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

Job Stories From Hillsborough, NJ
Concrete Porch Repair in Hillsborough, NJ

A homeowner in Hillsborough, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after discovering their porch had sunk about two inches. We had our System Design Specialist, Jack Huber, inspect the area and provide a quote for the homeowner. 

After arriving at the home, on time, Jack provided a full inspection of the porch. Luckily, there were no cracks so the only repair was to lift the porch back to its original height. Jack presented this to the homeowner and recommended the Polylevel Injection would be the perfect solution. The homeowner agreed and another appointment was scheduled for our crew to repair the porch. 

One of the benefits of polylevel is that the installation process is less messy than mudjacking. Our crew drills small holes into the concrete slab and injects small structural-graded polymers into the void. Once the void has been filled the expansion of the polymers lifts the slab to the desired height. This process is repeated until the porch has been repaired. Finally, polylevel is waterproof, environmentally friendly, and takes fifteen minutes to recover. 

Since the installation, the homeowner did not experience any settling on their porch. They were very happy with the installation process and were fully satisfied with the results. 

Basement Waterproofing Installation in Hillsborough, NJ

A homeowner in Hillsborough, NJ was in need of replacing their waterproofing system. The homeowner has a finished basement, so they knew that a complete waterproofing system would prevent their basement from undergoing serious water issues. After searching on the Internet for solutions, the homeowner found Quality 1st Basement Systems and decided to contact them for a solution. 

The homeowner scheduled an appointment with our System Design Specialist, Javier Romero. Javier fully inspected the basement and, luckily, found there were no signs of water seepage. To guarantee the basement will stay fully secure, Javier strongly recommended our WaterGuard French Drain System and Smart Sump Pump. With these two products combined, excess water will be collected by the WaterGuard System and then pumped away from the basement by the Smart Sump Pump. 

In the end, the homeowner was happy with the results. The installation process was a success, and the fully waterproofing system is ready for action! 

Dry, Usable Basement Space Created in Hillsborough, NJ

Looking to make better use of her basement space, Sarah B. in Hillsborough, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule a free estimate with a basement design specialist.

Kenneth Peare visited and suggested that Sarah install the SaniDry XP, an energy efficient dehumidifier and air filtration system to keep the humidity levels low and to trap dust and allergens in the basement.  Sarah was also interested in flooring.  She selected the tongue-and-groove Mill Creek mahogany flooring.  This plastic wood-look-a-like plank flooring is totally inorganic, which means that mold will not grow on it even if the humidity levels increase.  Sarah was pleased with the newly-created usable space in her basement.   

Finding a Fix for a Wet Basement in Hillsborough, NJ

Kevin from Hillsborough, NJ was experiencing the frustration of having a continuously wet basement. He searched online for an answer and found Quality 1st Basement Systems. Kevin called Quality 1st to schedule a free estimate and learn more about a remedy for his problems.

One of Quality 1st’sbasement specialists, Kenny Tramutola, met with Kevin to design a system tailored to his basement waterproofing needs.  Jesus Alvarez-Sanchez, Project Manager, mobilized his crew to install an UltraSump and a SuperSump to discharge any basement seepage.  They also installed an IceGuard to prevent flooding should the discharge line freeze during the colder months.  A LawnScape was set in place to disperse the discharge on the lawn away from the home.  Kevin found the installation to be just what he needed to keep his basement drier!

Believe there might be seepeage in basement wall section and would like to get an estimate to waterproof it from the outside .
Project Location: Hillsborough, NJ
Hi team, I have a 2-year old home with a basement that already flooded twice, both during the end-Aug/early-Sep period. I suspect grading issues and a relatively more vulnerable situation with rain water flow into the property than rest of the homes in the community. We've also observed that some of the water pumped out of the sump pit is actually coming back into the pit, which continues to overwhelm both the primary and back-up pumps (during Ida). The Township code has been recently updated that now mandates two pits. In light of that and also to effectively address the recurring flooding issue, I'd like to request an evaluation from your team for an internal French drain (or other options as you recommend) and a quote for fixing this issue. If you could please text or email your availability, that'll be wonderful. If all goes well, I'm looking to have this completed before the year-end. Hoping the schedules will work out. Please let me know. Thank you. Best regards, Mani.
