PolyRenewal™ Concrete Leveling & Lifting

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Alamance home is both an eyesore and a safety hazard. It is also likely to get worse, but we can fix it for you.

Our experts use PolyRenewal, a superior polyurethane foam. Small holes are drilled in the concrete, the foam is injected and the expanding foam lifts the concrete. The majority of contractors you will call use mudjacking instead of foam. Mudjacking is heavier, require larger holes in the concrete and does not last as long as PolyRenewal. Call us today to learn more.

Job Stories From Burlington
Bowing Floors Causes Uncertainty in Burlington, NC Homeowner

One day, homeowner Steven G. found that some of his floors were sagging and had a spring-like quality when stepped on.  Steven recognized these symptoms as foundation trouble, and after searching for contractors online, came across Tar Heel Basement Systems and contacted them for an inspection after reading positive reviews from other Burlington residents who had dealt with similar problems and had them successfully repaired by Tar Heel.

Upon inspecting the home, foundation repair specialist John Williams saw that the floors were definitely sagging and recommended that the most effective solution would be the installation of the IntelliJack System. IntelliJack crawl space support posts are designed to level and stabilize beams and floor joists in the crawl space, thus repairing the sagging floor above. Unlike wooden support posts, IntelliJack supports are made out of steel, therefore, they will never rot, warp, crack or shrink; ensuring a much longer lifecycle than wooden posts.  Finally, the posts are adjustable, allowing the contractor to apply maximum load-bearing strength to the underside of the beam.  With the repairs agreed upon, John called in Josh Watson and his crew to install the IntelliJack System.

With the supplemental support system successfully installed, Steven will no longer have to worry about weak soil or humidity and moisture damaging the floor joists in his crawl space. Steven’s home will go back to the way it was when it first built if not even better.  The professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems strive for nothing but the best for the customers and Steve is no exception!

Burlington, NC- Brick Basement Now Dry
The brick basement in Burlington, NC had a case of the damp basement walls and floor every time it rained or snowed. Tar Heel Basement Systems installed the BasementGutter Drainage System and SafeDri super sump pump to remove the moisture and pump the water safely away from the home.
Burlington, NC- Crawl Space Receives Healthy Makeover
The damp ridden crawl space under this Burlington, NC home had seen better days. Open vents with an exposed dirt floor were a recipe for unhealthy indoor air quality. Humidity entered the crawl space through the open vents, allowing for mold spores to spread throughout the entire crawl space. The previous vapor barrier was replaced with the CrawlSeal 20mil Encapsulation System while each vent was completely sealed off from outdoor air. In order to provide healthy indoor air quality for the home above, the Aprilaire self-draining dehumidifier was installed to keep humidity levels below 55% and prevent future mold growth.
Burlington, NC- Damp Crawl Space Transformed
The damp crawl space under this Burlington, NC home had (3) three seperate 6mil. vapor barriers that were alll insufficient, allowing moisture to take over the area. Tar Heel Basement Systems replaced the failing thin vapor barriers with the 20mil CrawlSeal Encapsulation System. The thick liner is made of antimicrobial properties that will prevent moisture from taking over the crawl space.
Tar Heel Provides Assistance in Finishing of Burlington, NC Basement
After years of having an unfinished basement, homeowner Wanda B. decided it was time to create more livable space in her Burlington home with a finished basement.  Knowing this could not be a do-it-yourself type of job, Wanda began her search for a contractor.  She soon came across Tar Heel Basement Systems, who had posted an ad in the local newspaper, and she decided to give them a call. Tar Heel promptly sent basement finishing specialist John Williams to meet Wanda to talk about her expectations and budget.  After inspecting the basement, John found that there was a slight dampness in the basements air, but assured Wanda that this problem would be taken care of before finishing the basement. Primary foreman Adam Hill and his crew installed ThermalDry tile flooring, as recommended by John. Unlike ceramic or vinyl tile which are bonded directly to the floor, ThermalDry tile is designed with pegs on the edges to effectively raise it off the floor, creating a thermal barrier which keeps the floor 8-10 degrees warmer than directly-bonded tiles.  ThermalDry also doubles as an effective way to keep water out of the basement. The fact that it’s raised can help to effectively keep water vapor under its surface and dry it out without the threat of water seepage.  Finally, because each tile is installed separately, installation and replacement of the tiles is now easier than ever!  A Tar Heel dehumidifier was also installed to keep the basement free of moisture, and paneling was used as an extra precaution against water seepage, and to brighten the walls and give the basement an updated look! In the eyes of any homeowner, a clean and protected finished basement is a happy basement, and with the products installed by the professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems, Wanda’s basement is guaranteed to stay dry and look beautiful for years to come!
BasementGutter Protects Burlington, NC Basement
When Ivy and Lance M. found that their basement was taking in a substantial amount of water, they knew they needed the help of a professional to solve the problem.  The couple began searching for contractors online, eventually coming across Tar Heel Basement Systems.  The couple was impressed by the company’s reviews from hundreds of happy customers, so they decided to call them for a free estimate, and they were happy they did! Tar Heel sent out waterproofing specialist John Williams to meet the couple at their Burlington home.  After surveying their basement and surrounding foundation, John recommended installing a SafeDri super sump pump and BasementGutter drainage system to remove standing water and keep the basement dry all the time.  The BasementGutter is a drainage system that is installed along the perimeter of the basement.  The BasementGutter catches all water that seeps into the home and directs it toward the sump pump; the sump pump then effectively drains the unwanted water outside of the home.  With the recommendations agreed upon, Orville Schoenfield and his crew were called in to complete the installation process. Finding water in one’s basement is always a stressful situation, but thanks to the professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems, Ivy and Lance M.’s water problems are a thing of the past and they can rest easy knowing that outside elements are no longer a threat to their basement!
