TC Hafford was contacted shortly after a homeshow to head out to Auburn, ME, to check out some cracking basement walls and an old sump that was ready for an upgrade. After taking a look at the site, Mike Pinard had a crew come out to install the new SuperSump sump pump in the home as well as seal up any cracks. The newly installed sump pump was connected and drained to the same sewer as the previous pump. While the customer noted their basement hadn’t yet started flooding, they were completely satisfied with the work done, and felt much more comfortable with a brand-new pump.
A homeowner in Turner was experiencing an especially troubling Spring. With their home located in a low area, and having a sand floor, the basement flooded frequently. The water would often get up to four inches deep, and this was a real problem for the homeowner. As soon as they saw an ad for TC Hafford on their television, we got the call to come help.
Due to the sand floor, we started by putting down a drainage matting, which would allow any water to flow to the sump. We then installed a SmartSump sump pump to evacuate the water from the basement. Once outside, the pipes were fitted with an IceGuard piece to allow water to continue to pump outside, even if the pipe gets blocked. Finally, we lined the basement with a CleanSpace Liner to further maintain a dry basement, and prevent moisture build up.
A homeowner in Poland had a crawlspace that was showing signs of moisture and mold. This would become a problem if left alone. After a quick internet search, Sherry had decided TC Hafford Basement Systems was the company to go with to help solve her problem. This crawlspace had no insulation, and no floor. To start, we laid down Drainage Matting to allow any water in the crawlspace to find it’s way out. Then we encapsulated the crawlspace with CleanSpace Liner. This seals out any moisture trying to enter through the surrounding earth. It also leave the crawlspace looking bright and clean. This homeowner now no longer needs to worry about any moisture in her crawlspace.
A homeowner in Sabattus was experiencing an issue where water would come up through his sump, so he plugged the hole himself. But this makeshift fix wasn’t going to work forever. He then went to the internet to find a more permanent fix. After contacting us, we arrived to give him a free estimate on what his options were for resolving his problem.
To fix his sump issue, we took out his makeshift plug, and implemented a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will take any gathered water and push it up and out of the basement. Now this homeowner has a permanent fix for his water problem.
A homeowner in Durham noticed a crack in their basement wall, this could lead to potential water leakage. Having done business with us in the past, the homeowner gave TC Hafford Basement Systems a call! We had a representative on site shortly after to give an estimate on the crack repair. Once the homeowner decided, we got to work. The crack was first filled with a sealant. This acts as the first line of defence against water trying to enter the crack, but won’t be enough for a permanent fix. We then laid down a foam matting over the top of the sealant. This foam is finally covered with a layer of sealant. This technique, called FlexiSpan, completely locks out any water trying to enter through the crack. The way the FlexiSpan is layered allows it to be flexible and conform to the crack should it shift at all. Problem solved!
A homeowner in Belgrade was having a moisture problem in their crawlspace. This was most likely caused by a lake being so close to the house. The homeowner didn’t know how to resolve this issue until seeing an ad on the television for TC Hafford Basement Systems. After contacting us and receiving a free estimate on the cost to fix the problem, the homeowner decided to get the fix!
Our crew started by laying down a drainage matting. This will allow collected water to not get locked in the crawlspace, and find its way outside again. Then the crawlspace was completely encapsulated with CleanSpace Liner. This liner covers the entire crawlspace and prevents any moisture from making its way into the crawlspace, if any manages to get in underneath. Now water is no longer something this homeowner needs to worry about!
A homeowner in Mechanic Falls had a stone basement that was gathering water. This wasn’t a problem until recently for the homeowner, and they needed it fixed. After hearing about TC Hafford from another satisfied customer, the homeowner contacted us. We had a representative take a look and go over possible solutions with the homeowner. Once they made their decision, we got to work!
The basement floor was first covered with a Drainage Matting. This matting allows for any water gathering on top of the floor to make its way back out without being locked in between the matting and the floor. Then the entire basement was lined with CleanSpace Liner. This liner acts as an impenetrable barrier, keeping any moisture coming through the walls or floor on the exterior of the basement. Now this homeowner can be proud to have a dry basement!
A homeowner in Minot was having trouble with water gathering in their basement. This could easily lead to water damage. The homeowner need this fixed as soon as possible. They contacted TC Hafford to get the job done. We had a representative head out to take a look, and discuss with the homeowner the potential solutions for this issue. The homeowner decided on what they wanted done, and we got to work!
We started by digging up the perimeter of the basement. This trench made way for us to install a WaterGuard pipe system. This is then buried under cement to hold it in place. The WaterGuard system will capture any moisture entering the basement through the walls or floors. The water is then channeled to a newly installed SuperSump sump pump. This pump will take the collected water and push it up and out of the basement. Now this homeowner no longer needs to worry about water gathering in their basement!
A homeowner in Leeds was having trouble with moist air in their basement. This was causing damp conditions and mold to grow. The homeowner wanted to have something done about this ASAP. After hearing about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a previous satisfied customer, they chose us to get the job done! After taking a look at the basement, the best solution was to install a SanyDry XP Dehumidifier. This dehumidifier will take in all the humid air, dry it out, and spread it out over the rest of the basement. Now this homeowner no longer needs to worry about a dank basement.
Derek in Lisbon Falls was in need of some basement waterproofing. He needed it because water was entering his basement through the walls and floor. To find a solution to his problem, Derek got online and soon came across TC Hafford Basement Systems. He gave us a call and we sent out a representative to give him a free estimate on the cost of the basement repairs. After he chose to get the work done, we started on the basement!
We excavated the interior perimeter of the basement and removed the debris. This gave us a trench to install a WaterGuard pipe inside of. This WaterGuard is then covered over with loose rocks and cement is poured on top to seal it underneath the basement floor. The WaterGuard will capture all the water entering the basement through the walls or floor. The water is then directed out of the basement through the sump. Now Derek has a dry basement, and no need to worry about water making its way inside.
A homeowner in Poland was experiencing issues with a flooding basement. This was making the air extremely moist, creating a perfect environment for mold growth. Needing to stop the mold before it spread, the homeowner got online and searched for an answer. This is where he found TC Hafford Basement Systems. We were just what this homeowner needed to help solve his water issue. He called us the next day and we had our representative inspect the basement to give him a free estimate of cost. The homeowner gave us the green light and we got started
First, we needed to dig up the inside perimeter of the basement floor and remove the debris. After this, we were able to lay our WaterGuard system down in this new trench, which was then covered over with loose rocks and cement to conceal it without hindering functionality. The WaterGuard pipes will catch any water trying to enter the basement through the walls or floor and direct it to the sump. Next, we installed a SmartSump sump pump in the sump of the basement, allowing the collected water to be pumped up and out through a PVC discharge line. Finally, we place a SaniDry CX dehumidifier in the basement to maintain a dry atmosphere. The SaniDry will take in the damp air, dry it out, and push it back into the basement to then dry out more air.
This homeowner now has a basement which will remain free of water and air that is dry and healthy. This eliminates any chance for mold to grow by removing the environment in which it easily spreads.
A couple in North Turner were having trouble with mold growing in their basement. There wasn’t much water build up, but enough moisture was entering the air to enable mold to grow freely throughout the basement. This was not only an issue because one of the homeowners was allergic, but the spores from the mold could lead to further health concerns for the homeowners if left unchecked. Seeking a way to put an end to this mold, the homeowners soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a realtor. They contacted us shortly after and we began work on the basement!
To maintain a dry, healthy atmosphere in the basement, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. The SaniDry takes in the surrounding air, removing all the moisture from it, and then pushes the air out into the further reaches of the basement. This pulls in more moist air, allowing the SaniDry to completely dry all of the air within the basement. Without the proper environment to live, the mold will die off, and no more mold will grow in the future. These homeowners can now live at ease, knowing mold is a problem of the past, thanks to SaniDry!
A homeowner in Lewiston with a leaky basement was in need of waterproofing. Water was coming in through the foundation during heavy rains, and there was nothing this homeowner could do to stop it. They eventually saw TC Hafford Basement Systems on the news on their television. This lead them to call us for a free estimate. The homeowner decided on what they wanted done, and we had our crew sent out to start working on the basement!
We began by digging up the interior perimeter of the basement floor, removing any debris. This created a trench surrounding the basement floor. We placed our WaterGuard system in this trench, and sealed it in place with loose rocks and cement. This hid it under the floor while still allowing full functionality. The WaterGuard will catch all the water trying to leak in through the walls or floor of the basement, keeping the interior dry no matter the amount of rain. The water is then redirected out of the basement through a discharge line. Now this homeowner has a dry basement, which will remain dry thanks to WaterGuard!
A homeowner in Lisbon was looking to have their basement finished to use as a living space. But before they could begin, they needed to do something about their water problem. Water had been leaking into the basement somehow, and gathering in puddles. Seeking a way to resolve this before moving forward, the homeowner soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a family friend. The homeowner called us right away to set up a meeting to receive a free estimate. After reviewing his options, the homeowner made his selection and we got to work!
Our crew started by digging up the inside perimeter of the basement floor. This newly created trench gave us a space to lay down our WaterGuard pipe system. It was then covered over with loose rocks and cement to conceal it without hindering functionality. The WaterGuard captures water as it enters the basement through the walls or floor. This water is then guided to the sump in the basement. Within the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will take the collected water and push it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Outside the home, attached to the discharge line, we added an IceGuard filter. This filter will allow water to continue to flow from the basement even if the lower end of the pipe is blocked by debris. Finally, to kick start the finishing of the basement, we laid down ThermalDry flooring tiles. These specially designed tiles sit on the concrete floor, and using a thick foam layer, insulate their surface from the cold temperatures of the concrete.
With these systems in place, the surface of the basement floor will remain perfectly dry. Now this homeowner can finish his basement with peace of mind, knowing no more water will enter the living space!
A homeowner in Greene was beginning to have a mold problem in their crawlspace. Moisture was finding its way into the air, which created the perfect atmosphere for mold to grow. The homeowner called TC Hafford Basement Systems right away to receive their free estimate. We then began work on the crawlspace to remove this mold issue. To do so, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This dehumidifier will, over time, take all of the moisture out of the air and maintain a dry atmosphere. This will kill off the mold, and remove any chance of more mold growing in the future.
Now, thanks to SaniDry, this homeowner can live without fear of mold growth or rotting supports.
A homeowner in South Poland had a finished basement, but a crack had formed in one of the walls. This was leaking water occasionally, and causing problems for the homeowner. Seeking a way to seal the crack, the homeowner looked through the yellow pages, soon finding TC Hafford Basement Systems. They called us to receive their free estimate, and decided to have us fix their crack. Our crew got dispatched and we got to work!
To stop the crack from leaking, we needed to seal it with FlexiSpan. To do this, we started by filling it with an initial layer of sealant. This would hold back some moisture, but wasn’t the final solution yet. Next, we covered over the sealant with a foam matting. This matting gives the FlexiSpan its flexibility. Finally, the mat is covered over with a second layer of sealant. This completes the FlexiSpan, locking out any moisture from leaking through. It will also be able to adhere to the crack, should the walls shift in any way.
Now this homeowner can use their basement now without the fear of water damage!
