    Mary S. of Elkhart, IN

    Customer Testimonial

              "I had put off this crawlspace/floor issue for over a year because of my reluctance to deal with estimates, high pressure sales people, and questionable reliability of job completion. Your represetative, Chris Young, was/is wonderful and he explained everything to me in such a way that I had none of these fears when dealing with him and Nova Basment Systems. His presentation and the company's information package were top notch, very professionally prepared, and left no doubt that the system would totally correct the problem and be completed in a timely fashion, with no effort on my part."

Chris Young from Nova Basement Systems

Title: Estimator

Chris Young from Nova Basement Systems

Chris started with Nova Basement Systems back in 2014. In the beginning, he started as a laborer learning in the in's and out's of waterproofing and foundation repair.  With some background knowledge of construction already, Chris grasped our work very quickly.  He has already repaired hundreds of homes with the installation crews.  

From there, Chris has been to training in Connecticut as an installation technician and as a system design specialists.  Currently, Chris's dedication and willingness to learn and grow has moved him into an estimating roll.  Chris enjoys meeting with new people everyday, and looks forward to helping people resolve their home issues!

In his spare time, he likes to be riding his motorcycle and spending time with his wife, Tammy.

Case Studies I've worked on:

Before and after photos from jobs I've worked on:
  • Flooding Basement Windows in Elkhart, IN
    Before

    This customer called us because her basement windows kept flooding.  We installed new sunhouses and curtain drains.

  • Flip Home with Moisture Issues in Elkhart, Indiana
    Before
    Flip Home with Moisture Issues in Elkhart, Indiana
    After

    This Elkhart, Indiana home was bought for a flip home.  The customer knew he had to address moisture issues in order to get this house sold.  They quickly gave Nova Basement Systems a call to address the issues.  

     

    Our System Design Specialist, Chris Young, came to evaluate the property.  He concluded that this basement would need a SuperSump®, our Flangeless WaterGuard® System, an IceGuard (to prevent freezing), and an UnderGround Downspout discharge line.  

    With a plan set in motion, Co-Foremen Joe Nichols, Ignacio Reyes, and their Installation Technicians straightened out this basement in no time!  This customer was able to get this house on the market knowing the moisture issues had been taken care of.  

  • Foundation Repair in Elkhart, IN
    Before

    After

    This Elkhart homeowner was getting so much moisture in their crawl, that it was rotting all of their beams.  

  • Water Seepage in New Carlisle, Indiana Home
    Before
    Water Seepage in New Carlisle, Indiana Home
    After

    Just like many of Nova Basement Systems customers, this homeowner would experience seepage during heavy rains.  The moisture would bring that dreaded "wet basement smell".  She was tired of vacuuming water and gave us a call to see what options she had for waterproofing repairs.

    Our System Design Specialist, Chris Young, came out to her property for a complimentary estimate.  He found that installing a perimeter system of WaterGuard®, accompanied by a SuperSump®, and an UnderGround Downspout with an IceGuard was the appropriate fix for her home.  

    Foremen Joe Nichols and Ignacio Reyes, teamed up with crewmen Brian, Kenny, Spencer, John and Nathan to dry up this basement.  In just two days they completed their interior install, leaving the basement ready for any heavy rain.  

  • Hydrostatic Pressure in Three Oaks, Michigan
    Before
    Hydrostatic Pressure in Three Oaks, Michigan
    After

    This customer in Michigan kept getting water in their unfinished basement.  The customer wanted a solution to prevent the water from ruining the items stored there.  

    Our System Design Specialist, Chris Young, determined that this home was experiencing hydrostatic pressure.  Chris customized a design to include a Lateral Drain to relieve the water pressure from the ground.  He also included a SuperSump®, an Underground Downspout, and an IceGuard to prevent the discharge line from freezing.  

    Our foreman, Cameron, quickly took care of this homeowners property with a little help from Nathan.  This customer was very pleased with our installation process.   

  • Wet Valparaiso Crawlspace
    Before
    Wet Valparaiso Crawlspace
    After

    This Valparaiso resident was not happy with the conditions of his crawlspace.  It was wet, muddy, and would cause high humidity levels in his living space.  He called in to get a free estimate, so we could diagnose the root of these issues.  

    Our System Design Specialist, Chris Young, evaluated this property.  He quickly determined this crawlspace needed a perimeter of Drain Tile, a SuperSump®, an Underground Downspout and IceGuard, and he chose to encapsulate the crawlspace with a vapor barrier, CleanSpace®.

    Phil Jackson, along with his team Bryan, Jason, and Nate finished this large project quickly and efficiently.  

  • EmeShield Finish
    Before
