About Us

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.

As you can see, Advanced Basement Solutions Inc. is a family owned and operated company, that specializes in basement waterproofing and foundation repairs in Western Pennsylvania. Our goal is to offer the best quality waterproofing and structural repair services at a reasonable cost, while always putting our customers first. We take great pride in the many services we offer.

Install 91’ of internal french drain with 2 sump pumps and 2 battery back up sump pump systems

I express my appreciation to Mike and his crew for the excellent job they performed on 1/23/19 & 1/24/19 in the installation of 91’ of internal French drains and 4 sump pumps in my home. All members of this crew were very conscientious and hard working. Mike took all the time needed to answer all my questions and to keep me advised of the work as his crew progressed thru the job. I really have a hard time finding the words to compliment this crew. The quality of men in this crew, their work ethic, demeanor, and friendliness are such a positive reflection of your company. I look forward to working with these gentlemen when they return to install the outside downspout piping. Also, I am recommending your company to a friend of my wife who is having some dampness and mold issues in her basement.

Interior French Drain Installation

Mike and his crew did an excellent job. They were on time, efficient and didn’t cut corners. They were very careful to not make a mess and cleaned up prior to leaving. We found a plumbing problem around the waste stack and had to leave a portion of the trench open for the plumber. The guys left two pails of gravel and a bag of cement so I could finish the floor once the repair was done. I am fairly picky about work don’t at my house and I asked to “fine tune” a couple of spots in the trench and around the pump discharge location. Mike accommodated my requests without hesitation. Good team and good work!
