Mrs. West's home that was built in the 1960's was showing signs of settlement and moisture in the unfinished basement. There were visible vertical, horizontal and stair-step cracks on 3 of 4 basement walls and seepage through the walls after heavy downpours. She wanted to take action and fix all of her concerns; she turned to Tar Heel Basement Systems for professional help.

Mrs. West gave Tar Heel Basement Systems a call and an appointment was set for Danny Harrell to asses her basement's concerns. Danny relied on two installation crews to complete execute his design of stabilizing her basement walls while eliminating the basement moisture problem. The first crew began the stabilization process by installing 12 CarbonArmor strips along two of the basement walls and 3 PowerBraces along the bowing wall.

BrightWall paneling system was then installed along all 4 basement walls, giving the basement a bright, white look.

Dugout Crawl Space Gets Some TLC in Western Winston Salem, NC

Mr. Cendella's wife was having allergy problems and they were running a household dehumidifer constantly in the living area of their home. Mr. Cendella attempted to fix the concerns in the cellar himself by remediating the mold, installing new fiberglass insulation and a 6mil. vapor barrier, and a sump pump. They were still dealing with returning mold and water intrusion in their dugout crawl space. Mr. Cendella was in need of professional advice and called Tar Heel Basement Systems.

System Design Specialist, Craig Sechrist, completed a full inspection of the dugout crawl space and provided Mr. Cendella with a permanent solution. 

Tar Heel Basement Systems installation crew was able to restore Mr. Cendella's crawl space by following the four steps to a healthy crawl space. First the crew had to fix the water intrusion problem by removing the old, useless sump pump and installating the SmartSump sump pump. Secondly, the crew isolated the house from the earth by laying down an antimicorbial liner called CleanSpace. Thirdly, the crew sealed all crawl space vents and other outside air leaks. Lastly, the installation crew installed the SaniDry CX dehumidifier to condition the crawl space air.

Tar Heel Basement Systems was able to eliminate Mr. Cendella's worry and leave his crawl space healthy, mold free and energy efficient!

Exterior Foundation Cracks Sealed in Winston-Salem, NC

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.

Foundation Settling Threatened Winston-Salem Homeowner: Slab Piers Saves it!

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.

Radon Mitigation was a No-Brainer for this Winston Salem, NC Homeowner

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.

TripleSafe Sump Pump Provides Guaranteed Protection for Winston-Salem Basement

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!
