Crawl Space Repair and Encapsulation in Winston-Salem, NC

Homeowners in Winston-Salem, NC, may not think much about what is happening underneath the floors of their homes. However, if your home is built on a crawl space foundation, various issues can affect that dark area under your house and go unnoticed until the problems spread into your home. Tar Heel Basement Systems is here to help you tackle any issues you may have with your crawl space so you can avoid future problems. 

If you have an unencapsulated crawl space with open crawl space vents, then humid air is likely being pulled in. Then, this warm air rises up through the rest of your home. This phenomenon, known as the stack effect, brings mold and unclean air particles into your home. Over time, you’re left with an extremely uncomfortable living environment. Repairing and encapsulating your damaged crawl space is the best way to prevent pests, mold, and other harmful organic materials from entering your home.

Crawl Space Problem Signs in Winston-Salem

Due to the muggy summers of Winston-Salem, your unencapsulated crawl space can easily become a very humid environment where mold and wood rot thrives. A certified Tar Heel inspector can easily identify notable crawl space problem signs almost as soon as they enter your crawl space. Once inside your crawl space, they will notice things like an infestation of pests like mice, termites, and other critters. Remediating these issues is extremely necessary to maintain a healthy living environment.  

Common Causes of Crawl Space Damage in Winston-Salem

When it comes to the most likely causes of crawl space damage, many of them are due to the wet climate and easily drainable, but also frequently damp soil. While it is also a problem sign, humidity can be what causes other issues inside your crawl space. As mentioned above, having a crawl space with open crawl space vents leads to a plethora of issues that can lead to even more crawl space damage. Being aware of what is causing your crawl space problems can be beneficial, but having a professional evaluate your space is even better.  

Crawl Space Repair and Encapsulation Solutions in Winston-Salem

To fully protect your crawl space, you should consider crawl space encapsulation, as that is the only way to keep harmful levels of condensation out of the space. Encapsulation involves the installation of a crawl space vapor barrier, a sump pump, a crawl space dehumidifier, and more. If you had a vented crawl space, vent covers are added and sealed off, preventing moisture and outside air from seeping in. At Tar Heel, we specialize in crawl space encapsulation and repair solutions that are meant to permanently protect your crawl space from damaging elements.

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.

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.

David P. and Mathias replaced the foundation pillars in my basement. They were professional, experienced, and patient in their work. I felt like they treated my home as they would their own, and they wanted to be sure that I understood and was comfortable with all work performed. I would highly recommend Tar Heel Basement Systems to others.

Jeffrey Traub came out the day after I called the company. I had a large tree root that appeared to be going under my house and I was concerned it could cause cracks in my slab. He was on time and very thorough in examining my house. While he didn't find any problems he did spot a couple of issues for me to keep my eye on. He also explained I probably had lots of tree roots going under my house and that I just couldn't see them. My neighborhood had been built on land that was heavily wooded. He also explained HOW they fix a SLAB house that has foundation problems. I had envisioned all sorts of nightmare scenarios such as having to move all my belongings out and having my new floors ripped up. Luckily that is NOT how they repair it. Just knowing if that horrible day ever came where I would need their services, that it wouldn't be the nightmare I had thought, put my mind at ease. Jeffrey's explanation of the care they take to preserve my flooring while making repairs was very reassuring. The person who set up the appointment was also very thorough in asking questions to determine what the issue might be and which serviceman to send. Since I don't have a basement or crawl space I never thought I could have foundation problems. I was wrong but luckily I do not have any at this time and thanks to Jeffrey I am knowledgeable about what to look for in order to catch problems in their early stage when it is easiest and cheapest to fix. I would definitely recommend this company and suggest you ask for Jeffrey Traub to come to your house.

Josiah, the foreman, and his fellow colleagues, Gustavo and Rodrigo, did an excellent job in transforming our crawlspace from a dark, dirty and damp space, into a space I no longer will be afraid or worried to go into if the need arises.They were all three very friendly and polite! If one could recommend a business because of it’s employees I definitely would do so. They went out of their way to do a good job and treat 2 old ladieswith respect and kindness. (They also took junk away from under the house that had been there for over 50 years!)It was also Rodrigo’s birthday and he even let us sing Happy Birthday to him!I would recommend this company gor crawlspace work if anyone should ask me especially because of it’s workers!

I was very pleased with the service that that John, Jr and Brady a performed. John went above and beyond to make sure that I was satisfied. He is a very knowledgeable person and knows what he is doing. I enjoyed talking with him he is a very good people person. If I were to need any more service from this company I would definitely ask for Jr. He made sure that my doors would all latch due to jacking up the floors and made all the necessary adjustments to see that they did so. He did what it took to get the job done right. I wish he had it have been here the first time! Thank you John for a job well done! Ray Johnson

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.

Jordan, Ian, and Nathan were professional, polite, respectful, and informative. Ian and Nathan did the installation and I'm very impressed with the job they did. I don't want to leave out the young lady who answered the phone when I called with questions. I apologize if I'm wrong; I think her name is Sarah. She is also very polite and was eager to help. My experience with Tarheel Basement Systems is positive and I recommend them highly.

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.

We had the "A Team" (Nyles R. Jeff T. and Tyree M.) come out to do our crawl space, and they lived up to their title. Nyles walked me through all the work they were going to do, he clearly explained it and was very patient with me, and all my questions; even as I crawled around their work space, they took the time to answer all of my questions. As an artisan I can tell when someone has done good, mediocre or bad work. Even if you don't know the work itself, you can tell by how the work is being performed, executed and completed; the detail and dedication to the work itself. Nyles, Jeff and Tyree, the "A Team", were Awesome!
