Foundation Problems in Wilmington

Your foundation is a complex area of your Wilmington home, but most signs of foundation damage will make themselves known through various forms. Keep an eye out for cracking walls, floor cracks, exterior brick cracks, drywall nail pops, bowing basement walls, uneven floors, cracking and leaning chimneys, and sticking doors and windows. Like ants at a picnic, where there’s one foundation problem, more are sure to follow. The earlier you spot these issues and reach out to Tar Heel Basement Systems for assistance, the better. Foundation damage will worsen, otherwise, and create unsafe living conditions for your family. 

Causes of Foundation Damage in Wilmington

The soil and weather in Wilmington are the main causes of most foundation damage. Wilmington is wet and humid, and the majority of the region’s 58 inches of annual precipitation fall during the sticky summer. Although droughts frequently hit the region, this water keeps the soil moist. Sandy soil that quickly filters water is dominant throughout Wilmington, but it will shrink and leave voids the foundation can settle into if it is too well-drained and dry. Trees in your yard may also have strong roots that penetrate the ground and move the soil. Your foundation will start to experience damage if the soil is unstable because it cannot support it adequately. 

Foundation Repair Solutions in Wilmington

All homes in Wilmington are unique, as are their foundations and foundation problems. Our team at Tar Heel understands that, which is why we offer a variety of foundation repair solutions that are tailored to meet your home’s specific needs. Settling foundations will be permanently stabilized and potentially lifted with our push piers, helical piers, or slab piers. Crawl space supports function similarly to shore up and possibly raise sagging floor joists and floors. If your home has a basement with cracking and bowing walls, carbon fiber straps act as reinforcements, and wall repair systems like wall anchors and wall beams also can help straighten the walls over time.

The guys just wrapped up at my house today. Tylor, Andrew and Stephen did a great job. They were prompt, communicated well and were happy to answer all of my questions. Corey was quick to come out and get a plan of action, which was much appreciated. With remodeling my home I’ve found it’s rare to have a great crew that executes as planned, arrives when scheduled, and leaves things cleaner than when they started. Tar Heel has just that. As a whole they have been a pleasure to work with and I have no complaints. Excited to have peace of mind when it comes to my basement.

Worth every penny, very happy from start to finish. We opted for the complete crawl space encapsulation, moisture control, and floor leveling. When the work was done and we discovered that their original plan missed a key leveling issue, they promptly came back out and did the extra work at no charge to us. Our salesman Jay was never pushy and had the patience of an angel. Thank you to the crew including Victor, Brian, Austin, Christian, Malik, Robert and James for doing a fantastic job.

This is just in the beginning stages. What I am rating the company on currently is the Certified Field Inspector John Dounoucos. John has been to our home twice. The first time was last week to learn what my concerns were and then quote me on the work that was needed. The first thing I would like to mention is John arrived on time and was very thorough and went over all the processes required. I told John I would be getting a second quote before making any decisions and he was good with that. The one thing that means the most to me is, John was NOT pushy, there was NO hard sell and NO you have to sign now or the price could change. John followed up with a text a few days later and we had just finished with our second quote. The price from the second company was fairly even, but I liked John's approach and the scope of work for this project. Looking forward to seeing how the job goes! I feel confident it will meet the high standards John outlined for us!

We had some downspouts installed. I’ll admit the first work that was done was apparently done incorrectly by one of the installers because we had worse problems and the work in general is not what I expected. (Based on previous and unrelated work by the same company). However, once it was brought to the company’s attention they responded quickly and stood behind their commitment and returned to handle repairs correctly. So far we are pleased with the repaired work..esthetically. We will need some rain before I can speak to resolution success.

Nyles, Tyree, & Jeff did an excellent job encapsulating my crawlspace. They explained everything and were very professional. When an issue came up concerning the crawlspace door, they made sure to contact the manager and a custom door was made for the space. I did have to call and inquiry about a few things and return visits but they were reaponsive and made sure the job was done. Great install team!!

Cannot recommend more highly. Tim Martin came out and knew immediately what to do. Professional crew created new drainage trough and installed a newer, more effective sump pump. Great communicators, prompt and swift service and fully warranted service. Exactly the kind of company I like doing business with. Would not hesitate to call them for help again and again (but, hope I don't have to…hah!!). Well done Tim Martin!
