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.

Job Stories From Forest Lake, MN
Concrete Sidewalk Saved in Forest Lake, MN

A homeowner in Forest Lake, MN, grew concerned regarding the many cracks throughout their sidewalk. Unsure of what caused the cracks, the homeowners decided to get an expert to provide them with some answers. Overwhelmed by all their options, the homeowner decided to ask their local Facebook group for referrals. Several members of the group linked to our Facebook page, so the homeowner decided to check it out. Impressed by our excellent work, they decided to visit our website and sign up for their FREE estimate. After setting up their FREE estimate, we sent one of our Design Specialists to complete the job. Once they arrived, they completed their detailed inspection and were able to determine that sinking was the root of the issue. The Design Specialist recommended that the sidewalk be lifted and leveled to prevent further sinking and cracking. After deliberating their options, the homeowner agreed with the Design Specialist's plan and preparations began. Our Foreman, Dylon, and his crew were assigned to complete the job. As soon as they arrived, they began preparing for the PolyLevel installation. The PolyLevel, a polyurethane foam injection solution, will be inserted underneath the entire sidewalk. The PolyLevel is installed by strategically inserting small holes throughout the slabs. Next, injection ports are inserted in those holes. Then, the polyurethane foam is injected underneath the concrete to fill the voids and raise the slab. Finally, the holes and control joints are sealed. Once the PolyLevel installation was complete, the crew shifted their focus to filling the many cracks. To fill these cracks, the crew used the NexusPro Sealant, a silicone-based sealant. To NexusPro solution, the crew drills, smooths, and prepares the crack with a non-absorbent backer rod filler. Then, the NexusPro 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. 

Front Porch Stairs Get a Lift in Forest Lake, MN

A customer from Forest Lake, MN, gave us a call when he began to notice that his front porch steps were beginning to sink into the soil beneath the home. When he called in, we set him up with our FREE estimate, and our Design Specialist, Brian, headed out to the property to do a thorough inspection of the issue and make recommendations about how we could best help him. Brian recommended our Lift and Level option for this project. The customer agreed and work began shortly after. Our Foreman, Jose, and his crew began by strategically drilling holes into the stairs of the property, and then injected our PolyLevel foam into the holes and monitored the lifting process. Our PolyLevel solution is an expanding polyurethane foam that, when injected below a concrete slab, fills the gaps caused by soil erosion and is used to raise and stabilize concrete surfaces. Along with this solution, the crew installed two of our Helical Piers under the stoops to provide extra straightening and stability. Our helical piers are the best solution for lifting lighter loads and the installation is fast, effective, and have a great deal of versatility for stabilizing and restoring foundations and masonry elements alike. When the job was completed our customer was satisfied with the work we had done and was happy to know he didn't have to worry about his steps sinking any further.

Wet Basement 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 decided to contact us for a free estimate and see how we could help. We sent a Design Specialist to his home to inspect the situation and to develop a solution. Our Design Specialist 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 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 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.
