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.

Looking to replace Sump pump only
Project Location: Saint Albans, VT
Basement continues to flood (started this summer). Never had issues in the 20 years in this house until this year. Seems (guessing) like the perimeter drain is plugged as the water seems to be coming from the ground up (versus sides of the basement). I've managed to get rid of the water by using a pump with a hose resting in the floor drain pipe. Is it too late in the season to address this?
Project Location: Saint Albans, VT
Our home was built in 1900. The home sits on a slope, and the basement wall that faces uphill is experiencing water seep and concrete flaking. There is also a chimney that is no longer in use that appears to be collecting water in the basement, but we aren't sure where the water is coming in from.

The first floor/finished basement of my raised ranch house flooded for the first time ever. I want to evaluate the cost of ensuing that it does not happen again.
Project Location: Saint Albans, VT
Hello! My basement currently has several areas of concern. Some water comes in along the back wall, I think from the window. Water seeps up from the floor. I believe some even comes in through the garage! I think a French drain along the back and gutters along the garage would help but I'd like to know what a professional might say! Hope you can help, Kristen

Small cracks in basement floor. Looking to seal cracks to prevent water from entering basement
Project Location: Saint Albans, VT
We had water in our basement for the first time since we've lived here (this is our second winter here). This happened Friday when we had the warm weather and rain. The water looked like it was coming up from the basement floor and we couldn't find another obvious inlet for the water. We're worried about what the next thaw will mean for our basement! The only work we've had done recently was a natural gas line placed on the same side of the house and that was in October I believe. Thank you!
Project Location: Saint Albans, VT
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.
