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.

The Foamax walls insulate the space which makes the basement much warmer and saves Dennis money on his energy bill.

Rochester, MN Basement Waterproofing, Foundation repair, and Crawl Space Repair

Water that makes its way into a basement or crawlspace can cause significant damage to Rochester, MN homes. The most common way for water to get into these spaces is by seeping through cracks found in the foundation of a building. Water can even work its way up into a home through openings made for pipes and vents.

Moisture promotes mold growth, and mold is known to cause serious health issues for occupants of a home. Water damage to furniture and flooring can be costly to repair, so it is recommended that Rochester, MN residents be proactive about protecting their homes from water by opting for basement waterproofing services.

Homeowners who are already facing the damage caused by water, settling soils, and other issues can also contact American Waterworks for foundation and crawl space repair services.

Dry out your basement with confidence

While your basement is lined with concrete to help keep moisture out, the soil that is directly below and around your basement contains water that can seep into your home through cracks in the floor and walls.

Many city_page:city_name], MN contractors utilize methods that only work temporarily or come with a high cost. Some of these methods include:

  • Excavation: This method requires the use of a backhoe and involves scooping out the moist soil located around a home. A drainage system is then installed to reduce moisture around the basement. This is a costly, time-consuming method.
  • Interior Drainage: The basement floor needs to be removed for this system to be put in place. Flooring is then relaid on top of the drainage system. A major problem associated with interior drainage is the fact that it can become clogged.
  • Interior Sealants: While this method involves lower costs, exposure to moisture can cause sealants to break down over time.

American Waterworks provides basement waterproofing services to clients in the Rochester, MN area. We use the WaterGuard System to provide exceptional results when it comes to keeping moisture out of your home. This proven system has been developed by the Basement Systems network. 

We also install a wide variety of other Basement Systems products, including sump pumps, dehumidifiers, basement wall options, water heater flood rings, and much, much more! No matter what water problem you're facing, we have the appropriate basement waterproofing solution.

Concrete lifting and leveling using PolyLevel

A weak soil base is a common cause of soil erosion in Rochester, MN made worse with changing seasons.  As the soil shifts, so does any concrete above it, creating uneven, cracked driveways, sidewalks, and concrete paths around your home.

While several common methods, such as slab jacking, slab leveling, concrete lifting, and grout pumping may delay further damage, American Waterworks implements the PolyLEVEL system to ensure that damage is reversed and prevented in the future. PolyLEVEL works by injecting two fluids into the ground that mix together inside every crevice and void under the affected areas then expand into a high-density foam, binding together any lose ground and raising damaged surfaces to their proper places.

Basement Waterproofing System Installed in Rochester, MN

Jennifer E. in Rochester, MN had water leaking into her basement.

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. Don was able to design a plan to raise his stoop which would in turn close the gap in the brick wall. Eric liked Don’s proposal, so they set a date for the concrete to be repaired.

One of our concrete repair experts, Brandon Wiskow, drilled small holes into his porch to inject the PolyLevel foam. Next, he injected the foam until the slab was raised and leveled, which closed the crack in the brick wall. PolyLevel is a faster, durable and more affordable alternative to traditional concrete repair. The process is non-invasive and only took a couple of hours to complete. Eric is glad he found a concrete repair solution that was the right fit for him. He is glad he will now be able to enjoy a raised and level stoop for years to come.

in Rochester
We have been having foundation (concrete block) issues with the foundation wall adjacent to our driveway. The concrete slab is settling and pushing against the foundation wall which caused it to lean in. Last summer we had anchors installed to keep the wall in place. When the anchors were tightened, it pulled the section of wall in below the concrete slab out to level while leaving the top two courses (which run up against the concrete slab) in place resulting in the top two courses being offset by an inch or so from the wall below. One of the concerns is that the our circuit box is along this wall. I am concerned if the concrete slab continues to push the top two courses in, a larger gap will be created and water will leak in behind the circuit box. We are interested in what options there are for evening the block courses and fixing the concrete slab so it no longer pushes against the wall.
