    Flip Home with Moisture Issues in Elkhart, Indiana

    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.

    Our crew got to work and was able to transform his space to a controlled clean environment in just two days!

    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.
