A homeowner in Jersey City, New Jersey was experiencing water coming in through their basement walls and leaking all over the floor. The homeowners contacted basement waterproofing experts, Quality 1st for a solution.

Our System Design Specialist inspected the basement and recommended the basement be waterproofed. WaterGuard was installed along the perimeter of the basement, underneath the floor slab in order to hide an unsightly drain. This system is installed under the floor slab, on top of the foundation footing to make sure the system does not get clogged. The WaterGuard collects water that seeps through basement walls and drains it to the sump pump.

CleanSpace vapor barrier system was installed to hold back water vapor from passing through the foundation walls, directing it to the sump pump. CleanSpace also gives the basement an upgraded brighter, cleaner appearance. A dehumidifier was also installed to filter out any damp, musty odors by drying and filtering the air. A sump pump was installed to pump out any water that enters the basement.

The TripleSafe has three levels of pumps built in to provide the most protection. The TripleSafe has a backup battery that is capable of pumping 11,500 gallons of water or more on a fully charged battery. This basement is fully protected and waterproofed for the homeowners to enjoy.         

If your basement experiences water issues, we at Quality 1st have the solutions for you. Give us a call and schedule your FREE estimate today!

A homeowner in Jersey City, New Jersey was experiencing high humidity and moisture in the crawl space and contacted Quality 1st for a solution.

Our System Design Specialist inspected the crawl space and recommended the crawl space be encapsulated. Drainage matting was installed on the floor of the crawl space to give the water a channel underneath the crawl space liner. The matting has raised dimples to make sure the water does not get trapped and directs the water to the perimeter drain.

SilverGlo was installed on the crawl space walls to serve as a radiant barrier and reflects heat back into the crawl space for ultimate energy savings. CleanSpace was installed on the crawl space walls and floors to seal off the crawl space. This will prevent any water vapor or humidity from passing through keeping the crawl space dry and healthy.
