Job Stories From Forsyth, NC
Basement and Crawl Space Waterproofing in Lewisville, NC
This home in Lewisville, NC had a finished basement and a vented dirt crawl space. The homeowner had constant dampness on her basement walls, high humidity and moisture in her crawl space. In an effort to prevent the moisture from getting into the basement, she used DryLok waterproofing paint on the interior basement wall. After a short time, the Drylock paint started to chip away and peel off, leaving a black, mold-like residue on the wall. This was caused by moisture making its way through the porous basement wall. The homeowner decided that it was better to address the water intrusion in her basement rather than continue to cover it up like a bandaid with Drylock paint. She called Tar Heel Basement Systems to install BasementGutter, an interior perimeter drainage system, that will allow the moisture from the wall a route to exit the basement. The installation crew also installed CrawlDrain, an interior crawl space drainage system, that will pull any groundwater from the crawl space and lead it to the SafeDri super sump pump. Both drainage systems carried the water to the sump pump that was located in the crawl space and pumped out of the home. Now that this basement and crawl space have been waterproofed by Tar Heel Basement Systems, this homeowner will never need to paint Drylok on the walls again!
Basement Waterproofed to Help Sell Home in Winston-Salem, NC
This home was on the market to sell, but the inspection report came back showing moisture and foundation issues in the basement. These problems can often hinder the sale of a home, so the homeowner contacted Tar Heel Basement Systems to permanently solve these issues. One of the basement walls was beginning to bow, which caused a horizontal crack along the entire wall. The foundation crew installed (10) wall anchors to stabilize and potentially straighten the wall. Next, the waterproofing crew installed our patented BasementGutter drainage system around the perimeter of the basement to collect incoming water. That water was removed from the basement using the SafeDri super sump pump. Now that these basement problems are solved, this home is ready to go back on the market to sell. All waterproofing systems come with a lifetime, transferable warranty.

Foundation Settling Threatened Winston-Salem Homeowner: Slab Piers Saves it!

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.

Lewisville, NC Homeowner No Longer Has to Worry About High Radon Levels

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.

Push Piers Provide a Stable Home for Clemmons, NC Homeowners

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!

XP151 Radon Mitigation System Saves Belews Creek Homeowner From Harmful Radon

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.

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!
