    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.

    Customer Testimonial

              Victor Leon and his installation crew did a great job installing eight Smart Vents and two floor jacks. My 90-year-old home has a cement block foundation that was quite hard and resistant to removal, but Victor was determined and patient. Through this he was eventually able to break down the foundation, and install the vents. Now my dining room is noticeably improved with this added stability. I would highly recommend Quality 1st Basement Systems to anyone in need of foundation repair projects on their home!

    Crawl Space Insulation and Encapsulation in Lakehurst, NJ

    A homeowner in Lakehurst, New Jersey called Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate on crawl space encapsulation and insulation. Their crawl space was humid and the fiberglass insulation was messy and wet. 

    Quality 1st Basement Systems installed CleanSpace crawl space vapor barrier. CleanSpace stops moisture from entering the crawl space. Humid crawl spaces can grow mold and mildew, and the wet air can seep to the rest of the house. To replace the wet fiberglass, SilverGlo insulation was installed. SilverGlo insulates better than fiberglass, and is much cleaner. Fiberglass can grow mold, is not waterproof, and does not insulate cold at the source. Now this crawl space has a lower humidity, stays dry, and will save the homeowner money on heating. Proper crawl space insulation and vapor barrier pays for itself in savings!

    A homeowner in Barnegat, New Jersey was experiencing humid and nasty in their crawl space and contacted Quality 1st Basements for a solution. Our System Design Specialist inspected the crawl space and suggested it be encapsulated in order to eliminate the moisture and humidity.

    First, Drainage Matting was installed on the crawl space floor to make sure water is not trapped underneath the matting. The matting has raised dimples in order to give the water a channel underneath the crawl space. To seal the crawl space, CleanSpace vapor barrier system was installed to prevent water vapor and humidity from passing through. This durable, bright white liner keeps the crawl space dry and protects the structure and insulation from mold and rot. A sump pump was also installed to make sure the crawl space stays dry and any water entering gets pumped out.

    The SmartSump sump pump is ideal for crawl spaces because without one, the crawl space can still be vulnerable to groundwater and leaks. This sump pump also comes with an alarm to alert the homeowners of any water in the crawl space.    

    The health of your crawl space effects the overall health of your home, don't wait to address the issues, not when Quality 1st Basements has the solutions!
