Job Stories From Winneshiek County, IA
Damaged Garage Wall in Ossian, IA

Bridget C. in Ossian, IA was trying to sell her home that she had lived in for 25 years. The buyer was concerned about a cracked wall in the garage and wanted to have it inspected. Bridget’s realtor got her in touch with American Waterworks to help with her foundation problem. One of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, went onsite to give her a FREE inspection and design a solution. Rick recommended that she have us install PowerBraces along the damaged wall to permanently stabilize it.

Cracked Foundation Repaired at Movie Theater in Decorah, IA

A movie theater in Decorah, IA noticed that they had a crack in their foundation. They got in touch with a local engineer, and the engineer recommended that they contact American Waterworks. Brad R. contacted us to receive a FREE estimate, so we sent out our Commercial Sales Specialist, Tom Webbles, to inspect their foundation and design a solution. Tom recommended that we install piers to lift the foundation and transfer its weight to the pier instead of the soil. Brad liked the proposal that Tom put together, so he decided to move forward with the installation.

Our production crew started the installation process by removing the concrete and soil where they needed to install the piers. They drilled seven helical piers deep into the soil underneath the foundation of the movie theater. Once the piers reached stable soil, the foundation was raised and there was no longer a crack. They also sealed the cracks with concrete to ensure that water could not seep through. Our foundation repair solutions are guaranteed for a lifetime, so Brad is confident that he chose the right solution to protect the movie theater for the long-term.

Damaged Basement Revived in Ossian, IA

A homeowner in Ossian, IA was concerned about his basement space when he had recently been in the space and noticed a large amount of water had made its way into the basement. He didn't know what to do next, but knew it was most likely better to take action than let it sit and cause further damage. When he went online to find basement waterproofing solutions, he found the American Waterworks name. He became interested in our FREE no-obligation estimate services and signed up for his own. When we received his request, we sent over Design Specialist Dustin Amenda to take a closer look at the areas of concern and give his expert recommendations. Dustin informed the homeowner that in order to stop the water intake and prevent future water-related issues in the basement, a new sump pump and drainage system should be installed. The homeowner trusted Dustin's judgment and agreed to the suggested products and plan. When our Foreman, Jeremiah Fischer, and his crew arrived at the site, they began the project by jackhammering channels along the perimeter of the basement. Next, they filled the channels with drainage stone, our WaterGuard drain system, and more clean stone. They also installed a new SuperSump Plus pump and a feed line was connected from the drain system to the pump so the incoming water would be safely taken up and out of the home. To finish the project, the crew layered concrete around the areas to keep the newly installed products in place and protect them. The homeowner was glad to have a water-free basement back and relieved that he didn't let the problem get worse.
