TC Hafford received a call shortly after some heavy rain when Darlene’s finished basement had suffered a good amount of water damage. Darlene had heard of us through another satisfied customer, and knew we were the ones for the job.
Our rep, Phil Sprague, had gone out to inspect the basement, before calling to have our guys come out to implement the solution. Darlene decided to go with a near perfect waterproofing system; having a full WaterGuard running the perimeter, leading to the SuperSump sump pump, which would pump the water out through the IceGuard outside the basement. Our crew also sealed up several cracks in the basement walls using FlexiSpan to make sure water never leaks through those cracks again.
Now that her basement has been waterproofed, Darlene will no longer need to worry about having any water damage to her basement or belongings ever again!
A Homeowner in Sanford, who was investing in a new property, had water leaking into his basement through the block foundation. This was a major problem, and he immediately searched the web for a solution. Deciding on TC Hafford Basement Systems, this homeowner had come to the right place. After contacting us, Peter Folsom was dispatched to check out the basement and see what could be done to ratify the issue. Once the homeowner and Peter agreed on a fix, our crew was sent in to get to work.
To keep the water out of the basement in the future, TC Hafford constructed a WaterGuard to catch water as it enters, guiding it to the newly installed SuperSump sump pump, which carries the water out of the basement.
Now with a dry basement, and a system in place to keep it dry, this homeowner could feel much more confident in his investment.
In Buxton, ME, Robert was having some foundation trouble. His foundation had broken in two places, and was beginning to pull the walls of his home down. This was a big problem for Robert, and he needed it fixed, ASAP. After searching the web, Robert had found our site, and contacted us. Once Tony Hafford arrived and thoroughly inspected the situation, the team was called in to begin work on the foundation.
The exterior of the house was excavated around the foundation to make it accessible. Then, after the dirt was cleared away, Helical Piers were used to secure the foundation back into place. These are large steel screws which rest in the dirt and act as much stronger supports for the foundation.
With his foundation back to normal, and stronger than ever, Robert was left satisfied and without worry.
This homeowner in South Berwick wasn’t very happy with the windows they had in their basement. They were leaky, and didn’t look very good. This led them to contact TC Hafford Basement Systems to get the job done!
The three windows in the basement were taken out, and replaced by three Everlast Basement Windows, which are waterproof and extremely durable. The homeowner also purchased two SunHouse Basement Enclosures, as well as two domed covers for their new windows. These keep water and debris away from the new window, while the white painted interior of the SunHouse Enclosure will reflect plenty of light into the basement.
A home in Kennebunkport had quite a nasty crawlspace, as well as an occasionally wet basement, and the homeowner thought it was time to do something about it. Having heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from another satisfied customer, they quickly contacted us, and Peter Folsom went out to check out the property. Once the homeowner decided on what they wanted done, our team got to work.
Working in the crawlspace, the team covered the floors and walls with CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System, which will keep any moisture from the ground locked out, as well as bacteria that might have tried to migrate into the crawlspace. The homeowner also had our team install a SaniDry XP, to keep the air humidity within reasonable levels; making the basement and crawlspace uninhabitable for mold.
Over in the basement, the team installed a WaterGuard system to capture all the water coming into the basement through the ground and walls. This system was then connected to the SuperSump sump pump, which was put in to pump the water outside of the home.
James, from East Waterboro, was having trouble with his crawlspace and basement. They were gathering water, which could lead to problem for the house if left alone. James contacted TC Hafford after he had heard about us from another customer. Our representative, Peter Folsom, inspected the trouble areas and then called for a crew to be sent in.
The basement and crawlspace needed a few improvements before becoming waterproof, and the foreman of this job, Tony Hafford, made sure those improvements got implemented. The crawlspace was lined with a CleanSpace Drainage Matting, to allow for water to drain from the crawlspace. The basement was lined with a WaterGuard Drainage System to carry any water gathering in the basement to the newly installed TripleSafe Sump Pump. The TripleSafe Sump Pump features, as the name suggest, three separate pumps, one primary pump, and two backup pumps for possible pump failure protection. These systems then all connect to the outside, to an IceGuard drain pipe. This style of pipe is designed to function and drain water even in freezing conditions.
In Berwick, Maine, Andrea had an existing sump pump and dehumidifier, but still experienced a wet basement whenever it rained. After searching online for a solution, Andrea came to us. Once our representative Mike Morin took a look, a team was sent out to get to work.
TC Hafford started by installing a WaterGuard basement waterproofing system around the perimeter of the basement. This system is used to collect any water that might attempt to flow into the basement through the walls or up through the floor. This WaterGuard system was then connected through to a newly installed SuperSump sump pump, which replaced the old sump. This new sump pump pumps any water fed into it to the outside. Finally, the crew used an IceGuard pipe outside the house to prevent the water from being blocked. The IceGuard is a special piece of pipe that allows water to flow even when the rest of the pipe is blocked off by ice or other debris. After finishing these additions to the basement, Andrea now no longer has to worry about water in the slightest.
Linda from Eliot, ME, was having issues with water entering her basement through a crack in the wall. This crack was 1.6’ long, and was an excellent place for water to flow through from the surrounding earth. To seal this crack, and prevent any water from leaking through in the future, we used Flexispan. This involves covering the crack with a special flexible sealant. Then this sealant is covered with a unique Flexispan foam material. Finally a coating of sealant is applied over the foam material, sealing it against the wall. This crack won’t ever leak water into this basement again.
Steve from Lebanon started to notice a crack forming in his basement wall. This crack was starting to let water into the basement, and he wanted to fix this as soon as possible. Shortly after an internet search, Steve found TC Hafford Basement Systems and gave us a call. We inspected the crack, and quickly got to work applying FlexiSpan to fix the problem. To install Flexispan, we apply a sealant to the crack, to block water trying to enter through the crack. Then we cover this sealant with a foam strip, to further contain water that might enter along the edges of the crack. Finally, another layer of sealant is placed over the foam to completely lock out any water. The homeowner no longer needs to worry about this crack.
A homeowner was experiencing water seeping into their basement during heavy rains. This homeowner attempted to solve the problem by acquiring a wet vacuum. This didn’t help much at all, and the problem proceeded to get worse. This brought the homeowner to the internet, where they found us, TC Hafford Basement Systems. They gave us a call and we sent our a representative to take a look and give a free estimate.
The homeowner then decided what work they wanted done and we got to work! We dug out a sump for the homeowner, this is a location where all the water entering the basement will gather. Then we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This pump will then take this gathered water and force it up and out of the basement. The water travels through a PVC pipe, on the outside of the house, we attached an IceGuard piece to this PVC discharge line. The IceGuard filter will allow water to continue to be pumped out of the house if the lower end of the discharge line gets clogged by ice or other debris. Now this homeowner will have a much dryer basement.
In an Alfred residence, a homeowner had been having trouble with a crack in his wall. This crack was allowing water to leak into the basement from the outside during rain. The homeowner wanted this taken care of ASAP, and contacted TC Hafford after seeing an ad on the television. We had a representative dispatched to take a look and give a free estimate shortly after being contacted. The homeowner made their decision and we got to work!
To fix the crack in the wall, we started the process of applying FlexiSpan. FlexiSpan is a flexible three layer material used to keep out water and contort to any shifting of a crack. The first layer is a sealant sprayed into the crack. This first layer is then covered with a foam pad. This pad holds the sealant in place as well as allowing for the flexibility of the whole structure. Finally the foam is covered with the final layer, which is another layer of sealant. This three layer system locks out any moisture trying to enter through the crack. This crack is no longer something this homeowner needs to worry about.
A homeowner in Limerick was having water enter their basement through the floor and walls. This was immediately an issue for the homeowner, because they were using their basement for storage. This problem needed to be resolved, and they called TC Hafford to get the job done!
As soon as our crew got to the home, they started work on the basement. First, the perimeter of the basement floor needed to be dug up. This was to make way for our WaterGuard piping system. This system will catch any water entering through the walls or floor before it reaches out towards the center of the basement. Once the WaterGuard system was in place, we installed the SuperSump sump pump. This pump will take the collected water from the piping system and force it up through PVC to the outside. Lastly, we attached an UltraSump backup battery, to ensure the pump continues to pump water even if the home loses electricity. Now this homeowner has a perfectly dry basement to use however they please.
A homeowner in Cape Neddick needed a way to dry out the air in their basement. The moisture was starting to cause the basement to smell. After receiving the call, we had a representative head out to take a look and to give a free estimate. After going over the options, the homeowner chose to have a SaniDry XP installed. This is a dehumidifier that is large enough to take the air that has been dried, and push it out into the further reaches of the basement. All the while sucking in new moist air to be dried. This basement will now remain dry, removing the smell entirely.
A homeowner in Parsonsfield was in need of some waterproofing in their basement. Their son had mentioned TC Hafford Basement Systems to them, and they contacted us to get the job done. After being contacted by the homeowner, we got to work!
We started by excavating the interior perimeter of the basement. This makes room for our WaterGuard system to be installed. This is a system of pipes used to collect water as it enters the basement through either the walls or floor. Then we added a TrenchDrain piece underneath a door leading out of the basement on the back of the house. This drain will collect any and all water trying to enter underneath the door. These pipes are connected to the existing sump system to remove the water from the basement. Now this homeowner no longer needs to worry about water in their basement.
A homeowner in Kittery was having a hard time with their sump pump. They had a system in place to keep water out of their basement, yet water would still gather. Something needed to be done about this, and after hearing about TC Hafford from a satisfied customer, they made the call. Once our representative took a look at the basement, we had a crew get to work replacing the old system
The interior perimeter of the basement was dug out to allow for us to install our WaterGuard piping system. This is a pipe that catches all water entering the basement through the walls or floor. Once in the pipe, the water travels to the sump. Since the old sump pump the homeowner had was no longer doing its job, we replaced it with a SuperSump sump pump. We then attached an UltraSump backup batter for the SuperSump. This will guarantee the water is pushed out of the basement even in the harshest conditions; such as a power outage. Now this homeowner rests easy with a dry basement.
Molly in Cornish was experiencing trouble with her crawlspace. It would collect puddles of water whenever it would rain. This needed to be addressed as soon as possible. Soon after seeing an ad on television, Molly gave TC Hafford a call. We had a crew out in no time to get to work!
The interior perimeter of the crawlspace was covered with a Drainage Matting to prevent the water from making its way toward the center of the crawlspace. We then lined the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This is a clean sheet of plastic that encapsulates the entire crawlspace, save for the ceiling. This will lock out any and all water trying to enter the crawlspace. Though moisture still might be able to sneak into the crawlspace through other means. This is why we installed a SaniDry CX Dehumidifier. This dehumidifier will maintain a dry atmosphere within the crawlspace. Preventing any mold growth or structural damage to the house.
A homeowner in Moody had a sump pump that would regularly back up. It just wasn’t powerful enough to push out all of the water that gathered in the basement. Needing to upgrade to a better sump pump, he contacted TC Hafford Basement Systems after seeing an ad for us on his television. We gave him a free estimate, then we got to work!
Upon arriving at the home, we needed to remove the old pump from the sump. After making space, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump into where the old sump was. The TripleSafe pump houses three separate pumps which each have a purpose. The first is the primary pump, which is used for most of the water. The secondary pump is for when the primary pump can’t handle all the water or malfunctions for any reason. The third and final pump is battery-operated and is for when the power goes out in the house. The TripleSafe will keep this basement dry, no matter the amount of rain. To finish this project, on the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe piece to the discharge coming from the sump pump. This IceGuard will allow water to escape the pipe should the lower end of the line become blocked by ice or other debris. Worrying about their sump pump is now a worry of the past for this homeowner!
A couple in West Newfield was experiencing flooding in their crawlspace during heavy rains. This moisture could lead to not only damage, but mold growth; which could then cause health issues for the inhabitants. The water was coming in through the dirt floor rather easily, and the two needed a way to hold back the moisture that was entering. They soon found the answer to their problem online, with TC Hafford Basement Systems. We heard from them shortly after and had a representative take a look at the crawlspace to give a free estimate on what we could do and how much it would cost. The couple decided on what work they wanted done, and our crew started the project!
We installed a SmartSump sump pump into the crawlspace to pump out any water that found its way inside. Next, we laid a Drainage Matting in around the inside edge of the crawlspace to hold back moisture coming in through the walls, allowing for it to drain back into the soil. Finally, we encapsulated the entire crawlspace, save for the ceiling, with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner completely locks out moisture trying to come in through the floor or walls. Any moisture coming in this way will now never see the interior of the crawlspace. Now this couple has a moisture free crawlspace and peace of mind!
A homeowner from East Waterboro was having problems with his sump pump. Water would regularly come back up through the holes in the top of the pump, and flood his basement. Needing solve this problem before putting his house on the market, the homeowner heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems through a realtor and contacted us the next day. We had a representative over to the home in no time to inspect the basement and give a free estimate of what we could do to stop the flooding.
We got to work by removing the old sump pump. This old pump wasn’t able to keep up with the amount of water needing to be pumped out of the basement. To keep water out of the basement, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump in the sump. The TripleSafe contains three pumps, each serving its own purpose. The first pump is the primary pump, used for the bulk of the water. The second pump is there in case the primary pump fails or cannot handle the water. Finally, the third pump is a battery backup pump, in case of a power outage. The TripleSafe sump pump will maintain a dry basement for this homeowner, no matter how hard the rain falls!
A couple in York Harbor was experiencing trouble with moisture in their basement. Water was leaking in through the walls and floor, and because the homeowner was looking to put their home on the market, they needed to stop this leak if they wanted to sell for their full asking price. They were soon in touch with TC Hafford Basement Systems to get the job done. After giving the homeowners their free estimate, we got to work! We began by excavating the interior perimeter of the basement floor. This allowed us to install our WaterGuard pipe system, which was covered over with loose rocks and cement. This conceals the system inside the floor without diminishing functionality. The WaterGuard will catch the water entering the basement through the walls or floor, guiding it out of the basement through the sump. Now the homeowners can put their home on the market for full price, with a dry basement!
Tony from Ocean Park was in the market for getting his crawlspace vapor barrier redone. It wasn’t done properly the first time, and was allowing moisture to accumulate within the crawlspace. Tony got online to find his answer, and he found it with TC Hafford Basement Systems. He contacted us and we had a representative out at the home in no time to give Tony his free estimate. He selected what work he wanted done and we got started!
First, we laid a Drainage Matting around the interior perimeter of the crawlspace. This will hold back most of the moisture entering the crawlspace and give it time to drain out through the floor. On top of the Drainage Matting, we covered the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This liner will ensure nearly all of the moisture coming in through the walls or floor are kept locked underneath it, not allowing for water to gather within the crawlspace. Finally, to guarantee a dry atmosphere within the crawlspace, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This will cycle the moist air until all that is left is dry, healthy air. Now Tony has a functioning vapor barrier and a dry crawlspace, thanks to CleanSpace!
A homeowner in York had noticed cracks that formed in her basement walls. These cracks had been letting in moisture from the surrounding soil, and allowing for water to pool up in the basement. This needed to stop. The homeowner started asking around for how to go about resolving this issue, and she got pointed in the direction of TC Hafford Basement Systems by a previous customer. She soon gave us a call and we had a representative inspect the cracks and give her a free estimate of the repair cost. She gave us the “go ahead” and we got started!
To fix these cracks, we needed to cover them over with something that could not only hold back water, but something that could stay over the crack for extend portions of time. This meant we needed to use FlexiSpan to seal the cracks. FlexiSpan is requires a three-step process to install. First, we filled the crack with a sealant. This sealant will act as the primary barrier for moisture and hold back most of the water, while also conforming to the crack. Next, the first layer is covered over with a foam matting. The mat further prevents moisture from passing, while giving the overall structure of the FlexiSpan its flexible nature. Finally, the foam mat is covered with a second layer of sealant. This locks out moisture while firmly holding the structure in place, flat against the wall. The FlexiSpan will now keep out any moisture trying to leak in through these cracks, while being able to conform to the crack should the basement walls shift in any way. Now this homeowner has whole walls and a dry basement thanks to FlexiSpan!
A homeowner in Biddeford Pool was experiencing trouble with water leaking into their crawlspace. The water would pool up on the floor and evaporate into the air, creating a very moist atmosphere within the crawlspace. This was the perfect environment for mold growth and the homeowner needed something done about this before it got worse. They soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems, and got in contact with us right away. We gave them their free estimate then got to work!
We began by lining the inside of the crawlspace with a Drainage Matting. This held back the water entering the crawlspace and allowed it time to drain back into the soil. Next, we encapsulated the crawlspace with CleanSpace. This liner will completely lock out any moisture that might make it by the Drainage Mat. Finally, to guarantee mold growth is stopped entirely, we installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This dehumidifier cycles through the air in the crawlspace, drying it out. Now this homeowner has a dry crawlspace, and systems in place to maintain a healthy atmosphere.
A homeowner in Cape Porpoise had an exceptionally moist basement. Alongside a damp crawlspace, the homeowner needed professional help to keep this water out. The homeowner was soon introduced to TC Hafford Basement Systems. We were exactly the company he was looking for, and he contacted us right away. We gave him a free estimate and dispatched our crew to get to work!
We began work in the crawlspace of the home. To keep the moisture from finding its way into the space, we encapsulated the crawlspace with a CleanSpace Liner. This is a sheet of plastic that covers every surface in the crawlspace, except for the ceiling, locking out any leaking moisture. We then installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier in the crawlspace to remove any moisture from the air, keeping the atmosphere dry. Moving on to the basement, we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will take any water trying to gather in the basement and push it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Finally, we attached an UltraSump backup batter to the SuperSump. This will keep the pump going even when the power in the home goes out.
Now this homeowner will have a dry crawlspace and basement in any weather.
Dave from Parsonsfield was having trouble with his sump. Water wasn’t draining properly through his sump, and it was pooling up in his basement. Worried about water damage, Dave searched online for a solution. He soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems, and after a little research, Dave knew we were the perfect company to help solve his troubles. He called us shortly after and we had a representative over at the home to give Dave his free estimate. He chose what work he wanted done and we got to work!
We began by digging out more of the sump to make room for a pump to be put in. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump in the old sump. This will take the water entering the sump and force it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Attached to this pump, we added an UltraSump backup battery to keep the SuperSump working even if the home loses power. On the outside of the home, we connected an IceGuard pipe to the discharge line. This special piece of pipe will allow water to continue to leave the basement even if the lower end of the pipe becomes blocked in any way. Finally, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier in the basement. This dehumidifier will take in the air immediately surrounding it and dry out any moisture. It then pushes the air out into the basement, forcing more moist air back towards the SaniDry. This cycle continues until the basement air is completely dry.
Now Dave has a dry basement floor and healthy air circulating his basement. Water damage is a worry of the past!
A homeowner in Kittery Point was having trouble with their foundation letting water into their basement. Needing professional help with this issue, they started to ask around for ways to stop the water. They soon got referred to TC Hafford Basement Systems, who they contacted right away to receive their free estimate. The homeowner decided on what work they wanted done, and we dispatched our crew to get to work!
We began by digging out the current floor of the basement. This allowed us to pour a new slab of concrete. This new basement floor would hold up against water much more effectively than the previous stone floor the homeowner had. We left a sump in the slab to allow us easy installation of a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will collect the water gathering in the basement, and push it up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. On the exterior of the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe piece to the discharge line. The IceGuard will allow water to continue to flow from the pump, even if the lower end of the pipe becomes blocked by ice or other debris.
This homeowner now has a dry basement with a fresh slab, that will remain dry for years to come, thanks to SuperSump!
A homeowner in Kennebunk was having trouble with their sump pump they had in their basement. It was able to handle light amounts of water, but once it started really raining, the pump would back up and flood the basement. This was an immediate problem for the homeowner, as they used their basement for storage, so they needed a way to stop this before too much more flooding happened. This is when they called TC Hafford Basement Systems. We had a representative head to the home shortly after to give the homeowner a free estimate. They chose what they wanted done, and we had our crew get to work!
We had to start by removing the old sump pump. It wasn’t going to be needed anymore, and could be thrown out. We then installed our SuperSump sump pump in the old sump hole. This sump will be able to handle any amount of water coming in from heavy rains. We attached an UltraSump backup battery onto the SuperSump to keep it functional even when the power goes out. Now even in the heaviest storms, this new sump system will remain functional. This homeowner no longer has a faulty sump or a wet basement to worry about!
A homeowner in Saco was having trouble with water leaking into their basement through a crack in the wall. This crack was allowing enough water into the basement to form pools on the floor. The homeowner, looking for a way to put an end to this, soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a friend. They called us the next day, and we gave them their free estimate. They then decided on what they wanted done, and we started work on the basement.
We needed to seal the crack, and the best way for us to do this was to apply FlexiSpan to the crack. To start, we filled the crack with a sealant, this is the first line of the defense against water entering the basement through the crack. We then covered over the sealant with a foam mat, which give the FlexiSpan its flexible nature. Finally, we applied a second layer of sealant over the top of the foam. This holds everything in place, and forms the water tight seal, locking out any moisture trying to enter the crack. This FlexiSpan will ensure this homeowners basement will remain dry, safe from any water that would have previously entered through the crack.
A homeowner in Wells would regularly gain moisture within their basement during heavy rains. This water seemed to enter through the walls and floor, as there was no other obvious entrance as far as the homeowner could tell. Needing a way to keep their basement dry, the homeowner searched for a solution. He soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems. He gave us a call and we dispatched a representative to take a look at the basement. We gave the homeowner a free estimate of cost and they selected what they wanted done. We sent in our crew and got to work!
We began by digging up the inside perimeter of the basement floor. This allowed us room to lay our WaterGuard piping system around the basement. Once in place, we covered it over with loose rocks and cement. This concealed it, without hindering functionality. The WaterGuard pipes will capture water as it tries to enter the basement through what is known as hydrostatic pressure. This is when there is enough water in the surrounding soil to force water in through even the cement foundation. Once captured by the WaterGuard, the water is guided out of the basement through a drain. Next, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier. This will maintain a dry atmosphere within the basement by cycle through the damp air, removing any moisture.
With these two systems in place, this homeowner will have a dry, healthy basement for years to come!
A homeowner in Old Orchard Beach was having trouble with their sump pump. During heavy rains, the pump would be overwhelmed by the water and allow it to pool up inside the basement, flooding it. The homeowner wanted this to end, so they asked around and soon heard about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a friend. We were just the company this homeowner needed, and they called us right away. We set up a meeting with the homeowner, and gave them their free estimate. They chose what they wanted and our crew was dispatched!
We removed the old sump pump to begin. It was serving no further purpose and was disposed of properly. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump in the sump. This sump pump is capable of pumping 2,650 gallons of water per hour. This will be able to handle any amount of rain water that could possibly fall and gather in the basement. This new SuperSump will easily maintain a dry basement for this homeowner. They won’t be having any more flooding problems in the future!
A homeowner in North Berwick was having trouble with their sump pump. Even though they had one installed a few years ago, their basement was starting to gather water again. Their pump was malfunctioning. Seeking a way to remedy this, the homeowner saw TC Hafford Basement Systems on their television and called us right away. We sent out our representative to look at the basement and give the homeowner their free estimate. They selected which options they wanted and we got to work!
We began by removing the old sump pump. This was disposed of properly, and left the sump with an open slot for a new pump. We then installed a SuperSump sump pump in the sump. This sump will easily be able to handle any amount of water trying to gather in the basement, being able to pump 2,650 gallons per hour. To maintain a dry basement in any weather, we attached an UltraSump backup battery to the SuperSump. This will keep the pump operating even in such storms that the power in the home goes out. The water leaving the basement exits through a PVC discharge line. On the exterior off the home, we attached an IceGuard pipe to this discharge line. This specially designed pipe will allow water to continue to flow from the line even if the lower end of the pipe becomes blocked by any debris.
These systems operating together will maintain a dry basement in any condition. The homeowner no longer needs to worry about a failing sump pump.
A homeowner in Hollis Center was having issue with water leaking into their basement through the walls and floor. The water achieved this through a phenomenon known as hydrostatic pressure. This is when the amount of water in the surrounding soil is so great, it pressed its way through the cement foundation. To find a solution, the homeowner logged online and searched. They soon found TC Hafford Basement Systems and called us to receive their free estimate. They agreed to what work they wanted done and we got started.
We began by excavating the interior perimeter of the basement floor. This new trench made room for us to lay down our WaterGuard system. This system is then hidden under the floor with loose rocks and cement to ensure functionality. The WaterGuard will capture water as it comes in through the effects of hydrostatic pressure. This water will then be guided to the sump. Within the sump, we installed a SuperSump sump pump. This pump will force all of the water up and out of the basement through a PVC discharge line. Finally, we attached an UltraSump backup batter to the SuperSump. This will maintain the pumping of water even without power in the home.
With these three systems working together, the homeowner will no longer experience a flooding basement. They will maintain a dry basement for years to come.
Kevin of Acton was experiencing trouble with water entering their basement through cracks in their basement walls. He needed a way to seal up these cracks, and sought professional help to get the job done. After hearing about TC Hafford Basement Systems from a family friend, Kevin called us right away! We had our representative head to the home to give a free estimate. Kevin chose what work he wanted done and we got started.
To begin with the solution, we filled the cracks with an initial layer of sealant. The sealant was then covered over with a foam matting. This matting will form the backbone off the final structure. This matting is finally covered with a second layer of sealant to completely lock out any moisture trying to enter through the cracks. This finished structure is known as FlexiSpan, and the foam matting gives the overall structure a flexible nature. Allowing it to bend and contort, should the walls shift in any way.
Now with FlexiSpan covering the cracks, Kevin will no longer need to worry about water entering his basement!
A homeowner in Ogunquit was experiencing trouble with their basement. Whenever it would rain, water would gather in one of the corners of their basement. They needed a sump pump to remove this water, and after being referred by a family friend, knew TC Hafford Basement Systems could provide exactly that. They called us to set up a meeting, and our representative was at the home in no time to inspect the basement and give the homeowner their free estimate. They selected which pump they wanted and we got to work!
We began by digging out a sump in the basement floor. This would allow us to install the pump where most of the water gathered. We then installed a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe is composed of three pumps, one primary for the bulk of the water, a secondary in case the primary fails for any reason, and finally, a battery powered backup pump in case the power goes out. With this sump pump in place, a flooding basement is a thing of the past for this homeowner!
A homeowner in Bar Mills had a basement that would always gather a pool of water during heavy rains. Fearing the problem worsening over time, the homeowner wanted to stop this before it could get any worse. After a quick internet search, they found TC Hafford Basement Systems. They called us up and we had our representative inspect the basement to give them their free estimate. After they selected what work they wanted done, we got to work!
To take in the water leaking into the basemen, we dug out a sump in the floor of the basement. Within this sump, we installed a TripleSafe sump pump. This product is composed of three separate pumps. The primary and secondary handle the bulk of the water, the secondary only turning on when the primary fails for any reason. The third pump is a battery backup pump, activating when the power in the home goes out. We then installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier to remove the moisture from the air within the space.
This homeowner now no longer needs to worry about water pooling up on his basement floor. Even without power, his new sump pump will continue to evacuate water.
