Job Stories From Somerset County, ME
Fairfield, ME, Home Gets Newly Poured Basement Floor

When a homeowner in Fairfield, ME, needed a new basement floor, complete with waterproofing; they knew just where to go once they heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems. We had a crew on the scene ASAP, and they got to work excavating the old basement floor. Once the old floor was dug up and moved out, the new concrete slab could be poured.

The new floor was encapsulated by a WaterGuard system to capture any water trying to seep into the house through the walls or from underneath. The WaterGuard piping lead to a sump pump which was built into the newly poured floor. This sump is where the water goes to be pumped out of the basement.

Sump Pump Replaced with TripleSafe System in Madison, ME

A homeowner in Madison had a sump pump that would push water out of their basement. But they noticed that the pump was starting to have water come into it from the outside. This was the opposite of what the homeowner wanted the pump to be doing. After a quick internet search, the homeowner contacted TC Hafford Basement Systems. We took a look at the basement and got to work.

We started by removing the old sump pump, that device wasn’t cutting it anymore. We then installed our TripleSafe sump pump. This device uses not one, but three pumps to keep out water. There is one primary pump, and then two backup pumps in case the first fails for any reason. We then attached an IceGuard to the discharge pipe outside the house. This IceGuard will allow water to escape the pipe should the lower end of the discharge line get blocked by ice or other debris. This homeowner no longer needs to worry about their sump backing up and bringing more water into their basement.

Moist Crawlspace in Pittsfield, ME, Dried and Sealed

A homeowner in Pittsfield had moisture gathering in his crawlspace. This was the first time they had noticed the moisture gathering, and they wanted to get it fixed ASAP. The homeowner got online, and searched for a solution. TC Hafford was the solution they decided to go with! After a quick inspection of the crawlspace, our representative recommended options to the homeowner. After the homeowner made their selection, our crew got to work.

To help the water stay outside the crawlspace, we laid down a Drainage Matting. This will let any water on the inside flow to the outside. Then the entire crawlspace got encapsulated by CleanSpace Liner. This liner seals out any moisture, maintaining a dry crawlspace. Finally, we placed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This will keep the air dry should any moisture still make its way into the crawlspace. Now this homeowner can focus on other things, without needing to worry about their crawlspace.

Palymra, ME Basement Wall Sealed With FlexiSpan

A homeowner in Palmyra was having water problem in their basement. This problem was being caused by a crack that had formed in one of the walls. This crack was an easy access point for water from the surrounding soil. The homeowner needed a way to fix this, and turned to the Yellow Pages for help; finding TC Hafford Basement Systems.

We had a representative take a look, and he decided that FelxiSpan was the best option for this basement. FlexiSpan is a three layer system that starts with filling the crack with a sealant. This is the first line of defense against water trying to enter the basement. This layer is then covered with a foam matting, to act as the secondary barrier protecting against water. Finally the matting is covered in a layer of sealant to lock out any water trying to sneak in. This structure allows for the FlexiSpan to contort to the crack should it shift at all. This homeowner now no longer has a water problem in their basement.

Garage Slab In Solon, ME Leveled With PolyLevel

A homeowner in Solon had started to notice their garage floor slab was sinking down creating a discrepancy between it and the rest of the foundation. This needed to be addressed as soon as possible, but this homeowner was unsure how to fix this issue. They got online and searched for a solution. TC Hafford Basement Systems was the exact solution they were looking for, and they found us not long after starting their search. They gave us a call, and we got to work!

To realign the slab with the rest of the foundation, we needed to inject PolyLevel underneath it. This is a special foam that, once injected, will push the slab back up off the ground. After returning the slab to its original position, the PolyLevel will set and solidify. Holding the garage floor in place for years to come. Now this homeowner has a newly leveled garage floor that is no longer a cause for concern!

Crack In Rockwood, ME Basement Wall Repaired

A homeowner in Rockwood was having trouble with a crack forming in their basement. This crack was an easy entrance point for moisture, and could lead to water collecting in the basement or mold growth. Neither of these are things a homeowner wants in their basement; this homeowner being no different, they were soon in contact with TC Hafford Basement Systems after hearing about us from a friend. We had a representative at the home within days to look at the basement wall and give a free estimate. The homeowner chose how they wanted the crack fixed, a Polyurethane Injection, and we got to work!

We started the fix by covering over the crack with a paste to hold ports in place. We then inject the Polyurethane into the ports where it fills he crack completely, gripping tightly to the concrete around it. This Polyurethane will then harden and form an impassable barrier to lock out any moisture that would otherwise find its way in. Now the crack in this basement wall is a problem of the past!

Wet Crawlspace In Saint Albans, ME Kept Dry With CleanSpace

A homeowner in Saint Albans would have water gather in their crawlspace during heavy rains. This was causing mold growth within the crawlspace and needed to be stopped as soon as possible. After seeing one of our trucks, the homeowner looked us up and we got them their free estimate! They chose what work they wanted done and we had our crew head over to the home.

We started by laying a Drainage Matting around the inside perimeter of the crawlspace. This will hold back the water leaking in through the walls or wall/floor joint. Allowing it time to drain before it causes any issues within the crawlspace. We then encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner will hold back any further moisture attempting to enter through the walls or floor. Now mold is no longer a concern for this homeowner, now that their crawlspace has been completely waterproofed.

Leaking Basement In Skowhegan, ME Sealed With FlexiSpan

A homeowner in Skowhegan was noticing pools of water gathering in their basement. The water was entering through a crack in the wall of the basement. This crack had expanded beyond the fixing capabilities of the homeowner, so they searched for a way to have it done professionally. They soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a family friend, and gave us a call right away! We had a representative inspect the basement to give the homeowner a free estimate of costs for the repair. The homeowner decided on what solution they wanted, and we got to work.

We began by filling the crack with an initial layer of sealant. This first layer won’t be enough to completely seal the crack, but it is the first of three layers to form FlexiSpan. Next, we laid a foam matting over the top of the sealant. This foam adds flexibility to the overall structure of the FlexiSpan, giving it its name. We then covered the foam with a second layer of sealant. This final layer will lock out moisture trying to enter through the crack, and finish the FlexiSpan. The FlexiSpan will adhere to the crack, no matter the situation. Even if the wall shifts in any way, the FlexiSpan will shift along with it. Maintaining a dry basement floor for years to come!

Leaking Basement In Norridgewock, ME Sealed

A couple in Norridgewock was having issues with water entering their basement through their foundation walls; Especially through a large crack on one of the walls. Needing professional help, the homeowners called TC Hafford Basement Systems, immediately after seeing us on their television. We had a representative at the home in no time to inspect the basement and give the homeowners a free estimate. They made their decision and our crew got to work!

We began by digging a trench around the interior perimeter of their basement floor. This allowed us to lay down our WaterGuard piping system, lining the basement floor. It was then covered in rocks and cement to conceal it without stopping it from functioning. The WaterGuard will take in all the water trying to enter through the walls or floor, guiding it then out of the basement through the sump. We then got to work sealing the crack. To help with the sealing process, we put down a layer of sealant over the top of the crack, with plugs spread out along the sealant. An injection of Polyurethane was then shot into each of these plugs. Filling the crack, and solidifying. Completely sealing out any moisture that would have previously entered.

With these in place, the homeowners will no longer experience any trouble with water in their basement!

Leaking Dirt Basement In North Anson, ME Sealed With CleanSpace

A homeowner in North Anson was having trouble with their dirt basement. Water would usually leak in during rain, but mold was starting to spread throughout the basement. Needing a way to deal with this mold, the homeowner searched online for an answer. They soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems and called us right away. We investigated the basement, gave them their free estimate, and then got to work!

To begin, we removed a portion of the dirt floor that was uneven, and graded the floor smooth. We then dug out a sump within the basement to install our SuperSump sump pump. This pump can remove 2,650 gallons of water per hour from the space, forcing it all out through a PVC discharge line. The basement was then encapsulated with a CleanSpace Liner. This thin plastic sheet covers every surface around the basement, except for the ceiling. No more moisture will be able to enter the interior of this basement; It will all be flushed away through the sump. Finally, on the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard piece to the discharge line. The IceGuard is a special open pipe that will allow water to escape should the lower end of the pipe become blocked and begin to back-up.

With these additions to the basement, this homeowners mold problem will be a thing of the past! Without the moisture in the air to live off of, the mold will die and disappear.

Cracked Wall In Hartland, ME Basement Sealed With FlexiSpan

A homeowner in Hartland noticed he had a crack in the wall of his basement. This crack in the foundation was a highway for water from the surrounding soil to enter into the basement through. After not being able to stop this water himself, the homeowner searched online for a solution. He soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems and contacted us to set up a meeting. He received his free estimate and then we got to work!

To seal the crack, we needed to apply FlexiSpan; A flexible structure able to hold back moisture while adhering to the crack. We began by filling the crack with a layer of sealant. This primary layer is then covered over with a foam matting. This mat gives the structure its flexibility. Finally, we applied another layer of sealant over the top of the matting. This completes the FlexiSpan, locking out any moisture. The flexibility of this seal will allow the FlexiSpan to bend, and stay over the crack should the basement wall move in any wall.

With FlexiSpan in place, this homeowner has a dry basement floor again; Which will hopefully stay that way!

Caving Basement Wall In Smithfield, ME Fortified With PowerBrace

A couple in Smithfield had a problem in their basement. One of the walls looked like it was about to cave in! Over the years, the pressure from the surrounding soil had forced the wall inward, to the point where it was visibly bowing. Requiring a solution to this problem, the homeowners searched online and found TC Hafford Basement Systems. We had our representative look at the basement, and offer a free estimate. After the homeowners made their decision, our crew got to work!

In order to put the wall back to its original position, we needed to use PowerBrace technology. To install the PowerBraces, we secured steel I-beams to the wall by anchoring the bottom to the concrete floor. The tops of the beams are secured to the wooden joists in the ceiling of the basement. These are held with special, adjustable screws, allowing for the PowerBrace to be tightened at a later date once the wall has begun to move back into place. With the PowerBraces in place, not only will this wall no longer be in danger of collapse, but the wall will eventually return to near new condition!

Detroit, ME Receives Much Needed Waterproofing with WaterGuard

A homeowner in Detroit, Maine was experiencing trouble with their basement. Water was coming in through the walls of the basement, straight through the foundation. Fearing water damage to their property, the homeowner got online to find for a solution. They soon came across TC Hafford Basement Systems, and knew we could handle their waterproofing needs. They had a meeting with one of our representatives, and then we got to work!

To begin, we excavated the interior perimeter of the basement floor. This gave us a trench in which to lay down our WaterGuard piping system. Which was then covered over with loose rocks and cement to conceal it without hindering functionality. The WaterGuard would capture the water as it traveled through the concrete, guiding it out of the basement. Next, we covered the walls of the basement with BrightWall panels. These hard-plastic panels will collect the moisture as it comes in through the walls, funneling it down to the WaterGuard pipes below as it flows.

With these two products working in tandem, this basement floor won’t see any pooled up water in the future!

Dirt Basement In Cambridge Gets Waterproofed With WaterGuard

A homeowner in Cambridge was having trouble with their dirt basement. Water would easily leak in through the soil and flood the space during heavy rains, the space was practically unusable. Needing a way to waterproof their basement, the homeowner called TC Hafford Basement Systems after hearing about us from a contractor who had worked on the home. We inspected the basement, and gave the owner a free estimate as to what could be done. They gave us the go ahead and we got started!

We began by leveling the floor to make way for concrete to be laid. We then laid down a new slab on the dirt to give the basement a concrete floor. This slab had a WaterGuard pipe system built into it, and would capture water as it tried to leak through, and guide it to the sump. The sump was also built into the new cement, within which we installed a SmartDrain pump. The water brought to this SmartDrain will be pumped up and out of the basement, keeping it off of the basement floor.

With this new waterproofed basement floor, this homeowner can now use their basement for any number of things!

WaterGuard Installation Keeps New Portland, ME Basement Dry

A couple living in New Portland, ME was having some problems with their concrete foundation. During rainfall, water would leak into the basement, with the foundation doing little to keep the water out. Tired of these wet basement conditions, the homeowners searched online for a solution. They soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems and contacted us to get their free estimate. Shorlty after they hired us to take care of their wet basement!


As soon as our installation crew arrived they were able to begin work on the foundation to keep out any future leaks. To begin, a shallow trench was excavated into the perimeter of the concrete floor. WaterGuard piping was then used to line this trench, surrounding the basement. Fresh concrete was used to seal the WaterGuard within the floor where it will capture any leaking moisture that might have otherwise made it into the basement. The water trapped inside the WaterGuard is guided within the floor to the sump where a SuperSump pump was installed. The SuperSump then takes the collected water and forces it up and out of the home through a PVC discahrge line.


Now that their basement has been properly waterproofed, these homeowners can make use of the space. The WaterGuard & SuperSump will ensure this basement stays dry for years into the future!

Shawmut, ME Basement Kept Water-Free with WaterGuard Installation

With water regularly gathering in their basement, this Shawmut, ME homeowner needed waterproofing, fast! The water had been leaking into their basement up through the concrete foundation. They heard from a relative that TC Hafford Basement Systems could solve their moisture probloem and called us to set up their free estimate right away. The homeowner decided on what work they wanted done and we dispatched our crew to begin work.


Once our crew arrived at the home, they began the waterproofing of the basement by digging a shallow trench into the perimeter of the floor. Here, they laid down WaterGuard piping, surrounding the basement perimeter. These pipes were then buried using rocks and concrete. Within the floor, the WaterGuard will take in any leaking moisture through small slits in the bottom of the pipes. This collected water is guided directly to the SuperSump sump pump we also installed in the basement floor. This pump will force any water up and out of the home through a PVC discharge line.

The discharge line will carry the water away from the home before the water exits onto the lawn through a LawnScape pipe cap. This piece allows for the water to exit while preventing debris from entering the end of the line. Just beyond where the line exits the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe segment. This will protect the basement against ice blocking the lower end of the line. The blocked water will exit through holes in the the IceGuard before reaching back into the basement.


These new additions will keep any water on the outside of this Shawmut, ME basement. This homeowner can now utilize the space without needing to worry about water damage.

Crawlspace in Madison, ME Receives Proper Vapor Barrier

A homeowner living in Madison, ME had a problem. The crawlspace beneath their home would regularaly take on water from rain and melting snow. Tired of the musty smell this moisture was causing throughout their home, the homeowner was looking for something they could do to put an end to it. They then saw TC Hafford Basement Systems on their TV and called us right away to get their free estimate.


Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work on waterproofing this crawlspace right away. To begin, a Drainage Matting was laid across the floor of the space. This will allow for any moisture build-up within the barrier to flow out through the ground. Next, a CleanSpace liner was used to encapsulate the space. This coevers all of the walls as well as the floor with a plastic sheet that completely locks out moisture. These two layers now form a vapor barrier, protecting the space against outside water.


Now that their crawlspace is safe from leaks, this homeowner should no longer have to suffer from damp, musty air coming from the space. The CleanSpace barrier will keep out any and all water that would otherwise leak in and cause problems.

WaterGuard Installation Keeps Water from Flooding Saint Albans, ME Basement

A homeowner living in Saint Albans, ME was experiencing trouble with keeping their basement clear of water. With water leaking in through the foundation itself, the homeowner had no means of preventing the flooding from taking place. They were soon referred to contact us at TC Hafford to take care of their problem, and they called us right away ot receive their free estimate. They liked what we could do for them and hired us to get the job done!


Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work on the basement by excavating a shallow trench into the perimeter of the floor. WaterGuard piping was then laid down within this trench and buried beneath a fresh layer of concrete. Within the floor, these pipes will take in the leaking moistrue, guiding it directly to the sump for removal before it can even reach the surface. We installed a SuperSump pump within the floor to take care of the water-removal process. The SuperSump can output water at a rater of 2,650 gallons per hour, which is plenty to keep this basement water-free.


The water leaves the home through a PVC discharge line. Outside the home, just beyond where the discharge line exits the home, an IceGuard pipe segment was attached to protect against ice blocking the line. Any trapped water will be able to escape through special holes in the IceGuard before reaching back up into the home. Finally, a LawnScape discharge port was used to cap the end of the line. This piece has a grate over the end to keep debris from falling into the line while allowing the water to flow out onto the ground.


These basement improvements will ensure this homeowner will no longer need to remove the water from their basement themselves. The WaterGuard & SuperSump will keep the basement dry automatically.

WaterGuard Piping Saves Norridgewock, ME Basement from Flooding

A homeowner that lived in Norridgewock, ME had a problem. Their concrete foundation was leaking water into their basement during rainfall. Worried about water damage, the homeowner asked around about what could be done to help. They were soon referred to us at TC Hafford Basement Systems and called to set up their free estimate. After their estimate, they gave us the go-ahead to get start on this basement waterproofing!


Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started on the project by excavating a trench into the perimeter of the basement floor. Within this trench, a WaterGuard piping system was installed. Buried below a fresh coat of concrete, these pipes capture leaking moisture through small slits on the bottom edge of each pipe. This trapped water is guided to the sump where a SuperSump pump was installed. The SuperSump then pumps any collected water out of the home through a PVC discharge line. This water then flows across the lawn and drains back into the ground some distance from the home.


Now any rainwater will be swept away through the WaterGuard before it ever reaches the surface of this basement. This homeowner can rest assured their belonging will remain undamaged in the future.

WaterGuard Piping Keeps Skowhegan, ME Basement Water-Free

A homeowner in Skowhegan, ME was living with a problem. They had a basement that wouldregularly take on water during rainfall. With the water leaking in directly through their concrete foundation, this homeowner was unsure how to prevent this leakage on their own. Wanting to have something done about it, they searched online for a solution and soon found us at TC Hafford Basement Systems. They called us soon after to set up their free estimate. After hearing what we could do for them, they hired us to get the job done right!


Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they began work on the basement floor right away. A shallow trench was excavated into the perimeter of the concrete. Next, WaterGuard piping was installed within this trench and buried beneath a fresh layer of concrete. Concealed within the floor, the WaterGuard pipes will pull in any leaking moisture through slits along the pipes. The trapped water inside is then guided through the floor to the sump for removal from the home before it can reach the surface.


Within the sump in this basement, a TripleSafe device was installed. The TripleSafe contains three pumps within itself. The first and second pumps will pump out the majority of the water, with the secondary pump acting like a backup for when the primary cannot handle the load. Third, a battery backup pump activates only when the home is without power, keeping the basement dry even in especially heavy storms. The water enering the TripleSafe is forced up and out of the home through a PVC discharge line.


This line carries the water out and away from the home before it is deposited onto the lawn to drain away into the ground. An IceGuard pipe segment was attached to this discharge line just beyond where it exits the home. The IceGuard will protect against blockages lower in the line, such as ice, that may cause a backup into the basement. A special hole in the side of the IceGuard will allow only trapped water to escape the line. Finally, a LawnScape discharge port was attached to the end of the line. This piece blends exposed end of the line into the lawn with a grated end that allows the water to flow out while preventing debris from entering the pipe.


With these improvements to their basement, this homeowner can now utilize their basement without any fear of water damage. The WaterGuard & TripleSafe will ensure this basement remains dry for years to come!

Mold Problem in Rockwood, ME Prevented with SaniDry Installation

With moisture gathering in their basement, this Rockwood, ME homeowner was worried about a mold problem developing in the space. They needed a way to keep moisture out of the air within their basement but didn’t know how. They soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a friend and called us to set up their free estimate. Once they heard their options, they knew they wanted to move forward with the solution, so we soon got started!

When our installation crew got dispatched to the home, they got to work right away on eliminating this homeowner’s moisture problem. To achieve this, a SaniDry XP dehumidifier was installed on the floor of the basement and connected to the existing sump. The SaniDry will take in the moist air from around the basement, separating the moisture from it and circulating dry air back into the space. Over time, this will eliminate the moisture problem in this basement and remove the threat of mold growth entirely. The water collected from the air is passed to the sump to drain out and away from the home.

With a dehumidifier in their basement, this homeowner will no longer suffer from a damp, musty basement. Their SaniDry XP will keep this basement air dry and healthy!

SuperSump Installation Protects Skowhegan, ME Basement from Flooding

When this homeowner living in Skowhegan, ME began to notice water gathering in one corner of their basement, they knew they would need to do something about it before the problem got worse. They called us at TC Hafford shortly after seeing us on their television. Our office staff set them up with a free estimate and our sales rep. soon visited the home to look over the basement. After hearing their options, the homeowner hired us to get the job done as soon as possible!

When our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started waterproofing the space by digging out a hole for a sump to be installed. Here, a SuperSump was placed in the floor, where it will collect the water gathering on the floor of the basement and force it out of the home through a PVC discharge line. The SuperSump can remove over 2.600 gallons of water from the home every hour, which will keep any rainfall at bay. Nearby, an UltraSump backup battery was installed and connected to the SuperSump. This device will power the SuperSump during any outages in the home, charging again when the power returns to the home.

The discharge line that carries the water from the home received two additions on the exterior of the home before we were finished with this job. The first was an IceGuard section attached to the line just beyond where it leaves the side of the home. The IceGuard has upward facing holes built-in that protect the basement from blockages in the pipe. Now if ice were to block the discharge line, the trapped water would escape through the sides of the IceGuard without overflowing back onto the basement floor. Finally, a LawnScape discharge port was used to cap the end of the line. This piece covers the end of the line with a grate, blocking most debris from entering the line while allowing the water to continue to flow from the home onto the ground.

With a new sump system in their basement, the flooding this homeowner was experiencing will now be a thing of the past. The SuperSump & UltraSump combination will be more than enough to keep back any leaking moisture in the future!

Madison, ME Basement Receives Much Needed WaterGuard Installation

Even though their home sat on a concrete foundation, water would still end up leaking into the basement of this Madison, ME home. Uncertain on what to do to stop the leakage, the homeowner called TC Hafford Basement Systems soon after seeing us on their TV. Our office staff set them up with a free estimate and they were soon given details on what we could do for them by one of our sales representatives. They gave us the green light to get started on the waterproofing right away!

When our installation crew arrived at the home, they needed a way to prevent moisture from entering the basement through the concrete foundation. To achieve this, a shallow trench was excavated into the perimeter of the concrete floor, allowing for WaterGuard piping to be laid down below the surface level of the floor. After being covered over by a fresh layer of concrete, the WaterGuard piping within the floor will capture any leaking moisture from now-on. The water, collected through slits in the edges of the pipes, travels through the WaterGuard to the sump where it will be removed from the home.

Within the sump, our crew installed a SuperSump pump with an UltraSump battery connected nearby. The SuperSump will take in any water collected by the WaterGuard, forcing it up and out of the home through a PVC discharge line. The SuperSump is capable of outputting over 2,600 gallons of water every hour. The UltraSump that was connected to the SuperSump is a backup battery that will activate to power the SuperSump during any power outages in the home. This will enable the SuperSump to maintain a dry basement floor even during exceptionally harsh storms.

With their newly protected basement, this homeowner can now use the space for storage without the fear of water damaging their property. The WaterGuard piping will keep the surface of this basement floor dry for years to come!

Living with a musty smell in parts of their home, this Saint Albans, ME homeowner was looking a solution to their problem. They took to the internet and soon discovered our TC Hafford Basement Systems website. After they looked over our site, they called us to set up their free estimate right away! Our office staff scheduled a time for the homeowner to meet with our sales representative and review their options. After their meeting, the homeowner hired us right away to dry the wet crawlspace at the root of the problem.

As soon as our installation crew arrived, they began work on the crawlspace by removing some existing dirt below the home and regrading the floor to better allow water to flow away from the space. A Drainage Matting was then laid across the crawlspace floor, completing the first half of the vapor barrier installation. The Drainage Matting has holes placed in a grid throughout itself and rests slightly above the surface of the floor. This will enable water blocked by the vapor barrier to flow out of the crawlspace without pooling up and creating new problems. Finally, a CleanSpace barrier was used to encapsulate the interior of the crawlspace. This liner covers the surfaces of the walls and covers the Drainage Matting to seal moisture out of the interior of the crawlspace.

With a new vapor barrier below their home, this homeowner’s moisture problem will no longer persist. The CleanSpace liner will keep out any future leakages for years down the road!

Flooded Basement in Madison, ME

New England is home to a lot of creative basements. From masonry walls to rock walls and even a combination of the two. It can often be hard to see the potential of a basement when the walls are cracked and crumbling and the floors are damp and dirty. However, the owners of this facility knew that this basement could be clean, dry, and safe.

This is a great example of a basement with dirt floors and cracked concrete. There's standing water causing mold and mildew to grow, which can create a potentially harmful environment. This space was unusable due to the moisture and uneven floors. 

These homeowners were ready for a change, so they called TC Hafford Basement Systems to get their free estimate. Rod Hughes designed a custom waterproofing system to keep the whole basement dry all them time. They even got a new concrete floor. Now their basement can be a safe, dry, usable space. 

As the foundation to a facility open to the public, having a safe and secure basement for years to come is important. By preventing water from flooding the basement in the future, they've added a whole new space to use for storage, or other options for their facility.
