Home: it’s where you grow your family, welcome friends, and create lasting memories. Nothing should stand in the way of that. However, as the concrete slabs in and around your home begin to settle, significant problems, such as trip hazards, pooling water, and cracks in the concrete begin to occur. Finding a permanent solution that addresses the true cause of your concrete settlement is the surest way for you to get on with your life’s happenings and enjoy peace of mind.
How did your concrete slab get this way?
Concrete is often poured over recently backfilled soil around a home after construction. This loose soil settles over time, creating a void under the concrete. Another common occurrence is erosion of soil under the slab. As water runs down through the cracks and joints in the concrete, it washes the soil out as it passes through. These voids cause your concrete to shift and settle, creating cracked, uneven surfaces and dangerous tripping hazards.
Sinking concrete can turn sidewalks, pool decks, driveways, and concrete floors into unattractive safety hazards. It can be a real problem if you are:
- Concerned about the liability of visitors tripping on your property;
- Preparing your home for sale and hoping to make a great first impression;
- Simply wanting to enjoy your home with family and friends.
Tar Heel Basement Systems can fix your sinking indoor and outdoor concrete problems so you can enjoy your driveway, sidewalk or patio again without worry. Using a structural foam called PolyLEVEL, your concrete slabs can be permanently lifted and leveled in a matter of a few hours. What’s more, that slab can be walked on or driven on within 15 minutes of completion. This state-of-the-art product is less expensive and disruptive than mud jacking or total concrete replacement.

“I can’t say enough great things about Tar Heel Basement Systems. Everyone went above and beyond to provide an exceptional experience. We’re looking to sell our house and found an issue with our foundation and an area around the pool where the concrete wasn’t level. Mike did a fantastic job explaining everything to us so that we could make an informed decision. It is obvious that they have a culture that truly is centered on the customer.” ~ B. Hunt
“I highly recommend Tar Heel Basement Systems to anyone who needs this kind of work. They did two jobs for us: foundation leveling and creating a crawl-space vapor barrier. Both were meticulously, professionally done. Both crews and staff were pleasant and easy to work with.” ~ P. Averitt
