Trade Associations & Advocacy:
Owner, Pete, is the Founder of FRANC (Foundation Repair Association of North Carolina), an association established to educate consumers, engineers, government officials, and industry partners, while communicating with the state and local standards, addressing community concerns, and serving as a sounding board for the structural repair industry in North Carolina. Pete also served on the Board of Directors for the Better Business Bureau of Northwest North Carolina 2013-2016. THBS offers Continued Education Courses to Realtors, Home Inspectors, Engineers, Architects & Contractors in order to ensure trade partners have the most up-to-date information when it comes to basement, crawl space & foundation science. Members of the leadership team also sit on different committees such as the Chamber Construction Industry Council and NC Building Performance Crawl Space Trade Council.
Tar Heel Basement Systems' "Pay It Forward" Initiative was established in 2012. For the last 5 years, every month the company selects a local nonprofit organization to give back to. This has ranged from donating crawlspace encapsulations to Habitat for Humanity to school supply drives for Guilford's Teacher Supply Warehouse; from healthy food drives for Second Harvest Food Bank to blood drives for Community Blood Center of the Carolina; from cooking meals at the Ronald McDonald House to hosting Big Brothers Big Sisters summer reading program. THBS offers paid community service hours every year to all of its team members to participate.
