    Foundation Support and Radiant Heat in Woodstock, Vermont

    A Woodstock, Vermont homeowner contacted Northern Basement Systems to schedule a FREE estimate to see how Matt and his team could improve his basement space. At the time the basement had a dirt floor and a large portion of the area was crawlspace with minimal clearance. After a system design specialist visited the home he found a solution to improve the whole basement and make it more usable and eliminate the dirt floor.

    The installation specialists at Northern Basement Systems installed WaterGuard on the perimeter of the basement for drainage, and 10-foot SmartJacks were installed for added support beneath the home. Next, the specialist installed Delta mat and PEX radiant heating tubing. Lastly, the crew poured concrete over the Delta and PEX give a clean and finished look to the space. Matt Clark and his team were able to give this space an entire makeover to meet the customer's needs!
