  • "It was excellent. They did most of it in one day. They were very professional and very clean." Read Full Testimonial

    Matt B. of Redmond, OR

    Customer Testimonial

              We used John's Waterproofing to waterproof our basement. They put in a drainage channel around the perimeter of the basement and they put in a sump pump with a battery backup. They put in an air dehumidifier and put up whitewall sheeting on the walls. It was excellent. They did most of it in one day. They were very professional and very clean. They made sure that nothing was damaged. They broke up a lot of the concrete so there was a lot of dust and they made sure they ventilated the basement. They didn't get any dust in the house. They took a lot of time to show me how to operate the sump pump and the dehumidifier. We don’t know if it was a lot or a little to pay.

    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

              Lisa in the front office was great at working with our schedule for the inspection and following up and confirming. Jack our inspector was very thorough and took care of exactly what we were trying to accomplish. While the crew was there they did an excellent job of communicating exactly what they were doing. What they expected to accomplish each day and when they left they explained what was scheduled for the following day. We had a couple of areas where we needed to make some minor changes on account of a noise problem in the crawlspace. We discussed a couple of solutions and picked what we felt would work bast. The crew did a full clean up each day. Plastic down on all of the walkways and carpet. No clean up at all on our part. Five starts across the board, I would definetely hire them again.

    Customer Testimonial

              Installed drain around entire perimeter inside the basement with sump pump in my 1925 home. it was very loud though when they used jackhammers to dig through the concrete; why they didn't use a concrete saw I'll never know, as it wouldn't have been so messy but they did clean up after themselves. They coordinated well with the plumber and also with the firm that removed the mold from the walls

              I want to take this opportunity to express a tremendous thank you for the crew that you sent us. All three worked diligently throughout the day and in a very professional manner. They took the time to answer my curious questions about the various things they were doing, I am a person that likes to know how a project like this all fits together :) They did a great job of prepping the work areas to keep messes to a virtual minimum and cleaned up thoroughly once the work was completed. I couldn't have asked for a better crew to help with our home's problems! I am excited to see how it all functions once we get into the rainy season!

    This basement had water seepage in multiple locations. It already had two sump pumps in place that were not functioning or placed properly. Because of this, the water was still able to leak into the basement. The solution? We installed the Waterguard basement drain system along the entire interior perimeter of the basement and replaced one of the sump pumps with our TripleSafe Sump pump. Since the TripleSafe is a powerful, top of the line pump, we only needed to install one of them. Now, the water will be channeled into the Waterguard and to the sump pump ensuring this home owner that water will never touch the basement floor again!
