Tar Heel Basement Systems Before & After Photos

Dobson, NC Crawl Space Vapor Barrier Replaced

The homeowners realized within the first year of owning the home that the crawl space had a moisture and humidity problem. The thin vapor barrier was no longer protecting the home from musty odors, moisture and mold spores. Wanting to have the problem fixed by a reliable company, the Dobson, NC homeowners called Tar Heel Basement Systems.

Tar Heel Basement Systems removed the failing vapor barrier, replacing it with the CrawlSeal System. Unlike the previous 6mil thick liner, CrawlSeal is 20mil thick and made of antimicrobial properties to prevent mildew and mold growth. CrawlSeal completely seals the crawl space from floor to wall, separating the home from the exposed dirt below. The homeowners increased their home’s property value by having a healthy, dry crawl space.


Jamestown, NC – Crawl Space Transformation

The crawl space in this Jamestown, NC home had a musty smell that was beginning to linger to the living area above. The homeowners needed to have the problem addressed and permanently fixed.

Tar Heel Basement Systems restored the crawl space by removing all of the drooping, damp fiberglass insulation and insufficient thin plastic that was barely covering the soil floor. The previous, faulty materials were replaced with X-Grade Crawl Space Insulation, CrawlSeal 20mil. liner and the Tar Heel Dehumidifier. The crawl space was transformed into a bright, dry and conditioned space that benefits the home’s overall indoor air quality.


Greensboro, NC – Damp Crawl Space Causing Mold & Wood Rot

Exposed dirt in the crawl space was causing the floor system of this Greensboro, NC home to be taken over by mold and mildew. The water vapor rising from the ground for an extended period of time had caused wood rot on the organic beams.

Tar Heel Basement Systems prevented further damage to the floor system by installing the 20mil CrawlSeal Encapsulation System. The liner contains antimicrobial properties, preventing mold growth on the plastic. The home is now completely separated from the damp, dirt floor below.

Bristol, VA- Basement Becomes Stabilized and Dry

This older Bristol, VA home was recently renovated. The basement was the last remaining part of the renovation. Small cracks had formed along the basement wall and water intrusion became present after heavy rains. Wanting to have the problems fixed during the same time, the homeowners called, Tar Heel Basement Systems.

Before the waterproofing could begin, the team stabilized the cracked walls using Carbon Fiber. Ten times stronger than steel, the Carbon Fiber fiber-reinforced straps provide instant stability to the wall, preventing further cracking and movement. Once the wall was stabilized, the waterproofing began. The BasementGutter Drainage System was placed along the trench, catching intruding water and channeling into the SafeDri™ Triple Sump Pump System where it is safely removed from the home.

Lastly, the homeowners wanted to brighten up the walls and hide the cracks. Tar Heel Basement Systems installed the CrawlSeal wall material to hide the cracks and Carbon Fiber system, providing the basement with a newly renovated look! Unlike drywall that can grow mold due to moisture, CrawlSeal is made of inorganic material, preventing mold or mildew growth.
