Foundation Repair Before & After Photos

Winston Salem, NC – Bowing Basement Wall Stabilized!

This Winston Salem, NC home that was built in the 1960’s was having structural concerns on 1 exterior basement wall. The wall had a large horizontal and stair-step crack that was causing the cinder block and brick to bow out. The homeowners called Tar Heel Basement Systems to provide them an appropriate solution to stabilize the wall.

Tar Heel Basement Systems foundation crew installed 3 IntelliBraces™ along the bowing wall. The patented IntelliBrace™ system effectively stabilized the wall; each IntelliBrace™ is zinc-plated for resistance to corrosion. Next, the crew installed a plastic paneling that is fastened to the wall while leaving a bright, clean look and stopping water vapor from permeating the basement wall.

This Winston Salem, NC homeowner is very pleased with the finished look now that her wall is stabilized and her basement is beautiful thanks to Tar Heel Basement Systems!


Mocksville, NC – Basement Waterproofing & Basement Wall Stabilization

This home in Mocksville, NC had water leaking into his basement when it rained hard. Often times, when a basement has water intrusion, there tends to be basement structural issues as well. In this case, water had been building up along the outside of the basement wall for so long that it began to crack and bow inward.

Tar Heel Basement Systems installed their patented BasementGutter System with a SafeDri™ Triple Sump Pump System to control the water leakage. To stabilize the failing basement wall, the team installed IntelliBrace™ beams. These beams are adjustable, allowing the wall to potentially be straightened over time. This homeowner now has a dry basement and stable foundation.


Winston Salem, NC – Braced Basement Wall

This Winston Salem, NC homeowner had a failing carbon fiber system along the bowing basement wall. After many attempts at reaching out to the company that originally installed the carbon strips, and finding out the company had gone out of business, no longer honoring the carbon fiber warranty; the homeowner called Tar Heel Basement Systems for professional help.

The Tar Heel Foundation Team installed twelve (12) IntelliBraces™ along the bowing wall where the carbon strips were failing. The patented IntelliBraces™ system will stabilize the wall correctly and the heavy-duty zinc plated steel beams will not corrode like traditional I-beams. Tar Heel Basement Systems was able to completely stabilize this bowing basement wall.


Foundation Repair in Vilas, NC

Horizontal and stair-step cracks formed along the basement wall years ago. Wanting to prevent the issue from worsening, the Vilas, NC homeowners installed three wooden support beams. Unfortunately, throughout the years, the wooden joists began to rot becoming more of a problem rather than a solution. 

Providing permanent stabilization to the cracked wall, the Basement Wall Anchor System was the best option to straighten the bowing wall. Installed in just one-day, the weight of the wall was transferred from the failing wooden support system and onto the Basement Wall Anchor System. The homeowners can now return to their renovation projects and have peace of mind, their basement wall is now permanently stabilized. 


Winston Salem, NC – Basement Walls Fixed with Carbon Fiber

This Winston Salem, NC home’s exterior basement walls had major structural concerns. Horizontal, vertical and stair-step cracks were visible throughout all of the cinder block basement walls.

Tar Heel Basement Systems installed (12) Carbon Fiber Straps. Carbon Armor is a very high tensile strength material that is almost impossible to stretch. The Carbon Fiber system is the only fabric carbon fiber product to code. Since carbon armor installations don’t require any outside digging, they are viable when there is limited access on the exterior of the home. Carbon Fiber’s low-profile allows for easy installation access behind plumbing lines and electrical conduit. The system was easily concealed with plastic paneling. It is fastened to the basement walls and provides a clean, bright look while preventing water vapor from permeating your walls.

Now this Winston Salem, NC homeowner can rest assured that her home’s structure is stable and safe, and her basement received a cosmetic lift thanks to Tar Heel Basement Systems!
