A 1980's home in Rutland, Vermont was suffering from flooding, especially during snowmelt and rainstorms. After fighting the water for years, the homeowner booked a FREE ESTIMATE and we proposed a solution that would keep their large basement dry for years to come! 

We installed TWO SuperSump Pump Systems, 175 feet of WaterGuard underneath the perimeter edge of the basement floor, and a discharge line with a LawnScape Outlet and IceGuard to protect against a frozen discharge line. The SuperSump Pump contains a Primary Pump and an UltraSump Battery Back-Up Pump to protect against power outages, tripped breakers, and primary pump failure. Additionally, these pumps contain WaterWatch Alarm Systems that will sound if the water rises past the point in which the pump would normally kick on. 

We are committed to find you the best solution for you and your basement! Call 855-DRY-TIME for a FREE ESTIMATE

Job Stories From Rutland, VT
Keeping Kitchen Pipes from Freezing

Freezing pipes are a problem that many homeowners face at one time or another. In Maxine H.’s case, it was caused by a cold crawlspace underneath her kitchen. After years of freezing pipes, Maxine decided enough was enough and called Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems to help her solve the problem.

Matt suggested to Maxine that we remove all debris from the crawlspace, insulate it with spray foam insulation, and then seal it up with CleanSpace. With these two solutions, the spray foam helped keep the cold out and the heat in, and the CleanSpace created an airtight environment to help aid the spray foam in doing its job.

Forman Neil Sayers and his crew were able to get the job done in just one day and left Maxine and her family with a warmer crawlspace and pipes that won’t freeze!

Wet Basement Problems Fixed Quickly and Efficiently in Rutland

A wet basement can cost a homeowner a lot of money in damage and causes a lot of headaches. Nate F. of Rutland was having exactly these problems when he called Northern Basement Systems and learned that the cure to his headaches was much easier than he suspected.

During the inspection, Matt showed Nate that with the patented WaterGuard system keeping basements dry is easy. WaterGuard is a piping system engineered specifically to solve basement water problems effectively without having to worry about clogging from soils under the floor. To pump the water out of the basement Matt suggested a SuperSump which can pump 2,650 gallons per hour smoothly and quietly.

The installation crew was able to get the job done in just one day and now Nate has a dry basement and is headache-free.    

Bowing Wall and a Wet Basement in Rutland

When Daniel C. of Rutland first called Matt Clark’s Northern Basement Systems, his home was suffering from two main problems: a wet basement and a bowing basement wall. Daniel already had three sump pumps that just weren’t getting the job done and didn’t know the best way to fix the bowing wall.

After the inspection, a plan to fix both problems was made. Heavy-duty power Braces zinc-plated steel beams custom-fit to any basement wall were suggested to stabilize the wall. Along with supporting the wall in its current position, the PowerBraces also allow for the possibility to improve the wall by tightening them during dry seasons. Then Waterguard around the perimeter of the basement and two Triplesafe pumps (due to the size of the cellar) were to be installed to keep the basement dry. The solution allowed for all water to go directly into the Waterguard and then flow to either of the Triplesafes to be pumped out of the basement safely and efficiently.

Daniel was very pleased with the job and was reassured that his basement wall was now more structurally sound and that his basement would stay dry.

Basement in 1950s ranch. Seems to have had moisture issues before. Wanted to possibly waterproof and finish some spaces for workouts and crafts
Project Location: Rutland, VT
We have two square holes in our basement floor, about 1sqft each. During the last heavy rain we got about 2 weeks ago now, we had about 3-4 inches of water in the basement that we decided came up from those holes. I'd like to find out what they're for and if we can have them covered or plugged to stop this from happening again.
