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!

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.

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!

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!

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.
Faulty Sump Pump In North Berwick, ME Replaced With SuperSump
A homeowner in North Berwick was having trouble with their sump pump. Even though they had one installed a few years ago, their basement was starting to gather water again. Their pump was malfunctioning. Seeking a way to remedy this, the homeowner saw TC Hafford Basement Systems on their television and called us right away. We sent out our representative to look at the basement and give the homeowner their free estimate. They selected which options they wanted and we got to work! We began by removing the old sump pump. This was disposed of properly, and left the sump with an open slot for a new pump. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump in the sump. This sump will easily be able to handle any amount of water trying to gather in the basement, being able to pump 2,650 gallons per hour. To maintain a dry basement in any weather, we attached an UltraSump backup battery to the SuperSump. This will keep the pump operating even in such storms that the power in the home goes out. The water leaving the basement exits through a PVC discharge line. On the exterior off the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe to this discharge line. This specially designed pipe will allow water to continue to flow from the line even if the lower end of the pipe becomes blocked by any debris. These systems operating together will maintain a dry basement in any condition. The homeowner no longer needs to worry about a failing sump pump.
