A homeowner in Detroit Lakes, MN had water leaking into their basement, making them feel uncomfortable living in their own home. They called American Waterworks and requested a FREE Estimate. Our Design Specialist, Chad Johnson, went to their home to inspect the basement and come up with a solution to their problem. The homeowner was confident with Chad's plan, so they went ahead with the project. 

Our Foreman, Brian Colliton, and his production team began the project by forming a trench around the concrete perimeter of the basement floor with a jackhammer. Our team installed our WaterGuard System in the trench, which acts as an underground drain and transports water waste to the sump pump. Next, our team installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump in the corner of the basement, which solves all three water problems in one system and triples the protection. To complete the project, our team covered the open gaps with rock and replaced the concrete. The homeowner was thrilled with the work and loved watching the transformation!

To complete the project, our team covered the open gaps with river rock and applied new concrete over it. Dustin was happy with the repairs and loved the new view under his staircase!

Mark M. of Detroit Lakes, MN had water leaking from his crawl space walls and floor, causing him to worry about water moisture and humidity problems in his home. He called American Waterworks to schedule a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Richie Noreen. Richie went to his home, inspected his crawl space, and came up with a solution that worked for him and his budget. Mark got all of his questions answered about the encaspulation process, so he went ahead with the project and scheduled an installation date. 

Our Foreman, Corey Tollefson, and his production team began the project by applying 1,436 feet of drainage matting on the floor of Mark's crawl space. Our drainage matting is made to direct the water flooding the crawl space to the perimeter crawl space drain and sump pump system. Next, our team installed 2,288 feet of our CleanSpace Encapuslation Vapor Barrier. Our vapor barrier is used to transform the crawl space into a dry, clean, and energy-efficient part of the home. Along with protection from mold and rot, a dry crawl space will also be inhospitable to termites, cockroaches, ants, crickets, and many other pests that need excess moisture to survive.

Job Stories From Detroit Lakes, MN
Driveway Leveled in Detroit Lakes, MN

A homeowner in Detroit Lakes, MN, noticed their driveway had several cracks. Knowing this would not be a do-it-yourself fix, the homeowner wanted to have a professional inspect their concrete. The homeowner was scrolling through social media when they came across a video showcasing our work completed. After seeing the great reviews and work we complete, the homeowner went to our website and signed up for their FREE estimate. Once the estimate details were set, the homeowner waited for the arrival of one of our Design Specialists, Kole. Once Kole arrived, he started by inspecting the driveway in front of the steps. After his detailed inspection, Kole determined that the driveway was sinking due to settlement. Kole recommended that the concrete be lifted and leveled using PolyLevel, a polyurethane foam injection solution. Wanting to avoid concrete replacement, the homeowner agreed with Kole's suggestions. Once they received approval, the crew was assigned to complete the job. Our Foreman, Charlie, and his crew arrived at the home to begin the lifting and leveling process. 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 NexusPro installation was complete, the crew cleaned up their site and left the home. The homeowners were thankful that they did not have to replace their entire slab.

Basement Walls Gets a Lift in Detroit Lakes, MN

A customer from Detroit Lakes, MN, gave us a call when they began to notice one of their basement walls was beginning to bow inward. They also noted that signs of cracking could be seen on the wall. When they called us, we set them up with a FREE estimate and sent our Design Specialist, Richie, out to the property to do a thorough inspection. Once completed, Richie noted that if the customer wanted to avoid any further damage or a more expensive fix down the road, they should act soon. Richie wanted to use our GeoLock anchors to address the bowing. These innovative anchors are used to anchor the problem wall to the hard-packed soil beyond the foundation, permanently stabilizing the foundation wall. The customer agreed with the recommendations and our Foreman and his crew was on the scene in the following weeks. 

The Foreman, Cameron, and his crew, ended up placing a total of 16 anchors in the basement to correct the failing wall. They informed the customer that, once installed, the anchors had the option to be tightened over time to best fit the house as it continued to settle, eliminating any of the homeowner's future worries. 

In the end, the homeowner was satisfied with the work we had done and was happy that their worries were in the past!
