A New Duet Comes To Nashville as Contractor Nation Partners With Longtime Dealer, Continuing Network's Expansion

SEYMOUR, CT - Contractor Nation is pleased to announce its partnership with a longtime dealer in one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S., the latest in a series of strategic investments by North America’s leading network of home improvement and home services contractors.

Contractor Nation has purchased a stake in Frontier Basement Systems, a Nashville, TN area -based provider of basement waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation, foundation repair, and concrete leveling services. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“We are partnering with Frontier so we can take the business to even higher heights,” said Contractor Nation Founder and CEO Larry Janesky. “We plan to combine our resources so we can create a much bigger footprint in Nashville.”

Frontier has been in business since 2002and employs 80 people at its home office in Joelton, TN. The company serves over 450 towns and cities in the Greater Nashville area and Kentucky. Layne and Judy Gebers will remain in place as co-owners of the company, and their son, Dustin, will continue to serve as general manager.

“We are really looking forward to our partnership with Larry Janesky and his team at Contractor Nation,” said Layne Gebers, who serves as president of Frontier. “I’ve always told our employees that I want to make their dreams come true and this is a great move for our team.”

“We’re creating a better future for our employees,” added Judy Gebers.

Contractor Nation has been active in the past month, making a series of moves to strengthen the one-of-a-kind network it started  29 years ago. Last month, Contractor Nation acquired Master Service Companies, a Knoxville, TN-based company with additional offices in Winston-Salem, NC, and Indianapolis, IN. Last week, Contractor Nation launched a new operation in Columbus, OH that will provide basement waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation, and foundation repair services in the city and surrounding areas. Contractor Nation has also recently launched a network for roofing contractors - Klaus Roofing Systems.

Janesky started in the industry 32 years ago when he founded Connecticut Basement Systems, a basement waterproofing company, which has since expanded into basement finishing, crawl space retrofits and other services. Since then, the company has significantly expanded and become the state’s dominant provider, performing work in more than 65,000 homes. In 1990, while still running Connecticut Basement Systems, Janesky launched networks for basement waterproofing, crawl space repair, and structural repair. These networks, as well as other companies, have become part of the Contractor Nation network, which is committed to creating even greater success for home improvement and home service businesses across North America.

The businesses and networks in Contractor Nation include Basement Systems, CleanSpace, Total Basement Finishing, Dr. Energy Saver, Attic Systems, Treehouse Internet Group, The School of Entrepreneurship, MoreHouse Finance, Supportworks, National Radon Defense, Klaus Roofing Systems and Junkluggers.
