Basement In Parsonsfield, ME Waterproofed With WaterGuard
A homeowner in Parsonsfield was in need of some waterproofing in their basement. Their son had mentioned TC Hafford Basement Systems to them, and they contacted us to get the job done. After being contacted by the homeowner, we got to work! We started by excavating the interior perimeter of the basement. This makes room for our WaterGuard system to be installed. This is a system of pipes used to collect water as it enters the basement through either the walls or floor. Then we added a TrenchDrain piece underneath a door leading out of the basement on the back of the house. This drain will collect any and all water trying to enter underneath the door. These pipes are connected to the existing sump system to remove the water from the basement. Now this homeowner no longer needs to worry about water in their basement.
Damp Basement In Parsonsfield, ME Kept Dry With SuperSump
Dave from Parsonsfield was having trouble with his sump. Water wasn’t draining properly through his sump, and it was pooling up in his basement. Worried about water damage, Dave searched online for a solution. He soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems, and after a little research, Dave knew we were the perfect company to help solve his troubles. He called us shortly after and we had a representative over at the home to give Dave his free estimate. He chose what work he wanted done and we got to work! We began by digging out more of the sump to make room for a pump to be put in. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump in the old sump. This will take the water entering the sump and force it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Attached to this pump, we added an UltraSump backup battery to keep the SuperSump working even if the home loses power. On the outside of the home, we connected an IceGuard pipe to the discharge line. This special piece of pipe will allow water to continue to leave the basement even if the lower end of the pipe becomes blocked in any way. Finally, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier in the basement. This dehumidifier will take in the air immediately surrounding it and dry out any moisture. It then pushes the air out into the basement, forcing more moist air back towards the SaniDry. This cycle continues until the basement air is completely dry. Now Dave has a dry basement floor and healthy air circulating his basement. Water damage is a worry of the past!
Leaking Basement In Porter, ME Sealed With WaterGuard
A couple in Porter was having trouble with a leaky basement. Water would easily enter the basement through the wall/floor joint during heavy rains, and pool up on the floor. This flooding needed to be stopped, and seeking professional help the homeowners called TC Hafford Basement Systems after seeing us on their television. We had a representative at the home soon after to inspect the basement and give a free estimate. After the homeowner gave us the green light, we got to work! We began working on the basement by excavating the perimeter of the floor. This new trench allowed us to lay our WaterGuard piping system down. The WaterGuard is designed in such a way that it will capture the water as it leaks through the cement toward the interior of the basement. The captured water is directed to the sump, where we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This pump will guarantee the water fed to it will be pumped out of the basement, being equipped with a battery-powered backup pump. The water being evacuated exits through a PVC discharge line. On the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe piece to this discharge line to maintain water flow. The IceGuard will allow any water in the pipe to exit the pipe, should the lower end of the pipe become blocked by ice or other debris. These three systems working together will guarantee a dry basement for these homeowners for many years to come!
Crawlspace In Cornish, ME Kept Dry Using CleanSpace Liner
Molly in Cornish was experiencing trouble with her crawlspace. It would collect puddles of water whenever it would rain. This needed to be addressed as soon as possible. Soon after seeing an ad on television, Molly gave TC Hafford a call. We had a crew out in no time to get to work! The interior perimeter of the crawlspace was covered with a Drainage Matting to prevent the water from making its way toward the center of the crawlspace. We then lined the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This is a clean sheet of plastic that encapsulates the entire crawlspace, save for the ceiling. This will lock out any and all water trying to enter the crawlspace. Though moisture still might be able to sneak into the crawlspace through other means. This is why we installed a SaniDry CX Dehumidifier. This dehumidifier will maintain a dry atmosphere within the crawlspace. Preventing any mold growth or structural damage to the house.
Leaking Basement In Bar Millls, ME Kept Dry With TripleSafe
A homeowner in Bar Mills had a basement that would always gather a pool of water during heavy rains. Fearing the problem worsening over time, the homeowner wanted to stop this before it could get any worse. After a quick internet search, they found TC Hafford Basement Systems. They called us up and we had our representative inspect the basement to give them their free estimate. After they selected what work they wanted done, we got to work! To take in the water leaking into the basemen, we dug out a sump in the floor of the basement. Within this sump, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This product is composed of three separate pumps. The primary and secondary handle the bulk of the water, the secondary only turning on when the primary fails for any reason. The third pump is a battery backup pump, activating when the power in the home goes out. We then installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier to remove the moisture from the air within the space. This homeowner now no longer needs to worry about water pooling up on his basement floor. Even without power, his new sump pump will continue to evacuate water.
Ocean Park, ME Crawlspace Sealed Off From Moisture With CleanSpace
Tony from Ocean Park was in the market for getting his crawlspace vapor barrier redone. It wasn’t done properly the first time, and was allowing moisture to accumulate within the crawlspace. Tony got online to find his answer, and he found it with TC Hafford Basement Systems. He contacted us and we had a representative out at the home in no time to give Tony his free estimate. He selected what work he wanted done and we got started! First, we laid a Drainage Matting around the interior perimeter of the crawlspace. This will hold back most of the moisture entering the crawlspace and give it time to drain out through the floor. On top of the Drainage Matting, we covered the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner will ensure nearly all of the moisture coming in through the walls or floor are kept locked underneath it, not allowing for water to gather within the crawlspace. Finally, to guarantee a dry atmosphere within the crawlspace, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This will cycle the moist air until all that is left is dry, healthy air. Now Tony has a functioning vapor barrier and a dry crawlspace, thanks to CleanSpace!

He soon got online and found TC Hafford Basement Systems, who he called right then. We had a representative out at the home in no time to give a free estimate. Nathan chose what work he wanted done and we got started! We began by lining the interior perimeter of the crawlspace with a Drainage Matting.

This liner locks out all moisture on the exterior of the crawlspace. Now Nathan has a proper moisture barrier to keep his crawlspace dry even in the heaviest of rain!
WaterGuard Protects Steep Falls, ME Basement From Water Damage
A homeowner in Steep Falls was having trouble with water leaking into her basement through the walls and floor. Fearing water damage, the homeowner searched for a way to prevent more water from entering her basement. She soon called TC Hafford Basement Systems to arrange a meeting with one of our representative and receive their free estimate. The homeowner gave us the green light and we got to work! To begin our work, we dug a trench around the inside perimeter of the basement floor and removed the debris. This new trench allowed us to lay down our WaterGuard pipe system encircling the basement. This system will catch all the water trying to enter the basement through the walls and floor and guide it to the sump. The WaterGuard was then buried under loose rocks and cement to hide it without hindering its capabilities. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump in the basement, which would pump the collected water up and out through a PVC discharge line. On the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard filter to the discharge line. This special pipe will allow water to exit the line should the lower end of the pipe become blocked by ice or other debris. Finally, we emplaced a SaniDry XP dehumidifier in the basement. This will take in the moist air, and output dry, healthy air. With these systems working together, water damage will no longer be a concern for this homeowner!
Fryeburg, ME Crawlspace Protected From Moisture With CleanSpace
A couple in Fryeburg was having trouble with water gathering in their crawlspace. Whenever rain would fall, the dirt walls and floor didn’t stop the water from leaking in. Seeking a solution, the homeowners soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems. After they gave us a call, we dispatched our representative to inspect the space and give a free estimate to the homeowners. They made their choice and we got to work! We began by installing a SmartDrain in the floor of the crawlspace. This will take the water gathering in the lowest point and allow it to drain out and away from the crawlspace. Next, we encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This covers every wall in the crawlspace, and the floor. Being made of a thin plastic, it will lock out moisture and prevent it from reaching the interior of the space. Finally, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This will take any moisture managing to enter the atmosphere within the crawlspace and remove it. With these systems working together, this couple no longer needs to struggle with a flooding crawlspace.
WaterGuard Prevents Moisture From Leaking Into Center Lovell, ME Basement
A homeowner in Center Lovell bought a home, but this home had a problem in the basement. It would gather a large amount of moisture whenever it would rain, which was leaving behind an unpleasant, musty smell. Looking to finish the basement and turn it into a livable space, the homeowner needed to waterproof the space. He searched online and found his solution, TC Hafford Basement Systems. He called us up and we were on the job! We began by digging out the inside perimeter of the basement floor. This new trench surrounding the basement is where we laid down our WaterGuard piping system. This system is buried beneath cement, and will capture water before it reaches the surface. The captured water is carried through the pipes to the sump, where we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will handle pushing the water up and out of the basement, never allowing it to reach the surface of the floor. Finally, to allow the homeowner to finish the space without needed to address the cold cement floor, we laid down our ThermalDry flooring tiles. These tiles are made of a hard plastic, being able to act as a floor, while also being insulated with foam on the bottoms to prevent the cold from reaching the surface. With this newly waterproofed basement, the homeowner can now easily waterproof the space without fear of water damage or mold growth!
