    Sump Pump Done Right in Portland, OR

    Here is a customer in Portland, Oregon called stating that his sump pump wasn't working or pumping out water. When our team went out to look they found this homemade sump pump that definitely was not working and there was standing water and much in the crawl space. The Foreman went over all of the issues and the possible fixes with the customer and they decided that a full encapsulation was the best choice. Customer now has a clean, dry crawl space that is virtually maintenance-free while also helping cut costs on his energy consumption.

    This customer had been living in her new home for a few months before they found a door in one of the closets in their finished basement. When she opened the door she had found an unfinished portion of the basement that had visible standing water and damaged vapor barrier. Our crew installed a drainage system and encapsulated the unfinished space with our CleanSpace vapor barrier that is 20 mils thick and is tear resistant.

    This before and after shows that process of applying Spray Foam insulation to the walls of the crawlspace after Cleanspace is installed. Insulation is not needed on the sub-floor because the Spray foam on the walls is working with the cleanspace to encapsulate, waterproof, and insulate. They work better together than apart! Spray Foam is closed-celled so it will not allow water to collect or stick to it.
