Basement Remodeling in Independence, OR

Waterproofing your basement prevents outside water from coming in but what if a pipe bursts or the water heater leaks inside the home.

  • Waterproof, washable, insulated walls           
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended ceiling

Job Stories From Independence, OR
Six inches of Water in Crawlspace - Independence, OR

These homeowners went to check under their homes after heavy rains had occurred and discovered six inches of water standing throughout the area. The homeowners were worried about the issues that could arise with water penetrating the wooden beams under their home and called John's Waterproofing for help. 

Our crew arrived and began by removing the debris from under the home, this included removing the old and damaged insulation that was falling apart due to the water weight. We then installed a SuperSump Plus to collect groundwater and push it out and away from the foundation of the home. Since the old insulation was so thoroughly damaged we added crawlspace-specific insulation to the space; TerraBlock insulation was laid over the dirt floor, and the foundation walls were insulated with Spray Foam. We sealed the space with our CleanSpace vapor barrier. This creates a water-tight seal beneath each post and anchors along each wall. As an added layer of protection, we also installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. This home will now be worry-free when the rains come through. 

Crawlspace has Six Inches of Water - Independence, OR

This home was experiencing water issues, and the homeowners were frantically trying to control the six-plus inches of water that had pooled under their home. To help out we started by sending a service tech. They hooked up a temporary pump system to move water out of the crawlspace to a safe location away from the home's foundation. We then had a design specialist go out and assess the situation when we could see things more clearly. 

To solve this problem we began by laying out a system with three-inch perforated pipes. This would collect the groundwater and distribute it to one of the two SmartSump Pumps we installed to cover the large space with the areas with high levels of water. These sump pumps then pushed the water out and away from the home to newly installed LawnScape outlets. We then isolated each wooden post so it wouldn't get water damage and encased the crawlspace with our 20 Mil think CleanSpace vapor barrier. To top of this project we installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to control the moisture content. This home will now be dry and healthy! 

Leaking Basement in Independence

This customer had an unfinished basement that had a bathroom and was their laundry room. Over time they started to notice a musty smell and started looking around for where it was coming from. They had found water was leaking into their basement bathroom causing mold to grow. 

Our inspector Carolann went out and recommended installing our patented WaterGuard system that goes around the parameter of the basement floor that drains water unseen into a Super sump pump to be pumped out of the basement a safe distance from the home. We installed ThermalDry wall that helps reflect heat back into the basement. Along with a nice finish with our BrightWall paneling in the basement. 

Now, these homeowners are on their way to a finished basement and don't have to worry about water leaking into the basement. They can have peace of mind for years to come every time it rains that their basement will be dry and not stress that mold is growing.
