    Customer Testimonial

              I have been completely impressed with how everyone at Rainy Day has communicated with us about everything they planned to do. From the first sales call until the final day of work. Everyone went out of there way to make sure we knew what to expect next. The operations manager came out at the beginning of the project, and a job this big is definitely a project and went over the work one more time and gave us a rough schedule on when they expected to get the work done. He also kept us updated on the crews schedule on a daily basis because they were facing some unexpected weather challenges due to snow in the area. We had a couple of crews involved in the project and the foremen of each crew made sure we knew just what they were going to be doing that day when they arrived and then what they had accomplished just before they left in the evening. The only thing I would like to see is to have the operations manager come by one last time after the work was completed and inspect the final installation. I recently had a new roof put on by a small roofing company in the area and after the job was completed the owner of the company came out and inspected the work and found a few (very few) items he thought needed correction and had someone come out and fix them. I really appreciated that extra care since I am far from an expert on roofing. The same applies here with the crawlspace and the Rainy Day material. I'm far from being an expert on this part of our home so one last look at the work by someone who is would be awesome. Bottom line is I think the system should be very helpful in controlling both moisture in the crawlspace and therefore the house and in controlling rodents that are a constant issue when you live in a rural area with woods and fields surrounding the house.

    Customer Testimonial

              I want to thank Rainy Day Basements for a great job on my really old crawl space. I own a 1902 Victorian in Snohomish oldtown and when I bought the place, my inspector came up from the crawl space and told me "I would not buy this place." It was a disaster down there. After going ahead with the purchase, we got several quotes for crawl space cleanups and other services. The one that kept us thinking (and frankly kept us up at night) was the "full crawl space encapsulation" quote from Rainy Day. It sounded like the most expensive option but also sounded like it would be one of the best investments we made in our house. If the part of the house that the rest of the house is built upon isn't healthy, then what do you really have? We decided to go ahead with the full encapsulation. We want to thank Ed for taking the extra time with us to run through the options (including working with us on the cost estimate) and to understand the science and the "why" behind what we were doing. Then Kevin, Wyatt and his crew came and knocked out a beautiful job. I am not kidding when I say that I could eat off the floor of my 1902 crawl space now. This system is solid and will protect my home and help us with improved air quality in our home from here on out. Rainy Day did everything promised and never made us doubt our investment. Those guys work really hard to do what they do. We look forward to having them come back annually to take a look at their work and make sure all things are in good working order.When I go to sell this house, I promise you that at least one photo of this beautiful crawl space will be a part of the photos that will sell this house in a single day!!Thank you, Your friends in Snohomish in oldtown!!

              Wyatt and the installation crew were on-time and polite. The office staff, Niki and Jessica, answered and provided follow-up calls in a timely manner. The knowledge and presentation, along with the superior products, are why I chose to work with Rainy Day over a different contractor.

    Customer Testimonial

              Wyatt & the installation crew were very responsive to our questions, courteous, and thorough. We had previous experience with encapsulation that motivated us to want a system for our house here. Rainy Day presented the background material and explanation of CleanSpace clearly. Very satisfied with the system, it is working unobtrusively and quietly. House seems quieter with less dust. Jean-Paul had a good presentation of all options so we could choose what would work for us.

              A job well done needs a note of praise! How fortunate you are as an employer to have Wyatt and Tyler on your staff. They are dedicated, professional, conscientious workers. Their goal seems to be not only to please the client but also to have the satisfaction of a job well done. Wyatt & Tyler are both gold stars, and the office staff was also courteous & responsive.

    Fixing Water in Crawlspace, Stanwood, WA

    Al & Anna of Stanwood, WA, reached out to Rainy Day because they found water seeping in under their home. Our specialist, Ed Upenieks, visited the family for a free in-home inspection and estimate to determine a permanent solution to their leaking crawlspace.

    For this project, we installed our highly-efficient TripleSafe sump pump system. This incredible sump system offers three pumps in one. One pump in itself can handle up to 2,600 gallons of water per hour. That is the equivalent of nearly eight fully-filled hot tubs! With the second pump, there is an added ½ HP to operate if the first pump fails, or if greater pumping volume is needed. The third pump is a battery-operated pump that will turn on during a power failure automatically.

    The result is a completely dry, beautiful, and worry-free crawlspace.
