Customer Testimonial“Bonnie C. from Winston Salem, NC noticed that the gap between the wood floor and the stone hearth of her fireplace was about two inches wide. She sealed the gap to prevent heat loss but was extremely worried when the seal came completely apart, indicating serious foundation movement. She then began to shop for a solution and as a savvy homeowner; she called three different companies to see what they had to offer and to obtain quotes for the repair work necessary. Tar Heel Basement Systems was among these companies, and Will Blake, one of the owners personally inspected her home. He thoroughly examined the situation and aided by pictures and a presentation, explained to Bonnie exactly what the problem was and the options to fix it. She was very pleased with the knowledgeable, professional and courteous treatment she received which allowed her to make an informed decision. After the consultation visit Bonnie chose Tar Heel Basement Systems to repair her home’s foundation. According to her, they had solutions no one else offered that made sense to her. They also gave her the best price. She was even more impressed when the production crew came to perform the actual work. Not only did they effectively lift and restore the chimney to its original position by the closing the gap between the floor and the hearth; they took every necessary step to do the repair work without disturbing the yard and her home. According to Bonnie, right after completion, you wouldn’t know that her home just went through a major foundation repair procedure. “This is by far the best home improvement experience I ever had with any company” – she says. “I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing help with a foundation issue, a chimney issue, a water issue, a leak. I would most highly recommend Tar Heel Basement Systems above anyone else.””Bonnie C.

"I would most highly recommend Tarheel Basement Systems to anyone with a foundation problem and if you can,..." Read Full TestimonialBonnie C. of Winston Salem, NC
Customer Testimonial“I bought an all exterior log and stone house in 2004 and the realtor disclosed that the massive stone chimney was leaning. The lean was not visibly obvious and there were no signs of mortar cracking so I felt secure that the problem was minimal. In 2007 we had the first of a series of earth quakes and mortar cracks developed in my foundation, and the chimney definitely shifted causing gaps between it and my house at the exterior and interior places where wood met stone. I had to patch all of these gaps to prevent extreme heat and A/C loss and reduce the number of animals coming inside. In 2012 we had a long dry spell which caused the red clay to shrink followed by a long rainy period where the ground got saturated and my chimney moved even further, and actually separated from my patches both inside and out. I contacted a series of foundation repair companies and masonry repair companies to assess the best plan to correct the problem most affordably. Long story short I chose Tarheel Basement Systems because of William Blake's obvious professionalism and honesty, and the overall professionalism of the people calling me regarding the company from their home office. Other foundation repair sales people attempted to scare me into paying higher amounts of money than were reasonable, and Mr. Blake did not. Mr. Blake treated me with respect, and honored the fact that I could actually understand the issues. The repair Mr. Blake recommended was one no other company mentioned, and made the most sense! Tarheel Basement Systems proposed using "push piers" to support the edges of the chimney footers and at the very least stop the movement for my lifetime, and possible even push the chimney back into the position it was when I made the first attempts at patching the gaps. Today Josh, Edward, and Jake arrived to do the work, and were the most polite, professional, and earnest work team I have had the pleasure of knowing. They explained everything they were going to do in advance, and brought me out to witness some issues they encountered which were explained to me in advance were possible so they could make sure I was aware the issues existed. We planned in advance that they may go as deep as 36 feet before hitting bedrock but it turned out to be over 60 feet, and they wanted me to know before I got surprised by a higher bill since they had to use almost 3 times the number of steel pipes we expected. All of this was explained by Mr. Blake originally and covered by the contract of not only Tarheel Basements, but also Ram Jack and others, so I was not surprised when they brought me out to witness the need to use many more push piers than hoped. Josh, Edward, and Jake eventually hit bedrock so they had enough pressure to actually move the chimney back into position making this a very positive result for me as the person who no longer needs to patch her wall and floors when the chimney moves! I would most highly recommend Tarheel Basement Systems to anyone with a foundation problem and if you can, ask for Josh, Edward, and Jake by name! They were amazingly efficient, effective, professional, and polite.”Bonnie C.

Bowing Foundation Walls
Foundation walls begin to bow and buckle inward when the force against them exceeds their ability to withstand this pressure.
Failing foundation walls will crack and leak, and if you have a finished basement, they can lead to cracks in the finished walls. Bowing walls may eventually collapse and should be addressed right away.
We repair bowing walls from the outside with our Geo-Lock Foundation Wall Anchor System.
When outside access is not possible, we recommend our PowerBrace I-Beam System.
Our solutions will do more than simply stop inward movement -- they can also be used to straighten the walls back to their original position.

Foundation settlement occurs when the soils underneath a foundation are unable to support the weight of the structure that's resting on them.
A settling foundation will mean a great deal of damage to your home -- including cracked foundation walls, cracked drywall, doors and windows out of square, and tilting chimneys. As foundation damage goes unaddressed, it will become more difficult to repair.
Foundation Supportworks'™ line of foundation piers are a great option for repairing sinking structures of all types.
These sturdy, corrosion-resistant piers can stabilize and lift your foundation back to a stable position -- permanently!

Sinking Floors Over Crawl Spaces
Floors over crawl spaces begin to sink in three scenarios: When there are too few supports, when the supports begin to sink into the ground, and when the structural wood holding up your floor begins to rot and grow mold.
When crawl space structures experience settlement, the entire home above can begin to show damage. Drywall will crack, doors will stick and floors will become uneven. If the crawl space is damaged by mold, there may also be moldy, musty odors upstairs.
Rugged steel supports like Foundation Supportworks'™ SmartJack Crawl Space Support System can quickly restore your structure. If your structure was sinking due to mold and rot, your crawl space should also be dehumidified and encapsulated to prevent further damage.
