Cracked Foundation in Mankato, MN

 Mr. Conner's foundation walls are cracking and pushing inward due to the expansive soils and hydrostatic pressure on the walls from outside his home. We recommended installing eleven Geo-Lock Wall Anchors along the bowing wall to stabilize and restore the wall back to its original position.  The soil anchors were placed in the ground outside his home. Steel rods attached to soil anchors extend through the foundation wall and wall plates. Wall plates distribute clamping pressure. Tightening nuts on the threaded ends of the rods stabilize the wall for a permanent solution.

Gordon G. in Mankato, MN had a bowing foundation wall in his basement. He saw an ad for American Waterworks in the phone book and called us to see if we could help him. We were happy to send our Design Specialist, Eric Hazelton, to his home to do a free onsite estimate. Eric developed a plan to have our team install anchors along the bowing wall to secure and stabilize it. 

The installation process took two days, and Gordon was pleased that he could see immediate results. Our crew left him with a tightening kit so that he could continue tightening the anchors over time until the wall is completely straightened.

Job Stories From Mankato, MN
Sagging Floor Gets Stabilized

Virginia from Mankato, MN got in contact with us when she began to notice her main level floor was beginning to sag. She was afraid that if she left the issue unresolved, she would run the risk of severely compromising the structural integrity of the home. When she came across our services, she decided to give us a call. When we spoke with her, we set her up with our FREE estimate, entitling her to a thorough, no-obligation inspection by one of our System Design Specialists in the Waterproofing and Foundation division. Once the appointment was scheduled one of our Design Specialists, Dylan W., headed out to the property. Once he completed his walkthrough, he informed Virginia that she was experiencing the issue because of instability from the foundation below. He suggested our SmartJack reinforcement system to correct the issue. He explained that our SmartJacks provide a solid support for sagging and undersized beams, restoring stability and straightness to sagging floor joists. He went on to say that, because of their design, the SmartJacks can be adjusted over time to provide additional straightening and leveling action as the house continues to settle over the years, ensuring constant support. Virginia agreed with the recommendation and work began shortly after. 

Our Foremen for the project, Kiko, and his crew ended up installing 5 of our SmartJacks throughout the basement of the home. Once the job was completed, Virginia was happy to know that she had found a solution that was going to give her peace of mind for many years to come! 

TripleSafe Sump Pump Installed in Mankato, MN

A homeowner in Mankato, MN had excess water build-up in their basement and was worried about potential flooding and water damage to the foundation of the house and home appliances such as water heaters as well as the washer and dryer. They called the Appointment Center here at American Waterworks to set up their FREE estimate, which entittles them to a free home inspection by one of our design specialists. Once an appointment was scheduled, our Design Specialist then attended to his home and began a full thorough house inspection to get a proper diagnosis of the issue the homeowner was experiencing. Once completed, our Design Specialist proposed to the homeowner that the best solution was to invest in our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. The homeowner was confident in the product and warranty, so they proceeded with the project by scheduling the date of installation. 

 

Our Foreman and his team then proceeded to begin the project by breaking out the concrete at the lowest part of the basement, forming a suitable hole for the sump basket. Following the installation of the sump basket, that team then proceeded by installing two pumps as well as the battery backup. The TripleSafe Sump pump is the best pump we provide her at American Waterworks which triples the protection of one's home and helps solve all water issues in one system keeping the basement dry and clean in severe weather storms. To complete the job the team covered the gaps around the sump basket river rock to prevent soil from affecting the pumps and apply new concrete around the sump basket to give a finishing look.

PowerBraces and GeoLocks Help Support Issue Wall in Mankato, MN

Wesley O. from Mankato, MN had several problems with the foundation of his home. His foundation was experiencing cracks that we caused by the bowing of the walls in his basement. Wesley was worried that this problem may worsen over time and called the Appointment Center at American Waterworks to schedule his FREE estimate with one of our Design Specialists. Once the appointment was set and ready to go, our Design Specialist then attended Wesley's home and began to conduct a thorough home inspection to provide a solution that is best for the foundation of the home and prevent any other issues from arising. Our Design Specialist recommended Wesley to invest in our PowerBrace and our GeoLock Anchor System which both are wall and foundation repair systems that help stabilize the home and provide potential straightening of the bowing walls over time. Wesley liked the proposal and proceeded to set a date of installation. 

 

Our Foreman, Juan Pena, along with his production crew then went to Wesley's home and began the installation process. To begin the production crew start by taking measurements to strategically place the PowerBraces and GeoLocks along the problem walls. For the GeoLocks Anchor System, there are holes that are dug along the exterior of the house, alongside the problem wall. Once this part of the process is done, the crew proceeds by drilling a metal rod through the wall into these designated holes. Attached to the end of the rod is an anchor plate which helps keep the wall from further bowing. Once the Anchor system is placed the homeowner may tighten these plates to straighten the wall. Wesley was satisfied with the installation and happy that we were able to improve the quality and the structural integrity of his home!

Dangerous Levels of Radon Mitigated in Mankato, MN

Anne L. and her husband in Mankato, MN had recently purchased a home and their realtor recommended that they have the home tested for radon before they move in. After learning that radon is the #1 cause of lung cancer for non-smokers and kills over 21,000 people each year, they started looking for a company to test their home, so they would not be putting their health at risk. Their realtor recommended using American Waterworks, so they gave us a call and we sent our one of our Design Specialists, Jeremy Radtke, to set up the test. 48 hours later, Jeremy came back to read the test results. He discovered that their house did in fact have high levels of radon. Jeremy recommended that they have our radon mitigation system installed as soon as possible and they agreed.

Our radon mitigation specialists drilled a hole through the concrete in the basement to create a suction point for the gas. Then, a PVC pipe is inserted which goes up through the house and exits the home through the roof. A fan is installed at the top of the PVC pipe to ensure that the radon gas is being pushed away from the home. The post radon mitigation test showed a drastic reduction in radon gas, and they were relieved that their health would not be compromised. The installation only took one day to complete, and now they can rest easy knowing that their home is protected.
