Reviews in Portland to Encapsulate Crawl Spaces

Josh Lowe's Dr Energy Saver
1.0
This company (Dr. Energy) is fine if you don’t mind doing your own research, arguing with them over what was agreed to, and paying for extra charges after the fact. I almost didn’t write this review because they did ultimately take care of the crawl space encapsulation and repair of furnace ductwork. But when I found out they wanted to charge an increased fee again, I decided to share our experience. First, there was a lot of discussion and miscommunication about what was happening. They didn’t complete the project during their expected time period (despite just not showing up one Friday) so they wanted to schedule to finish more than a month later. They thought the sump pump was installed despite us telling us it wasn’t. Then were surprised when a different person came to our house and found out it wasn’t installed, as we were telling them. They told us they would install the encapsulation in a way that water would drain out of the enclosed plastic if there was a pipe leak (I asked them about this before selecting this company after a different company pointed out that it was important to assure the enclosed space does not become a swimming pool with leaking pipes). After many emails, calls, and threats, they finally sent a person who figured out how to do what was promised. They told us the heating ducts would be repaired under the cost but then wanted to charge us more to do this. Finally, although the project clearly doesn’t look like what was done by John’s Waterproofing (the cement and beams are completely covered in a friend’s home done by them), which may be fine, they didn’t cover the outside vents which are shown in their promotional material (and routinely done by others). When we called to ask about this, they said this wasn’t included, and we would be charged even more. Overall it was a very frustrating experience on so many levels.

It went very well from first contact to completion. All of the staff we had contact with were professional and able to explain all they did. We feel very secure with the work.

John's Waterproofing

I had 4 bids on the job, Johns was middle of the road pricing, they were recommended so I went with them. They did the job in one day, cleaned up pretty well, had some damage on the trim after they were done, overall they did an above average job.

John's Waterproofing
4.0
Initial installation had poor workmanship: broken sump cover, improperly installed vent covers, poorly taped vapor barrier. I was surprised as I had checked references, the CCB, etc. While I would have liked it done right the first time, even good companies can mess up, and John's Waterproofing did rectify all the problems. I also wound up not using the vent covers. I would suggest that customers clarify how workers will handle obstacles in the crawl (support posts, grade changes, piping) when installing the vapor barrier. Also, be aware that humidity control may still be necessary after installation. Note: while I rate the initial installation as "FAIR", the follow-up work was quite "GOOD".

They did the job on time and to specifications. Did exactly what was quoted on the estimate with no delays or surprises.

It took their crew of three 5 whole days to finish the job and they did an excellent job at that. Considering that they didn't have much room to work in, I think they worked very fast. Now our humidity level is usually under 50% and no more of that musty smell in the crawl space or in the house. The various insects that used to make their way into our house have also declined, and added bonus that I didn't think of! A week after they had finished, I went down and crawled every square inch of the crawl space to check their work. I had found a couple of spots where the liner had pulled away from the pillar. I called to see if they could send someone out to fix this and they had scheduled a follow up within a week. Now it is a pleasure to go down into the crawl space to get some work done - I'm installing new phone and coax cables throughout.

A contractor broke a pipe in my crawl space, and B&G was able to get here in about 30 minutes and repair the pipe very quickly. They are so responsive and so professional. This is my second plumbing emergency with them, and I would recommend them to anyway. Bobo, the owner, talked me though turning off the gas to my hot water heater over the phone and verified that I had turned off the mail water correctly. They are truly a professional organization. They also send a restoration crew to address the water damage. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Bloom Pest Control and Home Services
5.0
We bought a 1964 home with a wet crawl space and the inspectors said it was normal for Oregon. We knew there was a sump pump but it was one of those things you want to shut the trap door on and ignore. Several years later I opened the door to peek and you could have floated a kayak down there. We had also noticed rats blatantly sitting around our home foundation with baby rats by their sides. Having had bad experiences with contractors in the past, we prepared ourselves for a horrible and very expensive service. We got 4 bids and Blooms was by far the lowest. The young men were friendly, up front about the problems and didn’t try to oversell. They simply wowed us! They had to crawl around in about a foot of wet mud after draining two separate crawl spaces, install blowers to dry the spaces out, and bring in multiple bags of heavy river rock, piping, and new sump pumps. They did it all without getting a speck of dirt anywhere! Each day they laid down plastic walkways and took them back up and cleaned everything. We couldn’t even tell if they had been there and felt safe leaving them a key to our home without us there. The office was very communicative daily and everything was on schedule as promised. I have never had a better experience and they solved a very anxiety-provoking problem. Rats and water are gone, two working dumps beautifully integrated into underground piping, and a bill about 40% less than the other bidders. Professional, efficient, clean and just really nice group of young men. This was by far the best experience we ever had with any home repair/contractors. I recommend them to anyone who needs crawl space work!

Oregon Restoration Co.

I had the pleasure of working with Oregon Restoration while purchasing my new home. While working in the crawl space, a rather extensive amount of mold was found and I honestly had a few days of panic. However I called Oregon Restoration and Ryan and his crew were so reassuring, they were quick to come over and assess the situation. The clean up job they did was phenomenal! You cannot tell there was ever any mold at all. All staining is gone. When I had the air quality tested after the treatment (since I have a baby) the samples inside the house were lower than the ambient outside readings. I cannot say enough good things about this company. They were always willing to discuss the job with me and to answer any questions that I had. They were patient, reassuring and their work was excellent! I will be recommending them every chance I get.

Recent Review: There were a few issues at first but the company was very responsive and fixed the issues at no additional cost to me. To be fair some of the problems were caused by the electrician that I hired independent from Dr. Crawlspace. Although the initial sump pump failure was caused due to a minor training error, the subsequent sump pump failure was an electrician error. The company was very flexible in terms of scheduling and arrived on time. I feel like the price for their services was very fair and would hire them again. They even sent me a gift card for the inconvenience.

Recent Review: Very well. Zezar checked to make sure that the job was going well and that all my questions were answered. Also, I notice that my downstairs is now warmer and I very much appreciate that! All in all, they did an excellent job and I highly recommend them.

Recent Review: I called to get an inspection of my crawl space, I was concerned about some water when we had the heavy rains in Feb. The inspector came out and did an extensive inspection. He told me that someday I would have to have the vapor barrier replaced that the small amount of water I saw was normal. He also showed me where to install some vent wells to minimize the chance of water getting into the crawl space. He also recommended a service to have my down spouts "scoped". It was a pleasure dealing with a competent professional that did not recommend unneeded work. I was very impressed and will call M Leon the next time I need this type of service.

Recent Review: Asher came out to estimate and inspect the smelly crawlspace. He showed us many photos showing how bad the problem was, and skillfully explained the company philosophy of rat control, directly tied into the science of rat behavior. These people are very educated on crawlspace science as well as rodent issues and how to properly deal with them. Unfortunately, it's impossible to recover from rats in one day. It takes at least a month of baiting and training the rats to effectively repel/remove/kill them all. After a month, the team came back and removed all 6 moisture barriers, insulation, ducts and scads of dead rats. They thoroughly cleaned the crawlspace, replaced the moisture barrier, reinstalled the sump pump (the rats had chewed the wires) and installed clean new insulated ducts. We previously had estimates from several crawlspace companies (Crawlpro and John's Waterproofing) that were wanting to clean up the crawlspace and replace it without dealing with the rat problem. John's Waterproofing wanted to encapsulate the entire crawlspace to the tune of $16K, with no plan for the rats, even though there were tunnels along the sewer line bringing a steady stream of the nasty rodents. GetSmart will guarantee no more rat intrusions for as long as you own the house (with regular inspections) They charged $600 to eradicate the rats, and $9000 to rebuild the crawlspace.
