Alton, NH, Home is Waterproofed & Dehumidified
For Ruth from Alton, having a wet basement was nothing new. But it became time something got done to ratify that situation. Ruth went to the internet to find a way to fix her basement, and this brought her to us. Once contacted, we did a full inspection to find just what was causing the problem. After locating the issue, we laid out what could be done to fix the problem and how much these options would cost. Ruth decided on what she wanted done, and we got to work! To start work on the basement, we dug out the perimeter of the foundation. This allowed for us to insert our WaterGuard system, which catches all water entering the basement through the floor or walls. This caught water is then lead to a sump pump, that pushes the water outside. Once outside, to ensure the water will flow even in freezing temperatures, we installed an IceGuard filter to do just that. Finally, we positioned a SaniDry XP dehumidifier in the basement. This dehumidifier will keep any remaining or future moisture out of the air. Ruth no longer has a wet basement!

Crack in Eliot, ME, Basement is Sealed With Flexispan
Linda from Eliot, ME, was having issues with water entering her basement through a crack in the wall. This crack was 1.6’ long, and was an excellent place for water to flow through from the surrounding earth. To seal this crack, and prevent any water from leaking through in the future, we used Flexispan. This involves covering the crack with a special flexible sealant. Then this sealant is covered with a unique Flexispan foam material. Finally a coating of sealant is applied over the foam material, sealing it against the wall. This crack won’t ever leak water into this basement again.
Leaky Basement In Kittery Point, ME Waterproofed With SuperSump
A homeowner in Kittery Point was having trouble with their foundation letting water into their basement. Needing professional help with this issue, they started to ask around for ways to stop the water. They soon got referred to TC Hafford Basement Systems, who they contacted right away to receive their free estimate. The homeowner decided on what work they wanted done, and we dispatched our crew to get to work! We began by digging out the current floor of the basement. This allowed us to pour a new slab of concrete. This new basement floor would hold up against water much more effectively than the previous stone floor the homeowner had. We left a sump in the slab to allow us easy installation of a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will collect the water gathering in the basement, and push it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. On the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe piece to the discharge line. The IceGuard will allow water to continue to flow from the pump, even if the lower end of the pipe becomes blocked by ice or other debris. This homeowner now has a dry basement with a fresh slab, that will remain dry for years to come, thanks to SuperSump!
Basement in Milton, NH Sealed With FelxiSpan
A homeowner in Milton was experiencing trouble with water gathering in his basement. This water was clearly entering through a crack that was forming in the basement wall. After hearing about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a friend and satisfied customer, the homeowner gave us a call to come fix their problem. To start with the solution, we applied a layer of sealant in and over the crack. This first layer holds back any water trying to enter through the opening. We then laid a foam pad over the sealant to further protect from water entering the basement. Finally, we spread a layer of sealant over the first two layers to hold them in place and completely seal out any water that may try and seep into the basement. This setup will allow the FlexiSpan to not only prevent water from entering the basement, but it is flexible, so it can shift with the walls. This shifting capability ensures the crack stays sealed no matter what. This homeowner now has a dry basement.
Wet Basement In Milton, NH Protected By WaterGuard
Jen from Milton was having trouble with water pooling in her basement. This water could easily lead to water damage or mold growth and she needed something done about it. She got online and searched for a solution, soon coming across TC Hafford Basement Systems. She contacted us and we got her a free estimate within a few days! Starting work on the basement, we dug out the inside perimeter of the basement. This cleared space for us to lay down the WaterGuard pipe system. This pipe will capture all the water entering through the walls or floor and direct it to the sump. In the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will take the gathered water and force it up through a PVC discharge line and out of the basement. Finally, we attached an UltraSump backup battery to the SuperSump. This battery will ensure the pump operates normally even during a power outage. Now Jen will have a dry basement no matter how hard it rains!
Wet Basement in Berwick, ME, Revitalized With New System
In Berwick, Maine, Andrea had an existing sump pump and dehumidifier, but still experienced a wet basement whenever it rained. After searching online for a solution, Andrea came to us. Once our representative Mike Morin took a look, a team was sent out to get to work. TC Hafford started by installing a WaterGuard basement waterproofing system around the perimeter of the basement. This system is used to collect any water that might attempt to flow into the basement through the walls or up through the floor. This WaterGuard system was then connected through to a newly installed SuperSump sump pump, which replaced the old sump. This new sump pump pumps any water fed into it to the outside. Finally, the crew used an IceGuard pipe outside the house to prevent the water from being blocked. The IceGuard is a special piece of pipe that allows water to flow even when the rest of the pipe is blocked off by ice or other debris. After finishing these additions to the basement, Andrea now no longer has to worry about water in the slightest.
Homeowner in Wolfeboro, NH, Upgrades Basement Windows
In Wolfeboro, Deborah needed new windows in her basement. The old windows just weren’t cutting it anymore, and were allowing water to slip into the basement. After finding TC Hafford online, Deborah contacted us to get a free estimate for the window replacement, as well as waterproofing her basement. After Deborah decided to both replace the windows and waterproof the basement, TC Hafford got to work. The three old windows were removed from the basement, and three EverLast windows were inserted into the old ports. Two of these three new windows received a SunHouse window guard. This is a structure that is attached to the exterior of the window, to keep water and debris away from the window, while still allowing sunlight to enter the basement. TC Hafford then dug up the perimeter of the basement floor, and installed a WaterGuard system, as well as a TripleSafe sump pump. The WaterGuard system is a special pipe that will capture water entering the basement, and guide it to the sump pump. The TripleSafe sump is fitted with three different pumps, to guarantee a dry basement. These new installations have given Deborah peace of mind when it comes to her basement.

A couple in York Harbor was experiencing trouble with moisture in their basement. Water was leaking in through the walls and floor, and because the homeowner was looking to put their home on the market, they needed to stop this leak if they wanted to sell for their full asking price. They were soon in touch with TC Hafford Basement Systems to get the job done. After giving the homeowners their free estimate, we got to work! We began by excavating the interior perimeter of the basement floor. This allowed us to install our WaterGuard pipe system, which was covered over with loose rocks and cement. This conceals the system inside the floor without diminishing functionality. The WaterGuard will catch the water entering the basement through the walls or floor, guiding it out of the basement through the sump. Now the homeowners can put their home on the market for full price, with a dry basement!
