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!
Damp Crawlspace in Porter, ME Dried with SaniDry Installation
Living with a damp crawlspace beneath their home, this Porter, ME homeowner needed a way remove the moisture before it became a bigger problem. Without a way to remove the moisture, they were worried mold would spread quickly through the space. To remedy this problem, they searched online for an answer and soon discovered TC Hafford Basement Systems. When they called us to find out what we could do for them we set the homeowner up with a free estimate detailing their options. They soon hired us to install a waterproofing system as well as some additional insulation. When our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started on the crawlspace by using SprayFoam to better insulate the rim joists above the crawlspace. This will help make the heating and cooling of the home more efficient year-round. Next, a Drainage Matting was laid across the floor of the crawlspace to begin a vapor barrier installation. The Drainage Matting sits above the surface of the floor using divots along the surface of the material. This allows water trapped below the mat to flow towards the edge of the space and drain back into the ground. Next, the vapor barrier was completed using a CleanSpace liner to encapsulate the interior of the crawlspace. This covered the floor as well as the walls with a thin sheet that seals out any leaking moisture that would have previously entered the space. Finally, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifer was installed in the space. This device will take in the moisture still present in the air of the crawlspace. The air is separated from the moisture inside the SaniDry and the dry air is then circulated back into the space. Any water collected within the dehumidifier is pumped out of the home through a discharge line, where it will drain away into the ground. With these improvements made to their crawlspace, this homeowner can rest assured their crawlspace is safe from mold growth and other moisture problems in the future!

Wanting this problem resolved as soon as possible, the homeowner looked for a solution online.

To keep moisture from accumulating in the crawlspace in the future, a vapor barrier needed to be used to hold back the water. This started with a Drainage Matting being laid across the dirt floor of the crawlspace. The shape of this mat will provide channels for any moisture blocked by the barrier to follow to where it will be easiest for the water to drain away into the ground again. Next, a CleanSpace liner was used to encapsulate the crawlspace interior completely. Completing the vapor barrier, the CleanSpace will block any leaking moisture headed for the crawlspace in the future.

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.

WaterGuard Piping Saves Cornish, ME Basement from Flooding
This homeowner had been living with a problem for some time. Their basement would ragularly take on water during rainfall. Even with a concrete foundation, the water would still find a way into the basement.

We dispatched a sales representative to give the homeowner a free estimate in their Cornish, ME home. When they gave us the go-ahead to get started, our installation crew began work on this basement floor by excavating a trench into the perimeter of the concrete floor. Within this trench, WaterGuard piping was used to surround the basement floor. These pipes were then buried beneath a fresh layer of concrete to coneal them inside the floor. Small slits along the bottom of the WaterGuard will take in the leaking moisture in the future and prevent it from reaching the surface of the floor. The water follows the piping to the sump where it will be removed from the basement without causing any problems for the homeowner. Now that their basement has a waterproofing system in place, this homeowner will no longer need to put up with a flooding basement. The WaterGuard pipes will keep this basement floor dry for the forseeable future!
Spray Foam Installation Helps Cornish, ME Homeowner Better Heat Their Home
After having worked with our company before, this Cornish, ME homeowner was looking to have the crawlspace below their home better insulated and they knew exactly who to call to get the job done! We sent our sales representative to give the homeowner a free estimate and they were ready right away to have us get started as soon as we could get a crew to their home. When our installation crew made it to the home, they moved straight to the crawlspace below the home to insulate the space. In order to prevent the outside temperature from affecting the temperature inside the home, Spray Foam insulation was used to fill in gaps in the joists above the crawlspace. The Spray Foam expands once sprayed along a surface, forming a thick barrier capable of holding back the air that would typically cause the temperature transfer from below the home. Now any heating or cooling done within the home will last longer without more energy consumption with the Spray Foam barrier to maintain efficiency. Now this homeowner has the exact kind of crawlspace insulation they were looking for. This Cornish, ME home will be much better off during the peaks of winter and summer in coming years.

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.
