Job Stories From Plainfield, VT
RainChutes Keep Water Away From Foundation

Bruce had a problem on his hands. During heavy rain storms, water would seep right through Bruce’s concrete floor and dampen his bedroom carpet. After talking it over with his friend, Bruce was referred to Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems. After a free phone call, Matt Clark and his team agreed to go out and give Bruce a free estimate.

Bruce’s problem was a relatively common one. Many homeowners, from all around New England, face the problem of foundational leakages. However, in Bruce’s case there was a simplistic solution. The experts from Northern Basement Systems saw that backed-up rainwater could have been a main contributor to the seepage. They installed four RainChutes. A RainChute is a recessed downspout extension that sits flush with the ground. The RainChute flushes away leaves and debris so it doesn’t become clogged. These installations helped channel the water away from the foundation, reducing the likelihood that it would seep through the concrete.

Matt Clark knows that many times, a sump pump system can be the solution. Sump pumps are a great way to get pesky water out of the basement but sometimes, it just takes getting the rain water away from the foundation in the first place. Bruce is pleased that he called Matt Clark.

Storm Provides Dirty Basement Water. Matt Clark Provides Clean Solution

Yoka lived near a river. When a heavy storm came through town, the river flooded, pushing dirt and water through her stone wall. She knew she had to do something before the next big storm. After doing some research online, she found Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems and decided to give them a call. After the brief phone call, Matt Clark agreed to visit Yoka’s basement for a free estimate.

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 Yoka’s basement will be taken care of without ever being seen.

Yoka’s problem was not an uncommon one. Many New Englanders whether they live near a river or not, experience intrusive basement water and dirt. Yoka made the right choice. She now has peace of mind any time a storm rolls through town. Matt Clark and his team of experts are dedicated to keeping the Plainfield community safe and dry.

The Chimney Begins To Separate From The House

Andrew had a problem on his hands. His chimney started to pull away from his house. Andrew knew that this was a liability and decided to take action. After talking it over with his friends and family, one of his friends referred him to Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems.

Matt Clark and his team of experts arrived and inspected the chimney. It had several cracks in it and sure enough, was pulling away from the house. Such a problem was caused by settling soil from beneath the chimney. As some of the soil settled, the portion of the chimney resting upon it also settled. These shifts caused the chimney portions to physically separate. Matt Clark and his experts have seen this problem before, so they knew what to do. They installed four Push Piers to support the chimney’s foundation using standard brackets. The experts dug down to the chimney’s footing, installed the brackets and hydraulically pushed steel rods through the bracket and through the ground. The rods were pushed until they reached a competent layer of soil, deep below the surface. The weight was then transferred and the chimney was lifted back into its original position.

Andrew made the right choice by being proactive about his chimney. He can rest easily knowing that the foundation is in a much sturdier, safer condition.  Matt Clark is an expert in the world of foundation repair. He knows how the problem occurred and based on those occurrences, he can find the appropriate solution. Give Matt Clark a call for a free estimate today!

Project Location: Plainfield, VT
We live in an old, but renovated farmhouse in Plainfield. The basement is very old and we are seeing cracks in the foundation. We also have an old sump pump that could probably use some work/modifications and need to insulate a crawl space near the basement. We have a detached garage that also needs some work and is showing some cracking on the foundation.
Project Location: Plainfield, VT
I bought this house recently and wanted to get a quote on sealing foundation cracks and floor of the basement
Project Location: Plainfield, VT
Crack in basement foundation wall - I want to know if this is serious or if I can do a DIY repair. I did not observe water entering during recent heavy rain but am not 100% sure. The ground slopes from the upper window to the basement ground level - this is a walk out basement. Thanks!

Have water coming into basement when it rains.

We have some problems with the foundation of our barn.
Project Location: Plainfield, VT
I have a poured concrete foundation, a full height basement about 1100 ft.². It is completely on insulated, and somewhat damp; I don't know whether there is actual water coming in, or just very high humidity. I just bought the house so I'm sure I'll know more after living in it a year. I had an energy audit the recommended insulating the basement walls and sill plate with spray foam to improve efficiency and lower humidity. I am comparison shopping on that work, and also interested in your advice about including a basement that is damp. Looking forward to hearing from you
Project Location: Plainfield, VT
Hello - I'm wondering if you spray foam insulate place other than basements. If not, then you can disregard this whole message. We're looking to get an estimate to flash the top-plate of all four walls in our house that is currently under construction. It would be 2 eves (26' each) and 2 gables (36' each) for a total of 124 lineal feet. Width of top plates, with gaps is about 9 inches. I'm only look for an air seal so I think 1" flash would be enough. Thank you! Ryan 802-249-9115

In process of buying house with crawl space. Inspection notes disrupted partial vapor barrier and some disturbed piers related to excavated dirt too close to pier, likely occurred when addition added.
Project Location: Plainfield, VT
I was referred to you by my roofer, Jeff. I have some mold in the basement of my house and would love to schedule a consultation as soon as possible.
Project Location: Plainfield, VT
Our living room was originally built as a summer kitchen (late 1800's) over a crawl space. We would like to insulate the crawl space and possibly run plumbing under it.
