Foundation Problem Signs in Winston-Salem

Most problem signs that point to foundation damage are clearly visible throughout your Winston-Salem house. These include cracking and tilting chimneys, uneven floors, cracked bricks, wall cracks, bowing walls, drywall nail pops, and jamming windows and doors. Keep an eye out for these issues and worsening conditions, and reach out to Tar Heel right away. They will only grow in severity and continue to threaten your family and home’s safety, so it is important to promptly identify and repair them.

Causes of Foundation Damage in Winston-Salem

Errors can happen during your home’s construction, but there are other more common causes of your foundation damage, namely Winston-Salem’s weather and soil conditions. Winston-Salem receives an average of 45 inches of rain each year, with most rain falling during the summer. This keeps the soil fairly moist. The sandy loam topsoil may drain well, but if it is too well-drained, it can erode as well as shrink during dry conditions. Additionally, the clay loam subsoil retains water from oversaturation, and it will swell and exert hydrostatic pressure on the foundation. When these soils become unstable, they fail to properly support the foundation, and you will start to notice visible symptoms. 

Foundation Repair Solutions in Winston-Salem

For foundation repair to be effective and long-lasting, your Winston-Salem home needs customized repairs. That is why we offer a range of foundation repair solutions including different types of pier systems – helical piers, push piers, and slab piers – to address foundation settlement. If you have sagging crawl space floors and floor joists, crawl space support posts will reinforce and help lift them. If your home has a basement with cracking and bowing walls, carbon fiber supports will stabilize them, and wall beams and wall anchors can help move them back towards their original positions. All these permanent solutions are made in the United States and are protected by nationally backed, long-term, transferrable warranties.

Why Choose Tar Heel Basement Systems?

Your foundation is responsible for upholding your entire Winston-Salem house, so it is important to maintain its strength and structural integrity. Various forces can put your home’s foundation and your family’s safety in jeopardy, but you can combat them with help from local experts.

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.

Tar Heel Basement Systems is a great company! Of course we all know a company is only as good as the people who represent it. And I must say, Jagwon and Stanley who installed my basement system clearly are proud of their product and of their company. These two men arrived on time, were extremely polite and courteous, worked hard and very fast to give me (the client) the best job possible. Jagmon spent the necessary time with me to answer all my questions and kept me in the loop so I knew what all the steps were and why they were important. My only regret is I only have one basement to do. But you can bet I will be telling my friends and neighbors where they must go for solving their basement issues…Tar Heel Basement Systems!

We had the pleasure of having Nathan out to our house this afternoon to address and go over a water intrusion issue in our crawl space. Nathan was very friendly, informative and professional and we feel fully informed and educated and able to make a good decision as far as the remediation of our problem. Highly recommend this company.

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.

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!

Brian and John was so professional, crawl space looks so much better, and they cleaned up their scrap. I'm anxious for a damp free crawl space. Robert and Steven, James and Brandon all did a very good job with the basement waterproofing. Everything looks so good and they cleaned their scrap too. Can't wait for a damp free basement. Seth Brown, the inspector that gave us the quote was very nice too. I recommend Tar Heel Basement to anybody. Their staff is great.

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

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.

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!
