The causes of a wet basement

Did you know you can have water issues in your basement without heavy rains or obvious standing water? It's easy enough to see water coming through a crack in your floor or basement wall, but what's the real cause of your basement water problem?

clay bowl effect

The Clay Bowl Effect

Excavated soil that's replaced around a completed foundation isn't as dense and tightly packed as undisturbed soil farther away. As a result, water collects in the soil immediately surrounding the house, putting pressure on foundation walls and causing cracks.

hydrostatic pressure

Hydrostatic Pressure:

As soil around your foundation becomes soaked with moisture, it expands and puts pressure on your foundation. The water will then work its way through any opening available, including cracks and openings around pipes or windows.

    Margaret C. of Madison, NC

    Customer Testimonial

              The basement in Margaret C.'s Madison, NC home used to leak during heavy rains. The crawl space was just like most typical crawl spaces in North Carolina: dirt-floored, moldy and humid.After watching Tar Heel Basement Systems commercials on TV she decided to call the company.When our system design specialist came to take a look at the problems, she also mentioned that the chimney was pulling away from the house, and was pleasantly surprised when Tar Heel Basement Systems offered her a solution for that problem as well.Our system design specialist proposed installing a new drainage system in the basement and crawl space, and a powerful sump pump system to collect ground water and divert it away from the foundation. The crawl space was then sealed to keep ground moisture and humid outside air from entering the space. A dehumidifier was installed to control moisture in the area year-round. The tilted chimney was lifted and restored to its original position with the use of helical piers.Margaret is really impressed with the customer care provided by the company all through the process, from sale to installation and beyond. She is also so happy with the results that she is eager to share her experience with others, and have been referring us to neighbors and friends ever since!

    Erich B. of Greensboro, NC

    Customer Testimonial

              Outstanding work. I am so very very pleased I hired your company for my project. Josh and his installation crew were an outstanding sets of professionals. No matter how well you're paying them, they deserve a bonus and a raise. John William's presentation, patience, and ability to help me understand everything in the procedures and functionality if the system. Also price was good. Your company did so many things right that just make for excellent professionalism and good business. 1st and foremost to me is that all items were done when they said they were going to be done. Every date and time I was told people would be on site, people were on site. I don't mind waiting 7 weeks to get you here if you tell me it will be 7 weeks to get there. I don't mind waiting 2 weeks for materials if you tell me 2 weeks. (I added on to my original order so this was my fault). If it's 2 weeks and you tell me 3 days, all respect is lost. At all 3 stages the crews were professional and had intelligent knowledgeable people on site. This gives a very important sense of ease to me as a client. It is tremendously frustrating when a professional salesman gives an estimate but later Tweedledee and Tweedledum who can't think for themselves, understand anything not on their piece of paper or is part of another stage of the process, or GOD FORBID be able to make a decision show up. Being able to have all discussions with a pro as questions or concerns appear throughout the process is terrific. Another item that impressed me greatly was how much painstaking effort was put in by both install crews to keep messes to a minimum, protect my property, inform me of concerns (and in my old, not standard built house, I had no doubt all kinds of anomalies would arise) as they occurred. It showed me they really cared about keeping me happy by protecting home. Furthermore both crews worked like clydesdales, really passionately with a strong sense of pride in their work. My hat is off to Adam Hill and his men who started extra early, worked late into the night, and got everything done with a great attitude and professionalism from start to finish. I'd recommend Tarheel Basement Systems to anyone and rehire you again in a heart beat. I am extremely pleased with how everything turned out. Thank you so much. Call anytime for a reference or recommendation.

    Before
    Reidsville, NC - Finished Basement Restoration
    After

    The finished basement in this Reidsville, NC home had a finished basement with drywall and carpet. Overtime, the basement began to leak after heavy rains around the base of the drywall and carpeted floor. The homeowner wanted to prevent mold growth from taking over their finished basement by waterproofing the basement and installing new finishing material.

    Tar Heel Basement Systems installed the WaterGuard and TripleSafe Basement Waterproofing System along the entire perimeter of the basement. The drywall that was previously affected by the water damage was replaced with the EverLast Wall Restoration Panels. Unlike drywall, EverLast Wall Panels are made of antimicrobial materials and will never rot or mold. The carpet was replaced with the anti-mold ThermalDry Basement Flooring.

  • Basement Now Permanently Dry in Mayodan, NC
    Before
    Basement Now Permanently Dry in Mayodan, NC
    After

    Visible signs of efflorescence along the basement walls and high relative humidity were alarming the Mayodan, NC homeowners. Their goal was to have a dry basement--permanently. 

    Tar Heel Basement Systems installed the WaterGuard Drainage System along the interior perimeter wall affected by moisture intrusion. A small trench was dug and weep holes were drilled at the base of the wall, WaterGuard was placed on top of the home's footing, preventing clogging. Intruding moisture enters the system through the weep holes, allowing the water to be channeled into the TripleSafe sump pump where it is safely pumped away from the home. No longer worrying about the next rainstorm, the homeowners have a permanently dry basement.
