PolyRenewal™ Concrete Leveling & Lifting

The sunken and cracked concrete around your Advance 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.

Cracked Basement Wall Becomes Permanently Stabilized in Advance, NC

Throughout the last couple of years, the homeowners noticed cracks forming along their basement wall. Worried their wall would eventually cave-in, they needed a reliable company to provide a permanent solution. Tar Heel Basement Systems achieved all goals of the homeowner by installing the Basement Wall Anchor System, immediately stabilizing the cracked wall. 

Home's Finished Basement Made Dry and Bright
When Thomas noticed that one of the rooms in his finished basement had a leaky corner wall he decided to take action. Finding out about Tar Heel Basement Systems through a direct mailer, he gave us a call and Mike Smith was on the case. He recommended a combination of a BasementGutter french drain system, paneling, a new SafeDri super sump pump. Foreman Adam Canter and his crew spent a couple of days installing this system flawlessly. The footer was much deeper than expected so some extra drilling was in order to make space for the new SafeDri super sump pump. The BasementGutter system was installed around the perimeter of the room to drain to the sump pump which in turn lets water flow out of the home. Paneling covering the walls will keep any moisture out of the atmosphere, leading it into the french drain below it. It also brightens up the room, hiding any water stains. This complete basement waterproofing system will keep the room dry as well as the entire basement. The smartest place to start keeping your home cool, dry and healthy is at the bottom and Thomas did just that.
Homeowner Tests For Radon in Advance, NC: Test Your Home Today!

Radon is one of the most unknown substances to a homeowner, but as one of the leading causes of cancer in nonsmokers, homeowners should be more educated about radon.  When Scott F.  heard that his neighbor was having a radon test conducted, he decided it would be a good idea to call the professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems to have conducted in his home as well.  

Radon prevention specialist William Blake tested Scott’s basement and found elevated levels of radon.  William recommended installing a radon fan and PVC pipes to suck the radon coming from the basement’s ground foundation and exhaust safely outside of his home.  With this approach, radon won’t build up in his home, therefore protecting him from its long-term effects.

Primary foreman Herman Massengill and his crew were called in to install the radon mitigation system.  Radon is no laughing matter and should be taken care of with the utmost urgency. While your home might not be affected, there’s no way to find out with testing.  Scott is happy he did, and encourages other homeowners to do the same in order to make sure they are protected.

IntelliJacks Fix Bowing Floors in Advance, NC Home

Homeowner Catherine M. noticed one day that parts of her flooring felt she was stepping on a spring. She also noticed that some of her doors were not shutting problem.  Wanting to find the source of these problems, Catherine decided to contact the professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems to come inspect her home.

Shortly after scheduling an estimate, foundation repair specialist William Blake inspected the home’s basement and found nothing. How is this possible? He concluded that the problem was actually in her crawl space. The problem was that the horizontal support beams in the crawl space were bowing.  William recommended installing the IntelliJack System to take care of the problem permanently.  IntelliJack crawl space support posts are perfect for this situation because unlike wooden support posts, these posts won’t ever rot, warp, shrink or crack.  Also, IntelliJack supports are reinforced with concrete at their base and the jacks are adjustable, allowing for maximum weight-bearing strength.  

Foundation troubles can be some of the scariest problems a homeowner can go through, but thanks to primary foreman Josh Watson and the crew from Tar Heel Basement Systems, Catherine will no longer have to worry about sagging floors, doors that are hard to open and shut, or any other problems associated with foundation problems. This homeowner’s troubles are now a thing of the past!

SafeDri Triple Sump Pump, BasementGutter and Waterproof Advance, NC Home
After a heavy rainstorm flooded her basement, homeowner Anna H. knew that she had a serious predicament on her hands.  Knowing she needed a professional’s help, Anna began asking around for recommendations for a good local contractor.  Finally, Anna across an advertisement for Tar Heel Basement Systems, recognized the same and decided to give them a call. Soon after, Anna was met by waterproofing specialist Roger Roten at her Advance home.  After assessing her basement, Roger suggested a comprehensive waterproofing system be installed in her basement to keep it dry. Foreman Orville Schoenfield and his crew installed a SafeDri triple sump pump, BasementGutter and paneling.  The patented SafeDri triple sump pump is a sump pump with one additional pump and a backup battery pump to ensure drainage in heavy storms and power outages.  BasementGutter is a water drainage system that is installed along the perimeter of a basement to catch water that seeps in; it then sends the water down to the sump pump to be discharged out of the basement keeping the basement clean and dry! Paneling is a semi-rigid white plastic panel system installed on basement walls to drain water, stop water vapor from getting into the basement and brightens up the basement.  Other products like a Tar Heel dehumidification system and FreezeGuard discharge line were also installed. Thanks to Roger, Orville and the installation team from Tar Heel Basement Systems, Anna’s basement is now effectively waterproofed and her days of waking up after a heavy rainstorm to a flooded basement are over.  The professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems aim to please, and Anna’s dry basement is a testament to their quality work!

Baltimore Rd in Advance
There is a brick flower box on the left side of the front of the home. It was filled with concrete for unknown reasons and it is causing damage down in the basement. Someone attempted treating the issue with what I am assuming is "dry-lock". The dry lock is turning to paste when the water gets into the basement. Would like to have this looked at and and a figure on how much it would be to fix the existing issues.

Covington Dr. in Advance
We have 3 water problems in our basement currently, but really two areas of concern. It is about a 1000SQFT unfinished basement which i would like to finish. 1. front left corner and front center of house have had leaks in the past and recently. Front center cinder block was painted with drylock by prevoius owner...just hid the problem, I've ground off some of the paint and the block wall is damp at head level after wet periods. It has allowed water to pool beneath this exposed block. Front corner is where main water line enter home. The wall below drips periodically, but not always when wet, it might not have rained for weeks and water will suddenly be all over the floor, you can see the white mineral deposits where the water comes in. (Front leach fields might have something to do with the intermittent problems. 2. Back doors of basement are walkout...water is entering above the doors, this area is under the porch and I do not think any flashing was installed properly...Wall around these doors is rotted out and needs replacement. Home was built in 2007. I bought it in late 2011, have seen about 7-10 instances of water intrusion since purchase. I'd like to have a couple different opinions....I'm going to end up spending a good deal of money to finish the basement and want to make sure that it is ALL done properly and to last. Thank you.
