    Customer Testimonial

              Your web site described the exact problem that my house was suffering from (sagging floors) and what you did to correct. Other sites just dealt with the foundation. Kent did a thorough check of my crawl space (no easy feat) before making any recommendations. He showed me the smart jack hardware (a lot better than the standard floor jacks available at the local hardware)and he provided/reviewed literature detailing the causes of sagging floors and what would be done to fix the problem (in detail). You office staff was very polite and the installation crew did not leave any supplies or trash under house or in the yard- they were very clean.

    Customer Testimonial

              The total experience with Tar Heel Basement- Sales, installation crew and managers was an incredible good experience. Always on time and always willing to answer any questions. The final product was of very high quality despite the challenges and especially difficult access with an elder farm house. This is the best contractor experience we have had to date. The company is very professional in dealing with the sales process and the quality of proposals and final contracts are just impressive. If you need your basement or crawlspace issues resolved - this is the company you want doing the work.

    Customer Testimonial

              Your contract price was very fair and your salesman was extremely thorough in his presentation and explanation of the process. Kent Dunn, Salesman, instilled in us a sense of confidence in your company. When unforeseen problems arose during installation, no surcharges or extra fees were added to our bill to cover the increased work to complete the installation. We were impressed with the integrity of your company for this.

    Customer Testimonial

              Yesterday, Josh, William and Edward finished the Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System and the WaterGuard System at our home. We are very pleased. We wanted to tell you that Josh, Edward and William were great to work with. They are very nice young men and did an excellent job. They were personable, caring and wanted to do good work. They cleaned up exceptionally well and made sure everything was to our satisfaction. In today's world, it is sometimes hard to find individuals that have those qualities. You are blessed to have these three young men working for you. We have to admit, we were nervous about the project, but working with Josh, Will and Edward made it much easier than we anticipated. Thank you and give these guys a pat on the back for us. Darlene & Earl

    Kathi G. of Winston Salem, NC

    Customer Testimonial

              We noticed water damage in one of our downstairs bedrooms so we called Tar Heel Basement Systems to come and diagnose the problem. Kent inspected the crawl space, found the problem and offered a solution so that it would not happen again. Before our crawl space was scary; dirty, damp and cold. It also affected the air quality of the offices above it. Now, the crawl space is white, clean and temperature controlled. You can even notice the better air quality in the rooms above the crawl space. Kent explained everything in a way that I could understand it. He even provided me with written materials. The installation crew consisted of Steve, Josh and Joe; they were professional, but personable and left the space immaculate (better than how they found it). The office staff was very professional and provided great customer service. Everyone went above and beyond to make sure the everyday operations at the Ronald McDonald House were not disturbed during the installation.

    Customer Testimonial

              Just wanted to let you know how pleased I was with your crew and the way the job was done. All I can say is "Top Notch" all the way. Jonathan gave me a card that I was supposed to email my experience to let Tarheel Basements know how pleased I am. I went to the web site but I am not sure if my praise of the crew and the job got where it should go. I am very pleased with everything and wanted to let you know, let Tarheel Basements know, and hope the crew gets the WOW! Service Award. From the very beginning, from your sales rep, Kent, to your office staff, Mary, to the crew that did the job, Jonathan, Josh, Jake, and Ed, I have nothing but praise for your company. Outstanding job, outstanding, crew, outstanding staff! Could not have been more pleased Thank you!

Meet Kent Dunn from Tar Heel Basement Systems

Title: System Design Specialist

Hometown: Winston-Salem, NC

Kent Dunn from Tar Heel Basement Systems

Hi, my name is Kent Dunn.  I’m proud to be a Systems Design Specialist with Tar Heel Basement Systems.  Coupled with a Bachelor of Architecture from The University of North Carolina at Charlotte, I bring twenty-five years of design and build experience, with projects that range from high-rise hotels in Indonesia, construction documents for the now famous San Antonio River Walk, to waterfront restaurants and brew pubs in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, and scores of residential projects, designed and built.

Born and raised in Winston-Salem, I’ve been forever drawn to the tranquil and creative energy in and around the Triad.  In my “spare” time, I enjoy great food, architecture, fine art, music, golf, bowling, and, well, many, many other activities.

“I consider the world to be cleaner, healthier, safer, and simply better off, with our company, than without it, it’s just that simple.”

Case Studies I've worked on:

Before and after photos from jobs I've worked on:
  • Mocksville, NC Crawl Space with Moisture Problems
    Before
    Mocksville, NC Crawl Space with Moisture Problems
    After

    This vented crawl space in Mocksville, NC was damp and moist due to high humidity levels and exposed dirt. The thin, plastic liner that was covering parts of the crawl space floor was doing very little if anything to keep the moisture levels down. Tar Heel Basement Systems pulled that inefficient liner, buried a perimeter drain to transfer groundwater to a sump pump, attached SilverGlo insulation to the walls, sealed the space with 20 mil thick CleanSpace vapor barrier and installed a SaniDry CX dehumidifier. This crawl space will now have the appropriate humidity levels all year round and is more energy efficient than ever.

  • New and Improved Basement Window
    Before
    New and Improved Basement Window
    After

    This basement in Walkertown, NC had water leaking in through the walls and the gaps around the window. Tar Heel Basement Systems installed their EverLast Basement Window to replace the old rusted one that was allowing water intrusion. The EverLast Widow is made specifically for the basement environment, so it will never rot, rust, be eaten by termites or need to be painted. The end result is a much tighter, energy efficient window that looks great.

  • Musty Smell in Home Cleared with Crawlspace Encapsulation in Winston Salem, NC
    Before
    Musty Smell in Home Cleared with Crawlspace Encapsulation in Winston Salem, NC
    After

    This home in Winston Salem had a damp and musty crawlspace with falling insulation and bugs. The homeowner wad mostly concerned about the musty odor that was coming into her home from the crawlspace. Tar Heel Basement Systems did a full renovation on her crawlspace by replacing the failing insulation with SilverGlo Crawlspace insulation. The old dingy plastic was removed, the vents were closed and the 20 mil. thick CleanSpace vapor barrier was installed. Lastly, the crew hooked up our commercial grade SaniDry dehumidifier.

    This new and improved crawlspace no longer has an odor that permeates into the upstairs. In fact, the space can now be used for storage all year long.
