Northern States Basement Systems

Title: Foreman

Jake from Northern States Basement Systems

I was living in North Dakota and in the business of welding. I decided to get out of welding, moved from North Dakota and found a great job repairing basements in Duluth. Although I still get pretty dirty being in basements, satisfying the costumer is very rewarding. I have been emplyed at NSBS since February 2016. I've learned almost everything there is to know about basements since then. I have completed countless jobs and am proud of the work I have done since being at NSBS.

I live in Superior with my wife and 3 children, and I spend my time with them when I am not working.

    I looked up basement waterproofing on the internet and found this company. They had a rep come to my house and give me a free estimate. Scheduling was a breeze, and when the crew came, the work was completed very quickly. The work looks good and the crew did and excellent job cleaning up after the project was complete. The crew was very professional and polite. Overall, I am very satisfied with this company

    Customer Testimonial

              I loved the crew that did my basement....Jake and Shaun. So nice, both of them! Jake answered all my questions, he was always happy, smiling, friendly. Explained things, took his time in doing so. Expressed a number of times he wanted me to be happy. He took pride in his work, told me he loved his job. I feel fortunate he was the one to do my house. He was proud of how well he cut and trimmed the sheeting as was I!! I thought my basement stayed very clean during the process and upon finishing and leaving. Dave, the salesman was also great. Although it was sort of a tough decision on which company to choose because pricing was close actually competition was going to be slightly less, but I liked Dave because he did the labor for 16 years, plus on the estimation side of things now, so has done it all. Just made me feel very comfortable w such a big decision I had to make. Thank you very much!! I'm so happy.

    CleanSpace Wall System a fix to paint peeling walls in Duluth, MN

    The customer had a basement that leaked when it rained hard. Water was also leaking from one of her window areas and a lot of little leaks where the floor and wall meet. During this springs thaw things grew a little worse and she now had water pouring down her wall. Something needed to be done so she called Northern States Basement Systems. Our specialist Dave went out and bid her WaterGuard, but while looking on our website she saw the CleanSpace Wall System and thought what a perfect solution to her horrible paint peeling walls. Dave easily changed the bid for the customer and she decided to go with 106 ft WaterGuard and 106 ft of CleanSpace Wall System.

    This customer bought a very old house that sat vacant without heat for a year or so before the purchase. When the heat was turned back on it became evident that the last owner did patch and paint work to cover up the shifting blocks. It became very evident once living in the house for a couple months. Due to the close proximity of the neighbors, something needed to be done on the inside of the house. Our specialist Dave, came out to look at the bowing of 3 of the 4 basement walls. He bid 15 power braces and 2 earth anchors in attempts to stop the basement walls from shifting
