    My experiences in the area (Minocqua) have not been great. Your crew was just amazing. I was surprised by how efficiently they got the job done. They left my basement cleaner than I had it before they came. It's a credit getting a crew like the one that came to my house.

              The office staff and my represenative at Northland Basement Systems were all very professional and very informative. The installation crew was a very nice and polite group of guys. I could ask questions and they didn't make me feel stupid. The cleanup was excellent! They took the time to cover my carpeting and hardwood floors and hung plastic. I thought i was given a very fair price for my basement waterproofing project. Thank you for the great service.

    Cindy S. of Iron River, MI

    Customer Testimonial

              Northland Basement Systems, I've never written a testimonial letter before but what you have done for me has given me total piece of mind. Living alone, battling a wet flooding basement for over twenty years was overwhelming. My friend told me about your company so i figured it would not hurt to check into it. Once Corey Pylkas came out, checked out my problem, everything was explained and it sounded too good to be true. The crew came, very professional and cleaned everything so nice. Took one day and they worked hard all day, nice friendly guys. Needless to say we've had a lot of rain this summer and I have run down to check for leaks, there are none. You are truely a fantastic company and I thank you so much. I recommend you to all my friends. Thank you again. Sincerely, Cindy

    This homeowner had been dealing with settling concrete for many years. Northland Basement Systems was contracted to lift the approach along the front of the garage and the entrance to the house. Once the concrete was lifted all the joints were sealed using NexusPro sealant.

    Geo-Lock Wall Anchors used in Montreal, WI

    Having foundation problems can be a frightening thing! The wall in the before photo is the result of soil expanding and putting added pressure, which in turn caused the wall to crack and buckle. Our design specialist, Corey Pylkas, recommended the Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System. Geo-Lock Wall Anchors stabalize foundation walls by connecting two steel plates together with a galvanized steel rod. Based on the severity of the wall movement, excavation was recommended, allowing the wall to be immediately straightened.
