The basement is more than a room to hold your furnace and hot water heater. It is the foundation of your house. Leaks and moisture in the basement can cause damage to the wood supporting the house as well as provide a breeding ground for mold and mildew. American Waterworks has been helping residents of Minneapolis, MN by providing exceptional basement waterproofing, foundation repair, concrete leveling, and crawl space repair for over two decades.
Water is constantly attacking your basement wall, trying to find any crack or hole to flow into your home. It can find its way through the pores and tiny cracks in the concrete, old joints that need to be shored, or utility pipe openings where the seal has broken down over time.
American Waterworks uses the Basement Systems WaterGuard waterproofing system to ensure your basement is leak-free for an affordable price. The WaterGuard system saves you from:
The WaterGuard system is a drainage system installed between the concrete floor and inner basement wall. It is designed to hug the wall, preventing clogs yet allowing you to check for debris and clean it, if necessary. In addition to WaterGuard, American Waterworks also offers a variety of other basement waterproofing products, including sump pumps, dehumidifiers, wall options, and so much more!
Have you noticed dangerous cracks and uneven surfaces forming in your driveway, sidewalk, concrete steps, or patio? Does it look like the concrete is sinking? Having problems with sunken outdoor concrete is not unusual in Minnesota where soil erosion is often the result of the changing seasons and a weak soil base.
You do not have to worry about tilted or sinking sections of sidewalks, concrete steps, or concrete slabs anymore. American Waterworks, an expert in the concrete leveling business for more than 20 years, has you covered. While other contractors may rely on simple, short-term fixes such as slab jacking or grout pumping, we here at American Waterworks use the revolutionary PolyLEVEL™ material to fix unsettled soil for concrete leveling and lifting.
With PolyLEVEL™, we are able to physically lift your concrete slabs and return them to their desired level positions while also leveling the ground underneath. This process prevents continued soil settlement from cracking and disrupting your concrete again in the future.
American Waterworks also offers NexusPro and SealantPro for a seamless driveway. NexusPro is an incredibly durable and long-lasting solution for cracked concrete repair. NexusPro is resistant to UV rays and harsh weather, and sets in as little as one hour. SealantPro, our driveway sealing formula, is not available in your local home improvement store and protects your concrete against damage for 3-5 times longer! Call today for a free estimate on amazing PolyLevel injections, NexusPro or SealantPro applications.
The Earth and its seasons are ever-changing, shifting the ground beneath us. For the crawl space and foundation under your home, this can spell disaster. Soil composition is rarely taken into account when a house is designed but can wreak havoc for years to come. If the ground is too dry, it cannot support your foundation which can cause it to settle and deteriorate. Conversely, if the ground is too wet, your house’s structure can be lifted and moisture can seep into your crawl space, decaying your home’s wooden supports and flooring from underground.
Summers are especially harsh on your crawl space as hot air mixing with cold creates a breeding ground for mold and mildew. Updrafts then bring these spores up into your living space, creating an unhealthy environment for your family. Alternately, cold air in the crawl space during the winter months forces your furnace to work harder, reducing its longevity. If you've noticed these forces at work, you may be in need of crawl space or foundation repair.
Damaged or not, American Waterworks is poised to keep your foundation strong and crawl spaces clean. We implement foundation piering using helical piles and push piers to stabilize your house’s footings as well as anchors to align the foundation. For your crawl space, we use the Clean Space vapor barrier system to cover the sub-floor area of the crawl space, keeping moisture out and warmth in. These simple foundation repairs and crawl space encapsulation techniques can stop further damage to your home and provide a safer environment for your family.
If you have noticed leaks in your basement, cracks in your foundation, moisture in your crawl space, or uneven concrete slabs, American Waterworks has the solution you need. Schedule a free estimate with us today in Minneapolis, MN!
