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.
