    Crawl Space Sealed in Jobstown, NJ

    A homeowner in Jobstown, New Jersey noticed their crawl space had water and moisture seeping in through their crawl space. This happens because the soil around the foundation becomes saturated during periods of heavy rainfall. This saturated soil creates hydrostatic pressure which pushes water through the foundation walls. The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Joe Mancini provided an inspection and suggested they install a vapor barrier system. Our foreman, Juan Garcia, installed the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System which seals the crawl space from the earth's elements. CleanSpace gives the crawl space the appearance of a bright space while protecting it from moisture and water, and being an effective space for storage.
