For over 25 years, Quality 1st Basements has been the trusted basement & foundation company of Hawthorne. 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

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 Hawthorne, NJ
Foundation Settlement in Hawthorne, NJ

A home in Hawthorne, New Jersey had signs of foundation settlement and contacted Quality 1st for a solution. Our System Design Specialist inspected the foundation and recommended that Helical Piers be installed in the soil to provide anchoring strength as the weight of the foundation is transferred to the pier. Helical Piers are ideal for stabilizing and restoring foundations and are fast and effective.      

Uneven Sidewalk in Hawthorne, NJ

A homeowner in Hawthorne, New Jersey had an uneven sidewalk that needed to be lifted back to its original position. Quality 1st was contacted to help level this sidewalk back to its original position. Our experts used PolyLevel, a polyurethane foam was injected into the concrete and started expanding and working within minutes. PolyLevel is a fast and permanent solution to lifting and leveling concrete. 

Damp Crawl Space in Hawthorne, NJ

A crawl space in Hawthorne, New Jersey was damp, cold and a place that the homeowners avoided.

Quality 1st System Design Specialist inspected the crawl space and recommended a full encapsulation system to eliminate the dampness and coldness. This will turn the crawl space into an area that is usable and the homeowners can use for storage. 

Wet Basement in Hawthorne, NJ

A homeowner in Hawthorne, New Jersey had water in their basement and contacted Quality 1st for a solution.

Our System Design Specialist inspected the basement and noticed the signs of water the homeowner had reported. WaterGuard was installed under the floor slab, on top of the foundation footing to keep the system out of the mud zone. This ensures that the system will not get clogged and there will not be an unsightly drain around the basement. A sump pump was also installed to ensure that any more water would be pumped out of the basement to keep it dry.  

WaterGuard Sub-Floor Drainage System Redirects Water Seepage in Hawthorne Basement

George F., homeowner in Hawthorne, knew he needed professional help with problems with water in his basement.  He contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems, waterproofing experts, to schedule a free inspection and estimate as advertised.    

George decided to have Quality 1st Basement Systems take care of his problem with the installation of two SuperSumps, located in opposite corners of the basement, to remove water build up.  The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is designed to provide excellent defense against water intrusion.  Each includes a powerful and efficient cast iron pump capable of removing 2,220 gallons of water per hour.  George decided that his basement would be well-protected with these pumps.

As time went on, however, George realized that he would benefit from the installation of a WaterGuard sub-floor drainage system.  This perimeter drainage system allows water seepage from the walls to be directed toward the sump pump to be removed from the basement altogether.  It is installed with minimal disruption, only opening up a small area of the slab along the walls.  The concrete is thereafter restored to provide a clean appearance while keeping water from pooling on the basement floor.

Once Quality 1st Basement Systems completed the second phase of the installation, George could really take a sigh of relief, now assured more than ever that water seepage would be directed outside of the home with the help of the WaterGuard drainage System and the SuperSumps, keeping George’s basement area drier.

Basement has been getting water

I am calling to see about setting up an in-home estimate. With the recent rains, I've noticed that the wood paneling in my basement has become warped and spongy in one area. There is no apparent water on the floor, but moisture is making its way in somehow. Please contact me at your earliest convenience. Thank you.
