A couple from Jay had a basement that would always be wet. They would keep some belongings in the basement, and these items would always get moist not long after being left in the basement. This was a problem for these homeowners, and so after seeing an ad on TV, they contacted TC Hafford. We took a look at the basement and informed the homeowners of their options for how to remedy the situation. After they chose which option they preferred, we got to work!
There was a crack located in one of the walls, this was the main entrance for the water flowing into the basement. This crack was soon covered with FexiSpan. FlexiSpan is a special three layer seal that both prevents water from coming through any crack, and also allows the seal itself to bend if the crack shifts at all. We then installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. This keeps any moisture out of the air that might still make its way into the basement. Now this couple no longer needs to fret when it comes to their belongings becoming wet.
A homeowner in Wilton gave us a call when they noticed mold growing in their basement. This issue had to be resolved immediately, and TC Hafford was on the case. The main problem with the basement was the amount of moisture in the air. This moisture created a perfect environment for mold to grow. This mold, if left alone, could potentially damage the supporting frame of the house. To resolve this issue, the homeowner had us install a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. This will suck in the air from the basement, dry it out, and push the dry air out across the basement. Now mold is not anything this homeowner needs to worry about.
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.
A homeowner in Strong was looking for a way to make sure his crawlspace didn’t flood every time it rained. His search for a solution was brought to an end once he saw an ad for TC Hafford Basement Systems on his television. He contacted us right away and set up a meeting with one of our representatives for a free estimate. After the meeting, the homeowner decided on what work they wanted done and we sent in our crew! We got to work installing a CleanSpace Liner. This liner encapsulates the entire crawlspace, except for the ceiling. Locking out moisture by acting as a barrier between the walls and the crawlspace. Being sealing against the walls/supports the CleanSpace lines, water stands no chance of entering. Now this homeowner can rest easy knowing their crawlspace will no longer flood during heavy rains.
A homeowner in Phillips had owned their home for ten years. Throughout the years, they had noticed their garage slab had been sinking down. This was only getting worse and they needed a way to realign this slab with the rest of their home. They got onto their computer and searched online for the best solution; which they soon found when they found TC Hafford Basement Systems. They made the call, and we sent a representative to take a look. After receiving their free estimate, the homeowner made their decision and we got to work!
We needed to level out the slab with the rest of the home, and to do this, we needed to use PolyLevel. We made a slight hole in the slab, and pushed a nozzle into this hole to inject the PolyLevel. PolyLevel is a foam injection that will expand underneath the slab and push it up back into place. Once the slab reaches the right height, the foam will solidify and hold it there permanently. Now after ten years, this homeowner has a level garage!
A homeowner in Rangeley started having trouble with water coming in through the corners of his crawlspace. This would happen during heavy rains, but it mostly happened after winter when the snow melts. The homeowner was tired of his crawlspace flooding and needed to do something about it. He got online to find a solution, and found TC Hafford Basement Systems not too long after. He gave us a call, and we got to work on the crawlspace!
We got to work by laying down a Drainage Matting around the inside perimeter of the crawlspace. This will hold the water back from entering the air in the crawlspace, giving it time to escape back into the surrounding soil. We then encapsulated the entire crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner will lock out any moisture trying to enter through the walls or floor of the crawlspace. Maintaining a dry atmosphere within the crawlspace, during the heaviest rains, or even after the snow melts!
A homeowner in Bryant Pond, Maine was experiencing a moisture problem in their basement. Moisture was coming in through the cement, and leaking into puddles on the basement floor. Fearing water damage to their belongings stored in the basement, the homeowner sought a way to prevent further water build up. They called TC Hafford Basement Systems after seeing us on TV and we had our representative give them a free estimate. They selected what work they wanted done, and we got to work!
We got started on the basement by excavating the interior perimeter of the basement floor. This enabled us to lay our WaterGuard pipe system into the new trench in the floor. It was then covered with loose rocks and cement to conceal it without hindering functionality. The WaterGuard collects water as it enters through the cement, preventing it from reaching the interior of the basement. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump in the basement to evacuated the water collected by the WaterGuard. The water exits through a PVC discharge line, which we attached an IceGuard pipe to on the exterior of the home. The IceGuard will allow water to continue to flow from the pipe without problem, should the lower end become blocked by ice or other debris.
These new installations will maintain a dry basement for many years to come. This homeowner will no longer fear water damage!
The owner of the Webster Free Library in Kingfield was looking for professional basement waterproofing. Their basement had been gathering moisture, and this was absolutely unacceptable for a library, because water damage was a serious risk! Seeking help immediately, the owner took to the internet and soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems. They called us to set up a meeting, and we had our representative over soon after to give them their free estimate. After going over options, we sent in our crew and got to work!
To begin, the inside border of the basement floor was excavated to form a trench. Within this trench, we laid down our WaterGuard pipe system. These pipes are then covered with loose rocks and cement to conceal them without preventing their function. They capture water as it seeps through the concrete, guiding it toward the sump, instead of allowing it to leak up onto the floor surface. Within the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will evacuate all the water brought to it by the WaterGuard system. The water is pumped out through a PVC discharge line, which we attached an IceGuard to on the exterior of the building. The IceGuard is a special section of pipe that will allow the water to escape the pipe should the lower end of the line become blocked by ice or other debris. Finally, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier within the basement. This will eliminate any moisture present in the air, creating a dry atmosphere.
With this waterproofing in place, the owner of this establishment will have no need to fear water damage in the future!
A homeowner in Weld was beginning to notice a smell coming from his basement. He had recently had the space waterproofed with a WaterGuard system, but the moisture was still persisting in the air. This was allowing a small amount of mold to grow. Seeking a way to prevent the mold from spreading, the homeowner called TC Hafford Basement Systems, and we were on the job!
Even though water was being kept off of the floor, moisture was still finding its way into the air. To prevent this from continuing, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier within the basement. This dehumidifier takes in the moist air surrounding it, and dries it out. Once dry, the air is shot out into the basement, forcing more moist air back towards the SaniDry. This creates a cycle unitl all of the air within the space is dry. This new dry air will eliminate the habitat in which the mold can grow, killing it off. This homeowner now has a perfectly waterproof basement!
A homeowner in Farmington had a basement which would frequently take on water during heavy rains. This was a problem for the homeowner because he was using this space for storage, and didn’t want his belongings to be damaged by the water. After seeing TC Hafford Basement Systems on his television, this homeowner knew we were exactly the company he needed! He gave us a call and we got working on the basement!
We began by digging out the inside perimeter of the basement floor. This allowed us to lay down our special WaterGuard pipe system, which was then covered in loose rocks and cement to hide it beneath the floor without stopping it from working. The WaterGuard pipes will capture water as it travels through the cement, not allowing it to reach the surface. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump with an UltraSump backup battery attached. The water collected by the WaterGuard is guided to this new sump, which pumps the water up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Finally, on the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe to the middle of the discharge line. This IceGuard will allow water to exit the pipe in the event of a blockage lower down the pipe.
With these systems in place and working together, this homeowner will no longer need to worry about water finding its way into his basement!
A homeowner in Oquossoc had noticed his basement wall was bowing. This was an immediate concern for the homeowner, as he feared it may cave in. He got on his computer and searched for a solution right away. This is where he found TC Hafford Basement Systems. He called us to set up a meeting with our representative, and we inspected the wall to give him his free estimate. After that, we sent in our crew to get started!
To begin with the installation of Geo-Lock Wall Anchors, we drilled deep horizontal holes evenly spaced along the wall in a line. We then dug out vertical holes on the lawn outside the wall to meet up with the previously drilled holes. We then inserted long poles in through the horizontal holes, attaching them on both ends to thin metal plates. The second pair of plates are inserted through the vertical holes. These plates are secured parallel to the wall, to use the soil for support and pull on the wall. These can be tightened over time to pull the wall back into its original position.
With these anchors in place, this homeowner no longer needs to worry about a cave in within his basement!
This homeownr from Farmington, ME had water entering their basement through the concrete foundation itself. They were unsure how to stop the leakages and needed to regularly remove the water themselves. Soon after seeing us on their TV, the homeowner called TC Hafford Basement Systems to see what we could do to solve their problem. After they received their free estimate, they hired us to get the job done!
When our installation crew arrived at the home, they needed to dig into the basement floor to properly waterproof this basement. A shallow trench was excavated into the perimeter of the concrete floor. Inside this new trench, a WaterGuard piping system was laid down surrounding the basement. Loose rocks and concrete were used to seal the pipes within the floor. The WaterGuard pipes will capture any leaking moisture from now-on through small slits in the bottom edge of the pipes. The water is then guided beneath the floors surface to the sump where it will be removed from the basement.
Within the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump can pump at a rate of 2,650 gallons of water per hour, which will ensure this basement isn't overwhelmed by any amount of leakage. An UltraSump backup battery was attached to the SuperSump nearby. This will keep the pump functional even if the home loses power during a heavy storm. The water is forced up and out of the home by the SuperSump where is is carried away from the home.
Outside the home, our crew made two final additions to the discharge line before this job was complete. The first was an IceGuard pipe section attached just beyond where the lien exits the home. This piece has special holes built-in that allow for blocked water to escape without causing a backup into the home. Lastly, a LawnScape piece was used to cap the end of the line. This blends the exit into the surrounding lawn without allowing debris to enter the pipe.
Now that their basement has been properly waterproofed, this homeowner can make use of the space. The WaterGuard & SuperSump will keep this space dry for the future.
Living with a damp basement, this Phillips, ME homeowner was in the market for some basement waterproofing. A basement that was almost always musty and damp was not something this homeowner wanted to continue living with. They soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a friend and called us to receive their free estimate. After our sales representative went over the details of their options, the homeowner hired us right away to get the job done!
As soon as our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started on setting up a system to dry the air within this basement. To pull the moisture out of the air, a SaniDry XP Dehumidifier was installed on the basement floor. Nearby, a Condensate Pump was installed and connected to the SaniDry. Now, the SaniDry will take in the surrounding damp air and separate the moisture from it. This collected water is passed to the pump to be removed from the basement through a discharge line. Finally, the now-dry air is circulated back into the basement to allow more damp air to be processed by the SaniDry and continue this process until all of the basement air has been cleared of moisture.
With these improvements to their basement, this homeowner can rest assured their musty basement conditions are now a thing of the past! The SaniDry & Condensate Pump will ensure this basement stays dry!
With a crawlspace that was regularly damp and musty, this Kingfield, ME homeowner was in the market for a way to remedy this issue. After seeing an ad for TC Hafford on their TV, the homeowner called our office staff to set up their free estimate! Once the received their estimate and reviewed their options, the homeowner gave us the go-ahead to get started on waterproofing their crawlspace.
Once our installation crew made it to the property, they got started waterproofing the crawlspace right away. This began with a Drainage Matting being laid across the floor. This layer sits just above the surface of the floor and has holes throughout. This allows the water blocked by the vapor barrier to collect beneath the Drainage Matting and flow to where it can most easily drain back into the ground. Over the top of this, a CleanSpace liner was used to encapsulate the space. The CleanSpace covers all of the walls as well as the floor in a thin plastic sheet that locks out outside moisture, preventing the interior of the space from becoming damp in the future. These two layers together now forms a proper vapor barrier to keep water from building up inside the crawlspace.
With their new barrier in place below their home, the homeowner should notice the musty smell that had been coming from the space dissipate soon. The Drainage Matting & CleanSpace liner will keep the interior of this crawlspace dry for many years into the future!
When this homeowner living in Weld, ME began to notice moisture beneath their home, they needed to have it dealt with as soon as possible. Leaving the state for a while, the homeowner did not want to come home to a flooded home and mold problems. Needing both their basement and crawlspace protected from the elements, the homeowner was unsure where to start. To find out how to get the job done, the homeowner searched online and soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems. They called us up and we dispatched our sales rep. to give the homeowner a free estimate on the cost. After this, they gave us the green light to get started on waterproofing their home.
When our installation crew arrived at the home, they first began work on the crawlspace. TO keep water from entering, a vapor barrier was to be used. First, a Drainage Matting was laid across the dirt floor of the crawlspace. The Drainage Mat has holes throughout it and sits elevated off the floor slightly. This enables water blocked by the finished barrier to flow out through the dirt using the channels below the mat. Next, a CleanSpace liner was used to encapsulate the crawlspace completely. This covered the floor and walls of the space with a thin white sheet, sealing off the interior of the crawlspace from any leaking moisture and finishing the vapor barrier installation.
Moving to the basement, a sump system would be installed to prevent water from gathering on the floor of the basement. A SuperSump sump pump was placed inside the concrete basement floor and an UltraSump backup battery was connected nearby. The SuperSump can pump over 2,600 gallons of water from the home every hour, plenty of power to keep out any leaking rainwater. The connected UltraSump will provide the SuperSump with power during any outages in the home, protecting the home from especially heavy storms while the homeowner is away and charging when power returns.
The pumped water exits the home through a PVC discharge line, where it flows a distance away from the home. Attached to this line are two special pipe segments to further the protection of this basement. The first was an IceGuard pipe segment attached just beyond where the line exits the home. The IceGuard has upward facing holes built-in, to allow for trapped water to escape the line. This will prevent ice inside the line causing the water to backup inside the home and flood the basement. Finally, a LawnScape discharge port was added to the end of the line. The LawnScape section ends the line with a grate, blocking debris from entering the pipe while allowing the water to freely flow.
With these improvements to their home, this homeowner can now leave for extended periods of time without needing to worry about their home flooding while they are away. The SuperSump system and CleanSpace encapsulation will ensure this home stays dry for years into the future!
After moving to Rangeley, ME, this homeowner soon noticed a problem beneath their home. A crack along one of the concrete walls was letting in water during rainfall, which would pool up on the floor of the basement. Having worked with us before, the homeowner called TC Hafford to have us solve their problem. They spoke with our representative about their options and then we got to work on the solution!
When our installation crew got to the home, they began work on a FlexiSpan seal to keep out the leaking water. To start, the crack was brushed clear of dust and debris by a coarse brush to help the seal adhere better. Next, a layer of sealant was applied within the crack, before a foam mat was laid on top. The foam will sit inside the core of the finished seal, to help maintain the shape of the overall seal while allowing it to shift slightly to any changes in the crack. Finally, a second layer of sealant was applied over the top of the foam, to lock the structure against the wall and complete the FlexiSpan installation.
With the crack in their basement wall sealed, this homeowner will no longer suffer from water damage due to leaks through the wall. The FlexiSpan will keep this basement water-free in the future.
When this property owner in Phillips, ME noticed water gathering in the crawlspace below one of their homes, they knew who to call right away to take care of the problem. They contacted our office staff at TC Hafford Basement Systems to set up a free estimate on the cost of the work. After speaking with our sales representative about the solutions, they agreed on what they wanted done and our crew was dispatched to start working.
Once our installation crew arrived at the property, they got to work on providing the crawlspace with a proper vapor barrier to hold back the moisture that had been gathering in the space. This began with a Drainage Matting being laid across the floor of the crawlspace. This mat, sitting on supports just above the floors surface, will create small channels below itself that the blocked water can follow to where it can most easily drain back through the ground. Over this Drainage Matting, a CleanSpace liner was utilized to encapsulate the entirety of the crawlspace, save for the ceiling. This protective barrier seals off the interior of the crawlspace from any leaking moisture, keeping the atmosphere inside the barrier dry and healthy.
With a proper barrier in the crawlspace, this property owner will no longer need to worry about moisture problems developing below the home. The CleanSpace liner and Drainage Matting will ensure the crawlspace remains dry for years to come!
This homeowner living in Kingfield, ME had been living with the side effects of a damp crawlspace for some time. With moisture building up in the space below their home, musty air filled their basement and would occasionally waft up into the home. These unpleasant conditions were something the homeowner wanted to be rid of and after hearing about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a family friend, they called us right away to receive their free estimate on a solution. Once they spoke with our sales representative to review their options, they made a decision and we got started on the waterproofing of their crawlspace!
When our installation crew arrived at the home, they began by providing the crawlspace with a proper vapor barrier to prevent future leakages. First, a Drainage Matting was laid across the crawlspace floor. This mat creates channels between itself and the floor for water blocked by the barrier to follow and drain back through the ground. Over this mat, a CleanSpace liner was used to encapsulate the interior of the crawlspace. Completely covering the walls and floor, this liner locks out moisture trying to enter from the surrounding ground. These two layers together form the new protective vapor barrier.
On the surface of the now-covered floor, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed. The SaniDry will pull in the damp air still within the space and separate the moisture from it. The separated moisture is passed to a Condensate Pump installed nearby. The pump then forces the collected water out of the home through a discharge line. Finally, the dried air is circulated back into the crawlspace, so that more damp air can be processed.
With these improvements to their crawlspace, they should notice the signs of the dampness disappear in a short amount of time. The new SaniDry Sedona alongside a proper vapor barrier will keep this home moisture free for the future.
With parts of their concrete basement wall caving inward, this Oquossoc, ME homeowner was looking for a way to hold this wall in place as soon as they could possibly have it done. They called us at TC Hafford Basement Systems after seeing us on their TV and we set them up with a free estimate! After hearing what we could do for them, the homeowner was ready to have us get started on this project.
Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work installing PowerBrace supports on this basement wall. To install these, first several holes were drilled along the face of the wall. Next, the eight-foot PowerBrace piers were inserted through these holes and connected to the footings that were buried from the outside. Finally, the interior plates were fastened to the PowerBrace piers and tightened against the wall. These newly installed supports will pull the wall back to its original position soon after installation and can be tightened in the future if necessary.
With their basement wall back under control, this homeowner has one less thing to worry about! The PowerBrace supports will maintain this basement wall for years to come!
Living in a 50-year-old home, this Rangeley, ME homeowner regularly experienced a flooding basement whenever the water level in a nearby lake rose. Looking for a way to put an end to this flooding, they searched online and soon discovered our TC Hafford Basement Systems website. The homeowner called our office staff to set up their free estimate and met with our Sales Representative soon after to discuss their options. Liking what we could do to prevent future flooding, they hired us to get the job done!
When our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started on this basement floor by excavating a shallow trench into the perimeter of the floor. Within this new trench, they were able to lay WaterGuard Piping surrounding the basement floor. Buried beneath a fresh layer of concrete, these pipes will collect any water entering this basement as it passes through the typical entry point, the floor itself. The water then travels through these pipes to the sump where it enters the TripleSafe pump installed within.
The TripleSafe unit houses three pumps, each activating at different times to keep the basement water-free around the clock! The first and second pumps may be active at the same time, with the secondary pump only activating if and when the primary becomes overwhelmed. This leaves the third pump, which is powered by an internal battery as opposed to the other two pumps running off the power in the home. This will enable the TripleSafe to keep removing water from the home even during a power outage. Any water leaving the home through the sump will exit through a PVC discharge line that carries the water a distance from the home.
With these waterproofing systems in place, this homeowner should soon notice their basement remains dry even during the exceptionally wet time of year. The WaterGuard & TripleSafe installations will keep this basement water-free for years to come!
