This Yadkinville, NC home has a large concrete porch that wraps around the house. Over time, the porch's concrete slab settled, or sunk, nearly 2 inches.

An older Winston Salem, NC home had problems with water intrusion along the perimeter walls and exposed soil in the crawl space. Tar Heel Basement Systems crew installed EZ-Flo drainage pipe around the perimeter walls that connected to the SmartSump sump pump ensuring that all water intrusion would be automatically pumped out of the crawl space and away from the home.
The crew also installed the CleanSpace 20 mil. vapor barrier throughout the crawl space floor, cinder block walls and around the support piers to separate the home from the earth completely. Humidity was prevented from entering the crawl space by sealing all crawl space vents.
This homeowner now has a bright and healthy crawl space!
This dentist office in Mount Airy, NC has a 6,000 sq. ft. crawl space below it. During the construction process of this commercial building, Contractor, Lee Mills, hired Tar Heel Basement Systems to encapsulate the crawl space in order to create a healthy environment for the offices above. Tar Heel Basement Systems installed CleanSpace 20 mil. liner, SilverGlo wall insulation and 2 SaniDry CX dehumidifiers to create a finished and conditioned crawl space for this growing business.
This Winston Salem, NC home that was built in the 1960's was having structural concerns on 1 exterior basement wall. The wall had a large horizontal and stair-step crack that was causing the cinder block and brick to bow out. The homeowners called Tar Heel Basement Systems to provide them an appropriate solution to stabilize the wall.
Tar Heel Basement Systems foundation crew installed 3 PowerBraces along the bowing wall. The patented PowerBrace system effectively stabilized the wall; each PowerBrace is zinc-plated for resistance to corrosion. Next, the crew installed BrightWall behind the PowerBraces, a plastic paneling that is fastened to the wall while leaving a bright, clean look and stopping water vapor from permeating the basement wall.
This Winston Salem, NC homeowner is very pleased with the finished look now that her wall is stabilized and her basement is beautiful thanks to Tar Heel Basement Systems!
This Winston Salem, NC home's exterior basement walls had major structural concerns. Horizontal, vertical and stair-step cracks were visible throughout all of the cinder block basement walls.
Tar Heel Basement Systems installed (12) CarbonArmor Straps. Carbon Armor is a very high tensile strength material that is almost impossible to stretch. The CarbonArmor system is the only fabric carbon fiber product to code. Since carbon armor installations don't require any outside digging, they are viable when there is limited access on the exterior of the home. CarbonArmor's low-profile allows for easy installation access behind plumbing lines and electrical conduit. The system was easily concealed with BrightWall. BrightWall is a plastic paneling that is fastened to the basement walls and provides a clean, bright look while preventing water vapor from permeating your walls.
Now this Winston Salem, NC homeowner can rest assured that her home's structure is stable and safe, and her basement received a cosmetic lift thanks to Tar Heel Basement Systems!
This crawl space in Lewisville, NC had some major moisture issues. The relative humidity levels were much higher than is recommended for a crawl space, which can lead to mold growth, wood rot, and insulation to sag and fall. The first problem was the insufficient 6 mil. vapor barrier that was partially covering the dirt floor. The moisture from the exposed earth is one of the contributing factors to this damp crawl space.
Tar Heel Basement Systems removed the old plastic liner, pulled the sagging, mold infested floor insulation and installed a complete crawl space encapsulation. The Tar Heel team started with lining the interior crawl space walls with SilverGlo insulation panels. Next, they installed 20 mil. thick CleanSpace liner along the crawl space floor, up the walls and around the piers. Additionally, all 15 vents were sealed permanently and a SaniDry CX dehumidifier was installed. In order to capture any groundwater and prevent a plumbing leak flood, a SmartSump with a remote WaterWatch alarm were installed in this Lewisville crawl space.
Now this homeowner can rest easy knowing the crawl space below their feet is dry, healthy and mold-free!
This Southern Triad homeowner became victim to bad contractors who over promised and ultimately became part of the problem instead of a solution. After having multiple contractors working on her home over the span of 10 years and never resolving her issues permanently, she turned to Tar Heel Basement Systems for reliable help.
System Design Specialist, Trevor Lord, completed a full inspection of the crawl space. Trevor was tasked with designing the proper solution for this homeowner’s nightmare--fixing ground water seepage and controlling the active moisture which will prevent mold, wood rot and odors. Tar Heel Basement Systems was ready for the challenge of meeting all of this homeowner's expectations!
Since this crawl space was in dire need of an extensive amount of work, this job took a couple of installation crews to complete the tasks. Foreman, Adam Blake, and crew member, Lorenzo, installed new crawl space supports, and replaced the rotting subfloor, bands and floor joists. The first crew also had to install a steel beam running parallel to the girder, due to the girder “rolling’’ and being too unstable for the new SmartJack supports. The second crew did a complete energy-saving encapsulation; installing SilverGlo wall insulation, CleanSpace liner and SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This will lower humidity levels, preventing mold growth and the SmartSump sump pump will eliminate ground water seepage.
Tar Heel Basement Systems was able to completely transform this scary, dirty crawl space to a clean, conditioned storage space.
This walk in crawl space in the western part of Winston Salem, NC showed signs of mold growth and a musty smell that was affecting the living area in the home. The homeowner had to constantly run a dehumidifier in the living area of the home in hopes of keeping moisture levels low to prevent mold growth. After a failed attempt of keeping the crawl space dry, the homeowner called Tar Heel Basement Systems to evaluate their problems.
System Designed Specialist, Craig Sechrist, immediately noticed the concerns and provided the perfect solution to keep this walk-in crawl space dry and prevent mold growth. Tar Heel Basement Systems' crew installed the CleanSpace Encapsulation system, (an antimicorbial liner that prevents mold growth), Sani Dry CX de-humifier, and the SmartSump sump pump.
Foreman, Scott Ledford, and his crew transformed this crawl space into a usable, healthy, energy efficient space.
This beautiful man-made pond in Trinity, North Carolina had a retaining wall that had begun to bow in towards the water. The homeowner loves his pond so much that he wanted to pull it back up to a secure position and keep it from bowing any further.
Systems design specialist Sam Agnew recommended the use of 10 Foundation Supportworks Geo-Lock Wall Anchors to correct this issue. Josh Watson and his team finished this project in two days, by drilling the anchor rods underneath the driveway. The earth between the two anchor plates helped to pull the retaining wall blocks back up and secure them in place.
This home in High Point, NC had carpet throughout the living room and laminate florring in the kitchen area. While walking through the house, the homeowner could feel a drop in the floor level in certain areas. This home was about to be put on the market to sell so the home inspector pulled back the carpet to see what the issues was. Sure enough, part of the slab had sunk close to an inch which caused a crack below the carpet and liminate that ran the entire length of the house.
Tar Heel Basement Systems was brought in to stabilize and re-level the concrete floor usinf the PolyLEVEL System from Foundation Supportworks which utilizes high-density polyurethane to raise the slab back to its desired level. This is done by drilling small (penny-sized) holes in the slab then structural grade polymer is injected into the void. Once the void is filled, the expanding properties of the polyurethane allows for an accurate life and leveling of the slab.
This home in High Point, NC had a sinking concrete slab that had dropped more than 2 inches. The homeowner had already tried the mudjacking technique prior to calling Tar Heel Basement Systems, but that was only a temporary fix. Over time, the slab settled once again.
