The sunken and cracked concrete around your Kernersville 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.

Job Stories From Kernersville, NC
Crawl Space Waterproofing System Saves Kernersville, NC Home from Further Damage
When Kernersville homeowner Steve R. found that water was leaking into his crawl space, he knew that something had to be done before the problem got any worse.  Steve decided to search the Internet for a good waterproofing company.  Steve came across Tar Heel Basement Systems and was convinced he should give them a call after reading their many positive reviews from happy customers.  The fact that they offer free estimates also didn’t hurt! Very soon after, Steve was met by Tar Heel representative and waterproofing specialist Roger Roten.  Roger immediately got down to business, inspecting the crawl space and writing up an estimate for repair.  Roger fully explained the installation process and answered all of Steve’s questions. Primary foreman Joshua Carver and his crew began by installing a CrawlDrain drainage system along the perimeter of the crawl space.  Not only does the CrawlDrain catch incoming water and direct it towards a sump pump, but it also prevents the dirt crawl space from infiltrating the system ensuring proper drainage.  Next, a SafeDri sump pump was installed.  The SafeDri is made with a unique cover design, that detects plumbing leaks and alerts the homeowner of high water levels.  Finally an FreezeGuard was installed on the discharge line and outlet was installed to make sure water is drained a safe distance away from the foundation in all weather conditions! After a quick two day repair job, Steve’s basement is now ready to take on the world.  Thanks to the professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems, Steve’s basement will be the last thing he has to worry about!
Hesitant Homeowner Finds Trusted Contractor to Fix Sagging Kernersville, NC Crawl Space
Jeffrey J. is a homeowner in the Kernersville, North Carolina area.  After another contractor did a poor job fixing his crawl space, Jeffrey was hesitant to call another waterproofing company.  Yet when he found possible structural issues with his crawl space, he knew he needed a professional’s help again.  Jeffrey went online to research companies when he stumbled upon Tar Heel Basement Systems who he decided to contact to schedule an estimate. Soon after, Tar Heel sent out structural repair specialist John Williams, who analyzed the crawl space.  Scott Ledford and his crew got to work right away, installing the products suggested by John.  The team installed the IntelliJack crawl space support system.  IntelliJack crawl space floor joist lifts are metal support beams that take the place of traditional wooden support beams. Unlike traditional wooden beams, IntelliJack posts are made from galvanized steel which prevents them from warping, shrinking, cracking or breaking, ensuring structural support for years and years!  A Tar Heel mini dehumidifer was also installed in the crawl space to eliminate moisture, humidity and mold. Two days later and Jeffrey’s crawl space was better than ever!  Thanks to the professionals at Tar Heel Basement Systems, Jeffrey now has a contractor that he can trust to call if he encounters any problems in the future. But for now, Jeffrey is just enjoying his dry, healthy crawl space!
Kernersville, NC - Detached Garage Slab Raised

Tar Heel Basement Systems gave the once wet basement an upgrade by installing the SafeDri triple sump pump and battery back-up. The airtight lid keeps water vapor out, while the pump will continue to work even during a power outage.

Suburban Kernersville Home's Moldy Wood Replaced

Robert noticed a bit of sagging and bowing in his bouncy floor boards on the second story of his home on a hill. His grandchildren, full of energy, would run back and forth over that area and to keep them safe, he knew it was time to give Tar Heel Basement Systems a call. System design specialist Daniel Harrell knew this would be an easy fix with thorough wood replacement and extra reinforcement. 

Foreman Adam Blake and his crew arrived with new wood to replace the frail and water damaged joists and girders. Twenty pieces of 2x8x12 yellow pine were installed as sister joists to both replace and reinforce any existing support. Eleven pieces of 2x8x10 yellow pine served as replacement girders. Wood shoring and seal replacement was also performed to make sure the home's foundation was in tip-top shape.

Roger was at home during the entire project and was able to watch the crew at each turn. Completing the job in just a day, the homeowner was extremely happy with the work and the attention to detail. He knew that this project would keep his home and his family safe for years to come.

Traditional Brick Home's Crawlspace Drained and Dried
Herbert's beautiful home right outside of Kernersville, North Carolina had a dirty secret underneath his floorboards. The homeowner contacted Tar Heel Basement Systems after seeing an ad in a direct mailer and inquired about installing a drain and sealing up his crawlspace. He had been experiencing high humidity and wanted to make sure his crawlspace would not eventually lead to damage to his home's infrastructure. Systems design specialist Roger Roten recommended a basic system to be installed in his crawlspace to make sure any infiltrating water would be drained out of the area and and moisture kept out of the atmosphere. A SmartDrain system was installed to carry any running water out of the area and 2300 square feet of CrawlSeal Light was laid down. Steven LaGray and his crew installed the entire system in just two days. The vapor barrier extended up on to the walls and around piers as well as covering all of the dirt floor. Strong tape and caulk is used to ensure a seamless fit. The crawlspace vents were also sealed up in order to complete the crawlspace system. Now, outdoor air and moisture from the soil cannot infiltrate the home making it healthier and safer for the home and family.
