A homeowner in Waldoboro had a basement which would regularly get wet whenever it rained. Even though this homeowner had a sump pump to remove the water from his basement, he had to way to guarantee the water would reach the sump. This allowed for the water to build up and dampen roughly a quarter of his basement. The homeowner thought this was no good, so once he saw an ad for TC Hafford Basement Systems on the TV, he gave us a call.
After the homeowner decided what he wanted done to help fix his problem, our crew got to work. The first thing we did was dig out the perimeter of the homeowner’s basement. This would allow for the placement of a WaterGuard system, to reroute any water trying to enter the basement through the walls, or up from the ground. This rerouting would lead the water to the newly installed SuperSump sump pump. This pump takes the water and pushes it up and out of the basement, keeping the floors and air of the basement dry. The water is then passed through an IceGuard filter once outside the house. This filter acts as a normal pipe when everything is functioning normally. But once the pipe gets blocked, be it by ice or other debris, the IceGuard will allow water to exit the pipe and prevent the whole system from backing up. This homeowner now has a 100% dry basement.
A customer in Bristol contacted us one day to get more work done. We had previously installed a sump system in his basement, but he was looking for a more encompassing system. This homeowner wanted a WaterGuard system. We got to work by digging out the perimeter of the basement. This trench was where the WaterGuard piping would go. Once the perimeter was fully removed, we inserted the WaterGuard and poured fresh cement over it to lock it into place. This piping will catch water as it comes into the basement through either the walls or the floors. We then installed a second sump pump, a SuperSump. This was to ensure any water entering the basement was caught by the WaterGuard, and then promptly pumped out by one of the two pumps. This homeowner will never need to worry about a wet basement again!
A homeowner in Jefferson was experiencing trouble with their basement getting wet; even though they had a sump system installed. They were planning on finishing their basement, but wanted this water problem dealt with before hand. After a quick online search, they came to TC Hafford to get the job done.
We started the fix by digging up the interior perimeter of their basement. This enabled us to install our WaterGuard system to capture the water as it comes through the walls or floors. This water exits through the sump system already installed. We finished this basement off with a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This homeowner now has a properly waterproofed basement.
A homeowner in Boothbay Harbor was having troubles with their crawalspace gathering water. This needed to be addressed. Because they had done business with TC Hafford before and were satisfied with the job done; they came to us to take care of their crawlspace problem.
Once on the job, our crew got to work installing a CleanSpace Liner. This liner completely encapsulates the crawlspace, sealing it off from the outside. The seal locks out all moisture trying to enter the crawlspace, keeping it dry for future use.
A homeowner in Dresden had a crawlspace liner with CleanSpace, that they’d gotten from TC Hafford several years ago. This liner, however, got ripped up when a contractor had to do work in the crawlspace. After the liner lost its functionality, the homeowner contacted us to get the crawlspace waterproofed a second time. We had a crew head out to install the CleanSpace Liner. This liner encapsulates the entire crawlspace, locking any moisture entering through the walls or floor between the liner and the entry location. Preventing this moisture from reaching the interior of the crawlspace.
A homeowner in Nobleboro contacted TC Hafford with an excessively moist basement air problem. This was already leading to mold growth and a nasty smell. The mold growing in the basement could lead to health concerns for the residents of the home, so this issue was a high priority. We had a crew out shortly after being contacted to get to work. We started by installing a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This will start to get the job done of clearing the basement air of moisture. But this wasn’t quite enough. We then installed a second dehumidifier, a SaniDry XP. This way the basement air is guaranteed to not only dry out, but stay dry. Killing off the mold, by removing the proper living conditions, and returning the basement to its former glory.
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.
A homeowner in Bremen was looking to finish their basement, but water would leak in through the floors of both the basement and the attached crawlspace. This was a problem that needed to be addressed before any progress could be made in finishing the basement. After the homeowner saw an ad for TC Hafford Basement Systems on their television, they knew they found the solution to their problem. They gave us a call and we got to work!
We got to work by first taking care of the wet crawlspace. We covered the interior perimeter of the crawlspace with a Drainage Matting. This will hold any water back from the interior of the crawlspace. We then encapsulated the entire crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner will lock out any moisture from entering the crawlspace by covering the entirety of the walls and floor. The final step of the waterproofing process was laying down ThermalDry Flooring tiles on the basement floor. These are insulated tiles which will keep the water from reaching the surface; as well as maintaining a relatively warm floor temperature compared to that of a concrete floor. Now this homeowner can finish their basement without concern for water damage!
A homeowner from Alna was having trouble with water finding its way into their basement. They had a sump in place, but it wasn’t doing a good enough job removing the water. Needing something done about this, the homeowner got online and searched for a solution. TC Hafford Basement Systems was the exact answer they were looking for! They gave us a call and we had a crew at the home to begin work shortly after.
We started by digging up the interior perimeter of the basement floor. This gave us a trench to lay a WaterGuard system in. This WaterGuard will gather water as it enters through the walls or floor of the basement. We covered the WaterGuard with loose rocks, and then cement to conceal it below the floor without reducing the functionality. We installed a SmartSump sump pump in the old sump. This will take the water from the WaterGuard and push it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Now this homeowner has a working sump and no longer needs to worry about potential water damage.
A homeowner in Southport was having mold problem in their basement. This was caused by a moisture build up in the air, and required professional work done. They saw an ad one their television for TC Hafford Basement Systems and contacted us right after. We had a representative sent to the house to give a free estimate, then we were able to start working!
We started by installing a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will take water from the basement, and push it up and out of the home. Then we attached an UltraSump backup battery to the SuperSump to maintain water evacuation even when the power is out. Next, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier, which will maintain a dry atmosphere within the basement, and destroy the chance for any mold to find a place to live. Finally, we attached an IceGuard filter on the exterior of the home to the discharge line. This will ensure the water exits the basement even if the lower end of the discharge line becomes blocked by ice or other debris. Now this homeowner is worry free with a dry basement!
A homeowner in Pemquid was in dire need of some basement waterproofing. He would frequently gather pools of water in his basement during rain, and this needed to end. Not long after the homeowner made the decision to fix their basement, they saw an ad on their Television for TC Hafford Basement Systems, and knew we were the ones for the job! They contacted us, received a free estimate, and we got to work.
We started by digging a trench into the cement floor around the inside perimeter of the basement. This allowed us to lay down a WaterGuard piping system. This system will collect the water as it enters the basement and guide it to the sump. In the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump to pump the water up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. This combination will maintain a dry basement, even in the heaviest rains. Making water damage a thing of the past for this homeowner!
A homeowner in Monhegan was living with an unpleasant smell coming from his crawlspace for years. This problem started because of an improperly built moisture barrier. The homeowner needed a way to fix this without digging up the area surrounding his crawlspace, so he got online and looked around. He soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems and gave us a call. We sent a representative to the home to look at the crawlspace and give a free estimate. The homeowner decided on which solution they wanted, and our crew got to work!
To start, we laid a Drainage Matting around the interior perimeter of the crawlspace. This prevents the water coming in from finding its way to the center of the crawlspace where it can cause damage or start to smell. Next, we covered the crawlspace walls and floor with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner holds back any moisture trying to enter the crawlspace through the walls or floor. Finally, we installed a SaniDry CX Dehumidifier. This will maintain a completely dry atmosphere within the crawlspace, even if a small amount of moisture were to make it into the air. Now, with a dry crawlspace, this homeowner no longer has a smell bothering him!
A homeowner in South Bristol was having trouble with a leaky crawlspace. Water would regularly come in through the far corner, and flood the rest of the space. The homeowner was in desperate need of a way to fix this problem. She soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems online and got in contact with us as soon as she could! We had a representative take a look at the crawlspace, give a free estimate, and then we got to work! To solve the homeowner’s problem, we encapsulated the entire crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This will hold back any and all moisture trying to seep into the interior of the crawlspace. Now this homeowner’s problems are a thing of the past!
Tom from East Boothbay was in the market for some crawlspace encapsulation. He was searching for the right company to get the job done. Tom wanted it to be done right the first time, without the need to have it redone shortly down the road. After seeing TC Hafford Basement Systems in the newspaper, he did a little research and knew we were the right company for the job! We received the call and had a representative at the home to give Tom a free estimate. He decided on what work he wanted done on his crawlspace and we got started.
We began work by laying down a Drainage Matting around the inside perimeter of the crawlspace. This acts as the primary barrier against moisture entering the crawlspace around the wall/floor joint. We then covered the entire crawlspace, save for the ceiling, with a CleanSpace liner. This liner locks out any moisture attempting to enter through the walls or floor, maintaining a dry atmosphere. To ensure any remaining moisture in the air is removed properly, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier in the crawlspace. Now Tom has a dry crawlspace and no need to worry about potential moisture damage for years to come!
A homeowner in New Harbor would frequently have their basement flood whenever it would rain. This was causing problems, such a water damage and a musty smell. Requiring assistance in resolving this issue, the homeowner searched for a solution. After finding an ad for TC Hafford Basement Systems in their newspaper, the homeowner contacted us. We gave them a free estimate, and started work on their basement once the decided on what they wanted done!
To start work on the basement, we excavated the interior perimeter of the basement. This opened up a trench for us to lay down a WaterGuard piping system. The WaterGuard is then covered over with loose rocks and cement. This seals it within the floor, without hurting its functionality. This pipe system captures water as it enters the basement through the walls and the floor, guiding it to the sump. In the sump, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This device has three separate pumps, one primary pump, one backup pump in case the primary fails, and a third, battery operated pump in case of a power outage. Following the sump discharge line to the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard onto the line. This is a special piece of pipe that allows for water to continue to be pumped out of the basement even if the lower end of the pipe becomes blocked by ice or other debris. Finally, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. This will guarantee a dry atmosphere within the basement, should any moisture find its way inside. Now this homeowner is worry free, even during the heaviest of rains.
Richard from East Boothbay Harbor was in need of a vapor barrier for his crawlspace. Moisture was finding its way inside the crawlspace, which could lead to possible water damage. Looking for ways to get a proper vapor barrier, Richard soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a previously satisfied customer and got in contact with us. We had a representative take a look at the property and give a free estimate. We then sent in our crew to start work on the crawlspace.
The crawlspace was first lined with a Drainage Matting around the floor/wall joint. The mat will hold back moisture, allowing it to drain back into the surrounding soil. This is the first layer of the vapor barrier. We then encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This is a plastic sheet that will lock out moisture, not allowing it into the interior of the crawlspace. Now with the moisture being held back, the crawlspace will remain dry for many years to come. Richard now has a fully functional vapor barrier, thanks to CleanSpace!
A homeowner in Boothbay had been having trouble with the pump in their sump. Water was flooding their basement, and their pump wasn’t helping to remove any of it. Seeking a way to replace their pump, they contacted TC Hafford Basement Systems. We had a representative give the homeowners a free estimate on the cost to replace it, and then we got to work!
We began by removing the old sump pump. This was disposed of properly, to make room for a brand-new sump. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump in the basement. This will surely handle any amount of water trying to flood the basement. The SuperSump can handle 2,650 gallons of water per hour. No water would ever build up within this space again. The water is evacuated through a PVC discharge line, which we attached an IceGuard filter to on the exterior of the home. This filter will allow water to continue to flow from the pipe, even if the lower end of the pipe is blocked by debris. This homeowner’s basement will now remain dry, even in the heaviest rains.
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!
A homeowner in Damariscotta owned a home with a leaky basement. This basement would take on water during any amount of rain. The homeowner needed a way to stop this before any damage occured within the basement. They soon got online and after a quick Google search, found TC Hafford Basement Systems. We set them up with a free estimate, and after they gave us the go ahead, we got to work!
The interior perimeter of the basement floor was excavated to begin the project. This newly dug trench allowed us to emplace our WaterGuard system within the floor. The WaterGuard was then covered over with loose rocks and cement to conceal it without preventing its function. Made of specially designed pipes, this system will capture water as it tries to find its way into the interior of the space. The collected water is brought along through the WaterGuard to the sump. In the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump to take all of the water and evacuate it from the basement through a PVC discharge line. Finally, on the exterior of the home, we connected an IceGuard to the discharge line. This will allow water to continue to flow from the pump even when the lower end of the pipe is blocked by debris of any kind.
Now this homeowner can be proud to have a properly waterproofed basement!
A homeowner in Newcastle had a basement that had been leaking more and more over the years. After 15 years of owning the home, the basement was allowing enough water in through the foundation that the basement would flood during heavy rain. Seeking a way to stop this, the homeowner contacted TC Hafford Basement Systems. We inspected the basement and then we got to work!
The interior perimeter of the floor was first excavated to allow us to lay down our WaterGuard pipe system beneath the floor. This was then covered with loose rocks and cement to conceal it without hurting function. The WaterGuard captures water as it enters the basement, guiding it to the sump to be evacuated. Next, we installed a SuperSump sump pump in the basement floor. This pump will move all of the water up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. In order to keep the pump operating in any weather, we attached an UltraSump backup battery to the SuperSump. Finally, on the exterior of the home, we added an IceGuard pipe piece to the discharge line. This will maintain a constant flow of water even if the lower end of the line becomes blocked.
With these new additions to their basement, this homeowner will no longer have any leaks during heavy rains, or during any kind of weather!
A homeowner in Walpole had an exceptionally moist crawlspace. The moisture content was high enough to enable mold to grow within the space, creating an unhealthy atmosphere. Needing the moisture kept out, the homeowner got online and searched for a solution. They soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems, and upon receiving their free estimate, hired us to get the job done!
To hold moisture back, we lined the wall/floor joint of the crawlspace with a Drainage Matting. This will allow the moisture to drain back into the surrounding soil before reaching the center of the space. We then encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner is made of a thin plastic, and will completely lock out any moisture that would have otherwise found its way into the space. Finally, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier in the crawlspace. This dehumidifier will take all of the moisture from the air, and pump the dry air back into the space.
With these sheets laid, and the dehumidifier removing moisture, the mold will die off, leaving behind a dry, healthy crawlspace.
A couple in West Boothbay Harbor were in a bit of a tough spot. They had a crawlspace that would gather large amounts of moisture, and no way to get rid of it. This moisture could easily lead to mold growth, and potentially health concerns for the homeowners. They called up TC Hafford Basement Systems right away to solve their problem, and we sent out our crew to get to work!
To ensure water would no longer gather on the surfaces within the space, we needed to install a vapor barrier within the crawlspace. We encapsulated the space with a CleanSpace Liner. This covered all the walls, supports, and the floor of the crawlspace. The liner is made of a thin plastic, which the moisture cannot pass through. This will maintain a dry atmosphere within the crawlspace by not allowing the moisture in to begin with!
With their new vapor barrier in place, this couple can rest assured no mold will be growing in their crawlspace.
Eric from Chamberlain was having trouble with a certain crack in his basement wall. It spanned from ceiling to floor, and was allowing water to enter in through it. Seeking to have this crack sealed, the homeowner asked around for potential solutions. He soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems and called us right away! We set him up with a free estimate, and then we got to work sealing the crack.
To hold out any moisture, while still staying in place, we needed to apply FlexiSpan to the crack. To begin, we filled the crack with a primary layer of sealant. This would act as the first line of defense against moisture, but wouldn’t quite be enough on its own. We then laid a foam matting over the top of the sealant, to act as a backbone for the structure, giving it its flexibility, while also holding it all together. Finally, we applied another layer of sealant over the foam matting. This finished the FlexiSpan. These layers working together will not only shift and contort to stay in place on top of the crack, but they will hold back any moisture that would have otherwise found its way through the crack.
Now Eric will no longer be caused any trouble by this large crack in his wall.
A homeowner from Wiscasset, ME had been living with a wet basement for some time. Wanting to use the space, they needed a way to keep the basement dry. The homeowner searched online for a solution and soon found us at TC Hafford Basement Systems. They called us for their free estimate and we dispatched our crew to get the job done!
Once our installation crew got to the home, they began by installing a TripleSafe sump pump in the floor of the basement. This device houses three pumps within itself. The first and second pumps handle the majority of the water needing to be removed. The third pump is a battery backup pump, which will switch on in the event of a power-outage. A SaniDry XP dehumidifier was also installed nearby. The SaniDry will pull in the damp air from around the basement, separating the moisture from it. The dried air is circulated back into the basement while the collected water is passed to the TripleSafe for removal.
The water exits the basement through a PVC discharge line, where it travels up and out of the home. Just outside, an IceGuard pipe segment is attached to the line, to protects against ice blocking the line. If a blockage occurs, the water can escape through the angled holes in the IceGuard before backing up and flooding the basement. Lastly, a LawnScape pipe cap was added to the end of the line to allow the water to exit and drain onto the ground.
With their new sump system in place, this homeowner should now be able to utilize the sapce in their basement without fearing water damage! The TripleSafe sump pump and SaniDry dehumidifier will make sure of that.
A homeowner living in Whitefield, ME had a problem in their garage. After years of use, the concrete floor of the garage had begun to sink into the ground, causing a lip to form between the garage and the driveway. This wasn't a big deal at first, but as the lip grew, it became a problem. The homeowner called us at TC Hafford after seeing an ad on their TV for our services. They heard what their options were during their free estimate and they hired us to get the job done!
When our installation crew arrived at the home, they were able to start work right away on the garage. To realign the slab that had fallen out of place, PolyLevel would be used. This began with small holes being drilled in through the slab, to the ground below. Next, PolyLevel was injected into these holes, where it will rapidly expand once it comes into contact with air below the slab. This pushes up on the floor until the slab is returned to its original position. The PolyLevel will now hold the garage floor in place for years to come.
Now this homeowner can utilize their garage again without the large bump from the slab to the driveway, thanks to the PolyLevel injection.
This Newcastle, ME homeowner was in need of some crawlspace waterproofing. Lately, water had been leaking into their crawlspace and causing the air to become very damp. This moisture build-up would soon lead to a mold problem if it wasn't dealt with properly. After a quick search online for an answer to their problem, the homeowner found us at TC Hafford Basement Systems. They soon called us to receive their free estimate and we got to work!
When our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work on giving the crawlspace a vapor barrier to keep out moisture. This began with a Drainage Matting being laid across the floor of the crawlspace. This porous mat sits just off the surface of the floor, allowing water blocked by the vapor barrier to flow and find a place to drain back into the ground below. Next, a CleanSpace liner was used to encapsulate the interior surfaces of the crawlspace. This liner completely locks out moisture, collecting any leakages and directing them below the Drainage Matting to flow out of the crawlspace.
Now that this homeowner has a vapor barrier in place, their crawlspace should stay mold free for the forseeable future. The CleanSpace encapsulation will make sure of that!
When this homeowner living in Nobleboro, ME was having trouble with water gathering across their basement floor, they needed a solution before their property suffered any damage. There was a sump in the floor for the water to escape through, but with how much water was entering the space, the water would build up and flood the space before draining away. To solve their moisture problem, they searched online for a solution. The homeowner soon discovered TC Hafford Basement Systems and called us immediately to set up an appointment for a free estimate.
After they hired us to get the job done, our installetion crew was dispatched to the home to get started. To help remove water from the basement before it has a chance to accumulate, a TripleSafe sump pump was installed in the existing sump. The TripleSafe houses three pumps within itself, each serving a purpose. The primary and secondary pumps will handle the majority of the water needing removal, with the secondary pump activating only when the primary cannot keep up with the water-level. The third pump is a battery-operated pump which will activate when the home loses power. This will ensure the basement remains dry even during storms harsh enough the knock out the power. The collected water is forced up and out of the home through a PVC discahrge line.
With this new sump system in place, this homeowner will no longer go downstair during a rainstorm to find their basement with a layer of water across the floor. The TripleSafe sump pump will keep this basement dry for years to come!
