Our front porch stairs had sunk considerably causing the last step up to our house to be too high and tripping people all the time! We found Target Basement Systems and they got it fixed within a week. There work was precise and attention to detail excellent. We were very pleased with how quickly they scheduled our repair (the next week). They showed up exactly as promised and it looks great. You can’t even tell it was repaired. I highly recommend Roswin S, Justin H and Chris A. Only regret is not finding them sooner.

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.

I used Tar Heel Basement Systems due to excellent service previously provided in two other homes in another city and the Raleigh branch did not disappoint from the consultation provided by Brian, the coordination from Ryan and the excellent service from Evan, Onyx and Derrick. The service crew was very courteous, polite and professional and their ethical behavior produced outstanding results.

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.

Just had our crawlspace and foundation repaired and seated… looks like everything was completed as promised…. Hopefully we’ll see benefits in our heating/cooling costs shortly, and also be able to notice more level floors following their repairs. Gary and Robert were so respectful and we really appreciate all of their work!

Cameron and Mekhi did a great job of installing a crawl drain and sump pump. They arrived on time, worked diligently, and completed the job sooner than was expected. All the while they answered my questions and provided a complete walk (crawl) through at the end. They were courteous and tried very hard to be sure I was pleased with the work. Excellent work by both of them!

History

Beginning as a ‘one-man operation’, Tar Heel Basement Systems began after founder Pete Burgess encapsulated his own crawl space. Seeing the improvement the system had on his own home, Burgess felt compelled to share with others. From these humble beginnings grew a multi-service operation offering foundation repair, crawl space repair, basement waterproofing, and concrete lifting. 

From their offices in Raleigh and Winston-Salem, Tar Heel serves all of North Carolina and parts of Southwest Virginia in areas including Boone, Durham, Greensboro, Rocky Mount, and nearby.

In November 2017, Tar Heel merged with Groundworks after ensuring their legacy of customer, employee, and community dedication would be continued. This allowed Tar Heel to grow beyond artificial boundaries and allows access to upgraded training and products.
