Like many homeowners, Bob in Oldwick, NJ wasn't satisfied with his basement window. The window frame was old, rusty, and sometimes leaked moisture into the basement. Cold drafts came through the window in winter, and hot air in summer. He wanted a new basement window that he wouldn't have to worry about.
Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a vinyl framed basement window. Since the frame is vinyl, it is waterproof and will never rot or rust. It loosk fresh, modern, and up to date. On top of the window, foreman Jesus Alvarez-Sanchez and his crew installed a window well. The clear window well allows light to shine in through the window, but prevents dirt, snow, and water from coming in. It is bright and attractive, giving this basement window an instant facelift. Bob was impressed with how fast installation was and how clean the crew was. They tidied up after installation and left Bob's house with him feeling great about his choice.
The excitement that comes with purchasing a new home is unmatched. Imagine, however, that during a heavy rain, you notice the basement in your dream home starting to accumulate water. A homeowner in Long Branch found himself in such a situation. He contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule a free estimate from a company with expertise in waterproofing.
One of Quality 1st’s waterproofing specialists, Dan McNally, proposed a waterproofing system tailored to meet the homeowner’s basement waterproofing needs. He included a full-perimeter WaterGuard system, both an UltraSump and SuperSump sump pump, and a FloodRing. The WaterGuard is a sub-floor drainage system which directs wall seepage to the pumps for discharge. Installation of a FloodRing around the water heater is a preventative measure to contain any water leakage and direct it to the WaterGuard.
With the efficient waterproofing system installed by a production crew, the new homeowner was surely happy that Quality 1st Basement Systems helped alleviate his worries about water in his basement!
Water in the basement doesn’t have to flood in to be a nuisance. Matt P. of Whitehouse Station knew that too well. He owned the home for five years, all the time experiencing a slow seepage through the walls, but enough was enough. He searched for professional help and found Quality 1st Basement Systems.
Waterproofing specialist Ken Peare visited Matt’s home, completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection of the home, answered Matt’s questions, and designed a basement waterproofing system that included the best options for meeting Matt’s needs. He provided a free written estimate for the proposed work as well, leaving the homeowner everything he needed to make a well-informed decision.
A TripleSafe sump pump was proposed as it includes an efficient primary pump, a back-up pump (in case the first one fails or if there is a need for extra pumping power), and a third battery-operated pump (designed to kick in if the power goes out). The pump is installed and connected to a full perimeter WaterGuard to channel any incoming moisture. IceGuards installed also prevent a flood in the event that the discharge lines freeze during the colder months and a LawnScape Outlet discreetly disperses water on the lawn, away from the foundation of the home. This method of removing water intruding into the basement made sense to Matt.
Further protection added included Flood Check Hoses to prevent a flood disaster from washing machine backup and a Flood Ring around the water heater, to direct water to the WaterGuard in the event that the water heater leaks or breaks down.
Additionally, Matt wanted to replace the old basement windows. He opted for new vinyl Everlast Windows as well as new SunHouse Window Wells, to bring more natural light into the basement area while keeping water, dirt, and debris out of the wells.
Last on the list of helping to keep the basement drier, Ken proposed the installation of a SaniDry XP. This ultra-efficient dehumidifier and air purification system removes moisture from the air and blows out a dry air into the space. This system was designed to keep the humidity levels below 50%, reducing the chance for mold to grow. Additionally, it contains a two-stage filter system to eliminate dust particles from the air.
Matt dealt with a continually damp basement from water seeping through the walls for five years, but Quality 1st Basement Systems helped Matt attain a greater level of relief from these problems. He could have peace of mind knowing his basement space is being kept drier and healthier for his family’s sake from thereon after.

This Quakertown family was experiencing water intrusion in the basement. The homeowners had been using the basement for storage and during a very heavy rain the basement flooded. Some of their belongings were damaged during the flood, in addition to the walls and floor.
Jeff Nero was assigned the duty to come out and evaluate the basement and provide a permanent solution for this family. He performed a complete assessment of the basement and recommended the Waterguard Basement Waterproofing System, the TripleSafe Sump Pump System, and the SaniDry Air System. The WaterGuard and the TripleSafe work together to keep the basement dry at all times. The SaniDry Air System is a high-performance dehumidifier that eliminates musty odors and filters the air.
Quality 1st Basement Systems created a safe environment in the basement for this Quakertown family. This basement can now store the most valuable belongings without the family fearing of future damages of their things.
Quality 1st Basement Systems was referred to a Lambertville homeowner by a neighbor who was experiencing similar concerns in their crawl space and had Quality 1st out to provide a solution. The crawl space had a musty odor and was very damp and cold. An appointment was made to have System Design Specialist, Ken Peare, out to inspect the problem in the area and design a solution.
Ken Peare noticed efflorescence on certain walls of the crawl space indicating that water had come through. He recommended waterproofing and encapsulation to completely seal off the crawl space from water, cold air and animals . Ken also recommended a dehumidifier to allow proper circulation of dry air throughout the space as well.
Quality 1st Foreman, Melvin Cardoza and his crew installed WaterGuard on the footing of the foundation above the mud zone to prevent dirt from clogging the french drain. The WaterGuard directs the water straight to the SmartSump Pump when is specifically design for the crawlspace area. What makes this Sump pump the perfect fit is it's special lid that detects plumbing leaks. The water from the leak will fill an alarm pocket which will sound a WaterWAtch that will notify you of this leak.
The crew installed SilverGlo insulation that has a heat barrier which keeps the heat in the crawlspace during cold months. SilverGlo is a great energy savor because it helps heat the home faster making it a great product for this damp and cold crawl space. Cleanspace was applied over the SilverGlo to prevent water vapor and humidity from passing through providing the crawl space with ultimate protection. This tough liner will keep dirt, water and animals out, allowing the homeowner to use this space as storage if needed.
The homeowner was very pleased with the work done by Quality 1st and the crew that they too referrer Quality 1st Basement Systems to people they know are experiencing problems in their basements and crawl space.
A couple renting a home in Pittstown found water seeping into their basement on the driveway side of the home time and time again. They wanted to invest in the home for purchase, but they needed to be sure that the basement water problems could be resolved first. They contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule a free estimate appointment.
Ken Peare, a Quality 1st Basement Waterproofing Specialist, visited the home, completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection of the basement, and determined the best solution to the water problems being experienced in this home. He provided a free estimate for the proposed work after answering all questions and addressing any concerns.
Installation of a WaterGuard System along the problem wall would effectively channel and direct any water seepage to the sump pump. A SuperSump sump pump would efficiently and reliably remove water from the basement area, while an UltraSump Battery Backup System would provide continued flood protection in the event of a power outage. While the SuperSump’s powerful cast-iron pump is capable of removing 2,220 gallons of water per hour, the UltraSump backup pump will pump 11,500 gallons of water per hour on a full charge. Additionally, an IceGuard installation would prevent flooding in the event of frozen discharge pipes.
The couple moved forward with the purchase of the home and had Quality 1st Basement Systems ease their worries by completing the waterproofing installation. Quality 1st Basement Systems was glad to help the concerned couple with a resolution to their rainy day problems!
Basements. Extra space waiting to be utilized, for storage, for an office, for an entertainment room or playroom, or a for a list of other uses. But what if water seeps into the area, preventing full usage of the space in the way hoped for?
This is just the situation that a homeowner found himself in the middle of in his home in Frenchtown, NJ. Ryan had a large basement space and he was anxious to begin finishing it. He noticed, however, a few vertical cracks in the walls where rain water would seep in. To finish the basement and cover over the walls without repairing the cracks, he knew, would be counterproductive. Flipping through the Home Improvement Guide, Ryan found an ad for Quality 1st Basement Systems and decided to call.
Ryan contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule a free estimate appointment, and a Quality 1st Basement Waterproofing Specialist visited the Frenchtown home, completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection of the basement, and developed a plan for repair. A free estimate for the proposed work was given to the homeowner after all of his questions and concerns were addressed.
FlexiSpan Foundation Crack Repair is a permanent solution to leaking cracks in basement walls. The polyurethane polymer seal is unique in that it doesn’t dry out and remains flexible, unlike some other crack repair products on the market. This sealant allows for the FlexiSpan to remain bonded while being able to move with the slightest movement in the foundation. Throughout, then, the Flexispan remains intact, continuing to prevent water from seeping in through the foundation cracks.
Ryan moved forward with the FlexiSpan installation. Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to provide a permanent solution to the problem that would allow the homeowner to move forward with basement finishing with his newly-instilled confidence in having a drier basement.
A homeowner from Stockton, NJ felt his home was secure from flooding. Joe C., the homeowner, already had drains installed around the perimeter of his basement and he had a sump pump to discharge accumulated water. For five or six years, the system seemed to be working for him and had no problems with water in the basement. That was until his basement flooded during hurricane Irene. 18” of water filled his basement during the weather catastrophe! Afterwards, during a heavy rain, his basement filled again, this time with only 3”-4” of water. But water should not be flooding in a basement equipped with a drainage system and sump pumps, should it?
Joe needed an expert waterproofing opinion on his dilemma. He just so happened to have an acquaintance who had referred him to Quality 1st Basement Systems. Joe called and arranged to have a no obligation, free estimate. A certified waterproofing specialist visited Joe C. to complete a thorough interior and exterior inspection and provide a free estimate for the best solution to meet his needs. The specialist proposed the installation of two TripleSafe Sump Pump Systems to manage the influx of water to the basement that Joe was experiencing during heavy rains.
A Triple Safe Sump Pump System includes an efficient primary pump, a back-up pump (in case the first one fails or if there is a need for extra pumping power), and a third battery-operated pump (designed to kick in if the power goes out). The flood protection provided in each system includes a powerful cast-iron primary pump which can discharge 2,220 gallons of water per hour while the secondary pump can kick in if needed to pump an additional 3,900 gallons of water per hour out of the basement. The battery backup sump pump is capable of pumping 11,500 gallons of water on a single battery charge.
Joe C. wanted peace of mind. He didn’t want to deal with any more basement flooding. Joe was presented with an excellent system as well as a Preferred Customer Discount. With Quality 1st Basement Systems’ help, he was able to attain the level of flood protection that he needed for his home in Stockton, NJ, extra-affordably priced!
High Bridge homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems when they noticed their front steps of their home had started to sink. Not only did it create an eye sore in front of the home but they wanted to repair it right away before it completely separated from the foundation. Concrete Repair Specialist, Jeffrey Pitek did a full inspection of not only the stairs but the walk way as well to make sure there was no tripping hazards from other sinking concrete slabs. Jeffrey measured roughly 4 inches of settlement from the steps original position. He reassured the homeowner that they would not have to replace the steps since PolyLevel would be the perfect solution to raise them.
Project Manager, Arturo Jacuinde and his crew injected PolyLevel underneath the concrete steps. Once underneath, PolyLevel begins to expand and harden raising the steps to level. The crew is very careful when injecting the foam, so that the steps are raised to the correct amount. The homeowner was amazed to see how easy it was to raise the steps and relieved that they wouldn’t have to be replaced. Quality 1st Basement Systems removed the eye sore from the front of the homeowner’s house and permanently stabilized the front steps.
Homeowner living in Flemington, NJ noticed water seeping in from the middle of the basement floor during heavy rain. The most amount of water they had ever received in the basement was large puddles.

System Design Specialist, Laszlo lenkey, noticed damp walls, signs of mold and standing water upon his inspection.
Quality 1st Basement Systems removed the existing sump pump system and installed WaterGuard along the entire perimeter of the basement.

The homeowner was so pleased with the work done by Quality 1st Basement Systems that they always recommend Quality 1st to friends and family experiencing water concerns.
Quality 1st Basements recieved a call from a homeowner who was experincing water in her basement located in Clinton, NJ. She went right to google to search for her local basement waterproofing comapny and discovered Quality 1st Basements website. After reading through some reviews, she decided to call for a free estimate. Customer Service Respresentative, Keashan, was able to schedule an appoointment with Senior Design Specilaist, Ken Peare who has been with Quality 1st Basements for over 10 years. Ken drove out to Clinton to meet with the homeonwer and do a full inspection of the basement.
Ken recommended a full perimeter waterproofing system be installed to protect the basement against future leaks and floods. Juan Garcia and his team installed WaterGuard drainage system around the entire basement. WaterGuard is then attached to both TripleSafe sump pumps which were placed in two separate corners of the basement for that ultimate protection. A SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier was also recommended to eliminate damp, musty odors while filtering mold spores, dust mites droppings and dust. Together, all three products will keep the basement dry and healthy! The homeowner was amazed at the quality of air since the basement has been waterproofed.
Quality 1st Basements was contacted by a homeowner from Clinton, NJ to lift and level several sinking slabs in front of their home. Quality 1st was able to send Concrete Repair Specialist, Andy Gagliardi out to inspect the slabs and offer a permanent solution. Andy did a full inspection of the concrete around the entire outside of the home and noticed multiple sinking sidewalk slabs located in the front of the home with settlement up to 4 inches. In the backyard around the pool area, Andy measured roughly 2 to 2 1/2 inches of settlement. These tripping hazards could cause a serious injury so Andy completely understood why the homeowner was so eager to have these looks at.
Andy recommended PolyLevel Injection foam to raise the settled concrete slabs. Small penny-sized holes are drilled into each concrete slab then PolyLevel is injected underneath. The foam expands then hardens rasing the slab back to its original state, removing the tripping hazard.
A homeowner living in the area of Clinton, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basements for a free estimate on Crawl Space Repair when he realized how nasty his crawl space had become over the summer. Inside, you could smell a musty odor from all the humidity and moisture from the water. The walls were damp and the System Design Specialist noticed efflorescence had begun to form on the walls as well. The System Design Specialist, recommended a full crawl space encapsulation system be installed to prevent future water leaks and mositure from damaging not only the crawl space but the quality of air in the crawl space as well.
Foreman Wilver, and his team installed a WaterGuard drainage system and a SmartSump pump to protect against future flooding and leaks. Next the team installed SilverGlo, a heat barrier, on the walls to contain heat in the crawl space during the winter months. Over the SilverGlo, the team installed a vapor barrier known as CleanSpace, which is a bright white liner. CleanSpace will not only help direct the water to the WaterGuard but also prevent mold and water vapor in the crawl space. Together all these products will keep the crawl space area dry and healthy!
The foundation walls in John's basement had began to crack and eventually started to bow inward. John had lived in the home for many years and noticed very small cracks before but never thought these small, tiny cracks would ever cause much damage to his foundation. Overtime, these cracks became a thought in the back of his mind until one day he noticed a large crack on the outside of his home. Venturing downstairs, he noticed those small cracks were now large, since he now had a bowing foundation
Water is the last thing Jack was expecting to see when venturing downstairs to his partially finished basement one afternoon. He had just moved in a few months ago and the home had never experienced water before. Jack remembered that when his brothers basement flooded, called Quality 1st Basements and so that is exactly what Jack did. Within a few days, System Design Specialist, Jay Hugee, was out to meet with Jack and inspect the water issues. He recommended WaterGaurd and a TripleSafe Sump pump to keep the basement dry, a Sedona Dehumidifier to prevent musty odors and filter cleaner air and BrightWall Panels to give the basement a more finished look.
Quality 1st Foreman, Juan Garcia and his team completely transformed the wet and smelly basement into a dry and clean space that could now be used as an extra hangout space for his family and their friends.
It was the end of spring and summer was approaching. Kim's husband had been outside one afternoon checking the pool to make sure no damage was done over the winter since he was considering opening the pool early. When he removed the pool cover he noticed that he had two large slabs that had settled around the stairs. It not only created a gap but a big trip hazard. Knowing Kim would probably trip he googled tripping hazard removal and discovered an ad for Quality 1st Basements. Giving the number to Kim, she decdied to call the next day for a free estimate.
Concrete Repair Specialist, Andy Gagliardi did a full inspection of the pool area to make sure those slabs were the only ones experiencing settlement. The first slab was settled about an inch or so but the second slab had settled almost 4 inches. Andy told Kim and her husband that the best way to remove the tripping hazard would be inject PolyLevel underneath the slabs. PolyLevel is a foam that once underneath, expands and hardens raising the slab back to level. Not only is it cost efficient but the foam would permanently stabilize the slabs to prevent further settlement.
Our team came in raised the slabs back to their original level and within 15 minutes after the crew was done, Kim's husband was able to remove the pool cover and begin cleaning their pool.
Jay contacted Quality 1st Basements after a snow storm hit New Jersey dropping almost a foot and a half of snow which caused water in his basement. When the snow started to melt, the water slowly started to seep through the foundation walls causing large puddles in three corners of his basement. Jay noticed the basement had become very damp and a musty odor had formed which had never been there before. Before this storm Jay was considering finishing his basement but now with these water issues he wanted to make sure this would never happen again. Since Jay was interested in finishing his basement Quality 1st sent System Design Specialist, Laura out to inspect the water issues to design a solution and sit down with Jay to discuss what exactly they wish to accomplish in their basement as far as finishing it.
Quality 1st Foreman Victor Leon and his team installed a full perimeter WaterGuard Drainage System and a TripleSafe Sump pump to keep the basement dry, preventing future water leaks and possible flooding. Next the team installed a SaniDry Dehumidifier to circulate dry air throughout the entire space. Next Laura sat with Jay to discuss basement finishing options. Laura went over our different flooring options and how they are all waterproofing and mold resistant. Our ThermalDry flooring options had pegs underneath keeping the flooring tiles up to 10 degrees warmer since it will not lay directly on the cold concrete floor. Like our flooring options, our EverLast Wall Panels are waterproofing and mold resistant as well. These panels have built in insulation to create a more comfortable environment in the basement.
Our team installed ThermalDry® Elite Plank Flooring in Dark Oak, to match the EverLast Wall Panels. Victors team created a small closet to hide the TripleSafe Sump Pump so that it would not take away from the beautiful transformed basement. Now Jay and his family can use their basement to host their friends and family. Jay was amazed with his basement transformation and how just a week ago his basement was a dark and wet, unusable space to a dry and comfortable area to hangout in.
It was one morning after Jane put her kids on the bus when she sat down to drink her morning coffee and noticed sections of her front porch had begun to sink and settle. Worried that the porch would continue to sink, Jane contacted Quality 1st Basements for a free estimate to have one of our Concrete Repair Specialists out to inspect the concrete settlement and offer a permanent solution. Customer Service Representative, Christine, set an appointment for Jane to meet with Jeff. She informed Jane that a packet would be set to her home with customer reviews from her local area, a profile of Jeff so she could learn a little bit more about him and also know what he looks like. Christine also sent Jane our Concrete Lifting & Leveling book that had everything she needed to know about why her porch was sinking and how Quality 1st could help.
At the time of the inspection, Jeff measured the settlement of the porch to be roughly 2 inches in one section and a little over 3 in another. He explained that because concrete is heavy and sometimes the soil underneath can no longer support the weight of the slab that the slab sinks. He then recommend PolyLevel, a polyurethane foam that is injected through penny-size holes, down underneath the slab. The foam then expands, raising the slab back to level. Once the slab is at its original state the foam begins to harden to permanently stabilize the slab. Jane was amazed that within 15 minutes of Foreman Arturo raising the porch, she was able to not only stand on it but put all her furniture back.
After just 2 straight days of rain, Robert's basement in his Readington, NJ home flooded with almost an inch of water. In all the years hes lived there, he never once had signs of water issues and so he wanted someone out right away for a solution.
He contacted the waterproofing experts of Hunterdon County. Our Customer Service Representative, Keashan, was able to send System Design Specialist, Mike D. out to inspect the basement and design a specific solution for this basements water concerns.
At the time of the inspection, Mike did a full walk through of the entire basement area and realized right away that the water was coming in from the left corner of the basement. The water was seeping in from the wall as well as the floor. Mike explained to Robert that our team would install a full perimeter waterproofing system consisting of a WaterGuard Drainage system that would collect the water seeping in from the wall or floor and direct it over the the TripleSafe Sump pump that is installed in the deepest part of the basement. Both products together would not only prevent future leaks and flooding from ever occurring but also keep the basement healthy since it would prevent moisture and mold from forming.
On the day of the installation Wilver took his team and did a walk through to explain what exactly was being installed and to make sure the entire area was cleaned out for installation. Once the area was prepped for the crew, Wilver introduced his team to Robert and finalized with him exactly what they were accomplishing today.
When the job was completed Wilver and Robert walked through the entire basement to show him exactly what they did and gave him a short lesson on the Sump pump. Right away Robert noticed how clean his basement was after the team was working all down with multiple tools and machines. He thanks the team for the amazing work done and for making his basement spotless.
Mary sent her husband out one afternoon to rake leaves in the front of their Readington, NJ home. As soon as he began raking the leaves off the sidewalk, he noticed two large slabs in front of their driveway had settled causing a huge trip hazard.
When Mary's husband called her out to look at the settlement she noticed that her sidewalk looked exactly like the picture on a concrete lifting and leveling truck she saw in her neighborhood not to long ago. Mary decided to give her neighbor a call to find out who came out to call for an estimate. The neighbor referred her to Quality 1st Basements, so Mary called to schedule her appointment.
Concrete Repair Specialist, Jeff P. did a full inspection of their sidewalks and recommended PolyLevel would be the perfect solution. Jeff explained that PolyLevel is a foam that is injected underneath the slab to raise it back to its original state. PolyLevel expands until the slab is elevated, once elevated, it hardens to permanently stabilize the slab to prevent further settlement.
Mary and her husband were amazed at how quickly the team was able to lift both slabs back to level and withing 15 minutes of completion Mary's husband could drive his car over the slab to leave his driveway.
John from Flemington, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basements after noticing water in his basement.

Christine was able to schedule his free estimate appointment with System Design Specialist, Chris Bowe. Within a few short days Chris was in the home, doing a full inspection of the basement to design a solution that best fit the problems John was experiencing in his basement.
Chris Recommended a full waterproofing system to keep the basement dry and prevent any future water leaks or flooding that could cause damage to the partially finished area of the basement. With a full WaterGuard system and a TripleSafe Sump Pump installed the basement would now stay dry during any rain storm. The team also installed a SaniDry Dehumidifier to eliminate damp, musty odors. Quality 1st Basements was able to put John at ease now that he no longer has to worry about his basement. He can now have piece of mind that his family can enjoy all the perks of having the extra space in his home.
The concrete slabs around Virginia's pool area were sinking and settling which caused multiple tripping hazards. Fearing one of her small children would trip and fall into the pool, she decided to search for a solution. Looking to Google for a reliable company, she came across Quality 1st Basements, the local experts in sinking and settling concrete. Customer Service Representative, Kelly, asked a few short questions to make sure she fully understood the concrete concerns Virginia was having and was able to schedule the soonest available appointment with Concrete Repair specialist, Andy G.
Andy G. did a full inspection of the pool area and noticed a total of 8 sinking slabs that had settled roughly an inch to two inches. He assured Virginia that PolyLevel foam would be the perfect solution since it could raise the existing slab back to level instead of removing and replacing the concrete. The foam is injected underneath the slab filling the void underneath which caused the settling. The foam expands lifting the concrete then hardens to permanently stabilize it. The Quality 1st crew was able to lift and level the entire pool area and within 15 minutes of the team cleaning up, the family was able to use the pool.
Quality 1st Basements received a call one day from Jean H. in Annandale, NJ. When speaking with our customer service representative, Kelly, she stated that her crawl space hadn't been checked on in over 10 years. Crawling inside our System Design Specialist, Laszlo Lenkey, noticed possible mold all over the walls along with efflorescence. There was about 3 inches of water and signs that pests had been living in there for quite some time. The musty odor was a sign of high humidity and Laszlo also noticed moisture on the pipes as well. Once he completed the inspection, Laszlo sat down with Jean to discuss the cause and of course, the solution. Lazlo explained that over time when the crawl space vents are not tightly sealed, water, pests and humidity find their way into the crawl space.
Remember most crawl spaces have dirt floors like Jeans and so the earth contributes a lot of water vapor into the crawl space air. The groundwater seeps and leaks into the crawl space and creates puddles that slowly over time evaporate upward into the house. This means that the nasty air that was inside Jeans crawl space was now the air she was breathing in her home. Now all the condensation in her crawl space made everything damp and wet which resulted in the rooting of her wood. This caused sagging floors because her crawl space beams were no longer strong enough to hold the structure. Overall this crawl space need some major TLC! Laszlo recommended a full encapsulation system along with our Heavy-Duty SmartJack Sytem.
Quality 1st Basements installed our SmartJack System which consisted of 8 total SmarkJacks. SmartJacks are used to stabilize and level the girders and floor joists in the crawl space. Once installed, the beams are stabilized and level immediately. Next CleanSpace, our moisture vapor barrier liner is installed on the walls and floor to block future water leaks and moisture that could cause rooting or mold growth This liner is a strong bright white liner making the space look brighter and clean. Our WaterGuard drainage system was installed along with our specially designed Crawl Space Sump pump known as SmartSump pump. Both together to collect the water seepage and direct it straight to the sump pump to be removed from the crawl space, keeping it dry and therefore healthy! Laszlo also recommend our Sedona Dehumidifier to prevent moisture and mold from growing, creating cleaner air inside the crawl space. Lastly the crawl space vents were tightly sealed to prevent pests, humidity and cold drafty air from traveling inside. Jean was amazed at the transformation of her crawl space and has now recommended Quality 1st Basements to her grandchildren with homes!
Jake from Annandale, NJ had multiple signs that his foundation was settling. He noticed wall cracks in the exterior brick and changes in the way the doors and windows of his home opened and closed. Down in his basement his foundation walls had stair-step cracks with one specific wall starting to bow inward. Looking for a local Foundation Specialist to save his investment and give him peace of mind again, he contacted Quality 1st Basements. Senior Design Specialist, Ken Peare went out to meet with Jake, run a full inspection of his foundation and design the best solution possible for what he was experiencing.
Most homeowners don't know too much about foundation settlement and so it's important to us that we educate each homeowner with enough information to understand why they have this issue and why we recommend our solution. Ken explained to Jake that when a house is built compacted soil is then back filled around the foundation to fill the hole. That compacted soil is not as strong as the virgin soil that was once there. Over time that soil can no longer hold the weight of the home causing the home to shift and settle. In the process, cracks form, doors stick, walls bow and your foundation is now compromised.
Ken Recommended Push Piers for they stabilize the home's foundation. This solution can also lift the home back towards its original level, closing cracks and improving the operations of the doors and windows. The soil is removed from around the foundations footing, where the pier will be installed. Each Push Pier is hydraulically driven into stable soil. The weight of the home is transferred from the concrete foundation, through the steel bracket and piers, to the deep load- bearing soil. Next the team will attempt to lift the home back towards its original position. Once completed and foundation is stabilized the soil is back filled, the entire system is hidden in the ground and your home is in its new position.

John S., a homeowner in Stanton, NJ had multiple sinking sidewalk slabs located in front of his home and along the side. Being a corner house in a neighborhood that many people, walk and ride their bikes in, John knew this was an accident waiting to happen. Searching for a solution, he came across our sidewalk raising system known as PolyLevel.
PolyLevel, is a polyurethane foam that is waterproof and environmentally friendly. Our team uses special equipment to inject the foam underneath the slab through the small penny- size holes that were drilled in the concrete. The foam expands, raising the concrete back towards its original position. Once leveled, it hardens to stabilize the sidewalk and prevent future settlement. The installation process is quick, clean and in just 15 minutes the sidewalk could be used again.
John knew this was exactly what he was looking for when it came to a solution and so he met with our Concrete Repair Specialist, Jeff P. Jeff showed John a demo of the installation as well as before and afters of other sidewalks and driveways we raised. Quality 1st Basements was able to raise each sidewalk slab back towards its original position. John was amazed watching the installation first hand and was thrilled to see how clean the area was left once completed. No disruption, or disturbance during the installation process not only made John happy but his neighbors happy as well.
We were contacted by a couple who just recently bought their first home. The crawl space needed a lot of work. There were major signs of mold and water seepage. The crawl space vents were open, allowing moisture, humidity and pests inside. Overall the space was very unhealthy and the musty odor coming from the crawl space was making its way up through the air vents into the home. The couple knew that the concerns they had would only grow if they waited longer to repair their crawl space so they called Quality 1st Basements for a free estimate.
System Design Specialist, Javier, went out to meet with the homeowners and design a solution that best fit their crawl space needs. Javier recommended a full perimeter waterproofing system to keep the crawl space dry. He also suggested closing the crawl space vents to seal the space off from the outside environment. For this crawl space, preventing water and moisture was a top priority and so Javier also recommended our Moisture Vapor Barrier known as CleanSpace.
Our team led by Mario, installed our SmartPipe french drainage system! This is the first custom-engineered french drainage system specifically designed for the crawl space. There are holes on the top and front to allow water seepage to be captured from the soil and surface of the crawl space. The SmartPipe is connected to our one-of-a-kind SmartSump Pump. This system will provide the ultimate protection when it comes to any crawl space. The pump sits inside a liner for protection to prevent failure and malfunction. Our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier is then installed on the floor and walls to block moisture and mold growth.
Quality 1st Basements with help from our amazing team was able to provide more then just a solution for this couple. We provided them with peace of mind that they no longer had to worry about their crawl space every time it rained for their investment was now protected.
Quality 1st Basements sent Concrete Repair Specialist, Andy Gagliardi, out to inspect the concrete area around a pool in Sergeantsville, NJ. The homeowner noticed that when he went to remove the pool cover to begin cleaning it for the up coming season, multiple concrete slabs had settled. His pool was now surrounded by sinking and settling concrete slabs. His diving board was now uneven and the slide in the deep end was slanted. Andy measured roughly 2 to 6 inches of settlement and recommended PolyLevel has the ultimate solution.
Our Team came out and did a full walk through of the entire pool area to make sure it was clear of planters, furniture and pool toys. Our team begins by drilling small penny-size holes into the concrete slabs. Using special equipment, polyurethane foam, known as PolyLevel is injected underneath. The foam expands, filling any voids and begins to lift the slab. Once at its desired level, the foam hardens to permanently stabilize and prevent future settlement.
For years John has had issues with his crawl space. He had an existing pump that would fail from time to time where he would purchase parts and fix himself. After a recent storm we had with over 5 inches of rain lasting 3 days, his crawl space flooded. John finally gave up on his existing system and decided to get it replaced. He contacted Quality 1st Basements and booked his free inspection.
Senior Design Specialist, Jeff Nero, recommended our SmartSump Pump System to provide the ultimate protection when it came to ground seepage or water seepage from the foundation walls. He also recommended closing all crawl space vents to seal off water, moisture and humidity from getting inside.

A homeowner in Hunterdon, NJ noticed there was a gap in between their home and shed. They didn't know what the problem was, so they contacted Quality 1st Basements Systems for a solution. Our Operations Manager, Jack, came out and inspected the couple's shed. He saw that the shed was attached to the house, so he looked at the gap and followed to where it leads on the ground, revealing uneven slabs.

Once the void has been filled, the expansion of the polyurethane allowed the slab to be lifted to its desired level. Once everything was done, the shed was lifted back to its original level, making the couple completely satisfied.

Quality 1st Basement Systems received a phone call from a homeowner in Alexandria, NJ. The homeowner experienced numerous issues occurring around their home including their drywall cracking, basement walls bowing inwards, and doors and windows not fitting into their frames. We sent our System Design Specialist, Greg Louis, to go and inspect the home and provide a quote for the homeowner.
Greg arrived at the home, on time, and inspected the issues that were occurring around the home. He could easily conclude that the home was undergoing serious foundation issues, and needed a durable and permeant solution. Foundation failure is created when the soil around the home is deeply affected.

Quality 1st Basement Systems received a phone call from a homeowner in Little York, NJ about a foundation problem. The homeowner discovered their basement walls bowing inwards and developing horizontal cracks. We had our System Design Specialist, Anthony G., inspect the home and provide a quote for the homeowner.
Anthony arrived at the home, on time, and provided a full inspection of the basement walls. Bowing walls are a result of foundation failure, which is caused by weak soil. In this case, when soil becomes soft, it expands and pushed up against your home's foundation causing it to bow inwards. If this problem was ignored, then the cracks would grow and seriously affect the interior of the home. Anthony suggested a wall reinforcement system would be the perfect solution.
The Carbon Armor Straps are designed to stabilize bowing basement walls. The system is 10x stronger than steel and is also flexible, preventing the cracks from growing. It's the perfect solution for the beginning stages of foundation failure.
