From Flooding to Dry and Finished Basement in Lansing, NC | Customer Testimonial

From Flooding to Dry and Finished Basement in Lansing, NC | Customer Testimonial

This church in Lansing had terrible basement flooding problems. During heavy rains they would get up to 18 inches of water in the basement, and when the water was finally gone, they had to deal with the aftermath: musty smells and mold problems. Ed S., decided that it was time to fix it once and for all.

After seeing Tar Heel Basement System billboard advertising, they made the call that would forever change the way the congregation had been using the basement. Ed was really impressed with the inspection and the thorough explanation provided by the system design specialist. He knew then and there that he had called the right company from the Job.

At first, they only wanted the water problem solved, which was accomplished when Tar Heel installed a BasementGutter interior drainage system, and a good sump pump system. “We’ve had all the rain and snow this winter and we haven’t had one problem yet!”

Seeing the great results after the waterproofing system was installed, they decided to call Tar Heel again, this time to finish the walls and floor of the basement, transforming a previously unused area of the building, into useful rooms for the congregation — including carpeted rooms for the children.”We’re just pleased. Very pleased. The whole church is pleased!” explains Ed. He’s been recommending Tar Heel to others in the community ever since. “I don’t think you’d do nobody wrong! Everything has just been wonderful!”

Basement, Crawl Space & Foundation Repair in NC: Tar Heel Basement Systems – About Us

Basement, Crawl Space & Foundation Repair in NC: Tar Heel Basement Systems - About Us

Meet Pete Burgess, owner of Tar Heel Basement Systems.

In this video Pete talks about his company, and the amazing journey that took his company from its humbles beginnings as a small, home based business to one of North Carolina’s most trusted provider of crawl space, basement and foundation waterproofing and repair services.

Pete moved from Chicago to North Carolina at the age of 50 to retire and relax. A few months later, “bored out of his mind” according to him, Pete decided to start working again and was hired by a local builder, from whom he learned much of his trade. One day he read an article in Fine Home Building Magazine about crawl space encapsulation and thought the approach of sealing a crawl space to protect it from mold, moisture and decay, made complete sense. He then had the crawl space of his own home encapsulated, and he liked the results so much that he decided to go into business, selling and advocating the practice throughout the state.

The business boomed and today Tar Heel Basement Systems is a large, successful operation, that is constantly growing and hiring and has since then branched out to provide basement waterproofing, foundation structural repair, and more recently, concrete lifiting and leveling with PolyRenewal™.

Battery-operated Backup Sump Pump to Keep Basement Dry During Power Outage | Customer Testimonial

Battery-operated Backup Sump Pump to Keep Basement Dry During Power Outage | Customer Testimonial

Scott H. from Boone already had a positive experience with Tar Heel Basement Systems. Several months ago, they had installed a full perimeter drainage system and a powerful SafeDri super sump pump system in his basement to keep it from flooding.

This system worked as promised, keeping his basement dry, but this savvy homeowner had a thought. He considered heavy storms, during which he heard his sump pump turn on way too often, and wondered what would happen to his basement if the power went out.

He quickly came to the conclusion that he needed a second layer of protection in case of a power outage, so he called Tar Heel again. Herman, one of our experienced system design specialists, suggested the SafeDri Battery Backup System. The SafeDri is a battery operated sump pump like no other in the industry. Unlike store bought backup pumps that run on Marine batteries, the SafeDri runs on a long-lasting battery, specifically designed to withstand long periods of being unused so that you can trust it will work when you need it.

Like many other satisfied Tar Heel Basement Systems customers, Scott now enJoys the peace of mind of knowing that his basement will stay dry even if the power goes out, no matter how heavy the rain.

Radon Mitigation & Basement Waterproofing in NC

When Jim G. first called Tar Heel Basement Systems, he was mainly concerned about the high radon levels that he had just found out were present in his home. After researching companies, he felt that Tar Heel was a company he could trust to solve the radon problem. Since he had to clear his basement to get the radon mitigation system installed, Jim decided to ask Tar Heel Basement Systems what other options they had to waterproof it as well. He met with Garret, the design specialist, a couple of times, looked at many options and finally came up with a solution that would fit his needs. “I was pretty pleased with his knowledge of the products that Tar Heel had; the solutions they provided. Garret was very pleasant to work with.”

Jim was also very impressed with the crews that came to install each phase of the job. They were all on time, cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day, and at the end of the job they cleaned up so well it was as if they were never there.

Jim is so happy with the entire experience, that he already referred Tar Heel Basement Systems to a couple of friends looking to have similar work done at their homes, and just recently to a friend who was very impressed with the Basement-to-Beautiful insulated wall panels installed in Jim’s basement.
