Basement Waterproofing Case Studies: Safely Waterproofed Basement in Englewood Cliffs, NJ

Wednesday, January 13th, 2016 by Sarah Gozick


A homeowner and his son in Englewoods Cliffs, NJ used the basement for storage. They put holiday decorations, furniture, and sporting equipment in the basement for safe keeping. However, the basement walls were frequently damp and they were starting to worry. Much of the furniture was made of wood and they didn't want it to start rotting or get wet. They called Quality 1st Basement Systems for a solution to keep the basement dry and healthy. 


Specialist Jessica Long inspected the property and met with the homeowner and his family. Years of training and experience told Jessica that this basement needed a new sump pump to keep up with the amount of incoming moisture. Quality 1st Basement Systems removed the old sump pump and installed a TripleSafe sump pump. Why the TripleSafe? The TripleSafe is a safety focused solution for wet basements. It has three pumps and a battery back up, making it a powerful option for any basement. The homeowner considers it an investment in his home's future. 

On the damp basement walls, Quality 1st Basement Systems installed CleanSpace vapor barrier. CleanSpace vapor barrier keeps moisture out of the basement and lowers the relative humidity. All of the stored furniture and belongings will not get damp and will stay clean and as good as new. CleanSpace is durable, the plastic vapor barrier will not tear or puncture. This basement is now dry and the family feels safe using it for storage! They rely on the products installed and are thankful to have had the work finished.
