    Can't say enough about the installation team. They were neat and on time, met all time estimates and left our home in excellent condition. It was a very satisfying experience.I also providing a rating today on Angie's List that gave an overall score of a B which is still good and fits with my satisfaction and willingness to do business with John's again should the need arise.

    The room where our crawlspace access is was cleaner than before they started. Very impressed with how thoroughly they cleaned the crawlspace out, especially with the old sagging insulation.

    Customer Review

    By Glen C.

    Both Zezar and Harry worked at our house. Both not only did an excellent job, but did extra repair work on my ducts that was over and above the job they came to do. They seemed happy to do it. They made it seem like it was not a big deal for them to do the extra work. But to me it was a huge deal. I didn't know my duct had become disconnected so even just to point it out was very helpful. But to repair for me saved me a big headache and I very much appreciate their help. I also liked their "can-do" approach to the job - they were very easy to work with. Thanks to both of them.

Exterior Excavation

Heavy equipment is brought in to dig out the entire perimeter of the basement. New drain lines are installed, and sometimes a waterproof coating is applied to foundation walls. This waterproofing strategy is expensive and often damages lawn and garden areas. Exterior drains are prone to clogging with silt and roots over time.

Interior Subfloor Drain

This drain line is installed underneath the basement floor, just inside the foundation walls. The hidden drainage system brings water to a sump pit, where a sump pump automatically pumps it outside. Also known as a French Drain, this system is not prone to clogging; it’s reliable and easy to service.

Interior Baseboard System

A hollow plastic baseboard is installed along the base of basement walls to form a drainage channel that directs water to a sump pump system. A baseboard-type drainage system is sometimes recommended when the basement slab is too thin to accommodate a French Drain.

Negative-side Sealant

This waterproofing technique involves "painting" basement walls and floors with a waterproof, cement-based coating that's supposed to seal out moisture. Even when applied correctly, this thin membrane usually fails in response to prolonged hydrostatic pressure from outside the foundation.
