    Dan did a great job explaining the system along with the different options. We knew right upfront what the final price would be so there were no surprises.

    Thanks, Dan, Tom, Jerry, Nate and all the other crew members who worked on our basement and crawl space. No more musty smells!! We appreciated the hard work and the little extras along the way, like hauling out the old ceiling insulation. Pkus, the Therma-floor looks like it's going to work great, and makes the basement warmer already.

    Dan please convey our thanks for all their hard work. It has lifted the stress that we have had in regards to our crawl space. It is a place that we actually want to go to now. We will be fixing all of our communication wiring in the near future due to the cleanliness and comfort of the crawl space.

              We were very pleased with the crew. Jerry had a “teacher’s heart” as he explained everything to me. He was very knowledgeable. Also, I was thrilled that they went above and beyond what was contracted in helping me design and dig the outlet trench. Dan you run a fantastic operation! Thanks!!!

    Customer Testimonial

              Dan Malsh and his crew are top-of-the-line. The interior of our crawl was choked with footless concrete foundations poured in the 1940's. Subsequent remodels added a few more. All were cracked and sinking--leaving leaving the floors tilted and waffled. Dan offered several repair options and we found some that reasonably met our budget. We chose to have those walls demolished and removed. A huge effort! Our home is now rock solid. Special mention to Jerry Soto and the crew (Martine, Arturo, Eric, Nate, etc.) for their ethics, dedication and pride of workmanship. Jerry kept me well-informed and was a wealth of knowledge not only of his trade but of related crafts. Worry not about this work group. They are among the best.

              Very satisfied. Dan was the salesman - excellent, honest and detailed what we did and did not need. Dan was the only contractor to explain that we did not need the piers only SmartJacks. Professional, punctual, courteous, hard-working.

    Customer Testimonial

              Completely satisfied – and very pleased. Dan insisted on being complete, so we understood the problem fully. We thought we had a mold problem – and definitely had a smelly basement (in the house we had just purchased). The photos that Nathan took showed that we also had rats in the crawl space. Dan’s presentation was complete and logical even though we were a bit skeptical. We are surprised and delighted with the transformation in our new recreation room. It is dry and comfortable now. Thanks!

    EverLast Access Well Installed in Camano Island, WA

    This crawl space originally had an open access that was very wet and muddy. We replaced it with our EverLast Access Well. Not only is the EverLast aesthetically pleasing, it is highly functional as well. It is large enough for someone to enter the crawl space with ease and its durability holds back soil, keeping your yards landscaping neat. 

  • Water Damage and Sinking Foundation in Oak Harbor Crawl Space

    Water Damage and Sinking Foundation in Oak Harbor Crawl Space

    Tom and Ellen’s home is on a low bank waterfront slope. Gravity, the Washington rain, and unstable clay-like soil were causing the house to sink along the outer foundation. Various areas of the interior floors were also sinking, creating warps and unlevel walking conditions. Additionally, the crawl space was leaking, and dirt was eroding from under the foundation, creating an uncomfortable living area with moisture, water damage, odors, and dust. We installed push piers and SmartJacks to solve the foundation settling issues, and a drainage system to ensure that water damage would no longer occur. CleanSpace encapsulation finished the project, giving the walls, floors, and piers permanent separation from the earth and providing a dry, clean, odor free and healthy environment.
