Basement Finishing & Remodeling in Lake Oswego, OR

Waterproofing your basement prevents outside water from coming in but what if a pipe bursts or the water heater leaks inside the home. A newly finished basement done by your average contractor will mold and rot if there is an internal leak. You'll have to tear out your new basement! We fix this issue.

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

  • Energy-efficient, double-paned basement windows
  • Attractive Sunhouse basement window wells
  • French, bifold, louvre & six-paneled steel doors
Unlike the average Lake Oswego contractor we use completely inorganic, waterproof materials. Even if the basement floods your walls and floors will not be damaged by the water. These waterproof products are patented and are built to create an attractive finished basement that lasts a lifetime.

Sinking Floor Fix in Lake Oswego, OR

Andrew and Kari called in one day worried about their kitchen. They noticed that the floor had sunken approximately 2 inches and they were very concerned about more damage happening. Jacob was happy to go out and take a look. After inspecting their crawl space he told them about crawl space encapsulation and post-repair. They agreed that this sounded like a good option for them and shortly after Lupe was out with his crew to get the work started. 

First, the crawl space was cleaned and dried out, including the insulation. Then they did some repairs to the support beams and installed SmartJack supports where needed. A dehumidifier was put in to keep the space dry, a Super Sump was installed along with the CleanSpace vapor barrier. Spray foam insulation was put in and a French Drain was installed outside to ensure that all water was being directed as far away from the home as possible. 

Andrew and Kari were very happy with the work done. So much so that they even gave us a great review. We value our customers and are committed to providing people with dry, healthy crawl spaces and basements which will remain dry and healthy for a very long time.

Falling Insulation in Lake Oswego, OR

This customer had falling insulation all over their crawl space and the vapor barrier was not covering the whole crawl space. With these problems, it left their crawl space in despair and a host to a multitude of problems. When your crawl space is not properly sealed moisture, mold, and pests can cause a nightmare for the homeowner. This homeowner decided enough was enough and called us to have an inspection. 

Our inspector went out and found that the crawl space had moisture which was a contributor to the falling insulation. He recommended an encapsulation system be installed to make sure that the health of the home would greatly increase. Our crew went out and cleaned all the debris out and installed a smart drain. We then started to lay the Terra Block down which is insulation designed for the crawl space floor. It goes under the CleanSpace vapor barrier that we use to help seal the crawl space. To help keep humidity levels down we installed our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier that is the perfect size for the crawl space. It removes moisture, mold spores, and other allergens from the air. Giving your home cleaner air for your family to breathe. 

This homeowner was so happy with their job and the musty smell from the crawl space was gone quickly. They were glad they called us when they did so that the elements didn't destroy the foundation of their home. 

Waterproofing Crawl Space in Lake Oswego, OR

Jayne called our office because she was interested in having her crawl space waterproofed. Jayne was concerned about water being in her crawl space and causing any structural damage. So she was interested in finding out what her options were before any issues became worse. 

Our company, John's Waterproofing Company, has been in business since 1974 so Jayne knew she was calling a company who were well versed in what we do. We quickly got Joyne on the schedule and sent our senior Design Specialist Vinny B. out to take a look. Sure enough, there was some evidence of some water damage. 

In just a few days Fernando H. and his crew went out and cleaned out all of the old material in the crawl space and did some minor repairs that were needed. Next, they installed a SaniDr Dehumidifier to ensure there would be no moisture and did a full encapsulation of the crawl space using CleanSpace vapor barrier and spray foam.

Jayne now a clean crawl space that is dry, which also helps her save on energy.

Escaping Air in Lake Oswego, OR

This customer called and made an appointment to learn more information about encapsulating your crawl space. They hadn't been in their crawl space in years and didn't know the conditions. When our design specialist went down he found mold and rotting posts due to moisture exposure in the crawl space. The homeowner also complained that the heating bill was so high every winter and they couldn't figure out why because the insulation was still wrapped around the HVAC tubing. Our design specialist recommended a crawl space encapsulation and to replace the rotting posts. 

Our crew went out and cleaned out the old vapor barrier and insulation from the crawl space and treated the mold with Mold X2 cleaner. After the crawlspace was ready we installed our SmartJack posts that are made of steel and can be adjusted as settling occurs. When having your crawl space encapsulated we use a 20 mil thick vapor barrier called CleanSpace, it has a protective barrier to stop mold and completely seals the crawl space. To help make sure water and moisture stop we installed a TripleSafe sump pump in this crawl space. It is has a three-pump design to run the pumps according to the water flow. The crew installed our SaniDry Sedona that is perfect for crawl spaces and helps remove moisture, mold spores, and other allergens from the air. 

The homeowner was so happy with their crawl space after the job was complete. They could not believe it was the same crawl space.  Over time they will see a 15-35% energy savings due to the air from their HVAC system not leaking its air out of the crawl space vents. 

Wet and moldy Crawlspace in Lake Oswego, OR

This customer called with concerns for their crawl space continuously being wet even with the sump pump they made. The foundation was leaking water and the fiberglass insulation was absorbing all the moisture causing mold and sagging. The homeowner called us for a free inspection to help relieve some of these issues. 

When our inspector went out he found mold under the fiberglass insulation, and one some areas of the foundation. The soil was mud and the old black plastic vapor barrier was torn and puddled with water. Continuously exposing your crawlspace to these conditions takes a toll on your foundation and the air quality of your home. Our inspector recommended a crawl space encapsulation system to keep the water, moisture, and mold out of the crawl space for good. 

Our crew went in and did a complete dry out first to remove all the moisture and dampness out. After the crawl space was dried they treated the mold with a product we use called Mold X. It kills the mold and removes the mold stains from the wood. Once we had the mold and moisture taken care of we put in a drainage system with our TripleSafe sump pump. It is a three-level pump the will run depending on the volume of water that is flowing in. When doing an encapsulation we use our CleanSpace vapor barrier, it is a 20 mils thick woven fiber barrier that is rip-resistant. To make sure your crawl space is completely sealed we put the vapor barrier all the way up to the sill plate of the home along with running the barrier under your posts and piers. Once the crawl space is encapsulated we installed our SaniDry XP dehumidifier that will filter out moisture, mold spores, and other allergens. Leaving your home with cleaner air and preventing moisture and mold from the crawl space. Lastly, our after everything is in place and set our crew uses a spray foam insulation around the parameter of the crawlspace. Completely encapsulating the space and leaving you with a dry and healthy crawl space. 

The homeowner was so thrilled to have such a burden lifted and know that the foundation of her home was protected. She couldn't believe the transformation of the crawl space and it was the same space. 

Musty Crawlspace

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. 

Waterguard in Lake Oswego, OR Basement

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.

We purchased our Red Fox Hills condo in 2017 as a second home and at the time were told of "dry rot" on posts and water in the crawl space. Now time to address. Concerned that maybe we have an inside leak...or possibly natural spring leakage. We are part-time and will be back in Lake Oswego in late June. Would it be possible to schedule an inspection/estimate? Would Tuesday June 25 at Noon be OK? Please let me know. Thanks Edward Hayman Cell 1-847-736-0668 or LO Tel 503-303-4896
