    Customer Testimonial

              Mike spent quite sometime shopping around for a solution to his wet basement problems before he finally made up his mind and called in the experts at Tar Heel Basement Systems, a year after he first visited our website. According to him, Tar Heel was the obvious choice for many reasons. Their website answered many of his questions and the solution made sense to him. He knew by them that they were the local experts in waterproofing.

Basement Systems has been successfully fixing leaky basements for more than two decades, through a network of over 300 dealers across the U.S., Canada, U.K. and Ireland.

    Customer Testimonial

              The basement in Margaret C.'s Madison, NC home used to leak during heavy rains. The crawl space was just like most typical crawl spaces in North Carolina: dirt-floored, moldy and humid.After watching Tar Heel Basement Systems commercials on TV she decided to call the company.When our system design specialist came to take a look at the problems, she also mentioned that the chimney was pulling away from the house, and was pleasantly surprised when Tar Heel Basement Systems offered her a solution for that problem as well.Our system design specialist proposed installing a new drainage system in the basement and crawl space, and a powerful sump pump system to collect ground water and divert it away from the foundation. The crawl space was then sealed to keep ground moisture and humid outside air from entering the space. A dehumidifier was installed to control moisture in the area year-round. The tilted chimney was lifted and restored to its original position with the use of helical piers.Margaret is really impressed with the customer care provided by the company all through the process, from sale to installation and beyond. She is also so happy with the results that she is eager to share her experience with others, and have been referring us to neighbors and friends ever since!

              This church in Lansing, NC had terrible basement flooding problems. During heavy rains they would get up to 18 inches of water in the basement, and when the water was finally gone, they had to deal with the aftermath: musty smells and mold problems. Ed decided that it was time to fix it once and for all. After seeing Tar Heel Basement System billboard advertising, they made the call that would forever change the way the congregation had been using the basement.Ed was really impressed with the inspection and the thorough explanation provided by the system design specialist. He knew then and there that he had called the right company from the job.At first, they only wanted the water problem solved, which was accomplished when Tar Heel installed a WaterGuard interior drainage system, and a good sump pump system. "We've had all the rain and snow this winter and we haven't had one problem yet!"Seeing the great results after the waterproofing system was installed, they decided to call Tar Heel again, this time to finish the walls and floor of the basement, transforming a previously unused area of the building, into useful rooms for the congregation -- including carpeted rooms for the children."We're just pleased. Very pleased. The whole church is pleased!" explains Ed. He's been recommending Tar Heel to others in the community ever since. "I don't think you'd do nobody wrong! Everything has just been wonderful!"

Negative-side Sealant

This involves "painting" the basement walls and floors with a waterproof coating of cement that's meant to seal out the moisture.

It applies directly to the concrete's surface with a brush or roller and is often applied when a homeowner is preparing for basement finishing.

Exterior Excavation

This involves digging out the entire perimeter of the basement, installing a new drain, and possibly adding a waterproof coating on the walls.

This type of installation has been used for many decades—a drain of this type is generally installed when the home is built.

Interior Baseboard System

Installs on top of the basement floor with a drain that runs along the basement walls. Collects water and sends it to a sump pump system.

No jackhammering is required, and the installation is safe for a monolithic basement floor.

Interior Subfloor Drain

Installs underneath the basement floor, with a drain that runs along the basement walls. Collects water and sends it to a sump pump system.

The system is easy to service, and it can collect water leaking from the walls or windows as well.
