Homeowner in Princeton contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems due to water seepage in her basement after a heavy rainstorm. The homeowner was midway through renovating her home and decided to wait on waterproofing her basement. During the next rain storm, she had even more water in her basement which caused severe damage to her flooring. Upon inspection, Quality 1st Basement Systems determined that the basement flooding was due to water coming in through cracks in the foundation.
Quality 1st Basement Systems addressed the cracks in the foundation. To waterproof the basement, a full perimeter system was installed to drain the water out of the basement. WaterGuard is specially designed to accept water from the walls preventing the water from ever entering the basement. There is spacing along the WaterGuard system that other waterproofing systems do not have which make the system able to better accept the leaking water. WaterGuard drains to this homeowner's new TripleSafe Sump Pump, which contains three pumps so it always works. One of the pumps has a battery back-up in the event of power outages.
To prevent any water vapor from entering the basement walls, Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a CleanSpace Wall Liner. CleanSpace is a white, 20 mil thick plastic liner that is fitted along the walls sealing off the rest of the basement. CleanSpace will last as long as this Princeton home and keep the basement dry. The bright, white coloring of CleanSpace also really brightened this unfinished basement. This basement is now clean, dry, and humidity-free!
A homeowner, Lucy S., in Princeton called Quality 1st Basement Systems worried that the dark spots on their basement wall were mold. The home had a cinder block foundation, and there was a musty smell in the basement.
System Design Specialist, Dan McNally, went out to evaluate the home. He was able to asses the problem, determine a solution, and suggested that the homeowner upgrade their present dehumidifier to the SaniDry Dehumidification System. Most dehumidifiers on the market are just not powerful enough to work for the entire basement space like SaniDry. BrightWall wall panels would keep the humidity and water vapor from passing through the walls into the space, preventing further mold growth. Dan also recommended replacing a window that was leaking water into the basement.
Foreman Jonathan Neira and the Quality 1st crew arrived right on schedule and quickly had a new window and the BrightWall paneling installed. The SaniDry Dehumidifier was set up to keep the air in the basement clean and dry.
The homeowner is very happy with the bright, clean look of her basement, and the musty smell is now gone. She tells all her friends and family to call Quality 1st Basement Systems!
A Princeton homeowner reached out to Quality 1st Basement Systems in regards to flooding in his basement. The flooding occurred during heavy rains. The homeowner noticed that the frequent flooding had caused damage to his wood flooring and the sheet rock on his walls.
Quality 1st Basement Systems diagnosed the problem as ground water seepage. When it would rain, the ground surrounding the home would become so dense with water that the water would enter the basement through the walls and floors. To waterproof the basement, Quality 1st Basement Systems installed WaterGuard around the perimeter of the basement to ensure that the water could no longer enter the basement. WaterGuard was attached to a SuperSump Sump Pump to pump the water away from the basement.
To return this basement back into a fully-functional and finished room, Quality 1st Basement Systems installed 1/2 EverLast Wall Panels. EverLast panels are made from inorganic materials (will never grow mold), washable, and completely waterproof. MillCreek flooring was installed to finish the floor of the basement. MillCreek is completely waterproof and looks just like wood! If this homeowner has any water vapor or plumbing leaks, the walls and floors will be protected!
