Hi, I’m Ken!


I grew up in the great town of Thomasville, NC where I currently reside today. I came to Tar Heel Basement Systems on the recommendation from a friend who assured me I would love working here. Thanks to years of work in general construction, and several years of basement/ crawlspace waterproofing experience, I am adept at creating permanent solutions for all of your waterproofing needs.


When I’m not working towards improving homes from the ground up, I enjoy being outdoors, going fishing and riding my four-wheeler.


I look forward to being the “hero in your home!”

Hi, I’m Kenny!

I lived on Long Island in New York until 2017 when I moved to the wonderful town of Lewisville, NC where I currently live today. Thanks to about 20 years of experience in construction work and 5 years of real estate, as well as a certification in home inspection, I have all of the tools and knowledge I need to fix up and protect your home for years to come.

I am a family-man so when I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my loved ones and soaking up the great outdoors. I have loved every moment of working for this great company and having the opportunity to improve the lives of so many of our customers just like you!

Hi, I’m Kendrick!
I am originally from Macon, G.A., but currently reside in Durham, N.C. Before becoming a part of the Tar Heel family, I worked as a foreman for a concrete contractor. I also have a background in structural restoration and waterproofing, which comes in handy when finding permanent solutions to keep your home healthy and stable. Additionally, I have a certification in OSHA 30 and suspended scaffolding. I came to Tar Heel because I wanted to “Own my Day” every day and do work that I can stand behind and be proud of.
When I’m not out in the field helping to improve homes I love spending time with my 3 wonderful sons as well as our 2 dogs and pet turtle. I also love to make music and write poetry.
I can’t wait to make a difference in your home!

Hi, I’m Mac!

I was born and raised in Hartsville, South Carolina but currently reside in Boone, NC. My past positions have given me a good amount of home improvement experience. My wife and I will be celebrating our 3 year anniversary soon and my step-daughter, Isabella, just turned 17. I have a cat named Sam and I enjoy golfing, fishing and antiquing in my spare time.


I look forward to meeting you and becoming your “hero in the home”.

Hi, I’m Jaimie!


I was born and raised in Valle Crucis, NC near Boone where I currently reside today. Prior to working at Tar Heel, I was the Operations Manager of Wyndham Hotel for 3 years and before that I grew up in the home improvement industry as my father is a licensed GC. My experience in the hospitality and tourism industry gave me the skills necessary to provide the best possible customer service to homeowners in need. I joined the Tar HeeI family after meeting Pete Burgess, the founder of THBS in 2013 and learning of what a great opportunity it would be for me.


I have been married for 7 years to my husband, Paul (who is also a proud member of the team) and we have 2 wonderful sons. When I’m not at a show spreading the word about our amazing company, I love being outdoors, spending time on our farm with my family, and stocking my honor-system produce wagon to provide my local community with fresh food.


I look forward to speaking with you and helping to solve your basement, crawl space and foundation problems.

Hi, I’m Marcus!


I was born and raised in wonderful Winston-Salem, NC where I still reside today. I joined the Tar Heel team after hearing a lot of great things about the company and the quality of workers here who support each other and encourage growth. I am a very hard-worker and I personally look forward to all of the skills and knowledge I can acquire here.


When I’m not looking for a permanent solution for your home, I like to shop, make music and spend time with my friends.


I look forward to being the “hero in your home!”

Hi, I’m Mo!


Thanks to many years working in the construction industry, I have a strong understanding of what homes need to remain healthy and safe. Before joining the Tar Heel family I worked for one of our sister branches, JES Foundation Repair as a Foreman. I gained a lot of experience leading a team in basement and crawlspace waterproofing and woodworking. I love working for Groundworks companies because they have always taken great care of me and our customers. I found myself drawn to Tar Heel in particular because of the positive energy. Tar Heel continues to feel like the best fit for me!


When I’m not looking for permanent solutions to all of your waterproofing and foundation needs, I love spending time with my son, Marvin. I also enjoy sports, cooking, and I have an affinity for cars.


I look forward to being the “hero in your home!”

Matt Mounts

Hi, I’m Matt!


I grew up in the High Country area of NC and relocated to Lexington, NC last year. I have been doing construction and home improvement work since I was 16 years old and love every minute of it. Though I had left Tar Heel for a while to pursue other opportunities I am back now because I love this company and I truly believe in what we do. Tar Heel is a perfect fit for me because we share the same mission which is to protect, repair and improve our customer’s greatest asset: their home.


When I’m not working towards making your home healthier for you, I love exploring new places and doing anything outdoors, such as boating and going four-wheeling.


I look forward to being the “hero in your home!”

Hi, I’m Mike!

I have dedicated almost a decade to my passion of helping people. After 8 years of working in the service industry, I enjoy going above and beyond for my customers, and I can truly say I have never met a stranger. I have been a wrestling coach at Watauga High School for over five years, and have a passion for developing and mentoring young wrestlers to become better versions of themselves by teaching them the value of teamwork, devotion, and good old-fashioned hard work.

I have years of experience in the construction field, having done everything from working as a painter to building homes from the ground up with contractors local to the High Country. I strive to use my industry knowledge to help every customer I encounter.

When I’m not hard at work, I can often be found in the great outdoors, where I’m  likely hiking or fishing. I enjoy spending time with my family and mini dachshund, which I consider more of a child than a pet!

I love meeting new homeowners and look forward to providing you with a permanent solution to your basement, crawlspace, or foundation needs!

Hi, I’m Naqwell!

I grew up in Goldsboro before moving to the wonderful city of Raleigh. Before joining the Tar Heel Basement Systems team I worked as a landscaper for a company called Queenscape Landscaping. I joined the Tar Heel Basement Systems family hoping to gain some knowledge and valuable tools. Since working here I have learned and grown increasingly in my role and have been told I am a great asset to my team.


When I’m not working towards improving the life of your home I love spending time with my big, loving family. I also really enjoying burying myself in a good book and traveling as often as possible.


I look forward to being the “hero in your home!”

Hi, I’m Jessica!


I’m the welcoming face you see at events. I was born and raised in the Lexington area of North Carolina. I have a love for remodeling houses and bringing life back into a house and making it a home! That is how I came to be a part of the team here at Tar Heel Basement Systems. I have over 10 years experience in customer service and 5 years of that was working in the catering and wedding industry, allowing me to gain experience in marketing, event management, and hospitality. I am currently working on my Associates in Business Administration to back up those years of experience!


While I’m not working, I enjoy hosting cookouts with friends and family, road trips, being outdoors, and finding the next best hidden gem at area yard sales.


I look forward to seeing you at area festivals and events!
