Job Stories From Marion County, OR
Preparing the basement for finishing

This basement was being used by our homeowner as storage and as his workout room. The short, wet, damp environment made it a dreary place that no one wanted to be in. Our crew came in and installed drainage and prepared the basement for it's upcoming facelift.

Wet Crawlspace in Keizer, OR

Oregon is known for its greenery and lush surroundings. They come from our abundance of rain. Every day we go under homes that are hiding little pools and swamps. We went in and installed drainage, a sump pump, and a dehumidifier in order to create a clean dry and usable space.

Wet basement causes issues for the elderly

When we got a call about a leak in a retirement home we knew we had to act fast to get their issue resolved. With most of the residents having some sort of respiratory issue and how susceptible to viruses they are we knew we needed to get out there as soon as possible to prevent any further damage or mold growth which could mean much more than a bad cold to some of these residents. Our inspector Robin was out next day to take a look at the issue. He quickly got a system design drawn up and had our crew out the next day getting it drained and dried out so it was prepped and ready for the other crew to come in and install the system. It took just two days to have our full Watergaurd system installed for a permanent solution to this facility’s’ major issue!

Water Intrusion in Silverton, OR Basement

This homeowner was experiencing water intrusion in their basement, which leads to loss of space that would otherwise be available for usage. After inspection, our inspector, Carolann, suggested installing a SuperSump pump, WaterGuard drain system, and ThermalDry wall system.

Gordon and his team quickly set to work to waterproof Glenn's basement and prevent any further water intrusion. The team installed our patented WaterGuard drain system which collects water from basement walls to the SuperSump pump which pumps the water out of the basement. The team also installed our ThermalDry wall system, which is compatible with the WaterGuard system and serves to drain wall seepage into the drain. ThermalDry wall system also improves comfort and energy efficiency by reflecting heat back into the basement space.

After our systems were in place, Glenn no longer experiences water intrusion. The ThermalDry system provides extra insulation, and WaterGuard keeps his basement dry and healthy.

WaterGuard in Aurora, OR Combination Basement

This homeowner was worried about her older home getting damp, and wanted a way to permanently keep her combination basement dry. Our inspector Kevin suggested installing our patented Cleanspace and Water Guard systems, along with a Triple Safe Sump pump, SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier, and spray foam insulation.


Delfino and his team quickly set out to make Carmen's combination basement waterproof and dry. For the crawlspace section of the combination, the crew first leveled out the dirt in order to maximise air quality and then installed our patented Cleanspace system. Our Cleanspace material is a barrier system with a 25-year warranty that keeps out all moisture and acts as insulation.This prevents unnecessary repairs, creating a healthier living space, and saving money on energy bills.

 In the basement portion, our team installed our patented Water Guard system which is installed within the perimeter of the basement walls. It collects the water entering in from the walls and drains it to the Triple Safe sump pump which pumps the water out of the basement.The crew also installed out SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier which eliminates all moisture in the air, stopping mold growth, musty odors, dust mites, and relieving asthma and allergies. It keeps the home below 55% Relative Humidity, making the space drier and healthier. Spray Foam Insulation was put in, creating an air-tight seal and lowering energy costs.

Once our systems were in place, Carmen no longer worries about a wet combination basement creating an unhealthy environment in her home.

CleanSpace System in Hubbard, OR Crawlspace

Our crews recently went to Hubbard to help a homeowner who was concerned about the amount of water entering into his crawlspace and causing his posts to rot. After inspection, Bryan suggested installing our patented CleanSpace encapsulation system, a new Smart Sump sump pump, and replacement of rotted posts with our Smart Jack system.


Delfino and his team quickly went to work to waterproof Craig's crawlspace by installing our Cleanspace encapsulation system which completely encapsulates the crawlspace, keeping out all moisture and allergens creating a healthier space. The team also installed a Smart Sump sump pump to ensure that any other water in the area is pumped out and kept out of the crawlspace. The old, water damaged posts were replaced with our Smart Jack crawlspace stabilizer which is a high capacity, adjustable steel pier that fixes settling floors.


Craig now has a dry and healthy crawlspace for years to come.

WaterGuard System in St. Paul,OR Basement

Our crews recently inspected a job in St. Paul for a homeowner who was concerned about leaky basement walls that were creating unusable space. Our inspector Larry's solution for waterproofing Paul's basement was installing our patented WaterGuard system, Bright Wall Paneling on the walls, and a new Super Sump sump pump.

Manuel and his team quickly set out to waterproof Paul's basement, and ensure there would be no more water intrusion. The team installed WaterGuard, a perimeter drain system that collects water from leaking basement walls and conducts it to the sump pump. Our Bright Wall Panels were also installed, and it works directly with the perimeter drains by channeling water from the walls into the drain. The panels leave the damp, ugly walls bright and beautiful and never need paint or other maintenance. The team also put in a Super Sump sump pump that comes with all the amenities a sump pump can offer: a superliner, floor drain, alarm system, and an airtight cover lid that keeps out insects, odors, and radon gas.

Paul now has a dry and healthy basement for years to come, without concern over water intrusion causing unusable space.

Clean Space Encapsulation in Detroit, OR

Recently, our crews went on a job to Detroit to help a homeowner that was concerned about water intrusion in her crawlspace. After inspection, Jacob suggested installing our patented CleanSpace encapsulation system, Smart Jack stabilizing piers, and a Triple Safe sump pump.

Aaron and his team quickly set out to waterproof Denise's crawlspace and ensure that there would be no more water intrusion. The team first installed our patented CleanSpace encapsulation system that improves home comfort and energy efficiency while keeping out all moisture, outside air, and pests from getting into the crawlspace. When installed by John's Waterproofing, it comes with a 25-year warranty. The old posts were damaged by water and causing uneven floors, so our team replaced them with the Smart Jack stabilizers, adjustable steel piers that are designed to stop settling and can raise sagging floors to a proper level. A Triple Safe sump pump was also installed. It is a three-pump system that adjusts automatically to meet pumping requirements and continues to pump when the power goes out.

Denise now has a dry and healthy crawlspace for years to come!

No More Water Intrusion for Crawlspace in Gervais

A homeowner had called with complaints of water intrusion in their crawlspace. Our crews went out to the home in Gervais to figure out the best solution. Our teams replaced the vapor barrier in the crawlspace to prevent moisture in the air from creating mold issues. A SmartSump was also installed in the crawlspace to make sure there are no future problems caused by plumbing leaks. In the event of a plumbing leak, the built-in alarm system in the SmartSump sump pump will alert the homeowners to the problem. The SmartSump will also drain away the water from the plumbing leak until the problem is fixed. Now the customers have a dry, healthy crawlspace and peace of mind.

Thermal Dry Flooring in Mehama, OR

This homeowner was ready to finish his basement and called John's Waterproofing to see what our flooring options were. He was looking to make sure that any flooring he had would be protected from water and John's Waterproofing had the perfect solution: Thermal Dry Flooring. We have several options for waterproof flooring: tiles that come in carpet, tile and wood looks, as well as elite plank flooring with the look of light pecan and dark walnut wood.


The homeowner chose the beautiful Thermal Dry Elite Plank Flooring in light pecan and AJ and his team set out to finish Larry's basement. The Thermal Dry planks are long, modular planks that lock together and have raised pegs underneath that suspend them above the cold, hard and damp concrete floor. Water vapor will not get trapped underneath the finished flooring, and if there is a leak the Thermal Dry Elite Plank floors can be easily removed, dried out and reinstalled without the need for replacement of the plank.


Larry is extremely satisfied with his new finished basement and is grateful that he does not need to think about water leaking into his new space.

Vapor Barrier in Woodburn, OR Crawlspace

This homeowner was preparing to sell his mother's home and needed a new vapor barrier. Oregon code requires that crawlspaces have some sort of vapor barrier down to meet standards. He called John's Waterproofing to help him ensure that the sale of the home would be smoother with the new barrier. Jack, Ramon, and thier team worked together to plan, and install the layout of the new 6 mil vapor barrier.

The home was sold, and Kris was grateful that our team at John's Waterproofing could help him out.

Odors Coming from Salem, OR Crawlspace

This homeowner called John's Waterproofing because she felt like 'fishy' odors were coming from her crawlspace. She was worried about dead rodents and other issues that might be causing the smell. Upon inspection, our inspector Daniel found that there was evidence of mice from the droppings, and water intrusion that was contributing the odors that the homeowner was experiencing. Daniel suggested that we install our patented Cleanspace encapsulation system, spray foam insulation, and a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier.

Karen agreed to our suggestions and Ramon and his team began installing our systems. They removed the old fiberglass insulation because fiberglass retains moisture, and replaced it with Spray Foam insulation on the walls of the crawlspace. Spray Foam is closed celled which means that it will not allow for moisture and we put it on the walls because it works more effectively than it would underneath the floors by working with the Cleanspace system. They installed Cleanspace over the floors and walls, completely encapsulating the space from exterior effects. It blocks out cold drafts, keeps out all moisture/water, and is patented against rodents and insects. Cleanspace is a super durable, 20 mil thick polyethylene composition that when installed by John's Waterproofing, comes with a 25-year warranty. Because we sealed off the vents with the encapsulation system, we needed to install a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to make it a controlled environment. The SaniDry Sedona is the most efficient dehumidifier that stops mold, mildew, and odors while cleaning and filtering the air in a highly energy efficient way.

Karen is very happy with her new system and no longer worries about rodents or moisture causing odors in her house. She is grateful to have the extra structural protection as well.

BrightWall Paneling in Mount Angel, OR Basement

This homeowner had had water intrusion issues in his basement for years and finally decided that it needed professional attention. For many years he was just patching certain areas with more concrete, and although he had well intentions, this system is not effective. Water will find other ways to get into the basement, and covering a certain spot will only lead it to the water seeking a less resistant area. Our inspectors Carolann and Vince checked Scott's basement and suggested that he have us install BrightWall Panels, our patented Waterguard perimeter drain, and a Triple Safe sump pump.

Scott liked our suggestions, so Ramon led a team and they installed BrightWall panels. Bright Wall is a vapor barrier that prevents water from entering the basement by channeling wall seepage into the perimeter drain. Bright Walls never need paint or other maintenance. It is stain-resistant and easy to clean. The Waterguard drain collects water from the walls and floor and directs it to the Triple Safe sump pump. The Triple Safe is a three-pump system that is the most reliable. Its battery powered pump protects from flooding during power outages.

Scott now has a clean, dry and usable new basement space.

Cleanspace Walls in Stayton, OR Basement

This homeowner found us online because when it rained, water would get into her basement through the front porch of the house. She set up an inspection with us, and Carolann came out to take a look. Carolann determined that the water was, in fact, coming in from all of the walls, but the front was especially bad. She recommended that we install Cleanspace walls, our patented Waterguard perimeter drain, and a Super Sump pump.

Roberta consented to our suggestions and Manuel and his team quickly went to work. They installed the Cleanspace walls which capture and direct wall seepage/leaks into the perimeter drain. Cleanspace walls are maintenance free, and look bright and beautiful once in place. The Waterguard perimeter drain was installed around the perimeter of the basement to collect wall and floor seepage and direct it to the Super Sump pump. The Super Sump pump can remove up to 2,650 gallons of water per hour while working smoothly and quietly. 

With our systems all working together, Roberta now has a dry, healthy and usable basement once again.

Prepping a Basement for finishing

This home had water coming into the back part of their basement, the homeowners had already finished the front part and were eager to get the back part finished as well, but they knew they couldn't finish it without fixing the water issue first. So they called us out to give them a permanent solution to their water issues. We installed our basement waterproofing system which included an interior perimeter drain system called waterguard, sump pump called the super sump, that is rated one of the top sump pumps in the industry right now and Thermaldry Basement wall system which helps act as a moisture barrier and insulation to keep the basement comfortable. Now, this dry basement is ready to be transformed into a dry storage area to protect the precious memories that are stored down there and a comfortable space for them to make new memories in!

Muddy Crawlspace to Encapsulated in Mt Angel

Water was getting into the crawlspace and the homeowner wanted to look into waterproofing options. Our inspector Brandon went out and recommended a crawlspace encapsulation.  We installed a smart sump pump to pump out water thru a new discharge line far away from the home. Along with our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier that cleans the air of mold spores and dust all while keeping the humidity down avoiding moisture in the crawlspace. We installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier and insulated it with our spray foam insulation. The homeowner was so happy that she doesn't have to worry about water in her crawlspace again.

Basement Drainage in Salem

This homeowner had just purchased an older home that they fell in love with. Everything was perfect except the basement, it had water leaking in the window and causing moisture problems. There was damage to the basement walls with cracking and some mold damage. Our crews went in and installed our WaterGuard system that goes along the basement wall and goes unseen. The water then drains into the TripleSafe sump pump, it is a three pump system that works together depending on the amount of water draining. The third pump is also battery operated that will run in case of a power outage preventing water damage. We also installed a well duct under the window that drains the water into the WaterGuard system. After getting a proper drainage system we installed our ThermalDry wall that helps insulate and keep the basement warm. It is also made of an inorganic material so it can't have water damage or moisture build up. This customer was so happy that they were on their way to have the perfect new home and not have to worry about a leaking basement. 

Moisture Buildup in Crawlspace; Salem, OR

Terri and Bill had had AirServ come and inspect their basement for the moisture that was starting to build in the crawl space. He recommend they call us to get our opinion upon finding water buildup on the walls themselves along with the vapor barrier having small puddles. 

Daniel went out and found that the crawlspace wasn't in the worst of shapes, but it definitely needed work done. So Luis G went down and dried out the space so that his crew to set out to work. They tore out all the insulation due to it being wet, and all of the old vapor barrier. To replace the barrier they installed Terra Block, a 3/4" foam insulation liner. On top of that they installed the 20 mil seven-ply liner. Encasing the entire space to ensure a tight seal.

They also had the SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier installed, which will regulate temperatures and pull any unwanted moisture from the air. To ensure the longevity of the crawlspace, they had the Smart Sump pump installed. So that any collected water gets pumped out.


Fernando finished the job by using the Spray Foam insulation to completely sealing the crawlspace from any form of leaks and drafts. 

The couple couldn't have been happier. We managed to finish the job and leave the area cleaner then when we came in originally.

Bright Wall Finishing; Salem, OR

The customer had called for us to take his drab basement and make it fab. They wanted something to brighten the space and to waterproof it. 

Our crew went out and started the process by digging a trench along the parameter of the basement. In the trench they placed the WaterGuard to collect the water. Which carries it to the Super Sump pump. To then be discharged from the basement entirely. To complete the basement waterproofing system they installed BrightWall paneling to cover all the concrete walls. With a quarter of an inch between the panels and the wall, it creates a channel to the WaterGuard

The customer was happy to find that the crew had also put all of their shelving back into place. Without being asked, and making sure to not damage anything while moving the storage back into place. 

Unusable to Storage Savvy Basement; Salem, OR

Customer called to have their partially finished basement waterproofed and finally completed. 

Lupe and his crew first dug out the trench for the WaterGuard. Ensuring that when they laid it into place the flanges were flush to the wall. So that if water were to start seeping out from the walls, it will go directly into the WaterGuard. To then be pushed through the SuperSump pump they installed. To connect and complete the waterproofing system, they then connected the WaterGuard and SuperSump pump. Lastly, they installed the Discharge Pipeline to discretely take the water out of the space. 

To help give the basement a clean and welcoming environment, they had us come out to assist. Manuel H and his crew went out and installed the BrightWall panels. Which work best when paired with the WaterGuard. As it sits a quarter of an inch away from where the flanges sit. To give the water space to still trickle into the waterproofing system with ease. 

The customer was very pleased to see that it was a great start for turning the unusable space into a great storage location. 

Construction Encapsulation; Silverton, OR

The customer is a contractor that was working on a client home, and they needed a partial encapsulation. They had a daylight basement with a crawl space behind the wall for the basement. 

We set out an appointment as soon as possible so that the client could move into the home sooner rather than later. We installed the basics of encapsulation, the TerraBlock first, and then over that we laid down the 20 mil CleanSpace to seal the water in the soil. In the basement, they had the SaniDry XP hooked up. To help alleviate the humidity levels, and to eliminate any of the musty smells that may be emitting from the crawl space. 

Leaving the contractor and their client with peace of mind knowing that the crawl space will stay dry. ANd that any odd odors and mold will not be a problem anymore. 

Finished Basement Sprouted a Leak; Salem, OR

The Burnhams called due to their finished basement sprouting a leak and destroying their flooring and walls. Daniel found that it was a simple job to fix. They needed a drainage system and fast. 

They had to demolish quite a few walls so that they could install the Thermal Drywall inside the walls for a thermal break. So that when condensation started to buildup it had somewhere else to go. To create a perfect duo with this product, we also suggested they install WaterGuard. Which is a type of drain, that sits under the concrete along the basement walls. 

The WaterGuard will then drain the water to the SuperSump pump and be expelled off the property completely. Making it a quick and easy fix for the customers, and the crews. Giving the customer the satisfaction of having their basement back. 

Crawlspace Make over in Keizer, OR

These homeowners had been using this home as a rental and were ready to settle for retirement to return home. After the renters had moved out they noticed that the home had a weird smell constantly in it and the heater always was running. They weren't sure what the issue was but found us and decided to give us a call for an inspection. 

Upon inspection, our inspector found that rodents were getting into the crawlspace. The rodents had ruined the fiberglass insulation and it was hanging down. There was also some standing water in parts of the crawlspace due to high humidity levels causing moisture build up. Our inspector recommended that we do a complete crawlspace clean out and install our Cleanspace encapsulation system. The crews first cleaned out all the debris, old torn vapor barrier, and removed all the sagging fiberglass insulation. After we had the crawlspace cleaned we put down our Terra Block crawlspace insulation that goes on the dirt floor below the vapor barrier. We seal each vent and place a nice airtight vent covers over each one. We install our CleanSpace vapor barrier that is 20 mils thick and rip resistant. Which will help a lot since rodents were known to get into this crawlspace and cause damage. After everything is sealed we use our spray foam insulation around the parameter walls to give more coverage. Due to some moisture, our crew also installed our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier that is perfect for the crawlspace to keep moisture out and cycle clean air up thru the home. 

The homeowners were so relieved that they didn't need to worry about their crawlspace anymore. That they were breathing in clean air and after a couple of days the musty smell left the home completely. Along with encapsulating your crawlspace, they will start to see a decrease in their heating and cooling bill. Air is no longer escaping out of the crawlspace now with proper insulation and sealed. 

Making a healthy crawlspace in Salem, OR

After seeing our crew trucks at her neighbor home for a few days she asked her neighbor about their experience. Seeing how happy they were with the job and not knowing if she had the same water problem as her neighbors she gave us a call for a free inspection. When our inspector went out he found huge puddles along the perimeter walls of the crawlspace. In some sections having a couple of inches of water sitting. He recommended a crawlspace encapsulation system with drainage. 

Our crews went out and removed the old vapor barrier, fiberglass insulation, and all other organic material.  We installed drainage with our Ultra Sump pump that works really well for a crawlspace. After getting drainage in place our crew laid down our Terrablock that is a 3/4/ inch foam block that works as insulation. It is waterproof and will not come apart when in contact with water. It also gives a cushioned floor for anyone person needing to work in the crawlspace. Our CleanSpace vapor barrier lays over it and is mils thick made of woven fiber plastic. It is made to withstand pests trying to come in and other ailments. Our crew seal the vents shut so that air cannot get in or out. Since this crawlspace was susceptible to moisture we installed our SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier that removes moisture from the crawlspace along with dust mites, mold spores, and other allergens. 


This homeowner was so glad she had called just like her neighbors. The water was gone and she now had a healthy crawlspace protecting the foundation of her home. 

CleanSpace, Keizer, OR

We have a customer named Art in Keizer, OR who called in one day with concerns about moisture in his crawl space and was worried that with the heavy rains, and not maintaining his crawl space that there might be some damage to his structure. This is just the sort of thing that John's Waterproofing specializes in so we were hap[py to help. We sent out our Design Specialist Vinnie B. out to take a look. Vinnie crawled underneath Art's house and did see there was some water damage to the posts supporting Art's home and found some mold. 

The project was scheduled quickly and we had Fernando H. and Delfino G. go out to fix the issues. They were quickly able to repair the water damage to the posts and did a full encapsulation of the crawl space for Art. The whole job was completed within just a few days. Art was thoroughly impressed and was delighted to know that he no longer has to worry about any further moisture coming into his crawl space or affecting the integrity of his structure. He also knows that he can call John's at any time with any concerns he might have and that our crews will be out once a year to maintain his crawl space so he doesn't have to. As always, we were happy to help. 

Soggy Crawl Space, Keizer, OR

Darryl gave us a call here at John's Waterproofing because he had seen that there were some definite signs of water in his crawl space and noticed some soggy, sagging insulation. Darryl suffers from some respiratory issues and was concerned about his health and the health of the air coming into his home. Did you know that half of the air on the first level of your home comes from underneath your house? Darryl knows this and how important it is to have clean air. 

Daniel M, one of our Design Specialists went out to Darryl's home and inspected the state of the crawl space. He did see puddles water here and there and there was sagging insulation that had become waterlogged. Our Foreman Gordon W. took his crew out and they got to work on cleaning out all of the old material and equipment that wasn't working properly. They put in a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier which eliminates all moisture. They then installed a SnaiDry Sedona Smart Sump pump, repaired some damage to the posts caused by water and then did a full encapsulation of the crawl space using the CleanSpace material and added some Spray Foam to the walls of the crawl space. 

Now no air comes into the crawl space or gets trapped in there. And Darryl now has only clean air coming into his home. Darryl says that his breathing has improved and he is happy knowing that his crawl space is guaranteed for many years. And is helping him save on his energy bill.  

Drainage Save, Salem, OR

Brian saw our trucks while he was out in Salem, OR and decidec to give us a call because he had some drainage issues with some flooding outside that was coming into his garage and basement and wanted to see what could be done. Our Design Specialist Sean went out an assesed the situation and told Brian that he thought a new discharge line and trench would be a good idea along with a French Drain. Foreman Ramon and his crew were out shortly after and in just a few days they had the dain issues addressed, and redirected to flow away from the home. Installed a French Drain and now Brian is happy that he has a well functioning system and a dry garage and basement. One more happy customer for John's Waterproofing Company. 

CleanSapce in Salem, OR

John and Toni in Salem Oregon were looking online for some help with their crawl space that they had noticed some water had gotten in. They were concerned with water damage and mold. We were contacted through Home Advisor and we gladly called and got them on the schedule with Sean, our Design Specialist.  Sean went and crawled their crawl space and did find some water issues and that the crawl space definitely needed some attention. He suggested a CleanSpace encapsulation, John and Toni agreed and we got the project scheduled for a time that worked best for them. Manuel H. took his crew out and they started the CleanSpace process. First, all of the older materials and debris were removed. They then installed a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to stop any moisture from getting into the space. Some minor repairs were done to the posts that had the beginning signs of moisture damage and then applied the CleanSpace material which will keep the crawl space clean and dry for many years. Foreman, Fernando H. was then out with his crew to finish the project with Spray Foam insulation which helps the customer save on their energy consumption by up to 33%. John and Toni are thrilled that they now have a healthy crawl space and they no longer have any worries. 

CleanSpace save in Vancouver, WA

Ken in Vancouver, Washington was walking through a Home and Garden Show and came across the John's Waterproofing booth which reminded him that he had been concerned about the health of his crawl space. He had recently been down there and noticed that it was quite dirty, the black plastic had been torn in some spots and was worried that some water damage might have gotten into the support posts underneath his house. 

Aimee was working the booth that weekend and took down his information. She explained the benefits of encapsulating his crawl space with the CleanSpace vapor barrier and what John's Waterproofing could do for him. Ken gave Aimee his information and the next week Kayla called Ken and set up a time to have Carolann, our Design Specialist come out to take a look. She did find a very dirty crawl space and they both agreed that a full encapsulation with CleanSpace would be the best option for Ken. 

In just a few days Foreman, Gordan and his crews were out to Ken's house to get started. In no time they had the crawlspace cleaned out and did the repairs necessary to the support posts. They put in a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to stop any moisture. They then installed the CleanSpace vapor barrier which outperforms the thin old liner used in most crawl spaces. A SaniDry SmartSump was also put in to pump out any additional water that might try and come in and seals to the CleanSapce. 

Ken now a healthy, dry crawl space that he doesn't have to worry about. And Ken is relieved to know that we here at John's Waterproofing will be out yearly to maintain his crawl space for him.

Crawlspace Makeover in Salem Oregon

When our inspector Vincent Birchall came out to the home, he found puddles of water on the vapor barrier and puddles of standing water with a five-gallon bucket with a pump in it attempting to keep the water out. Vincent provided them with a quote to solve their water issues and leave them with a beautiful space. 

First, our crews went through the process of drying out all of the standing, stagnant water. After this, they removed all of the debris and the old insulation. Leaving them with a blank canvas. Our crew replaced several rotted wooden posts, created a beautiful exterior entry to the crawlspace, and then set to work on the inside of the crawlspace. 

They installed our patented Smart Sump Pump to make sure the water stays out. and then they installed our Terra Block system prior to encapsulating the space with our stunning CleanSpace material. We finished the space with a dehumidifier to protect the home and make it look gorgeous!

Dan had purchased his home a few years ago that had previously had some issues with rodents and moisture in the crawl space. He removed the insulation and the vapor barrier and sanitized the area hoping that would help but he still found he was having some rodents find their way in. He saw one of the ads for John's Waterproofing on TV and gave us a call because he was curious about the encapsulating process. We set Dan up with an appointment with Jacob who went out and crawled the crawl space and went over the process and benefits of doing a full encapsulation. Encapsulating your crawl space seals all of the vents and possible entryways while keeping your crawl space cool and dry for a very long time. Dan thought this was a great idea and in no time at all we had a crew come out to start the process. 

The crawl space was cleaned out a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was put in to eliminate the moisture in the air, installed a SmartSump pump system, installed the antimicrobial CleanSpace vapor barrier that is guaranteed to keep the crawl space clean and dry and then finished with Spray Foam insulation. All of these together provide Dan with a rodent-free crawl space and with a properly functioning system he is also consuming less energy.   

We here at John's Waterproofing like our customers to be happy and we are always here to help you with your waterproofing needs. 

New vapor barrier in Keizer Oregon

This homeowner in Keizer Oregon called because she was afraid that she may have water in her crawlspace, but she wanted to be sure and handle it quickly if she did. Our inspector Vincent Birchall provided her with a free inspection and did confirm for her that she did, in fact, have puddles of water, eroding posts, and mold in the beams of her home. He provided her a written estimate to solve the problem which she quickly accepted. 

Gordon and his team were given the job of turning this scary space into a cozy place. They removed the old vapor barrier and ripped fiberglass insulation as well as replaced the molded and rotting posts scattered through the foundation. They then installed a perimeter drain, a sump pump, a dehumidifier, and our patented CleanSpace vapor barrier. Fernando finished the space with our spray foam perimeter insulation ensuring a warmer and more comfortable home for decades to come.

Clean Crawl Space, Keizer, OR

When Martha found out that her respiratory issues were because of mold she knew she needed to make sure there was no mold in her home. That's when she called for a free inspection of her crawl space with Vincent who did find standing water in places and some mold forming. Shortly after Tim took his crew out to her house, cleaned out all of the old materials, found where the water was coming in at, installed a sump pump, and did an encapsulation. 

Encapsulating your crawl space seals off all of the vents eliminating the chances of dust mites, moisture, allergens, and bacteria to form. Giving you a dry, clean crawl space for a very long time, which also means cleaner air entering your home. 

Martha is very happy with the results. She is definitely happier having the peace of mind knowing that she is breathing cleaner air. We are always happy to help here at John's Waterproofing.
