              Letter from one of our customers to John Hello Mr. Lombardi, I'd like to finally thank you (I've been waiting till the work was all finished and paid up) for your very kind help last October. I was having major problems with continued post-fix basement flooding and sent you a letter of complaint; you immediately called to ask me about it and then dispatched your company's finest. Robin was terrific throughout; he stayed involved, was knowledgeable, generous with his time, and blessedly straightforward regarding the options and his recommendations. Delfino and, later, Cesar, were both excellent. They seemed experienced, on top of the situation, and impressively hardworking; Delfino and his crew were here till 8pm on the second fix. they did not stint on anything, explained to me what they were doing and why, and took crae of some extra details they thought advisable. But primarily it was your own prompt response and cordiality which eased my distress last fall and restored my confidence in the eventual success of this project. I cannot tell you how much I appreciated it. Yes, I can, actually- I have already recommended John's unreservedly to a friend with longtime basement problems and I would do so again. If you are ever going to be in the vincinity and have the time and inclination to stop by, for a cup of tea (or something stronger), please let me know. Our house is 100 years old this year (its showing its age a bit). Of course, everything is relative and 100 doesn't seem as old as it used to. Again, thank you. Yours truly, Susan

    Customer Testimonial

              Again, very professional. Arrived on time and knew his business. Didn't talk down to me and offered me a couple of pricing options - no pressure. Perfect - no mess at all. Arrived on time. Lay down lots of plastic. Installed the sump pump and vapor barrier within about three hours and left leaving no trace of a mess. Very friendly.

    Customer Testimonial

              Dear Mr. Lombardi I would like to commend you for having an absolutely outstanding employee in your company who surpasses all the others I have dealt with. I am talking, of course about Caleb. He has been coming to my house in Depoe Bay to inspect the clean space for the last few years. There were others that came out before him (the clean space was installed in 2010) and they were good, but they can not even come close to Caleb in professionalism, efficiency, courtesy, and superb manners. Thank you, again for sending Caleb because I have absolute confidence in him. P.S. all the girls in the office and Robin are also excellent!

    Waterproofing a Rhododendron, OR Crawlspace

    This crawlspace had a canal running through it caused by a natural spring that was causing water flow. Our teams put together a solution that saved this home from the problems caused by water by installing our patented CleanSpace system.

  • Floor Insulation in Molalla Oregon

    When we went into this job they already had some rigid form insulation in their crawlspace. Our team went in and completed the insulation and then did a complete encapsulation system to finish the space. 

  • Water in the crawlspace in Salem Oregon

    Water in the crawlspace in Salem Oregon

    When Robin first inspecte this house, he knew there were big problems. Not only was the vapor barrier torn and not covering the ground, improper drain lines were directing water under the home. This excessive water lead to rot in already improperly positioned posts. Our team proceeded to install a proper drainage system, replace rotted post, and encapsulate the space. this  made it dry and healthy for our home owners.
