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.

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 Rochester, 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, 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®, NexusPro, and SealantPro

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.

American Waterworks also offers NexusPro and SealantPro for a comprehensive solution for damaged concrete.  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!

Job Stories From Rochester, MN
Lifted Sidewalk in Rochester, MN

In Rochester, MN a homeowner was unhappy with the look of his front sidewalk, as the concrete slabs had spread out and increased the joint spaces in between them. Wanting to make a change earlier in the summer rather than later, he began his search for a concrete repair company. The American Waterworks page showed up during his search and he was slightly familiar with the name from living in Rochester. Finding out we offered FREE estimates, he signed up for one and looked forward to speaking more with an expert. When Design Specialist Mike Dexter arrived at the home, he carried out a detailed inspection and talked things over with the homeowner. Mike determined that the best solution for the homeowner's concerns was to lift, level, and seal the sidewalk areas. The homeowner was eager to move forward with the process and agreed to the installation plans. When the day came for the installations, Foreman Reese Rinken and his crew arrived at the site and began the project by drilling small holes through the concrete. Next, they inserted ports through the holes to reach the empty space below and injected the PolyLevel to fill in the void and immediately raise the sinking concrete slabs. Next, they filled the voids along with the empty joints in between the slabs with the NexusPro sealant, which resists UV rays, meaning it won't ever crack, bubble, or dry out. To finish the project, the crew placed a layer of native sand on top of the sealant for a pleasing final look to the sidewalk. The homeowner was thrilled with the results and thankful for our American Waterworks team members that made the results possible.

Uneven Driveway Restored in Rochester, MN

A homeowner in Rochester, MN had dealt with minor cracks and an uneven driveway for a few years. During the winter months when snow had covered the surface, she would have to shovel, and it would get caught on the extreme cracks, making the process difficult and inefficient. Now that it was summer, she was worried about the worsened cracked areas being a tripping hazard for her and others who visited the home. She decided to look into concrete repairing companies that had helped out others in the Rochester area and found the American Waterworks website. She scheduled one of our FREE no-obligation estimates and awaited the arrival of one of our Design Specialists, Mike Dexter. When Mike made a visit to the site, he talked over the homeowner's concerns and informed her of two of our products that could help repair the driveway. She agreed to the plans and was happy to have an answer to her concrete problems. We sent over Foreman Ryan Trogstad and his crew to install the products and get the driveway back to perfect condition. They first started the process by drilling small holes throughout the driveway and inserted ports to connect to the space below the slabs. Next, they filled the PolyLevel, a high-density polyurethane foam, through the ports to fill the space and lift the slabs back up. Next, the holes, cracks, and joints in between slabs were filled and sealed with NexusPro. This is a flexible and durable sealant for damaged concrete. Finally, they sprinkled native sand on top of the sealant to make a pleasing look to the driveway and finish the job. The homeowner was so happy with the work we did and that she had a smooth driveway again.

Concrete Lift, Level and Seal in Lakeville, MN

Marilyn and Dale from Lakeville, Mn noticed the concrete slabs that are at the entrance of their garage were uneven and started to create a potential tripping hazard. Marilyn and Dale were afraid that if left unchecked the issue may worsen over time. They then contacted the Appointment Center here at American Waterworks to claim their FREE estimate, which entitles them to a free home inspection by our Design Specialist. Once the appointment was set, Kyle Peters, our Design Specialist then attended their home and proceeded to conduct a thorough home inspection to obtain a proper diagnosis of the issue and provide a solution that is best suited for the home. After the inspection was complete, Kyle then proposed to Marilyn and Dale that the best solution is to invest in our PolyLevel and NexusPro Solution. They agreed and proceeded to schedule a date of installation. 


Our Foreman, Ben Koehler, and his crew then proceeded with the project strategically drilling holes in the problem slabs and injecting the PolyLevel solution. The PolyLevel solution is a polyurethane foam that is injected underneath the concrete slabs filling the voids that were left by soil erosion and stabilizing the concrete slab. Once set and done the crew proceeds to apply the NexusPro Solution to the cracks and joints of the concrete slabs. The NexusPro Solution is a silicone-based solution that seals the joints and cracks and protects the PolyLevel for water and water vapor. The NexusPro Solution is also a tough solution that has a protectant against UV light to prevent the seal from drying and cracking.  

Marilyn and Dale were happy with the finished project and pleased to have a nice leveled driveway!

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.
