    Customer Testimonial

              I have used them to lift a few slabs on my driveway. Had one minor issue in the first year and they came out no questions asked and made it right. I would recommend them to anyone and would absolutely call them again. I thought I would need $20000 of work based on estimates I got to replace my otherwise good concrete slabs. They came out and for way way way less $ solved my issue. I can’t recommend them enough!

    Customer Testimonial

              Don't hesitate to use this company!I have used Quality 1st Basements for probably ten to fifteen years. I called them out initially, and they installed a sump pump after the prior one had failed. Then, they came out to do yearly services on it. What I really like about this is they call me, and I don't have to remember to call them for the yearly maintenance. During one of their service calls, I asked about tying in my roof drains. I had one at the front of my house that would flood out my flower beds and wash all the mulch into the sidewalk when it rained. I wanted to tie that into a PVC pipe that could be tied into the sump pump. I had two down spouts, and they tied those into the sump pump drainage. My sump pump has a good life span, by the way, and I only recently had to replace the battery for it. They have done other work for me, too. I was tired of having a dirt floor, and I wanted a basement wrap system. This is basically a water proofing system, and it's like a plastic membrane with channels in it so the water can find its way to the sump pump. They offered a payment plan for that, and I really liked that. I had one year to pay it off with no interest. On another yearly service call, his gadget told us the humidity level was really high. I knew the crawl space was pretty damp, but I can be skeptical, and I was. He did such a good job explaining what the gadget was showing and was so patient answering my questions until I had a good understanding of what was going on. I thought about it, and I decided it was probably best to have them install a dehumidifier. Everything they have done for me has turned out great. i haven't had any problems with anything, and I have really enjoyed working with them on the various projects. They come highly recommended from me!

Title: PolyLevel Foreman

Richard Kruk from Quality 1st Basements

Meet Rich, our PolyLevel Foreman! He knew right away he was at home when he met our PolyLevel Team. Rich was excited to learn about our State-Of-The-Art, concrete lifting and level system, PolyLevel because it was changing the game for sinking concrete. Richard and his team will do a full walk through with you before they begin the installation. He and his team will make sure the surrounding area is cleaned and all items are moved prior to preparing the concrete slabs for raising.

“What I like most about my job is the technology I get to use to raise concrete slabs. Working with PolyLevel and the tools we use are really cool. The installation is quick and clean and the reaction from the homeowner when they see us in action is great as well.”

    After

    A trip hazard in your driveway can cause a serious accident for family and friends coming and going from your home. When this homeowner noticed how much their driveway had settled, they contacted Quality 1st Basements right away for a solution. System Design Specialist, Tom C. inspected the driveway area and recommended our PolyLevel would be the best solution virus replacement. 

    The number one cause of concrete settlement is the soil beneath the slab. If the soil becomes too wet or too dry it weakens and can no longer support the weight of the slab therefore causing the slab to sink. Replacing it would only be a temporary solution and so therefore the homeowner agreed PolyLevel would be the best option. 

    PolyLevel Foreman, Rich and his team drilled small penny-size holes into the concrete and injected our PolyLevel foam underneath. The foam expands, raising the slab back to level and then hardens to permanently stabilize the slab. Within just 15 minutes of completion the homeowners car could be driven over the slab and into the driveway.
