Job Stories From Bennington, VT
Stopping The Bowing Wall Threat in Bennington, VT

Mike had a big problem on his hands. One of the walls in his basement had several vertical cracks causing the wall to bow. Mike knew that the problem was serious and had to get professional help. So he reached out to Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems.

Upon arrival, Matt Clark and his team of experts took a look around and knew what the cause was and how to fix it. When the soil on the other side of the wall begins to shift and expand, it puts immense pressure of the wall. Over time, the soil pushes the wall, causing some of the slab to bow and form cracks. If the soil continues to push right up to the wall’s breaking point, the wall can slide in and put the entire house in jeopardy. To address this, the experts installed five Power Braces. These braces, set to the height of the basement wall, are placed against the wall and are anchored into the floor. These zinc-plated steel rods combat and contain the pressure of the exterior soil, keeping the wall intact and secure.

Mike was proactive about the dangers his house faced. He won’t have to worry about the wall bowing or sliding in. Matt Clark has been helping and saving homes for his whole career. If you’ve got a problem similar to Mike’s, don’t wait until it’s too late. Give Matt Clark a call for a free estimate today!

Eliminating Mold & Mildew in Bennington, VT

Marie’s basement leaked at the footing of the basement walls. Over time, mold and mildew developed and left the basement unusable. She decided enough was enough and wanted to take back her basement. She reached out to Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems for help.

Matt Clark and his team of experts have seen water intrusion hundreds of times. They installed their Superpump system, Waterguard systems, discharge line and Iceguard. These installations serve as a solution to the incoming water but to tackle the mold and mildew issues, the experts installed a SaniDry Upright X model. The SaniDry has a powerful 300CFM fan, a MERV-11 air filter and can remove up to 109 pints of water per day. This dehumidifier keeps the basement’s humidity at a healthier, lower level.

Now that the water is gone and the humidity has returned to a healthy level, Marie can use her basement once again. Matt Clark and his team of experts are more than happy to help the Bennington community.

Saying Goodbye To Pesky Water Leakages

Elmer had a problem that most homeowners experience, basement water. Every time a heavy rain came through and during the spring, his basement would take on water. After doing some research, he saw that there were solutions to this problem and promptly reached out to Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems.

Matt Clark and his team of experts inspected the basement and knew just what to do. They installed a TripleSafe pump system, their Waterguard system, a discharge line and an Iceguard. The Waterguard is a gutter-like device that collects the water at the base of the wall. The water is pushed to the TripleSafe pump. There are three pumps that make up this system, a primary one and two backups in case of power failure. The primary pump channels the water through the discharge line and the water is pushed to the outdoor surface. The Iceguard prevents the discharge line from freezing, since, it is an open airway to the outdoors. With all these installations in place, the water in Elmer’s basement will be taken care of without ever being seen.

Elmer made the right choice by calling Matt Clark. Sometimes basement water doesn’t seem like a big deal but the experts know that it can lead to many more problems down the road including mold growth, property damage, bug inhabitance and many more. Now Elmer can rest easily knowing that his basement will be safe and dry.

Bennington, VT Homeowner Maintains a Dry Basement with Annual Service

Maintaining a home can be a lot of work. But unfortunately, all that hard work can be negated without regular service. Patrisha S. of Bennington, VT is a regular customer at Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems and never fails to schedule her annual maintenance appointment!

Patricia’s basement was prone to humidity and flooding before Matt Clark’s team installed a waterproofing system that included an UltraSump battery backup sump pump system and a SaniDry dehumidifier. Expert Mevludin Bahonjic checks in with her each year to make sure everything is in working order. Patrisha occasionally needs a new battery for her sump pump or a new filter for the dehumidifier, but she does not mind these minor expenses, as it’s a small price to pay to enjoy a dry, healthy basement.

Patrisha trusts the team at Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems to act in her best interest and keep her basement dry and safe. Not only did they save her basement when it was on the brink of disaster, but they still take the time to completely inspect Patrisha’s basement each year to ensure a dry space.

Crawl Space Encapsulation and Waterproofing in Bennington, VT

Chris M. thought he had done everything right in insulating and protecting the crawl space underneath his Bennington, VT home. But just by looking at the crawl space, he knew there was an issue – it should not be so dirty and damp! Unsure of the extent of the repairs needed, Chris discussed his problems with a friend. As it turned out, the friend recently had waterproofing done in his basement by the team at Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems and highly recommended them. Shortly after giving them a call, crawl space expert Michael Doherty came and gave Chris a better idea about the state of his crawl space.

Michael had a lot of work to do to plan for repairs. The crawl space was quite large and had an unexpected obstruction. An old well sat right in the middle of the crawl space! But when Northern Basements crew arrived, they came prepared. They installed a WaterGuard XL drainage system, a TripleSafe sump pump, and discharge lines to rid the crawl space of all water. The team also connected the well to a lateral pipe that hooked up with the rest of the system to help divert ground water and moisture. Next, they had to install products to keep the space clean and dry. A CleanSpace liner and drainage matting covering the entire area would do the trick. After sealing off the old well the team felt confident that this crawl space would remain dry.

Chris could not be more pleased with the work! Though he hopes that he never has another problem in his crawl space, Chris is happy knowing that he can count on the experts at Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems for all his waterproofing needs.

My husband and I are in the process of buying our first home in Bennington. Our inspection report revealed some cracks and lateral movement in the block foundation.

We would like to get a bid on the work required to prevent future cracking and address the drainage/water issues. Thanks.

Project Location: Bennington, VT
House has sunk approximately 2 inches on a down hill side. Not really noticeable, except in one room where the floor is not level. Half of it is an addition put on in 1960. Other half is older and ok. Using a laser level, it appears to be about 2 inches lower. The same two inches shows up when checking the basement floor with the laser level. -- There is no hurry, but if you are in the Bennington area, I would be interested in an estimate.
