This finished basement in Chatham, NJ was experiencing flooding after heavy rains. Water seeped under the carpet and made the basement damp and vulnerable. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed Everlast wall restoration and ThermalDry waterproof basement flooring. Everlast walling is made out of high grade vinyl-faced cement board and PVC molding, so it is resistant to moisture, wood rot, and mold. ThermalDry basement flooring is made out of inorganic material and will keep the basement dry with its built in drainage plane. Now this basement looks amazing and will stay mold free.

Job Stories From Chatham, NJ
Concrete Sinking and Settling in Chatham, NJ

A homeowner living in Chatham, NJ was experiencing sinking concrete. The back patio area had settled roughly 3 inches and the front walkway had slabs with almost 4 inches of settlement creating a dangerous trip hazard. Upon arrival, Andy noticed the trip hazards immediately when getting out of his vehicle. Not only did they create a dangerous entrance to the front of the house but also an eye sour to the property. Andy met with the homeowner and ventured to the backyard where he could visibly see the unevenness of the patio area. 

Andy recommended our PolyLevel Solution for the concrete issues around this Chatham, NJ home. In just a short time our PolyLevel team was out to raise the slabs back towards their original level. First our team did a full walk through to make sure the surrounding areas were cleared and out of the way. They spoke with the homeowner and made sure they fully understood the installation process and reassured them that half way through they would check in and update them on progress. Lastly they made sure the homeowner knew that they were welcomed at any time to watch or ask questions. 

Once the entire area was cleared, the crew began drilling small penny-size holes into each settling slab. Using special equipment,the PolyLevel is injected beneath the slab filing all voids underneath between the concrete and soil. The polyurethane foam expands and begins to lift the slab. Once the correct amount is injected and the slab is back towards its desired level, it begins to harden for permanent stabilization. 


Winterizing a Crawl Space in Chatham, NJ

This homeowner in Chatham, NJ had a cold and damp crawl space. She had all the warning signs to a poorly insulated  space underneath her home. The floors on the first level were always cold, drafts were coming up through the floor and her heating bills grew trying to heat her home. Her pipes had froze twice already and winter had just begun. 

We sent System Design Specialist Phil, out to inspect the crawl space and design a solution to her crawl spaces needs.Phil Recommended our heat barrier known as SilverGlo for the walls and the rim joists. Next a CleanSpace Vapor Barrier would be installed over the SilverGlo as a moisture barrier to protect the space against dampness such as water leaks. Each crawl space vent would be replaced with our air tight and sealed crawl space vent to create easy access to the crawl space without the drafts. Sealing the crawl space off from the cold outside environment will allow the SilverGlo to reflect the existing heat back into the space to create a warmer floor and a more comfortable home.

Chatham Basement Waterproofing

When Rod in Chatham found puddles in his basement, he reached out to a friend for help. Although his basement was unfinished, his washer and dryer were down there and he used the space for storage. His friend immediately recommended Quality 1st Basement Systems. The friend told Rod Quality 1st did an excellent job waterproofing his basement and was the only company he’d recommend. Rod called that day.

 Waterproofing specialist, Don A, went out to inspect the basement and assured Rod that his basement problem could be fixed.


Wilver and the Quality 1st crew arrived on time and installed a CleanSpace Wall to control the water seepage from the cinderblock walls. WaterGuard was installed around the perimeter of the basement with a Trench Drain to protect water from leaking in by the door. A SuperSump sump pump and UltraPump were installed along with IceGuard to insure the basement would be dry no matter how low the temperature dropped.

Rod was very happy with the work Quality 1st did and now he recommends them to all his friends.

We just moved into this house 2 months ago, we are having water problems around a french drain in our electrical closet. It appears the clay is clogging the drain and bringing water into the closet floor and saturating the carpet if we don't wet vac the area fast enough. We are also observing mold/mildew in the unfinished portion of the basement on the walls. Need to evaluate where water is coming in from and how to fix.

Vicinity of Crestwood Dr. in Chatham
I recently had an addition put on my house with a basement. It appears the contractor either used a waterproof product that is failing or did not apply the product correctly when the foundation was installed. I am looing for a contractor to dig around the perimeter of the foundation, clean the cncrete block and apply a waterproofing product/system, ensuring the rainage pipe and stone are in place and then backfill.
