Charles W. in Saint James, MN had large, stair-step like cracks in three of his basement walls. He noticed they had started to bow inwards, so he decided it would be a good idea to have a professional look at it. A friend of his had a good experience with American Waterworks so he recommended that Charles contact us to repair his foundation. Charles called us for a free estimate, so we sent one of our Design Specialists, Jeremy Radtke, to his home to inspect the situation and find a solution for him. Charles was pleased with the thorough plan that Jeremy developed, and he felt that we were a good fit for him, so he scheduled the installation.

Our Foreman, Jesus Covarrubias, and his crew strategically placed seventeen Geo-Lock wall anchors along the three bowing walls. The anchors are placed in the ground outside of the home and drilled into the basement walls. Then, the plates are screwed on and tightened. Once the plates are tightened, the walls straighten and stabilize. Charles can rest easy knowing he chose a permanent solution to secure his foundation because our anchors are backed by a lifetime warranty.

A customer from Saint James, MN got in contact with us when he had enough of unwanted water and moisture finding its way into his basement. He feared that if he left the issue unresolved, he could run the risk of developing mold and bacteria or damaging the structural integrity of the home. When he called our Appointment Center, we got him scheduled with our FREE estimate; a thorough inspection of the issue by one of our Design Specialists. When our Design Specialist stopped at the house, he completed his walk-through and made recommendations as to how we could remedy the issue. He began by informing the homeowner that water was entering the basement through cracks and porous holes in the wall. He said we could fix this issue by installing our CleanSpace vapor barrier along with our WaterGuard drainage system. He explained to the homeowner that the CleanSpace is a tarp-like material that gets tacked to the wall. It works to catch any water entering the home through the wall, directing it downwards. He went on to say that this is where the WaterGuard comes into play. This drainage system lies beneath the concrete of the floor and catches water dripping down the wall, directing it to the appropriate disposal site. The customer agreed with our recommendations and work began shortly after. 

Our construction crew, led by Foreman Lane, ended up installing 100 ft of both the CleanSpace and WaterGuard throughout the basement of the home. When the job was completed, our customer was happy to know that no more unwanted water would find its way into his basement!

Job Stories From Saint James, MN
WaterGuard Installation for Wet Basement in Saint James, MN

Bob K. in Saint James, MN had water leaking into his basement. It had started to damage his property and it was creating an unhealthy living space. He decided it was time to find a professional waterproofing contractor. A friend recommended American Waterworks, so he gave us a call and set up a time for a FREE estimate.

One of our Design Specialists when to his home and evaluated the situation. Our Design Specialist laid out numerous options for Bob, and he decided he wanted to have our WaterGuard drainage system installed along two walls that drain to a new sump pump. 

The installation of the WaterGuard and the SuperSump sump pump took about a full day to complete. Bob's basement is now protected from water seeping into his basement from those two walls. He also now has a sufficient sump pump to discharge the water from the home. Bob's peace of mind has now been restored because he no longer has to be concerned about water entering that area of him home.
