Winston-Salem, NC (May 30, 2018) – Tar Heel Basement Systems (THBS) announced today that it has acquired the assets of Hutch Home Solutions, Inc. formerly a Dr. Energy Saver franchise and opened two additional locations in Wilmington and Goldsboro, NC.

Harry Hutchins, owner of Hutch Home Solutions will join THBS as Operations Manager, Eastern Carolina region. “Hutch”, a Marine Corps Veteran, is a licensed general contractor and brings an extensive background in home building and residential construction. “I’m impressed with what Tar Heel Basement Systems has been doing and look forward to becoming a part of the organization,” Hutch said.

Prior to the acquisition, Tar Heel Basement Systems ran all operations out of Winston-Salem, NC and has been serving customers in the Greensboro and Winston-Salem region since 2003. The company specializes in residential and commercial foundation repair, crawl space encapsulation, basement waterproofing, and concrete leveling.

In late 2017, Tar Heel Basement Systems merged with Groundworks and began operating as a subsidiary of its new parent company. Becoming a part of Groundworks provided the company with additional resources and access to capital, freeing the company from focusing on materials sales. The result has been a new found ability to focus on growth, allowing the business to expand eastward across the state. Since joining Groundworks, Tar Heel Basement Systems has experienced tremendous growth throughout western North Carolina and especially in the Winston-Salem/Greensboro area.


“The new locations in Wilmington and Goldsboro will allow us to bring our customer focus and world-class solutions to customers in the entire eastern region of our state,” said Pete Burgess, CEO of Tar Heel Basement Systems. “We’ve been helping homeowners in the Winston-Salem / Greensboro area for over 15 years and now have the freedom to bring our expertise to a new part of the state.” Tar Heel Basement Systems was established in 2003 with a mission to help customers protect their greatest asset, their home. “We bring that customer-centric focus directly to Eastern North Carolina. You will never find us pushing materials or products as a “dealer” or franchise. That, I believe, is what truly sets us apart.”

The new locations will include both service and installation staff, increasing coverage and customer service efficiency in the region. “We are excited that this new location will open up dozens of new well-paying local career opportunities. We’re aggressively hiring many new positions right now,” said Garrett Atkinson, General Manager.
Tar Heel Basement Systems is a member of the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce.
