This wonderful home is nestled in the beautiful mountain of Richmond, Vermont.  Plenty of privacy and amazing views.  The basement on the other hand was just a mess and a constant nuisance to the home owner.  Water would get in the basement and make it a very unusable space.  Plus the humidity was very high.  After a conversation with the home owner and a site inspection Northern Basement sent out a team to put a permanent fix on the home owners basement issues.  They installed a full Water Guard perimeter System, a Super Sump Pump. and a State of the Art SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier.  The home owner can rest at ease now and has a wonderful permanent dry basement.

Super Sump Pump, SaniDRy Dehumidifier, & Water Guard in Richmond, Vermont

  The home owners wonderful home is nestled in the beautiful mountains of Richmond, Vermont.  Plenty of privacy and amazing views.  The basement on the other hand was just a mess and a constant nuisance to the home owner.  Water would get in the basement and make it a very unusable space.  Plus the humidity was high enough that a very good consumer brand model couldn't keep up with it at all.  They look far and long to find someone to help them out and finally came across Matt Clark's Northern Basement Systems.     

   After a conversation with the home owner and a site inspection Northern Basement sent out a team to put a permanent fix on the home owners basement issues.  They installed a full Water Guard perimeter System, a Super Sump Pump. and a State of the Art SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier.  The Water Guard will take the water and redirect it to the Super Sump Pump.  The Super Sump Pump then takes the water and pumps it out of the basement to a discharge line out and away from the home.  The SaniDry Dehumidifier is a state of the art dehumidifier.   It's the world's most efficient, high-performance dehumidifier, without a bulky heat exchange core.  It will keep your basement below 55%, so mold won't stand a chance.  as a high-efficiency ENERGY STAR certified dehumidifier, the Sedona removes more moisture(100 pints per day) for less electricity cost than conventional models.  The Sedona also drains automatically into your Water Guard. The home owner can rest at ease now and has a wonderful permanent dry basement.

A Healthy Humidity Level For this Richmond Crawlspace

Louisa reached out to Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems with a particular question in mind. She wanted to know what would be an appropriate level of humidity for her crawlspace. Matt told her to monitor the humidity levels both in the crawlspace and outdoors as well. She called back the next day and reported the readings inside averaged around 68%, while the outdoor average was about 35%. They both agreed that something had to be done.

Matt Clark and his experts went to Louisa’s house to take a look at her crawlspace. After inspecting the area, they decided to install their SaniDry dehumidifier, CleanSpace Liner, and CLeanSpace Drainage Matting. The CleanSpace keeps the enclosed area’s temperature controlled. The SaniDry unit helps not only keep the humidity level low but regulates the levels in case it gets too small. The goal for any crawlspace is to have a healthy level of humidity. With these and just a few other installations in place, Louisa’s crawlspace fosters a healthy humidity level.

Matt Clark is an expert in all things regarding basements. He has seen hundreds of crawlspaces and knows how to analyze and treat each one. Louisa made the right choice. She can rest comfortably, knowing that her crawlspace will be safe and dry.

Reinforcing a Bowing Wall in Richmond, VT

Patrick was facing a big problem: one of the walls in his basement had begun to bow. He wasn’t sure why this was happening or what he could do to stop it. However, he did know that a bowing wall is a big threat. So he decided to get professional help. After doing some research, he contacted Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems.

Matt Clark and his experts explained why the wall was bowing. When the soil just beyond the basement wall starts to shift and expand, it puts immense pressure on the wall. When enough pressure is applied the wall begins to crack and bow. If too much pressure is applied, the wall could cave in all together putting the entire house at risk! So Matt Clark and the experts got right to work by installing two PowerBraces and joist reinforcements to support those PowerBraces. These Power Braces, set to the height of the basement wall, were placed against the wall and were anchored into the floor. These zinc-plated steel rods will combat and contain the pressure of the exterior soil, keeping the wall intact and secure.

Patrick won’t have to worry about his wall caving in anymore. The team of experts has given him a permanent peace of mind. Matt Clark has seen many bowing walls throughout his career. He knows the severity of the job and takes it seriously. If you’ve got a similar bowing wall situation, don’t wait until it’s too late. Give Matt Clark a call today!

Keeping The Duplex Basement Dry

Molly owns property in Richmond. She wanted to increase the value and safety of a duplex that she owned by installing a sump pump and a wall system. She had several local vendors in mind but ultimately reached out to Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems.

Mark Clark and his team of experts went out to inspect the duplex’s basement and knew what to install. They installed their SuperSump pump system, equipped with a cast iron pump, a liner, an airtight lid, an airtight floor drain and a WaterWatch alarm system. The experts surrounded the basement with their Waterguard system. This gutter-like device collects and pushes the incoming water to the pump. From the pump, the water is pushed through a discharge line safely away from the building. The final touch was to install a CleanSpace wall system to keep the basement safe and dry.

Molly made the right decision. Matt Clark helped increase the value of her property while also making sure that it stays dry. Matt Clark has served the Richmond area many times and is always happy to help this community.

Greetings. We have a crack in our foundation that needs to be repaired. We also seem to have water coming in one of our lower rooms but cannot find the cause. Want to see if it is related to foundation or not.

My husband and I have a 200 year old house with a stone foundation. When we got it inspected, the inspector noticed that the foundation wall was bowing and needed monitoring and repairs/possible partial replacement. We wanted to get a quote to see the cost and what was involved in fixing the wall.

My wife and I are in the process of buying a home in Richmond, where we've lived for the past few years, and are looking to acquire some quotes for foundation repairs to use in our negotiations with the sellers. I'm an architect at Birdseye and have done a few walkthroughs, so I have a decent sense of what's going on. The home is an 1830s farmhouse with a stone foundation, one wall of which (the Rt 2 side) has been replaced with concrete. The wall adjacent to the driveway however has a significant bow (at least 1ft) and there's evidence of water filtering through and washing out the fines at the base. There are also rotted/insect damaged sill plates in the timber frame that would also need replacing once the foundation repairs are made, likely with the help of another specialist or carpenter. If you could come by in the near future to take a look and provide a quote that would be great, I just need to coordinate the time with our realtor. Thanks so much!

We have very dense soil and live near a stream. In past years, we have experienced flooding in our basement. We would like to waterproof our basement so that we can finish it and make the space useable.
Project Location: Richmond, VT
We've got a basement with a concrete floor, unfinished. There is at least one leak on one wall. We are planning to do a big renovation next summer but in the meantime we want to make the basement useable as a workout room/TV room for our kids. So we'd like to spend as little money as possible to get the basement dry and useable.
Project Location: Richmond, VT
I have lived here for 17 years and never had water in the basement. On Friday May 11th during the storm, part of my basement flooded.
Project Location: Richmond, VT
I have 50 to 70 to 100 gals of water coming in my basement almost every day. Increased dramatically after having a well drilled last fall. Taking this out by hand every day. Help! Part of the basement is supposed to be living space, so I need a solution that will keep it absolutely dry. I was looking at your Super Sump Pump System. Wondering what an estimate would be for that. Also, if that will not keep water from coming into basement space, do you offer curtain/French drain? Or drainage system at foundation? It is a concrete block foundation. There is a system in place at least 15 years old, which has obviously failed. Please send estimates and how soon this work could possibly be done. I am in desperate rush! Thx. Please e-mail. Thank you.
