Job Stories From Kennebec County, ME
Oakland, ME, Homeowner Waterproofs Finished Basement

A finished basement in Oakland was having water seep in through the corners. This was worrying the homeowner, and shortly after hearing about TC Hafford through a friend, they decided to give us a call. After receiving a free estimate, the homeowner decided to move forward and get their basement waterproofed.

We started this job by digging up the perimeter of the basement. This opened up a space to put in our WaterGuard system, which catches the water before it reaches the interior of the basement. After getting the WaterGuard pipes in place, concrete is then poured over them to seal them in place. These pipes lead to a newly installed SuperSump sump pump, which then pumps any water out of the basement. Finally we attached an IceGuard on the outside of the house. This allows water to flow from the house even if the lower end of the discharge pipe is blocked by debris or ice. Now this homeowner never needs to worry about their basement getting wet in the future.

Damp Basement in Winthrop, ME, Dried and Sealed

A homeowner in Winthrop had been experiencing issues with a wet basement since they first moved into their house. This wasn’t too big of a problem for the homeowner, until they changed the pitch of their roof. After this, somehow even more water began to enter the basement. This is when, after seeing an ad on TV, the homeowner decided to contact TC Hafford.

We got to work starting by installing a WaterGuard waterproofing system. This is a pipe that encapsulates the interior perimeter of the basement. It sits slightly under the floor, and captures any water entering through either the walls or the floor. We then connected this WaterGuard system to a SuperSump sump pump. This pump takes the water from the basement and pushed it up and out of the basement. On the outside of the house, we finished this project with an IceGuard piece. This section of pipe allows for water to escape the pipe should ice or other debris block the flow further along. These newly implemented systems working together should keep this homeowner happy, and the basement dry.

Basement in South China, ME is Gathering Moisture and in Need of a Dehumidifier

A homeowner in South China was having moisture gather in their basement. This moisture could easily lead to the growth of mold. The homeowner took to the internet for a solution. TC Hafford got the call and sent a team out to fix the problem! After inspecting the basement, the optimal solution was to install a dehumidifier. The homeowner chose to go with a SaniDry XP. This dehumidifier will now keep the homeowners basement dry and moisture free!

Finished Basement in Monmouth, ME, Protected From Water

A homeowner in Monmouth with a finished basement experienced a terrible occurrence. While away from the house, their basement flooded and the carpet got destroyed. This need to not only be fixed, but prevented in the future. TC Hafford got the call, and sent out a representative to take a look. The home already had a sump pump with a discharge line, but that pump just wasn’t getting the job done. We took out the old pump and installed an UltraSump sump pump to keep water up and out of the basement. The homeowner also had a SaniDry XP installed in their basement to keep the moisture out of the air as well as off the floor.

Humid Basement In Litchfield, ME Aired Out Properly

A homeowner in Litchfield had a very humid basement. This humidity could easily lead to the growth of mold. If left alone, this mold could then eventually lower the structural integrity of the house supports. The homeowner took to the internet to find the solution and came across TC Hafford Basement Systems. After contacting us for an estimate, we had a representative out to take a look and give potential solutions. Soon after this we got to work installing a SaniDry XP Dehumidifier. This not only dehumidifies the air, it also circulates it around the entire basement. This ensures the dry air reaches out into the other sections of a basement, and not just the local area of installation.

Crack In Clinton, ME, Basement Sealed Properly With FlexiSpan

A resident of the town of Clinton had noticed a problem forming in their basement. It was a crack in the wall. This crack could lead to several issues in the future, such as water gathering on the floor, or mold growing from moisture in the air. The homeowner saw an ad on TV for TC Hafford and called us immediately. We then sent out a crew to get to work fixing the crack.

To start the solution, we filled the crack with sealant. This acts as the first line of defense against moisture. Then a foam pad is laid over the top of this sealant, to hold it in place and to act as a secondary barrier. Finally a second layer of sealant is laid on top of the foam, to completely seal any moisture out of the basement. This layered system, know as FlexiSpan is capable of stretching and shifting. Should the crack manipulate at all, the FlexiSpan should stay snug to the crack, locking out water without fail.

Crawlspace In Belgrade, ME, Sealed Off From The Elements

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!

Smelly Basement In Farmingdale, ME, Aired Out With SaniDry

A homeowner in Farmingdale had a basement with a rather excessive mold problem. This was causing the basement to smell quite a lot, which was upsetting the homeowner. This mold problem was most likely caused by moisture gathering in the air in the basement. Humid air is a wonderful breeding ground for mold, and mold was thriving in this basement. The homeowner needed a solution and they took to the internet to find one. After coming across TC Hafford Basement Systems, they knew what they wanted to do. We had a crew head out to get to work in no time. We installed a SaniDry XP Dehumidifier. This dehumidifier doesn’t just remove moisture from a small secluded area of a basement; it will take the air around itself, dry it out, and blow it across the basement to allow for the other moist air to be circulated and dehumidified as well. Removing any chance of allowing mold grow, maintaining a healthy basement for this homeowner.

Basement in Corinth, ME, is in Drastic Need of a Dehumidifier

Two homeowners in Corinth were having trouble with water collecting in their basement. It wasn’t that the water was collecting in the wrong places, it would collect in the rather large sump. But the water would sit there a while before the pump could remove all of it. This was causing the air to become saturated with moisture. Moist air creates great living conditions for mold, so the homeowners needed a way to alleviate this moisture without altering their sump. After visiting a nearby home show, they gave TC Hafford Basement Systems a call. We sent out a crew to install a SaniDry XP. This dehumidifier would take all the moisture out of the air, and disperse the dry air throughout the basement. Maintaining a dry, mold free basement.

Crack In Windsor, NH, Basement Wall Fixed With Polyurethane

A homeowner in Windsor was looking to put their home on the market. But a crack in their basement wall was going to be a big problem when trying to sell their house. They soon got online to find an solution to their problem. After coming across TC Hafford Basement Systems, they knew we were the right choice!

Once our crew arrived and got to work, they needed to start by covering the crack with a paste to hold in the Polyurethane. The Polyurethane is pumped into the crack, and sealed in so it can form an impassable barrier for water. This fix is now able to be painted over, to hide any signs of damage to the basement wall. Now this homeowner can put their home on the market without a worry!

Musty Basement In Ablion, ME, Dried Out The Right Way

A homeowner came to TC Hafford to have their wet basement looked at. Water had been seeping into the basement on a regular basis for 40 years. This never bothered the homeowner too much, until it became a health problem. The moist air in the basement would allow for mold to grow. This mold would not only cause a nasty smell to appear, but would also cause some health concerns for the residents of the house.

With moisture in the air being the largest concern for the homeowner, they decided to go with the SaniDry XP Dehumidifier to help solve the problem. The SaniDry XP will take in the moist air surrounding it, dry it out, and push it out into the basement. Cycling other moist air back towards the SaniDry XP to continue the process. This keeps the basement air dry, and maintains it, removing the ideal air conditions for mold to grow. This homeowner no longer needs to worry about their health when it comes time to enter their basement.

Damp Crawl Space In West Gardiner, ME, Protected By CleanSpace

Todd in West Gardiner was starting to notice a buildup of water in his crawlspace. This water seemed to be seeping in through the walls/floor. Needing this issue addressed, Todd gave us a call, and we had a representative head out to take a look. After investigating, we got to work installing CleanSpace Liner. This liner will completely encapsulate the interior of the crawlspace. Floors, walls, and supports are all covered by the liner. This seals the crawlspace off from the outside elements, not allowing for further moisture to enter. Now this homeowner has a dry crawlspace that won’t be a problem again in the future.

Basement In Randolph, ME Kept Dry With SuperSump

A homeowner in Randolph was in need of a sump system. They had a drain, but they were tired of cleaning it regularly, and wanted an automatic system. After hearing about TC Hafford from a satisfied customer, they got in contact with us. We started by installing a SuperSump sump pump. This will take any water in the basement and push it up and out through a PVC pipe. Once outside the house, the water passes through a special pipe called an IceGuard. This IceGuard will allow water to escape the pipe should the lower end become blocked by ice or other forms of debris. Now this homeowner maintains a dry basement with much less upkeep.

Mount Vernon, ME Crawl space Protected By CleanSpace

Will from Mount Vernon had an issue with his crawlspace. It would gather water whenever it would rain. This issue needed a solution, and a previous customer of TC Hafford told Will about our business. His solution was found! Will got into contact with us, and arranged to have his problem solved.

Our crew got to work installing a CleanSpace Liner in the crawlspace. This is a sheet that covers the crawlspace floor, walls, and surrounds any supports inside the crawlspace. Preventing any water from leaking into the interior of the crawlsace, maintaining a dry atmosphere. Now Will no longer has to concern himself with the moisture in his crawlspace.

Crawlspace In Cornish, ME Kept Dry Using CleanSpace Liner

Molly in Cornish was experiencing trouble with her crawlspace. It would collect puddles of water whenever it would rain. This needed to be addressed as soon as possible. Soon after seeing an ad on television, Molly gave TC Hafford a call. We had a crew out in no time to get to work!

The interior perimeter of the crawlspace was covered with a Drainage Matting to prevent the water from making its way toward the center of the crawlspace. We then lined the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This is a clean sheet of plastic that encapsulates the entire crawlspace, save for the ceiling. This will lock out any and all water trying to enter the crawlspace. Though moisture still might be able to sneak into the crawlspace through other means. This is why we installed a SaniDry CX Dehumidifier. This dehumidifier will maintain a dry atmosphere within the crawlspace. Preventing any mold growth or structural damage to the house.

Flooding Basement In Edgecomb, ME Dried With WaterGuard

Jim from Edgecomb was having trouble with his drain in his basement backing up. This problem was only getting worse with time, so he got online to find a solution. Jim soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems and gave us a call. We had a representative give Jim an estimate and he made his choice as to what work he wanted done.

We got to work by digging up the interior perimeter of the basement. This cleared room for us to install a WaterGuard pipe system. WaterGuard is a special pipe that collects water as it enters the basement through either the walls or the floor. Guiding it toward the sump in the basement. After installation, the piping is covered over with cement to conceal it within the basement floor. Next, we put into place a SuperSump sump pump. This pump is fed the water collected by the WaterGuard system and pushes it up and out of the basement through PVC pipe. Finally, on the exterior of the home, we added an IceGuard to the PVC pipe. This is a unique piece of pipe that allows for the evacuated water to continue to flow even if the lower end of the pipe is blocked by ice or debris. Now this homeowner no longer needs to worry about his basement flooding.

Basement Wall In Belgrade Lakes, ME Sealed With FlexiSpan

A homeowner in Belgrade Laked was having trouble with a crack in their basement wall. The crack was allowing water to easily leak into the basement during rain, and was allowing for damage to start to occur. This needed to be prevented in any way, and after a prior customer told the homeowner about TC Hafford Basement Systems, we received the call to come out and take a look. We gave the homeowner a free estimate on the cost to fix the crack, and then got to work!

To solve this homeowner’s problem, we needed to seal the crack with FlexiSpan. We started this process by filling the crack with sealant. This sealant is then layered over with a foam matting. This adds the flexible structure to the FlexiSpan. The foam is then covered with a final layer of sealant. The finished FlexiSpan can contort and stretch to maintain its coverage over the crack should the basement wall shift in any way. Now this crack is no longer a problem for the homeowner.

Old Sump Pump In Vienna, ME Replaced With TripleSafe

A homeowner in Vienna was in need of a new sump pump. Their old sump was frequently backing up during rains, and would flood the basement several feet high. This was an immense problem for the homeowner, their basement was completely useless. They needed a way to fix this ASAP, so they took to the internet and found TC Hafford Basement Systems. We were just the solution they were seeking. After receiving the phone call, we had a representative look at the basement to find the problem and give a free estimate. We were then able to send in our crew to get to work.

The old sump was nearly useless at this point, so we used an EverLast Door to cover the old sump over. We then dug out a new sump, to emplace our TripleSafe sump pump. This pump, as its name suggests, has three separate pumps within it to guarantee functionality. The second pump is in place for when the primary pump malfunctions or can’t completely handle the current level of water. The third pump is a batter powered backup pump for the chance of any power outage within the home. This pump pushes the water outside through a PVC discharge line. Once outside the home, the water travels through a specially designed pipe called an IceGuard along the discharge line. This piece allows water to continue to exit the basement should the lower end of the pipe become blocked by ice or other debris; preventing the new TripleSafe sump pump from backing up and flooding the basement. Now this homeowner has a dry basement, and a sump capable of keeping it that way!

Belgrade Lakes, ME Basement Waterproofed With WaterGuard

Betty in Belgrade Lakes was in need of some waterproofing for her basement. Water had been gathering in her basement for months and it was time something was done about it. She contacted TC Hafford Basement Systems to get the job done, and we had a representative out to the home shortly after to take a look and give a free estimate. Betty decided on what work she wanted done and we got started on the basement!

We started by excavating the interior perimeter of the basement. This gave us room to lay down a WaterGuard pipe system. This system will capture water as it enters the basement and guide it to the sump. In the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will take the collected water and force it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Finally, on the exterior of the home, we added an IceGuard piece to the discharge line. The IceGuard is specially designed to allow water to flow even if the lower end of the line becomes blocked by ice or other debris.

WaterGuard Saves Gardiner, ME Basement From Water Damage

A homeowner in Gardiner was experiencing serious problems with water leaking into their basement during heavy rains. The water was beginning to stain the walls of the basement, and the homeowner needed a way to prevent flooding in the future. Seeing TC Hafford Basement Systems on their television, they gave us a call and we had a representative out at the home in no time to give them their free estimate. The homeowner decided on what they wanted done and we got to work!

We began by excavating the interior perimeter of the basement floor. This gave us room to lay down a WaterGuard pipe system. It was then covered over with loose rocks and cement to conceal it within the basement floor without reducing functionality. The WaterGuard pip will capture water as it enters the basement through the walls or floor and guide it toward the sump. In the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump, which will carry the collected water and push it up and out of the basement. The combination of WaterGuard and SuperSump will guarantee a dry basement for this homeowner for years to come!

Crack In Augusta, ME Basement Filled In With FlexiSpan

A homeowner in Augusta was having trouble with water leaking into their basement through a large crack in the basement wall. If this wasn’t fixed soon, the homeowner feared it may start to cause water damage if enough water built up. After seeing TC Hafford Basement Systems on their television, the homeowner gave us a call to get their free estimate on the repair cost. They chose how they wanted the crack dealt with, and we dispatched a crew to begin work on the basement.

The crack needed to be sealed in a way that would remain water tight for years, even if the wall shifted in any way; this means we needed to apply FlexiSpan to the wall. We started by filling the crack with a sealant. This is the first line of defense against water attempting to leak in through the crack. Next, we laid a foam mat over the sealant. This mat is the backbone of the FlexiSpan and gives it its flexible nature. Finally, we applied another layer of sealant over the foam to hold the structure in place. This FlexiSpan will keep out any water attempting to find its way inside the basement. This homeowner no longer needs to worry about any water damage, now that FlexiSpan is in place.

WaterGuard Saves Winthrop, ME Basement From Water Damage

A homeowner in Winthrop had a problem with water leaking into his basement through the walls and floor. This was damaging his belongings he was storing in his basement, and he needed a way to stop the water as soon as possible. The homeowner got online and searched for a way to solve this problem, soon finding TC Hafford Basement Systems and choosing us to get the job done. They gave us a call the next day and we had a representative head to the home to look at the basement and give the homeowner a free estimate on the cost of the solution. We got the green light and began work!

We started the job by digging up the inside perimeter of the basement floor. This gave us a trench to lay down our WaterGuard pipe system. This is a special pipe made to capture water as it tries to enter the basement through the walls or floor, guiding it then to the sump. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump into the sump in the basement. This is where the WaterGuard is leading the water. Once the water reaches the SuperSump, it is pushed up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. This homeowner now can sleep worry free that his belongings are dry and safe in his basement.

Flooding Basement in Waterville, ME Drained With WaterGuard

A couple in Waterville were having trouble with water leaking into their basement. This leakage was exceptionally bad in one corner. The water would pool up on the floor and leave behind a smell when it would finally dry. The homeowners searched for a way to remedy this, eventually finding TC Hafford Basement Systems while watching their TV. They called us right away and received their free estimate. After they chose what work they wanted done on their basement, we got to work!

We began by excavating the interior perimeter of the basement floor. This gave us a trench to lay our WaterGuard pipe into. This is a specially designed pipe which captures water as it tries to enter the basement through the walls or floor, via what is called hydrostatic pressure. This piping system then carries the water to the sump, where we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe is composed of three pumps. One primary pump for the bulk of the water. A secondary pump in case the primary malfunctions. Then a third, battery-backup pump for when the power goes out. The water guided to the sump is then pushed out through a PVC Discharge line. On the exterior of the home, attached to a discharge line, we added an IceGuard piece. This unique piece of pipe allows water to continue to flow from the line, even if the lower end is blocked by any debris.

With these systems in place, the water trying to enter the basement will be directed out of the basement before ever reaching the surface of the concrete floor. Now this couple can rest assured, they no longer have to deal with water collecting in their basement!

TripleSafe Protects Manchester, ME Basement From Water Damage

A couple in Manchester were experiencing a problem with water pooling up around their sump. The water wasn’t draining away like it used to. Seeking professional help, the homeowners got online and searched for their solution there. This is where they found TC Hafford Basement Systems. They called us soon after to arrange to receive their free estimate. We sent out our representative to inspect the basement and do just that. After reviewing their options, the homeowners gave us the green light and we got to work!

To give the homeowners a functioning sump, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe is composed of three pumps. The primary pump handles the bulk of the water. While the secondary pump will take on the bulk should the primary fail for any reason. The third pump is a battery backup pump, which will only switch on should the power go out. The water gathered in the TripleSafe will be pumped out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. On the outside of the home, we attached an IceGuard filter to the line. This IceGuard will allow water to continue to flow from the basement in the event that the lower end of the pipe becomes blocked by ice, or any other debris.

Now this couple can rest assure that water will no longer pool up around their sump, but will be forced out of the basement, thanks to their TripleSafe pump.

Readfield, ME Sump Upgraded With SuperSump

Susan from Readfield was experiencing difficulty with her semi-finished basement. Even though she possessed a sump, the water leaking in through the back of the basement was still causing the floor to become wet. In order to finish her basement, a wet floor needed to become a thing of the past. Susan called TC Hafford Basement Systems the next day to get the dry basement she needed.

To keep the water out of the basement, the sump needed to be upgraded from a drain to a pump, so we installed a SuperSump sump pump in the old sump. The SuperSump is able to move 2,650 gallons of water per hour out of a basement. This should be more than enough to maintain a dry floor for Susan. To keep the SuperSump functional during any weather, we attached an UltraSump backup battery to the SuperSump to keep it operating even if the power goes out. Finally, on the exterior of the home, attached to the discharge line coming from the sump, we installed an IceGuard piece to maintain a steady flow of water. The IceGuard will continue to let water out of the pipe, even if the lower end is blocked by ice or other debris.

Now Susan can finish her basement without needing to worry about water gathering on her basement floor.

Leaky Dirt Basement In China Village, ME Given Proper Vapor Barrier With CleanSpace

A homeowner in China Village owned an exceptionally old home, with a dirt basement. This basement was never given a proper vapor barrier, and would regularly become damp, or gather pools of water. The homeowner wanted to have this put to an end, and sought help online. They soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems and gave us a call. We gave the homeowner a free estimate, and then we got to work!

We began work on the basement by grading the floor, to level out the surface. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump to pump out any water gathering underneath the vapor barrier. Attached to the discharge line coming from the pump, we added an IceGuard piece on the exterior of the home. This piece is designed so that should the lower end of the pipe become blocked, the water can still escape. Next, we lined the wall/floor joint around the basement perimeter with a Drainage Matting. This matting is intended to hold the water back, allowing it time to drain back into the dirt. Finally, we encapsulated the entire space with a CleanSpace Liner. This lining is made of a thin plastic, and covers all of the walls, supports, and the floor of the basement. The CleanSpace will hold back any moisture trying to reach the center of the space, forcing it to either drain away into the soil, or gather within the sump to be pumped out.

Now with a properly installed vapor barrier, this homeowner will no longer experience any issues with water gathering within their basement.

Wet Crawlspace In East Winthrop, ME Drained Properly With SmartSump

A homeowner in East Winthrop was having trouble with water gathering within his crawlspace. This water was beginning to cause mold to grow within the space, and the homeowner wanted something done about it. After seeing an ad on television for TC Hafford Basement Systems, the homeowner called us right away! We gave them their free estimate, and then we got to work.

To help drain the water from the crawlspace, we installed a SmartSump sump pump in the floor of the crawlspace. This will take in the water, and pump it out of the space through a PVC discharge line. To remove the moisture from the air, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. Removing the moisture from the air in the crawlspace will eventually kill off the mold. This is because mold needs moisture to survive.

With these new products in place, this homeowner will no longer have any trouble with water gathering in his crawlspace.

FlexiSpan Properly Seals Leaking Vassalboro, ME Basement

With a crack in their basement wall, this Vassalboro, ME homeowner was unsure how to prevent water from leaking through the crack. Without a way to seal it themselves, they soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a family member and called us right away. After receiving their free estimate, they decided to have us take care of the problem crack.


Once our installation crew arrived at the home they began the three-step process of sealing the crack with FlexiSpan. To start, the crack was brushed clear of any debris with a coarse brush, then the first layer of sealant was applied within the crack. A foam pad is then laid over the top of the sealant. This gives the FlexiSpan the flexibility to conform to slight changes in the cracks shape. Finally, the foam is covered with a second layer of sealant, completing the FlexiSpan seal. This will keep water from leaking through the crack in the future.


Now that the crack has been sealed, no more water will leak into this homeowners basement. The FlexiSpan will make sure of that!

WaterGuard Installation Protects Hallowell, ME Basement

Even with a concrete foundation beneath their home, a hoemowner living in Hallowell, ME was still experiencing flooding in their basement during heavy rainfall. The dampness was a major problem for the homeowner and they soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a local contracor. Once they learned we could solve their basement troubles, they called us right away and we got to work!

As soon as our installation crew arrived at the home they we able to begin work on the basement. With water entering directly through the concrete, a system needed to prevent this from happening. They began by excavating a shallow trench into the perimeter of the floor. Inside, WaterGuard piping was laid and covered with a fresh coat of concrete. These pipes will intercept and trap any moisture leaking in through the concrete in the future. This water then travels through the pipes to the sump where we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This device will force the collected water up and out of the home through a PVC discharge line. The SuperSump us able to remove up to 2,650 gallons of water from the home every hour.

With their WaterGuard piping and SuperSump pump working together, this homeowner will no longer suffer from a flooding basement during any rainfall.

SaniDry Installation Helps Keep East Vassalboro, ME Basement Dry

A homeowner living in East Vassalbor, ME had a rather damp basement. The space always seemed to have very damp air and a musty smell.

They called us for a free estimate and decided they wanted to have us get the job done for them.


Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they got to work installing a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. This device will pull in the surrounding moist air and separate the water from it. The dried air is circulated back into the basement to cycle more damp air closer to the SaniDry and continue the process. Any collected water is passed to the Condensate Pump to be removed from the home. This pump sends the water up and out of the basement through a discharge line. The water exits onto the lawn outside where it will drain away into the ground hamrlessly.

WaterGuard & FlexiSpan Installations Protect Belgrade, ME Basement from Flooding

A homeowner living in Belgrade, ME was having difficulties keeping their basement free of water. They had a sump pump, but the trouble was water gathering on the floor away from the pump. Looking to put an end to this flooding, the homeowner sought an answer online. They soon found us at TC Hafford and called us right away to receive their free estimate. After they heard what we could do for them they gave us the go-ahead to start work.


When our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work on installing a WaterGuard piping system. Before the pipes could be laid, a shallow trench was excavated into the perimeter of the basement floor. The WaterGuard pipes were then laid down beneath the surface of the floor and buried beneath a fresh layer of concrete. These pipes, connected directly into the sump pump, will capture any moisture leaking in through the concrete foundation. This will keep any leaks from reaching the surface of this basement floor in the future.


Next, a crack along one of the concrete walls needed to be sealed, as it was also a point where water had been leaking into this basement. To put an end to these leaks, a FlexiSpan seal would be used. This began with a primary layer of sealant being applied within and around the crack. This was then covered by a foam mat, running the length of the crack. Finally, a second layer of sealant was used to complete the FlexiSpan strcuture over the crack. This new seal will be able to shift and contort slightly to any shifting of the crack, maintaining a water-tight seal.


Thanks to these new improvements, this homeowner should no longer experience any troubles with water leaking into their basement. The WaterGuard piping will take care of any problem before they rise above the surface of the floor.

WaterGuard Piping Maintains Dry Farmingdale, ME Basement

When a homeowner in Farmingdale, ME had became tired of living with a constantly damp basement floor, they sought a solution to keep the space dry. They soon heard about TC Hafford from a family member and called us to get a free estimate done on their basement. Once the estimate was finished, they decided they wanted the work done and our crew got to work.


Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they began this waterproofing with the installation of WaterGuard piping. To begin, a trench was dug into the concrete floor, around the perimeter. This is where the new WaterGuard piping was laid, before being buried beneath a fresh layer of concrete. Now inside the floor, these pipes will take in any leaking moisture through slits at the base of each pipe. The trapped water is guided through the floor to the sump where it will be removed.


Within the sump, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump for the WaterGuard to feed directly into. This device houses three individual pumps. The primary and secondary pumps are responsible for removing the bulk of the water needing to be pumped out of the home, with the secondary pump only activating if the primary pump cannot handle the water-level alone. The third pump is a battery backup pump, for when the home loses power. This will ensure the basement remains dry no matter how heavy the storm.


The water leaves the basement through a PVC discharge line. Outside the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe segment just beyond where this line exits the home. This pipe segment has special holes built-in which allow for trapped water to escape. This will protect he basement from ice in the line causing any backups. Finally, a LawnScape discharge port was attached to the end of the line. This piece has a grate over the end, allowing the water to escape while keeping out any debris thay may block the line.


With their new waterproofing complete, this homeowner can rest assured their basement will stay dry, even during heavy rainfall. The WaterGuard will guide any leaking moisture straight to the sump before it reaches the surface of the floor and becomes a problem.

Sump Upgrade Keeps Manchester, ME Basement Water-Free

A SuperSump pump was installed in the floor of the basement, which will handle the removal of any water. This pump can output water at a rate of 2,650 gallons per hour, plenty of power to keep any rainfall at bay. Nearby, an UltraSump was installed and connected to the SuperSump. The UltraSump is a battery that will activate during power-outages to maintain a dry basement even in harsh conditions. The water collected within the SuperSump follows a PVC discharge line up and out of the home where it is deposited on the ground a distance from the home.


Now that they have a waterproofing system in place, this homeowner can now make use of their basement without needing to fear water damage. However heavy the rain, the SuperSump will prevent this baseemnt from flooding for years to come.

When our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work on the space right away by laying a Drainage Matting across the floor of the space. This mat has holes throughout it to allow any moisture build-up within the barrier to flow out through the ground below. Next, the space was encapsulated with a CleanSpace liner. Completing the vapor barrier, this CleanSpace liner will now stop any outside moisture before it is able to reach the interior of this crawlspace, where it would worsen any mold problems. Finally, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed within the crawlspace interior.

After a short amount of time, they searched online for a solution and found us at TC Hafford Basement Systems. The homeowners called us to receive their free estimate right away. Once they spoke with our representative they hired us to get the job done!


As soon as our installation crew arrived at the property, they began work on waterproofing this basement. To keep water from leaking through the floor, a WaterGuard piping system would be buried beneath the perimeter of the floors surface. Once a trench was dug and the pipes were in place, they were sealed in the floor by loose rocks and concrete. Here, the WaterGuard will absorb leaking moisture through slits along its bottom edge. This water is then guided to the SuperSump sump pump we installed in the basement floor. This pump will then force the water up and out of the home without the water ever reaching the floors surface.


Outside the home, two attachments were added to the discharge line that carried the water away from the home. The first was an IceGuard pipe segment. This piece, attached just beyond where the line exits the home, has special holes built-in that only allow blocked water to escape. This protects the basement from flooding if ice were to block the discharge line. Finally, a LawnScape discharge port was used to cap the end of the line. This piece will blend the end of the port into the lawn while the grate will keep out debris. The less debris in the discharge line, the less chances for blockages to form.


Now that this couple has a properly waterproofed basement, they can finally make use of the space without the fear of water damage. The WaterGuard will keep this basement free of water for many years to come!

I have a crack in the side wall where water is coming in. A couple years ago I did a temporary fix...
