An old waterproofing system (installed by another contractor) clogged over time, causing hydrostatic pressure to build during heavy rains, resulting in cracks along the basement wall. Intruding water collect in the basement allowing the wall cracks to grow larger over time. The homeowners needed an immediate, permanent fix that would address both of their concerns.
Tar Heel Basement Systems removed the previously failed drainage system and installed the WaterGuard Drainage System throughout the entire perimeter of the basement, sitting above the home's footing to ensure there dirt and sediment would not clog the system. The team installed CleanSpace along the basement walls, providing sightly relief to the paint chipped walls. The next step was addressing the wall failure by installing Geo-Lock Channel Anchors providing the wall with immediate stabilization.
The basement in this Pinnacle, NC home had waterproofing and wall repair project completed by Tar Heel Basement Systems in 2012. Wall Anchors were installed along the bowing wall to stabilize the wall, and a full perimeter WaterGuard Drainage System was installed to keep moisture out.

The basement is now bright and beautiful for years to come!
This Winston Salem, NC homeowner called Tar Heel Basement Systems after spotting these stair-step cracks on the outside of the home.

The end result was a smaller crack and a stabilized wall.

This Winston Salem homeowner noticed a horizontal crack on the interior wall of the basement and called Tar Heel Basement Systems for a foundation repair. The crack was caused by hydrostatic pressure, which is when the soil surrounding the outside of the basement wall builds up water and puts pressure on the wall, bowing it and eventually cracking it. This type of foundation issue is known as basement wall failure, and the Tar Heel foundation crew was able to use Geo-lock Wall anchors, which are used to hold a wall in place and potentially straighten over time. The foundation team was able to slightly close the foundation crack and permanently stabilize the basement wall.
