    After our basement was flooded, I looked for help and found you through an internet search. Boy am I glad I did. Every bit of this process has been better than I anticipated. The two men who performed our cleanup and installed our new interior drain system were the best. We could not have experienced a better job. Thanks so musch.

    Its Triple the TripleSafes in Alstead, New Hampshire.
    After

    Like most Churches, this Church in Alstead, New Hampshire had events and gatherings.  The majority of this Church's events took place in a nice finished basement.  Over the years the church had to move or cancel events due to water in the basement.  They had a sump pump, but it wouldn't keep up with the large amount of water entering.  This would lead to endless hours of removing the water by additional portable pumps and shop vacuums.  Tired of the hassle, the good people at the church reached out to the Water Proofing Experts at Matt Clark's Northern Basement Systems.  After a FREE ESTIMATE, one of Matt's System Design Specialist set forth a plan to permanently water proof the church basement.  The amount of water entering the basement and the size of the basement was so large that this job would call for three TripleSafe Sump Pumps, a WaterGuard System, and to control the humidity a Sanidry XP.  The basement is now nice and dry, ready to host future events.

    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.

    After

    Push Piers are made of steel and are driven very far into the ground until it hits stable soil or bedrock.  The push piers on this job were used in both the interior and exterior of the building to lift it back to the original position.  The team removed soil from around the exterior walls then used a heavy-duty steel bracket that is installed below and against the building foundation's footing.  Next, steel piers are driven hydraulically through the bracket into the stable soil.  The weight of the building is transferred through the piers to competent soil.  Then our team lifted the building back to a level state, backfilled the soil, and now the building is permanently stabilized.
