Northland Basement Systems insulated the perimeter walls with SilverGlo and fully encapsulated space with CleanSpace and a drainage matting to control earth's moisture as well as seal from rodents and insects.
The sump pump is the heart of the system. It's what does all the work by pumping the unwanted water that enters your basement, out. It only makes sense that you have one that works properly so you don't end up with a flooded basement. NBS has several options for you to choose from depending on your basemet needs.
Foamax provides superior insulation, comfort and cost savings, while making your walls look bright and clean!
The SaniDry Sedona is the world's most efficient high-performance dehumidifier and filtration system - and in a small size to take up less space in your basement or fit in small crawl spaces.
Just because your home was built with a dirt crawl space does not make it any less of a hazard to the entire structure. Whether or not you see signs of groundwater leakage, earth water vapor will still evaporate and move up into the home, causing rotting floor joists, mold growth, health issues, and more.
How do we at Northland Basement Systems fix this issue? Simple, we isolate the crawl space from the rest of the home with the CleanSpace® vapor barrier, which stops water intrusion, prevents moisture seepage, air seals, and more. As an added benefit, the CleanSpace® vapor barrier also transforms your nasty, wet crawl space into a clean and secure storage space!
This home in Iron Mountain, MI had had some finishing work done to their basement in the past. They wanted the basement completed and upgraded, which is why they called Northland Basement Systems.
The DryTrak drainage system was installed along the wall to capture seepage from walls and the floor wall joint and will drain into the TripleSafe sump pump system.
If you have water problems in your basement, you could be wasting valuable space in your home. Your wet basement could also be causing other issues in your home that you might not have noticed, like mold or structural damage. One of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to put an end to flooding or wetness below the home is by installing a sump pump.
This top-of-the-line system sports three sump pumps in one sump liner. The TripleSafe is the world's most reliable pumping system; keeping your basement dry with triple the protection.
This is a good example of our team being able to work around existing obstacles. This Basement in particular had an in floor heating system that our team was able to locate and avoid with the help of a thermal imager.
The TripleSafe Sump System is the world's most reliable pumping system; keeping your basement dry with triple the protection. A sump pump is a necessary element of a basement waterproofing system - and everything is fine until one of three problems occur, causing a flood. The three pump problems are: pump failure, single pump can't handle volume in hard rain, and power failure. The TripleSafe assures protection from all three problems.
Foundation wall cracks and bowing basement walls are signs that your foundation is in need of repair. Our carbon fiber basement wall repair solutions can help reinforce your bowing walls and repair cracks.
With the TripleSafe Sump System installed, this basement will be safe from water even in extreme conditions such as power outages. Thanks to the battery powered back-up pump, this system will continue to operate even when the rest of the house is without power.
If you have a doorway or stairway that leads to the outside, you'll want to have a trench drain installed in front of it while you are having your waterproofing system installed. Even if your door currently does not leak, with the right snow, slush or heavy rain conditions, it can.
This is a good example of the flexibility of our Waterguard drainage system being used on a field stone foundation. Northland Basement Systems has fixed thousands of homes with water problems, whether it is a new home with an ICF foundation or a stone foundation that was built by hand we can create a dry usable space.
WaterGuard drainage installed and tied into existing TripleSafe Sump System that NBS had previously installed.
Floors above dirt spaces are susceptible to problems created within the space itself. Moisture changes and weak foundation soils in a space can cause columns to shift and settle. Sagging beams and floor joists are often the result of improper spacing of existing pier columns or weakened floor systems due to mold and wood rot. As these forces of nature occur in the space, the floors above begin to also sink and sag.
The Smartjack System permanently lifts and stabilizes existing beams and floor joists. A solid base of engineered fill addresses the problem of weak foundation soil by transferring the weight of the home to competent strata. Steel columns are secured to the beams or joists in the space. Heavy-duty, threaded rods allow for adjustment and a custom fit for each SmartJack System installed.
The CarbonArmor system permanently stabilizes your home's foundation walls. CarbonArmor uses fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs) which are 10-times stronger than steel, yet flexible enough to contour tightly against your basement wall.
