A homeowner in Cottage Grove, MN contacted us after noticing his concrete patio and stoop had settled over 3 inches, making it a major trip hazard for anyone trying to enter and exit his home. He didn't want any of his visitors getting hurt, so he decided to call American Waterworks to fix the problem!

We used PolyLevel injection to raise the structure back to its correct position. Overtime, the soil beneath concrete cannot hold the weight of the concrete on top. It sinks leaving an uneven area of concrete. Our PolyLevel injection is installed through a  dime-sized hole beneath the concrete. The material expands to fill the sunken space where the soil once was.

Eric S. in Cottage Grove, MN was experiencing water seeping through a wall in his basement during heavy rains. It had started to cause damage to his property, so he knew it was time to have a professional look at it. While researching waterproofing contractors, he found American Waterworks. He gave us a call and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Chad Johnson, to his home to give him a FREE estimate and to provide a solution. Eric was pleased with the waterproofing plan that Chad developed, so a date for the installation was set. 

Our crew installed our WaterGuard drainage system along the perimeter of the wall that had water seeping in. The WaterGuard drains water to the newly installed SuperSump sump pump, and it is then expelled from the home through the discharge line. Eric now has peace of mind that water in his basement is no longer a concern. He is glad he chose a long-term solution for his home.

Justin V. of Cottage Grove, MN had water leaking into his basement, causing him to feel nervous about water moisture, humidity, and mold build-up. He got in contact with American Waterworks and scheduled a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Tim Schneider. Tim went to his home, examined where the water was leaking from, and came up with a solution that worked for him, his home repair needs, and his budget. Justin got all of his questions answered and felt confident in the proposal, so he signed the contract, put down a deposit, and scheduled a date for the installation. 

Our Foreman, Raul Barroso, and his production team began the project by breaking out the concrete floor perimeter, forming a trench. In the trench, our team installed our WaterGuard Drainage System, which is made to prevent water and mud clogs, serve as an underground drain that connects to the sump pump, and collects water seepage from the basement walls. Next, our team installed our CleanSpace Wall System Vapor Barrier, which is made to guide water into the WaterGuard, prevent any mold or mildew build-up, and act as a wall protectant barrier. To complete the work that was done, Raul and his team filled in the open gaps with rock and applied new concrete over it. Justin was happy with the work and had a great experience from the appointment to installation!

Job Stories From Cottage Grove, MN
Cottage Grove Sidewalk Saved

A homeowner in Cottage Grove, MN, was enjoying their front porch when the overlaps in their sidewalk caught their eye. Wanting to avoid further damage, the homeowner began searching for an expert to inspect their sidewalk. During their search, the homeowner came across our Facebook page and noticed our impressive previous jobs. The homeowner then went to our website and saw we offer concrete lifting and leveling services. Wanting to avoid replacing the concrete, the homeowner decided to sign up for their FREE estimate. After the details were finalized, the homeowner prepared for the arrival of one of our Design Specialists. Once they arrived, the Design Specialist began their detailed inspection of the sidewalk and stairs. The Design Specialist determined that the concrete was sinking, causing the overlap. To stop the sinking, the Design Specialist recommended that the concrete be lifted and leveled and cracks be repaired. Wanting to solve the issue, the homeowners agreed and a crew was assigned to the job. Our Foreman, Sam, and his crew arrived at the home and began by installing the PolyLevel underneath the sinking concrete. The PolyLevel is a polyurethane foam injection solution that restores the appearance and safety of the concrete. The crew started by strategically drilling small holes throughout the slab. Then, the crew inserts ports into those small holes. Next, the polyurethane foam is injected beneath the concrete to fill voids and raise the slabs. Finally, the holes and control joints are sealed. Once the PolyLevel injection was finished, the crew shifted their focus to filling the cracks and replacing the joints. The crew utilized NexusPro Sealant, a silicone-based sealant for joints and cracks formulated to provide long-lasting flexibility and withstand harsh weather conditions. The crew begins by drilling, smoothing, and preparing the non-absorbent backer rod filler. Then, the NexusPro sealant is inserted in the prepared crack or control joint. Finally, the cracks are detailed with a thin layer of native sand, giving the concrete a uniform, finished appearance. Once the cracks were sealed, the crew cleaned up their site and left the home. The homeowners were relieved to know their sidewalk was no longer sinking. If you are experiencing a similar issue, sign up for your FREE estimate today! 

Sunken Back Patio in Cottage Grove, MN

Zach W. was frustrated that his back patio had sunk a few inches after the change of season. He was hoping he could find an affordable solution to raise his concrete instead of replacing it altogether. While researching concrete repair contractors, he found American Waterworks and was interested in learning more about our PolyLevel concrete repair solution. He gave us a call and set up a time for one our Design Specialists to come to his home and give him a FREE estimate. 

Our Design Specialist assured him that we could raise and level his concrete back to where it was in a cost-effective and non-invasive manner. Zach was pleased to hear this, so he set an appointment for the PolyLevel injection. Our PolyLevel experts drilled penny-sized holes into the concrete slab to inject the foam. The foam only takes 30 minutes to cure once it has been injected, so Zach was able to see the transformation almost immediately. The entire process took about 2 hours to complete. Zach is pleased that he found a more affordable and durable concrete repair option through American Waterworks.
