The sidewalks in front of this Fair Lawn residence were uneven due to settlement under the concrete. Quality 1st Basement Systems isntalled the PolyLEVEL concrete leveling system to repair the sunken concrete. PolyLEVEL is a two part poly-urethane foam which is injected underneath the concrete to raise it back to its original level. PolyLEVEL is very lightweight which means it will not cause further settlement. PolyLEVEL is the cheaper, faster, more modern alternative to mudjacking. The sidewalk slabs have been repaired, and there are no longer any tripping hazards for this family!

This Fair Lawn, NJ home had a leaking basement. The water was coming in through the walls as well as the floor joints. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed BrightWall on the basement to stop the water from seeping in through the concrete. A TripleSafe battery backup sump pump was installed to pump the water from the WaterGuard basement drain system out of the basement.

Job Stories From Fair Lawn, NJ
BrightWall Creates a Bright, Water Free Space

On the unfinished side of her basement in Fair Lawn, NJ, water was coming into Jean C.’s home.  She knew it was time for some expert help, and was referred to contact Quality 1st Basement Systems by Peter M.  After speaking on the phone and scheduling a free estimate, waterproofing expert John Ruggiano met with Jean to find the cause of the water and come up with a permanent solution. 

Most of the water was leaking in where the wall and floor met, so John recommended the installation of our BrightWall system, the WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system, a SuperSump, and an UltraSump battery backup.  BrightWall is a specifically designed basement wall panel system that not only looks great and will brighten up your basement, but also effectively drains water AND stops water vapor. 

Jean C.’s basement water problems were fixed in one quick day by the professional installers from Quality 1st.  Her basement is now semi-finished, dry, and a healthy space that could be turned into something more!  Don’t let a leaky basement put a damper on your home, contact us today for more information about any of our basement waterproofing products.     

Install the SuperSump to Keep Your Basement Dry

Linda and Frank S. contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems looking to get an estimate for the installation of a sump pump.  Little did they know, their basement waterproofing system would be composed of much more to keep their Fair Lawn, NJ basement dry for years to come. 

Waterproofing specialist Damon Ludwig met with the couple and determined that a SuperSump sump pump system, UltraSump, and WaterGuard would be the perfect solution to their basement water problem.  The SuperSump basement sump pump system has a patented airtight cover that keeps odors to a minimum as well as bugs and pests from falling into the sump. In case of a power outage or pump failure, the SuperSump houses a secondary battery backup sump pump called the UltraSump. 

A dry basement is always a possibility with the help of your local basement waterproofing experts.  Linda and Frank S. no longer have a leaky basement, but can enjoy a clean, dry basement all year round!  

Waterproof and Finish Your Fair Lawn Basement Today

Getting your basement waterproofed is a step in the right direction if you are looking to finish or refinish your basement space.  Melanie and Daniel S. had already installed carpet in their basement when water starting coming in through the walls and windows.  Luckily it wasn’t too late!  Quality 1st Basement Systems had the perfect solutions to keep this basement dry so they could continue with the finishing job.

Expert waterproofing installer, Wilver Cardoza, and his team came in and installed a SuperSump, UltraSump, WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system, FlexiSpan, IceGuard, and LawnScape.  The SuperSump sump pump system is designed to effectively pump water out of your basement and keep it dry all year round.  Additionally, the UltraSump battery backup sump pump system fights to keep your basement dry even during the roughest conditions.  It maintains a dry basement when a power outage strikes, if a circuit breaker goes out, or even if the pump motor fails.

It’s important to waterproof your Fair Lawn basement before finishing it.  Now Melanie and Daniel can rest assured that they have a space to enjoy that will stay clean and dry all the time.  They can also continue to finish their basement too!

Many years ago, the previous owners of my house had a small addition put onto the back of the house.  They didn't have a proper foundation poured. They just put it on top of the existing patio slab.  Now the slab is sinking.  I'm interested in having this repaired.
