WaterGuard Installation Keeps Famington, NH Basement water-Free
When this homeowner in Farmington, NH was having basement moisture issues, they were unsure how to approach the problem. The water was leaking in through their concrete foundation and gathering across the floor. The homeowner searched online for a way to keep the water out and soon discovered TC Hafford Basement Systems. They called us to hear what their options were and we dispatched our crew to give them a free estimate. When our installation crew arrived at the home later, they needed to install WaterGuard piping to waterproof this basement. This began with a shallow trench being excavated into the perimeter of the concrete floor. The WaterGuard piping was laid down within this trench and buried beneath a fresh layer of concrete. These pipes have slits along their lower edges, allowing leaking moisture to enter the pipes before reaching the surface of the basement floor in the future. This water is guided through the WaterGuard and fed directly into the sump to be removed from the home. With their WaterGuard protection installed, this homeowner no longer needs to worry about their basement flooding even during light rainfall. Their new waterproofing will make sure of that!
Polyurethane Injection Seals Crack in Farmington, NH Basement Wall
Soon after a crack had formed across one of their concrete basement walls, this Farmington, NH homeowner began to suffer from water leaking onto their basement floor. Un sure about how to resolve the problem on their own, they called us at TC Hafford Basement Systems once they saw us on their TV. We set them up with a free estimate and they were soon given their possible options by our sales representative. They quickly agreed to a solution and we got to work! When our installation crew arrived, they needed to keep water from entering this crack in the future but were slightly obstructed by supports along the wall in front of the crack. To seal the crack regardless, an initial layer of sealant was applied over the top of the visible portions of the crack, with plastic plugs placed every few feet along the sealant. After drying in place, these plugs were opened and starting from the lowest and working our way up, our crew began to inject Polyurethane into the interior of the crack through the plugs. Resealing each plug along the way, the crack is soon completely filled with the Polyurethane sealant. This will soon dry and lock out any future leakages. Now this homeowner has one less problem to worry about with their cracked basement wall sealed. The Polyurethane seal will keep water from leaking into their basement for many years to come!
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!
CleanSpace Encapsulation Protects Milton, NH Crawlspace
While living in Milton, NH, this homeowner had recently begun to notice a musty smell throughout their home. Unsure how to put an end to this problem themselves, the homeowner sought a solution online. After finding TC Hafford Basement Systems, they called us to set up their free estimate. We dispatched our sales representative and were able to go over what the problem was and what we could do to fix it with this homeowner. Water had been leaking into their crawlspace, causing the musty smell in the home. They soon gave us the go-ahead to get started on solving their problem. When our installation crew arrived at the home, they moved to the crawlspace right away to begin work on giving this home a proper vapor barrier. First, a Drainage Matting was laid across the floor of the space. This mat sits just off the surface of the floor and has many small holes throughout itself. This creates channels for the water to follow once the vapor barrier is finished, allowing the water to exit the space. Next, a CleanSpace liner was used to encapsulate the interior of the crawlspace. The CleanSpace, covering all of the walls, as well as the floor, will lock out moisture trying to enter the interior of the crawlspace in the future. This blocked water will then flow out of the space draining down back through the ground below. With their completed vapor barrier in place, this homeowner no longer needs to live with a musty smell in their home from the moisture build-up. The CleanSpace installation will keep any leaking water at bay for years to come!
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.
WaterGuard Installation Keeps Sanbornville, NH Basement Water-Free
Owning a basement that would regularly flood with rainwater wasn't something this homeowner planned for. Without a way to properly keep the water from leaking in through their foundation, this homeowner was looking for professional help when they saw TC Hafford Basement Systems on their TV. They gave us a call shorlty after to see what we could do to help their problem. They reveived their free estimate and decided to have the work done by us. As soon as our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work on waterproofing this foundation. To keep water out, WaterGuard piping was buried into the perimeter of the concrete basement floor. Once covered with a fresh layer of concrete, the WaterGuard will now take in any leaking moisture before it reaches the surface. This water is guided through the pipes to the sump where a SuperSump pump was installed. This device pumps at a rate of over 2,600 gallons of water per hour, which is plenty of power to keep this basement floor dry. The water exits the home through a PVC discharge line. Outside the home, we made two additions to this line before this job was complete. The first was an IceGuard pipe segment attached just as the line leaves the home. This piece has special holes that only allow water traveling up the pipe to escape. This will protect the basement against ice in the line that would otherwise cause a backup. Finally, the end of the discharge line was capped with a LawnScape port. This piece has a wide grate over the end to allow the water to flow while preventing most debris from entering the line. These new improvements to their basement will keep this homeowner from having to deal with flooding. The WaterGuard will remove the problem before it even reaches the surface of the floor.
Sanbornville, NH Basement Waterproofed with TripleSafe Installation
A homeowner that lived in Sanbornville, NH had been experiencing trouble with water gathering in one corner of their basement. The water would leak in during rainfall and form one large puddle. Tired of dealing with this every time it rained, the homeowner called us at TC Hafford Basement Systems after finding our website online. We set them up with a free estimate from one of our sales representatives and they gave us the green light to begin work on the basement right away. As soon as our installation crew arrived at the home, they were able to begin work on the basement. First, a spot in the low point of the floor was excavated to create room for a TripleSafe sump system to be installed. The TripleSafe system houses three pumps inside. The primary and secondary pumps function to remove the bulk of the water gathering on the floor of the basement. The secondary pump will only activate if the primary pump either fails or cannot handle the current amount of water needing to be removed. The third pump functions using a battery and will maintain a dry basement floor even during power-outages in the home. The water flowing through the TripleSafe follows a discharge line up and out of the home. On the exterior of the home, two additions were made to this discharge line before our crew was finished waterproofing this basement. The first addition was an IceGuard pipe segment attached just beyond where the line leaves the side of the home. This section of piping has special upward facing holes built in that allow any water trapped within the line to escape. Now if ice or debris blocks the line, the water will be able to exit through the IceGuard without backing up into the basement and causing more flooding. Finally, a LawnScape discharge port was used to end the line. The LawnScape terminates through a grate, allow the water to drain away through the ground a distance from the home without allowing debris such as leaves to enter the line and cause blockages. With these additions properly installed below their home, this homeowner will no longer suffer from a flooding basement during rainfall. Their new TripleSafe sump system will ensure this basement floor stays dry for the future.
