Paul and Helen T. of Dalton, MN had water leaking in through the cracks of their basement causing damage to their belongings. American Waterworks did work for them in the past, so they scheduled a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Tom Ringeisen. After a thorough inspection, Paul and Helen were comfortable with Tom's proposal, so they went ahead with the project.
Our Foreman, Jesus Covarrubias, and his production team began the project by breaking out 66 feet of the concrete floor to form a trench and 26 feet down the middle to form a feed line. In the trench, our crew installed our WaterGuard, which is a waterproofing product that prevents water clogs and acts as an underground drain. Next, our crew installed our TripleSafe Sump Pump in connection to the WaterGuard and feed line. Our TripleSafe is the best sump pump in the industry and provides triple the protection. To complete the installation, our crew filled the open gaps with rock and replaced the concrete. Paul and Helen had a great experience from appointment to installation!
Bob M. of Fergus Falls, MN had cracked foundation walls in his basement, making him feel nervous about the structural build of his home. He went online and came across our website. After looking through our foundation repair products, Bob called our office staff and scheduled a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Chad Johnson. Chad went to Bob's house to inspect his problem and come up with a solution. Chad proposed our GeoLock Wall Anchor System. Bob was confident with the proposal and got all of his questions answered, so he went ahead with the project.
Our Foreman, Brian Colliton, and his production team began the project by digging five holes outside of the home and inserting a long, medal rod from the inside foundation to each hole outside. At the ends of each rod, our team tightened and screwed on a GeoLock Wall Anchor. The wall anchor system permanently stabilizes the foundation wall by anchoring the wall to the hard-packed, compact soil beyond the foundation. To complete the installation, Brian and his team backfilled each hole, replaced the soil, and made sure the yard looked cleaner than when they found it. Bob was very satisfied with the project and no longer has to worry about the structural build of his home!
Niki B. of Battle Lake, MN had water leaking from their foundation walls, causing them to worry about their interior drainage. They called American Waterworks and set up a FREE Estimate with our Design Specialist, Ian Schultz. Ian went to their home, inspected their water leakage problem, and came up with a solution that worked for them. They approved of the solution and got all of their questions answered, so they went ahead with the repairs.
Our Foreman, Ryan Loe, and his production team began the project by breaking out a few centimeters of the bottom perimeter of the foundation wall. The reason behind this was to make sure our DryTrak Drain Pipe System would work. Next, our team installed our DryTrak around the basement floor perimeter. There are advantages of this system including not having to use a jackhammer so there will not be as much work to be done or dust flying around, the drain stays above the "mud zone" to prevent any clogging, and it collects water from the walls and floor joints. The project only took a few hours and Niki was happy with the end result!

Jim and Cindy of Henning, MN were beginning to notice water entering their basement, resulting in damage to the drywall and carpet in the space. They were frustrated with the situation and wanted to get ahead of it before it could do any more expensive damage. They began to do research about companies in the area that provided waterproofing solutions and they came across our company. When they called our office we set them up with our FREE estimates, entitling them to a thorough, no-obligation inspection by a member of our Design Specialists team. A few weeks later, our Design Specialist, Ian, headed out to the property to complete his walkthrough and make recommendations as to how we could help. Once he completed his inspection, he recommended the use of a few of our products to correct the water issue. First, Ian suggested the use of our WaterGuard drainage system. He explained that our WaterGuard is an award-winning system that sits just below the floor or the space, but on top of the foundation footing and out of the mud zone where other drains tend to clog. Ian went on to say that this system works to collect water entering through holes and cracks in the foundation, and works to redirect the water to the appropriate disposal site. Ian's second suggestion, and suggested disposal site, was our TripleSafe sump system. Ian informed Jim and Cindy that our TripleSafe is the most reliable sump system, providing three levels of protection for basements. He went on to say that the TripleSafe has a powerful, cast-iron Zoeller® ⅓ horsepower sump pump set at the lowest level. For heavy volumes of water or in case of primary pump failure, a second, more powerful Zoeller® ½ hp pump set a bit higher in the liner will take over. Jim and Cindy agreed with Ian's recommendations and work began shortly after.
Our Foreman for the project, Zach, and his crew work diligently to install 72 ft of our WaterGuard throughout the basement and placed 1 TripleSafe sump. When the work was completed, Jim and Cindy were thrilled to know that their basement waterproofing issues were a worry of the past.

Paul from Elizabeth, MN was beginning to notice that his floor was showing signs of sloping. Paul knew that the space below could potentially be to blame and wanted to get ahead of the issue before it had the chance to worsen over time. After doing some research he came across our website and decided to give us a call. We set Paul up with our FREE estimate, entitling him to a free, no-obligation estimate into the root of the issue. A few weeks later our Design Specialist, Evan N, headed out to the property to complete his walkthrough. Upon inspection, Evan found that Paul's assumptions were correct. The beams below the sloping floor were showing signs of bowing, resulting in the uneven floor above. Once Evan had diagnosed the issue, he was ready to make his recommendations. Evan wanted to use our SmartJack support system to address the bowing. He explained that the SmartJack is comprised of steel beams used to provide solid support for sagging and undersized beams, restoring stability and straightness to sagging floor Once installed in your crawl space, SmartJack support posts can correct problems such as sloping and overly springy floors, interior wall cracks, and out-of-level door frames. Because of its design, the SmartJack can be adjusted over time to provide additional straightening and leveling action if necessary. Paul agreed with the recommendation and work began shortly after.
Our Foreman, Zach, and his team worked hard to install the beams in the basement of the home. When they completed the project they had installed 2 of our SmartJacks and a supplemental beam. Now Paul can enjoy his space without worrying about uneven floors! If you're experiencing a similar issue to Paul, click HERE to claim your FREE estimate now.
