This homeowner in Mount Laurel, New Jersey noticed their basement wall was bowing inwards. This occurs because poorly compacted and saturated soil around the foundation creates hydrostatic pressure against the walls. The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Javier Romero, provided an inspection and suggested they use a wall reinforcement system. Our foreman, Esau Aquino, installed the CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcement System which is made from a fiber-reinforced polymer that is 10 times stronger than steel. The straps are attached to the wall and secured with heavy-duty steel brackets. The straps will stabilize the wall and begin to pull it back to its original position.
Burlington, NJ homeowner reached out to us because they noticed the floor above their crawlspace had a horizontal cracks and was continuously expanding at a 45 degree angle. We sent Senior Foundation Specialist, Jeff Nero out to inspect the crawl space to see what structural foundation issues were causing the floor to crack and settle.
Jeff noticed the crawl space beams were sagging causing the floor to shift and cracks to form. He suggested SmartJack Stabilizers be installed underneath the beams to provide additional support. These SmartJack Stabilizers can be adjusted to gradually lift the crawl space beams back towards their original state. This system will also prevent future settlement and structural damage.

A homeowner in Skillman, New Jersey noticed water coming in through their crawl space walls. This can happen because of the poorly compacted soil around the foundation that gets saturated during heavy rainfall.
