It all started in 2001 when Tara Hoey and Bill Hoey met. Bill had worked as a general contractor for 14 years, and Tara had worked in the waterproofing industry for 6 years. After getting married, they opened Advanced Basement Solutions in 2003. The business started with 2 trucks working out of their garage and home office. By 2006, the business grew into a fleet of trucks with around 26 employees, 2 warehouses on 12 acres and a 1,500 square foot office.
After graduating college and working in a management position for a manufacturing company for a few years, Tara's son, Christopher, decided to join the ABS team in 2013 as the General/Sales Manager. He had worked prior for the company on the crew as a laborer and foreman for several years through high school and college, so he has full knowledge on all aspects of the business, including sales, installation as well as products used. Christopher's wife, Cindy, also joined the company as Operations Manager in 2013. Her quality assurance and marketing background helps her focus on continuous improvement and focus on customer service, quality of products and workmanship. She expanded the ABS family further in 2016 by having a daughter, Gabriella.
