One of the constants in Oregon is rain. In order to work, our guys have to get creative on occasion. Yesterday our service technician Harry sent me their solution to working outside! The guys used our plastic sheeting (which we normally use for covering floors to not get muddy) and some plywood to create a dry cover for them to install a trench drain system.
Government camp home got a nasty winter, once the winter started to melt off the homeowner noticed water intrusion coming into the basement and garage that’s where we came in and helped the basement and garage drainage tie together to make this homeowners problem disappear, many people may not connect the dots on snow melt potentially becoming a water issue in their homes. That’s why during the winter it’s important to winterize your home an always be prepared for any ice or snow to become water and to know what that may end up affecting. This homeowner learned his lesson the hard way. It is always good to be proactive when it comes to protecting your home and family.
This homeowner was interested in selling his home and wanted to ensure that his basement would no longer have water intrusion. Water was entering through pores within the concrete walls, creating an unhealthy, damp, and unusable space. After inspection, our inspector, Larry suggested installing our patented WaterGuard System, a new vapor barrier, and a Super Sump pump.
Manuel and his team quickly set out to waterproof Scott's basement and make it dry for the new homeowners. They installed WaterGuard, our patented drain system which collects water from basement walls and drains it to the Super Sump pump that was also installed. The Super Sump was connected with an Ultra Sump back up battery which ensures that should the power go out, the Sump pump will continue to work.
Once our systems were in place, Scott no longer had to worry about water entering his basement. And he could enter the sale of his home confident that his basement will be dry and healthy for many years to come!
Our crews recently went on a job in Rhododendron for a customer who was complaining of water entering into his basement through the walls and cracks in the floor. Our inspector, Marcus suggested installing our patented WaterGuard drainage system and Bright Wall paneling.
Brad and his team quickly went to work to waterproof David's basement and make the space usable again. The team installed our Bright Wall paneling, a semi-rigid, white plastic panels that attach to foundation walls. Bright Wall is designed to work with the Waterguard waterproofing system by directing wall seepage into the perimeter drain and channeling it to the sump pump. WaterGuard is our patented non-clogging system designed to keep the basement dry. It effectively collects wall and floor seepage before it reaches the basement floor.
Once our systems were in place, David no longer has to worry about having a wet basement, and will have a dry, healthy, and usable space for years to come!
This crawlspace was wet, cold and damp and the homeowner was suffering more and more every day with allergies that she believed were due to the mold in her home in the bathroom and a spot in her room. A peek in the crawlspace revealed that there was a considerable amount of mold in the space.
Our crews had to first call and have the mold remediated and the water removed from the space. Once this work was done, our crews were able to come in and get the crawlspace properly sealed.
The job began with removing the bad insulation and vapor barrier, then clearing the space. We installed a sump pump to ensure that they wouldn't have further issues with water, and then encapsulated the space with our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier. The entire job was finished with a Sanidry dehumidifer to regulate the air for a healthier home.
This homeowner called John's Waterproofing because she had creaking/sagging floors and wall and window cracks. Our inspector, Kevin, determined that these problems were being caused by rotting posts. The posts were rotting because there was water in the crawlspace and the wood posts were absorbing the extra vapor. Kevin suggested installing our patented Cleanspace encapsulation system as well as replacing the rotting posts with Smart Jack Stabilizing piers.
Kevin and the team quickly set out to fix the problems in Tracie's crawlspace and started by replacing the old posts with Smart Jack stabilizing piers, which are adjustable steel piers that are designed to stop settling and can raise sagging floors to their proper level. They can easily be adjusted should there be future settling. They also installed our patented CleanSpace system to ensure that water, moisture, or insects/pests would get into the crawlspace and continue to cause structural damage. Cleanspace is a 7 different layer, 20 mil thick polyethylene composition that is also energy efficient.
Tracie is very happy with her new system and can trust that her floors won't sag and that water intrusion will no longer be an issue.
These homeowners were tired of their cold, unfinished basement floor and wanted something that would look great and protect their space from water issues. Luckily, John's Waterproofing had the perfect solution! Our inspector, Jack suggested installing Thermal Dry carpeted basement flooring.
Thermal Dry Floor systems are designed specifically for basements. Basement floors are likely to be wet at some point from either a plumbing leak or a surprise groundwater leak in a heavy rain. The bottom of Thermal Dry flooring has raised pegs to create an airspace under the floor. This feature keeps water vapor from getting trapped underneath the finished floor that can cause odors and mold. Thermal Dry floors are inorganic and will not rot or buckle like wood subfloors.
Kyle and Jen are now very happy with their beautiful new floors, and look forward to having usable space without concern of water issues.
This homeowner had heard of John's Waterproofing before and was interested in the basement waterproofing systems that we have to offer. They also had some concern over the excess water in their basement. Our inspector, Travis inspected their basement and recommended installing Thermal Dry walls, our patented Waterguard perimeter drain, and a Super Sump pump.
Sheryl happily agreed, so Delfino and his team quickly began working to waterproof the basement. They first installed Thermal Dry walls, a flexible material that is installed over the basement walls. It is designed to reflect heat back into the basement space, improving comfort and energy efficiency. Thermal Dry walls work perfectly with the Waterguard perimeter drain by directing wall seepage into the drain. Waterguard is installed in the footing of the basement and collects the walls and floor seepage. It then channels the water into the Super Sump pump. The Super Sump pump runs smoothly and quietly to pump out all water from the basement.
Not that our systems are in place, Sheryl is glad that she no longer has excess water in her basement and can enjoy a new, usable space.
This home had water coming into the crawlspace, and this concerned the homeowner. He called John's Waterproofing and our inspector, Bob came out to take a look. After seeing the crawlspace, he recommended that we install a Super Sump sump pump and Paraseal.
Ramon and his team quickly installed a Super Sump sump pump, which has a built-in alarm system for when water levels rise too high. They also added Paraseal, which is an exterior membrane that prevents water from getting into the crawlspace. Now that our systems are in place, Greg has fewer worries about the negative effects of having water in the crawlspace.
These homeowners called John's Waterproofing because they had water entering their basement. Our inspector, Daniel came out and recommended that we install our patented Waterguard drain system and a Super Sump pump. Once the homeowners agreed to the suggestions, Manuel and his team immediately started work in their basement. They installed our Waterguard system that is placed in the perimeter footing of the basement floor. Waterguard collects wall and floor seepage and directs it to the Super Sump pump. The Super Sump pump pumps up to 2,650 gallons of water per hour and comes with a built-in alarm system for if water levels get too high.
Jake and Chrysten are glad that their basement will no longer have water issues and make unusable space.
Derek called John's Waterproofing because his crawlspace had water in it. Our wonderful inspector, Jack came out to take a look and based on Derek's situation, he recommended installing our patented Cleanspace encapsulation system, a Super Sump pump, and a Lawnscape outlet. Once our suggestions were approved, Juan and his team quickly set out to waterproof Derek's crawlspace.
They began by installing our Cleanspace encapsulation system that comes with a 25-year warranty and is patented against moisture, mold and mildew growth, and acts as insulation. It is installed over the floor and walls of the crawlspace in order to keep out negative exterior elements. The team also installed a Super Sump pump which fits perfectly with the Cleanspace system and is designed to alert the homeowner if water levels get too high. We connected the Super Sump line to a Lawnscape outlet. Lawnscape outlets recieve the crawlspace water and are installed on the exterior of the house to keep the excess water from affecting the foundation. Lawnscape outlets come in three different versions for whatever the need may be.
Now that our systems are in place, Derek can rest assured knowing that water problems will not be an issue in his crawlspace for years to come!
Toni saw one of our service trucks out and about working on another home and knew that his crawlspace needed attention. He called John's Waterproofing to set up an inspection with our inspector Eric. Eric noticed that there was a lot of water intrusion and mold that needed to be addressed. He suggested installing our patented Cleanspace encapsulation system, a Triple Safe sump pump, and Mold-X.
Toni happily agreed, so Demetrius and his team went to work. They first had the mold removed so it was safe to continue our process and proceeded to put in an application of Mold-X to prevent mold from coming back. We then installed our Cleanspace encapsulation system that is patented against water and moisture intrusion, mold and mildew growth, and insects/pests. When installed by John's Waterproofing, Cleanspace has a 25-year warranty. We also placed a Triple Safe sump pump that works perfectly with the Cleanspace. The Triple Safe is a three-pump system designed to meet all pumping requirements. It will even continue to work when the power goes out with its third backup battery pump.
Toni is satisfied with his new system and no longer has to worry about future crawlspace repair necessities.
This homeowner was interested in having their crawlspace inspected because they hadn't gone in there in a long time. They didn't know if there were any problems but trusted that our team at John's Waterproofing could help them and let them know of any concerns that might be present. Our inspector, Carolann found that there was, in fact, a lot of water intrusion, and water was pooling in the crawlspace. She suggested that we install our patented Cleanspace encapsulation system, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier, and a Triple Safe sump pump.
Phil was grateful that he was now aware of the looming problems in his crawlspace and quickly agreed to Carolann's suggestions. Gordon, Demetrius, and the team immediately began working on waterproofing Phil's crawlspace. They installed Cleanspace, a 20 mil thick, 7 layer polyethylene composition that is placed on the floors and walls of the crawlspace to completely encapsulate it. It is patented to keep out all moisture, mold and mildew growth, make the crawlspace more energy efficient, and comes with a 25-year warranty when installed by John's Waterproofing. Once the Cleanspace was installed, Demetrius came in and applied Spray Foam insulation against the walls of the crawlspace. Both the cleanspace and the spray foam act as insulation, and together they create maximum energy efficiency. The team also installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier that cleans, filters and removes moisture from the air. It is the quietest and most energy efficient dehumidifier. The dehumidifier self-drains into the Triple Safe sump pump which is a three-pump system designed to remove the excess water.
Phil is thankful for our team at John's Waterproofing for taking care of all concerns in his crawlspace. He now has a highly energy efficient, clean and dry crawlspace.
Our crews recently went on a job in West Linn. The customer called about there being lots of water in their crawlspace and a damaged vapor barrier. The house had an old french drain that was not keeping up with the amount of water coming. So we sent out one of our members to inspect the crawlspace and come up with a plan.
Eric who went out to inspect this customer's crawlspace recommended doing a crawlspace encapsulation with our CleanSpace System. We would install a TripleSafe sump pump that has three pumps to cover getting all water out and our patented WaterWatch Alarm that goes off if water rises above the range to prevent damage. Along with our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier with a duet filter that removes mold spores, dust, and dust mite droppings. We would also install vent covers and encapsulate with our cleanspace barrier with spray foam around the perimeter of the home.
Our customer was very happy with the solution and now can have peace of mind that water will not take over their crawlspace again.
This customer called because he had a musty smell in his house that he couldn't get to go away. Upon further investigating that smell he started to wonder if it was coming from beneath his house. So he gave us a call to have one of our inspectors come out and take a look at what was going on. Our inspector found sagging old fiberglass insulation with a torn vapor barrier. Water and debris had been getting in the crawlspace causing mud, dirt, and moisture damage to the posts and beams. Causing a musty smell to move up thru the house. We recommended doing a crawlspace encapsulation to prevent future water problems from happening. We cleaned out the crawlspace and sealed the vents, the crew then laid down our terra block that is a foam insulation that is 3/4" foam underneath the cleanspace that completely seals in the crawlspace. Along with the cleanspace we installed our smart sump pump that is specifically made for the crawlspace. This customer was so happy to know he doesn't have to worry about musty smells or breathing in poor air from his crawlspace. He can relax knowing he has a dry crawlspace for years to come.
The soon to be buyers of the home were in the inspection phase, and were told it would be a good idea to have a waterproofing company come out and do an inspection. Upon finding water building up along the walls and vapor barrier in the crawl space.
Carolann did find some water buildup, but not enough to cause much worry. So Gordon and Nathan C went and cleaned out the old vapor barrier and installed new 10 mil vapor barrier. To prevent any future problems they installed the SaniDry Sedona to regulate humidity buildup. They also replaced the crawlspace entryway to keep the area sealed tight.
The buyers were extremely happy with the outcome, and were glad to know they could have it done before the move in date.
Denise and her roommate, Carl, called due to them constantly being sick. Vincent went out and found mold growth in the crawlspace, which can make the air quality very poor and carriers allergens into the home.
Cleaning up the space was first priority, due to water building up in the fiberglass insulation. Which was causing the black mold growth. After completely cleaning out the space, the crew installed the TerraBlock, and had to isolate the piers. So that when they laid down the CleanSpace, they can put it under the posts to seal the space completely.
For extra precaution, the crew made sure to install the SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier, and the TripleSafe sump pump. Ensuring that the humidity levels would be regulated. And that any water to get in, would be discharged out.
The customers were happy and saw results immediately. They were able to breath with ease again. Encapsulating the space, reassured the customers that it had eliminated added allergens from the crawl space.
The customer called because they needed better drainage for their space and their back yard. Due to the water building up in the yard and trickling into the crawl space.
Our crew went out an found that there was also mold growth, along with some flooding issues. They went to work by first pulling out all of the old vapor barriers and draining the water. Lupe had the crew flatten out as much as the ground as possible before installing the new 6 mil Vapor Barrier. They also installed the SmartSump pump to help catch and expel the water from the space with ease.
Connecting it to a discharge line, that is hidden meticulously under the yard. To then have it filtered out and off the property without being seen. Giving the homeowner the reassurance that they won't have anything protruding from the crawl space. They also won't have to worry about flooding occurring from the yard into the crawlspace.
Customer called to have one of her homes on a senior retirement park. She had called us because one of her friends referred us, and she liked the job we did. Her home had water starting to come in from the soil itself. And that the insulation had some water damage to it.
Making this job easier for everyone, they first dried out the crawl space. So that when they laid down the vapor barrier the moisture didn't continue to build and cause more damage. After the crawl space completed the dry out they started the process of laying down the 6 mil Vapor Barrier. They also put the SuperSump pump into place to start the process of filtering out the water from the crawl space.
The property manager was enthralled that the job matched and excelled with the job previously done for her friend.
Tom had called for water that was traveling from under his patio into his crawl space. He had suspected that there was water damage occurring in the foundation due to this. Thankfully he had found us in time, as there was minimal damage but it was happening. Just as he had thought.
Tyler came out and cleaned everything up, due to the built up water the old insulation was trashed. To help water filter, without it being intrusive to the crawl space, they laid down CleanSpaceDrain Matt. Overtop they laid down 6 mil vapor barrier, to completely seal the water into the soil.
The crew also made sure to patch up the spot that was eroded by the water, under the patio, to create a tight seal. Leaving a joyous customer with knowing that the water would no longer seep in from any other crevices.
The customer wanted to invest in getting their crawlspace encapsulated. There was no damage done to the crawlspace, other than moist insulation. After removing the old fiberglass insulation they started the process of encapsulating the crawlspace.
They started with isolating the piers, which is when we pull the moist soil out from the affected area, to make them stable once again. They then laid down a CleanSpace Drain Mat, which lays under the CleanSpace and allows the water to still move freely in the soil, without damaging or getting into the encapsulated area.
Finishing off the crawlspace, they replaced the vents with metal covers. And installed a SaniDry Sedona to regulate the temperatures and humidity levels. To help prevent any more problems from arising they sealed it with Spray Foam Insulation. Giving the homeowners reassurance that mold growth and water intrusion would not be a problem during the spring when it starts to rain.
Imagine constantly having a runny nose year round and your home always having an underlying musty smell. That is what these homeowners had been dealing with for a few years. She was reading the newspaper when she came across our article about the air you breathe in your home and how up to 50% of it comes from your crawlspace. She called us to have a free inspection of her crawlspace to see what it looked like and if there were any issues.
Once our inspector got out and looked at the crawl space there were definitely some issues. In parts of the crawl space, there were more than two inches of water. The mud under the old worn vapor barrier was thick wet mud creating a huge mess. The inspector recommended a full encapsulation system of the crawlspace. Our crews started with installing a TripleSafe sump pump that is a three pump system to give optimal support. They then sealed the vents completely shut to ensure that nothing can come in or out. Having your crawl space properly sealed is so important because when the air from outside comes in it never goes back out. It raises the humidity and rises up thru the home, allowing you to breathe in mold and other contaminants. We use a 20 mil thick woven fiver vapor barrier called CleanSpace. It attaches at the sill plate and completely covers the crawlspace. Due to the high humidity level in the crawlspace, we also installed our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier that filters the moisture, mold spores, and allergens out of the crawlspace, leaving the home with cleaner air. After all the products are installed and in place, we use spray foam insulation along the outside walls of the home. It offers more coverage and helps keep the air in from escaping your HVAC systems.
The homeowner was so relieved to finally have her crawlspace taken care of, and over time even noticed warmer floors. After a couple of months she no longer continuously had a runny nose and neither her roommate. She was more than happy with the job and recommends it to all of her neighbors and friends.
