Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation in Durham, NC

Your Durham, NC, home’s crawl space is useful for elevating your house off the ground and storing utilities like plumbing and ductwork. But this small area can also cause a lot of harm to your home, especially if it is vented. Mold, moisture, and pests can run rampant under your house and affect the rest of your home’s air quality and safety, as well as your family’s health. 

The best way to repair your crawl space and protect your home and family is with professional inspections and solutions. Tar Heel Basement Systems has been repairing and encapsulating crawl spaces in Durham and throughout North Carolina for 20 years.

Crawl Space Problems in Durham

While it is important to maintain the health and safety of your crawl space, it is not a good idea to go into this hazardous area under your Durham home by yourself to look for problems. However, there are several symptoms you can be aware of throughout the rest of your living space, such as increased pest activity, elevated humidity, musty odors, high energy and utility bills, and sagging or uneven floors. Once you reach out to Tar Heel Basement Systems for a free inspection, we will also check for pests and high humidity, as well as mold, condensation, water leaks or flooding, damaged vapor barriers, wet insulation, wood rot, open vents, and loose doors. 

Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Durham

Humidity is at the heart of what is causing your crawl space problems. Durham has a humid subtropical climate, so this notoriously muggy air, especially during the summer, enters your home through open crawl space vents. These vents also allow bugs and other pests inside, as well as runoff from the average annual 46 inches of rainfall the area typically experiences. This creates a perfect storm for mold growth, wood rot, and other issues. The stack effect also results from open vents. This natural bottom-to-top airflow pattern allows mold spores and unconditioned air to circulate in your home, leading to additional health and safety hazards. 

Crawl Space Repair & Encapsulation Solutions in Durham

While they may work for other areas of your house, DIY projects are not the answer for your crawl space. Your Durham crawl space is different from others in the area, so it needs to have personalized repair and encapsulation solutions that are professionally engineered and installed. Your crawl space can benefit from our airtight vent covers and doors, vapor barrier, thermal insulation, interior drains, sump pumps, dehumidifiers, and support posts. Along with being fully customizable, everything we install is made in the United States and guaranteed by nationally backed, long-term, transferrable warranties for extra protection.

Why Choose Tar Heel Basement Systems?

Your crawl space is a delicate, dangerous area that has a lot of sway over the condition of the rest of your house. Fixing and protecting this area under your Durham house is important, but it should be left to experienced professionals who have the tools and training to effectively execute these repairs. You can trust our team at Tar Heel Basement Systems to handle your crawl space with care, as thousands of other Durham homeowners have done the same. 

During our 20 years of serving Durham and nearby communities, we have earned several accolades from Angi, Home Advisor, and the Better Business Bureau, as well as many positive reviews from happy homeowners. We look forward to serving you, as well. To get started, contact us today to schedule your free inspection and estimate.

The the professional manner in which every part of the team approached the job at hand was far above my expectations. The Foreman, Shane English introduced his team Evan Boswell and Jaziah Christ to me. They were courteous, hard working, kept the job site clean and organized. They were very timely arriving at job site. No waiting on my part. They ask me several times if I had any questions. And they placed items back where they needed to be. I have several other projects in mind for Tarheel Basement Solutions. I would not hesitate to recommend them for your projects.

After an annual maintenance service of our crawl space encapsulation and at the suggestion of Grant we decided to move forward with a plan to stabilize an area of our foundation that was weakened for some time. Tyree and Christian came out two days later to install beams and jacks to secure that part of the foundation. Tyree explained everything that was going to happen, what it would do to stabilize the foundation, and how long it would take. Everything went very smoothly and I went into the crawlspace to inspect the work and learn how the system would add support to the foundation. Tyree explained in terms I could understand. Both men were professional and finished in the time they laid out. This is my second experience with Tar Heel and both went well.

I hired Tarheel Basement Systems to do a crawlspace encapsulation on a property that I am renovating and preparing for the market. I could not have been more pleased with their level of professionalism and workmanship. The entire experience was positive, starting with my sales person Nathan Seeley, and including our on-site crew of Jaylan, Daniel and McKai. I would highly recommend this company for foundation and crawlspace work. 👍🏻👍🏻

From the time I called to request an initial revie, until the work was completed, this process was professional and convenient. Zack came and crawled around in the very tight crawl space during the initial examination and then scoped the work and cost same day with me. John C and Brian C were the service representatives performing the installation of the membrane and foam board over a two day process. These guys worked so hard and kept me informed on status the whole way. I gave 5 stars because I've had lots of service jobs performed at my home and this team and the work done exceeded my expectations.

Cameron and Mekhi did a great job of installing a crawl drain and sump pump. They arrived on time, worked diligently, and completed the job sooner than was expected. All the while they answered my questions and provided a complete walk (crawl) through at the end. They were courteous and tried very hard to be sure I was pleased with the work. Excellent work by both of them!
