Job Stories From Colchester, VT
Homeowner in Colchester, VT Completely Renovate Basement - Now It's Water-Free!

Christine J. had another family member who would be moving into her house in the near future. Unfortunately, there was no extra space in the main part of her home. While a section of her large basement could be perfect, it wasn’t acceptable in its current condition - unfinished and prone to water leakage. Christine decided to hire the basement professionals at Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems to fix her basement. Expert Nicholas Farnham inspected the Colchester home and offered the perfect plan for repair.

Northern Basements team installed a DryTrak baseboard water control system around the perimeter of the entire basement and TrenchDrain basement drains by the door to the outside to collect any water permeating the basement. The waterproofing system also included a Zoeller M53 sump pump and LawnScape Outlet. To finish the room, the team put down ThermalDry charcoal basement floor carpet, which withstands water while creating a cozy atmosphere.

Christine’s new basement was exactly what she needed. She hopes her family member likes the space as much as she does. Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems helped Christine obtain her ideals for a healthy, attractive home.

SmartJacks Crawl Space Posts Level Floor in Colchester, VT Home

So much debris obstructed Margaret C.’s small crawl space that she could hardly see in there to investigate her concerns. She knew something was wrong because the floor above the crawl space was noticeably sagging. Worried that there might be a structural flaw, she reached out to a knowledgeable friend for advice. He recommended that she call Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems, a reputable company that worked in the Colchester area. She took his advice and scheduled an appointment for a free inspection.

Expert and owner Matt Clark shifted through the debris to determine the problem and the best solution. A few beams were sagging and one, in particular, was splintered. After clearing the debris out, Matts team could then address the real problem. They installed sixteen SmartJack crawl space support posts to reinforce the crawl space ceiling. They also replaced the faulty header beam. Margaret was happy to find the floor above was once again level!

The professionals at Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems were happy to help save Margaret’s home from total disrepair. Leaving the crawl space to decay only would have amplified her problems in the future. Margaret is happy that she trusted the advice of her friend and found an expert local contractor!

Colchester, VT Homeowners Protect Finished Basement From Water Damage

Rick and Lorraine B. previously had work done by Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems. After attending a local home show and talking to a representative from the company, the couple decided to hire Northern Basement Systems to finish their basement. Northern Basements team installed ThermalDry sandstone basement floor tiles, and at the time it was the perfect finishing touch! But a few months later, after a hard winter, the couple was faced with a new problem. Water had leaked into the basement. Rick and Lorraine were quick to call Nicholas Farnham, the basement expert who had performed their first inspection. He happily agreed to come back for a second quote on waterproofing the house.

Nicholas discovered that their current sump pump system was faulty and would need to be replaced. This time, owner Matt Clark acted as foreman for their project. He hooked up a SuperSump sump pump and IceGuard to prevent flooding, even in the event that the discharge lines were to freeze. He also added additional indoor drainage lines. These products effectively ended Rick and Lorraine’s water woes!

Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems not only helped Rick and Lorraine attain their ideal basement the first time; the team was there for them again when new issues arose. The couple is very thankful to their team for helping them maintain their home without a hassle!

Would like an emergency entrance out of the basement to be safe just trying to decide if an Egress Window would work where we are or if we should get a bulkhead. The house is 1970's and has two tiny in the back but too close to the septic to use that one and the other is on the side of the house opposite end of the garage that I think might work perfect but would like to find out more information.
