Dan, a homeowner in Manchester Township, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basements when he noticed his crawl space was damp. He had high humidity since his crawl space vents were open allowing moisture and humidity to travel inside and effect the space underneath his home.
System Design Specialist, Mike F. recommended our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System to seal the crawl space off from water, moisture and mold.
Foreman, Victor and his team also installed 3 vent covers to prevent unwanted humidity and cold drafts from entering along with a new window to prevent water seepage.
Peace of mind is exactly why this homeowner contacted us for a solution to their sagging floors. Right away they knew their crawl space needed to be checked by a professional when noticing their floor on the first level of their home began to settle.
Mike Fiorillo, our crawl space specialist, inspected the crawl space beams and floor joist. He suggested our SmartJack System to supply additional support to the crawl space beams that were causing the floors to sag.
Our Crew installed 20 SmartJacks to support the floor joists and over all protect the crawl space structure. The homeowners now had peace of mind that their floors weren't going to settle further.
Our System Design Specialist Mike F inspected and provided the homeowner with a proposal. Senior Foreman, Jonathan N. and his team installed our CarbonArmor Foundation Stabilization System in this Matawan, NJ home. The CarbonArmor System includes flexible carbon fiber fabric straps that are up to 10 times stronger in tension than steel. Using high strength epoxy resin, the carbon fiber straps are bonded to the interior face of the wall. The straps will stabilize the wall. This system requires no exterior excavation, installs quickly, and won't impact future basement finishing.
This homeowner never had serious issues with water, but with the recent heavy rains, their basement had been consistently flooding. The sump pump that they had was no longer keeping the basement dry, and the homeowner knew it was time for an upgrade. They did not have a drainage system of any sort- which is why the water was not making it to their pump.
System Design Specialist, Mike F. explained that in order for the water to get to the pump, they would need a full perimeter WaterGuard System installed as well. WaterGuard collects any water seeping in through the basement walls or floor and directs it towards the sump pump. Mike also suggested the homeowner have the TripleSafe Sump Pump installed.
The TripleSafe Sump Pump offers three times the protection to ensure that the homeowner will never have to worry about water in their basement again. It is equipped with 3 pumps and a backup battery that will keep it running even if the power goes out.
After their existing sump pump failed, causing their basement to flood, this homeowner contacted Quality 1st for a solution. System Design Specialist, Mike F. provided the homeowner with a written proposal for the solution he designed specifically for this basements needs taking into consideration its size. Our team led by Wilver, installed a full perimeter waterproofing system with WaterGuard and our SuperSump Sump Pump.
