 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.

Dave C. in Mankato, MN had two bowing foundation walls in his basement. He had heard about American Waterworks and the foundation repair that we do, so he contacted us to get a FREE estimate.

Our Design Specialist, Eric Hazelton, went onsite to inspect his foundation problem. Eric developed a plan to install 11 wall anchors throughout his basement to ensure his foundation would be permanently stable. Dave agreed that was the best option, so an installation date was set. 

The installation process only took one day. Dave was pleased that he could already see a drastic improvement once the anchors were tightened. Wall anchors are a permanent solution that are backed by a lifetime guarantee, so Dave can rest easy knowing that his foundation is stable.

Foundation repair and concrete leveling

In addition to our basement expertise, we also excel at foundation repair and concrete leveling. We understand how crucial a foundation is to the integrity of your home, and we know how scary foundation cracks and bowing walls can be. Using a line of foundation repair products designed by structural and geotechnical engineers at Foundation Supportworks, we can solve these issues and more when you come to us with your foundation needs.

If concrete slab settlement is affecting your home, we will provide PolyLevel® to lift and level these slabs back to their original positions. Concrete leveling is more important than you might think because uneven, bumpy driveways and sidewalks can cause tripping hazards - be sure to ask us about concrete lifting when we visit your home!

American Waterworks also offers NexusPro and SealantPro for a comprehensive solution for damaged concrete.  NexusPro is an incredibly durable and long-lasting solution for cracked concrete repair.

Bowing Wall Secured in North Mankato, MN

Mike C. in North Mankato, MN had a cracked and bowing foundation wall in his basement. He contacted American Waterworks after seeing an advertisement because he was concerned about the pressure it was putting on his foundation. Our Design Specialist, Eric Hazelton, went to his home to provide him with a FREE onsite inspection and design a solution. Eric recommended that we install PowerBraces to stabilize his walls and protect his foundation. Mike liked the proposal that Eric presented to him, so he decided to move forward with repairing his foundation.

Our Foreman, Juan Pena, and his crew installed 7 PowerBraces along the bowing wall. The PowerBraces are designed to stabilize failing basement walls and provide the potential for the wall to straighten over time. The beams are covered with a zinc-coating to protect it from rusting or deteriorating. The process was less invasive than Mike thought it would be. Mike is glad he chose the right solution through American Waterworks to protect his foundation for the long-term. 

No matter what is happening with your foundation- we can help. Don't wait until the problem becomes so severe that your foundation fails. Contact us to receive a free estimate!

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.

Looking to solve our problem of getting water in basement
Project Location: Mankato, MN
Seepage in our unfinished basement. House was built in 1916, brick/cement walls have clearly been patched and treated previously. Water comes in through old patch seams on the floor and walls. Has worsened from only 1 side of the house 3 years ago, to almost all sides of the house this year. We know there may be a need for drain tile and/or sump pump, and possible sealing around the foundation on the outside (as there appears to be some old sealing that has pulled away from the seams).
Project Location: Mankato, MN
During heavy rain falls we will get a small amount of water in the basement. Was a finished basement but also redoing it due to knowing issues with the walls and water on the floor at times. We have cracks in the foundation walls, older windows and an egress thats has issues also that I have discovered since opening the walls. The house was built in 1935 with poured concrete walls and was later lifted with a 18" brick wall set on top of the poured concrete wall.

We have a water issue in our basement along three walls in different rooms for sure. We removed paneling recently that the previous homeowners had put up and the brick is so damp it's spongy. We also recently have had an issue with mold along the bottom of one wall.
Project Location: Mankato, MN
We have multiple water leaks coming in from the foundation/concrete behind the walls. After the last storm we had a lot of water and I tore up the drywall and carpet in some of the rooms to see what the issue was. I was hoping to have this looked at and repaired. Thank you.
