    Customer Testimonial

              I visited the company website so I could let company management know how my recent job went but couldn't figure out where to send it. So, if you wouldn't mind, please pass this on to whoever will be interested. As you are aware, my job consisted of crawl space encapsulation with some minor changes requested by me, and a new sump pump system. While you and I had some minor differences of opinion as to what I wanted done, I want you to know how much I appreciate your working with me to get those accomplished. I am very satisfied with what was done and only wish I would have done it ten years ago. Thank you for a great job. Secondly, I want management to know what a pleasure it was working with Lupe and his crew. Rodney was there from day one, and I'm sorry that I can't remember the name of the fellow that joined them on Tuesday. All three introduced themselves and were very polite. Everything was cleaned up at the end of the day and my garage was never a mess. Lupe did a great job on new sump pump installation, replacing the entire line from pump to downspout. And finally, the job was finished in two days instead of three as originally discussed. Lupe sought me out and ask permission to work a little later on Tuesday so the job could be finished. I appreciated that. So again, thank you and your installation crew for a job well done. I would certainly recommend you guys to anyone who might be in need of such work in the future.

              Lupe, Andres, and Max were awesome and a joy to have in my home. They were so meticulous and caring about my house and property. They protected everything with plastic and cleaned up after themselves so you didn't even know they were there!! They answered all my questions and explained everything they were doing. They were by far the nicest group of workers I've ever dealt with at my home, besides my son, of course. I can't say enough nice things about the crew..give them a raise!!!! I have told all my neighbors what an awesome job they did and how impressed I was with it all. I actually had a second opinion bid and John's was a better price for virtually the same thing.

    Will S. of Beaverton, OR

    Customer Testimonial

              I could not be more pleased with the water abatement work in our crawl space that included significant drainage work and installation of a Triple Safe sump pump. I would not hesitate to use them for any future work. Our salesman was very responsive and informative. he took the time to answer questions and provide advice. When the crew arrived they were incredibly hard working. The team lead went out of his way to provide post-installation photos, which I had requested. They left the site as clean or cleaner than before the installation. That was no easy task given the excess amount of backfill rock that remained in the driveway. John's Waterproofing was recommended by the real estate agent that has assisted us with two home purchases and the entire process was outstanding!

    Dan P. of Salem, OR

    Customer Testimonial

              We first called TerraFirma but the salesman said we could dig out the entire exterior, add a membrane, drains etc for about $24,000. When I pressed for other ideas he seemed unenthusiastic. I said I would think about it and he never contacted me again. We then tried another company who was at least amenable to other approaches and gave me a quote of $12,000 for a sump pump and interior perimeter drains. Then we called John's Waterproofing and Peter came out. Peter was awesome. He had a whole suite of things that could help out in the basement and really listened and discussed our options. We weren't going for a dead dry basement that we could finish, we just wanted to get it dry and lower the humidity. So Peter and I went through all the things and came up with a plan together. In the end, we had a sump pump, perimeter drains in the basement and crawlspace, clean space barrier throughout the crawl and bright space paneling on the walls of the basement to stop humidity coming in from the walls. We also had piping installed below ground outside in which to run the gutters out to the street. All of that for only $8000. Once agreed the crews came right on schedule and finished the work ahead of time. I've waited to give a review to see the system in action. For the past week, it has been raining steadily. However in our basement is nothing but dry dust. Description of work: Our house is at the low point along several blocks and so our half basement/half crawl have always had problems with water intrusion. When it's not raining the basement has been humid and damp feeling, when it's raining the basement has had puddles of standing water. That has also caused the house to feel damp. We needed to dry out the basement and run water from the roof away from the house.

              Lupe and his crew did a terrific job. I am really pleased. I would highly recommend John’s Waterproofing and have told them to use me as a reference anytime. I can’t wait until it rains so I can see how it works! As a realtor I am in so many homes every year and water damage is a huge issue. Having this system in my own hand I can now speak first hand about the advantage of John's Waterproofing company and their system.
