Job Stories From Essex Junction, VT
Crawlspace Water Seepage Solution in Essex Junction, VT

Deb was experiencing some crawlspace issues. The crawlspace, which was adjacent to her basement, was taking in water. There was little access to the crawlspace so it was difficult to assess the damages and implement a solution. She had to turn to someone who specializes in crawlspaces. After doing some online research she linked up with Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems.

Matt Clark and his team of experts reviewed the situation. This crawlspace called for insulation removal, installation of a Smartpump, a discharge line, a series of CleanSpace Drainage Matting and a SaniDry CX Air system. Once everything was in place, the pump pushed the water out of the crawlspace and through a discharge line, ultimately leading to the outdoor surface. The SaniDry CX Air system helps to keep the crawlspace’s humidity level low. All this was achieved by accessing the crawlspace through a window.

Matt Clark and his team of experts can traverse through nearly any crawlspace. They know how to stop water seepage in its tracks and make sure that it doesn’t come back. If you’ve got a crawlspace problem, Matt Clark is the right guy for the job!

Water Seeping Through The Basement Walls

Joy was facing a problem. When a heavy rain came through town, water seeped through her basement walls and trickled down to the floor. She knew that this problem could be fixed. After some research she found Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems. Matt Clark and his team of experts have seen this problem occur many times through the years and knew just what to do.

The experts from Northern Basement Systems installed their WaterGuard system. This gutter-like design separates itself from the soil under your floor so it will never clog. Weep holes were drilled into the block walls to drain water out from the walls and into the WaterGuard system. Once the water was collected, it needed somewhere to go. So the experts installed a TripleSafe pump system which included a 1/3 horsepower cast iron primary AC pump, a ½ horsepower cast iron AC back-up pump and an UltraSump battery back-up pumping system. The TripleSafe pump and WaterGuard systems then channeled the water through a discharge line, ultimately disposing it to the outdoor surface.

Now Joy doesn’t have to worry about water on her basement floors. The in-place system drains the unseen water safely away. Matt Clark’s team has seen this problem again and again and they’ll be happy to help anyone who has a similar situation.

Horizontal Cracks in Basement Wall

Ed started to notice something that happens to many home owners: his basement had started to form horizontal cracks. Horizontal cracks can be an eye sore, but they pose a much bigger threat to a home. When outdoor soil shifts and expands it presses on the wall, causing the wall to crack and bow. As the soil continues to expand, the cracks and bowing get worse, until ultimately the wall slides in. Ed found the solution by calling Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems.

The team at Northern Basement Systems inspected the basement and found a safe and reliable solution. They installed twelve PowerBraces along two walls and a cross beam to add support. These braces, set to the height of the basement wall, were placed against the wall then anchored into the floor. These zinc-plated steel beams combat and contain the pressure of the exterior soil, keeping the wall intact and secure. For a final touch, a cross bream was added to make sure that the shorter of the two walls had adequate support.

Ed can now rest easily knowing that his basement walls won’t bow or slide in. He made the right choice by fixing the problem before it became worse. The experts from Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems are dedicated to helping the local community secure its homes.

I have a raised ranch house. I have concerns in my garage area. It looks like one of the walls has some stress cracks and was shifted in a bit. I don't know if this has stopped moving but seems like it could be filled in etc. Was just looking for some advice and estimate for repairs. Thanks

Hello - I built a cabin on concrete piers that are set into ledge (the rebar for each peir is drilled 12 inches into the ledge), and I'm worried that I may not have made it stable enough to avoid shifting or becoming unstable down the road. i was wondering if you could look at the foundation and assess whether it needed stablizers to avoid any future problems. Thanks, Nick
