This homeowner never knew why she could smell an earthy musty smell in her home. She saw our ad and decided to call us for an inspection. Our design specialist recommended a crawl space encapsulation with our CleanSpace vapor barrier. Our crew installed our 20 mils thick CleanSpace vapor barrier that is rip-resistant and prevents mold growth. After getting an encapsulation the homeowner couldn't smell that musty smell anymore. She also said there was a noticeable difference in temperature of the home.

This homes old vapor barrier was no longer doing its job. Moisture had pushed its way in absorbed into the old fiberglass insulation and caked mud had overtaken the barrier. To solve this we did a full crawlspace encapsulation with insulation made for a crawlspace to ensure the home would stay dry and healthy.

Job Stories From Elmira, OR
Dust Covered and Muddy Crawlspace in Elmira

The homeowners here checked out their crawlspace. They found a thick layer of dust and dirt on the wooden post footings, and mud was found on top of their simple 6 Mil vapor barrier. They knew these issues could lead to big problems for their home, so they called up John's Waterproofing for some help. After a full inspection we worked with them to form a solution. 

The first part of this job would be sealing up the space. The exterior entrance was tight and only had a piece of plywood to cover. We cut the concrete bigger so we could bring in supplies and installed an EverLast well and door. We then sealed up the vents. We then pulled out the old vapor barrier, the old fiberglass insulation and debris from under the home. We then installed a SuperSump with an UltraSump backup in the lowest spot. This will collect the groundwater and send it out and away from the home. TerraBlock insulation was then laid over the dirt floor and encased in CleanSpace. This is a 20 Mil woven vapor barrier that is inserted under each wooden post, anchored along the rim joist, and taped into place with a special four inch wide waterproof tape. We then insulated the foundation walls with Spray Foam and installed a SaniDry dehumidifier to keep this home dry and healthy! 

Crawlspace in Disrepair - Elmira, OR

A homeowner called John's Waterproofing with a request for a new 6 mil vapor barrier. Upon inspection, our design specialist discovered extensive water damage. The homes water level was filling the space, flooding up above the wooden posts levels, and the wood was beginning to rot away. Posts are critical to the support of the home and he was fortunate that the damage was not so severe that the posts needed replacing because that would have been very costly. However, the problem needed to be dealt with right away to prevent further damage. He agreed to a full encapsulation, complete with a comprehensive water control system to protect their home. 

The crew arrived and they removed all of the old vapor barrier, as well as the old, dirty fiberglass insulation and other debris. They installed a 3" perforated pipe drainage system around the perimeter to collect the water and direct it to a newly installed TripleSafe sump pump, along with proper discharge away from the home. TerraBlock, a high-density foam product was laid over the dirt floor. This aids in insulating the crawlspace while protecting the new CleanSpace, 20mil, nylon-reinforced barrier. This vapor barrier is used to isolate each wooden post and anchored to the foundation walls. We then installed a SaniDry dehumidifier to ensure the crawlspace humidity was controlled and the home stays dry and healthy. With all the vents sealed, closed cell Spray Foam insulation was applied to the full wall of the foundation to keep the home insulated to industry standards. Healthy, dry, filtered air helps the homeowners stay healthy, comfortable, lowers utility bills, and increases the value of the home.

Solution for Cold Floors In Elmira, OR

These homeowners had an older home with floors which were cold during the Winter months. The homeowners had a simple vapor barrier installed in their crawlspace and had pushed their old fiberglass insulation back up against the floorboards since it would droop down. Their energy bills were higher then they should have been, and so they called up John's Waterproofing to have a professional come and assess the crawlspace. 

To fix the homeowner's concerns we discovered that water was penetrating the crawlspace through porous foundation walls, so it would end up on top of the old vapor barrier, vaporize, and weigh down the old insulation. The old insulation was water damaged and was no longer providing proper heat retention to the home, rising the energy bills. We began by cutting the crawlspace entryway larger, and installed a new EverLast access well and Everlast doorway. We then removed the old insulation and vapor barrier. To keep water moving away from the crawlspace we installed a SuperSump pump with an UltraSump back up. The dirt floor was then insulated with TerraBlock, and encased with our woven 20 Mil vapor barrier; CleanSpace. This is inserted under each wooden post, anchored along the walls and secured in place. The walls were then insulated with Spray Foam and a SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to help keep this space dry and healthy. 

Falling Insulation and Caked Mud - Elmira, OR

Falling fiberglass insulation and caked on mud, these issues pledged this home. The caked on mud had left the old vapor barrier stiff and difficult to move around. To find a solution to their water issues, the home owners brought in John's Waterproofing. 

The first issue we addressed with this home was the tight crawlspace entrance. It was difficult to maneuver into, so we cut out the concrete to widen the space and installed an EverLast Door and EverLast Access Well. With this issue we addressed, the crew removed the old insulation and cut up the old vapor barrier to be able to remove it. Once the space was cleared out we installed a SuperSump pump and UltraSump back up should a power outage occur. To add insulation back to this crawlspace we installed our TerraBlock along the dirt floor. The space was than encased in our 20 Mil thick CleanSpace vapor barrier. This is installed under the wooden beams, and anchored along the walls. We than used spray foam to insulate the foundation walls. The final work for this crawlspace was installing a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. This home will now be dry and healthy. 

Water in Crawlspace in Elmira, OR

A homeowner had given us a call with concerns about their wet crawl space. Our crews went out and first removed all the debris from the crawl space. Then they installed CleanSpace encapsulation system on the floor and walls of the crawl space. The CleanSpace keeps out any moisture or water vapor from coming into the crawl space from the floor or walls. It also adds a nice-looking clean finish. CleanSpace also helps keep out pests. A SmartSump sump pump was installed in the crawl space as well. The SmartSump in perfectly designed for crawl spaces. In addition to the powerful pump, the SmartSump also has a built-in WaterWatch alarm system. So in the event of a plumbing leak, the alarm will sound to inform the homeowner that there is a problem while draining the water away before any damage is done. Now that homeowner no longer has to worry about water damaging their crawl space and home.
