Water had created quite the mess in a basement in Milton, Vermont.  A nice finished basement with carpet flooring became a basement with soaking wet carpet.  The homeowner contacted Matt Clark's Northern Basement System with empahsis on doing whatever it takes to make sure it would never happen again.  Matt Clark's Northern Basement Systems installed a Full Perimeter WaterGuard System, which will go around the perimeter of the basement and collect any water entering the basement.  A TripleSafe Sump Pump was put in to take all of the water the WaterGuard collects and pumps it out of the basement down a outside discharge, away from the home.  The owner of the home also decided to have a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier installed to keep the humidity level in check.  The basement is now completely dry and has a nice 55% humidity level.

Job Stories From Milton, VT
Foundation failed

The team Matt Clark's Northern Basement Systems was en route to this property when the call came in from our client. Her existing basement wall already bowed in from hydrostatic pressure and mother nature, collapsed. Our priority was to get the foundation stable. Matt's team quickly called Dig Safe. They provided us with the locations of danger, such as electrical wires, so we would not hit them while doing the excavation. We got up there the next day to asses the situation. It was a complete disaster. The weight of the wall crushed her furnace, among other things in the basement. The team installed smart jacks to support the main carrying beam. We reconstructed the wall of the foundation then applied Tamko, a waterproofing membrane used for below-grade foundations. The next step was the installation of power braces to further the support of the new wall and foundation. The homeowner now can rest at ease, knowing her foundation walls are currently supported.

Putting A Bowing Wall In Its Rightful Place in Milton, VT

Chris had a big problem facing his house. One of the basement walls had begun to bow. He wondered what was causing this bow and wondered what he could do to fix it. After looking online, he found Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems.

Matt Clark and his team of experts knew exactly what was causing the wall to bow. It was the soil just outside the basement that was expanding and putting pressure on the wall. When the wall bows too much, the whole wall can slide in putting the entire house in jeopardy. The best course of action was to install eight PowerBraces along the basement wall. The PowerBrace is a steel I-beam that can adjust to any basement’s height. Once a PowerBrace is anchored into the ceiling and ground, it will fix any bowing wall and over time, force the bowed wall sections back to their original positions.

Chris made the right call by reaching out to Matt Clark and his experts. They’ve seen many cracked and bowed walls and know how to handle them safely and securely. If you’ve got a bowing wall like Chris and so many others, don’t wait to call! Matt Clark can help fix the situation before it becomes dangerous.

Increasing Home Value With A Basement Upgrade

Rachel was getting ready for a big step in her life: selling her house. She had one impediment before should could put it on the market, the basement. The basement experienced leaks from time to time. She didn’t want this to deter a potential buyer so she contacted Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems.

Matt Clark’s team of experts went to the house to evaluate the situation. After spotting the leaks, the team knew that they could help her out. For a long-term solution, the experts decided to install DryTrak and a TripleSafe pump system. The TripleSafe pump system includes three pumps, a primary powerful pump and two backup pumps in case of a power failure. The DryTrak system runs alongside the base of the basement walls and collects incoming water and channels it directly into the TripleSafe pump system. From there, the water is pumped to the outdoor surface through a discharge line. With all the installations set in place, the basement will be dry for many years to come.

Rachel did what so many home owners have done before her, and she won’t be the last. Having a safe, dry basement can make any home’s value increase.  Fixing a basement problem may seem like a daunting task but Matt Clark and his team of knowledgeable experts are here to help!

We own an 1850's farmhouse that has a small cellar with cement floor, this area houses the mechanical systems. There is a crawl space accessed through the cellar wall, it covers the other half of the house. It is a dirt floor and has a plastic moisture barrier. Looking for recommendations and possible remedies to ensure proper sealing of the crawlspace and ensure moisture is being kept at bay, as well as a general inspection of the space as a new homeowner.

We have an uninsulated dirt crawl space underneath the 1830s part of our home, it's cold and smells musty. Interested in getting that sealed and making any improvements to the full basement area to improve the musty smells seeping up into the house. There is also another dirt crawl space underneath the newer addition (1992) - we'd also be interested in possibly sealing/insulating that area. Thanks

We've just purchased this house. Basement doesn't appear wet per se, but feels quite humid with some mildew smell, especially when we're not running dehumidifiers. Basement is unfinished, but is drywalled, with no appearance of water damage to the walls that we've seen. We're looking to finish the basement, but first want to know things can stay dry.

Project Location: Milton, VT
I own/built a 24'x32' cape style home with a walk out basement. It was built on a hill side in 1975. The basement is constructed of 8" cement blocks. The block walls return in on both front corners of the house, while the middle portion of this front basement wall is conventionally framed with 2"x6" studs covered with plywood and half log siding. This 32' long wall rests on a 4' frost wall. There is a cantilevered front porch that overhangs the walk out basement by 8', and runs the full 32' length of the house. There is 8' of head room under this porch. Over the past couple of years I began to notice some settlement issues in the basement. There is step cracking in the front half of both basement side walls. The cracks are in the 1/16" to 1/8" wide range, and run from the top of the wall to the floor near the front of the basement. The front quarter of the basement floor has also cracked irregularly across its width. I am looking for a reasonable solution to this issue as quickly as possible. Thank you.
