Foundation Repair Fix in Marshall, MN

Foundation Repair Fix in Marshall, MN Foundation Repair Fix in Marshall, MN

Kimberly and Nick T. of Marshall, MN had a small home that they rent out, and their foundation walls were beginning to bow inward. They didn't know why and they wanted to get the problem fixed. They scheduled a FREE estimate with one of our Design Specialists. Our Design Specialist went to their rental home, inspected their foundation wall, and gave them some of our foundation repair system options that would work for their needs. Kimberly and Nick liked the design of our GeoLock Wall Anchors, so they followed through with the project.

Our Foreman and his production team began the installation by digging holes outside of the home beyond the foundation. Inside the basement, our team inserted long, metal rods from the inside to the outside of the home where each hole was. At the end of the rod in the soil, our team installed an anchor plate, which holds the rod in place. Next, from the inside of the basement, our crew installed a GeoLock Wall Anchor to end rod, enabling the wall to stabilize and straighten back out to its normal position. This three-part combination makes for an effective result and ensures the home will no longer need to depend on a bowing or tilting wall. To complete the installation, our Foreman and his team backfilled each hole, compacted the soil, and left the yard and basement looking neater than when they found it. 

Not only do we perform work in foundation repair. We also provide services in basement waterproofing, crawl space repair/encapsulation, radon testing/mitigation, and concrete lifting/repair. Call us today or click HERE to request a free estimate with our Design Specialist team!

Bob H. of Marshall, MN was experiencing water seepage in his basement after heavy rains. He didn't want to have to worry about his basement after every rainstorm, so he got in contact with American Waterworks and scheduled a FREE Estimate. Our Design Specialist went to his home, carefully examined the problem, and provided some options that would fulfill Bob's wants and needs. Bob got all of his questions answered, so he went ahead with our proposal and signed the contract. 

Our Foreman and his production team began the installation by breaking out the concrete floor around the pre-existing sump pump. Our crew replaced it with our TripleSafe Sump Pump System, which provides three layers of protection and solves all three water problems in one system. It also comes with a battery back-up in case of power outage or failure. After the installation, our Foreman and his team filled the open gaps with river rock and pea gravel, mixed, and applied new concrete over them. Bob was happy with the repairs and had a great experience from start to completion!

Job Stories From Lyon County, MN
Inward Bowing Foundation Walls in Taunton, MN

Kevin A. in Taunton, MN realized that all 4 foundation walls in his basement had cracked and started bowing over time. He knew he needed to have a foundation repair expert look at it right away because if he waited any longer he may have to replace the entire foundation, which is very expensive.

While doing research, he found American Waterworks and was pleased to see that we have many years of experiencing repairing foundations. He called us, and we sent a Design Specialist to his home to develop a solution and give him a FREE estimate. Kevin was pleased to learn that we could permanently repair his foundation by installing wall anchors. 

Our production team installed 22 wall anchors throughout the perimeter of the basement. Once the anchors were installed and tightened, Kevin could already tell that the walls had dramatically straightened. Our wall anchors are backed by a lifetime warranty, so Kevin can rest assured that his foundation is permanently protected, and he will not have to incur the hefty cost of replacing the entire foundation. 

Cracked Walls Restored with PowerBraces in Balaton, MN

Brad in Balaton, MN had large cracks running through his foundation walls in his basement. The soil surrounding the home was expanding and pushing against the walls, which was causing the damage. He wanted to find a permanent solution to his foundation problem before matters got worse and it turned into a much more expensive and time-consuming project. He contacted American Waterworks to receive a free estimate. He met with one of our Design Specialists who recommended having PowerBraces installed to permanently secure the wall.

Our production crew installed 15 PowerBraces along the cracked and damaged walls. The PowerBrace is a patented foundation wall repair system that's designed to stabilize failing basement walls and provide the potential to straighten walls over time. PowerBraces can be installed with no disruption to outside soils or landscaping. This foundation wall system installs quickly, immediately and permanently halting the inward movement of foundation walls. The installation process took a full day to complete, but now Brad can rest easy knowing that the foundation of his home is stable.

Water Seeping Into Basement in Minneota, MN

A homeowner in Minneota, MN was experiencing water seeping into her basement through her floor. She had suffered from a wet basement for a long time, and decided she needed to find a long-term solution. She called the waterproofing experts at American Waterworks to receive a free estimate. Our Design Specialist, Chad Johnson, inspected her basement and developed a thorough solution to solve her problem.

We started installing our waterproofing system by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement floor and laying our WaterGuard drainage system. Then, we installed our SuperSump sump pump, which we connected to the drainage system. Water now properly flows through the drainage system, into the sump pump and is then expelled from the home through the discharge line. We also installed our SaniDry dehumidifier, to remove excess moisture from the basement.

Sunken Concrete Patio Raised in Tracy, MN

Steve in Tracy, MN had a patio that had settled about an inch and a half. The concrete was poured in 2011 and was still in good condition, however he wanted to have the concrete raised back to its original position. He contacted American Waterworks to learn more about our concrete repair options. We sent a Design Specialist to his home to inspect his concrete and provide him with a free estimate. He was pleased to learn that our PolyLevel foam solution is faster, more durable and less invasive than traditional mudjacking, so he scheduled the project.

Our concrete repair experts drilled small holes through the concrete slabs to inject the foam. When the foam is injected, it fills the voids below the concrete and lifts it. Once they finished lifting the concrete, they filled back the holes they drilled with concrete and they cleaned their work area. The process only took a couple of hours to complete, and now Steve can enjoy beautiful, safe concrete for years to come!

GeoLock Wall Anchors Stabilize Basement Wall

John K. of Lynd, MN had cracked foundation walls in his basement and wanted to get them stabilized before it was too late. He called American Waterworks to set up a Free Estimate. We sent out one of our Design Specialists to inspect the problem and come up with a solution. After an in-depth inspection, John got an installation date on the schedule. 

Our Foreman, Matt Zeller, and his production crew began the installation process by digging four holes outside of the home. Our crew installed a long, metal rod in each hole, from the soil to the interior foundation wall. On each end of the rod, our team installed our GeoLock Wall Anchors. Our anchor system provides permanent relief to foundation walls and shifts them back into their normal position. To complete the installation, Matt and his crew replaced the soil and made sure the property was clean. John was content with the outcome of the project, and appreciate our team's efforts!
