    Customer Testimonial

              "We had Hollis come to our lake house for a possible mold problem in our crawlspace. No problem there but he left a packet with us, which included info about sunhouses. We thought that sounded good for our house in town, and it is! We liked the way Hollis explained things. Of course it sure helped that he is a Purdue Graduate! We really appreciated his honesty in telling us that nothing needed to be done at the lake house. My husband was VERY impressed with Dave, the man who installed our sunhouses. My husband says Dave did an excellent job, he was very neat and careful. He cleaned up the areas really well. He even washed the basement window for us."

Jim Nova used his construction and mechanical background to found Nova, Inc. in 1977. The company's main function then was to provide an effective and economical alternative to the less than effective and costly processes available at that time. 

About the Founder

Brian Lannery

Jim Nova

Jim founded Nova Basement Systems in 1975. With a Masters Degree in Vocation Building Trades, Electronics and Drafting from Indiana University, he started his career as a Building Trades Educator. Through the decades, he has not only taught, but he built numerous houses through his years as a teacher and on his own.

He has 40 years experience in construction and mechanical trade, which led him to concentrate on finding economic solutions for waterproofing and stabilizing deteriorating basements. He carries a current contractors license in the states of Michigan and Indiana.

In December of 2014 Jim was able to retire and turn the company reins over to four of his long time employees. Dave Naughton, Phil Droege, Terresa Draves and Mike Flores who combined have over 60 years of experience working at Nova Basement Systems. They are very excited to carry on the name and reputation that Jim has built up over the past 38 years.
