Columbus's Basement, Crawl Space & Foundation Contractor

For over 25 years, Quality 1st Basement Systems has been the trusted basement & foundation company of Columbus. Our high quality work and exclusive access to over 28 patented products set us apart in the home improvement industry. When working on basements, crawl spaces and foundations we are the safe choice for your home.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

Basements and crawl spaces consistently have issues with water, mold and rot. To prevent these problems from occurring in the future we install a patented interior drainage system. Water and moisture that enters the basement is captured, controlled and safely removed via the basement drain before you ever notice it. The drainage system also works as part of crawl space encapsulation. 

We Provide:
  • Basement Waterproofing
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement
  • Clean Protected Crawlspace
  • Protection against Mold
  • Improved Home Value

We also fix basement leaks with permanent basement leak repair. With our system in place there is no need to fear basement flooding. We want your basement to be safe for years so our work comes with a transferable lifetime dry-basement warranty. 

Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

Whatever the issue we are the trusted foundation repair contractor. Our foundation repair experts will visit your home, identify the issue and recommend the right solution. We provide permanent foundation repairs using non-invasive methods. There is no need to tear up your entire yard to fix the foundation.

Job Stories From Columbus, NJ
Musty Crawl Space in Columbus, NJ

James recently purchased a home in Columbus, NJ but a few months after moving in he noticed a smell coming from his crawl space. When entering, he immediately noticed dampness and small wet puddles near certain corners. The dirt floor was now mud and his insulation was falling out of the ceiling. 

James contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate on how to protect the space and keep it dry. We sent Crawl Space Specialist, Mike F. out to perform a full inspection and provide James with a recommendation on permanent solution.

When Mike entered the crawl space he was hit with that same musty smell indicating that the space was allowing moisture, water and humidity inside. He noticed signs of mold and efflorescence on the wall. Now it was time for Mike to figure out where it was coming from. 

Mike noticed the vents were open giving that humid air easy access to the crawl space. Water was coming up through the ground creating that dampness and the busy smell formed because of it. 

He recommended James fully encapsulate his crawl space to seal it off from the harmful outside environment preventing this crawl space from being healthy. He suggested covering the vents, putting a VaporBarrier System on the walls and floors and installing a dehumidifier to prevent a musty odor. 


Damp Crawl Space in Columbus, NJ

Your crawl space is probably the only space in your home that you don't go in often or don't use at all. Yet, its one of, if not the most important place in your home. Why? Simply because over 80% of the air you breathe on the first level of your home comes from the space below, your crawl space! So  if your crawl space is damp and musty, its creating an odor, mold and poor air quality which you and your family are now breathing in while watching tv and eating dinner. Yuck! 

Quality 1st Basement Systems has been fixing nasty crawl spaces for over 20 years and so when Joanne and Michael from Columbus, NJ realized their crawl space needed to be checked out by a professional, they knew just who to call. We sent System Design Specialist, Javier, out to provide a full inspection and recommend a permanent solution to protect their home and provide them with peace of mind. 

Upon inspection, Javier noticed small puddles of water in multiple spots. There were white marks on the wall, known as efflorescence and signs of mold. The vents were allowing humid air come through along with moisture. Javier could also smell a strong odor that filled the entire area. Overall the space needed help and Javier knew exactly what to recommend.

Javier explained to Joanne and Mike that the best solution to their water problems in their crawl space was to completely seal the space off from the outside environment. The crawl space vents needed to be completely sealed with vent covers that would properly seal and prevent water from coming through. Next he recommended our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to prevent water seepage and promote a cleaner space. Lastly, our crawl space sump pump known as SmartSump, to capture and direct water out of the crawl space and away from the home. 

Joanne and Mike were amazed at the experience they had with Javier. His honesty and knowledge is what helped them in their decision to hire Quality 1st to protect their crawl space.

Good afternoon: I am in the process of purchasing the above property. Upon the home inspection it was discovered that new (exterior) crawl space access needs to be installed. I envision something like similar to an egress window type. Please let me know if this type of project request is within your scope and what availability you may have to set-up time for an estimate. Thank you!
