For over a decade Tar Heel Basement Systems has been the trusted basement and foundation contractor in Winston Salem. We provide permanent, warranted solutions to make sure your home is protected. Armed with patented basement & foundation products and trained professionals makes us the obvious choice.
Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair
Water and moisture in the basement or crawl space results in mold, rot and structural repair. We prevent this from ever happening by waterproofing your basement or encapsulating your crawl space.
If you are having water and moisture problems in your basement we install an interior drainage system. Any entering water is captured in the drainage channel where it flows to a sump pump that pumps it out and away from the home. A basement dehumidifier is installed for humidity and moisture control. Our system comes with a transferable lifetime dry-basement warranty. You will have a permanently dry basement.

For Crawl Spaces we provide protection and moisture control by sealing the space and encapsulating the area with heavy-duty, vinyl vapor barrier. We also install proper insulation and an energy-efficient crawl space dehumidifier. If needed we can also install a drainage system and sump pump as well. Any entering water is removed and any excess moisture is controlled. Your crawl space is kept dry and protected.
Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling
We fix foundation problems before they can become worse. Using non-invasive methods we lift your Winston Salem home back to its original position.

As well as more serious foundation problems we also lift and level sunken concrete slabs. To fix the slab we drill small holes throughout the concrete and inject PolyRenewal, an expansive polyurethane foam. The foam expands to fill all the gaps and lifts the slab to its original position.
We can fix sunken sidewalks, patios, concrete around pools, etc. PolyRenewal has many advantages over traditional mudjacking and slabjacking. PolyRenewal is much lighter than mud slurry. It also cures much faster and is pumped through much smaller holes in the concrete. It is the best way to fix sunken concrete.
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!
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.
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!
Tar Heel Basement Systems was able to transform this Winston Salem, NC homeowner’s sunken slab back to its original height. The slab driveway had sunk (3) three inches in front of the garage area.

This homeowner is excited their driveway has been restored with no disruption to the property!
This Winston Salem, NC homeowner was experiencing a bowing wall. Fiber strips had already been installed by another company but were failing due to the amount of pressure the intruding water was putting on the wall.
The Tar Heel Foundation Trew was able to stabilize the bowing wall by installing (12) twelve patented IntelliBraces™. The heavy duty IntelliBraces™ are zinc coated and will not corrode over the coming years. This homeowner is ecstatic to have a stabalized wall thanks to Tar Heel Basement Systems.
Tar Heel Basement Systems was able to stabilize this Winston Salem, NC home that was suffering from foundation settlement due to poorly compacted fill soil. Over time the soil has become loose allowing for the home to settle in some areas. Large cracks around the exterior of the basement doors and windows were visible from the settlement.
The Push Pier System, installed along the exterior of the home provided immediately stabilization for the home. The foundation team was able to transfer the weight of the home onto the Push Piers after the system reached stable soil levels.
