Bonnie S. from Winston Salem noticed that the gap between the wood floor and the stone hearth of her fireplace was about two inches wide. She sealed the gap to prevent heat loss but was extremely worried when the seal came completely apart, indicating serious foundation movement.

She then began to shop for a solution and as a savvy homeowner; she called three different companies to see what they had to offer and to obtain quotes for the repair work necessary.

Tar Heel Basement Systems was among these companies, and Will Blake, one of the owners personally inspected her home. He thoroughly examined the situation and aided by pictures and a presentation, explained to Bonnie exactly what the problem was and the options to fix it.

She was very pleased with the knowledgeable, professional and courteous treatment she received which allowed her to make an informed decision. After the consultation visit, Bonnie chose Tar Heel Basement Systems to repair her home’s foundation. According to her, they had solutions no one else offered that made sense to her. They also gave her the best price.

She was even more impressed when the production crew came to perform the actual work. Not only did they effectively lift and restore the chimney to its original position by the closing the gap between the floor and the hearth; they took every necessary step to do the repair work without disturbing the yard and her home. According to Bonnie, right after completion, you wouldn’t know that her home just went through a major foundation repair procedure.

“This is by far the best home improvement experience I ever had with any company” — she says. “I would highly recommend this company to anyone needing help with a foundation issue, a chimney issue, a water issue, a leak. I would most highly recommend Tar Heel Basement Systems above anyone else.”

John R. of Lexington found that his home’s foundation was so badly damaged that the whole house was practically standing on a single column. The home was so structurally unsafe that John was afraid of crawling under the house to assess the situation, and general contractors he called to help him refused to touch it.

After making numerous calls, only one other company accepted the challenge, ut charged a hefty price for the solution, which was way over what John could afford. Desperate for help, he began researching for alternatives to save his home’s foundation and finally found Tar Heel Basement Systems, learning about all the unique, exclusive technologies offered by the company to permanently and affordably fix all types of structural problems, including the one in his home.

Upon inspection, the company decided to use helical piers to stabilize and lift the entire structure to its original position and then rebuild the foundation. Under the supervision of an on-site engineer, the helical piers were installed and John’s house now is 100% back on solid ground. John is very happy with the results, very impressed with the quality of the materials and with the technology employed, and is confident that his home foundation is now so well supported and so safe, he will never again have to worry about it.

The basement in Mark M.’s Burlington home had more problems than the typical wet basement. On top of the efflorescence stains – a clear sign of water seepage and poor foundation drainage – the walls of the basement were beginning to bow due to the enormous pressure exerted on them by the movement of the soil around the foundation -which would expand when over-saturated with water. 

Mark feared that these walls would eventually cave in, compromising his home’s structural integrity. After researching solutions and having a few area contractors inspect the property, he felt that Tar Heel Basement Systems was the only company proposing a solution that made sense for his home. During the inspection process, he asked many questions and the system design specialist was able to answer each one of them, in a way that made Mark feel confident hiring Tar Heel for the project. 

While very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism of our system design specialist, he was even more impressed with the crew that performed the actual installation. Not only were they clean, professional and courteous, they were also all extremely knowledgeable. 

“The thing that amazed me the most was (…) if you just stood there and watched them – and I did – I couldn’t figure out for a long time which one of these people was responsible and in charge of this operation because they just worked as a team!” — explains Mark.
He is very happy with the results. He will never have to worry about basement leaks, and the walls are stable again. “I was more impressed with the character of the people, of the installers, and their knowledge and their work ethics. It was amazing, absolutely amazing!”
