Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

We prevent mold, musty smells & rot from developing in your basement or crawl space. What many contractors will want to do is dig up the foundation & seal the outside wall. The problem is this is very expensive and requires ripping up gardens, lawns, and patios in order to do it. Because of these obvious problems we install interior drainage systems

We Provide:
  • Basement Waterproofing
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • High Quality Sump Pumps
  • Energy-Efficient Dehumidifier             
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement or Crawl Space
  • Warrantied Solutions
  • Greater Home Value
  • Peace of Mind

The interior drainage system collects any water that manages to enter the home. The water travels to the sump pump where it is pumped safely out and away from the foundation. Add a high-efficiency dehumidifier and mold growth is prevented.

We build our basement waterproofing & crawl space encapsulation system with exclusive patented products and provide written warranties.

Foundation Repair & PolyLEVEL Concrete Leveling

Give us a call so one of our trusted engineers can visit your home for a free inspection. When it is time for repair we install foundation products that have a written warranty. The products are designed to be non-invasive and can be installed without ruining your lawn. 

Foundation Solutions for:
  • Bowing Walls
  • Uneven Floors
  • Wall Cracks
  • Settling Foundation            
Concrete Solutions for:
  • Sinking Concrete
  • Sunken Driveway
  • Unlevel Interior Concrete Slab
  • Poor Mudjacking Work
  • Washed Out Soil

To fix sunken concrete slabs we use PolyLEVEL, a polyurethane foam. Small holes are drilled in the slab and the PolyLEVEL is pumped beneath the concrete. The foam quickly expands and lifts the slab back to a level position. PolyLEVEL while strong is also much lighter than the mudslurry which is traditionally used in mudjacking.

Job Stories From Carmel, ME
TripleSafe Installation Keeps Carmel, ME Basement Water-Free

Without a proper pump in the floor of their basement, this homeowner living in Carmel, ME had been experiencing flooding. They would regularly need to manually remove water from their basement during the flooding to keep the water damage to a minimum. Looking to find a quick solution to their problem, the homeowner searched online and soon discovered us at TC Hafford Basement Systems. They called us right away to set up their free estimate and spoke with our sales representative soon after. Knowing we could solve their problem, the homeowner hired us to get the job done!

When our installation crew arrived at the home, they got to work on the sump right away. To eliminate the build up of water on the basement floor, a TripleSafe sump system was installed in the existing sump. The TripleSafe system houses three pumps, each operating to keep the basement water-free. The first and secondary pumps both handle the bulk of the water, but the secondary pump will remain inactive unless the primary becomes overwhelmed or fails for any reason. The third pump is a battery-operated backup pump. This will ensure the basement is safe, even during storms that knock out the power. All of the collected water is forced up and out of the home through a PVC discharge line.

Outside the home, our installation crew made two additions to the discharge line. The first of these additions was an IceGuard segment attached just beyond where the line left the home. This piece has special holes built into the sides of itself that allow for only trapped water to escape the line. This will protect the basement from ice or other debris blocking the line and causing a backup flood. Finally, a LawnScape discharge port was used to end the line. This piece covers the line with a grate, keeping out any solid debris that would otherwise cause blockages. Water flows from the end of the line here through the grate and drains into the ground harmlessly.

With their newly installed sump pump, this homeowner can now experience a dry basement! The TripleSafe system will keep this basement dry for years down the road.

Carmel, ME Basment Kept Dry with FlexiSpan Installation

A homeowner that lived in Carmel, ME had recently noticed their basement was taking on water during rainfall. This was a problem because the water could damage items this homeowner had in their basement. The cause of the water leakages was a crack that had opened up along one of their concrete walls. Looking for a way to solve this problem, the homeowner searched online and soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems. They called us right away to have their free estimate done. Once they heard their options, they gave us the go-ahead to get the job done!


When our installaton crew arrived at the property, they began work on the crack right away by brushing away any debris with a coarse brush. This would allow the seal to set more firmly to the wall. An initial layer of sealant was applied inside the crack, beginning the installation of a FlexiSpan seal. Next, a foam mat was placed over the sealant, along the length of the crack. Finally, this foam was covered over by a second layer of sealant. This completes the FlexiSpan seal covering the crack, which will now lock out any future leaks. The FlexiSpan, as the name suggests, is flexible enough to shift with small changes in the shape of the crack to maintain a water-tight seal on the crack.


This new FlexiSpan seal will ensure this basement no longer takes on any rainwater leaks through this crack. Now this homeowner can use their basement for storage without fearing water damage.

Wet Basement In Carmel, ME Kept Dry With WaterGuard

The Carmel Church had been having trouble with their basement. Water had been building up and causing a smell to emanate throughout the building. The owner of the church soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems by seeing us on TV, and gave us a call. We had a representative investigate the basement to give a free estimate of cost to the church. They gave us the go ahead and we got to work!

We got started by excavating the interior perimeter of the basement. This new trench was filled with our WaterGuard pipe system. These pipes will capture water as it tries to enter through the walls or floor, and guide it to the sump. The WaterGuard is covered over with loose rocks and cement to hide it beneath the floor without hindering functionality. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump in the sump to evacuated the water. The water exits through a PVC discharge line.

These two systems working in tandem will maintain a dry basement for the church for many years in the future.

Water is seeping into our basement. It disappears on its own usually after a day or so. We have been in this house for 36 years and this is the first time in over 30 I recall having this issue. We would like someone to look at the situation and discuss options. At this time of year, I'm not sure what can be done or determined, but would like to stay ahead of the issue. If you call and I am not able to answer the phone, please leave a message.

Basement now relatively dry but needs work, Had a swell built 2019 were told that was the first step, need to know what is next.
Project Location: Carmel, ME
I have water coming into my basement from outside when it rains heavily. It was originally coming in around bulkhead area / back wall and now today has started coming in the opposite side of the basement. Not standing water, but enough to come in one side and run all the way to the other, enough to be a problem and I do not want it to continue getting worse to the point where the basement is full of water. I believe it is coming in where the concrete walls meet the basement floor, coming down through the ground and in between the concrete. I tired to help divert the water from above ground by adding a lot of dirt around bulk head / exterior back wall, slanting out away from the house, which seems to help with small storms but heavy rain still seems to find its way in. I figured it was definitely time to reach out and get a professional opinion. Email works best throughout the day, feel free to call and leave a message, I will get back to you ASAP. Thank You!

Foundation problem - Installed new door and water flows in during rain storm. Weatherizing basement as well.
Project Location: Carmel, ME
I have a field stone foundation, at some point in time a cement floor was installed. The issue is that with the cement floor, water comes in but doesn't really have a way to get out. Additionally, it appears that there may have been a bulk head at one point in time, which has since been cinder block and mortared in, biggest leak is near the bottom, but not completely at the bottom of this "fix".
