Foundation Problem Signs in Durham

Many symptoms indicating your Durham home’s foundation is damaged will manifest as visible problem signs. These include wall cracks, cracked bricks, drywall nail pops, cracking and leaning chimneys, sagging floors, bowing walls, and sticking windows and doors. It’s important to keep your eyes peeled for these telltale issues and seek professional assistance from Tar Heel as soon as possible. The longer these problems continue, the more dangerous they will become for your family and home. But catching them early enough allows effective, affordable solutions to be used for permanent stabilization. 

Causes of Foundation Damage in Durham

Various factors can cause your foundation damage, but most of them stem from external forces like Durham’s soil and weather conditions. North Carolina is famous for its clay soil, but areas like Durham and the Research Triangle in the northern part of the state also have a clay and sand mix. Clay is an expansive soil that dramatically swells when wet and shrinks when dry, and sand is generally well-drained. If the soil is inundated with water, which can happen because of the area’s 46 inches of annual rainfall, it can wash away or expand so much that it exerts a great amount of hydrostatic pressure on the foundation. On the other hand, if the soil lacks moisture due to dry conditions or invasive tree roots have shifted the soil, it will sink and result in voids the foundation also can settle into.  

Foundation Repair Solutions in Durham

Your Durham home is unique in many ways, as is your foundation. Something that is a one-size-fits-all, DIY fix does not guarantee permanent repair and stabilization. At Tar Heel, we offer a variety of fully customizable foundation repair solutions to meet the needs of your particular foundation. Foundation piers, whether helical piers, push piers, or slab piers, will be used to permanently stabilize and help lift your settling foundation. If your crawl space floors and floor joists are sagging, support posts will function the same way. If your Durham home happens to have a basement, carbon fiber straps, wall beams, and wall anchors will be used to reinforce cracking and bowing walls. All these solutions are American-made and carry long-term, nationally backed warranties.

Why Choose Tar Heel Basement Systems?

Wall cracks are more than just cosmetic issues. They could mean something serious is happening below the surface and impacting the foundation of your Durham home. Getting to the bottom of these problems and repairing them sooner rather than later is crucial for your home’s value, safety, and longevity. 

The best way to do that is with professional assistance from Tar Heel Basement Systems. Our award-winning, locally and nationally recognized service and solutions have been trusted by Durham homeowners for 20 years. We can help you too. Contact our friendly and knowledgeable team today to book your free foundation inspection and repair estimate.

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.

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.

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.

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!
