Our front porch stairs had sunk considerably causing the last step up to our house to be too high and tripping people all the time! We found Target Basement Systems and they got it fixed within a week. There work was precise and attention to detail excellent. We were very pleased with how quickly they scheduled our repair (the next week). They showed up exactly as promised and it looks great. You can’t even tell it was repaired. I highly recommend Roswin S, Justin H and Chris A. Only regret is not finding them sooner.

Cannot recommend more highly. Tim Martin came out and knew immediately what to do. Professional crew created new drainage trough and installed a newer, more effective sump pump. Great communicators, prompt and swift service and fully warranted service. Exactly the kind of company I like doing business with. Would not hesitate to call them for help again and again (but, hope I don't have to…hah!!). Well done Tim Martin!

Nyles, Tyree, & Jeff did an excellent job encapsulating my crawlspace. They explained everything and were very professional. When an issue came up concerning the crawlspace door, they made sure to contact the manager and a custom door was made for the space. I did have to call and inquiry about a few things and return visits but they were reaponsive and made sure the job was done. Great install team!!

I had just purchased a property and needed work on the crawlspace. Pete came out and did the initial inspection and explained everything thoroughly. We scheduled our service and then Ray W, Justin U, Greg H, and Eduardo Z came to do work and were extremely professional. At the end Ray walked me through everything they had done for an overall great experience!

We had some downspouts installed. I’ll admit the first work that was done was apparently done incorrectly by one of the installers because we had worse problems and the work in general is not what I expected. (Based on previous and unrelated work by the same company). However, once it was brought to the company’s attention they responded quickly and stood behind their commitment and returned to handle repairs correctly. So far we are pleased with the repaired work..esthetically. We will need some rain before I can speak to resolution success.

After an annual maintenance service of our crawl space encapsulation and at the suggestion of Grant we decided to move forward with a plan to stabilize an area of our foundation that was weakened for some time. Tyree and Christian came out two days later to install beams and jacks to secure that part of the foundation. Tyree explained everything that was going to happen, what it would do to stabilize the foundation, and how long it would take. Everything went very smoothly and I went into the crawlspace to inspect the work and learn how the system would add support to the foundation. Tyree explained in terms I could understand. Both men were professional and finished in the time they laid out. This is my second experience with Tar Heel and both went well.

The team with team leader Daniel , called in advance talked w me about what they were planning to do n even planned ahead for what the job required. They came he greeted me n then they went to work. His team of Travis n Dominque got the work done n gave me a high quality job. They took away the trash n really policed the area for sharp items that could puncture my tires. My overall experience w Tarheel Basewent far exceeded my expectations, great having them here.

This company did a crawlspace encapsulation for us. The work is top notch and it only took 3 days. Everything was thoroughly explained to us. This company takes care of everything including debris removal, electrical outlet installation, and sump pump installation. Brian C and John C worked on our house and did a fantastic job. Thanks.
