    Customer Review

    By Bonnie D.
    Rumson, NJ

    Victor really did go out of his way to satisfy my concerns, promptly attending to minor corrections, major reworking of a very old laundry sink pump that ceased to work once it was moved for the job, and working in the cold windy outdoors to make the siding that had to be cut to install the pipes functionally sealed and also looking good. Never once did he display annoyance at my concerns and didn't ask me to pay until ALL my concerns were addressed.

The causes of a wet basement

Did you know you can have water issues in your basement without heavy rains or obvious standing water? It's easy enough to see water coming through a crack in your floor or basement wall, but what's the real cause of your basement water problem?

clay bowl effect

The Clay Bowl Effect

Excavated soil that's replaced around a completed foundation isn't as dense and tightly packed as undisturbed soil farther away. As a result, water collects in the soil immediately surrounding the house, putting pressure on foundation walls and causing cracks.

hydrostatic pressure

Hydrostatic Pressure

As soil around your foundation becomes soaked with moisture, it expands and puts pressure on your foundation. The water will then work its way through any opening available, including cracks and openings around pipes or windows.


Before and After
  • Cherry Hill Home Foundation Repair and Basement Refinished
    Before
    Cherry Hill Home Foundation Repair and Basement Refinished
    After

    Cherry Hill homeowner had multiple cracks in his basement foundation and basement flooding. Quality 1st completed the foundation repair and fixed the cracks in the wall, waterproofed the basement using the WaterGuard draining system, then refinished the basement using ThermalDry Wall System. ThermalDry not only increases energy savings in the home as its foil face reflects heat back into the basement, but is made of inorganic materials which means it will not grow mold and will keep water out!

    The homeowner of this Riverton home experienced water in the basement after heavy rains. Quality 1st Basement Systems transformed this basement by installing several waterproofing products. BrightWall basement paneling was installed in order to give the basement a fresh new facelift. It not only looks great, but it's durable too. BrightWall is made out of flexible plastic and directs water seepage to a sump pump and away from the basement floor. Now this basement never needs a paint job and will stay dry during heavy rains.
