The sidewalks in front of this Fair Lawn residence were uneven due to settlement under the concrete. Quality 1st Basement Systems isntalled the PolyLEVEL concrete leveling system to repair the sunken concrete. PolyLEVEL is a two part poly-urethane foam which is injected underneath the concrete to raise it back to its original level. PolyLEVEL is very lightweight which means it will not cause further settlement. PolyLEVEL is the cheaper, faster, more modern alternative to mudjacking. The sidewalk slabs have been repaired, and there are no longer any tripping hazards for this family!

This Fair Lawn, NJ home had a leaking basement. The water was coming in through the walls as well as the floor joints. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed BrightWall on the basement to stop the water from seeping in through the concrete. A TripleSafe battery backup sump pump was installed to pump the water from the WaterGuard basement drain system out of the basement.

Now this homeowner will save on their heating bill, because EverLast windows feature insulated glass. They will never need to be sanded or repainted, will never rust or rot, and will always look beautiful.

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

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 Fair Lawn, NJ
Pool Patio Lifting in Fair Lawn, NJ

A Fair Lawn, New Jersey homeowner noticed their concrete pool patio was becoming unlevel and sinking. This occurs because of the poorly compacted soil underneath the slab. Over time, this soil settles and creates voids underneath the slab, causing it to become unlevel. This can be a dangerous safety hazard, especially near a pool. A friend or family member could trip over this unlevel surface and really injure themselves.

The homeowner called Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Jack Huber, was able to provide an inspection and help them find a solution to this issue. Upon his inspection, Jack suggested a polyurethane foam be injected underneath the slab to lift it to its original position.

Our foreman arrived on the job site and began installing the PolyLevel Injection System which is achieved by drilling small penny-sized holes into the slab. Then, the polyurethane foam is injected into the voids to lift and level the concrete. The polyurethane foam has expanding properties that allow for an accurate lift and leveling of the slab.

When the job was complete, the homeowner was pleased with the outcome. They were able to safely walk on their pool patio without the hazard of tripping.

BrightWall Creates a Bright, Water Free Space

On the unfinished side of her basement in Fair Lawn, NJ, water was coming into Jean C.’s home.  She knew it was time for some expert help, and was referred to contact Quality 1st Basement Systems by Peter M.  After speaking on the phone and scheduling a free estimate, waterproofing expert John Ruggiano met with Jean to find the cause of the water and come up with a permanent solution. 

Most of the water was leaking in where the wall and floor met, so John recommended the installation of our BrightWall system, the WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system, a SuperSump, and an UltraSump battery backup.  BrightWall is a specifically designed basement wall panel system that not only looks great and will brighten up your basement, but also effectively drains water AND stops water vapor. 

Jean C.’s basement water problems were fixed in one quick day by the professional installers from Quality 1st.  Her basement is now semi-finished, dry, and a healthy space that could be turned into something more!  Don’t let a leaky basement put a damper on your home, contact us today for more information about any of our basement waterproofing products.     

Install the SuperSump to Keep Your Basement Dry

Linda and Frank S. contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems looking to get an estimate for the installation of a sump pump.  Little did they know, their basement waterproofing system would be composed of much more to keep their Fair Lawn, NJ basement dry for years to come. 

Waterproofing specialist Damon Ludwig met with the couple and determined that a SuperSump sump pump system, UltraSump, and WaterGuard would be the perfect solution to their basement water problem.  The SuperSump basement sump pump system has a patented airtight cover that keeps odors to a minimum as well as bugs and pests from falling into the sump. In case of a power outage or pump failure, the SuperSump houses a secondary battery backup sump pump called the UltraSump. 

A dry basement is always a possibility with the help of your local basement waterproofing experts.  Linda and Frank S. no longer have a leaky basement, but can enjoy a clean, dry basement all year round!  

Waterproof and Finish Your Fair Lawn Basement Today

Getting your basement waterproofed is a step in the right direction if you are looking to finish or refinish your basement space.  Melanie and Daniel S. had already installed carpet in their basement when water starting coming in through the walls and windows.  Luckily it wasn’t too late!  Quality 1st Basement Systems had the perfect solutions to keep this basement dry so they could continue with the finishing job.
