A homeowner in Clayton, New Jersey contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after noticing their crawl space was attracting moisture. This occurs because the poorly compacted soil around the foundation becomes saturated during heavy rainfall, creating hydrostatic pressure which pushes water and moisture through the walls. System Design Specialist, Joe Mancini, provided an inspection of the crawl space and suggested an encapsulation. Our foreman, Wilver Cardoza, installed the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System that is thick and durable like a pool liner and seals the crawl space from the earth's elements. Now, the crawl space is protected from water and moisture while having a usable storage space.
A homeowner in Merchantville, New Jersey had water in their crawl space and contacted Quality 1st for a solution. Our System Design Specialist inspected the crawl space and recommended that the crawl space be sealed off so no more water, moisture or humidity would enter the crawl space.

This customer had his sump pump replaced with a TripleSafe Sump Pump system which consists of two cast-iron pumps in one liner as well as a third battery run pump for emergencies. The TripleSafe was designed with an airtight, waterproof lid and comes with a WaterWatch Alarm to alert the homeowner to a non-functioning pump.
System Design Specialist Mike Fiorillo visited this customer regarding a new waterproofing system. The dark orange sludge-like residue indicated that a regular WaterGuard System wouldn't do the trick; this customer needed WaterGuard IOS which is specially designed to handle the heavy iron ochre.
