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.
