This homeowner complained that they have some occasional water in the winter and in heavy rains and some puddles in the crawlspace. They figured that summer was the best time to get it taken care of. Our inspection revealed that the problem was much larger than anticipated. The concrete foundation was crumbling due to constant moisture under this home. The lines on the ripped visqueen and the drainage pipe under the home, show the depths that water has sat during the rainy times. Our crews came and installed a perimeter drain and sump pump to ensure they never had to worry about water issues again.
Our crews went out to Cascadia after a homeowner called with complaints of her 1926 home having constant water intrusion. Our team installed BrightWall paneling on all of the walls of the basement. BrightWall not only gives the basement a nice, clean looking finish but also guides any and all water coming in through the walls into the WaterGuard system that was installed along the perimeter of the basement. The WaterGuard piping system channels any water that comes into the basement right to the TripleSafe sump pump. This sump pump makes sure that in the event of one of the pumps failing, there's a backup pump. That backup pump is also there case there's ever a plumbing leak and there's too much water for just one pump to handle. The TripleSafe also has a third pump that is battery operated in case there's ever a power outage. The customer now has a dry and healthy basement for years to come.
A homeowner in Harrisburg called our office to see what we could do for their wet crawlspace. Our crews went out and first cleared out all debris in the crawlspace. They then installed CleanSpace encapsulation system. CleanSpace will keep any moisture or water vapors from coming into the crawlspace through the floor or walls. This will help lower heating costs for the homeowner and improve the overall health of the crawlspace and rest of the home. Our crews also used Spray foam insulation. Spray foam insulation won't be affected by cold, warm or moist air. It fills in every crack, space, and void, helping reduce energy costs and reduces the risk of mold. A CleanSpace Vent Cover was also installed over the crawlspace vent. This keeps outside air where it should be, outside. This means that no cold, hot or humid air is coming into the crawlspace and causing mold issues. A SuperSump sump pump was put in the crawlspace as well. The SuperSump sump pump not only has a powerful pump that can pump 2,650 gallons of water an hour smoothly and quietly but also has a built-in WaterWatch alarm system that will alert the homeowner to a water problem before any damage is done. There is also now a SaniDry CX dehumidifier in the crawlspace to filter out the air, removing any moisture in the air and ensuring a dry and healthy crawlspace and home. Our teams also installed Smart Jack crawlspace stabilizer to stop settling and raise the floor back to the proper level. This means no more sagging floors or inoperable doors. The homeowner now has a dry crawlspace and a healthier home for years to come.
After receiving a call from a homeowner in Mill City, Oregon with complaints of water in their crawl space, our crew went out to the home to fix the problem. This home, like many other homes, had a vented crawl space. This means that any cold, hot or humid air from outside can and will come into the crawl space and therefore into the rest of the house. Our crews installed an insulated vent cover to fix this problem. Having this vent cover will help lower energy costs for the homeowner and improve air quality.
Another way our team helped lower heating and cooling costs from the crawl space was by using Spray Foam insulation in the crawl space. Spray Foam fills every space and void, improving air sealing. Our crews then installed TerraBlock on the floor of the crawl space for extra insulation and padding. Our CleanSpace encapsulation system was installed on top of the TerraBlock and the walls. CleanSpace prevents any moisture or water vapors from entering the crawl space. This means no new mold growth or wood rot. Now this homeowner can have peace of mind knowing that they have a dry and healthy crawl space.
A homeowner gave us a call after getting tired of always having water in her basement. Our crews went out to the home in Shedd, Oregon. They installed WaterGuard basement waterproofing system. WaterGuard intercepts water at the perimeter of the basement and drains it unseen safely away. It has special wall flange that creates space between the floor and wall which allows wall seepage to drain while keeping dirt and debris out. The WaterGuard drains the water into the sump pump. Our crew installed a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe has three separate pumps so that in the event of a plumbing leak or power outage, the sump pump will still drain away any water. It also has a built-in WaterWatch alarm system to alert the homeowner if there is a problem before any damage has occurred. Now this homeowner will be able to fully enjoy their dry basement.
This builder had sat in on a class by John about water intrusion and knew when he built his new home he wanted to invest the extra money into making sure it was correctly waterproofed from the beginning. Most builders are so concerned with the price that they will choose the cheapest option that meets code.
Our crew installed paraseal, a thick waterproofing membrane, around the foundation of the home and a drainage matting called Tremco to protect the home from any water intrusion after construction.
Now this builder will have a safe and dry foundation for years to come and not have to worry about water intrusion.
We received a call from a homeowner who was having difficulties keeping their energy costs at a reasonable rate. Our crews went out to the home in Tangent, Oregon to help. Having dirt crawl space can drastically effect heating and cooling costs in a home. So our crew installed CleanSpace encapsulation system on the walls and floor of the crawl space to prevent any moisture or water vapors from coming into the crawl space through the floors or walls. It also keeps the floors warmer which helps lower heating costs. This home also had a vented crawl space. Having an open vent means that any cold, hot or humid air from outside can come directly into the crawl space. So our team installed an insulated vent cover to prevent this from happening. Preventing cold air from the ground and all the air from outside drastically helps to lower heating and cooling costs for the homeowner.
A customer called with concerns of water in the crawl space and wanted one of our inspectors to come out and take a look. The inspector did happen to find water, but what he also found was mold and rotted-out posts due to the moisture and water being the crawl space. He offered a solution to the water issues and to the rotted posts, that solution was our SmartJack Post Replacement System. With the SmartJack along with our CleanSpace encapsulation, SmartSump and SaniDry dehumidifier this home will have sturdy new posts and a dry crawl space that will last for many years.
This homeowner was having problems with water intrusion in his finished basement. Our inspector Bob suggested installing our ThermalDry Walls, our patented WaterGuard drainage system, and a TripleSafe sump pump.
Pedro and his team quickly set out to stop the water intrusion in Travis's basement. They installed ThermalDry walls, a flexible material placed over the concrete walls that drains wall seepage into the perimeter drain. The Waterguard perimeter drain system collects wall seepage from the ThermalDry walls and directs the water to the TripleSafe sump pump that the team installed. The TripleSafe sump pump is the most reliable, three- pump system that works even when there is a power outage.
After our systems were in place, Travis no longer has water intrusion issues and now has a beautiful and usable basement.
This home had water entering through the exterior stairwell entrance to the basement, and out of concern, the homeowner contacted John's Waterproofing. Our inspector, Bob suggested installing a Trench Drain with a Waterguard perimeter drain. Delfino and his team quickly installed the Trench Drain next to last bottom step. The Trench Drain design prevents water from entering the house and easily connects to the Waterguard sub-floor drainage system. The homeowner no longer worries about water getting into his basement.
This homeowner was concerned about water coming into his basement through the cold joist. Our inspector, Bob confirmed the homeowner's suspicions and came up with a plan to waterproof Kyle's basement. Bob suggested installing Thermal Dry walls, our patented Waterguard perimeter drain and a Super Sump pump.
Ramon and his team immediately began to install our products to waterproof Kyle's basement. They first installed Thermal Dry walls that easily fit over stone or concrete walls. It is designed to reflect heat back into the basement to improve comfort and lower energy costs. The Thermal Dry walls work perfectly with the Waterguard perimeter drain by directing wall seepage into it. Our patented Waterguard system is jackhammered into the perimeter of the foundation to collect the wall seepage and channel it to the sump pump. In Kyle's basement, a Super Sump pump collects all collected water and pumps it out of the basement space. The Super Sump works quietly and efficiently and comes with a built-in alarm system for when water levels get too high.
Now that our systems are in place, Kyle no longer sees water entering into his basement and has a dry, healthy and usable new space.
This building company has worked with us at John's Waterproofing for many years. As they were building this new home they knew that it would be a good idea to begin waterproofing before they finished the home. John's Waterproofing can waterproof basements and crawlspaces whether the home is new construction, in the middle of construction, or finished. Our inspector Carolann knew that for this basement, Paraseal was the best option.
Kent agreed, so Pedro and his team installed it. Paraseal is a waterproofing membrane that is installed around the exterior basement walls before it is backfilled. It is made of expandable, granular bentonite that prevents water from causing major issues in the interior basement walls. Due to the fact that concrete is porous, it allows water to filter in slowly over time. Luckily, with Paraseal as a barrier, it will make a big difference to the structural integrity of the home in the future and is a great product for new construction homes. Kent is grateful for our hard work and knows that the future homeowner will not have to worry about water intrusion for years to come.
