Kearny customer called Quality 1st because his basement walls felt wet.  Basement walls often allow water vapor to pass through them making them look damp, stained, and ugly.  The water vapor also increases water and humidity issues in the basement. Quality 1st installed ZenWall Paneling in this home, which not only looks great, but stops water vapor from coming through the walls into the basement air. This Kearny resident is very happy with his dry, beautiful ZenWalls and has regained full use of his basement space!

Rain water soaked this finished basement. Quality 1st Basement Systems inspected the basement and determined that a full perimeter basement waterproofing system, new sump pump, and EverLast wall panels would restore this basement back to a healthy, dry, and clean area for the family. EverLast Wall Panels are perfect for this basement bathroom because they are completely waterproof which means that if the toilet or other plumbing fixtures leak, the wall will never be damaged!

Kearny's Basement, Crawl Space & Foundation Contractor

For over 25 years, Quality 1st Basements has been the trusted basement & foundation company of Kearny. Our high quality work and exclusive access to over 28 patented products set us apart in the home improvement industry. When working on basements, crawl spaces and foundations we are the safe choice for your home.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

Basements and crawl spaces consistently have issues with water, mold and rot. To prevent these problems from occurring in the future we install a patented interior drainage system. Water and moisture that enters the basement is captured, controlled and safely removed via the basement drain before you ever notice it. The drainage system also works as part of crawl space encapsulation. 

We Provide:
  • Basement Waterproofing
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement
  • Clean Protected Crawlspace
  • Protection against Mold
  • Improved Home Value

We also fix basement leaks with permanent basement leak repair. With our system in place there is no need to fear basement flooding. We want your basement to be safe for years so our work comes with a transferable lifetime dry-basement warranty. 

Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

Whatever the issue we are the trusted foundation repair contractor. Our foundation repair experts will visit your home, identify the issue and recommend the right solution. We provide permanent foundation repairs using non-invasive methods. There is no need to tear up your entire yard to fix the foundation.

Repairs for:
  • Wall Cracks
  • Bowing Walls
  • Uneven Floors
  • Settling Foundations
  • Uneven Concrete Slabs       
We Use: 
  • Wall Anchors
  • I-Beam Wall Braces
  • Foundation & Slab Piers
  • Crawl Space Jack Posts
  • PolyLEVEL 

Along with general foundation problems we also fix sunken concrete slabs using PolyLEVEL. PolyLEVEL is an expansive polyurethane foam that fills in the gaps beneath the sunken concrete and lifts it back up to a level position. It also does not erode or wash away. If you are looking for the right foundation repair company, you found it. Let's get started.

Job Stories From Kearny, NJ
New Homeowners' Dismay Turned to Relief in Kearny, NJ

A new home…oh, the excitement!  However, new homeowners in Kearny, NJ found that worry can come with excitement.  In looking around their new investment, they noticed water stains on the walls in the basement.  They knew that water stains were an indication of a problem that wouldn’t resolve itself, so they called Quality 1st Basement Systems for help.  Waterproofing specialist Kenny Tramutola visited the couple to ensure them that Quality 1st Basement Systems could alleviate some of their worries.

Kenny proposed installation of a waterproofing system which included a full perimeter WaterGuard, a TripleSump sump pump, a TrenchLock, an IceGuard, CleanSpace Walling, and a half-wall EverLast Wall System.  The CleanSpace Walling helps drain water vapor and leaks into the WaterGuard.  To transition across a stairway and to catch any water leakage that may come from outside, a trench drain (connected to the WaterGuard) is put in place.  Water in the WaterGuard is directed to the TripleSump, which includes an efficient primary pump, a back-up pump (in case the first one fails or if there is a need for extra pumping power), and a third battery-operated pump (designed to kick in if the power goes out).  The TripleSafe pumps water out of the basement and is also prevented from causing a flood in winter months (if the discharge line freezes) by inclusion of an IceGuard. 

Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to install this efficient system that would prevent seepage from ruining the basement space by directing it out of the home.  Now the couple could relax and enjoy their new home, including the waterproofed basement!
