Tar Heel Foundation Solutions specializes in foundation repairs in the greater Charlotte metro area. For foundation repair in Charlotte, we are number one with services that include not just repairing residential foundation damage but new construction pilings and commercial deep foundation construction as well.
Apart from foundation repair, we also do crawl space encapsulation and repair.
While you might not often think about your home’s foundation, the effects when it starts to fail can be seen almost everywhere.
Cracks form in walls, floors and ceilings. Doors and windows begin to stick. Even your chimney could begin to tilt.
If you begin to notice symptoms such as these, it is time to call a foundation specialist to inspect your property. The longer you put off foundation fixes, the more costly the symptoms could become.
If settlement has caused your foundation to start to crack and fail, our foundation underpinning services might be in order.
In foundation underpinning, we install helical piers or push piers, sinking them until they reach a load-bearing strata of soil. Then, the piers are attached to your foundation via brackets and the weight of the building is transferred to the piers, ensuring the foundation won’t sink or shift because of the weaker soil near the ground.
We use only the best products made in the industry, produced by Earth Contact Products, the leading manufacturer of foundation repair products.
If you have a basement wall or retaining wall that is bowing, possibly because of hydrostatic pressure from overly saturated soil pressing against it, we have a fix for that, too.
Three fixes, in fact.
Wall anchors stabilize cracking and bowed foundation walls.
Helical tiebacks straighten and also strengthen basement and retaining walls.
Rhino Carbon Fiber strips give strength to bowing walls, keeping them from bowing further.
If your house has a crawl space that hasn’t been capsulated, chances are it is a damp, dark place.
The dark part isn’t an issue. The damp part, on the other hand, could be a big one.
Crawl spaces that flood or even suffer from excess humidity can be home to several significant problems:
The key to solving these problems starts with keeping the moisture out. That is where crawl space encapsulation comes into play.
Crawl space encapsulation involves using installing a vapor barrier on the crawl space walls and floors that can keep damaging moisture and pests from entering through the walls or floor. Other methods are also employed to seal off and waterproof the crawl space.
If water damage has weakened floor joists or other structural parts of your crawl space, we can fix that too, building supports for weakened joists or replacing them if the damage is too severe.
