A Little Silver homeowner's concrete driveway was sinking, which created a driveway that was both unsightly and unsafe. The settlement occurred due to poorly compacted fill soil beneath the concrete that had shifted and created a void, which the concrete driveway then began to sink into. The homeowner knew that the cracks and gaps in his driveway could pose a tripping hazard for residents and guests, as well as a danger for vehicles.
Quality 1st Basement Systems offered the perfect solution to this sinking concrete driveway with PolyLEVEL treatment. PolyLEVEL uses high density polymers to raise the sunken concrete back to its original level, so that the cracks and gaps are filled. PolyLEVEL is a cost-effective and time-efficient solution, especially in comparison to other solutions such as mudjacking, which leaves gaping holes and takes weeks to cure. The Little Silver homeowner is now happy and safe with his newly fixed driveway!
Bill B. in Lumberton, NJ had a problem. The concrete between his pool and his home was sinking into the ground, causing large gaps. These gaps were a huge trip hazard for him and his family, lowered the property value of the home and were an eyesore. He wanted to lift the concrete back up into place, so he called Quality 1st Basement Systems and asked for a free estimate. Specialist Jeff Nero visited the home and explained that the PolyLevel system was the best solution.
Helping Bill with his sinking concrete was easy with PolyLevel. The installation team injected PolyLevel foam underneath the sinking slab. Bill was concerned about making a mess of his property, so he was pleased to see that PolyLevel was clean and tidy. It only took coin sized holes for installation, which were then covered up. PolyLevel lifted the concrete up, making it level and safe. Bill has been very happy with his level concrete and no longer has to worry about trip hazards and a lowered property value!
Faye D. in Mount Holly, NJ had a crack in her cinderblock foundation. Every time it rained, water came in through the crack and dripped down the basement wall. Faye and her husband wanted the crack patched, but they wanted a solution that would work instead of a temporary band-aid. They met with basement specialist Ken Peare and he answered all of their questions.
Quality 1st Basement Systems fixed the wall crack with FlexiSpan. FlexiSpan is a permanent solution that keeps water out of foundation cracks. It seals up the crack, preventing moisture from coming in. FlexiSpan is flexible, it moves with the wall unlike an injection or an expoy. Since it stays bonded with the wall, it moves with the natural movement of the foundation. Quality 1st Basement Systems guaranteed Faye and her husband that no water would get into the basement with the FlexiSpan system. This foundation wall is protected, permanently!
Anthony C. of Marlton, NJ was preparing his townhouse for sale. He wanted to install new insulation in the crawl space for greater energy efficiency. He searched the internet and found that Quality 1st Basement Systems offers no-obligation, free estimates, so he arranged an appointment to meet with John Schweitzer, crawl space specialist.
John proposed the installation of SilverGlo Insulation Panels (over the block walls) as well as SilverGlo Rim Joist Insulation (around the main floor framing system). These products have an R-11 value to keep heat in the crawl space and therefore also provide a warmer living area above.
Anthony C. decided that Quality 1st Basement System’s plan for insulating the crawl space was both energy efficient and affordable; Quality 1st was pleased to help Anthony repair his townhouse and make the real estate transaction smoother because of it!
Robert J. from Mount Laurel, NJ noticed that the cement steps leading up to his home were sinking. He also found that a few slabs along the walkway that were sinking were creating a tripping hazard.
Robert J. scheduled an appointment to have these areas on his property inspected. John Schweitzer, specialist from Quality 1st Basement Systems, visited Robert J. to inspect his property and explain the PolyLEVEL process. He described how structural grade polymers injected beneath the slabs through small holes would lift and stabilize them. The material, less porous than concrete, would not wash out or deteriorate. Additionally, PolyLEVEL cures within 15 minutes, limiting the disruption.
Robert J. knew that PolyLEVEL would be the best fix. Quality 1st Basement Systems is pleased to have helped this homeowner attain a safe walkway and steps once again.
This home in Hainesport, New Jersey had a horizontal crack running through its foundation. When the house was built there was a problem with the structural integrity of the basement that caused the walls to bow. The soil around the foundation was dry and sandy and could not keep up with the weight of the home.
Quality 1st Basement Systems installed wall anchors to secure the foundation and prevent the foundation walls from bowing forward. Wall anchors were installed with minimal disruption to the soil around the home's foundation. It permanently stabilizes the foundation, and straightens the walls over time. Foundation problems do not get better as time goes on. This homeowner made the right choice by calling Quality 1st Basement Systems for a home improvement solution.
This homeowner in Shamong, NJ had a critter problem. One of the vents to the crawl space decayed and left an opening for a large rodent to find a home in the crawl space. After the problem was resolved, the family thought about the quality of their crawl space. It was humid and now it was open for any insects or pests to move in.
Quality 1st Basement Systems closed up the crawl space with a vent cover. The crawl space vent cover protects the area from moisture, humidity, and any outdoor pests looking to come into the crawl space. Then, to lower the humidity the crew installed a SaniDry dehumidifier. The SaniDry is a self-draining dehumidification system that removes moisture from the air and also filters out health harming allergens such as dust mite droppings. Now this crawl space has lowered humidity and is protected from nasty pests.
Homeowner Kristofer from Burlington had a tenant in the livable basement space, but he also found that he had a water problem there. The tenant indicated that water was coming up through the floor, getting the carpeting wet.
Kristofer searched the internet and found that Quality 1st Basement Systems might be just the help he needed. Waterproofing specialist Maurice Robinson visited the homeowner, inspected the basement, and designed a solution.
Project Manager Melvin Cardoza headed a crew to install the WaterGuard System along the basement walls and a SuperSump sump pump to discharge any water that seeps into the WaterGuard. This combination was supplemented with the FlexiSpan crack repair system to provide an effective, permanent solution to block water intrusion through the vertical crack found on one wall. Additionally, the crew installed an IceGuard (designed to prevent flooding in the event of frozen discharge pipes) and a LawnScape outlet (to disperse discharge water away from the house and onto the lawn). Quality 1st Basement Systems helped to create a drier basement, providing relief for both the homeowner and the tenant, too!
Katrina’s home in Willingboro, NJ was showing multiple signs common to sinking foundations. She saw cracks inside and outside her home. There were cracks in the drywall around doors and windows and cracks on the ceilings. Doors were not opening and/or closing properly. There was an uneven floor and the roof was separating as well as the tub/shower pan. Signs like those were certainly something to be concerned about.
Katrina called Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule a free estimate appointment. Foundation specialist Jeff Nero inspected her home and all of the tell-tale signs of a failing concrete slab foundation. He determined that Katrina’s home could be stabilized and restored through the installation of Slab Piers. Slab Piers are designed to provide strength and stabilization through deep-soil anchoring. Once stable soil is reached and a bracket is set, the weight of the slab is transferred to the piers and the slab can be lifted back to its original position. Poly grout is then injected under the slab to fill the void.
Quality 1st Basement Systems was glad to repair Katrina’s failing foundation slab before the damage got worse. Katrina could then rest a little easier knowing that her foundation was secure.
Homeowner Robin K. from Riverside, NJ began noticing some musty odors in her partially-finished basement. There was a pattern; usually these odors were smelled during the summer months, and the humidity levels were also much higher then as well. Robin knew that mold growth was possible under these conditions, so she attempted to keep humidity levels low by running a dehumidifier. Over time, she found her basement situation to be so severe that it burned up three room dehumidifiers! None of those systems were simply powerful enough. She began looking for something more durable and reached out to Quality 1st Basement Systems to find out more about their powerful, energy-efficient dehumidifiers.
The ultra-efficient SaniDry XP removes the moisture from the air and blows out a dry air into the space. This system helps keep the humidity levels below 50%, reducing the chance for mold to grow. It also has a two-stage filter system to clean the air of allergens. There are no water catch-basins to empty as the system is self-draining. The high-capacity, high-efficiency SaniDry XP dehumidification system seemed to be exactly what was needed in Robin’s basement. It provided the assurance needed so Robin wouldn’t have to worry any more about mold growth and could run her system without running up her energy bill!
An open-air front porch. What a great amenity for any homeowner to relax on outdoors. What happens, though, if that prized area is slowly sinking? Homeowner Joseph S. from Riverside, NJ noticed a gradual sloping from one side of his porch to the other, a difference of nearly two inches. He searched on-line and found Quality 1st Basement Systems. He needed to know if PolyLEVEL could be used to repair his porch.
Specialist Kenny Tramutola visited Joseph and inspected his porch. With the concrete slab sinking and separating from the brick foundation, the PolyLEVEL process would be a quick and permanent fix for the porch. The process would involve the injection of structural grade polymers beneath the concrete porch slab through small holes, lifting and stabilizing the area. The material, less porous than concrete, would not wash out or deteriorate.
Joseph S. was ready to have his porch level again. Quality 1st Basement Systems completed the work and since PolyLEVEL cures within 15 minutes, Joseph was happily back on his porch in a very short time!
David R. from Medford, NJ was thinking about encapsulating his concrete-floor crawlspace. The space was damp and insulation was falling down. He scheduled an appointment to have waterproofing specialist Jeff Nero out to inspect the problem area, answer David’s questions, develop a plan for fixing the crawlspace, and provide a free estimate. David was pleased with the proposed plan and cost so he decided to move forward with the work.
Project Manager Victor Leon brought his crew to David’s property and began the remediation process. CleanSpace Drainage Matting was installed on the floor to eliminate sitting water and direct it to the SmartSump sump pump system. The high-quality, low-profile SmartSump would pump the water out and away from the home and disperse it onto the lawn through the LawnScape discharge outlet. An IceGuard was included along the discharge route for colder months, to prevent flooding if ice begins to block the way. Lastly, airtight CleanSpace vent covers were installed to seal out moisture and a CleanSpace liner was installed to complete the encapsulation by further preventing water vapor from making its way into the crawl space.
By the end of the project, David R. found his crawl space transformed from a dark, damp space beneath his home to a cleaner, brighter, drier area isolated from the earth. Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to please this customer!
Although homeowner Joana S. from Medford, NJ had no water problems in her crawl space, she did notice some musty smells circulating down there. She wasn’t sure what the best solution would be – a dehumidifier? A sump pump? A vapor barrier? She inquired with Quality 1st Basement Systems, looking for an expert to help her resolve her problem.
Waterproofing specialist John Schweitzer completed a thorough inspection of Joana’s crawl space, discussed the best options for resolving the musty smells (including a dehumidifier and vent covers), and provided her with a free estimate.
The low-profile, powerful, energy-efficient SaniDry CX removes the moisture from the air and blows out a dry air into the space. This system helps keep the humidity levels below 50%, reducing the chance for mold to grow. It also has a two-stage filter system to clean the air of allergens. There are no water catch-basins to empty as the system is self-draining. The high-capacity SaniDry CX dehumidification system installed in conjunction with CleanSpace vent covers (to seal out the moisture) seemed to be exactly what was needed in Joana’s crawl space to stop the musty smells. Joana could run her new system, removing the humid air that creates mold and musty smells, while saving energy at the same time!
One of Quality 1st Basement Systems’ foundation specialists, Kenny Tramutola, was scheduled to meet with a Medford homeowner who was looking to get a free estimate for his failing foundation wall. Kenny inspected the bowing basement wall. Though the problem may have initially seemed like an overwhelming situation for the homeowner, Kenny was able to assure him that the tools and products available was a sure solution.
Kenny determined that the best solution for this homeowner’s problem was the PowerBrace system of support. The corrosion-resistant system can mean more than support; it can potentially improve the wall over time by means of its patented system of tightening. With the homeowner’s consent, an installation date was scheduled. The installation of the steel beams immediately stabilized the home and prevented the wall from further movement. Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to put the homeowner at ease once again with a newly-secured foundation wall.

Quality 1st Basement Systems helped to create a more secure, drier basement and Helen T. was able to have peace of mind about her basement.
Hector from Mount Holly, NJ had a concrete walk area around the pool which was beginning to sink. It was becoming a trip hazard, dropping off from the nearby walk area by approximately 2”. In search of repair, Hector found Quality 1st Basement Systems on the internet and was curious about the PolyLEVEL process advertised for lifting and leveling concrete. He wondered if this could be the solution he was searching for, so he called Quality 1st and scheduled an appointment for a free estimate.
Certified PolyLEVEL professional John Schweitzer visited Hector and inspected the concrete area around the pool. John explained how the PolyLEVEL system is a quick fix for sinking concrete slabs. The process involves the injection of structural grade polymers beneath the concrete slabs through small holes, lifting and leveling the area; in essence, eliminating the tripping hazard. The environmentally friendly material used in this process is less porous than concrete and will not wash out or deteriorate in the ground.
Hector found what he was looking for to avoid replacing the concrete. He agreed to have Quality 1st Basement Systems complete the work and, since PolyLEVEL cures within 15 minutes, the concrete area around the Hector’s pool was soon no longer a tripping hazard and ready to be walked on again in almost no time!
Musty smells…water seepage...signs of a problem in the crawl space. What’s the next thing to do?
Well, Ray from Vincentown was lucky enough to have a friend who had work done by Quality 1st Basement Systems, so he soon learned that he could have a crawl space specialist visit to provide him with a free estimate for repairs to the problems he was experiencing. He had nothing to lose and was searching for a resolution. Without hesitation, he called to schedule an appointment.
A Quality 1st Basement Systems’ specialist completed a thorough inspection of the crawl space, answered Ray’s questions, and then suggested that TerraBlock padded insulation be installed on the crawl space floor for a combination of energy savings and moisture protection. In addition, SilverGlo Insulation Panels were suggested for the walls to result in additional water vapor protection while boosting energy efficiency as the panels reflect heat back into the crawl space. Then, the durable CleanSpace Crawl Space Vapor Barrier (with a 25-year warranty against rips and tears) would be a quick-install to further isolate the home from the earth, providing yet another barrier to moisture which can cause mold and musty smells. Lastly, installing a sturdy new, airtight Everlast Door made from inorganic plastics and foams would further help in sealing the space under the home.
Completion of the project permitted Ray to not only have a drier crawl space, but also to experience a warmer main level of her home with energy-cost savings. In addition, Ray took advantage of a Preferred Customer Discount being offered and saved money on his investment. Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to have helped Ray achieve a greater peace of mind through this crawl space remediation!

Towards the end of the summer, this Chatsworth homeowner had contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to winterize his parents crawl space. After seeing the results of warmer floors and lower heating bills, he decided to give Quality 1st another call to have a specialist come out to meet with him about his own.
The System Design Specialist drove out to Chatsworth, NJ and did a full inspection of the crawl space and designed a solution that best fit the concerns the homeowner had for his crawl space once the temperatures dropped.
The crew installed TerraBlock foam insulation to the floors and then covered it with CleanSpace moisture barrier to completely seal the floors. These two products work together to insulate and prevent moisture and humidity from forming inside the crawl space. Next, SilverGlo was installed against the walls to stop air leaks. SilverGlo has a built in heat barrier to help fight cold air. CleanSpace is then installed over the SilverGlo to again seal the crawl space from unwanted air, dirt and moisture or humidity build up. Lastly, the rim joist that rest on the foundation are sealed to prevent frigid air from coming through. Any windows or vents located in the crawl space are covered and seal to complete the winterized crawl space process.
Now the homeowner can enjoy his home this winter without having cold floors or a high heating bill each month! He was so pleased with the results that he referred Quality 1st Basement Systems to his neighbors.
A concerned homeowner in Hainesport, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to obtain a no-obligation, free estimate for her sinking and settling foundation.

The corrosion-resistant system can mean more than support; it can potentially improve the wall over time by means of its patented system of tightening. Because this system doesn’t involve any exterior work, the installation of the steel beams is quick and relatively non-invasive. The I-beams immediately stabilize the home and prevent the wall from further movement.
This homeowner decided to move forward with the solution proposed. Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to put the homeowner’s mind at ease with a newly-secured foundation wall and the homeowner could breathe a sigh of relief.

Uneven slabs around a pool can cause serious trip hazards which could result in serious injury if not careful. This is exactly why James and his wife contacted Quality 1st Basements. They wanted to remove the trip hazards and make the pool area more safe for their family. On the day the installation our foreman Richard, did a walkthrough of the area to make sure no Furniture or objects were near the area going to be raised. He explained to James exactly what he was going to accomplish and checked in midway through to keep him informed of any changes. Richard drilled small holes into the concrete slabs and injected PolyLevel foam below using special equipment.

A homeowner's front sidewalk that is used everyday for children to reach their bus stop for one of the schools in Pemberton, NJ was sinking and settling. They decided to contact Quality 1st Basements when they realized how uneven their sidewalk was. Since the sidewalk was used daily they wanted to prevent anyone from tripping over the uneven slabs. With school starting in just a few weeks, they needed a solution that would be quick and cause no distribution or delay to using the sidewalk. Our Concrete Repair Specialist, Jeff P., drove out to Pamberton, NJ to do a full inspection and provide the perfect solution.
Jeff recommended our Concrete Lifting and Leveling Solution, PolyLevel! For it lifts and levels each sinking slab by a clean and easy installation of Polyurethane foam. The PolyLevel is injected below the sinking slab to fill the void created from weak soil. When the void is filled, the Polylevel begins to lift and harden, bringing the slab back towards its original position. Each slab can be walked on or driven over within 15 minutes of completion. Not only was the Pemberton, NJ homeowner thrilled that the sidewalk would be rid of all tripping hazards, but relieved that the child could use the sidewalk for safe travel home from the bus.
Sam noticed puddles would form in his driveway after heavy rain due to sinking slabs in the middle of his driveway. Each of the four inner slabs had settled allowing the water to pool in the center and trapping almost 10 inches of water. Sam could not take the puddles any longer and started looking for concrete replacement options until he came across our concrete lifting and leveling solution, PolyLevel. Sam watched our Facebook PolyLevel video and was amazed at how easily we lifted and leveled multiple sidewalks, driveways and porches. He gave us a call right away for our Concrete Repair Specialist, Jeff, to provide the ultimate solution.
Jeff met with Sam and inspected not only his driveway but the patio area in the back to make sure no other slabs had settled. He explained that slabs sink because of the weak soil beneath the slab. Our PolyLevel solution will help the soil beneath the slab by offering additional support. Our team drills small penny- sizes holes into all four of the slabs. PolyLevel is injected beneath the slab where it expands filling any voids underneath. Once the slabs are leveled, PolyLevel hardens stabilizing the slabs.
A homeowner in Palmyra , NJ contacted us with sinking concrete concerns in the front of their home. The sidewalk in front of their home and the path leading up to their front door had settled creating an uneven walkway path. Not only was it an eyesore to the homeowner but also a trip hazard that could cause serious injury if not leveled. When they heard we had an alternative solution to concrete replacement, they contacted us right away for a free estimate.
Our Concrete Repair Specialist, Jeff P. met with the homeowner and did a full inspection of the sidewalks and pathways around the entire property. He measured roughly 2 inches of settlement on the from sidewalk, 3 inches of settlement on the walkway path and 1 inch of settlement on the back patio. The homeowner expressed their concerns about replacement since the new concrete would no longer match the existing. Jeff recommended our concrete raising solution, PolyLevel.
PolyLevel is a polyurethane foam that is injected beneath the sinking slab. The foam fills expands under the slab to fill any voids and raise the concrete. Once the concrete is raised back towards its original level, the foam hardens to stabilize the slab to prevent future settlement.
The homeowner was amazed at the professionalism of the crew, the customer service provided in the office and most important the installation process performed at the home. The homeowner was so happy they chose Quality 1st Basements to provide a solution for the concrete issues they were experiencing.
Quality 1st Basements raised a concrete driveway back towards it's original level, permanently stabilizing it to prevent future sinking and settling.
A Burlington, NJ homeowner had a concrete driveway that had settled causing trip hazards in multiple spots of the driveway. With the concrete being uneven, water would pool trapping the water in the driveway. The homeowner wanted to remove the trip hazards and raise the driveway back to level to allow water to flow straight into the grass.
Concrete Repair Specialist, Andy, explained that the soil beneath the slab was not strong enough to support the weight of the driveway causing it to sink. He recommended our team inject PolyLevel foam underneath to raise the concrete slab, and provide additional support to the concrete. PolyLevel is waterproof and environmentally friendly! It is a quick and clean installation and allows you to walk on the slab instantly once raised.
Our team came in drilled small penny-size holes into the concrete slabs. Using special equipment, PolyLevel is injected underneath the sinking slab. The foam expands, filling all the voids and raising the slab. Once the slab is at it's desired level, our team stops injecting and allows a few minutes for the PolyLevel foam to harden. Now the slabs are permanently raised and stabilized.
We sent Concrete Repair Specialist, Andy Gagliardi, out to inspect the pool deck area of a home in Roebling, NJ. Multiple slabs had settled creating trip hazards near the diving board and entrance to the stairs in the low end area. The homeowner wanted to repair the slabs without having to replace them since the concrete would no longer match the existing slabs.
Andy suggested Polyurethane foam known as PolyLevel since it quickly and cleanly raises concrete back to level without causing disruption to the surrounding pool area or landscaping. Within just 15 minutes of completion the concrete slabs could be walk over. The Roebling, homeowner knew right away that this environmentally friend solution was exactly what he was looking for.
Our team arrived on time and prepped the entire pool area for the installation. All pool deck furniture was removed as well as flower pots and the diving board. Our team drilled small penny-size holes into each concrete slab. Using special equipment, our crew injected PolyLevel underneath the slab raising it back towards its original level.
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.
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.
A Burlington County Resident contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after noticing the concrete slabs around his backyard patio had become uneven, creating a major safety hazard for his children and guest. They made an appointment with our Concrete Repair Specialist, Chris Bowe, to come out and provide them with a thorough inspection and options for a permeant solution.
Chris measured roughly 2 to 5 inches of settlement across the patio area. The unevenness over time created water stains from puddles of water being trapped on the slabs since they would not drain properly to the grass. He recommended PolyLevel because although its light weight, its strong and waterproof. It will fill the voids in between the soil and concrete, and raise the slabs back towards their original positions.
First, the crew drilled small, penny-shaped holes into the concrete slab. Next, our crew used specially designed equipment to inject structural graded polymers into the void. After filling the void, the expansion of the polyurethane then lifts the slab to its desired height. The process is repeated until the entire patio area is lifted to its proper height.
A couple in New Great, NJ recently purchased a home and needed a Foundation Repair expert out to inspect their basement walls that had diagonal cracks and bowing walls. They reached out to their neighbor asking if they recommended a Foundation company in the area that would provide them with an honest estimate. Being an existing customer of our, the neighbor recommended us right away to provide an estimate.
Upon inspection in the basement, Our Foundation Specialist, Javier noticed the bowing walls and cracks immediately. He also discovered new smaller cracks in the far corner of the basement. Our specialist told the couple that over time, the soil is exposed to dry weather causing it to shrink and turn into clay. The clay soil then puts amount of pressure against the walls of the basement walls, causing it to crack. Javier recommended our CarbonArmor System be installed to stabilize the basement walls and prevent future movement or cracking. This would prevent more damage and protect the structure and value of the home.
Our crew installed 5 Carbon Fiber Straps to each basement wall to secure and stabilize the foundation. First, our crew grinds the walls down to create a clean surface. They then apply an epoxy resin to the wall and place the carbon strap over it. Once installed, the carbon strap keeps the wall firmly in place.
The couple was amazed by the experience provided by our Quality 1st Basement Systems team and could not believe how quick and clean the installation was. The basement was cleaner then they found it and not a single piece of garage or tool was left behind.
