Susan P. of Winston Salem, NC was having trouble making her basement energy efficient. After seeing information online, she decided to give Tar Heel Basement Systems a call.
Tar Heel Basement Systems installed the EverLast Basement Window. The Everlast Window is made of vinyl so that it won't rust, rot or ever need to be painted. Unlike her original basement window that only had one pane, the EverLast Window has two panes and comes with weather stripping to keep outside elements out of her basement.
She is now happy that her basement has become more energy efficient and has gotten a cosmetic transformation at the same time!
The horizontal crack along this Clemmons, NC basement wall was becoming larger as the years passed, eventually the homeowner could no longer hide the problem. Tar Heel Basement Systems stabilized the basement wall using the Basement Wall Anchor System.
The basement crack of this Ennice, North Carolina home grew larger over time, causing the wall to bow out. Noticing this was an alarming structural concern and no longer just a cosmetic crack, Tar Heel Basement Systems stabilized the wall. The Geo-Lock Channel Anchor System provided the wall with immediate stability and option to straighten the wall during dry periods. The homeowners now have peace of mind their basement wall is no longer failing.
Lisa D. became worried when she noticed signs that her foundation was settling. Worried about the long-term consequences of the structural issues, Lisa contacted Tar Heel Basement System after coming across an ad in her local newspaper.
Tar Heel sent foundation specialist William Blake to Lisa’s Winston-Salem home. After evaluating the outside of her home, William concluded that Lisa’s foundation had in fact fallen victim to foundation settlement. He explained that the installation of slab pier systems would effectively fix her settlement issues. Slab piers are long steel piers that are installed under the slabs that are settling. These piers are driven deep into the earth in soil that not only can support the homeowner’s home, but also lift the once-settled slabs back to their appropriate level.
Lisa agreed to William’s recommendations and had the slab pier system installed. Primary foreman Josh Watson and his crew were called in to complete the installation process. With the slab piers successfully installed, Lisa can now live peacefully knowing that the days of tripping hazards and not being able to properly close doors are over.
The finished basement in this older Greensboro, NC home smelled of unpleasant mold and wood rot. The basement had been finished with organic materials such as, wood paneling, wood trim and carpet. Over time moisture seeped through the walls and began deteriorating the finished basement.
The Finishing Team completely tore out all of the organic materials in the basement and installed inorganic wall panels, trim, flooring and a dehumidifier to keep moisture and mold out.
Structural damage can be one of the scariest occurrences a homeowner may ever have to deal with. With the uncertainty of how safe the structure is, precautions should be taken as soon as possible. When Lewisville homeowner Tom W. found early signs of a settling foundation, he called Tar Heel Basement Systems after coming across their website and reading positive reviews from other North Carolina homeowners.
Structural repair specialist Kent Dunn was sent out to Tom’s Lewisville home to inspect the damage. After surveying the outside perimeter of the home, Kent concluded that Tim’s home showed signs of foundation settling and that precautionary methods should be taken immediately to prevent further damage. Kent recommended the installation of helical piers, which are steel piers that are installed into the settled foundation with the purpose of transferring the load of the structure from an unstable soil to a more durable and stable soil located deeper in the ground. The piers ultimately giving more stability to the structure and eventually return it back to normal.
Kent Dunn called in primary foreman Josh Watson and his crew to complete the installation process. With the helical piers installed, Tom’s house structural stability is no longer a concern of his. The professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems aim to please and no job is too big or too small, so call today for a free estimate.
Radon caused over 21,000 lung cancer related deaths last year. This is more than drunk driving and home fires combined. With that said, radon is nothing to take lightly and should be dealt with immediately if high levels are found to be present. When Lewisville homeowner Donna H. suspected her home of having elevated radon levels, she immediately contacted the specialists at Tar Heel Basement Systems after being referred to them by her realtor.
Donna was met by radon prevention specialist Scott Hopkins to evaluate her home. After performing a radon test, Scott concluded that Donna’s home contained radon levels above the amount that’s deemed safe. Scott recommended the installation of a radon fan, specifically the HP190 which is a top of the line radon fan, along with this PVC piping was recommended as well to direct the radon safely out of the home.
Radon is a highly radioactive substance found due to the natural decay of uranium in all of earth’s soil types. Radon is found everywhere, but measures should be taken to keep radon levels low. Donna H. found that her home had elevated levels of radon but thanks to the Scott and foreman Josh Watson and the crew from Tar Heel Basement Systems, her home has the precautions to keep her safe for years to come!
The exterior carport wall at this Lewisville, NC home had begun leaning out over time. The eight-foot wall was now becoming a safety hazard as the framing of the carport and foundation were being compromised.
Tar Heel Basement Systems installed (4) four Basement Wall Anchors to stabilize and over time straighten the leaning wall. Basement Wall Anchors stars were placed over the anchors to provide a more decorative appearance.
Clemmons couple Ruth Anna and David A. planned on selling their home, but before they could do that, they had to make sure there were no problems that might deter potential buyers. The couple did a self inspection where they noticed cracking in their foundation. Knowing this could be a potential deal breaker for a buyer, the couple needed to find a contractor to fix the problem quick! A close friend referred the couple to Tar Heel Basement Systems, who they decided to call that day!
That same week, the couple was met by foundation repair specialist William Blake at their Clemmons home. After inspecting the foundation inside and out, William told the couple that their house had begun to settle. William recommended the installation of push piers. Push piers are steel tubes that are attached to a steel bracket. The bracket is connected to the house via the existing footing and the piers are then driven hydraulically into the ground. Combining the structural weight and the contributory soil load, the piers are continuously driven until a suitable load bearing stratum is encountered. Over time, the piers actually lift the house to its original position!
With the recommendation agreed upon, Kent called in primary foreman Orville Schoenfield to complete the foundation repair project. Thanks to the professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems, Ruth Anne and David no longer have to worry about something keeping them from selling their house!
Radon is no laughing matter, causing more than 21,000 lung cancer-related deaths a year, radon should never be overlooked. When Greta F. found her home had elevated levels of radon, she knew she needed to call in an expert to lower the radon levels, or risk putting her life in jeopardy. After being referred to Tar Heel Basement Systems, Greta gave them a call to come out to evaluate her home.
That same week, Greta was met by radon specialist Adam Hill who came to evaluate her radon levels. After the evaluation, Adam recommended that the homeowner install a radon fan. Along with the combination of PVC and a PVC exhaust cap, these solutions would effectively and efficiently suck up the radon and exhaust it out of the home with no threat to her well being!
Adam Hill and his crew returned to install the radon prevention products. After installation of the radon mitigation system, radon should no longer be a source of stress in Greta’s home. With radon causing more deaths per year than drunk driving, radon mitigation should be a no-brainer. Call Tar Heel Basement Systems for your free estimate today!

Radon is an extremely dangerous gas and exposure over a period of time can actually cause lung cancer. With that said, testing your home for radon is the only way to make sure that you and your family are safe. When Belews Creek homeowner Janette M. found out that her friend recently had her home tested, she decided to do the same. The friend referred Janette to Tar Heel Basement Systems who she called that same day.
Radon prevention specialist William Blake was sent out to meet Janette at her Belews Creek home. After administering a radon test, William noticed that Janette’s radon levels were above average. William recommended the installation of an XP151 radon fan in her basement. The XP151 is a specialized fan made specially for radon, this fan along with the attachment of a PVC pipe would suck up the radon seeping into the home through the foundation base and would send it up through the PVC pipe and discharge it safely out of the home!
Thanks to Orville Schoenfield and his crew and the radon mitigation installed, Janette’s home is now safe from radon, but more importantly Janette is safe from the long term effects of radon!
