Job Stories From Freeborn County, MN
Wet Basement in Hayward, MN

Dennis O. in Hayward, MN had water seeping into his basement that was causing damage to his home and it was making the space unlivable. Dennis decided it was time to seek help from a professional waterproofing contractor, so he began to research local companies. He came across American Waterworks and was pleased to see that we offer FREE onsite inspections, so he set an appointment.

One of our Design Specialists, Mike Radosevich, went to his home to evaluate the situation and find a solution. Mike developed a thorough plan to waterproof his entire basement for a lifetime. Dennis felt that Mike’s plan was the best fit for his needs, so he moved forward with the installation.

Our production team removed the concrete perimeter of his basement to install our WaterGuard drainage system. Then, the TripleSafe sump pump was installed. Any water seeping into his basement will now properly drain to the sump pump, which will then be discharged from the home. Dennis also chose to have our CleanSpace vapor barrier installed, which prevents leaks and mold growth. The CleanSpace brightened his basement and made it a more welcoming space. Dennis is pleased that he chose the option that protects his basement for a lifetime. He can now enjoy a dry, livable basement!

Inward Bowing Walls in Hollandale, MN

Chad M. in Hollandale, MN noticed that a wall in his basement had cracked and was bowing inward. He was concerned about the pressure this was putting on his foundation and the potential damage it could cause, so he started looking for a foundation repair contractor. He saw a commercial for American Waterworks and was glad to see that we specialize in foundation repair. He contacted us and set an appointment for a FREE onsite estimate.

We sent a Design Specialist to his home to evaluate the situation and find a solution. While onsite, our Design Specialist noticed that another wall in his basement was also bowing. In order to protect his foundation, our Design Specialist recommended that we install 5 wall anchors and 9 wall braces. Chad knew how costly it can be to replace a foundation, so he decided it was in his best interest to permanently stabilize his walls.

Our production crew installed the braces vertically against the wall to force the wall back to its original position. Next, the wall anchors were installed through the other bowing wall and into the soil outside of the house. The anchors are then tightened, which pushes the wall back into place and prevents it from bowing again.

The installation took a few days, however, our foundation repair products are backed by a lifetime warranty, so Chad will never again have to worry about the stability of his foundation. Chad is glad he chose to protect his home for the long-term.

Basement Leak in Alden, MN

Dennis M. was suffering from water leaking into his basement during heavy rains. He was tired of dealing with this every time there was a storm, so a friend recommended that he contact American Waterworks. He called us to receive a free estimate, and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Jeremy Radtke, to inspect his wet basement and design a solution. Jeremy worked with Dennis to develop a unique plan for his specific needs. Dennis liked the proposal and felt that he was in good hands with American Waterworks, so he moved forward with waterproofing his basement.

Our team installed a full perimeter of our WaterGuard drainage system, a TripleSafe sump pump, and lateral lines that connect the drainage system to the sump pump. When water leaks into his basement, it is now properly guided through the WaterGuard, to the sump pump, and then the water is pumped through the discharge line to the outside of the home. Our waterproofing system is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Dennis is glad he chose a permanent solution to protect his basement from water.

Damaged Foundation Restored in Albert Lea, MN

Alton in Albert Lea, MN had large cracks throughout his basement walls. He was concerned about the pressure that was being placed on his foundation and wanted to secure his walls before the damage became any worse. He contacted American Waterworks and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Pete Wangen, to his home to inspect his situation and provide him with a FREE estimate. Pete determined that we would be able to permanently repair his foundation by installing PowerBraces, which is a much more cost-effective solution compared to replacing the foundation. Alton was pleased with Pete’s solution, so they scheduled the installation.

Our Foreman, Hugo Sanchez, and his crew installed 7 PowerBraces against the walls. PowerBraces are strong steel I-beams that have a special rust-resistant zinc coating to ensure that your system will look and perform like new for years to come. By installing the PowerBraces, we immediately halted the inward movement of the foundation walls. The PowerBraces should be tightened over time, which can gradually straighten the walls. Alton was pleased with the end result and he is glad he chose to permanently restore his foundation.

Wet Basement in Clarks Grove, MN Gets Waterproofed

Allen J. in Clarks Grove, MN was suffering from a wet basement. He wasn’t quite sure where the water was entering, so he decided it would be best to have a professional inspect his basement. After researching waterproofing contractors, he decided to call American Waterworks for a free estimate. We sent our Design Specialist, Jeremy Girgen, to his home to develop the right solution for his specific waterproofing needs. He enjoyed working with Jeremy and was pleased with the thorough plan he created, so he scheduled a date to have our waterproofing system installed.

Our production crew installed our WaterGuard drainage system around the perimeter of the basement floor and a SuperSump sump pump in the corner along with a battery backup. Then, they installed the discharge line from the sump pump into the yard. This is where the water is expelled from the home. The installation only took one day to complete, and now Allen’s peace of mind has been restored. He is thrilled that he’s been able to enjoy a dry, healthier basement ever since the installation.

Bowing Basement Walls Straightened and Stabilized in Glenville, MN

Lisa H. in Glenville, MN had two basement walls that were bowing inward. She was concerned about the pressure that was being put on her foundation, so she started researching her options. Luckily, Lisa knows one of our employees and she went to them for advice. We were happy to set her up with a free estimate from one of our Design Specialists. After inspecting her basement walls, we determined that the best course of action to repair her walls would be to install wall anchors. We explained that repairing her foundation is far more cost-effective, less invasive and more efficient that replacing it. After meeting with our Design Specialist and learning about her options, she chose to move forward with the installation.

Our production crew started the installation by excavating the soil around the two damaged walls. Then, they drilled small holes through the block foundation and inserted long, metal rods. They secured both ends of the rods with anchor plates and then tightened them as far as they could go. The installation went very smoothly and much faster than Lisa had expected. She is happy with the results and is glad she no longer has to worry about the stability of her home.

Sunken Concrete Patio Gets Transformed in Emmons, MN

Doug N. in Emmons, MN had a severely cracked and sunken patio, causing multiple trip hazards. Over time, the patio had sunk a total of 4 inches. He decided it was time to take action and have his patio repaired. He contacted American Waterworks for a free estimate, so we sent one of our Design Specialists to his home to inspect the concrete and provide him with a solution. Doug was pleased to learn that our PolyLevel concrete repair solution is faster, durable, and more affordable than traditional mudjacking. 

Our concrete repair experts drilled multiple small holes into the concrete slabs where they needed to be raised. Then, they injected the polymer foam, called PolyLevel, to raise the concrete. They continued this process for a couple of hours until the concrete was completely even and back to its original position. Lastly, they sealed the cracks in the concrete with our NexusPro sealant, which protects the concrete and gives it a nice, finished look. Doug was impressed with the transformation and was happy that he could use his patio just 30 minutes after the installation! 

SaniDry Dehumidifer Installed in Freeborn, MN

A bank in Freeborn, MN was experiencing high levels of humidity in their building. They had a musty smell lingering in their office and noticed that many employees were experiencing allergies. They had previously used our services and had a great experience, so they contacted us to see if we could help control the humidity. The Design Specialist that we sent to inspect the business recommended that they have our SaniDry dehumidifier installed.

The SaniDry uses a powerful blowing motor that circulates dry air throughout the space, which quickly and aggressively dries out the room. The water that is collected can be drained into a sump pit, a section of a perimeter drain or a condensate pump. Our dehumidifiers have the capacity to remove 109 liters of water per day and have an ENERGY STAR rating for energy efficiency. The dehumidifier we installed in the bank is now protecting their office from excess moisture that can lead to mold, mildew and dust mites.
