A couple from Minneapolis, MN contacted us when they moved into their new home and discovered that their Radon levels were above 4.0. The couple knew that dangerous Radon levels are dangerous to inhale and with a new baby on the way, didn't want to take any risks. They called into the office and used their FREE estimate to have one of our Design Specialists, Ryan, out to the house to assess the situation. When he arrived, Ryan informed the couple that Radon is a naturally occurring odorless gas that is caused by the breakdown and decay of the soil around the foundation of the home. He went on to say that Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer right behind cigarette smoking. Once the inspection was concluded, Ryan recommended the installation of a Radon mitigation system in the home. He explained to the couple that this system works to pull Radon from the home, pipe it upwards, and expel it outwards and away from the home through a vent. The couple agreed and work began shortly after. 

Our Production crew, led by our Foreman, Dakota, installed the system in no time. Now the couple can expand their family without worry that their safe space may be inhibited by an invisible threat!

Patented concrete leveling, cracked concrete repair & concrete sealing

Have you noticed sinking, cracked concrete driveways, sidewalks, steps, patios, or other damaged slabs? Sunken outdoor concrete is not unusual in Minnesota since soil erosion occurs from the changing seasons. However, sinking, cracked concrete is still a problem nonetheless. Not only do damaged slabs lower the property's curb appeal and value, but they also create dangerous falling hazards and possible liability issues.

But you never have to worry about tripping over an uneven sidewalk again. American Waterworks has been offering reliable concrete repair and concrete leveling solutions for more than 20 years. While other contractors rely on outdated, invasive, and faulty methods, such as mudjacking or grout pumping, we provide revolutionary solutions. This includes:

  • PolyLevel™ concrete lifting & leveling: Returns concrete slabs to level positions while reinforcing the load-bearing soil underneath. This process prevents continued soil settlement from cracking and sinking your concrete again.
  • NexusPro cracked concrete repair: An incredibly durable and long-lasting concrete sealant for cracked concrete repair. NexusPro is resistant to UV rays, stands up to harsh weather, installs all year round, and cures in as little as one hour.

Crawl space repair & vapor barrier system in Minneapolis, MN

As experts in all things crawl space, American Waterworks knows the ever-changing seasons, harsh weather, and fluctuating temperatures can spell disaster for the below-grade space. If the soil 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, humid air mixing with cold surfaces creates condensation and a breeding ground for mold. Updrafts then bring these spores into your living space, creating an unhealthy environment for your family.

If these problems sound familiar, American Waterworks are skilled experts with reliable crawl space repair and vapor barrier solutions. The Clean Space vapor barrier system covers the sub-floor area and walls, keeping moisture out and the area protected from outdoor elements. Along with a dehumidifier, sump pump, and thermal crawl space insulation, you can keep the below-grade space dry and secure. If you're worried about sagging floors, we also offer crawl space support posts to help restore and strengthen failing floor joists.

Job Stories From Minneapolis, MN
Cracked Wall Gets Addressed in Minneapolis, MN

A homeowner in Minneapolis, MN, was enjoying her basement when she made an alarming discovery-her basement wall was cracking! Wanting to address the issue sooner rather than later, she began to search for companies in her area that could help her with the project. She stumbled upon our website and decided to call in and claim her FREE, no-obligation estimateA few weeks later, our Design Specialist, Rick, was scheduled to head out to her home to complete his thorough inspection. Once Rick's walk-through was complete, he was ready to make recommendations as to how we could help. Rick suggested using our C-Channel and Geo-Lock Anchors to correct the problem. Rick explained that channel anchors are a versatile, effective system that can stabilize walls that are bowing, tipping, pushing in at the bottom, tilting in at the top, or showing similar signs of failure. They are installed with minimal disturbance to your lawn and landscaping, often in a day or less. The homeowner agreed with Rick's recommendation and the project was scheduled.

Our Foreman, Victor, and his team arrived at the job site a few weeks later and immediately got to work. First, the team looked at the interior wall and verified Rick's measurements. Next, they excavated holes outside, beyond the foundation, so the anchors had hard-packed virgin soil to anchor to. Next, the team drilled holes into the basement wall and ran a long steel pole through the hole to connect to the anchor outside. They then mounted the channel anchors and secured them to the floor to address the shearing of the wall. Finally, they tightened the anchors and backfilled the holes. Once the job was completed our homeowner was happy to know that her foundation concerns were a worry of the past!

Failing Garage Wall Saved in Minneapolis, MN

A homeowner from Minneapolis, MN was beginning to notice stair-step cracks running down the far side of his garage wall. As the crack began to grow, he got more and more worried as he knew that a failing wall would lead to structural integrity, compromising the safety and resale value of the home. Wanting to do diligent research, he began to search for companies that would help him fix the situation before it was too late. Once he came across our website, he knew we were the company for the job. He called into our office and we set him up with his FREE, no-obligation estimate.  A few weeks later our Design Specialist, Nick Skillman, headed out to the home to take a look and see what we could do. After his thorough inspection, Nick was ready to make his recommendation. Nick wanted to use our GeoLock C-Channel Anchors to fix the situation. He explained that our C-Channel and Geo-Lock anchors are designed to repair bowed, buckled, and tilting foundation walls. This proven repair technique is faster, less disruptive, and much more affordable than foundation wall replacement. The homeowner agreed and work began shortly after. 

Our Foreman, Kiko, and his crew showed up a few weeks after the estimate appointment. First, they began by measuring the proper distance for the anchors to be on the wall. Next, they excavated pieces of the yard beyond the foundation so the anchors had nicely compacted virgin soil to be anchored too. Then they drilled holes through the foundation, connecting the anchor plate on the exterior with the inside c-channel. Finally, they tightened the anchors and backfilled the excavated areas of the yard. In total, Kiko and his crew ended up installing 4 anchors along the problem wall. Once the job was completed, our customer was happy to know his foundation worries were in the past.

PolyLevel and GeoLock Saves Home in Fridley, MN

A homeowner in Fridley, MN, knew it was time to have repairs done on their home. Instead of ignoring the issue, the homeowner began searching for a company to repair and restore their home. Overwhelmed by all the options, the homeowner decided to ask their friends and family for any recommendations. The majority of them recommended us, American Waterworks. The homeowner visited our website and saw that we offer FREE estimates, so they decided to sign up for theirs. Once the appointment was set, the homeowner awaited the arrival of our Design Specialist, Jesse. When Jesse arrived, he began his analysis of the home. Jesse discovered that the foundation was struggling and the concrete needed repairs. After alerting the homeowner about the struggles, Jesse recommended the foundation be permanently stabilized and the concrete be lifted and leveled. Wanting to solve the issues, the homeowner agreed and production began. Our Foreman, Jordan, and his crew were assigned to complete the project. When they arrived, the crew started by installing the GeoLock anchors onto the west foundation wall. The GeoLock Wall Anchor system permanently stabilizes the foundation wall by anchoring your walls to the hard-packed untouched soil beyond your foundation. The crew installs the GeoLocks by digging a section of the ground to place the first GeoLock anchor. Once the GeoLock is in place, another anchor is attached to the interior wall. Both GeoLocks are connected by a small, steel pole direct through the ground. Once the GeoLocks are secured, the soil is put back on top of the ground. Once the GeoLocks were secured, the crew moved their attention to lifting and leveling the sidewalk in front of the home. The PolyLevel, a polyurethane foam injection solution, is inserted underneath the affected concrete. To install the PolyLevel, the crew strategically drills small 5/8" holes into the concrete slab. Next, the injection ports are installed in the small holes. Then, the polyurethane foam is injected beneath the concrete to fill voids and raise the slab. Finally, the holes and control joints are sealed. After the PolyLevel was successfully installed, the crew cleaned up their materials and left the home. The homeowner was excited to know their sidewalk and foundation were saved. If you are experiencing a similar issue, sign up for your FREE estimate today! 

Cracks Stabilized in Minneapolis, MN

A homeowner in Minneapolis, MN, was organizing their basement when they discovered a small horizontal crack growing along their foundation wall. Concerned by this discovery, the homeowner began looking for professional assistance. During their search, the same company kept getting brought up, American Waterworks. The homeowner's attention was caught, and they looked into the types of services we provide. After seeing all our wonderful reviews, the homeowner decided to call our Appointment Center and sign up for their FREE estimate. Once the appointment was set, we sent Nick, one of our Design Specialists, to investigate the foundation. Upon arrival, Nick greeted the homeowners and began his assessment. Following his assessment, Nick determined that the wall was showing early signs of failure due to improper soil fill. This is when the area around the home is not compacted properly. To stop the wall from further failure, the homeowner determined that the wall needed to be permanently stabilized. The homeowner knew this was their best option, so they agreed with the plan. Our Foreman, Jose, and his crew were assigned to complete the job. Once they arrived, they began by preparing the basement and lawn for the GeoLock installation. GeoLock is our wall anchoring system that permanently stabilizes foundation walls. First, the crew excavates a small amount of soil out of the ground, so the outside GeoLock anchor can be secured in place. Then, the crew attached the interior GeoLock anchor to the foundation wall. To connect the two anchors, the crew runs a small, steel pole through the soil.  After installing five GeoLocks on the west wall, the crew cleaned up their job site and left the home. The homeowners were relieved to know they caught this issue early enough. If you are experiencing a similar issue, sign up for your FREE estimate today! 

Transformed Crawl Space in Minneapolis, MN

A homeowner in Minneapolis, MN, was spending time with their family in their home when they noticed a strong pungent smell in their home. Unnerved by the smell, the homeowner began searching for a professional to provide them with some answers. Overwhelmed by all the options, the homeowner took their search to HomeAdvisor. While searching, the homeowner noticed our five-star rating and eye-catching reviews. That is all the homeowner needed and they called our Appointment Center to sign up for their FREE estimate. Once the appointment was set, the homeowner prepared for the arrival of our Design Specialist, Dylan. Once Dylan arrived, he began his detailed inspection of the basement to find the source of the smell. After completing the inspection, Dylan determined the odor was coming from the crawl space in the basement. After alerting the homeowner, Dylan proposed a plan that would solve all their issues. The homeowners agreed with Dylan's recommended plan, and project preparations began. Our Foreman, Victor, and his crew arrived at the home to begin the encapsulation process. To start, the crew began by clearing out all the debris and garbage in the crawl space. Once the crawl space was cleared, the crew was able to lay the Drainage Matting on the crawl space floor. The Drainage Matting gives the water flooding into your crawl space a channel underneath the crawl space liner. Next, the crew installed CleanSpace, a waterproof plastic vapor barrier, on the crawl space floors and walls. The crew mechanically attaches CleanSpace onto the crawl space floors and walls with plastic drilled-in fasteners to ensure they never fall off. Once the CleanSpace was mechanically attached, the crew installed Foamax onto the block walls and injected spray foam into the upper rim joists. The crew successfully encapsulated the entire crawl space. The homeowners were impressed with their crawl space transformation.

Uneven Driveway Repaired in Saint Anthony, MN

A homeowner in Saint Anthony, MN, was strolling into their home when they saw a substantial difference in their driveway slabs. Wanting to avoid further issues, the homeowners sought to have the driveway repaired. The homeowner wanted the best concrete repair service to complete the job, so they went to American Waterworks' website and signed up for their FREE estimate. After setting the appointment, our Design Specialist, Gary, traveled to the home to complete an evaluation. Following his detailed evaluation, Gary recommended the homeowners lift and level the patio, driveway apron, and four slabs below the apron. After hearing his recommendations, the homeowners agreed and project preparations began. 

 

Our Foreman, Troy, and his crew arrived at the home and immediately began work. To start, the crew used PolyLevel to lift the sunken concrete. PolyLevel is a polyurethane foam injection solution that is used to restore the appearance and safety of concrete without the mess and cost of replacement. To begin the installation, the crew strategically drills small 5/8" holes in the concrete slabs. Then, the injection ports are installed in those small holes. Next, the polyurethane foam is injected below the concrete to fill the voids and raise the concrete slab. Finally, the holes and control joints are sealed, leaving lifted concrete. After the driveway is lifted, the crew moves to filling all the joints with NexusPro. The NexusPro solution is a silicone-based sealant for joints and cracks that is formulated to provide long-lasting flexibility and stand up to harsh weather conditions. The crew installs the NexusPro by drilling, smoothing, and preparing the cracks with a non-absorbent backer rod filler. Then, the NexusPro is inserted in the prepared crack or control joint. Finally, the cracks are detailed with a thin layer of native sand, giving the concrete a finished appearance. The homeowners were happy with the crew's excellent job.

Radon Mitigation in Minneapolis, MN Home

Josh L. in Minneapolis, MN discovered the adverse effects that radon gas has on people's health and he became concerned because his home had not yet been tested. He started looking for a company to test his home, and he came across American Waterworks at a local home show. He was glad to see that along with concrete repair, basement waterproofing and foundation repair, we also offer radon testing and mitigation.

He gave us a call and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Shane Nephew, to his home to set up the test. 48 hours later, Shane returned to read the results. The results showed that Josh did in fact have unsafe levels of radon in his home. Shane explained the risks of not having a radon mitigation system  installed and he walked Josh through the installation process. Josh wanted to have the system installed as soon as possible, so they scheduled the project. 

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 installation took only one day to complete, and Josh is glad he took action to protect his and his family’s health.

Bowing Foundation Stabilized in Minneapolis, MN

Jacqueline M. in Minneapolis, MN had a bowing foundation wall in her basement. She was concerned about the pressure it was putting on her foundation, so she contacted American Waterworks to receive a FREE estimate. One of our Design Specialists, Shane Nephew, went to her home to inspect the wall and design a solution. After listening to her concerns and needs, he developed a plan to permanently restore her wall using PowerBraces. She was pleased with his proposal, so she decided to move forward with repairing her foundation.

Our Foreman, Juan Pena, and his crew installed 6 PowerBraces along the bowing wall. The PowerBrace is an adjustable beam that stabilizes bowing walls and forces them back into their original position. PowerBraces are sometimes used instead of wall anchors because wall anchors require access to the soil outside and would cause us to cross a property line if that product was installed. The beams are covered with a zinc-coating, so that the beams will not rust or deteriorate over time. Jacqueline was glad that the process was not very disruptive and that they barely take up any space in her basement. She has peace of mind knowing that American Waterworks helped her find a long-term solution for her home.
