Basement Waterproofing Services & Products
This home in Greensboro was experiencing some high humidity in their large crawlspace that had started to effect the upper floors. A small section of sagging floor was also fixed with a SmartJack installation. This was most likely caused by both the high humidity and extra weight from the upper floor. The CleanSpace Vapor Barrier was installed to cover every inch of dirt on the floor and 3/4 of the brick and block walls. Sealant caulk was also used around piers and walls to create a seamless fit. To keep the area even drier, a SaniDry Dehumidifier was installed and each vent was sealed up and insulated. This home's crawlspace will now be free of moisture, will aid in keeping energy costs down and will create a more comfortable atmosphere all year round.
This Greensboro, NC homeowner's low crawl space had a concrete floor. Despite having a concrete floor, the crawl space had transformed into a damp, mold filled space. The homeowner's COPD was becoming aggravated from the musty smell and mold growth becoming present in the living area of the home. They called Tar Heel Basement Systems for help.
System Design Specialist, Ryan Arnett, devised a plan that would prevent future mold growth by encapsulating the crawl space area. Our mold remediation partner, First Call Restoration, removed the mold spores before the installation of the CleanSpace liner. Thanks for Tar Heel Basement Systems, this homeowner's crawl space is conditioned, creating a healthy environment above.
This home in Greensboro, NC had (4) basement windows that were inefficient and unattractive. The homeowner was concerned that the poorly constructed windows that were currently in the basement would let in cold outside air in the winter, and warm humid air in the summer which causes condensation on the cold surfaces in the basement. Tar Heel Basement Systems installed (4) EverLast Basement Window Inserts in the existing metal window frames of this brick home in Greensboro, NC. The EverLast Basement Window Inserts are a clean-looking energy-efficient solution. It has two panes of Low-E glass, which reduce heat loss by conduction and radiation. A special metallic coating on the inside of the glass functions as a “heat mirror”, allowing visible light in, but reflecting heat. And because it doesn’t open, the window can be sealed up tight to stop air leakage and heat loss by convection.

Our experts use PolyLevel, a superior polyurethane foam. Small holes are drilled in the concrete, the foam is injected and the expanding foam lifts the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, require larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyLevel.

Mark B. had noticed that his crawlspace was a bit too humid for his liking and wanted to know what steps could be taken to remedy his problem. Plants from outside had actually found their way into the crawlspace and were flourishing in the warm and humid environment. Unfortunately for Mark, this environment is also very favorable for mold, insects and pests. The humidity had also wreaked havoc on his joists causing the floor upstairs to bounce and slant.
Systems design specialist Will Blake suggested the use of a CleanSpace vapor barrier, new Everlast crawlspace door, nine SmartJacks and some extra joist support. Matt Johnson and his crew went to work covering every inch of dirt with CleanSpace vapor barrier, wrapping each pier and continuing up the walls. The SmartJacks were placed underneath soft, bouncy or sagging spots in order to bring the floor back up to level. The Everlast crawlspace door will offer a much better fit, sealing the area off from outdoor air.
The customer was extremely happy with the work that was done and the attention that was paid to detail. This home's new crawlspace situation will create a much healthier environment for years to come.
When Carolyn noticed that her home had begun settling and her deck had started to pull away from the foundation, she decided to search for a long-term solution. After an internet search, she came across Tar Heel Basement Systems and called us up for a free estimate. Systems design specialist Will Blake arrived and assessed the situation, recommending eight push piers to lift and hold the home and deck where it needs to be.
Foreman Orville Schoenfield arrived with his crew to install these piers over a week period. Foundation repair is a longer process because of its delicate nature. Preparation for the pier installation included digging holes to reach the footer of the home. Once deep enough, pier columns were driven to reach the solid bedrock. This will provide a new, stronger foundation for the home. After the caps were placed and secured, the home was lifted to the correct position. 8 push piers later, the home and deck were stabilized, leaving the homeowner very happy.
When Jason and Paige noticed that their large crawlspace was accumulating a good amount of humidity that was affecting the rest of the home, they decided the time had come to take action. Systems design specialist Daniel Harrell paid them a visit and recommended a complete CleanSpace Vapor Barrier installation, complete with a SaniDry Dehumidifier, new LawnScape outlet and one SmartJack to support a sagging portion of the floor.
Foreman Steven Lagray completed this job in just three days. Over 1550 square feet of 20 mil CleanSpace vapor barrier was installed from top to bottom. Each seam was sealed with either our CleanSpace tape or sealant caulk to ensure the moisture would not infiltrate the area. Each pier was wrapped and the vents were sealed and insulated. A dehumidifier was also installed to take any other moisture out of the air and drain it out of the home. This combination of products and services will result in a dry crawlspace at a constant temperature. This means that for years to come, no mold will grow and the home will remain comfortable despite the conditions of the outdoor air.
This one story lake house on High Rock Lake was to be come the dream retirement and vacation home for two Greensboro residents. Built in 1955, the original structure was meant to be a fishing cabin but was added on to over the years.
Unfortunately, the foundation of the home had been built incorrectly and had started to sag and slide towards a small creek connecting to the lake. Many builders over the years had simply coped with the sagging and tilting foundation and built around it causing it to seem level when it was quite the opposite. The homeowner had requested estimates from other repair companies but was met with very high prices and hesitant contractors, some even refusing the work altogether.
Tar Heel Basement Systems offered him and his wife a price within his budget and a solution to last him years to come. Systems design specialist Sam Agnew suggested the use of multiple SmartJacks directly underneath the floor in the very weak spots, helical piers around the perimeter of the back of the home that had begun to slide and a push pier on the back right corner. With this mixture of foundation solutions, foreman Josh Watson and his crew lifted the home to a level position and made it significantly safer for habitation.

After hiring other waterproofing companies who produced unsatisfactory solutions to her problem, she found herself having a hard time trusting another contractor. Desperately in need of a permanent fix for her flooding problem, June hesitantly called Tar Heels Basement Systems to come out and give her a free estimate.
Later that same week, June was met by sales representative and waterproofing specialist Daniel Harrell to administer the free estimate. After inspecting June’s crawl space, Daniel gave her his expert recommendations for wet crawl space repair products. Foreman David See and his crew began work on June’s below-grade space with the installation of a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe is exactly what it’s name makes it out to be, with the addition of an additional pump and a backup battery pump, the TripleSafe is an ideal sump pump for all waterproofing situations. Along with this. a WaterGuard XL and Trench Drain were also among the products installed.
