Typically using their basement for basic storage, this Durham, NH homeowner needed a way to protect their basement from leaking moisture. After living with a damp basement floor for some time, they called us at TC Hafford Basement Systems to take care of this problem as quickly as possible. Our crew got to work burying WaterGuard piping around the perimeter of the concrete basement floor. These pipes, below a fresh layer of concrete, will act to pull in any leaking moisture traveling through the foundation. This water is then guided through the piping to the nearby SuperSump pump our crew installed. Here the water will be forced out of the home through a discharge line. The discharge line leaving the home is fitted with an IceGuard section that will protect the basement from any blocked water that may flow back up the line.
With their newly waterproofed basement, this homeowner can now safely use the space for storage without fearing moisture causing damage to their property.
Homeowners were looking for a more permanent solution for a small dirt crawlspace covered by a tarp. They dealt with a lot of moisture in the crawl space and they knew it was effecting the overall health of their home. TC Hafford came in and installed a CleanSpace Vapor Barrier, a specially designed liner that keeps out pests, humidity, and most importantly moisture.
These homeowners now have peace of mind.

With a musty, dirt floor crawlspace below their home, this York, ME homeowner wanted to make use of the space for storage. They called us at TC Hafford and our crew was able to provide the barrier they were searching for. To keep out moisture and debris to allow for safe storage, a CleanSpace liner was used to encapsulate the interior of the crawlspace after a Drainage Matting was laid across the floor. This will form a vapor barrier capable of keeping moisture out of the crawlspace interior while enabling any trapped moisture to drain back through the ground below. Next, Spray Foam was used to fill in gaps between the joists above the crawlspace. This will provide better insulation for the home and keep any temperature control within the home efficient.
Now that their crawlspace has been sealed off from the elements, this homeowner can make use of the space for storage without needing to worry about their property sustaining any long-term damage.
With moisture easily able to enter this property owner’s basement, they were unable to make much use of the space. Looking to remedy this problem, they contacted us at TC Hafford Basement Systems, and we were soon able to give the homeowner a free estimate. Liking what we could offer, they gave our crew the go-ahead to begin work on excavating the old, leaking slab with a fresh slab of concrete. This new slab, however, was fitted with WaterGuard piping around the outer edge, buried just below the surface. These pipes will capture any leaking moisture in the future and guide it directly to the nearby TripleSafe sump pump. Finally, a CleanSpace wall system was put in around the exterior of the basement, to seal any moisture that might enter through the walls and brighten up the interior of the space.
With these additions to their home, this property owner should now be able to utilize their basement however they please without the need to fear water damage. The WaterGuard system will ensure this basement floor remains dry for years to come!
