About Me
By Sam from Winston-Salem, NC 27106

Adam, Edward and Chris did a super job for us today. They were exceptionally polite and their work was very neat and tidy. They even moved back some very heavy items. Also, everyone at your office has been helpful and professional. We enjoyed working with Garrett as well.

Foreman Matt and his crew members, Josh and Dwayne, were very efficient. They arrived on time, went straight to work. The finished product looks very clean. Our crawl space could probably be used as an additional space now.

Again, Josh Watson, Jason Green and William Reece were a terrific crew and Garrett Atkinson was incredibly helpful in diagnosing our crawlspace issues and getting the right people in to fix them. Thanks to all of you.

Title: General Manager
Hometown: Boone, NC
Garrett Atkinson

Hi, I’m Garrett!


I am a former collegiate wrestler and graduate of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I earned two Bachelor of Arts Degrees in Economics and Management & Society. I started my professional career working as a commercial construction supply salesman, specializing in fasteners, power tools and personal protection equipment. I am also the former owner of Feastie Boys, a food truck that toured parts of Boone, NC.


When I’m not working, I love spending time with my fur babies. My hobbies include snowboarding, jiu jitsu, fitness, traveling, cooking, coaching, and puzzles. I devour at least 2 to 3 podcasts a week and at least 2 audiobooks a month. I believe it’s very important to educate, push, and train yourself to always improve.


I have been a dedicated member of the Tar Heel family for 7 years now. I started out here as a part-time Certified Field Inspector and, after falling in love with the company, I decided to join full-time. I eventually became Sales Manager and got the opportunity to sharpen some much-needed coaching skills. I first came to Tar Heel because I truly believed in the mission and I’m still here today because that mission has only grown and led us to help so many families achieve peace of mind in their homes.


I am very proud and honored to lead this stellar team today!

Throughout the years, the center of the sidewalk had cracked due to failing fill soil under the slab. Once the crack had emerged, moisture began to seep under the slab and intrude through the basement wall below. After any inclement weather, a large water stain would become visible along the sidewalk where the water would pool as it slowly seeped through the … Continue readingWinston Salem, NC – Radio Station Sinking Sidewalk Raised »
