Bowing Foundation Wall in La Crescent, MN

Bowing Foundation Wall in La Crescent, MN

Bowing Foundation Wall in La Crescent, MN Bowing Foundation Wall in La Crescent, MN

Larry M. in La Crescent, MN had a bowing foundation wall in his basement. He was concerned that his wall was no longer stable and that it was putting pressure on the foundation of the home. He knew how expensive it can be to replace and entire foundation, so he decided he needed to have a professional take a look and see what his options were. One of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, went onsite to give him a free estimate. Rick recommended installing 5 Geo-Lock wall anchors on Larry's bowing foundation wall. 

Larry was pleased to discover that our wall anchors are backed by a lifetime warranty, which made him comfortable having them installed. Larry could already see the difference in stability of that wall once the anchors were tightened. Larry now has peace of mind knowing his wall has been permanently been secured and stabilized.

Kay H. in La Crescent, MN had water leaking into her basement. She was concerned about the high humidity and the damage it was causing. She saw advertising on one of our vehicles in her area and decided to give us a call. She met with one of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, who inspected the home and proposed a permanent solution. 

Our Foreman, Matt Zeller, and his production crew began the waterproofing project by first removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and installing our WaterGuard drainage system. Then, they installed our recommended TripleSafe sump pump, which is backed by three levels of protection. Any water is now guided through the WaterGuard to the sump pump, and from there, is expelled from the home. Lastly, our SaniDry dehumidifier was put in place to take care of any humidity. Kay was happy with the project and glad her basement is now a dry, clean space.

Kelly S. in La Crescent, MN contacted American Waterworks after being referred by another contractor. The home had an old sump pump that was unable to keep up with heavy rains and snow melt. She had water leaking into her basement, and she wanted a permanent solution. She met with Pete Wangen, one of our Design Specialists, who worked with Kelly to create a custom plan for her home. 

Our Foreman, Matt Zeller, and his production crew began the project by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and through the  middle of the floor, then laying our WaterGuard drainage system. Next, they hung our CleanSpace vapor barrier along the walls to further protect the space from moisture and mold. Then, they filled back the gaps in the floor with rock before replacing the concrete and cleaning up their work area. Kelly was pleased with the results and glad she made the investment to protect her home.

Job Stories From La Crescent, MN
High Radon Gas Levels in La Crescent

According to the World Health Organization, radon causes 15% of the world's lung cancer cases and kills 20,000 people each year. David B. in La Crescent, MN learned about the dangers of radon, so he chose to have his home tested by American Waterworks. The test results showed a radon level of 5.5 pCi/L. The EPA recommends that homeowners take action when radon levels are at 4pCi/L or higher, so American Waterworks took the time to walk David through the radon mitigation installation process and answer any of his questions. David did not want to compromise his family's health any longer, so he chose to have our radon mitigation system installed.

Our crew drilled a hole through the floor in the basement to insert a PVC pipe and create a suction point for the radon gas. Then the gas is vented through the pipe and out of the home. A fan is also installed at the top of the PVC pipe where the gas is vented out to ensure that the gas is pushed away from the home. After the radon mitigation system was installed, we tested his radon levels again and the results came back as 0.9pCi/L. David now has peace of mind knowing that he took the necessary steps to protect his family from this dangerous gas.

Vicinity of Root River Lane in La Crescent
Hello, The address I provided is where I am staying right now but the project is for a different house that I will be purchasing in the upcoming month. The garage is 40x40 laying on a free floating concrete slab. After the 2007 flood in the midwest, the garage sank on the back side. After several mud jacking fixes, the garage is back down to 6 inches on the left and 3 inches on the right. The concrete slab has cracked a straight line 10 feet from the back of the garage. The garage was built in 1996. Now, this project is not our first priority since the property is a bit of a "fixer-upper". But, getting a quote or at least going through different options (seeing as mud jacking has not worked) to fix this problem would be helpful. You may use my email address to respond with your thoughts. Thanks

This is one of our rental properties which we purchased last fall. The basement is finished. Water lines itself around the edges of the four walls. Nothing heavy, always light. I am sure it is not a grade issue.
