaping to force the water away from the house.
