"Super young men and great representatives for your company. I put a recommendation on line." Read Full TestimonialBarbara & Sanford L. of Ruffin, NC
Customer Testimonial“We highly recommend the crew (Jonathan R., Edward, & Josh W.) for the WOW Service Award. They were fast, conscientious, and professional and did an excellent job. Super young men and great representatives for your company. I put a recommendation on line. Liked how you proposed to put the piers in (down to bedrock). Your price was somewhat lower but we just liked your proposal better.”Barbara & Sanford L.
Here's what Dan M. thought...
Everything about the job from the quote and summary details to the final bill was handled in a professional manner that is not common in the construction business. The initial proposal laid out the exact details of the problem, scope of the work and the price in a very easy to read document and schematic drawing. At each stage of the process the job supervisor called me to discuss the job stages and next steps. I must say in my 17 years of dealing with contractors I have never been treated with such concern and in such a polite manner over every job detail from the entire crew - and I mean everybody. My job was completed on time as promised and there were no surprises on the price either. The sump pump system works as promised and we now have a super dry basement. High highly recommend Tarheel Basement Systems of Boone, NC.

About Pete Burgess's Tar Heel Basement Systems
Pete and Will met around 2006 while Will was helping his father-in-law run home inspections. Will was a licensed radon mitigation specialist running his own business at the time, so Pete asked Will if he might be interested in joining the Tar Heel team. Will joined team Tar Heel Basement Systems and today Pete and Will work together to run and manage the business. Will is now the company's General Manager and Sales Manager.
The company began by specializing in crawlspace encapsulation and now specializes in basement waterproofing, radon testing and mitigation, as well as foundation repair. The company has grown steadily, even through the recession, and the original fleet of one cargo van has become a fleet of five box trucks and five cargo vans. We now employ 42 people.
The evolution of this small High Country CleanSpace business in 2003 to Tar Heel Basement Systems today is very exciting and we look forward to continued future growth and success.
