I first started working at Northern States three years ago. In the last 3 years, my knowledge of crawlspaces and basements have been tested over and over. I really like this career because it is so rewarding when the homeowner is pleased with the work that my crew and I have produced. It is also satisfying that each day brings a variety of daily duties.
The most memorable job was a nasty crawlspace under a huge cabin. This crawlspace was a foot and half under the cabin and I cannot emphasize enough how nasty the crawlspace was. It was both dark and wet, I didn't even want to think about what was growing under this cabin. The reason why it was so memorable was because I had never seen something so ugly turn into something so amazing and beautiful.
When I am not working, I really like to spend my time in the outdoors, especially hiking with my dog, Riley.
This customer had a really old dirty basement. They felt they needed to do something about it. Our specialist Dave, proposed to the homeowners to install the 52 ft of WaterGuard with 2 ports and a super sump to get rid of the water entering the basement. Also, to address the walls he proposed 52 ft of our CleanSpace Wall system. The homeowners thought this sounded like a great idea and booked the job happily!
This is a residence in West Duluth whose basement needed a little TLC from Northern States Basement Systems.
This customer had our WaterGuard system installed in half of thier basement in 2015. They continued to have a little bit of seepage issues with a wall that they did not address before. We added on to there existing system with another 28 ft of WaterGuard, which will hopefully stop the water from getting into thier finished basement.
This customer had a finished basement that suddenly began leaking water this spring. They were very upset that the flooring was ruined and something needed to be done. Our specialist Dave went out and assessed the situation. He proposed 97 ft of WaterGuard coupled with 2 WellDuct Window Drains and a SuperSump to mediate the water into the sump station and out of the basement.
This customer in Aitkin, MN had an issue with her house always being excessively dusty, and therefore dirty. She had a furnace guy come in to see if there was a problem with her vents. He came to the conclusion that the problem was her dirt crawlspace where the furnace was located. The customer called us, and soon after meeting with our specialist Dave had a bid in her hands for 1135 sq ft of CleanSpace to encapsulate her crawl space. No more dusty air blowing through her house.
