Water in Basement in West Union, IA

Douglas P. in West Union, IA had water seeping into his basement. It was causing damage to his home, so he knew that it was time to contact a waterproofing professional. After researching waterproofing contractors, he decided that American Waterworks was the best fit for him. We sent a Design Specialist to his home to inspect the situation and to give Douglas a FREE estimate. Douglas agreed with the waterproofing plan that our Design Specialist developed, so we set a date for the installation. 

Our production crew installed a full perimeter of our WaterGuard drainage system around his basement floor, which then connected to the TripleSafe sump pump system. If any water seeps into his basement, it will drain through the WaterGuard to the sump pump and will then be expelled through the discharge line to the outside of his home. Our waterproofing system is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Douglas can rest easy knowing that his basement will always be protected.

They got in contact with our office staff at American Waterworks and scheduled a FREE Estimate with one of our Design Specialists. Our Design Specialist went to their home to inspect the crawl space and come up with a solution that worked for them, their home repair needs, and their budget. The homeowners were confident in the proposal of our Drainage Matting and CleanSpace Encapsulation and their warranties, so they signed the contract, wrote out a deposit check, and scheduled an installation date. 

Our Foreman and his production team began the process by introducing themselves to the homeowners and answering any last-minute questions that they had. After a thorough introduction, our team started the crawl space encapsulation process. Our crew installed 300 feet of our Drainage Matting on the ground. This special matting is designed to give the water flooding into the crawl space a channel underneath the crawl space liner and provides extra durability to handle the job.

When you see signs like this, it is time to get help or call your local contractor! 

A male resident of Hawkeye, IA was facing this exact problem in his basement. Water was leaking from his pre-existing sump pump, causing him to worry about damage to the property. He found American Waterworks on Google, so he called our main office line and scheduled a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist. He went out to the homeowner's house to examine the leaks and determine which sump pump replacement would be best. Our Design Specialist proposed our TripleSafe Sump Pump System, which provides three layers of protection and solves all three water problems in one system.

Musty Order Concerns Homeowner in Saint Lucas, IA

A homeowner in Saint Lucas, IA, noticed a musty smell in their basement. Knowing American Waterworks does great work, the homeowner visited our website and signed up for their FREE estimate. After setting the appointment, our Design Specialist, Brian, met with the homeowners and completed an in-depth inspection. Following his inspection, Brain proposed that the homeowners fully waterproof their basements to eliminate the orders and prevent any further damage. Understanding this is the best option, the homeowners agreed and the waterproofing process began. We sent out our Foreman, Jeromy, and his crew went out to the home to begin waterproofing the entire basement. The crew began by installing the WaterGuard, a below-floor drain that rests in a bed of drainage stone on the top of the foundation footing. First, the crew dug channels around the perimeter of the basement. Once the channels were dug, the crew then laid some rocks and the WaterGuard in those trenches. After the WaterGuard is put in place, the crew covers it with more rocks and cement. Following the WaterGuard installation, the crew insulated the walls to insulate, waterproof, and give the basement a finished appearance. The homeowners were impressed with the fantastic job done by the crew. If you are experiencing something similar, sign up for your FREE estimate today!
