Crawl space in Des Moines, IA

We had a nasty crawl space that had moisture and mold. After Jon and his team finished their work doing the encapsulation, it is spotless. The team came in and did a very professional job. I would definitely recommend this company. The only issue we had was the cost was high but that is the way everything is these days.
Peter L. — Des Moines, IA

Waterproofing in Madrid, IA

Dean I. — Madrid, IA

Crawl space in Des Moines, IA

For three years I never even looked in the crawl space of our home. Then I read an article about encapsulating when we were trying to find ways to improve on our utility bills. We got quotes from three different Des Moines area contractors and decided to use your company — glad we did. One of the other guys kept telling us that encapsulation is just a fad. I could tell he really did not know what he was talking about. The man from Jon’s Dry Basement® Foundation Repair was extremely professional, totally explained the process and fully answered all our concerns. Turns out we had a rodent problem we did not even know about so we were able to address that issue during the encapsulation process. It was amazing to see the young men crawl into such a small area but they did it. I have see a drop in the utility bill by about $38/month so far and I anticipate in the winter the savings should be even more. The only small item we had a concern with was one of the workers left behind some trash, maybe he just forgot about it. At any rate, I’d recommend this firm. Thanks very much Dry Basement®.

Remodeling basement in Des Moines, IA

We always wanted a finished lower level basement media room. After researching contractors we selected Jon’s Dry Basement® Foundation Repair because of their Magic Wall® system. It just made sense to use inorganic material in the space under grade level that is susceptible to moisture. From the very first appointment with the salesman to the final inspection, everyone on the crew did a fantastic job. They took the time to answer all our questions and did not mind that we changed our mind several times on a few wall location items. I never felt rushed and for that I am truly grateful. For people thinking about doing a finished basement I would definitely suggest you check out the system that Jon’s Dry Basement® Foundation Repair has available. Bill and I are very pleased with the end result.
Mary and Bill L. — Des Moines, IA

The whole gang from Jon’s Dry Basement® Foundation Repair did an excellent job. Having a dry basement will ensure no mold grows down there and that gives us peace of mind.

I was very pleased and would freely recommend the company to anyone in Iowa with a need for this type of service.
