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.

The drainage system also works as part of crawl space encapsulation.

  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement

Job Stories From Chester, NJ
Magazine Ad and Discount Directs Homeowner to Solution for Basement Water Intrusion in Chester, NJ

One homeowner had a large, usable area with painted walls and floor in his unfinished basement.  However, whenever there were heavy rains, water came seeping through one wall.  Over time, the repeated intrusion and wetness caused the paint to get discolored in some places while it peeled in others.  Flipping through The Home Mag one day, this homeowner decided it was time to find a solution to this rainy day recurrence and called Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule a free estimate appointment.   

Jeff Nero, a Quality 1st Basement Waterproofing Specialist, visited the homeowner, completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection of the basement, and determined the best solution to the water problems being experienced in this home.  The homeowner received a free estimate for the proposed work after the specialist answered all questions and addressed any concerns.

Ready to resolve this basement water problem once and for all, a Quality 1st Basement Systems installation crew headed by Project Foreman Esau Aquino mobilized to Chester, NJ to fix the water intrusion problem.  They installed a WaterGuard System along the problem wall (to channel and direct any water seepage to the sump pump). A SuperSump sump pump was also installed, to efficiently and reliably remove water from the basement area.  An IceGuard (designed to prevent flooding in the event of frozen discharge pipes) and a LawnScape outlet (to direct discharge water away from the home and disperse it on the lawn) were also part of the protection installed for this homeowner. 

Quality 1st Basement Systems helped to create a more secure, drier basement for this homeowner while honoring the discount offered in the magazine.  The homeowner was undoubtedly relieved to have the worries about water intrusion alleviated.

Other homes in the area have needed drains and sump pumps installed. After heavy rain there is an area that collects a small puddle of water. The basement is usually damp and would like to install a pump as a preventative measure of water coming through the foundation.

Hi! I've recently moved into a home that's over 200 years old in Chester with a dirt basement and low ceiling. I want to install a vapor barrier, potentially concrete floor, and ensure the stone walls are waterproof. Additionally the brick support wall in the middle of the basement has mortar that needs to be repaired.

My wife and I are looking at buying a property in Chester, New Jersey however, the property was built in 1836 and the foundation is a problem. Part of the home is on a slab, part is on an old cellar and part is on the dirt with some rubble around it. Before we consider the property, we want to get an idea of the cost of either 1) a full foundation replacement and excavation or 2) partial foundation repair (putting a slab in and reinforcing and waterproofing existing foundation.
