Waterproofing Basement System Installation in Forest Lake, MN

Stephen W. in Forest Lake, MN had water seeping into his basement and he did not have a sufficient sump pump to discharge the water from the home. He saw one of our waterproofing advertisements and decided it would be a good idea to get a FREE estimate to waterproof his basement.

Our Design Specialist, Chad Johnson, went to his home to inspect the situation and to develop a solution. Chad determined that the best way to ensure that Stephen would never have to worry about a wet basement would be to install WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement and then install a SuperSump sump pump to properly expel the water to the outside. Stephen agreed that this was the right plan for his basement, so we sent a crew to install our system.

The installation took a couple of days, but Steven will reap the benefits of this system for a lifetime. Since the installation, he has had a dry, clean basement. Our waterproofing system is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Stephen can rest easy knowing he invested in permanently protecting his home from water seeping into his home and causing damage.

A homeowner in Forest Lake, MN had moisture in his crawl space, and he was concerned about the damage that was being caused. He contacted American Waterworks because he was interested in our waterproofing and encapsulation services. We sent on our Design Specialists, Shane Nephew, to meet with him and evaluate the situation. Shane developed a unique plan to permanently restore this homeowner’s crawl space. 

Our Foreman, Juan Pena, and his production crew got to work and removed the debris from the crawl space. They began the project by installing our Drainage matting on the floor of the crawl space and our recommended TripleSafe sump pump. Then, they installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier to completely encapsulate the space and spray foam insulation in the rim joists to prevent energy loss and keep heat in. Lastly, they installed our SaniDry dehumidifier to take care of any humidity. The homeowner is glad his crawl space is now a clean, dry, and more energy-efficient space.

Marty and Faith S. of Forest Lake, MN were experiencing severe water exposure throughout their crawl space, causing them to worry about the value of their home.

Marty and Faith got all their questions answered so they scheduled an installation date. 

Our Foreman, Tremaine Jackson and his production crew began the installation by clearing everything out of the crawl space. Next, our team installed 116 feet of our FoamMax Wall Panels, which is a foam insulation that brightens the room and helps save energy. Lastly, our crew applied 730 feet of our CleanSpace Wall Vapor Encapsulation. Our CleanSpace is made to prevent mold, mildew, and humidity, and it also acts as a wall and floor protectant. The work was completed within a couple of days, and Marty and Faith had a remarkable experience from start to finish!

Stephen agreed that this was the right plan for his basement, so we sent a crew there to install our system.

Our crew removed the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and laid the WaterGuard drainage system which led to the new sump pump that they installed. Then, they installed the discharge line from the sump pump to outside of the home, which is where the water drains to. The installation took a couple of days, but Steven will reap the benefits of this system for a lifetime. Since the installation, he has had a dry, clean basement. Our waterproofing system is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Stephen can rest easy knowing he invested in permanently protecting his home from water seeping into his home and causing damage.

During heavy rainfalls, our office has significant water entering in 2 areas near the entryway. We added silicone where the concrete meets the entryway, as well as added some concrete patching, but the issue has not gone away. We are not sure where the water is penetrating into the building, or how to fix. I can send photos if that is helpful.
