American Waterworks Before & After
  • Crawl Space Transformed in New Lisbon, WI
    Crawl Space Transformed in New Lisbon, WI

    Crawl Space Transformed in New Lisbon, WI

    Mark S. in New Lisbon, WI had a dirt crawlspace under his home. Moisture was the main concern and was leading to air quality concerns in the living space. The exposed soil was also a significant heat loss concern. He started looking into crawl space encapsulation and contacted American Waterworks for a FREE estimate. We sent one of our Design Specialists, Rick Weber, to evaluate the situation and propose a unique solution to fit Mark’s needs.  Our Foreman, Jesus Covarrubias, and his production crew began the project by removing the debris from the crawl space. Then, drainage matting was placed on the dirt soil, and Terra Block insulation was place on top to create a thermal barrier. Next, the crew installed the rim joist insulation, Cleanspace vapor barrier on the floor, and Foamax wall insulation on the walls to create an airtight barrier between the soil below and the building materials. Mark is glad he chose a long-term solution to protect his home from the consequences that typically come with having a dirt crawl space.

    Suzie and Kevin K. in Camp Douglas, WI had water seeping through the cracks in the floor and around the perimeter of their basement. They were tired of dealing with the musty smell, and it was becoming an unhealthy space. They contacted American Waterworks, and we sent one of our Design Specialists to their home to inspect their situation and propose a solution. They approved of the plan and moved forward with the installation.  Our Foreman, Jose Castillo, and his production team was able to successfully waterproof their basement by installing 158 feet of our WaterGuard drainage system, our SuperSump sump pump, and our recommended SaniDry dehumidifier to control the humidity. Our SaniDry removes up to 109 liters of water per day, and is more powerful and energy efficient than ever! Suzie and Kevin were pleased with the results and glad they made the investment to protect their home.  Do you have a wet basement? Click here to receive a FREE estimate!

    Wet Basement Waterproofing in Wilton, WI

    Linda and Dick B. of Wilton, WI had water coming into their unfinished basement, and they wanted to go about renovations. They called American Waterworks and scheduled a FREE estimate with our Design Specialist, Chuck. Chuck went to their home, carefully inspected their water leaks, and proposed a solution that worked for them. They were confident in the proposal, so they went ahead with the proposal.  Our Foreman, Raul A., and his team installed our WaterGuard and Foamax Wall Panels. Our WaterGuard is an underground drain that leads to the sump pump, prevents water clogs, and collects water seepage from basement walls. Our Foamax is special insulation that keeps the basement dry, warm, and saves money on energy costs. Linda and Dick were very happy with the work and were looking forward to continuing their home renovations.  We provide FREE estimates. Give us a call today to schedule yours!

    Cracked Foundation Wall is Sealed in Tomah, WI Home

    A homeowner in Tomah, WI noticed seapage through their drywall and called American Waterworks to investigate the issue.  After a thorough analysis Tom noticed a crack in the homeowner's foundation that was causing the leak.  American Waterworks was able to install The FlexiSpan system in which seals the wall crack as a first line of defense.   But if any water should leak through the crack, a hidden, foam-lined channel transports this leakage to the waterproofing system.  Peace of mind for a lifetime!
