Kent Dunn

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.”

Tar Heel Basement Systems installed their patented basement window to replace the old rusted one that was allowing water intrusion. The window 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.

Within the last seven years, the sidewalk of this Winston Salem, NC home had began sinking. However, recently the sidewalk cracked creating a large trip hazard. The homeowenrs main goal was to have a stabilized and raised sidewalk. Tar Heel Basement Systems accomplished the homeowners goals by using the PolyRenewal method. Penny-sized holes were drilled in the slab while a two-part polyurethane foam was injected beneath, filling the void and raising the slab. The cracks were sealed using waterproof caulk to make sure the slab would stay in place throughout the years.

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 X-Grade Crawl Space Insulation to the walls, sealed the space with 20 mil thick CrawlSeal vapor … Continue readingMocksville, NC Crawl Space with Moisture Problems »
