Job Stories From Cumberland County, ME
Crawlspace in Bridgton, ME, is Fixed Fast

This musty crawlspace in Bridgton, ME, was collecting more water than the homeowner cared for, and needed some improvements. After seeing TC Hafford Basement Systems on TV, the homeowner gave us a call and set up a meeting. Once Peter Folsom understood the situation and what the homeowner wanted done, the crew came in and got the job done in the same day they started. For this crawlspace, to keep water to a minimum, the ground was lined with a Drainage Matting, which was then covered over by a CleanSpace Liner. This allowed the water to drain out of the crawl space, while keeping the moisture and bacteria locked out of the crawlspace. This was a quick job that left out client happy.

Crack in Harpswell, ME Basement Wall is Fixed

A homeowner in Harpswell had a crack in their basement that was on the side of their home with a deck attached. This meant the issue had to be fixed from the inside; which is where TC Hafford Basement System came in. After an internet search, the homeowner found our site and contacted us to come out and get the job done. The problem was quickly resolved using FlexiSpan to cover the crack in the wall and keep it sealed for the future. This interior fix allowed for the deck to remain unharmed on the outside, while keeping water out of the basement, leaving the customer satisfied.

Cracked Wall in Gray, ME Basement Sealed with Urethane

Carl from Gray, Maine, was having water enter his basement through a large crack in one of the walls. This was an issue for Carl, because not only did this cause damp conditions and humid air; but it also would allow the basement to flood during heavy rains. Carl quickly reached out to TC Hafford Basement Systems once he heard about us through a friend.

After Carl spoke with Mike Morin, TC Hafford was soon on the scene. Our workers quickly filled the crack with a 7.5' urethane injection. This injection sealed the crack, no longer allowing any water to slip through from the outside. Leaving Carl happy, and his basement dry.

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!

Crawlspace In Sebago, ME Sealed Properly Using CleanSpace Liner

A homeowner in Sebago was noticing puddles of water starting to gather in his crawlspace. This was an immediate problem, but he was unsure how to go about fixing it. He soon saw an ad on his television for TC Hafford Basement Systems and gave us a call. We had a representative out to his home in no time to see what could be done.

The first thing our crew got to work on was installing a Drainage Matting around the crawlspace. This will allow any water coming in to slide underneath itself, rather than out into the crawlspace. Then the crawlspace was completely covered with a CleanSpace Liner. This locks out any water between itself and the walls/floor. Not allowing any to pass through into the interior of the crawlspace. Finally, we installed a SaniDry CX Dehumidifier, to dry out any moisture in the air. This final step is important because moist air can lead to mold growth. Not only can mold cause a nasty smell, but it can cause health problems as well. Now this homeowner is worry free!

Crawl Space Mold Problem solved in Pownal, ME

Bill from Pownal had a mold problem in his crawlspace. This problem needed to be solved, because mold is a very big health risk. After a quick google search, Bill found TC Hafford, and chose to go with us. After checking out the crawlspace, we got to work! We started by laying down a Drainage Matting. This matting will keep water from entering the interior of the basement, even if it seeps in through the walls or floor. We then encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner completely locks out moisture. Maintaining a dry atmosphere within the crawlspace for the future. Now Bill is worry free.

Crawlspace In Peaks Island, ME Waterproofed With CleanSpace

A homeowner in Peaks Island had a crawlspace that would gather water whenever it would rain. The homeowner needed to fix this leakage before it caused any damage. They logged online and searched for a solution. This is where they came across TC Hafford Basement Systems. Soon after they contacted us, we had a representative out at the home to inspect the crawlspace and give a free estimate about what work we could do to stop the leaking. Once the homeowner gave us the go ahead, we got to work!

Our crew began by laying down a drainage matting to prevent moisture, entering from the perimeter, from making its way into the center of the crawlspace. Next, we encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner locks the moisture outside the crawlspace; not allowing passage from the exterior to the interior, like cement does. The SmartSump sump pump was the next item installed. With an UltraSump backup battery, this SmartSump will pump any collected moisture up and out of the crawlspace, keeping it off the floors. Finally, we placed a SaniDry CX inside the crawlspace to dehumidify any remaining moisture lingering in the air. Completely drying out this homeowner’s crawlspace, and maintaining the dry atmosphere for the future!

New Gloucester, ME Crawlspace Protected From Moisture

Rachel in New Gloucester had a crawlspace that was in dire need of waterproofing. The crawlspace would collect water every time it would rain. This water was creating an excellent environment for mold to grow within. Rachel needed to stop this from happening, and she found the perfect solution on her television; when she saw an ad for TC Hafford Basement Systems. She contacted us soon after and received a free estimate on what we could do to help solve her problem.

We started work on the crawlspace by wrapping a Drainage Matting around the interior perimeter of the crawlspace. This matting will prevent the watering entering through the wall or in through the joint between the wall and the floor. Keeping it out until it is able to drain back out of the crawlspace. Next, we covered the floors and walls with a CleanSpace Liner. This completely locks out any moisture trying to enter, maintaining a dry atmosphere within the crawlspace. Now mold growth is no longer a concern for this homeowner!

Damp Basement In Orrs Island, ME Protected By WaterGuard

A couple of homeowners in Orrs Island were having water enter their basement though one of the corners. Normally, water wouldn’t be an issue for their basement, because they had a sump system in place to pump out any water. However, this water was collecting in puddles before reaching the sump, thus not allowing for it to be pumped out. This would leave the basement damp and smelly for days after it rained. Needing a solution, they got online and found TC Hafford Basement Systems. They contacted us soon after and we had a representative sent out to give a free estimate on the cost to fix the problem. The homeowners gave the go ahead and we got to work!

To start, we dug a trench around the inside perimeter of the basement floor. This allowed us to place a WaterGuard pipe system, which was then covered in loose rocks and cemented in place. The WaterGuard system will capture water as it seeps into the basement through the floor or walls. The water is then guided to the sump within the basement for removal. Underneath a door in the basement which lead outside, we used a TrenchDrain section of pipe. This connects to the WaterGuard and any water trying to slip in under the door is caught here and follows the WaterGuard like the rest of the water. Now with their new WaterGuard system in place, this couple no longer has a damp basement after rain!

Wet Basement In Cumberland Foreside, ME Waterproofed With WaterGuard

A homeowner in Cumberland Foreside was having trouble with moisture gathering in their basement. The moisture would come in through the walls and floor, then gather into puddles around the basement. Needing this to come to an end, the homeowner got online and found a solution; TC Hafford Basement Systems. After being contacted, we gave the homeowner a free estimate and started work on the basement!

We first excavated the inside perimeter of the basement floor. The resulting trench us space to lay down a WaterGuard pipe system. This system is then buried under loose rocks and cement, to hide it within the floor while still allowing it to function properly. The WaterGuard will capture water as it enters the basement through the floor or walls, and guide it to the sump. In the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump. The SuperSump will take the collected water and push it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. On the outside of the home, we attached an IceGuard piece to the PVC discharge line. This IceGuard is designed to prevent a back-up in the sump by allowing water to continue to flow even if the lower end of the discharge line becomes blocked for any reason. This homeowner now no longer has any puddles gathering in his basement, thanks to the WaterGuard.

Nathan in West Baldwin was in the market for a vapor barrier for his crawlspace. Moisture would find its way in during rain, and this was causing problems in the home.

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 mat will hold out any moisture trying to find its way into the crawlspace, and allow it time to drain.

After we got the call, we dispatched a representative to inspect the crawlspace and determine the best potential fixes to stop the water leakage; giving Joe a free estimate on how much the repairs would cost. He decided on which fix he wanted and our crew got to work!

We began by laying a Drainage Matting around the interior perimeter of the wall/floor joint. This mat will hold back moisture coming in through the joint, allowing it time to drain back out through the floor. We then encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner.

Before they could move forward with finishing their basement, they needed to waterproof their basement. They soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a satisfied previous customer and they contacted us right away. We had a representative give the homeowner a free estimate and got to work on the basement! We dug out a hole in the basement floor to create a sump. This is where the water will naturally gather. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will take the gathered water and force it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Now this homeowner can finally finish their basement now that it has been waterproofed.

Damp Crawlspace In Casco, ME Protected By CleanSpace

Pam from Casco was having trouble with her old vapor barrier in her crawlspace. Water was pooling up in the crawlspace during rain, meaning that somehow, her vapor barrier was letting water through. Looking to have this addressed, Pam called TC Hafford Basement Systems after she saw us on the news. We had a representative inspect the crawlspace and give her a free estimate on the cost of a new vapor barrier. She gave us the go ahead and we got to work!

We began by lining the wall/floor joint with a Drainage Matting. This would allow any moisture that manages to enter time to drain back through the way it came in. Without allowing it to pool up further towards the center of the crawlspace. We then encapsulated the entire crawlspace with a CleanSpae Liner, except for the ceiling. This plastic sheet of CleanSpace will hold back any moisture from the outside. Not allowing water to gather within the crawlspace itself. Finally, to keep the air quality dry, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This will take in the moist air from around the crawlspace, and dry it out. Maintaining a dry, healthy atmosphere within the crawlspace.

Now Pam has a dry crawlspace and a fully functioning vapor barrier. Water should no longer be an issue for this Casco crawlspace!

Wet Crawlspace In South Freeport, ME Kept Dry With CleanSpace

A couple in South Freeport were experiencing problems with their crawlspace. Water was finding its way inside during rain, and causing moisture to build up in the air and on the floor. This was a perfect habitat for mold to grow, and the homeowner wanted to change this before they developed a serious mold problem. They soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems and gave us a call. We had a representative inspect the crawlspace and then we got to work!

We needed to stop the water from entering the crawlspace. To do this, we encapsulated the walls and floor with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner will seal off the crawlspace from exterior moisture, not allowing any to pass through into the interior of the crawlspace. We then installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. This machine will cycle through the air in the crawlspace, drying out any moisture gathering in the air. This dry air completely removes the environment in which mold grows, killing off any mold starting to grow in the crawlspace. Now this couple is worry free, with a mold-free crawlspace that will remain dry no matter how hard it rains!

Leaking Basement In Windham, ME Waterproofed With WaterGuard

A homeowner in Windham had a basement that would flood during heavy rains. The homeowner was unsure how the water was getting in, but they needed something done to stop it. After receiving a piece of mail from TC Hafford Basement Systems, the homeowner knew we would be the perfect company for the job. They called us shortly after to set up a meeting to get their free estimate. After that, the homeowner gave us the go ahead and we got to work!

To begin with the waterproofing of the basement, we needed to excavate the inside perimeter of the floor. We dug out a trench, and removed all of the debris from the basement. This allowed us to lay down our WaterGuard piping system. The WaterGuard is then covered over with loose rocks and cement to conceal it within the floor without hindering functionality. The specially designed pipes will capture water as it attempts to enter the basement through the walls or floor. The water is then guided out through a discharge line. This homeowner now no longer needs to worry about water flooding their basement, thanks to WaterGuard.

SaniDry Protects Portland, ME Basement From Mold Growth

Nancy from Portland had started to notice a musty smell emitting from her basement. This was being caused by very moist air. The smell could also be an indication of mold growth in the basement. Seeking professional assistance with this moisture problem, Nancy contacted TC Hafford Basement Systems. We had a representative at the home shortly after to give the homeowner her free estimate. She selected what she wanted done, and our crew started working.

To remove the moisture from the basement air, and keep the air dry, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. This dehumidifier takes in the moist air immediately surrounding itself, dries it out, and then pushes it out into the basement. The pressure created by this pulls in more moist air, allowing the process to continue until all of the air within the basement is dry and healthy. This will not only kill off any mold starting to grow, but it will prevent it from spreading, or re-growing in the future. Now Nancy has clean, dry air in her basement, and no need to worry about a musty smell, or mold growth!

WaterGuard Seals Off Brunswick, ME Basement From External Water

A couple in Brunswick was experiencing issues with water coming in through the walls of their basement. They had no way of efficiently removing this water from their basement, and were seeking professional help. They soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a previously satisfied customer, and called us right away! We had a representative inspect the basement, giving them their free estimate, and then we got to work on the basement!

We began by digging a trench around the inside perimeter of the basement floor. This allowed us to lay down our WaterGuard system, which was then covered over with loose rocks and cement. This hides the WaterGuard without hindering functionality. This special pipe system captures the water as it enters the basement, carrying it to the sump we dug in the basement. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump, which will take the collected water from the WaterGuard and push it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Finally, we attached an UltraSump backup battery to the SuperSump. This will keep the SuperSump powered, even if the power in the home is out, due to inclement weather, or any other reason. Now this couple has a dry basement, which will keep itself dry in any weather!

Malfunctioning Sump Pump In Scarborough, ME Replaced With TripleSafe

A homeowner in Scarborough had a sump pump in their basement, but water was somehow still collecting in pools on the floor. The pump wasn’t doing what it was put there to do. Needing a way to remedy this issue, the homeowner searched online for a solution. This is where they found TC Hafford Basement Systems. They gave us a call and we had a representative head to the home to take a look at the sump, and give the homeowner a free estimate. They decided on what options they wanted, and we got to work!

To begin, we needed to remove the old pump. It could be thrown out, as it was no longer serving any purpose. After throwing away the pump, we were able to install our TripleSafe sump pump into the old sump. The TripleSafe is unique in that is consists of three separate pumps, to keep the basement dry under any condition. The first pump is the primary pump, which handle the bulk of the water. The secondary pump is there in case the primary malfunctions in any way, to prevent the sump from overflowing. Finally, the third pump is a battery-operated pump. It’s in place for when the power goes out in the home, and water still needs to be evacuated from the basement. This sump pump will guarantee a dry basement for this homeowner, under any conditions!

Moist Crawlspace In Westbrook, ME Protected By CleanSpace

A homeowner in Westbrook began noticing a musty smell emanating from their crawlspace. This smell was due to moist conditions, and was likely be a formation of mold inside the crawlspace. The smell might have been the least of the homeowner’s concerns if it was indeed mold growing in their crawlspace. The mold can release spores into the air, which if inhaled by the homeowner, could lead to health concerns. Needing a way to deal with their moisture issue, the homeowner called TC Hafford Basement Systems after seeing us on their TV. We had a representative at the home in no time to give the homeowner their free estimate. Luckily, there was very little mold in the crawlspace, and drastic measures weren’t required. We got the go ahead from the homeowner and began work!

With the little amount of mold present in the crawlspace, we needed to stop the moisture if we wanted to prevent the mold from spreading. To do this, we encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner holds back moisture trying to enter the interior of the crawlspace through the walls or floor. Keeping the moisture out this way will keep the air and surfaces within the crawlspace dry. Without moisture in the air, the mold is unable to survive. Needing certain conditions to live in, the mold will eventually die off, and not grow back. Now this homeowner has no mold problem, and a dry crawlspace, thanks to CleanSpace!

Wet Crawlspace In Goram, ME Kept Dry Using CleanSpace

A couple in Gorham was looking experiencing moisture gathering in their crawlspace. They needed a proper vapor barrier to help keep out this water. Looking for the right company for the job, they came across TC Hafford Basement Systems one day while watching television. They called us soon after to set up a meeting with one of our representatives. We gave them their free estimate, and they chose to go ahead and have us install a proper vapor barrier for them. We sent in our crew and got to work!

We began installing the vapor barrier by laying down a Drainage Matting. This mat lays against the wall/floor joint around the inside perimeter of the crawlspace. This is where most of the water coming in will coalesce and the mat allows this water time to drain, without it reaching the interior of the crawlspace. Next, we encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This is a thin plastic sheet that covers everything except for the ceiling of the crawlspace. This will lock out any moisture trying too finds its way into the interior of the crawlspace. Whether it’s trying to pool up on the floor or make its way into the air, no water is going to be entering the crawlspace from the outside anymore. Now this couple has a proper vapor barrier, thanks to CleanSpace.

Malfunctioning Sump Pump In Falmouth, ME Replaced With TripleSafe

A homeowner in Falmouth was having trouble with their sump pump. It was allowing water to gather within the basement. The water would enter the sump normally, but then the sump would back-up and allow the water to overflow, back out into the basement. This was an issue they needed professional help with, so after consulting the Yellow Pages, they called TC Hafford Basement Systems. We got them their free estimate, and then we got to work!

We began by removing the old pump from the basement. It could be thrown away, as it served no further purpose. We then installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This device contains three separate pumps. The first, primary pump is for the majority of the water. The secondary pump is there in case the primary fails for any reason and stops working. Finally, the third pump is a battery backup and will operate when the power in the home is out. Now this new pump will keep the homeowner’s basement dry is all weather conditions.

Basement In Standish, ME Kept Dry With TripleSafe Sump Pump

Dave from Standish was having trouble with his sump pump within his basement. It was malfunctioning and water was pooling up on his basement floor. Seeking professional help, Dave searched online for a solution. His search soon lead him to TC Hafford Basement Systems, who after a little research, he knew was the right company for the job. Dave gave us a call, and we had a representative head to the property to give him a free estimate. He selected what work he wanted done and we got to work!

We began by removing the old sump pump. It was faulty and would no longer serve a purpose in the basement. We then installed our TripleSafe sump pump into the sump. The TripleSafe is composed of three separate pumps. The primary pump handles the bulk of the water. The secondary pump will turn on in the event of the primary pump failing. The third pump is a battery-backup pump which operates when the power in the home cannot keep the primary or secondary running. The pump uses a PVC discharge line to evacuate the water. Which, on the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe piece to. The IceGuard is designed to allow water to exit the pipe should the lower end become blocked by any kind of debris.

The combination of TripleSafe sump pump and IceGuard filter is sure to keep this basement dry. Dave should have no more worries about a malfunctioning sump pump in the future!

Leaking Basement In Cape Elizabeth, ME Protected by WaterGuard

A homeowner in Cape Elizabeth was in the market for basement waterproofing. They’d been dealing with water flooding their basement for too long, and needed something done about it. Looking for a professional consultation, the homeowner soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a family friend. They were in contact with us right away, and we had a representative inspect the basement to give the homeowner a free estimate. They then gave us the green light and we began work!

Our crew started by excavating the interior perimeter of the basement floor. This created a trench for us to emplace our WaterGuard pipe system, which was then covered over with loose rocks and cement. This hides the WaterGuard within the floor, while still allowing for it to function properly. This pipe system will catch water as it tries to leak into the basement, guiding it to the sump within the basement. In the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will take the water gathered within it and push it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line.

These two products working in tandem will maintain a dry basement floor. This homeowner now no longer needs to worry about heavy rains flooding his basement!

WaterGuard Protects Yarmouth, ME Basement From Flooding

Sharon from Yarmouth was looking for ways to seal off her basement from moisture. Water would easily enter her basement during rain due to something known as hydrostatic pressure. This is when the water in the surrounding soil is forced into the basement through the concrete. Sharon soon received a letter in the mail advertising TC Hafford Basement Systems. We were just the company she was looking for! She called us right away and set up a meeting with one of our representatives to receive her free estimate. After making her selection of products, our crew got to work.

We began by digging up the inside perimeter of the basement floor. This new trench allowed us to lay our WaterGuard pipe system down. It was then covered over with loose rocks and cement to conceal it within the floor without preventing functionality. The WaterGuard system will capture water as it enters the basement through the walls or floor. The water is then guided to the sump in the basement. In the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This sump will push the water up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. With these systems in place, water is no longer a concern for Sharon.

Flooding Crawlspace In Freeport, ME Properly Waterproofed With CleanSpace

A homeowner in Freeport was in the market for a vapor barrier for their crawlspace. They had never had one properly installed, and with a dirt crawlspace, would routinely have water flood the space. Soon after they started their search for a vapor barrier, the homeowner received a letter advertising TC Hafford Basement Systems. They researched our company, and gave us the call. We had a representative investigate the crawlspace, and then we got to work!

We began by installing a SmartSump in the floor of the crawlspace, where the most water collected. This sump will evacuate the water gathering in this point of the crawlspace through a PVC discharge line. We then lined the inside perimeter of the wall/floor joint with a Drainage Matting. This mat will reduce the amount of water entering the interior of the crawlspace. Finally, we encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace liner. This liner covers all of the surfaces that water normally enters through. Being made of plastic, water will never pierce the CleanSpace. Maintaining a dry crawlspace atmosphere for many years to come. This finished the homeowners new vapor barrier. Keeping their originally dirt crawlspace dry by keeping the water out!

Looking to have their basement professionally protected, the homeowner called us to receive their free estimate. They chose what work they wanted done, and we sent in our crew to start working on the basement!

The WaterGuard then guides the gathered water to the sump, where we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This device is composed of three pumps, a primary and secondary pump for the bulk of the water, and a third, battery backup pump for when the power goes out. The water is evacuated from the pump through a PVC discharge line. On the exterior of the home, we attached a specially designed piece of pipe to this line, known as an IceGuard. The IceGuard will allow water to flow even if the lower end of the pipe is blocked by ice or other debris.

These three products working together will be sure to maintain a dry basement for this homeowner. A wet basement should no longer be a concern for them!

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.

Leaking Basement In Naples, ME Kept Dry With WaterGuard

A homeowner in Naples was having trouble with water leaking into their basement and crawlspace. They had a sump pump, but it wasn’t able to pump out the water that was on the opposite side of the basement or in the crawlspace. Seeking a solution, the homeowner got online. They soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems, and gave us a call. We dispatched a representative to inspect the home and give a free estimate. Then our crew went in to get to work!

We began by digging up the inside perimeter of the basement floor. This allowed us room to lay our WaterGuard system. These are uniquely designed pipes that will capture water as it enters through the walls or floor, guiding it to the sump. The system is then covered over with rocks and cement to conceal it beneath the floor without hindering functionality. We then installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier in the basement. This will take in the moist air, dry it out, and disperse it back out into the basement. This cycles through the air until all of the moisture has been removed, creating a dry atmosphere. Finally, within the crawlspace, we needed to install a proper vapor barrier. We encapsulated the space with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner is made of a thin plastic that completely locks out moisture trying to enter through the surrounding soil.

With these systems in place, the homeowner now has a dry, healthy basement to use however he sees fit. He will no longer need to fear any form of water damage.

WaterGuard Protects Whitefield, ME Basement From Water Damage

A homeowner in Whitefield with a flooding basement was looking for a way to protect their basement from potential water damage. With a basement that would regularly flood during heavy rains, this was a high priority for the homeowner, and they called TC Hafford Basement Systems right away. We had our representative dispatched to give the homeowner their free estimate, and then we got to work!

We began by excavating the inside perimeter of the basement floor, creating a space to install our WaterGuard pipe system. This system will capture water as it tries to enter the basement through the walls, guiding the water to the sump within the basement. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump in the sump, to enable system to remove the water from the basement through a PVC discharge line. Finally, on the outside of the home, we attached an IceGuard filter to the discharge line to allow water to continue to be pumped out of the basement; Even when the line is blocked by debris.

With these products in place, this homeowner will no longer have any issues with water flooding their basement!

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!

Harrison, ME Basement Kept Free of Water with WaterGuard Installation

A homeowner living in Harrison, ME was having trouble with the sump in their basement. The water that was leaking into the basement would occasionally gather in puddles instead of exiting through the sump. This dampness was a problem the homeowner wanted to deal with right away. After seeing an ad for TC Hafford Basement Systems on their TV, they called us to receive their free estimate. When they decided on what work they wanted done, they gave us the go-ahead to begin work!


Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work on using WaterGuard piping to keep this basement dry. To achieve this, a shallow trench was excavated into the perimeter of the basement floor for the WaterGuard to be laid in. The WaterGuard will surround the basement beneath the surface of the floor, feeding directly into the existing sump. After being buried beneath a fresh layer of concrete, the WaterGuard will now take in any leaking moisture through small slits along the bottom edge of each pipe. This will handle any water problems before they ever reach the surface of the basement floor.


Now that the WaterGuard has been installed in this basement floor, a flooding basement is now a thing of the past for this home. The homeowner will no longer need to manually sweep water to sump to be removed from the basement.

A homeowner living in Steep Falls, ME was looking for a way to have a few things done for their home. They wanted to better waterproof the crawlspace beneath their home and also better insulate the space. Not long after they began looking, they were referred to call us at TC Hafford Basement Systems to get a free estimate on the cost of the job. When they got their estimate, they liked what we had to offer and hired us to get the job done for them!


When our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work on better insulating the space first. To achieve this, Spray Foam was used along the upper edges of the crawlspace as well as along each joist supporting the home. This foam increases in size once sprayed and fills the cracks and gaps that might decrease a homes insulation efficiency. Next, a CleanSpace liner was used to encapsulate the interior of the crawlspace. This liner covers all of the walls as well as the floor of the space, locking out any outside moisture.


Now that this homeowner has a proper vapor barrier below their home, they can rest assured they're safe from a moisture problem developing in the future. The Spray Foam insulation will also help the homeowner in the long-run by keeping the price of heating or cooling their home down.

Bending Basement Wall in Pownal, ME Bent Back into Position with PowerBrace Installation

This was worrysome as it could lead to a cave-in, if it is left alone. The homeowner was soon referred to TC Hafford Basement Systems and called to ask about repairs. We gave the homeowner a free estimate on what could be done to solve their problem and they hired us right away to get the job done!


When our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work on the forcing the wall back to its original position. This required the use of a PowerBrace system. The PowerBrace is installed by placing several steel I-beams along the face of the bowing basement wall. The base of the PowerBraces are screwed into the foundation of the basement, locked in place against the lower side of the wall. The top of each beam is then secured into the joists in the ceiling of the basement, within an apparatus that allows the top of the beams to be tightened against the wall. These are then tightened over time until the wall is back in the original position, where the beams will keep it locked for the future!


Now that the PowerBrack system has been implemented in this homeowners basement, they can rest assured their basement won't suffer any major damage from a potential cave-in.

West Baldwin, ME Basement Kept Water-Free with WaterGuard Installation

A homeowner that lived in West Baldwin, ME had a problem building up beneath their home. The concrete foundation below the home had been leaking water onto the basement floor, which was causing flooding in the space. Looking to have this problem dealt with as soon as possible, the homeowner searched for a solution online and soon discovered us at TC Hafford. After they called our office in Wells, we set them up with a free estimate to inform them of their options. They hired us right away to get the job done and solve their wet basement problems!

Once our installation crew arrived at the home, their first task was to install WaterGuard piping below the surface of the floor. These pipes were buried in shallow trenches that were excavated into the perimeter of the concrete floor. Covered by loose rocks and concrete, the pipes will remain concealed within the floor while taking in any leaking moisture through small slits along their bottom edges. The water collected in the WaterGuard is guided through the floor to the sump feeding directly into the SuperSump pump we installed. The SuperSump removes water from the basement at a rate of 2,650 gallons of water per hour. This water exits the home through a PVC discharge line where it is carried a distance from the home before being deposited onto the ground to flow away from the home.

With their newly waterproofed basement, this homeowner can now make use of the space again without needing to fear water damage destroying their property! The WaterGuard & SuperSump will ensure this basement floor remains dry in the future.

Flooding Peaks Island, ME Basement Protected with WaterGuard Installation

When a flooding basement began to be a problem for this homeowner, they were unsure how to resolve the problem at first. After a quick search online, they discovered TC Hafford could help them in their Peaks Island, ME home. Soon after they called our office, our sales representative was able to schedule a time to give them a free estimate of their options. They agreed to the work and we got started on the waterproofing.

As soon as our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started by pouring a fresh slab of concrete over the dirt floor of the basement that had been flooding. A slab alone won’t fully protect this home, however. To keep water from entering through the new slab, a WaterGuard piping system had been buried in the outer perimeter of the slab as it was installed. The WaterGuard pipes have slits along their lower-outer edges, allowing for the collection of moisture leaking through the slab. The water then flows through the WaterGuard to the sump where it will be removed from the home.

Within the sump in the new slab, a TripleSafe sump system was installed. This device houses three pumps, as the name suggests. The primary pump functions most of the time, handling the bulk of the water needing removal. The secondary pump will activate if the primary pump either fails for any reason or requires additional pumping force. The third pump is a battery-operated backup pump, able to continue the water-removal while the home is without power. The water passing through the TripleSafe all flows out of the home through a PVC discharge line.

Outside the home, two pieces of additional piping were attached to further protect the basement from flooding. The first being an IceGuard pipe segment attached to the line just after it exits the home. Here, upward angled holes keep the basement safe from blockages caused by ice, by releasing the backing up water through said holes. Finally, a LawnScape discharge port was attached to the end of the line, covering it with a grate. This will prevent debris from forming blockages within the line.

Now that this homeowner has a new basement floor as well as proper waterproofing, they can now make use of the previously damp and musty space. The WaterGuard piping will ensure the surface of this new slab will remain dry for years into the future!

Damp Basement in Orrs Island, ME Kept Dry with SuperSump Installation

After living with a damp basement for so long, this homeowner thought it was time they had something done about it. After speaking to some contractors, they were referred to TC Hafford Basement Systems to take care of the dampness problem below their Orrs Island, ME home. After talking with our office staff over the phone, they were set up with a meeting with one of our sales reps. for a free estimate. They agreed to have the work done and we dispatched our crew.

Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started with this waterproofing job by installing a SuperSump in the floor of this basement. Nearby, an UltraSump backup battery was installed and connected to the SuperSump. The SuperSump will act to pump and water from this basement up and out of the home through a PVC discharge line at a rate of 2,650 gallons of water every hour. To help keep the sump operational even in the harshest storms, the nearby UltraSump will activate during power-outages. The UltraSump will enable the SuperSump to function for around 11,000 gallons of water-removal.

Outside the home, our crew made some final additions to the discharge line to enhance the effectiveness of the system. The first addition was an IceGuard pipe section intersected into the pipes just beyond where they exit the home. The IceGuard has special holes built in that only allow for water trapped in the line to escape, without hindering normal water flow. This will protect the sump from backing up water if ice blocks the line. Lastly, a LawnScape discharge port was attached to the end of the line. Here, the water exits onto the ground through the grate on the LawnScape. This grate will prevent debris from entering the line to cause blockages.

Now that they have an effective waterproofing solution beneath their home, this homeowner will no longer need to live with a damp or flooding basement. The SuperSump & UltraSump combination will ensure this basement stays dry!

SaniDry Installation Keeps Damp Bailey Island, ME Basement Dry

Living with a damp basement, this Bailey Island, ME homeowner was looking for a solution to their problem. While searching online, they soon discovered us at TC Hafford Basement Systems and thought we would be the perfect company for the job. They called us and we set them up with a free estimate from one of our sales reps. The homeowner hired us right away once they heard what we could offer them. We then dispatched our crew and got started!

As soon as the installation crew arrived at the homeowner’s property, they began work on the damp basement by installing a SaniDry CX dehumidifier on the floor of the space. This device will pull in the damp air within the space, separating any moisture from it. The dried air is then circulated back into the basement while the collected water is removed. The circulation of the dried air will push more of the damp air back toward the SaniDry, continuing this process until the basement is free of moisture in the air. To remove this water, a SmartSump pump was installed in the floor of the basement. The SmartSump will take the water and force it out of the home through a PVC discharge line.

Following the discharge line outside, two additions were made to these pipes to further protect the home from moisture. First, an IceGuard section of piping was connected to the line just beyond where it leaves the home. The IceGuard has upward facing holes built-in, to protect the basement from blockages. These allow for trapped water to escape the line without backing up into the home. Next, a LawnScape discharge port was connected to the end of the line. This piece has a grate covering the exit of the line, allowing the water to exit onto the lawn without letting in debris that would overwise clog the discharge line.

Now that this homeowner has a system in place to remove moisture from their basement, they can be sure no moisture problems will take root below their home. The SaniDry and SmartSump installations will ensure this home remains dry for years to come!

A homeowner that lived in Long Island, ME had recently began to have trouble with water collecting on their concrete basement floor. The water seemed to be leaking in through the foundation below the home, leaving the homeowner unsure how to put an end to the problem. After a search online, they called us at TC Hafford Basement Systems to see if we could help solve their problem. We set them up with a free estimate and went over their options with them. They soon gave us the green light to begin work on waterproofing their flooding basement.

Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started on the floor of the basement by excavating a shallow trench into the perimeter of the floor. This allowed for WaterGuard piping to be laid down within the floor, surrounding the space. The pipes each have slits along their bottom edges. Buried beneath a layer of loose rocks and concrete, the WaterGuard within the floor will capture any leaking moisture in the future and guide it through the floor to the sump.

To handle the removal of the water from the basement, our crew installed a SuperSump pump in the basement floor with the WaterGuard pipes feeding directly into it. The SuperSump can remove water from the home at a rate of 2,650 gallons of water every hour, plenty of power to keep any rainwater at bay. Nearby, an UltraSump backup battery was installed and connected to the SuperSump. This battery will enable the SuperSump to continue to force water out of the home even if a storm knocks out the power in the home. This device will then charge after power is returned. The water leaves the home through a PVC discharge line.

Outside, two additions were made to this discharge line to better protect this home from potential water problems. The first was an IceGuard pipe segment placed just beyond where the line exits the side of the home. This pipe has upward facing holes that will stop water trapped in the line by ice or debris from reaching back into the interior of the basement. Lastly, the end of the line was capped with a LawnScape discharge port. This piece has a grate over the end, allowing the water leaving the home to flow freely while holding back debris that might otherwise clog the line.

Now that this homeowner has properly installed basement waterproofing, they can use their basement without the need to fear possible water damage. The WaterGuard & SuperSump system will ensure this basement floor remains dry for years to come!

Leaking Crack in Harrison, ME Sealed with FlexiSpan

Having been living with a damp basement for some time, this Harrison, ME homeowner though it was time they had something done to dry their basement. A crack along one of the concrete walls was the problem causing the dampness below this home. Wanting the job done right the first time, the homeowner called us at TC Hafford Basement Systems as soon as they saw us on their TV. Once they sat down with one of our sales representatives, the homeowner decided they wanted us to solve their wet basement problem!

As soon as our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started clearing the crack of small debris using a coarse brush. To begin sealing this crack, a layer of sealant was applied within and around the length of the crack. Next, a foam core was laid along the crack, covered by a second layer of sealant. This forms a FlexiSpan seal over the crack. As the name suggests, the FlexiSpan is able to conform to small changes in the shape of the crack over time to prevent future leakages. The completed seal will keep out the moisture that had been so easily leaking into the basement in the past.

With their new seal in place, the crack in this homeowner’s basement will no longer be a problem. The FlexiSpan will keep this crack from leaking for many years into the future!

With the basement showing signs of early mold development, the homeowner needed a solution, fast! When they heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a coworker, they called us right away to set up their free estimate. They soon spoke with our sales representative and decided on what work they wanted done to protect their basement.

Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started solving the problem of the crack in one of the concrete walls of the basement. Utilizing a FlexiSpan seal to keep water from entering through this wall, our crew quickly applied the three-part seal along the length of the crack. The FlexiSpan structure has a foam core between two layers of sealant. This foam core allows the seal to bend and contort to stay in place over the crack, should it ever shift slightly in shape in the future.

Next, to eliminate the developing mold problem entirely, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed on the basement floor. This device will pull in the surrounding damp air and separate the moisture from it. The dried air is then circulated back into the basement where it will cycle more damp air back to the SaniDry, continuing the process. Once the atmosphere within this basement is free of moisture, any mold attempting to grow will no longer be able to sustain itself. Finally, the moisture collected through the SaniDry is pumped from the home through a PVC discharge line.

With their leakage problem sealed and the mold growth eliminated, this homeowner no longer needs to worry about their basement during rainy weather. The SaniDry Sedona will ensure the space remains moisture-free for years to come!

WaterGuard Installation Saves Pownal, ME Basement from Flooding

Having lived with a wet basement for some time, this Pownal, ME homeowner thought it was time they did something about the problem!

This system rests just below the surface of the concrete floor, around the outer most edge of the basement. Buried beneath a fresh layer of concrete, the WaterGuard will now capture the leaking moisture and guide it directly to the SuperSump pump that we installed in the floor where it will be removed from the home through a PVC discharge line. Next, an UltraSump backup battery was installed and connected to the SuperSump to keep it operational even during power-outages in the home. Now during any rainy weather, any leakage will flow from the WaterGuard to the SuperSump and be pumped from the home through a PVC discharge line.

Following this line outside, two additional pieces were attached to better waterproof the basement. The first addition was an IceGuard pipe segment attached just beyond where the line leaves the home. This piece has special upward facing holes built-in that allow for only trapped water to escape. Now if ice or debris were to clog the line, the water would escape before flooding back into the basement. Finally, the water will exit the end of the line through the grate of a LawnScape discharge port. This grate will hold back debris that would otherwise easily block up the discharge line while allowing the water to easily flow out onto the ground to drain away harmlessly.

Now that this homeowner has a fully functional waterproofing system in place, they can be at ease during any rainfall knowing they won’t need to manually remove the water. The WaterGuard & SuperSump will operate in tandem to keep this basement completely water-free!

Waterproofing Success: TripleSafe Sump Pump Installation in New Gloucester, ME Home

We received a call from a homeowner in New Gloucester, ME and System Design Specialist Tom Rich went out to meet with the homeowner for a free estimate. In order to fully protect the basement, Tom put together a solution using WaterGuard perimeter drain and a TripleSafe Sump Pump. Now the homeowner can rest easy knowing that water will no longer be an issue!

 

The TripleSafe Sump Pump is designed to efficiently remove water from your basement, even in the most demanding situations. It combines three powerful pumps, each with its own unique functionality, to provide unparalleled performance and ensure your basement stays dry, regardless of the circumstances.

 

The first pump, a Zoeller M53, is a high-capacity pump that kicks into action as soon as water enters the sump pit. It swiftly removes the water, preventing any immediate flooding and effectively managing normal water seepage. With its robust motor and efficient design, the primary pump is the backbone of the TripleSafe system.

 

The second pump, a Zoeller M98, acts as a backup to the primary pump. In the event of a power outage or pump failure, the secondary pump seamlessly takes over, keeping your basement protected even when the primary pump is unable to operate. This added layer of security ensures uninterrupted water removal and peace of mind during unforeseen circumstances.

 

The third pump, known as the UltraSump battery backup pump, provides an extra layer of defense against basement flooding. Powered by a maintenance-free battery, this pump operates independently of the primary and secondary pumps. It activates automatically during power outages or if the primary and secondary pumps are overwhelmed, ensuring continuous water removal and safeguarding your basement.

 

Additionally, the TripleSafe Sump Pump incorporates advanced monitoring and alert systems. An alarm system alerts you to any potential issues or malfunctions, allowing for timely maintenance and intervention. The innovative WaterWatch alarm system notifies you if the water level in the sump pit rises above normal, providing an early warning sign of potential flooding.

We believe you deserve only the best. That’s why we install a patented proven system developed and tested by Basement Systems, Inc. – the leader in "All Things Basementy!" For your peace of mind, our basement waterproofing system comes with a Warranty. We have a team of extensively trained basement repair specialists who can work with you to find the best solution for your home’s basement.
