    We heard about NBS from a trusted friend when our basement began to leak. I must say, we couldn't be more pleased!! Frank, the sales representative was so professional gave us a thorough analysis and explanation of the problem and above all provided us with a permanent solution. The crew lead by Ben was extremely professional, friendly and informed us of everything they were doing. They were a pleasure to have in our home. I highly recommend this guys and when we are ready to finish our basement we will be sure to hire this team again! Look no further - these are your guys!

  • Muddy Basement in Lyme, New Hampshire
    Before
    Muddy Basement in Lyme, New Hampshire
    After

    Every spring the homeowner in Lyme, New Hampshire would get water in their basement and it wouldn't start to go away until August.  This made using the basement for anything a big inconvenience.  Tired of not being able to use their space they contacted Matt Clark's Northern Basement Systems. 

     Matt sent out of his System Design Specialist for the customers FREE ESTIMATE.  After doing the inspection the conclusion was made the best way to keep the customers basement permanently dry was to install a few different products.  First Northern Basement Systems installed a CleanSpace Wall System.   The CleanSpace Wall System uses a thick (20mil) white poly sheet material to completely cover basement foundation walls. CleanSpace is installed by fastening the material to the rim joist atop the foundation wall, and by installing press-fit plastic fasteners into the masonry.  As part of your waterproofing system, it creates an effective moisture and vapor barrier. The wall covering forces all wall seepage and moisture to flow into your perimeter drain system. The white poly surface eliminates the need to paint basement walls, providing a bright, stain-resistant finish that never needs repainting or maintenance. 

    Next, WaterGuard was installed around the perimeter of the basement to collect any water seepage from the wall to the WaterGuard.  Finally a SuperSump Plus was installed to pump out any water in the WaterGuard.  The SuperSump will take all of the water out of the basement and pump it away from the house down a discharge line.  The homeowner now can finally enjoy a nice dry basement.

    When the old sump pump in the basement couldn't handle the amount of water entering the basement the homeowner contacted Matt Clark's Northern Basement Systems, to set up a free estimate.  After meeting with a system design specialist they decided the best way to keep the basement dry was to replace the old pump with a TripleSafe Sump Pump.  The TripleSafe has three separate motors.  The first pump is a heavy-duty 1/3 horsepower (HP) cast-iron Zoeller pump that does most of the pumping, handling up to 2,600 gallons of water per hour.  The second pump is a 1/2 HP pump that operates automatically if Pump 1 fails or if greater pumping volume is needed (up to 6,200 gallons per hour).  The third pump is a battery-operated pump that turns on automatically if power fails.
