This crawlspace was damp and humid that is the perfect spot for certain plant life, fungus, and mold to grow. This customer luckily only had plants so far, and with our Cleanspace encapsulation system they won’t have to worry about anything else growing down there!

Basement Remodeling in Welches, 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 remodeled 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 Welches 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 basement that lasts a lifetime.

Job Stories From Welches, OR
Tall Crawlspace Used for Storage - Welches, OR

This home had a small basement room with a crawlspace along the hillside. The Crawlspace boasted a generally tall space, and the homeowners used the space for storage. While the home had the basement area waterproofed when it was built, the crawlspace had been overlooked. The homeowners had a simple vapor barrier installed in the space, and the moisture here was causing mold spores to appear on the items in storage, and rips and tears were appearing in the barrier where storage items were frequently moved around. To make this space easier to use and safe for their items, they reached out to John's Waterproofing for a solution. 

To create a safe space that wouldn't succumb to water issues and could remain intact with movement, the homeowners choose our encapsulation option. To begin we cleared out the old vapor barrier, old fiberglass insulation, and debris. We then laid down TerraBlock insulation over the floor to provide proper insulation. We then used CleanSpace to encase the area. This is a 20Mil nylon-reinforced barrier that is accompanied by a twenty-five year warranty against rips and tears, making it a great solution for an area that is still being traversed. We then had our spray foam specialist arrive to insulate all of the foundation walls. The vents were then sealed up and a SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to keep this space dry and healthy. 

Need Clean Crawlspace Storage- Welches, OR

This homeowner contacted John's Waterproofing because they were already using their tall crawlspace for storage but wanted something more durable than black plastic that would protect their things from mold.

Our System Designer showed up at the home and it was clear from the start that he knew what he was doing. He measured the home and inspected the exterior to look for any signs on the outside that could be contributing to the problem. He found the downspouts in good shape and operating as they should so the next was to go with the homeowner into the crawlspace. Due to its generous head space it was ideal for storage, and was being used as such. To ensure that these items would stay dry and healthy the homeowner opted to sign up to get a full encapsulation.

Before we began, the homeowner had cleared the crawlspace of all the items stored to make way for the crew. Our crews then arrived and removed all of the debris, old insulation, and black 6mil vapor barrier.  A perforated pipe drainage system was installed around the perimeter and graded to a TripleSafe Sump pump at the lowest point. TerraBlock was then laid on the dirt floor to aid insulation and also protect the CleanSpace barrier.  All the vents were sealed and the posts isolated. The 20mil nylon-reinforced barrier; CleanSpace, was installed and all seams were sealed and it was run up the walls and fastened under the rim joist. A SaniDry dehumidifier was installed to ensure the humidity was controlled to prevent mold growth and the air was filtered for a healthy home and crawlspace. Finally, a single cell spray foam was applied to the rim joist and foundation walls to bring the insulation to the required R factor for insulating the space. Now the homeowner had a clean and usable storage area and a cleaner and healthier home!

Large Crawlspace Storage is Musty - Welches, OR

This home had a high ceiling in its crawlspace. It still had a dirt floor, and the homeowners didn't want to dig down here to create a basement, however, they did want to waterproof the area and use it for storage space. They had originally laid down some plastic sheets to place storage boxes on, but these showed signs of water mold, upon inspection high humidity was found in the crawlspace, which had led to the mold spores growth. 

Our crew began by cleaning out the debris from under the home. We then installed a SmartSump pump to divert groundwater out and away from the foundation of the home. We then installed our CleanSpace vapor barrier. This is slide under each wooden post, and is anchored along the walls for a watertight seal. To add insulation as well as an air seal the space we used spray foam along the foundation walls. As a final layer of protection, we installed a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier to make this environment dry and healthy. 

High Heating Bills in Welches, OR

The homeowner had an annual issue with their energy bills during the Winter. Initially, they had thought that this was normal for the area since they had snow and ice regularly. But after a few years, they learned theirs was significantly higher than neighbors. After researching ways to lower energy bills, they learned that their crawlspace could be an issue, so they called out John's Waterproofing for help. 

Our crew came out and installed a TripleSafe sump pump to take any groundwater out and away from the foundation of the home. The crawlspace walls then had SilverGlo crawlspace insulation attached. This would reflect any heat back into the crawlspace and regulate the temperatures. Each pier was then lifted up so we could slide in Cleanspace so no water could penetrate the wooden beams. Then the space was fully encased in CleanSpace. We then created custom vent covers to help keep the heat in the crawlspace and added in a new EverLast doorway to help. We also learned their gutter downspout would freeze during the colder months, so we replaced their downspouts with our IceGuard system to help protect the home year-round. 

Saturated Concrete Floor - Welches, OR

The homeowners had a finished basement and hired a local contractor to come and revamp the space with some upgrades. While working, the contractor was removing the old faux wood floor panels and found they had been installed directly over the concrete flooring in the basement. While the finished basement had shown no water damage when the job was taken on, the concrete flooring was completely saturated with water. Had this basement not been getting an upgrade, this could have warped the floor and caused some serious damage to the home. Before continuing work, the contractor called Johns for help, they knew a well installed Waterproofing system would need to be installed before any more updating was done to the space. 

Since the homeowners had already chosen a local contractor to perform the remodel of this space, John's came in to create an unfinished basement so that the contractor could do their work. Once the space was cleared of the flooring and wall coverings, we got to work. We installed ThermalDry Wall Bubble Wrap and Brightwallpanels to all the walls to make sure no water damage could infiltrate the concrete walls. To combat the floor space, we installed a watergaurd pipe along the interior floors and a TripleSafe Sump Pump so the water could be collected and sent away from the homes foundation. 

With the basement fully waterproofed, our crew was done and the local contractor was able to come in and finish the job. The homeowners were lucky that their contractor knew what needed to be done to protect the beautiful work they were able to do, now their basement can be finished and used without worry of water. 

As a note, Johns Waterproofing does offer our Total Basement Finishing package and we will happily waterproof and fully create a usable basement to suit your desires. Most contractors do not do waterproofing, so, if you choose to use another company for your basement finishing needs, please call us first so we can waterproof the area before they come in. Even if we are not finishing the space, we can help protect the investment you are about to make.
