Water was constantly penetrating the cinder block walls of this crawl space in Winston Salem, NC. Additionally, the the plastic vapor barrier that was laid over the dirt floor did not cover the area completely, allowing moisture from the earth to make its way into the crawl space. The constant dampness and high humidity levels caused the insulation to fall and a musty stagnant odor to develop and mold growth to form on the floor joists.
Tar Heel Basement Systems installed a perimeter drainage system to a TripleSafe Sump Pump, SilverGlo crawl space wall insulation panels and CleanSpace vapor barrier. Once the encapsulation was complete and the vents were sealed, a SaniDry CX air system was hooked up and set to keep the crawl space humidity levels below 55%. By sealing the crawl space completely, this home in Winston Salem is not healthier and mold-free.
This homeowner's one story house in suburban Winston-Salem was experiencing some unfortunate foundation settling. It managed to pull the wall away from the window frame and create a large crack in the side of her brick walled home. With installations of both SmartJacks and Push Piers the crack was almost immediately sealed up as the back right corner of the home was lifted to its original position. Josh Watson and his crew finished this project in two days, left the home looking beautiful and the homeowner ecstatic.
This wet crawlspace had only a basic plastic covering before Tar Heel Basement Systems came in and installed a CleanSpace vapor barrier. Without sealed edges and our reinforced, inorganic CleanSpace cover, do-it-yourself humidity control just doesn't cut it.

Winston-Salem homeowner Beverly S. found herself in a predicament when her basement starting to flood with water. Beverly knew she had to react quickly! After noticing a commercial advertisement by Tar Heel Basement Systems on television, Beverly decided to call them up to come out and inspect her basement.
Beverly was soon met by waterproofing specialist Kent Dunn, who provided recommendations on products that Beverly should consider to save her basement. Kent recommended the installation of the patented TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe is just like it’s name suggests, with the addition of a second pump and a battery backup pump, the TripleSafe is an ideal sump pump for maximum protection. Kent also recommended installing the WaterGuard XL drainage system as well.
With the repairs agreed upon, primary foreman Josh Watson and his crew were called in to install the products. After a quick, one-day installation process, Beverly’s basement was ready for any rainstorm that hits it, thanks to the professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems!
Radon is no laughing matter, causing more than 21,000 lung cancer-related deaths a year, radon should never be overlooked. When Greta F. found her home had elevated levels of radon, she knew she needed to call in an expert to lower the radon levels, or risk putting her life in jeopardy. After being referred to Tar Heel Basement Systems, Greta gave them a call to come out to evaluate her home.
That same week, Greta was met by radon specialist Adam Hill who came to evaluate her radon levels. After the evaluation, Adam recommended that the homeowner install a radon fan. Along with the combination of PVC and a PVC exhaust cap, these solutions would effectively and efficiently suck up the radon and exhaust it out of the home with no threat to her well being!
Adam Hill and his crew returned to install the radon prevention products. After installation of the radon mitigation system, radon should no longer be a source of stress in Greta’s home. With radon causing more deaths per year than drunk driving, radon mitigation should be a no-brainer. Call Tar Heel Basement Systems for your free estimate today!
Lisa D. became worried when she noticed signs that her foundation was settling. Worried about the long-term consequences of the structural issues, Lisa contacted Tar Heel Basement System after coming across an ad in her local newspaper.
Tar Heel sent foundation specialist William Blake to Lisa’s Winston-Salem home. After evaluating the outside of her home, William concluded that Lisa’s foundation had in fact fallen victim to foundation settlement. He explained that the installation of slab pier systems would effectively fix her settlement issues. Slab piers are long steel piers that are installed under the slabs that are settling. These piers are driven deep into the earth in soil that not only can support the homeowner’s home, but also lift the once-settled slabs back to their appropriate level.
Lisa agreed to William’s recommendations and had the slab pier system installed. Primary foreman Josh Watson and his crew were called in to complete the installation process. With the slab piers successfully installed, Lisa can now live peacefully knowing that the days of tripping hazards and not being able to properly close doors are over.
Marlene E. had noticed exterior stair-step cracks in her brick foundation. Additionally there were gaps around the window frame due to the back right corner of the home settling more than an inch. She was concerned that the problem was worsening and wanted to have it fixed as soon as possible.
Tar Heel's systems design specialist Sam Agnew inspected the foundation issues and offered Marlene a solution for the repair. He recommended the installation of Foundation Supportworks push pier system to lift and stabilize the portion of the home that had settled.
Foreman Josh Watson and his crew were able to install, lift and stabilize Marlene's foundation in just one day. With 4 push piers, the home was lifted to instantly seal the 1/2 inch crack in the brick wall and close the window gap. After the work was done, the property was cleaned up and restored to its original condition.
Marlene E. was so pleased with Josh Watson and his crew. Due to her difficulty walking, Josh spent time taking pictures and videos to show to her inside the house while the work was taking place. She felt very involved, in control, and thankful for such a great crew.
