Crawlspace In Raymond, ME Sealed With CleanSpace
Tom from Raymond was in the market for a vapor barrier for his crawlspace. He had been experiencing flooding in the space, and needed it to stop before any permanent damage happened. Tom soon saw TC Hafford Basement Systems on his television, and gave us a call. We had a representative at his home in no time to inspect the crawlspace and give Tom a free estimate. He selected the solution he wanted and we sent in our crew. In order to form a proper vapor barrier in the crawlspace, we needed to line the walls with sheets that wouldn’t allow for the passage of water. We began by laying a Drainage Matting around the perimeter of the crawlspace, at the wall/floor joint. This will hold back a good amount of water, giving it time to drain back into the soil before reaching the center of the space. We then encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This is a plastic sheet that will lock out any moisture attempting to find its way into the crawlspace. These two layers working together will keep out moisture and maintain a dry crawlspace for Tom.
Sump Pump Pit In Harrison, ME, Needs New Pump
A homeowner in Harrison was having trouble with their current sump pump. They had contacted TC Hafford at a previous residence for basement work; and now gave us another call to get this new basement done! His current sump pump wasn’t pumping water like it used to. Water was starting to collect in and around the sump for extended periods of time. We had a representative head out to take a look and offer potential solutions. Once the homeowner decided on what they wanted done, we got to work! We started the job by removing the old pump. It wasn’t going to be doing the homeowner any good anymore. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump into the old sump. This new sump should do the trick when it comes to pushing out the water that gathers in the sump. Finally, on the outside of the house, we attached an IceGuard filter to the PVC discharge line. This will ensure water continues to drain should the lower end of the pipe become blocked by ice or debris. Now this homeowner is worry free with a dry basement!
Leaking Crack In Stoneham, ME Sealed With FlexiSpan
A homeowner in Stoneham had a wet basement, thanks to a large crack forming on one of their walls. This could lead to water damage to the homeowner’s property, and they needed a way to prevent it. Searching online for a solution, they soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems. We arranged to inspect the crack, and we gave the homeowner a free estimate. They gave us the green light and we got started! We began by filling the crack with a layer of sealant. This layer was then covered over with a foam matting. This foam matting gives the finished structure flexibility. These two layers acts as an initial barrier which holds back some of the moisture, but it is not quite complete yet. We finished the project off with a final layer of sealant over the foam. This creates what is known as FlexiSpan. A crack sealing structure that is capable of bending and conforming to the crack in the event of shifting basement walls. With the FlexiSpan in place, this homeowner will no longer experience a leaking basement due to this crack!
