Quality 1st Basements
Quality 1st Basement Systems donated concrete leveling services to the Keyport Fire Department. The firehouse driveway had many sunken concrete slabs which made it difficult to drive the fire trucks in and out of the firehouse. Quality 1st Basement Systems came to the rescue!
Cliffwood, NJ - October 14, 2014
Quality 1st Basement Systems recently donated concrete leveling services to Keyport Fire Department. Sinking concrete slabs is very typical at firehouses due to the heavy weight of the fire trucks. The Mayor of Keyport coordinated with Dori Novick, PolyLEVEL Sales Executive of Quality 1st Basement Systems, to help the Keyport Fire Department. With the completion of work by Quality 1st Basement Systems, the Keyport Fire Department’s normal operations have improved tremendously.
The driveway of the firehouse had many uneven concrete slabs. The concrete had settled up to 5” at the entrance of the driveway, making it almost impossible to drive fire trucks into the firehouse. As a temporary fix, the firehouse installed an asphalt ramp to get the trucks into the firehouse. Unfortunately, the settlement that caused the sinking concrete continued to cause issues for the fire department even after the asphalt was installed. Quality 1st Basement Systems repaired the driveway using the PolyLEVEL concrete leveling system.
PolyLEVEL is a state of the art approach to repairing sinking concrete. The PolyLEVEL method uses high-density polymers to raise slabs back to the desired level. The PolyLEVEL system is completed by drilling very small holes into the slabs and injecting the structural grade polymers into the voids. When the void is filled, the expansion of the polyurethane lifts and stabilizes the slab.
Quality 1st Basement Systems removed the asphalt from the front of the driveway. Using the PolyLEVEL concrete leveling system, the concrete slab was raised back to its original level making it suitable for the trucks to enter the firehouse. Quality 1st Basement Systems also leveled the remaining concrete slabs removing all trip hazards and restoring the large driveway. PolyLEVEL removed any further issues of settlement, is strong enough for fire trucks to drive over, and removed all trip hazards at the Keyport Firehouse. Many members of the fire department visited the site and could not believe how quickly and beautifully the PolyLEVEL installation was done. Quality 1st Basement Systems received so many compliments from the members of Keyport Fire Department.
Quality 1st Basement Systems would like to thank the men and women of Keyport Fire Department for all that they do for our community. Thank you for allowing our company to be part of such a great improvement to Keyport!
