Job Stories From Matawan, NJ
Crawl Space Moisture and Critters Sealed Out in Matawan, NJ

An exterminator serviced a home in Matawan, NJ.  While doing his job in the crawl space, he informed the homeowner that her crawl space was very damp and should be looked at.  The customer, Sandra B., was concerned about the problems that can come with wetness, like wood rot and mold.  She scheduled an appointment to have waterproofing specialist John Schweitzer inspect the problem area and develop a plan for resolving the wetness beneath the home.

The remediation process of waterproofing the crawl space would include the installation of SmartPipe drainage pipe around the perimeter, designed to collect water from foundation walls and floors of dirt crawl spaces. CleanSpace Drainage Matting on the floor would work to eliminate sitting water by directing it to the drainage system. The SmartSump would then pump the water out and away from the home and disperse it onto the lawn through the LawnScape discharge outlet.  Also, an IceGuard along the discharge route would prevent flooding if ice begins to block the way.

Next, John suggested sealing off the vents with vent covers, installing a new, airtight Everlast Door, and installing a SaniDry CX dehumidification system, all working together to reduce the moisture in the crawl space.  The installation of SilverGlo Insulation Panels would result in additional water vapor protection while boosting energy efficiency as the panels reflect heat back into the crawl space. A CleanSpace liner would isolate the home from the earth, providing yet another barrier to moisture.

With the project completed, Sandra B. would not only have a drier crawl space but would also experience a warmer main level of her home with energy-cost savings.  Likewise, this sealing up of the space beneath the home would prevent critters from finding an easy way in.  No doubt Sandra B. was happy to have Quality 1st Basement Systems give her greater peace of mind by fixing her crawl space! 

Quality 1st Saves Foundation with Wall Anchors in Matawan, NJ

Johnson Family contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems about foundation problems they noticed in the basement of their home. System Design Specialist, Mike Jersey, drove to Matawan to meet with family, inspect the cracks in the foundation, and offer the best solution to the problem.

When Mike did his walk through he noticed effervescence on the walls indicating that this basement had water seeping through cracks in the walls. Mike recommended waterproofing to keep the basement dry and so prevent future damage to the walls. He also recommended a dehumidifier to allow proper circulation of dry air in the basement. One of the walls in the basement was bowing in while others had a few staircase and vertical cracks, both are signs of settlement. When the soil underneath eh home can no longer handle the weight of the foundation the home starts to settle causing the walls to separate creating cracks. When the soil starts to push against the home, it causes the walls to bow inward and so it’s important to have the problem fixed before it gets worse.

Quality 1st Foreman, Melvin Cardoza and his crew installed WaterGuard and a SuperSump Pump to keep the basement dry. Both work together to collect the water and direct it from the drainage system to the sump pump which then pumps the water out and as far as 15 or 20 away from the home. CleanSpace was installed to the walls of the basement to protect against moisture and humidity. Wall Anchors were installed to permanently stabilize the walls and prevent further movement. These Wall Anchors are installed into the ground in strong soil to pull the wall back into place. By securing the wall it will prevent further inward movement and allow the foundation to return to its original state over time

Quality 1st Basement Systems was able to identify the water problem that the homeowner was unaware of. We were able to provide a permanent solution and make the home safe for the family.  

Permanent Waterproof Basement Solution in Matawan, NJ

A Matawan homeowner was having trouble with water seeping in through the walls of their unfinished basement. Their existing pump was not properly pumping water out of the basement and after 15 failures they contacted the experts. After exploring the website and reading the reviews, the homeowner decided to call Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate. 

System Design Specialist, Kenny Tramultola, noticed efflorescence on the corners of the wall where the water had been seeping through. The basement overall was very damp and cold, creating an uncomfortable environment. Kenny recommended replacing the failing sump pump with a TripleSafe Sump Pump System along with WaterGuard French Drain System to be installed. The TripleSafe Sump Pump is powerful pump that will discharge 11,500 gallons of water at its full performance with the battery backup on. The pump features a WaterWatch Alarm that alerts the homeowner if water has risen to the point where the SumpPump will be turned on, this will give the homeowner a peace of mind. This complete Waterproofing System will keep the basement completely dry. The Quality 1st Basement crew was able to resolve this homeowners leaking basement making them a  satisfied customer.

Quality 1st Raises Concrete Slabs For Local Matawan, NJ Veteran

Through the A Hero Lives Here Program, Quality 1st was able to provide a Local Matawan Veteran with a solution for their sinking concrete they were experiencing around their pool area. System Design Specialist, Mike Bonfante, had installed an American Flag in the backyard of the Veterans home in honor of the program. After installing the flag, the homeowner addressed his concerns to Mike and asked if he would take a look at his pool area. Mike noticed several sinking slabs around the steps and in the far end of pool. He too was concerned about the tripping hazards that had formed from the settlement over time. Mike measured about 2 to 4 inches of settlement and recommended PolyLevel for the solution. 

The crew drilled small, penny- size holes into each sinking slab. PolyLevel, is injected underneath, which expands and hardens lifting the slab back to its original state. The crew was able to lift and level each sinking slab and remove every tripping hazard from the pool area. The Veteran was thrilled that not only he was able to receive a Flag Pole from Quality 1st Basement Systems but also a solution to his sinking concrete issues he was experiencing. 

Bowing Walls Repaired in Matawan, NJ

Homeowners living in Matawan, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems in regards to their failing foundation walls. The walls began to bow inward, and horizontal cracks began to form. The homeowner became very concerned that it would quickly progress causing serious harm to the rest of the foundation of the home. They decided to call Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule an appointment to have System Design Specialist, Jeff Nero, out to inspect the foundation and provide a solution. 

Jeff explained to the homeowners that bowing walls are pushed inward from either hydrostatic pressure or expansive soil. He informed the homeowners that the reason for their foundation failure was hydrostatic pressure since the common sign is horizontal cracking along the foundation wall. He recommended a PowerBrace Foundation Wall Repair System. The PowerBrace is a steel beam that is secured to the joists above the wall with a steel bracket. The beams are easily adjustable to allow tightening in attempt to move the wall back to its original position. The system is installed quickly with minimal disruption to the basement space. The PowerBrace Wall Repair System is the ideal way to stabilize any failing foundation walls that are bowing or tilting inwards.  

With the help of Jeff, the crew was able to install the Wall Repair System and permanently stabilize the foundation walls. Now the homes foundation is protected against future wall failure giving the homeowners peace of mind. The homeowners were so satisfied with their experience, they have refereed Quality 1st Basement Systems to three of their neighbors. 

 

 

Foundation in Matawan Home Stabilized

Homeowners in Matawan, NJ were experiencing cracks on the inside of the garage and the exterior walls which was causing the foundation to shift. Foundation shifting and settling is caused by the soil either shrinking, softening, or loosening below the home's foundation. The soil in the foundation was so weak that it was not able to support the foundation of the house, therefore, shifting the house and causing cracks in the walls. Fixing the foundation was a priority, as it would cause larger damage if not attended to, causing the resale value of the home to drop. The Homeowner decided to give Quality 1st a call for a FREE evaluation of the foundation issue.  

The Quality 1st Basements crew went to work as soon as they arrived. Knowing the foundation was in bad condition, they decided to install 9 Push Piers underneath the foundation after excavating 5 feet underneath the soil & clay. Push Piers are driven deep into the soil to ensure stability. A heavy-duty steel bracket is installed below and against the foundation’s footing, and then steel pier sections are hydraulically pushed through the bracket to the bedrock. This is the best foundation repair option available when soil conditions are unknown, providing a permanent solution for your settlement issues. This option was fast and effective, leaving the homeowner worry free from and future foundation settlement.
