Moisture Problem In Farmington, NH, Gets Resolved By TC Hafford
David from Farmington was having a moisture problem in his basement. This moisture was causing a smell in the basement, likely due to mold.

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!
York Harbor, ME Basement Protected By WaterGuard
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!
Crack in Lebanon, ME, Basement Sealed Permanently
Steve from Lebanon started to notice a crack forming in his basement wall. This crack was starting to let water into the basement, and he wanted to fix this as soon as possible. Shortly after an internet search, Steve found TC Hafford Basement Systems and gave us a call. We inspected the crack, and quickly got to work applying FlexiSpan to fix the problem. To install Flexispan, we apply a sealant to the crack, to block water trying to enter through the crack. Then we cover this sealant with a foam strip, to further contain water that might enter along the edges of the crack. Finally, another layer of sealant is placed over the foam to completely lock out any water. The homeowner no longer needs to worry about this crack.
Moisture Dealt With Properly in a Sanbornville, NH Home
A homeowner in Sanbornville was having problems with water gathering in their basement. It wasn’t a lot of water, roughly 1/16 of an inch, but water nonetheless. The homeowner needed a way to fix this problem, so they got online and searched for the solution. TC Hafford was that solution. We sent a representative to talk with the homeowner about options for how to fix the basement, and they decided to go with ThermalDry Flooring. This is a special interlocking floor tile that adds two layers between you and your concrete basement floor. This will help keep water out of the basement, as well as not show any signs of the moisture on the surface of the new floor. This homeowner now doesn’t need to worry about a wet basement floor.
Sump Pump In Moody, ME Basement Replaced With TripleSafe
A homeowner in Moody had a sump pump that would regularly back up. It just wasn’t powerful enough to push out all of the water that gathered in the basement. Needing to upgrade to a better sump pump, he contacted TC Hafford Basement Systems after seeing an ad for us on his television. We gave him a free estimate, then we got to work! Upon arriving at the home, we needed to remove the old pump from the sump. After making space, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump into where the old sump was. The TripleSafe pump houses three separate pumps which each have a purpose. The first is the primary pump, which is used for most of the water. The secondary pump is for when the primary pump can’t handle all the water or malfunctions for any reason. The third and final pump is battery-operated and is for when the power goes out in the house. The TripleSafe will keep this basement dry, no matter the amount of rain. To finish this project, on the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe piece to the discharge coming from the sump pump. This IceGuard will allow water to escape the pipe should the lower end of the line become blocked by ice or other debris. Worrying about their sump pump is now a worry of the past for this homeowner!
East Wakefield, NH, Basement Sealed With FlexiSpan
Dana from East Wakefield was having a problem with a couple of cracks that had formed in his basement. These two cracks would leak water into the basement during any heavy rain, and Dana needed something to be done about this. He searched the internet for a solution, and found it; TC Hafford Basement Systems. He contacted us immediately, and we sent a representative to give a free estimate of what could be done, and how much it would cost. After discussing options, the homeowner made his decision and we got to work. We stated the process of fixing the cracks by filling each crack with a sealant. This sealant is the first step of three for the installation of FlexiSpan. Secondly, we cover this sealant with a foam pad, this pad covers the crack completely and helps prevent water from leaking in around the first layer of sealant. Finally, the foam is covered over with a layer of sealant. This sealant holds it all in place, and acts as a final line of defense against water. The way FlexiSpan is structured allows for it to shift, should the wall around the crack alter at all; hence the name, FlexiSpan. Now this homeowner no longer needs to worry about water entering through these two cracks, they have been completely sealed off from outside moisture.
Damp Crawlspace In West Newfield, ME Sealed With CleanSpace
A couple in West Newfield was experiencing flooding in their crawlspace during heavy rains. This moisture could lead to not only damage, but mold growth; which could then cause health issues for the inhabitants. The water was coming in through the dirt floor rather easily, and the two needed a way to hold back the moisture that was entering. They soon found the answer to their problem online, with TC Hafford Basement Systems. We heard from them shortly after and had a representative take a look at the crawlspace to give a free estimate on what we could do and how much it would cost. The couple decided on what work they wanted done, and our crew started the project! We installed a SmartSump sump pump into the crawlspace to pump out any water that found its way inside. Next, we laid a Drainage Matting in around the inside edge of the crawlspace to hold back moisture coming in through the walls, allowing for it to drain back into the soil. Finally, we encapsulated the entire crawlspace, save for the ceiling, with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner completely locks out moisture trying to come in through the floor or walls. Any moisture coming in this way will now never see the interior of the crawlspace. Now this couple has a moisture free crawlspace and peace of mind!
