A Saint Albans, Vermont homeowner contacted Matt Clark's Northern Basement Systems, with interest in the encapsulation system. One of our trained system design specialists visited the home to see if the product was the best fit for the space, take measurements, and provide the homeowner with a FREE project proposal and estimate. Next, our team of installation specialists visited the home to install the system. First, they installed the Drainage Matting to channel any water underneath towards the drain, to prevent pooling of water under the CleanSpace. Next, the specialist installed a SmartDrain, that collects and drains the water below. This system also includes a WaterWatch Alarm to alert you if there is ever an issue before the water begins to flood out of the system. Lastly, the team installed CleanSpace Liner on top of the Drainage Matting. CleanSpace has a 25-year warranty against rips and tears, this durable 20-mil poly-reinforced liner converts your crawl space or basement into a usable storage area.

This space is now protected from flooding and humidity for years, making it more usable, clean, and will prevent molding. Call 855-DRY-TIME, to schedule a FREE ESTIMATE and get your basement or crawlspace encapsulated!

Job Stories From Saint Albans, VT
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. 

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!

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.

When I bought my house just over 10 years ago a water proofing system was installed by GMBS. The systems has worked to dry my basement. Though the sump system has not been serviced for a few years as they are out of business. Also I have noticed settlement at exterior foundation as well as stones and such in the trenches. I have an old house with stone foundation which looks to need re-pointing and/or insulating. I would like to have someone provide an estimate of what may need to be done. Thank you.

Leak in basement wall.

Heavy rains, recently, caused water to seep up through the floor boards in the main living area of our ground level condo unit. The area that showed evidence of a problem is about 3' x 5'. The unit rests slightly below ground level, presumably on a slab. We have only lived in the unit since March of this year. This is the first time we have experienced this problem.

Wanting to see if we can better waterproof our basement so we can partially finish it.
Project Location: Saint Albans, VT
Our basement has a large crack in the wall. It leaks water when snow melts and heavy rain. It is near the stairs to the basement in the garage. Temporary solutions are failing. The wall is shifting inward as time goes on. On the outside the soil slopes down so water has been collecting there for years.
