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!

Randy and Janet S. of Charles City, IA had a musty and dirty crawl space, and they wanted to get it transformed into a bright and clean space. They went online and came across our website. After scrolling through some of our crawl space waterproofing products, they were confident in our services, so they called our office line and set up a FREE estimate. Our Design Specialist went to their home, looked through their crawl space, and proposed our CleanSpace Encapsulation Vapor Barrier for the repairs. Randy and Janet got all of their questions answered about the product so they followed through with the installation. 

Our Foreman and his crew installed 1,098 square feet of our CleanSpace Encapsulation Vapor Barrier, which is a heavy-duty barrier that transforms the crawl space into a dry, clean, and energy-efficient part of the home. It also stops moisture from passing through the floors and concrete walls while preventing humidity and mold build-up. The installation took a couple of days and Randy and Janet could not believe the transformation!

I have a 100+ year old stucco house. Stucco is in good shape, but due to someone removing the gutters years ago, there are a couple of places where small issues have developed with the foundation blocks and they are in need of repair. I'd also like guidance regarding the front porch steps and their separation from the concrete slab. Lastly, recommendations for radon mitigation in the basement. Thanks.

During a heavy rain storm, I noticed a hole in our basement that is letting water flow in. I was wondering if this could be checked in case there is something wrong with the foundation and if not, having that area closed up would be nice.
