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. 

Why Choose Tar Heel Basement Systems?

For the sake of your family’s safety and the value of your Wilmington home, it’s crucial to maintain a solid foundation. Trust our knowledgeable staff’s experience, nationally recognized service, and warranty-backed solutions to fix foundation problems once and for all.

Justin Vandergriff Gregory Hicks did a tremendous job installing my Sump pump, explaining what I should expect, and returning the next day to show me what they actually did. They both deserve 5 Star rating.

I had just purchased a property and needed work on the crawlspace. Pete came out and did the initial inspection and explained everything thoroughly. We scheduled our service and then Ray W, Justin U, Greg H, and Eduardo Z came to do work and were extremely professional. At the end Ray walked me through everything they had done for an overall great experience!

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!!

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.

Five stars is not enough for the crew that worked on our crawl space this past week! Mike J, Dillon Y, and Andy L were the most knowledgeable, hard working team we have ever seen. They constantly went above and beyond to offer the very best customer service by repairing several items not covered in our initial quote. If you need help with your basement or crawl space look no further! Thank you guys for giving us piece of mind.

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.

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!
