We came out to this home that had no vapor barrier, cracks in the walls, water leaking in, and the insulation needed a serious update. They were spending hundreds of extra dollars a year in energy bills just trying to keep the home comfortable for them. That’s when we stepped in and did a CleanSpace encapsulation, crack repair, added drainage and a dehumidifier, and then coated the walls with closed cell spray foam insulation. Making this crawl space clean, dry, warm and energy efficient year-round.

Basement Remodeling in La Pine, OR

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

Our Products Include:
  • Waterproof, washable, insulated walls           
  • Mold-Resistant, No-Sag suspended ceiling
  • Modular carpet, tile & faux wood flooring

Case Studies From La Pine

When our team first went out to this house the homeowner was well underway with a variety of home improvement tasks. One of these tasks included...
Job Stories From La Pine, OR
Water Weight Keeps Ruining Fiberglass Insulation - La Pine, OR

This homeowner had fiberglass in their crawlspace to help insulate the home. They did annual checks on their crawlspace, and the fiberglass would need to be replaced almost every two years. The homeowners were annoyed with the frequency this needed to be done. They knew water was a leading cause in this damage and had tried a simple six mil vapor barrier. However, they noticed it quickly accrued mud over the top of it. In an effort to solve this issue, the homeowners searched online and learned about our crawlspace encapsulation system. They called up our offices for a full inspection and estimate for an encapsulation. 

To begin the project our installation crew removed the old vapor barrier, insulation, and general debris. They then began to dig a trench through the crawlspace and installed a three inch perforated pipe system in a silt sock to keep debris out. This system directs all water to a newly installed UltraSump pump plus. From here water is pushed away from the home to a LawnScape outlet. Next we installed insulation made to last in a crawlspace. TerraBlock was laid over the dirt floor and SilverGlo panels were anchored along the foundation walls. Next our crew air sealed the space and sealed up the vents. CleanSpace was then brought in, inserted under each wooden post, sealed against the walls, and taped into place with a specially crafted four inch waterproofing tape. This vapor barrier is 20 Mil thick and woven, backed with a twenty-five year warranty against rips and tears. As a final piece we brought in a SaniDry dehumidifier to help the air remain dry and healthy. 

Water, Rats and Mold - La Pine, OR

This new homeowner was suffering from breathing problems after moving into their new home and suspected mold was growing in the crawlspace. To asses the space, she contacted John's Waterproofing. A highly trained System Designer was dispatched to the address to do a full assessment of the situation where he did, indeed, find mold growing on the beams and flooring above.  He also discovered a rodent infestation. They had destroyed the old fiberglass insulation and left their droppings everywhere. He was able to show the homeowner his findings through the many photos he took as well as the evidence of persistent water intrusion. He measured the crawlspace and presented the homeowner with a proposal and explained the warranty offered. The homeowner was impressed, signed the proposal and work was scheduled. 

A crew was dispatched to the home a few weeks later. In the crawlspace, the old barrier and moldy insulation were removed followed by an application of MoldX2 to kill the mold that was attaching itself to the wood. A 3" perforated pipe drain system was then installed around the perimeter and graded to the lowest point of the crawlspace where a SuperSump was installed to gather the water and discharge it out and away from the home. The crew then installed a new 6mil plastic barrier on the floor of the crawlspace and attached to the foundation walls to ensure that any water seeping in via the footing or wall was captured and removed by the drainage system. The family also purchased a SaniDryXP dehumidifier for the home to help keep the air clean and healthy.

Uneven Floors and Doors won't close - La Pine, OR

Uneven, creaky floors and doors that won't close and cracks in the drywall are enough to alert any homeowner that something is seriously going wrong. This home in the high desert of Oregon didn't have a water problem but structurally it was being undermined by the sandy soil it was built on.  The homeowner contacted John's Waterproofing and was pleasantly surprised to learn we serviced the area.  

Our trained salesperson found that, because it was slowly sinking the home needed extensive reinforcement. The 94 ft main beam in the home was cracked in several places due to the post supports failing.  The solution was a new beam and 24 new SmartJacks to support the home.  SmartJacks are adjustable and can be checked and adjusted.  Made of corrosion-resistant galvanized steel, they are made to last and protect your home for a long time.  Our trained crew was able to make the necessary repairs and restore the home to a level and stable condition. While not inexpensive, it was far less than having to rebuild.

Annual Snow Melt Leads to Flooded Crawlspace - La Pine, OR

Snow can be fun and exciting, but the melt that follows can bring a lot of water in a short amount of time. This home was dealing with an overflow of water every year as the melt would run past their home, flooding their crawlspace. As the years went by, this caused a lot of damage to this space including drooping, water-heavy fiberglass insulation, and mud caked on their old vapor barrier and around the foundation posts. Worried about the long-term damage that was ensuing, they called in John's Waterproofing. 

Our crew began by doing a thorough cleanup, removing all of the old insulation, removing the vapor barrier, as well as all debris from under the house.  With a clean slate, we began by installing a perforated pipe around the interior parameter that would collect groundwater and divert it to a newly installed SmartSump pump. This then pushed all water out and away from the house. We then laid down TerraBlock crawlspace insulation and sealed the space with our Cleanspace vapor barrier. This is anchored into the foundation walls and under each post for secure waterproofing. The foundation walls were then insulated with spray foam and we added in some new vent covers. The homeowners were very excited to see the difference with the snowmelt comes this year. Here's to a dry and healthy home! 

Ice and Snow Melt Water Damage - La Pine, OR

This home in La Pine had regular snow and ice in the Winter, and when it melted, there would be some pooling around the foundation of their home. After years of this, the homeowners noticed a musty smell drafting from their crawlspace. Upon inspection, they found drooping fiberglass insulation and evidence of mud and dirt all over their old vapor barrier. Apparently the old system was not up for the job at hand and was allowing a good amount of moisture and water build up under the home causing damage to the foundation. They knew that this was creating unhealthy air in their home and could lead to serious foundation issues, so they called John's Waterproofing.

Our inspector quickly put together a plan of action. Our install crews removed the damaged insulation, old vapor barrier, and all the debris from the crawlspace. They then installed a TripleSafe sump pump, capable of pumping out 6200 gallons of water per hour. This would be able to handle the amount of runoff created when the snow and ice melted and would direct all of the water out and away from the home. A layer of drainage matting was laid out to direct water towards the pump. We then installed our TerraBlock insulation barrier to help keep water our and heat in. To top this off, a layer of Cleanspace, a 20 Mil weaved barrier, was secured to the entire crawlspace floor, isolating the posts and connecting along the concrete walls and the SilverGlo wall insulation. To finish encapsulating the space we added in new vent covers and a new crawlspace entrance door. This property is prepared and ready to take on the PNW weather!
