A homeowner from Mendota, MN contacted us because she was concerned about potentially having high radon levels. We scheduled an onsite inspection with one of our Design Specialists, Dustin Loftus, who tested her home and designed the plan for a mitigation system if one was needed.
Her results came back at 6.8 pCi/L and the recommended action level is 4 pCi/l. She decided to move forward with the mitigation system to protect her and her loved one's health. Our Foreman, Dakota installed the system a couple of weeks later, and her post-install test results came back at 0.5 pCi/l. She was so relieved to be breathing healthy air again and was grateful we could help her so quickly!

Ray W. in South Saint Paul, MN was suffering from a severely bowing foundation wall. He knew he shouldn’t wait to repair his foundation because he knows how expensive it is to replace the foundation altogether if it were to fail. While searching for a company that could help restore his foundation, he came across the American Waterworks’ website. He decided to reach out to us for a free estimate, so we sent one of our Design Specialists, Chad Johnson, to his home to inspect his wall and provide him with a solution. Chad recommended that we install 7 wall anchors along the bowing wall in order to permanently stabilize it. Chad answered Ray’s questions and addressed Ray’s concerns. After reviewing his options with Chad, Ray decided to move forward with the installation of the wall anchors.
Our production team installed the wall anchors by drilling long metal rods through the brick wall into the soil outside of the home. The rods are then secured with wall plates on either end. Once the anchors are tightened, the wall becomes secured and starts to straighten. Ray also purchased hide-away anchor covers to conceal the anchors and make his basement more visually appealing. The installation process took a couple of days, but our foundation repair systems are guaranteed for a lifetime, so Ray has peace of mind that his foundation is permanently protected.

Jessica from Mendota, MN, got in contact with us when she suspected that her home was infested with hazardous Radon gas. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that can be extremely harmful to both humans and pets if inhaled at high levels for an extended period of time. In fact, Radon gas exposure has quickly become the second leading cause of lung cancer. Radon can be measured in picocuries per liter, or pCi/L. The National Radon Defense suggests taking action with any levels above 4 pCi/L. Jessica used her FREE estimate and we sent our Design Specialist, Dustin, out to the property to complete a Radon test to find out the levels in the home. When the results came back, Dustin found the levels to be at 6.8 pCi/L, well above when the NRD would recommend action. He suggested Jessica have a Radon mitigation system installed, which would help lift the gas from the home and expel it up and outwards through a vent in the top of the house. Our Foreman, Juan, installed the system with little hassle. Now, Jessica and her family can breathe a bit easier knowing that their home is no longer infested with dangerous levels of Radon.
A concerned customer from Rosemount, MN, got in contact with us when her cracked and settling concrete slab in her garage began to worsen. She knew that if she left the problem unresolved it could create a potentially dangerous tripping hazard or could worsen and be more expensive to fix later down the road. When she called in, we set her up with our FREE estimate, and one of our Design Specialists from our Concrete and Radon Division headed out to the property in the coming weeks. Once he arrived, he did a thorough investigation into the problem. Once he finished his walk-through he was able to make his recommendations as to how we could best help fix the issue. He recommended that our customer invests in our Lift and Level option for her concrete slab. This process entails us drilling strategic holes into the slab and then injecting our PolyLevel foam into the holes. This foam is an expanding polyurethane foam that is injected beneath concrete slabs to fill gaps caused by soil erosion and raise and stabilize the concrete surfaces. Our Foreman, Sam, was able to complete the project with little hassle. When the job was completed, our customer was happy to know that her concrete slab wasn't moving any time soon!

Our customer, David, from Inver Grove Heights, MN, reached out to us when he noticed that his concrete walkway to his garage was uneven and may cause potential trip hazards. David was worried that this problem may worsen over time and cause a major problem down the road. When David contacted our office at American Waterworks, we were able to set David up with the FREE estimate that we offer. A Design Specialist forms our Concrete and Radon division was then able to visit David and do a thorough inspection of the issue and see how we can prevent any further damage to the concrete. Once a thorough inspection was complete our Design Specialist recommended that David should invest in our lifting and leveling option. David agreed and our Foreman, Brandon, and his crew arrived at the scene and proceeded with the installation. The crew began by drilling holes in strategically placed areas through the concrete slab and filled it with our PolyLevel solution, which is an expanding polyurethane foam that fills the gap between the concrete and the soil due to soil erosion. This poly foam then raises and stabilizes the concrete slab. During the process, the crew keeps a close eye as the foam expands to the appropriate height. After the PolyLevel stage, Brandon and his team, then finish by sealing any holes or joints that remain with our NexusPro solution. The NexusPro solution is a silicone-based sealant that is long-lasting and durable. This is so that the joints do not separate or tear in harsh weather where concrete may expand or shrink with temperature. David was happy with the work that has been done and worry-free that the issue will not occur again.

Tim from Lakeville, MN, noticed a crack and bow on the foundation wall supporting his garage, causing him to worry about the structural integrity of his home. He then proceeded to call the Appointment Center here at American Waterworks after hearing about the FREE estimate we offer. Once claiming his free estimate and scheduled an appointment, our Design Specialist, Shane Nephew then attended Tim's home and began a thorough house inspection to provide the best solution to prevent any further damage or future issues involving the home's foundation. After the inspection, Shane proposed that Tim should invest in our GeoLock Wall Anchors to permanently stabilize the issue wall. Tim was content with the proposal and proceeded to set a date of installation.
Then, on the day of installation, our Foreman Jesus C., and his team then began the installation process by digging four holes inside the garage large enough to fit an anchor plate. Once dug, the team then proceeds to drill holes through the issue wall and insert a long rod that goes through the hard compact soil underneath the home. Once the rods are inserted the production team then proceeds to attach a wall anchor plate at the end of each side of the rod. Once the job was finished the team backfilled the holes and place a layer of concrete to provide a more finishing look. The GeoLock Wall anchors could be tightened over time to provide more stability in straightening the wall over time. Tim is now comfortable that his home's foundation is in no danger.
