Job Stories From Franklin County, VT
Homeowners in Saint Albans, VT Protect Basement Against Gutter Water

Gutters are supposed to protect the home against rainfall. But for Jason and Lisa C. of Saint Albans, water leaving the gutter downspout actually compounded their basement’s leakage problems. Jason and Lisa typed “basement waterproofers” into Google and found Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems. After browsing the website, the couple decided this looked like a company they could trust to fix their wet basement problem. They set up an appointment for a free estimate and inspection with waterproofing expert Justin Lanfranconi.

Justin informed the couple of the trouble their gutters were causing, and advised them to incorporate a solution with a brand new waterproofing system. Northern Basements team came out to complete the repairs. They installed a SuperSump sump pump, discharge lines with an IceGuard anti-freeze device and a LawnScape drainage outlet. Together these products remove water and carry it a safe distance away from the home. The IceGuard ensures that frozen pipes will not be detrimental to the system. To fix the gutter issue, the team attached a RainChute downspout extension. This way, instead of dumping water right next to the house, saturating the ground and allowing water into the basement, gutter water would be discharged at a safe distance.

Jason and Lisa were thankful that the team of experts identified the water sources and solved their problems with the new system.

Homeowners in Saint Albans, VT Reinforces Basement Ceiling and Wall

Greg and Judy W.’s Saint Albans, VT home showed signs of structural disrepair in two places. Sagging support beams and floor joists hung from the ceiling on one side of the basement, and on the other, a concrete wall was bowed and crumbling. Since Greg and Judy could see these issues, they must be serious. They found Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems online and decided to contact them to set up an appointment. Foundation expert Michael Doherty conducted a free inspection of the home and communicated his findings.

Foreman Neil Sayers and his team installed several products to give Greg’s basement the support it needed. They used four steel Smart Jacks to reinforce the drooping support beams and floor joists. To fix the wall, they used ShotCrete, which effectively sprays concrete through a hose at high velocity instead of placing it into a form, and is very handy for an upright surface like a wall. They also attached three PowerBrace wall supports to counteract the inward pressure and help straighten the wall over time.

Greg and Judy were glad for a solution to their problem, and they had a friendly team of experts around to fix it properly! Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems is, in their eyes, the go-to company for structural issues in the home. And while they hope they are all set for now, they can trust the team again in the future if need be!

Home Show in Saint Albans, VT Provides Answers for a Leaky Basement

Pete W. was combating a leaky basement in his Saint Albans, VT home. While attending a local home show, Pete discussed his problem with several members of the Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems family. Their knowledge and demeanor impressed Pete and scheduled a free inspection of his home with waterproofing expert Justin Lanfranconi.

Justin recommended several products to solve Pete’s water issues. After Pete agreed, Northen Basements team installed an entire waterproofing system. Lateral pipes and discharge lines transport water, and a SuperSump sump pump removes the water. IceGuard protection stops frozen pipes from flooding, so a Vermont winter won’t reverse Pete’s repairs.

Pete is glad he attended the home show and found a waterproofing company that he can trust. 

Several Inches of Reoccurring Basement Water in Richford, VT

Meredith P. found herself continuously using a shopvac to eliminate water that was seeping into her basement. Growing tired of repeatedly sucking the water out, she figured there must be someone who could help. After doing some research she found Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems.

After accessing the situation, Matt Clark’s experts installed a SuperSump pump system with a cast iron pump, a liner, an airtight lid with airtight floor drain, a CleanPump Stand, and a WaterWatch alarm system. A discharge line was installed up the wall of the foundation allowing the water to exit. With the basement well-equipped, the final touch was to install a Sanidry XP Basement Air System to keep the basement’s humidity level low.

After converging with Meredith P., her basement is safe and dry. No longer will she have to shopvac her basement to keep it dry.

Super Sump Pump & Water Guard in Swanton, Vermont

A home in Swanton, Vermont was in need of some help from our team of experts.  The home would get water in the basement when there was a hard rain or a lot of snow melting.  It got to the point where the homeowner decided, to be safe, they would keep their refrigerator on a pallet.  Giving it 3-4 inches of clearance from the water.  The water also made it so the children of the home had to keep all their toys off the floor or be in danger of losing them to water damage. One of Matt's top System Design Specialist came to the home and accessed the situation.  The specialist came up with a plan for the homeowner and our production team went to work right away executing the plan.  Northern Basement Systems would install a WaterGuard sub-floor drainage system.  This will collect the water before it enters the basement floor.  The system will direct the water to the SuperSump Pump.  The Super Sump Pump then will pump out the water and discharge it away from the home.

Hanna Rd in Franklin
I have a small pad of concrete that has sunken, creating a low spot near my breezeway and basement. The water pools and runs into my breezeway and basement. I would like to raise the pad and divert the water back away from the building.
in Franklin
The floor of the house is a 4 inch cement slab (with radiant heat tubing)covered in ceramic tile that is independent of the frost wall/foundation that the house sits on. The slab has settled and the ouside wall has not, therefore creating an uneven surface next to the inside walls of the house.
