Hightstown Crawl Space Encapsulation Hightstown Crawl Space Encapsulation

The homeowner of this Hightstown residence noticed that he sometimes had standing water in his crawl space, but that the crawl space and area above it always seemed damp. Quality 1st Basement Systems insulated and encapsulated the crawl space to improve the quality of the home. CleanSpace crawl space vapor barrier was installed to seal off the crawl space from the cold, damp dirt and the porous, wet concrete.

Job Stories From Hightstown, NJ
Concrete Repair in Hightstown, NJ

This homeowner in Hightstown, New Jersey noticed their concrete porch was cracking and becoming uneven. This can happen when concrete is poured over poorly compacted soil. Over time, the soil settles and creates voids underneath the slab. If this goes without repair, someone could trip and injure themselves.

The homeowner searched online for solutions and came across Quality 1st Basement Systems. They gave us a call and our customer care representative booked them an appointment with our System Design Specialist, Joseph DelVecchio. Joseph provided a thorough inspection and suggested they use polyurethane foam to lift and level the concrete. 

A few days later, our foreman arrived and began the process of using our PolyLevel Injections. This is done by drilling small, penny-sized holes into the concrete and injecting the foam into the voids underneath. This process is repeated until the concrete slab is brought to a raised position. PolyLevel is a lightweight and environmentally friendly solution that will not add any weight to the existing soil. 

When the job was complete, the homeowner was satisfied with the results. They were able to safely walk on their concrete porch without the concern of tripping hazards! 

Pool Patio Repair in Robbinsville Township, NJ

A pool patio should provide safety for friends and family to walk on. This homeowner's pool patio in Robbinsville Township, New Jersey was sinking and settling. This happens because concrete is poured over backfilled soil, creating voids and causing the slab to shift.

The homeowner called Quality 1st Basement Systems after seeing our ad in a magazine. Our customer service representative booked them an appointment with our System Design Specialist, Chris Bowe. Chris provided an inspection and suggested they use polyurethane foam to lift the concrete. 

Our foreman, Sean Johnson, arrived at the job site and started installing the PolyLevel Injection System. This is done by drilling small, penny-sized holes into the concrete and injecting the foam into the voids underneath. PolyLevel is an environmentally friendly and lightweight solution that will not wash out or add weight to the existing soil.

About twenty minutes later, the job was complete and the homeowner was satisfied. After the install, they did not have any other issues with their concrete.

Horizontal Cracking Haulted in Hightstown, NJ

Homeowner Michael A. from Hightstown had some minor water seepage in his basement over the 25 years he lived there.  The cinder blocks began showing some small vertical cracking.  Michael became more concerned, however, once he noticed the more severe horizontal crack running along one wall.  He began an internet search for a solution and found Quality 1st Basement Systems.

Foundation specialist Kenneth Peare completed a thorough inspection of Michael’s foundation.  His proposed solution was to install the CarbonArmor system.  These fabric carbon fiber straps, with their stronger-than-concrete strength and low-profile design, would be the perfect solution to secure Michael’s weakened cinder block wall.  As installation occurs from the inside, Michael had no worries of disturbance to his lawn or landscaping. 

Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to help this Hightstown customer secure and stabilize his cracked basement wall.  Michael was sure to experience relief, knowing his basement was professionally, permanently, and effectively repaired.   

A Quality 1st Cure for a Troubled Basement in Hightstown, NJ

A cinder block basement wall - cracked, bowing, leaning - needs attention before the problem gets worse.  This is why an engineer referred one of his clients from Hightstown, NJ to Quality 1st Basement Systems, to have a foundation specialist discuss the process and products involved in repairing the failing foundation and to provide a free written estimate.   It was also noted by the engineer that the homeowner would need waterproofing for the basement as well since moisture in the soil around the home exerts pressure on the foundation wall (which can ultimately lead to a failing foundation). 

Basement waterproofing and foundation specialist Kenny Tramutola completed a thorough inspection of the basement.  He observed the horizontal crack and bowing cinder block wall and completed a thorough inspection of the entire basement and foundation.  First, Kenny proposed installation of a waterproofing system to take care of the large basement with a water problem.  It included a full perimeter WaterGuard, two UltraSump sump pumps and two SuperSumps sump pumps (to cover opposite ends of the basement), IceGuards, and LawnScape Outlets.   Water seepage through the basement walls would move to the WaterGuard, be directed to the sump pump systems, and be pumped out of the basement.  Flooding in winter months would be prevented (if the discharge line freezes) by inclusion of IceGuards.  The LawnScape Outlets would help move the discharge water away from the home and disperse it on the lawn.   

Next, Kenny addressed the issue of the cracked and bowing wall.  He proposed installation of the low-profile design CarbonArmor system.  These carbon fiber straps, specifically designed for basement walls, are stronger than concrete and are installed from the inside.  They help stabilize the wall from further movement. 

Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to install both systems for this Hightstown couple.  The waterproofing system would prevent seepage from damaging the basement space by directing it out of the home and the revolutionary wall straps would provide a secure, stable foundation.  No more worries about the basement for these homeowners!   



Long-Term Reliability Installed in Hightstown, NJ

When a Hightstown couple were purchasing their home, the previous owners informed them that the sump pump should probably be replaced as it was 20 or so years old.  They wanted to be on the safe side so they began a search on the internet for a sump pump dealer. 

They found Quality 1st Basement Systems and scheduled an appointment to have a waterproofing specialist come to their home to inspect the existing system and to give them a free estimate on a new one.  Specialist John Schweitzer met with the couple and proposed a plan to meet the homeowners’ needs, to ensure that an efficient and reliable sump pump system be installed to prevent flooding.

An UltraSump sump pump with a battery backup was installed to provide protection from flooding.  In the event that there is a power outage or failure of the first pump, the battery backup would automatically take over.  Two additional pieces installed would provide more flood-prevention security.  The LawnScape discharge outlet would move the water discharged from the pump out and away from the home and disperse it onto the lawn.  Also, an IceGuard along the discharge route would prevent flooding if ice begins to block the way during the colder months.

The new powerful sump pump system would provide long-term reliability.  The homeowners were happy to have Quality 1st Basement Systems help alleviate their worries about basement flooding.
