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. Bridget and the buyer agreed to have the project completed, so they scheduled the installation.

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.

Wet Basement Gets Waterproofed in Ridgeway, IA

Todd Teslow in Ridgeway, IA had water seeping into his basement between the cracks where the wall met the floor. He was left with a mess after each heavy rainfall and he decided that he needed to call American Waterworks. He had previously met one of our Design Specialists at a local home show and was impressed with our company, so he scheduled a free estimate. Our Design Specialist, Mac Cole, created a well thought out plan to waterproof his basement with WaterGuard and a TripleSafe sump pump.

Our crew started the installation by removing the concrete around the perimeter of the basement floor and laying our WaterGuard drainage system. They also installed a TripleSafe sump pump in the corner of the basement and connected it to the drainage system. They filled back the gaps in the floor with rock and then replaced the concrete. Water is now properly guided through the WaterGuard, into the sump pump, and then discharged from the home. Todd is now enjoying a dry, healthier basement!
