This Cranford, NJ homeowner wanted to keep their crawl space dry. System Design Specialist, Laszlo Lenkey, suggested WaterGuard and a SmartSump Pump System to prevent water intrusion. WaterGuard is a drainage system that collects the water seeping through the foundation walls and directs it over to the sump pump system. Since the crawl space is not an area in the home people often visit, the SmartSump Pump has a built-in alarm system to alert the homeowner of any water leaks. 

Quality 1st Basement Systems was able to provide a solution for this homeowners concerns in their crawl space. The homeowner was so pleased with the work done that they recommended Quality 1st to both of the neighbors for their crawl space concerns as well.

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.

Repairs for:
  • Wall Cracks
  • Bowing Walls
  • Uneven Floors
  • Settling Foundations
  • Uneven Concrete Slabs       
We Use: 
  • Wall Anchors

PolyLEVEL is an expansive polyurethane foam that fills in the gaps beneath the sunken concrete and lifts it back up to a level position. It also does not erode or wash away. If you are looking for the right foundation repair company, you found it. Let's get started.

Job Stories From Cranford, NJ
Makeover for a Poorly Insulated Crawl Space in Cranford, NJ

Cold weather…freezing pipes…bigger problems are waiting to happen in a poorly insulated crawl space. A proactive homeowner in Cranford, NJ, Eric, knew he needed to take the necessary steps to get his crawl space properly prepared for winter months. 

After contacting Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule a free estimate inspection, a crawl space specialist completed a thorough inspection of the crawl space, answered Eric’s questions, and then proposed the best solution to meet Eric’s needs.  TerraBlock padded insulation installed on the concrete crawl space floor would offer a combination of energy savings and moisture protection.  In addition, SilverGlo Insulation Panels installed on the walls would result in additional water vapor protection while boosting energy efficiency as the panels reflect heat back into the crawl space.  The inclusion of a durable CleanSpace Crawl Space Vapor Barrier (with a 25-year warranty against rips and tears) would be a quick-install to further provide yet another barrier to moisture which can cause mold and musty smells.  As the current crawl space door was uninsulated and not a tight fit, installing a sturdy new, airtight EverLast Door made from inorganic plastics and foams would further help in sealing the space under the home.  Crawl space vents allow moist humid air in, so to prevent that from happening, CleanSpace Vent Covers would stop outside air from entering.

Foreman Juan Garcia and his crew completed this project in the Cranford home, leaving the homeowner with a drier and properly insulated crawl space.  In addition to no longer worrying about pipes in the crawl space freezing, Eric would also experience a warmer main level of his home with energy-cost savings.  Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to have helped Eric achieve a greater peace of mind.

We have a finished basement. Over the past few months we have noticed some of the exposed concrete walls have shown signs of water droplets seeping thru the CMU wall. In addition there has been some signs of water penetration in some of our closets. Seeking a solution that will eliminate the water cost effectively absent destroying the finished basement.

I have an unfinished basement with 2 sump pumps and a drain, however I have found areas of mold on the outside walls and floor. I have tried to clean this up before but not sure of the cause or if it is safe to clean up.
