A homeowner needed immediate waterproofing of their basement when they noticed that they had started to gather water during heavy rain. They contacted TC Hafford Basement Systems to take care of the problem quickly, and effectively. We got to the home, and started by installing our WaterGuard piping system. This system will collect any water entering the basement by completely surrounding the interior perimeter. The WaterGuard system then feeds the collected water into the SuperSump sump pump we installed to push the water up and out of the basement. Ridding the basement of any water that might have previously been damaging.
A homeowner in Stockton Springs with an existing sump system was beginning to have problems with their basement gathering water regardless. Needing a dry basement, this homeowner took to the internet to find a solution. Once they came across TC Hafford, they knew they had found their solution.
After our representative inspected the sump, we had a crew get to work. The old pump was removed, and we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This pump will practically never malfunction. There are three pumps inside the TripleSafe, one for regular pumping. One backup pump for when the first pump either can’t handle the water, or stops functioning. Then a final third pump which runs on a battery to maintain pumping even without power in the home. To finish this project, we installed an IceGuard filter outside the house. The IceGuard is a special piece of pipe which allows for water to continue to be pumped out of the house should the lower end of the drainage pipe become blocked by debris. Now this homeowner has a dry basement, and it will stay that way!
A homeowner in Searsmont had an addition put onto their home. This addition caused leak in the basement of the home, by creating a crack along where the old met the new. This leak was a problem for the homeowner, so they came to TC Hafford Basement Systems to solve their problem. We had a representative take a look, then we got to work!
To fix this crack in the joining of the two sides of the house, we used FlexiSpan. Starting this process, we filled the crack with a sealant. This is the first step of FlexiSpan, and acts as a primary barrier against water coming in through the crack. We then laid a foam pad over the top of the crack. This helps the structure of FlexiSpan, allowing it to be flexible, should the crack shift at all. Finally, the foam is covered with a second layer of sealant. This seals the entire piece in place, locking out moisture permanently.
John from Brooks was in need of a way to keep his basement dry. Water seemed to be coming in from nowhere and this was a problem. One internet search later and John had found TC Hafford Basement Systems. He soon made a phone call to get a free estimate on what could be done to help fix his wet basement problem. After deciding on which solution he wanted, we had out crew get to work on the basement.
We dug up the interior perimeter of the basement. This made way for the WaterGuard piping system. This will collect the water coming in from the walls or floor and direct it to the sump. In the sump, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This pump utilizes three separate pumps. One primary pump, one secondary pump in case there is too much water for the first to handle, and finally a battery powered backup pump for when the power goes out. This pushes the water up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Now this homeowner has a dry basement thanks to WaterGuard!
A homeowner in Liberty had a crawlspace with a dirt floor. Moisture was entering through this floor easily, and the homeowner wanted to stop this from happening. They soon got into contact with TC Hafford Basement Systems to get their problem solved. We had a representative take a look at the crawlspace; then we got to work! To solve the issue with water easily entering through the dirt floor, we poured a concrete slab to form a new floor for the crawlspace. This won’t guarantee a perfectly dry crawlspace, but it is much better than dirt. On top of this concrete slab, we laid down a Drainage Matting. This will stop moisture that enters through the floor or wall from making its way to the center of the crawlspace. Giving it time to drain back out. Now this homeowner no longer has a dirt floor or a wet crawlspace!
A homeowner in Morrill was in need of basement improvement. His basement would flood regularly during heavy rains, and he needed a way to make this stop. Needing a solution to his problem, he took up the Yellow Pages and located TC Hafford Basement Systems. We were just the people he needed. The homeowner soon called us to get a free estimate. When they had decided on the work they wanted done, we started on the basement waterproofing.
For starters, the interior of the basement needed to be excavated. This cleared a trench for us to lay down a WaterGuard piping system leading to a sump. The WaterGuard is then covered over with rocks and cement to conceal it underneath the perimeter. This pipe will collect water as it inters the basement through the walls or the floor. Transporting it to the sump to be removed. In the sump, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This device contains three separate pumps. One primary pump, a backup pump if necessary, and a final battery-powered pump for power outages. To finish off the interior of the basement, we covered the walls in a BrightWall lining. This is a solid plastic that keeps the walls looking clean while directing any moisture down into the WaterGuard piping. Finally, on the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe piece to the discharge line leaving from the sump. This IceGuard will ensure water flow will continue even if the lower end of the line is blocked by ice or debris. This homeowner now owns a dry basement, which will stay that way for many years to come!
A homeowner in Freedom had a basement with an exceptionally smelly odor. This was a clear sign of mold growth, which was caused by moisture making its way into the basement. This moisture issue needed to be addressed, so the homeowner got into contact with TC Hafford Basement Systems. We soon had a representative head out to the home for an inspection and to give a free estimate. We got the go ahead and started work on the basement!
The first thing that needed to be done was digging up the interior perimeter of the basement. This trench made it possible to lay a WaterGuard pipe system. This pipe will capture the water entering trough the walls or for before it makes it to the surface. The water is then directed to the sump in the basement. Here we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will take the water from the pipe and force it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. On the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard piece to the PVC line. This is a specialized pipe that allows the water coming from the sumo to exit the pipe should the lower end of the discharge line become blocker by ice or other debris. These additions will keep this homeowner’s basement mold free for many years to come!
Rick from Stockton Springs had a crawlspace that would gather water during rain. This normally wasn’t a problem for Rick, but it started to form a smell, that was finding its way into his home. He needed a way to stop moisture from gathering in his crawlspace if he wanted to put an end to this smell, so he got online and searched for a solution. Not long after he began his search, he found TC Hafford Basement Systems, who he decided was the right company for the job. Rick called us soon after and we got to work!
The water entering his crawlspace was clearly coming in from the surrounding soil. Water can leak in through the soil rather easily when it rains. The water builds up in the soil, and then when the pressure is great enough, seeks out places where there is less pressure, AKA, Ricks crawlspace. To stop the water from entering, we encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This is a thin sheet of plastic that will hold out any moisture trying to leak in through the walls or floor of the crawlspace. Rick can live odor free now that his crawlspace has been waterproofed!
A homeowner in Lincolnville had a sump pump, but it would regularly back up whenever it rained exceptionally hard. Needing a sump pump that performed as intended, the homeowner searched for a solution. They soon got in touch with us at TC Hafford Basement Systems, and we were able to inspect the basement to give them a free estimate. They would need a new sump pump, and their crawlspace was in need of a proper vapor barrier. The homeowner chose what work they wanted done and we got started!
We began by removing the old sump pump from the basement. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump, which would be able to handle all the water that would gather in the basement. Pumping it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Next, in the crawlspace, we lined the wall/floor joint with a Drainage Matting. This mat will hold back water as it enters, giving it time to drain back into the floor. Finally, to ensure moisture doesn’t still make it into the air of the crawlspace, we encapsulated the space with a CleanSpace Liner. This is a thin sheet of plastic that completely locks out all water trying to enter the crawlspace atmosphere through the walls or floor. Now this homeowner has a functional sump pump and a proper vapor barrier. No more flooding, thanks to CleanSpace and SuperSump!
A homeowner in Belfast noticed a smell coming from their crawlspace. This smell was being created by mold growing on the walls. This was due to a high moisture content in the air of the crawlspace. Looking for professional help, the homeowner called TC Hafford Basement Systems. We had a representative sent to the home to inspect the basement and give the homeowner their free estimate. They decided on what work they wanted done and we got started.
To eliminate the moisture entering the basement, we encapsulated the interior with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner is made of a solid plastic, able to hold back any water trying to find its way to the interior of the crawlspace. We then installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier in the crawlspace. This dehumidifier will take in the moisture from the air, dry it out, and push it out into the further reaches of the crawlspace. This forces more moist air back toward the dehumidifier, creating a cycle of drying air. With these two systems working together, the moisture from the crawlspace has been completely eliminated, along with the proper atmosphere for mold growth. This homeowner should no longer experience a smell coming from their crawlspace.
A homeowner in Winterport with a flooding basement was seeking a way to stop the water. It would flood during heavy rains, and the water would stick around for a few days after. The homeowner got online to find their answer. They soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems and called us right away. We sent out our representative to inspect the basement and gave the homeowner their free estimate. They gave us the go ahead and our crew got to work!
We excavated the interior perimeter of the basement floor to begin with. The debris was then carried out of the basement. We also dug out a sump for the homeowner that the new trench lead to. We then laid down our WaterGuard pipe system in the trench, and covered it with loose rocks and cement to conceal it without hindering functionality. The specially designed pipes will capture any water trying to enter the basement through the walls or floor. Then this water will be guided to the sump we dug out. Within this sump, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe contains three pumps to keep the basement dry 24/7. A primary and secondary pump for the bulk of the water, then a battery-backup pump to operate when the power goes out. Finally, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. This will suck in the moist air surrounding it, dry it out, then push it out into the further reaches of the basement. This cycles more moist air back to the SaniDry, continuing until all of the moisture has been removed from the basement.
These systems working together is a sure-fire way to maintain a dry, healthy basement. Never again will this homeowner need to deal with a flooded basement while living in this home.
A couple in Unity had been dealing with water building up in their basement for years. Having been using a portable pump to remove the water, the homeowners needed a permanent solution. They took to the internet and found TC Hafford Basement Systems. They got in touch and we got started on the basement!
We dug out a hole in the basement floor to become the sump within the basement. Within his new sump, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This device contains three separate pumps. The primary pump handles the bulk of the water, operating the majority of the time. The secondary pump takes over for the primary pump should it fail for any reason and continue to evacuate the water within the basement. The third pump is a battery backup pump. This pump will remain inactive until the power goes out in the home, and then this pump will handle any water that needs to be pumped out of the basement. On the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard piece of pipe to the discharge line through which the water exits. This specially designed pipe will allow the water coming from the pump to continue to leave the home even if the lower end of the pipe becomes blocked by ice or other debris.
With this new upgrade, these homeowners can now live care free with a dry basement!
A homeowner in Palermo had been working on finishing his basement, but couldn’t quite complete the project because of water leakage. One corner in particular would allow water to leak in during heavy rains, and the homeowner needed something done about it. Seeking help online, the homeowner soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems. He gave us a call and we had our crew sent over to fix his problem.
To begin our work, we needed to dig up a trench surrounding the inside perimeter of the basement floor. Because the water was entering through the cement foundation, we needed to install our WaterGuard system underneath the floor to capture this water. With this system cemented in place, any water trying to come in through the foundation would be redirected to the sump in the basement. Within the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will force any collected 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 discharge line. This specially designed pipe will allow water to continue to flow from the line, even if the lower end is blocked by any debris.
Now this homeowner can easily finish his basement with these waterproofing systems in place!
A homeowner in Islesboro had a basement which they were in the process of finishing. This basement, however, had a moisture problem, which was causing mold growth, and an unpleasant smell. Requiring professional help, the homeowner called TC Hafford Basement Systems after hearing about us from a friend. We got them their free estimate, and then we got to work!
Within the basement, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. The SaniDry will take in the air immediately surrounding itself. This air is then dried out and pushed back into the further reaches of the basement. This causes the air in between to be forced towards the SaniDry, creating a cycle until all of the moisture is gone. With this new dehumidifier in place, the environment in which mold thrives had been entirely removed. Eliminating this homeowners problem!
A homeowner living in Searsport, ME had been experiencing some difficulties keeping water from gathering across their basement floor. They were in need of a system to remove the water from the basement more efficiently than their current sump drain. They soon found us at TC Hafford Basement Systems after a short search online. Once they called us and received their free estimate, they decided to have us waterproof their basement the right way!
Once our installation crew arrived at the home they began by installing a SmartSump sump pump in the old sump drain. This pump will take in any water entering the sump, forcing it up and out of the home through a PVC discharge line. Next, a SaniDry CX dehumidifier was installed within the space to clear out any moisture building up in the air. The SaniDry will take in the damp air around itself, passing any collected water on to the sump for removal while circulating the dried air back into the basement.
Outside the home, two pipe pieces were attached to the discharge line before our crew was finished. The first was an IceGuard pipe section attached just beyond where the line exits the home. This pipe segment has special angled holes built-in which allow any trapped water to escape before backing up the discharge line. This will protect the home from any ice or debris blockages in the lower-line. Finally, a LawnScape piece was used to cap the end of the line. This will pleasantly blend the line in with the lawn, so that the water can drain away into the ground away from the home.
With their newly upgraded sump system, this homeowner will no longer need to worry about manually keeping their basement dry. The SmartSump and SaniDry will take care of any water removal needed.
A homeowner living in Palermo, ME had been living with a damp crawlspace for some time. Unsure how to keep the moisture from rainfall out themselves, there wasn't much they could do. But when they were told about TC Hafford Basement Systems by a relative, they called us soon after and we set them up with a free estimate! They quickly gave us the go-ahead to get the job done.
As soon as our crew arrived at the home they were able to get started waterproofing this crawlspace right away. To allow any water blocked by the vapor barrier, a Drainage Matting was installed across the floor of the space. This mat sits just above the floor and allows water trapped below it to flow towards the perimeter of the crawlspace where it will drain away. Next, a CleanSpace liner was used to encapsulate the interior of the space. The CleanSpace forms a water-tight seal, locking any moisture leaking into the crawlspace on the exterior of the barrier.
With thie vapor barrier in place, any moisture problems, such as a damp smell will no longer negatively affect this homeowner.
A homeowner that lived in Searsmont, ME had been having some problems with moisture leaking into their basement. Unsure how to prevent these leakages on their own, the homeowner needed assistance. After a quick search online, they found TC Hafford Basement Systems and called us to see if we could help. We set them up with a free estimate of what options they had and then got started on the waterproofing once they chose what work they wanted done.
When our installation crew arrived at the home, to prevent water from reaching the surface of the concrete floor in the future, a shallow trench was dug into the perimeter. Here, WaterGuard piping was laid, surrounding the basement floor. These pipes, buried beneath a fresh layer of concrete, will capture any moisture leaking towards the basement inerior and guided it through the floor directly to the SuperSump sump pump we installed next. The SuperSump takes the collected water and forces it out of the home through a PVC discharge line.
On the exterior of the home, two additions were made to the discharge line before our crew was finished. The first was an IceGuard pipe section attached to line just beyond where it exits the home. The IceGuard has special holes built-in which allow for trapped water to escape. This protects the basement from a backup if ice or other debris forms a blockage in the discharge line. Finally, a LawnScape pipe segment was used to cap the end of the line. This piece has a grate covering the end, allowing the water from the sump to flow out without interference.
Now that their basement has received a proper waterproofing, this homeowner will no longer suffer from a flooding basement during heavy rainfall. The WaterGuard piping will keep water from gathering on this basement floor for years to come!
A homeowner living in Morrill, ME had problem below their home. Their crawlspace was regularly taking on moisture from rainfall or melting winter snow and ice. This had created damp, musty conditions in the space that were causing problems for the homeowner. Looking to have the space protected from outside moisture, the homeowner searched for a remedy online and soon found us at TC Hafford Basement Systems. After calling to receive their free estimate, the homeowner was soon met by our sales representative who talked with them about their options. The homeowner hired us right away to get started on the waterproofing solution to their problem.
As soon as our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started on giving this crawlspace a proper vapor barrier by laying what is known as a Drainage Matting across the floor of the space. This mat has many holes throughout it, as well as a design that allows open channels to form between the ground and the mat. This allows any water blocked by the completed vapor barrier to flow down to the floor and drain away through the shortest path. To finish the installation, a CleanSpace liner was utilized to encapsulate the interior of the crawlspace. This thin white sheet will now lock out any outside moisture that might have otherwise leaked into the space. This will soon eliminate any musty smell that had been coming from the crawlspace as well as protecting the homeowner from typically unseen problems such as mold growth.
Now this homeowner can rest assured their crawlspace will remain water free, even during heavy rainfall. Their new vapor barrier will keep this space completely water-free for many years to come!
Having fixed a crack in their basement wall a few years ago, this Stockton Springs, ME homeowner was surprised to find water leaking through the crack once again. Worried about their basement suffering water damage, the homeowner sought a longer lasting solution online. They soon discovered us at TC Hafford Basement Systems and called us right away to set up their free estimate. The homeowner soon spoke with our sales representative and agreed on the work they wanted done to keep water out of their basement in the future.
Once our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started by utilizing a coarse brush to clear the area within and around the crack of debris. Next, the first layer of sealant was applied within the crack, beginning the FlexiSpan seal installation. A foam mat was then laid along the length of the crack and covered over by a second layer of sealant. The foam core within the completed FlexiSpan structure gives the seal its flexible nature. Now if the wall were to shift in such a way that the crack slightly changes shape, the seal will contort to the new shape and continue to hold back water.
With their crack properly sealed, this homeowner should no longer experience water leaking onto their basement floor through one of the walls. The FlexiSpan seal will ensure this basement stays water-free well into the future!
This homeowner living in Palermo, ME had recently begun to go through the process of turning their basement into a finished space. But a pesky crack along one of the concrete walls was leaking water into the space, which was an immediate problem. After hearing about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a friend, the homeowner called us right away to set up a free estimate. Our salesperson visited the home to take a look and talk over the options with the homeowner. They soon agreed to what work they wanted done and we got started!
When our installation crew arrived at the home, they got started on fixing this crack with a FlexiSpan seal by brushing dust and debris away from the crack with a coarse brush. Next, a primary sealant layer was applied within and slightly around the crack. This layer was then covered by a foam matting running the length of the crack. Using a second layer of sealant to cover over the foam and lock this structure in place against the crack completes the FlexiSpan installation. This new seal will lock out moisture that would have previously leaked into the basement with ease. The foam core within the FlexiSpan gives the seal the flexibility the name suggests, allowing it to stay over the crack if the wall were to shift at all.
Now that the leaking problem has been resolved, this homeowner can move forward with their initial plans! The FlexiSpan seal will ensure this basement stays water-free for years to come.
After noticing two cracks that had recently opened on their basement walls, this Searsmont, ME homeowner knew right away they needed to do something about them before the problem got worse. Searching online for a solution, they soon came across our TC Hafford website and called us to set up their own free estimate! After meeting with our sales representative, the homeowner gave us the go ahead to get started as soon as our crew was available.
Once the crew arrived at the home, they got started on the cracks by clearing them of debris with a coarse brush. This will allow the sealant to better adhere to the walls surface. An initial layer of sealant was then applied over the top of each crack, with plastic plugs being inserted every few feet. Once dried in place, these plugs were opened. Then starting from the bottom and working their way up, our crew injected Polyurethane through each of the plugs into the cracks, resealing each plug once filled. This will completely seal both of these problem cracks, preventing any moisture from flowing through.
With the cracks sealed, that’s two less problems on the mind of this homeowner. The Polyurethane Injections will ensure this basement remains leak-free for years to come!
When this Liberty, ME homeowner wanted to increase the height of the crawlspace below their home, they knew they would need new supports where the ground was. After finding a way to remove the dirt covering roughly half the crawlspace, the homeowner searched online for a way to support their home. Once they came across our TC Hafford Basement Systems website, they called us right away to receive their free estimate on the job. After hearing what we could do for them, the homeowner hired us to help finish this project they had in mind.
Our installation crew arrived at the home and began work on this crawlspace by placing down the solid concrete footings that the new supports will rest on. These footings sit on a layer of engineered fill to avoid setting them on potentially unstable ground. Nest, the SmartJack beams are installed and adjusted to fit against the joists of the crawlspace, creating supports capable of maintaining the desired height the homeowner wants for their crawlspace. These beams can also be adjusted in the future, should the home begin to settle in unevenly.
Now that the project this homeowner set out to accomplish has been completed, their crawlspace is much more accessible. These new SmartJack piers will keep this home supported for many years into the future.
This property owner with a home in Islesboro, ME had recently discovered the basement in this home to be covered by a puddle of water following a recent storm. This needed to be resolved immediately, so they searched online for a quick solution. Once they found our TC Hafford Basement Systems website, they called our office staff to see about receiving a free estimate on the repairs. We scheduled an appointment for them to speak with our sales representative on the details of the solution and they hired us to get the job done soon after said meeting concluded.
When our installation crew arrived at the property, they got started by installing a TripleSafe sump system in the floor of the basement. Now any leaking water will flow into this sump and be removed from the basement through a PVC discharge line. The TripleSafe unit contains three pumps within itself. The first and second pumps both handle the bulk of the water with the secondary only activating if the primary is overwhelmed by the water level. The third and final pump runs off an internal battery. This pump will activate when the home loses power so that the basement remains dry even when the usual pumps cannot function.
Outside the home, our crew made two additions to the discharge line before they were finished waterproofing this basement. The first addition was an IceGuard pipe segment intersected into the discharge line just beyond where it leaves the side of the home. The IceGuard has upward angled holes that only allow water blocked by ice or debris to escape the side of the line. This protects the basement against potential backups from outside. Finally, a LawnScape discharge port was used to cap the end of the line. This piece has a grate that covers the opening in the pipe to block any debris that might end up causing a blockage in the line.
With these improvements to their home, this property owner no longer has a moisture problem to worry about! The TripleSafe pump will keep this basement floor water-free for years to come!
