Job Stories From Detroit, OR
Damaged Downspouts on Home - Detroit, OR

This home was built on a slope. The high side of the home had its downspout extended roughly five feet away from the home. The low side of the home had two downspouts about a foot from the home. However, the longer one was damaged. A family friend had accidently tripped on the extension, and it had bent. This was a wake up call as to how dangerous this could be for people. They needed a solution. They knew the water needed to be sent away from the home so water wouldn't be dumped near the foundation, so they called up John's Waterproofing. 

Our installation crew arrived and extended this downspout into the ground. We then added a pipe system that goes underground to divert all water safely away from the home to a LawnScape outlet. The two lower downspouts were also extended down and attached to this system to keep this home protected. 

Retaining Wall Waterproofing - Detroit, OR

This homeowner had a home on a hillside overlooking a lake and he was building a retaining wall on his property to enlarge the size of his yard. He knew it was important to waterproof the inside of this wall to keep it strong and avoid water from weeping through the wall. A System Designer was sent out to the property to do measurements, take photos of the project and explain our system to the homeowner. 

The crew would be using TremDrain and Paraseal. TremDrain is a two-part prefabricated drainage material and protection board consisting of a formed polystyrene core covered on one side with a nonwoven, needle-punched, polypropylene fabric. This fabric allows water to pass into the drainage core while restricting the movement of soil particles. The plastic core provides compressive strength and moderate flow capacity. The TremDrain mats are then used with Paraseal waterproofing membranes serving both as a protection course and replacement for traditional pipe and stone drainage systems. TremDrain Series Drainage and Protection Boards replace or eliminate the need for separate protection and provide an uninterrupted flow plane and eliminates the opportunity for hydrostatic pressure to form against a wall. Now he could backfill the wall with confidence that the job was done right.



Small Cracks found in Basement - Detroit, OR

It is common for the ground to shift over years. Due to new construction, changes in waterways, or major landscaping projects the ground shifts, and this can shift the foundation of a home. This older home had shifted over the years and a few cracks had emerged in the foundation walls. The homeowners wanted to ensure their home was safe, so they called in John's Waterproofing to look at the cracks and assess the water that had begun to creep in. 

Since the cracks were minor we were able to fully address them, we installed repairs with a Paraseal and TremDrain combo. This fills in the crack thoroughly, and then covers the crack on the wall to keep it in space. We then installed a SaniDry Sedona to keep humidity levels in a healthy range so this home would be dry and healthy for the family. 

Waterproofing a Home that is being Built - Detroit, OR

Most of the waterproofing we do is on homes that have already been built, they have landscaping and have settled into their place, so to keep costs down and provide an efficient waterproofing job, we waterproof the interior of a crawlspace or basement. However, if we can get to a home as it is being built and the foundation is still exposed on the exterior we can waterproof it from the outside. 

This home was a perfect fit, to prepare to pour the foundation of the home the ground was dug out and had ample room for us to work around the foundation once it was poured. We applied Paraseal to the foundation walls from the outside to create a dry and healthy home from the start. Once we were done, the sides of the home were recovered in dirt and the work could continue on the home. 

Clean Space Encapsulation in Detroit, OR

Recently, our crews went on a job to Detroit to help a homeowner that was concerned about water intrusion in her crawlspace. After inspection, Jacob suggested installing our patented CleanSpace encapsulation system, Smart Jack stabilizing piers, and a Triple Safe sump pump.

Aaron and his team quickly set out to waterproof Denise's crawlspace and ensure that there would be no more water intrusion. The team first installed our patented CleanSpace encapsulation system that improves home comfort and energy efficiency while keeping out all moisture, outside air, and pests from getting into the crawlspace. When installed by John's Waterproofing, it comes with a 25-year warranty. The old posts were damaged by water and causing uneven floors, so our team replaced them with the Smart Jack stabilizers, adjustable steel piers that are designed to stop settling and can raise sagging floors to a proper level. A Triple Safe sump pump was also installed. It is a three-pump system that adjusts automatically to meet pumping requirements and continues to pump when the power goes out.

Denise now has a dry and healthy crawlspace for years to come!
