    I manage a real estate office and have observed most of the competitors. John's has the best reputation in the real estate community and preferred by the public as well. And as it turns out you had done work at my house in the past. Plus your warranty and annual maintenance can't be beat. I am a very happy customer!

    Customer Testimonial

              Good morning. All of your employees who worked in crews at different times were very friendly and professional. They knew their task and worked efficiently to complete each step and after completed explained what they had done in terminology I could understand. There was some difficulty installing the Turtl under the house because of lack of space in the foundation. Your salesman, Bob McDowell was here the 1st morning the project was started for a few minutes and said the Turtl couldn’t be used and we would have to settle for a Crawl Space Access Door. This was really disappointing. I really wanted that easy access under the house. I discussed this with Ramon ( Supervisor) who studied the issue and found a way to resolve and complete the installation of the Turtl. When they started work they found that 1 of the heat vent tubes had fallen down, was wet and destroyed. It would have taken a heating company 3 – 5 days to get here so I purchased materials and his team installed after their work day to keep the project on schedule. He also asked why we weren’t installing Terra Block on the ground and explained the importance of using this material. He negotiated a fair price and installed the next day. Your office staff was great answering questions and coordinating subcontractor work. I was very impressed with your staff for going the extra mile completing our project. In just a few weeks our house is warmer, dryer and smells fresher than it has. Overall we are very impressed with John’s Waterproofing Co. and will recommend your service to anyone.

              A wonderful experience it was working with your team. Kevin was by far the nicest and most professional sales person I have ever met, he felt more like a friend and confidant than a salesman. About the job- Ramon and his staff were smooth, professional and absolutely incredible. You should be very proud of the staff you have to get the job done.

    Customer Testimonial

              Thank you to Ramon, Ivan and Jake for their part in addressing water problems at the Hulbert house in mid-October. Because my daughter Julie needed to be at work, I was recruited from Kennewick, Washington to be present during that phase of the project. Ramon kept us well informed of work in progress with pictures and explanations of steps needed to do the job properly. All the guys took special care to keep things as clean as possible, which was not an easy task with mud. I believe the job will be completed this week now that it's dry enough to insulate the walls. Really appreciate their customer assistance and working attitudes. Kudos! Thanks to you all. Based on the progress so far, I would highly recommend John's Waterproofing to others.

              We want to thank you and your crew for the intensive work put forth in our crawl space. The workers put in three long days of dirty, sweaty, claustrophobic work down there and left it looking like the grandkids could play in it! Ok, kidding there! We appreciated the care they took in shielding with heavy plastic the area around our crawl space entry in order to keep dirt and dust from our living area. And what may seem trite but was a plus to our ears one floor above them was that the men always seemed happy to be at their work. Ramon kept us informed of every step and was a real comfort to us when we had concerns about this or that. We can't praise him high enough. Thank you all!!!!

    Woody E. of Portland , OR

    Customer Testimonial

              John's Waterproofing came out and encapsulated my crawlspace two years ago. When I decided it was time to finish my basement, they were the only company I called. Throughout the process the crew has been very respectful, clean and thorough. They made sure that my entire basement was sealed off and covered in plastic so that they did not get dirt or mud anywhere in my basement during the process. Manuel answered my questions when I had them and did not mind when I popped my head in to check on their progress. I was very happy with the work they did. Now the space fits with the rest of my finished basement.

    Customer Testimonial

              Sales: I wasn't present for the initial consultation but my Wife told me it went well. Ben explained in detail the work that needed to be done and was courteous, professional and prompt. He was also available to answer a couple questions that I had over the phone which he did well. Might have over-sold us a bit on the De-humidifier, but I chalk it up to piece of mind so it doesn't bother me. A more cost-conscious consumer might raise an eyebrow.Service: The installation crew was super courteous, professional and prompt. I appreciated that they kept in communication with me over the entire process and whenever there was a question involved they always got my input. They covered most of my stuff in the basement with plastic which I appreciated because there ended up being a lot of dust on the job. I also appreciate that they didn't waste any time, and worked very hard to get the job done in the shortest time possible.
