    Fantastic experience overall, from design to implementation.  The planning process was exceptional. I never felt like anyone was trying to sell me something that was not needed, but quite the opposite - to only do what was necessary to resolve the issue.  Darren thoroughly answered all of my questions and was very informative about the home construction and entire process. I am a picky person when it comes to details and the installation experience greatly exceeded my expectations.   I was surprised at how thorough the crew was with their clean-up.

    Customer Testimonial

              "I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for the hard work which has gone into my basement this past week. I am aware that climbing into dimly lit and poorly ventilated concrete slab for jack-hammering, is not the most glorious work. I commend Daryn, Steve, and Danny for doing this without a complaint. Their professionalism, execution, and quickness of work was pretty amazing considering the laborious task they were undertaking. Likewise, I would like to thank Jamie in the office for helping to ease us through this process, and Kevin for beginning the whole job. We are looking forward to working with your company and especially Matt in the garage, as he also demonstrated a high level of professionalism when he and Brandon were here."

    CleanSpace in Vergennes, Vermont

    A family in Vergennes, Vermont were in search of a solution for water coming into their basement.  After thorough research they came to the conclusion Matt Clark's Northern Basement System were by far the most trustworthy and reputable company they came across.  They setup their FREE estimate from on of Matt's System Design Specialist.  After an extensive evaluation they decided the best way to fix the water issue was to install CleanSpace on the walls, a full perimeter WaterGuard System, and a TripleSafe Sump Pump

     CleanSpace achieves several important goals. 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.  The WaterGuard System will collect the water and direct it to the TripleSafe Sump Pump.  The TripleSafe  will pump the water out of the basement to a discharge line away from the home.  The homeowners now can enjoy a nice dry basement.

    Dan of Essex, Vermont saw Northern Basement Systems working on a neighbors basement and then further enquired if we might be able to help him in his basement. His cinderblock foundation had a wall that was cracked and bowing, he was concerned about the safety and worsening damage. 

    We provided Dan with a FREE estimate, once Dan approved the proposal, we scheduled the project and installed a PowerBrace Foundation Wall System. This system consisted of 5 steel I-beams that were secured to the above floor joists with steel brackets. 

    This system is the ideal solution for this failing foundation wall. The PowerBraces will stabilize the wall to prevent further damage and has the potential to be tightened over time to potentially straighten the wall. This solution is also minimally invasive, with no exterior excavation, also making the installation much quicker. 

    Dan is excited to have a much safer foundation under his home for years to come!
