Stephen S. in Rochester, MN found that his deck had started settling and putting pressure on their home. He was worried about the damage that it was causing to the structure of his home, so he contacted American Waterworks for a FREE estimate.

We sent one of our Design Specialists to his home to inspect the situation and to find a solution for him. We recommended installing a helical pier under each deck post to support the weight of the deck and raise it back to its original position. Stephen agreed that that was the best solution to his foundation problem, so we scheduled an installation as soon as possible. 

Our crew installed 3 helical piers to support the deck and relieve the stress that it was putting on their home. The project took a couple of days, but since our piers are backed with a lifetime warranty, Stephen will reap the benefits of this project for years to come. He is pleased with the work was done and he is glad that he made the investment to protect the foundation of their home.

Dennis T. in Rochester, MN had a dirt crawl space that was accumulating excess moisture and it was causing him to have a higher energy bill. Dennis had used our services before and had a great experience, so he knew he could trust our team to waterproof his crawl space. He contacted us to get a FREE estimate, so we sent one of our Design Specialists, Dustin Loftus, to his home to provide him with a solution.

Dennis was pleased with the proposal that Dustin developed to transform his crawl space, so he scheduled the installation.

One of our waterproofing experts, Juan Pena, and his crew installed drainage matting on the dirt crawl space floor, Foamax along the crawl space walls, and our CleanSpace barrier to seal off the space from dirt, excess moisture and pests. The Foamax walls insulate the space which makes the basement much warmer and saves Dennis money on his energy bill. Dennis is glad he chose a long-term solution to protect his home from the consequences that typically come with having a dirt crawl space.

Basement & Crawl Space Waterproofing in Olmsted County, MN

The best solution for a wet basement is to act quickly. The longer standing water remains in your basement, the more likely mold is to develop. Fortunately, American Waterworks is ready to make timely basement waterproofing repairs.

It's easy to see what the negatives of having a basement waterproofing problem are, but some homeowners might feel that they can deal with these issues rather than seek help. The truth is that not only can a wet, humid basement create more damage than you might expect, but a dry basement can also provide a lot of value to your home.

A waterproofed basement is easy to finish, and even if you aren't planning on finishing your basement, you'll still be able to use it for storage.

Signs of a subgrade water problem

  • Wet or damp basement floor or standing water
  • Leaking or damp basement walls or windows
  • Crystalline deposits on concrete surfaces
  • Musty odors, condensation, and humidity
  • Sump pump issues

American Waterworks is a part of the Basement Systems dealer network, with access to patented basement waterproofing products that have been used in thousands of homes across the nation. We install proven drainage systems, high-volume sump pumps, energy-efficient dehumidifiers, and much more. Basement Systems is continually developing new products to stay on the cutting-edge of the industry, and we benefit from their research and expertise!

For all of your basement waterproofing needs, American Waterworks has solutions that can help transform your basement and keep your home healthy, happy, and dry. Schedule a free estimate with us today!

Crawl space encapsulation can keep your home mold-free

Just like basements, water and moisture can infiltrate a crawl space and lead to mold and rot. And when crawl spaces have vents or are left totally open to the outside, other problems, like variable temperatures and critters, can start to take their toll on your home.

American Waterworks installs CleanSpace crawl space repair and encapsulation products to prevent crawl space mold and moisture. Using a crawl space vapor barrier, doors, and access wells to help seal the space, we'll keep your crawl space separate from the rest of the world. We also offer crawl space versions of our sump pumps, drainage matting, dehumidifiers, and insulation to make your crawl space dry and temperate.

Foundation repair and concrete leveling

Is your foundation showing signs of settlement or wear? Your foundation is not only the crucial basis from which the rest of your home gets its structural integrity, but it's also a major focus point when you go to sell your home - and if it's in bad shape, you'll have a hard time selling. In addition to our basement waterproofing expertise, American Waterworks is also a foundation repair expert with the tools and techniques needed to solve common foundation problems. These problems include:

  • Settlement and sinking
  • Bowing walls and wall cracks
  • Floor cracks and uneven floors
  • Sagging crawl spaces
  • Foundation heave
  • Sticking windows and doors
  • Collapsing retaining walls
  • Street creep repair
  • Tilting chimneys

American Waterworks makes use of foundation piers, wall anchors and reinforcement systems, crawl space support jacks, and many other products to prevent your foundation from getting worse. And oftentimes, these products will completely mitigate the initial signs of damage - your walls will straighten and cracks will become invisible. With the assistance of Foundation Supportworks, a foundation repair dealer network, we know we can restore value to your home.

When concrete slab settlement is the brunt of your concern, we can help with concrete lifting and leveling services. PolyLevel is an award-winning concrete leveling technique, and it is vastly superior to traditional methods like slab jacking. It uses a lightweight, environmentally-friendly foam to lift and level any concrete slab, without causing long-term harm to your property.

American Waterworks is proud of the caliber of basement waterproofing, foundation repair, concrete leveling, and crawl space repair services we sell, and we hope to have the opportunity to work on your home. We offer free estimates in Olmsted County, MN - schedule yours today!

Job Stories From Olmsted County, MN
Byron, MN Basement Waterproofing

Kay had called American Waterworks and explained that water had been a problem for many years. They had attempted to fix the problem with a sump pump and drain tile, yet they still were taking on water in the spring. After a free onsite inspection with American Waterworks, the customer proceeded with a full perimeter waterproofing system. The patented WaterGuard system and TripleSafe were installed to completely solve the water problems. The basement was finally dry and protected by a lifetime transferable warranty.

Stewartville, MN Concrete Lifting

Dave P. was experiencing sinking concrete on his driveway and back patio. Both locations of the sinking concrete presented trip hazards, and the back patio was allowing water to pitch towards the house. American Waterworks solved the problem by drilling penny sized holes through the concrete and injecting PolyLevel, a two part polyurethane foam designed to lift and level the concrete. The project took less than one day and the concrete was back to the original position. The driveway could be driven on immediately, and the patio pitched water away from the foundation. 

Wet Basement in Eyota, MN

John R. in Eyota, MN was experiencing water seeping into his basement. Water was pooling on the floor and it had started to cause damage to his property. He knew that if he left this issue alone, he would be in the same position when the next heavy rain came.

He contacted American Waterworks to see how we could help protect his basement. We sent a Design Specialist to his home to give a FREE onsite inspection. Our Design Specialist developed a full basement waterproofing plan that would be a permanent solution for John.

John decided that having his basement fully waterproofed was the best option for him, so we scheduled an installation. Our crew installed a full perimeter of WaterGuard, a TripleSafe sump pump and a discharge line to the outside of his home so the water seeping into his basement can be properly discharged from the home. He has peace of mind that his basement is protected from water for a lifetime. 

Wet Basement Restored in Oronoco, MN

Lynn K. in Oronoco, MN had water seeping into her garage and her basement. Her home began to smell musty, and she was worried that the moisture was affecting her air quality and damaging her home. She decided it was time to call the waterproofing experts at American Waterworks to take a look at her situation. We sent our Design Specialist, Jeremy Radtke, to her home to design a solution for her and give her a free estimate. Jeremy listened to her questions and addressed her concerns. He was able to develop a unique and thorough plan that was the most beneficial for her and her home. She was pleased with Jeremy's proposal, so she scheduled the installation.

Our production team installed a full perimeter of WaterGuard in her basement and a partial perimeter in her garage. Next, they installed our TripleSafe sump pump, which has three layers of protection, so she doesn't have to worry about it failing. The WaterGuard drainage system properly guides water to the sump pump. From there, the sump pump pushes the water through the discharge line and expels it from the home. Our top of the line waterproofing system is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Lynn now has peace of mind that her basement is permanently protected. She is glad she invested in protecting one of her most important assets. 

Cracked Foundation Wall in Oronoco, MN

Shannon G. in Oronoco, MN had a large crack in the foundation wall on the back of her garage. She knew that she would be taking a large risk if she chose to wait to repair her foundation, because it could fail at any time, and become a much larger expense. She started researching foundation repair companies when she saw an advertisement for American Waterworks. She decided to call us for a free estimate, so we sent one of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, to her home to inspect her foundation problem and find a solution. Rick talked her through her options and he developed a plan that was the most beneficial for her and her home. After meeting with Rick and getting her questions and concerns addressed, she felt that we were the best fit for her, so she scheduled a date for the installation.

Our crew installed 4 wall anchors from the outside of her garage into the soil underneath the concrete in the garage. They drilled long rods through the brick until they hit supportive soil. They removed the concrete in the garage where they would need to put on the plates for the anchors. They installed the plates on either end of the rod and tightened the anchors. Lastly, they replaced the concrete and cleaned up their work area. The anchors secure and stabilize the wall. They continue to straighten the walls and can be tightened over time as the wall gradually moves back into place. Our foundation repair systems are guaranteed for a lifetime, so Shannon can rest easy knowing she chose a permanent solution to protect the foundation of her home.

Rochester, MN Home with Large Crack in Exterior Brick Wall

Eric O. in Rochester, MN had a sunken porch that caused a large crack in the brick on the front of his home. Although it wasn’t hindering his foundation yet, it wasn’t aesthetically pleasing, and it bothered him that his porch was uneven. He discovered American Waterworks and was interested to learn more about our concrete repair, so he called us for a free estimate and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Don Mancilman, to his home to assess the situation and find a solution.
