Marsha Z. in Stillwater, WI was experiencing moisture and humidity in her crawl space. She was concerned about how it could impact her air quality and she was frustrated that she was losing heat through that space. She contacted American Waterworks and we sent our Design Specialist, Shane Nephew, to her home to do a free onsite evaluation. He confirmed that her concerns were valid, answered her questions, and developed a plan to install a barrier to separate her crawl space from the earth.

The installation of these waterproofing products was a quick and non-invasive process. Marsha now has peace of mind that her air quality to improved and that her crawl space is permanently sealed.
Stephen W. in Forest Lake, MN had water seeping into his basement and he did not have a sufficient sump pump to discharge the water from the home. He decided to contact us for a free estimate and see how we could help. We sent a Design Specialist to his home to inspect the situation and to develop a solution. Our Design Specialist determined that the best way to ensure that Stephen would never have to worry about a wet basement would be to install WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement and a SuperSump sump pump to properly expel the water to the outside. Stephen agreed that this was the right plan for his basement, so we sent a crew there to install our system.
Our crew removed the concrete around the perimeter of the basement and laid the WaterGuard drainage system which led to the new sump pump that they installed. Then, they installed the discharge line from the sump pump to outside of the home, which is where the water drains to. The installation took a couple of days, but Steven will reap the benefits of this system for a lifetime. Since the installation, he has had a dry, clean basement. Our waterproofing system is backed by a lifetime warranty, so Stephen can rest easy knowing he invested in permanently protecting his home from water seeping into his home and causing damage.
Zach W. was frustrated that his back patio had sunk a few inches after the change of season. He was hoping he could find an affordable solution to raise his concrete instead of replacing it altogether. While researching concrete repair contractors, he found American Waterworks and was interested in learning more about our PolyLevel concrete repair solution. He gave us a call and set up a time for one our Design Specialists to come to his home and give him a FREE estimate.
Our Design Specialist assured him that we could raise and level his concrete back to where it was in a cost-effective and non-invasive manner. Zach was pleased to hear this, so he set an appointment for the PolyLevel injection. Our PolyLevel experts drilled penny-sized holes into the concrete slab to inject the foam. The foam only takes 30 minutes to cure once it has been injected, so Zach was able to see the transformation almost immediately. The entire process took about 2 hours to complete. Zach is pleased that he found a more affordable and durable concrete repair option through American Waterworks.
John B. in Afton, MN noticed that his concrete walkway had settled a few inches, creating a large step down from the door. He wanted to find an effective and affordable way to repair his concrete instead of having to replace it.
He found American Waterworks and was interested in the PolyLevel concrete repair solution that we offer. He wanted to learn more, so he gave us a call and we sent one of our Design Specialists, Kevin McWithey, to his home to provide him with a FREE onsite estimate. John was pleased to learn that our PolyLevel foam injection is a more affordable, non-invasive and durable alternative to traditional concrete repair.
Our PolyLevel experts drilled small holes into the concrete slabs where the foam would be injected. Then, the foam was injected until it was raised back to its original height. The cracks in the concrete were sealed with our Nexus Pro sealant and the process was complete. John was able to see the transformation almost immediately because once the foam is injected it takes only 30 minutes to cure. John was glad he chose do go with the PolyLevel repair option provided by American Waterworks.
David H. in Hugo, MN realized that his basement had started to sink, and the corner of their new addition they added to their home was also starting to sink. A friend recommended that he give American Waterworks a call because they had a good experience with us in the past. David decided to contact us for a free estimate, so we sent one of our Design Specialists, Jeremy Radtke, to his home to evaluate the situation and provide a solution. Jeremy explained that the best solution to permanently repair their foundation would be to install helical piers, which would support the foundation of the home. David knew that if he decided to wait and the foundation failed, it would be a very expensive fix, so he decided that he wanted to invest in the long-term protection of his home.
Our production team began the installation process by digging down to the foundation of the home. They installed 4 helical piers under the foundation of the basement, which transfers the weight of the home from the unstable soil, to the pier. They also installed 3 piers under the newly added deck which had recently started to sink. David’s home was starting to sink because the soil it was built on was not supportive enough, but his foundation is now permanently supported because of the installation of our piers. Our piers are guaranteed for a lifetime, so David will never again have to worry about his foundation failing.
Gregg P. in Marine on Saint Croix, MN was suffering from large amounts of water pouring into his basement during heavy rains. He did not have an existing waterproofing system in place, so his basement had no protection from the water leaking in. He began looking for a waterproofing contractor and he found American Waterworks’ website. He was pleased to see that we have almost 30 years of experience with waterproofing, so he called us to set up a FREE estimate. One of our Design Specialists, Shane Nephew, went to his home to inspect his basement and design a solution. Gregg was please with Shane’s solution, so he scheduled the installation.
Our production team installed a section of our WaterGuard drainage system, a SuperSump sump pump and our CleanSpace vapor barrier system over the area where water was leaking in.

The CleanSpace acts as a barrier to protect from moisture and potential mold growth. Gregg’s basement is now a dry and healthier space. He is glad he invested in protecting his most valuable asset.

Our customer, Amy, from Lake Elmo, MN, reached out to us when she had enough of cracks forming on her garage concrete slab floor. Amy was afraid that if she didn't fix the issue soon, the cracks would get worse and create a much larger problem down the road. When Amy called in, we were able to set her up with our FREE estimate. A Design Specialist from our Concrete and Radon division was able to go out to the property and do a thorough inspection to see what we could do to help Amy. When he had finished, he recommended that Amy invest in our lifting and leveling option for her concrete. He suggested she do so fairly soon before the issue had a chance to get any worse. Amy agreed and our Foreman, Troy, and his crew were on the scene shortly after. The crew began the process by strategically drilling holes into the concrete slab that they then filled with our PolyLevel injection, an expanding polyurethane foam that fills the gaps caused by soil erosion to raise and stabilize concrete surfaces. The crew kept a close eye on the slab as the foam expanded, reaching the appropriate height. After the PolyLevel stage was finished, Troy and his crew finished the job by sealing any remaining holes or joints with our NexusPro solution, a silicone-based sealant specially formulated to provide long-lasting flexibility and stand up to harsh weather conditions.
When the job was complete, Amy was happy with the work we had done and was relieved to know that her cracked concrete issues were worries of the past.
Robert and Teresa from Saint Paul Park, MN, gave us a call when they began to notice that their kitchen floors were becoming increasingly uneven. They feared that the issue was structural in nature, so they contacted us to see what could be done. When they called in, we set them up with our FREE estimate, and we sent our Design Specialist, Shane, who was able to get out to the property to do a thorough inspection. When he finished his walk-through, he informed the homeowners that the issues were stemming from their basement foundation. Shane recommended that they invest in our SmartJack system, which provides support for sagging beams, restoring stability and straightness. These I-shaped beams have the option to be tightened over time, making them the ideal solution for uneven floors. Our Foreman, Tremaine and his crew ended up installing 7 SmartJacks throughout the basement of the home, strategically placing them below the stairs and in the areas of the basement where the sloping ceilings were the worst.
Once the job was done, both Robert and Teresa were pleased with the work we had done and were happy knowing that their new system had the option to be tightened over time, giving them peace of mind for a long time to come.
A customer from Forest Lake, MN, gave us a call when he began to notice that his front porch steps were beginning to sink into the soil beneath the home. When he called in, we set him up with our FREE estimate, and our Design Specialist, Brian, headed out to the property to do a thorough inspection of the issue and make recommendations about how we could best help him. Brian recommended our Lift and Level option for this project. The customer agreed and work began shortly after. Our Foreman, Jose, and his crew began by strategically drilling holes into the stairs of the property, and then injected our PolyLevel foam into the holes and monitored the lifting process. Our PolyLevel solution is an expanding polyurethane foam that, when injected below a concrete slab, fills the gaps caused by soil erosion and is used to raise and stabilize concrete surfaces. Along with this solution, the crew installed two of our Helical Piers under the stoops to provide extra straightening and stability. Our helical piers are the best solution for lifting lighter loads and the installation is fast, effective, and have a great deal of versatility for stabilizing and restoring foundations and masonry elements alike. When the job was completed our customer was satisfied with the work we had done and was happy to know he didn't have to worry about his steps sinking any further.

Matt and Christine, of Stillwater, MN, got in contact with us when they began to notice the concrete slabs of their front patio were sinking, causing water to drain towards the foundation. They were afraid if they didn't look into fixing the issue, they would face water damage in their home or an increased risk of a tripping hazard due to the uneven concrete. When they called in, we set them up with one of our FREE estimates with one of our Design Specialists, Chuck. Once Chuck arrived at the property, he did a three-hour thorough inspection into the issue and in the end, made his recommendations as to how we could help the couple. Chuck recommended that they let us lift the concrete using our PolyLevel injection, and finish off the project by sealing the project in with our NexusPro solution. Chuck went on to explain that our PolyLevel is an expanding polyurethane foam that is injected beneath the concrete slab to fill the gaps caused by soil erosion and raises and stabilizes the concrete surface. The process for this injection is fairly quick and non-invasive for the homeowner. The slabs in question can be ready to use in 15 minutes from the time the solution is injected. Chuck also explained that our NexusPro is a silicone-based sealant for joints and cracks and is specially formulated to provide long-lasting flexibility and stand up to harsh weather conditions. Unlike traditional sealants, NexusPro resists UV rays, meaning it won't crack, bubble, or dry out which translates into a long-lasting seal on your concrete. The couple agreed to the work and renovations began shortly after.
Our Foreman Tyler and his crew began the process by strategically drilling holes into the problem slabs. Next, they injected the foam into the holes and closely monitored the raising process to ensure that the slabs got back to their original position. Once the slabs got back into place, they finished the project by applying our NexusPro solution to the joints, the space between the home's foundation and the concrete, and the cracks that had formed on the slabs of concrete to ensure that no water would get under the slabs.
Once the job had been completed, the homeowners were happy to see that the level concrete would keep water away from the home.

Camy M. from Saint Paul, Mn started to see that the concrete slabs from her driveway started to settle and began to crack. Camy felt as if it was left unchecked it might worsen over time causing potential hazards. Camy then contacted the Appointment Center here at American Waterworks to claim her FREE estimate, which entitles her to a free home inspection by one of our Design Specialists. Once scheduled and the thorough home inspection is completed, our Design Specialist proposed to Camy that the best solution would be to invest in our PolyLevel solution along with our NexusPro solution. The PolyLevel injection is a polyurethane foam that is injected beneath the concrete to fill the voids that are caused by soil erosion and help stabilize the concrete slabs. Camy agreed and scheduled the date of installation.
Our Foreman and his Production crew then arrived at the property by strategically drilling holes in the problem slabs and then injecting the PolyLevel foam. After this process is done, the crew followed by using our NexusPro solution, a silicone-based sealant that seals the joints and cracks to protect the PolyLevel foam from water and water vapor. The NexusPro solution is a solution that has a protectant against UV light which prevents it from drying and deteriorating, protecting the PolyLevel at the maximum capacity.
Camy loved how her driveway looked good as new and was satisfied with the project!!
