A homeowner in Warren had a crawlspace with a sand floor. This was a problem for the homeowner, because water was easily entering the crawlspace, and causing mold to grow. The homeowner took to the internet to find a solution. TC Hafford soon received a call. We took a look at the crawlspace, and got to work!
We started by placing down a drainage matting on the floor. This acts as a primary barrier from water, and will allow any water entering the crawlspace to flow back out through the floor. Then the entire crawlspace got encapsulated by our team, using CleanSpace Liner. This liner fits tight against the walls and floor of the crawlspace. It seals out any water trying to sneak into the crawlspace. Now this homeowner no longer needs to worry about water or mold in their crawlspace.
A homeowner in Rockport had a crawlspace that was rather smelly. This was becoming an issue for the homeowner. They had no intention of finishing the space, or using it for storage, but they wanted something done about the smell. After hearing about us from a contractor, they gave TC Hafford a call. We had a representative go out and take a look, and then we got to work!
We started by laying down a drainage matting, to allow any accumulated water to exit the crawlspace without getting trapped. The entire crawlspace was then lined with CleanSpace Liner. This is a white film that will lock out any moisture trying to enter the crawlspace. Thus reducing the amount of moisture getting into the air. Finally we installed a SaniDry XP Dehumidifier. This will completely eliminate any moisture that might make its way into the crawlspace. Removing all moisture from the air will destroy any environment that would allow mold to grow, getting rid of the smell that was causing the homeowner problems.
A homeowner in Thomaston was noticing water collecting on their basement floor. This water was obviously entering through two rather thin cracks that spanned the length of his basement walls. These cracks needed to be addressed, and the homeowner got online to find a solution. After finding TC Hafford Basement Systems, the homeowner gave us a call to receive a free estimate. We had a representative head out to take a look. The course of action we agreed upon with the homeowner was FlexiSpan, which could permanently seal the cracks. We started this process by filling the two cracks with a sealant. This first layer of sealant acts as a primary guard for keeping out water. Then a layer of foam padding is placed over the two cracks, to hold the first layer in place. This foam also acts as structural support for the repair. Finally a second layer of sealant is added on top of the foam to hold it all in place. The way this FlexiSpan works is that it locks out water, but is still flexible enough to shift, should the walls move under ny circumstance. Now this homeowner no longer needs to worry about water coming in through these two cracks!
A homeowner in Hope noticed their basement was starting to develop a harsh musty smell. This was certainly due to mold growth from moisture in the air. This problem is not only inconvenient because of the smell, but could also pose a serious health risk if left unchecked. After having a contractor refer TC Hafford, the homeowner gave us a call.
We soon had a representative out at the home to inspect the basement and suggest the best course of action. After reviewing with the homeowner, the solution we went with was installing a SaniDry XP Dehumidifier. This will keep the air in the basement dry, eliminating the environment necessary for mold growth. Now this homeowner has a mold free basement with dry air.
A homeowner in South Thomaston was noticing the window in their crawlspace was allowing water to leak in. This was an older window, and had clearly seen some better years. The homeowner needed this leaky window fixed, and they also would prefer if their crawlspace was completely water-tight. After a quick internet search, they came across TC Hafford Basement Systems; the clear choice for this job. Shortly after we received the phone call, we had a representative out at the house to determine the best solution. After going over the options with the homeowner, we sent in a crew to get to work!
To start the project, the window in the crawlspace was removed. Both it and another old window were taken out to be replaced. Then the crew installed two EverLast windows where the old windows were. EverLast windows are bright, and form a completely waterproof seal inside their frame. Protecting the crawlspace from the problem which faced the previous set of windows. Then the crawlspace was encapsulated with a CleanSpace Liner. This is a plastic sort of sheet which covers the walls, floors, and supports of the crawlspace to lock out any moisture entering through the surrounding soil. Now this homeowner has two new windows and a waterproof crawlspace!
Donna in Owls Head had a problem. Her problem was that the crawlspace underneath her house would flood whenever it would rain. This lead to several issues, most importantly, mold and rot. These could lead to both health concerns for Donna, and damage to the house. These being pretty serious issues, Donna searched online to find a way to fix her problem fast. TC Hafford was the answer to her problem, and Donna contacted us. We had a representative head out to take a look and give a free estimate. Then got to work!'
We started by lining the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This sheet covers the entire crawlspace, except for the ceiling. Sealing tightly against the walls/floor, this liner locks out water, keeping the crawlspace free of outside moisture. Then we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier to maintain the air quality of the crawlspace. This way even if moisture should make its way in, it won’t stay long enough to allow for mold growth. Now Donna sleeps easy at night, not needing to worry about her crawlspace.
A homeowner with a finished basement in Washington was noticing a musty smell starting to appear. This wouldn’t do, so Valerie searched online for a way to remedy this. After finding TC Hafford Basement Systems, Valerie knew she had found her solution. She contacted us and we got to work! After taking a look at the basement, the fix was clear, she needed a SaniDry XP. This is a dehumidifier which will suck in the moist air, take out the moisture, and push the dry air out into the basement. This creates a cycle of dry air pushing moist air closer to the SaniDry, allowing for more and more air to be dehumidified. Now Valerie no longer struggles with a musty basement.
A homeowner in Tenants Harbor was having a problem with water getting into their basement. This would soon lead to mold growth or structural damage to the house. The homeowner needed a solution, and took to google to find an answer. This is where the homeowner found TC Hafford Basemenst Systems. After receiving the call, we got to work! We inspected the crawlspace, then decided it was best to install a CleanSpace Liner. This liner will completely lock out moisture trying to enter through the walls or floor of the crawlspace. Preventing any mold growth inside the crawlspace in the future. Now this homeowner is worry free!
A homeowner in Vinalhaven was looking to finish their basement. But before they started that, they wanted to make sure their crawlspace would no longer get water during rain. After the homeowner heard about TC Hafford from a friend, he gave us a call and we got to work!
In order to waterproof the crawlspace in the home, we had to put down a Drainage Matting around the inside perimeter of the crawlspace. This would prevent water coming in from making its way toward the center of the crawlspace, while giving it time to drain back out of the crawlspace. We then lined the inside of the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This completely seals the crawlspace off from incoming moisture, guaranteeing a dry crawlspace for the homeowner. Now he can finish his basement without fear of water damage!
A homeowner in Friendship, ME needed to get her basement and crawlspace waterproofed before she could finish her basement. This would be a rather large undertaking. After a friend told her about TC Hafford Basement Systems, she made a call to set up a meeting. After meeting with one of our representatives and receiving an estimate, she chose what work she wanted done. We dispatched our crew to the house and got to work!
We started with the crawlspace, lining the inside perimeter with a Drainage Matting. This is then covered with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner covers the entire crawlspace, save for the ceiling. Locking out all moisture that might otherwise has leaked into the crawlspace. Next, we excavated the interior perimeter of the basement to allow for the installation of a WaterGuard system. This system collects water as it enters the basement through the walls or floor. Guiding it toward the sump location. This WaterGuard system is then covered over with a fresh layer of cement to hide it within the basement floor. We capped off the WaterGuard pipes with a SmartSump sump pump to remove the water from the basement. Following the PVC discharge pipe out of the basement, we attached an IceGuard on the outside of the home. This is a special piece of pipe on a discharge line that will allow the evacuated water to continue to flow should the lower portion of the pipe become blocked by ice or debris. Finally, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This will guarantee the homeowner maintains a dry basement even if moisture makes it into the air.
A homeowner in Spruce Head was experiencing problems with their sump pump. It would back-up during exceptionally heavy rains, and flood parts of the basement. Needing this to stop before any serious water damage occurred, the homeowner contacted TC Hafford Basement Systems. We gave the homeowner their free estimate, and then we got to work on waterproofing their basement.
The existing sump pump needed to be removed to start the job. It was no longer needed, because it was being replaced. We then installed a SmartSump sump pump in the sump. This will now pump out all of the water gathering within the basement without issue. Attached to this SmartSump, we installed an UltraSump backup battery in case of a power outage during a rain storm. Finally, on the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard filter onto the PVC discharge line coming from the sump. This filter will allow water to flow from the line even if the lower end of the pipe becomes blocked by ice or other debris. Now this homeowner is worry free, with a dry basement!
A homeowner in North Haven was beginning to notice a musty smell coming from their crawlspace. This was an obvious sign of moisture gathering in the basement, and the homeowner searched for a way to prevent moisture build up. They soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a satisfied previous customer, who recommended us to get the job done. The homeowner called us shortly after to arrange an inspection of their crawlspace. We had a representative take a look at the crawlspace and give the homeowner a free estimate of the cost to eliminate the moisture. The homeowner gave us the green light and we got started!
To begin work, we lined the interior wall/floor joint with a Drainage Matting to hold water back from reaching the center of the crawlspace. This allowed time for the water to drain before it would enter the air. We then encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner, which would completely lock out any moisture attempting to leak into the crawlspace through the walls or floor. This will keep the crawlspace dry and eliminate the musty smell once and for all!
A homeowner in Port Clyde was having serious trouble with water gathering in their crawlspace. They needed this addressed professionally and took to the internet to find a solution. They soon came across TC Hafford Basement Systems and decided we were the right company to get the job done. They called us the next day and we had a representative head over to give them their free estimate. The homeowner gave us the green light and we got started!
We began work in the crawlspace by installing a SuperSump sump pump in the floor where the water would gather, this would then take the water and push it up and out of the crawlspace. Next, we laid a Drainage Matting around the inside perimeter of the crawlspace to hold back moisture coming in through the walls and allowing it time to drain back out into the surrounding soil. The crawlspace was then encapsulated with a CleanSpace Liner and sealed off from moisture trying to enter. This will eliminate the issue of water pooling up inside the crawlspace for a very long time. Finally, to maintain a dry atmosphere within the crawlspace, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. Which will cycle the air and remove any moisture, keeping the crawlspace completely moisture free!
A homeowner in Rockland was looking for a way to clear his crawlspace of water. It would almost always have water gathered in two of the corners. Especially during spring. Fearing the water would damage the structure of the house, the homeowner searched for a solution. He soon came across TC Hafford Basement Systems online and called us to receive his free estimate. We had a representative at the home in now time for the inspection. After the homeowner chose what work they wanted done we were able to start working!
We began by digging out a sump, and installing a SmartSump sump pump. This will take any water gathered in the crawlspace and evacuate it through a PVC discharge line. We then lined the interior wall/floor joint with a Drainage Matting. This mat will hold back water coming in through this joint, allowing it time to drain away before making its way to the interior of the crawlspace. Next, we encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This locks out any moisture trying to enter through the walls or floor of the crawlspace. Forcing it all to either drain back away naturally or through the sump. Finally, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This dehumidifier will take the leftover moisture, and any future moisture out of the air, creating and maintaining a dry and healthy atmosphere.
With these systems in place, the interior of this homeowner’s crawlspace will remain dry for many years to come. He no longer has to fear water damage!
A homeowner in Camden was had a basement that would regularly gather water during heavy rains. After dealing with this problem for years, the homeowner decided it was time to put an end to it. They got online to find a solution, and quickly found TC Hafford Basement Systems. Knowing we were the right company for the job, the homeowner called us right away to set up a meeting. We had our representative sent to the home to inspect the basement and give the homeowner a free estimate. They chose what work they wanted and we sent in our crew to get started.
We began by digging up the inside perimeter of the basement floor to allow us to lay down our WaterGuard pipe system. This system was then covered over with loose rocks and cement to conceal it beneath the floor without hindering functionality. The WaterGuard will capture water as it enters through the walls or floor, guiding it to the sump. There in the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump, to push the water up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Finally, on the exterior of the home we attached an IceGuard filter to the line. This special pipe will allow for continued flow of water even if the end of the pipe becomes blocked by ice or other debris.
With these systems working together, this homeowner will no longer need to deal with a wet basement floor. They will now have a dry basement for many years to come!
