A Howell homeowner loved his finished basement, but noticed the walls were beginning to peel and ripple due to moisture. Quality 1st Basement Systems sent a team to help replace his old walls with EverLast Wall Panels. These are made with a waterproof vinyl finish, which also makes them resistant to wear and tear. Now this homeowner has beautifully finished walls that will "hold up!"

This Howell, NJ basement had cracks in the basement walls. Water was entering the basement through those cracks causing a damp and humid environment. The moisture also caused mold growth behind the sheetrock.

Quality 1st Basement Systems installed the Basement to Beautiful System which removes the need for fiberglass insulation and wood studs which both grow mold. EverLast basement wall panels were then installed to give the basement a fresh, clean look. EverLast wall panels contain no organic material which means they cannot be damaged by water or grow mold, making them the perfect solution to finish any basement space!

Job Stories From Howell, NJ
Sinking Pool Patio Lifted in Howell, NJ

A pool patio should not consist of unlevel concrete slabs. This homeowner's concrete patio in Howell, New Jersey was beginning to sink. This happens because the concrete is poured over backfilled soil and begins to settle and create voids underneath. If gone unrepaired, this could be a dangerous tripping hazard.

The homeowner called Quality 1st Basement Systems after seeing our ad on Facebook, and they were matched with our System Design Specialist, Joe Mancini. Joe provided an inspection of the home and he suggested they use polyurethane foam to lift the concrete.

Our foreman arrived at the site and began the process of using the PolyLevel Injection System. This is completed by drilling tiny holes into the slab and injecting the foam to fill the voids underneath. This system can be installed within fifteen minutes and is safe to walk on. PolyLevel is lightweight, and environmentally friendly and will not add weight to the existing soil.

When the job was complete, the homeowner was happy with the outcome. Their pool patio was leveled and they did not have to worry about tripping hazards.

Sinking Concrete Repair in Howell, NJ

A homeowner in Howell, New Jersey noticed their concrete sidewalk was becoming unlevel and sinking. This occurs when the soil is backfilled and poorly compacted. This loose soil settles over time and creates voids under the concrete. As you can see in the picture, this concrete sidewalk is severely unlevel. This can be a dangerous safety hazard because other residents can trip and hurt themselves.

The homeowner contacted Quality First Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Jack Huber, provided an inspection and helped them find a solution. Upon his inspection at the site, Jack noticed how the concrete was sinking into the ground. Jack suggested a polyurethane foam to be injected underneath the slab to lift and level it.

Our foreman used the PolyLevel Injection System to be injected underneath the concrete. This process is done by drilling tiny holes in the concrete and injecting the polyurethane foam to fill the voids underneath. The expanding properties of the polyurethane foam allow for accurate lifting and leveling of the slab.

PolyLevel can be injected in a matter of a few hours and requires very minimal disruption to the existing concrete. This solution is a lightweight, waterproof, environmentally friendly, solution that will not wash out or add weight to the existing soil.

When the job was complete, the homeowner was pleased with the outcome. The sidewalk was lifted to its original position, and there was no concern or the stress of tripping over the concrete.

Crawl Space Waterproofing & Insulation Installed in Howell, NJ

Quality 1s Basements provided the best solution for a family living in Howell who was experiencing water in their crawl space. Quality 1st installed a WaterGuard drainage system that connects to a SmartSump Pump. Together, the water is collected from the crawl space foundation wall and directed straight to the SmartSump pump which then pumps the water out and about 15 feet away from the home. IceGuard is installed to the outside discharge pipe as an alternative exit for water in case the pipes in the ground were to freeze. This will allow the water to continue to be pumped out of the crawl space and not back inside. Next, CleanSpace, a vapor barrier, and SilverGlo, a heat barrier, are installed to the walls and floors of the crawl space to reflect heat to keep the area warm and to prevent water and moisture inside the crawl space. Lastly, a Sedona Dehumidifier is installed to properly circulate dry area throughout the crawl space to prevent moisture and a musty odor from forming. Sealing off the crawl space will prevent water and cold drafts inside, making the area warm and dry, keeping the home comfortable and healthy. 

Cracked Foundation Saved with CarbonArmor

When the horizontal crack in the basement was getting worse and the wall started bowing inwards, Matt from Howell knew his basement was in trouble. A neighbor recommended Quality 1st Basement Systems and Matt called right away.

Quality 1st Basement and Foundation Expert, Nick Biris, inspected the basement and could see the structural integrity of the home was at risk. He recommended CarbonArmor to secure the wall. CarbonArmor is a wall reinforcing system that is 10 times stronger than steel.

The Quality 1st crew arrived and installed 8 CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcing Strips on the problem wall. The entire project was completed quickly and the crew left the basement clean. Now that the home is safe once again, Matt knows he called the best company for the job. Quality 1st Basement Systems gets his recommendation every time!

I am currently in the process of buying a house in Howell. One main issue that we found was that the crawl space needed to be dried out and removed of the mold so a vapor seal and barrier and be put. The owners said they would fix this issue and I don't think that they did because they stopped answering us. So I wanted to reach out and find a quote of how much it would cost to do this to a 1560 square foot crawl space.
