This week, members of our Jamison team participated in specialized Limeworks training. Lime is commonly used as the binder which holds aggregates together for historic mortars and plasters. It is often the material of choice when repairing traditional vintage structures and building new sustainable buildings. At Jamison, we believe continued education for our employees allows us to provide the best possible services to our customers.
Congratulations to two members of the basement team who completed the HCC Healthy Crawlspace Contractor Certification Test.
Congratulations to the following Masonry employees for their completion in the PHRC Training Program – “Fundamentals of Exterior Plaster and Thin Stone Veneer Assemblies“.

Jamison Home Service’s basement division, Jamison Waterproofing, recently teamed up with the HEADStrong Foundation for basement waterproofing services. The HEADStrong Foundation works to improve the lives of those affected by cancer. “Nick’s House” is one of many works of this Foundation. Nick’s House Provides complimentary lodging for out-of-town patients and their families who are undergoing cancer-related treatment in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. Nick’s House is not a medical facility but a guest house designed to meet the unique needs of patients, their families and/or caregivers.
Nick’s House, being a residential property, needed our services to keep their basement dry. We were proud to be able to provide this service to Nick’s House, fully protecting it from water for years to come.

In our continued effort to serve the community around us, Jamison Home Services has teamed up with Purple Heart Homes. Purple Heart Homes is a 501(c)3 public charity that was founded in 2008 by John Gallina and Dale Beatty, two combat wounded Veterans. Their mission is to provide support for veterans.

When waterproofing your basement one of the most important decisions you will make is whether to go with an open or closed basement drainage system. Advanced technology in the waterproofing industry has allowed for closed basement systems to become the wiser of the two choices. At Jamison we only install closed drainage systems which utilize a wall vapor barrier to direct water down into the sub-floor drainage. GrateDrain System, used by Jamison, is the ONLY patented closed basement drainage system in the industry. This method provides many benefits over an open system:
– Keeps toxic gases from reaching your living space: Gases within the soil such as radon and methane cannot rise up in the air with a closed system. The gases are trapped within the drain providing for a healthier living space.
– Prevents bug infestations within the basement: Bugs love damp and dark spaces such as basements. With a closed system the bugs get trapped in the drain ensuring you a pest-free basement.
– Provides healthier moisture levels: Closed basement systems ensure lower humidity since the moisture from the ground cannot evaporate into the air.
– Prevents mildew, mold and other harmful bacteria: As previously mentioned, a closed system comes with lower humidity. In turn, this prevents mold, mildew and other bacteria that are often common with the moisture levels of an open system.
Over 30 years of on the job experience have gone into engineering the GrateDrain system used by Jamison. These systems can be designed to meet the needs of any home, regardless of age or size. Call our basement experts today to discuss your waterproofing needs.
The historical Flourtown Farmers Market has a new home and Jamison Home Services is honored to provide waterproofing services to the new location. Located at the former Springfield Hotel and Sorella Rose Restaurant, the new location keeps the market in the community it has always called home. The Flourtown Farmers Market, which hosts a variety of vendors serving different styles of food, has been a staple in the community since 1986.
Now Jamison looks to protect this new home by providing superior waterproofing service. Jamison Home Services hopes that our work, along with many of the other renovations made to the new building, will allow the Market to remain a part of the community for years to come. We take pride in providing quality work in the community that we serve and are excited to be a part of this new era for the Market.
We had a great time being a vendor at the 2017 Chestnut Hill Home and Garden Festival. Despite the weather not being great, there were still a ton of people who came out to the event. We can’t wait to see you at next year’s festival.
