This driveway in Clifton, NJ was settling 1 to 2 inches and the homeowner wanted it repaired as soon as possible with winter approaching. Quality 1st Basement Systems injected PolyLevel under each sinking slab, raising it back to level. Once underneath the slab, PolyLevel expands and hardens lifting each one up back to its original state. This is cheaper then having to remove and replace the driveway slabs and the best part is it causes no disturbance to the home or its surrounding area.

Clifton's Basement, Crawl Space & Foundation Contractor

For over 25 years, Quality 1st Basements has been the trusted basement & foundation company of Clifton. 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
  • Improved Home Value

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.

Repairs for:
  • Wall Cracks
  • Bowing Walls
  • Uneven Floors
  • Settling Foundations
  • Uneven Concrete Slabs       
We Use: 
  • Wall Anchors
  • I-Beam Wall Braces
  • Foundation & Slab Piers

Along with general foundation problems we also fix sunken concrete slabs using PolyLEVEL. PolyLEVEL is an expansive polyurethane foam that fills in the gaps beneath the sunken concrete and lifts it back up to a level position. It also does not erode or wash away. If you are looking for the right foundation repair company, you found it. Let's get started.

Job Stories From Clifton, NJ
Crawl Space: From Dark, Dank to Cleaner, Drier in Clifton, NJ

Agnus S. from Clifton, NJ was hoping to eliminate dampness and water problems in her crawlspace.  She scheduled an appointment to have Waterproofing Specialist Dan McNally out to inspect the problem area and develop a plan for resolving the wetness beneath the home.  The next step was to put the plan into action!

Project Manager Victor Leon brought his crew to Agnus’s property and began the remediation process of waterproofing the crawl space by installing SmartPipe drainage pipe around the perimeter, designed to collect water from foundation walls and floors of dirt crawl spaces. CleanSpace Drainage Matting was installed on the floor to eliminate sitting water and direct it to the drainage system. The SuperSump would pump the water out and away from the home and disperse it onto the lawn through the LawnScape discharge outlet.  IceGuard was included along the discharge route for colder months, to prevent flooding if ice begins to block the way.  

Additionally, the waterproofing plan included TerraBlock padded insulation to provide additional moisture protection while boosting energy efficiency.  SilverGlo Insulation Panels would further the energy efficiency by reflecting heat back into the crawl space. Lastly, a CleanSpace liner was installed to complete the encapsulation by further preventing vapor from making its way into the crawl space.

By the end of the project, Agnus S. found her crawl space transformed from a dark, dank, dirt-floor space beneath her home to a cleaner, brighter, drier area isolated from the earth.  She would also experience a warmer main level of her home but with energy-cost savings!
