Along with general foundation problems we also repair sunken concrete slabs using PolyLEVEL.

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!
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.

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.

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.

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.

A homeowner in Matawan, New Jersey noticed their concrete patio was sinking and becoming unlevel. This can happen because of soil erosion under the concrete slab. As water runs down through the cracks and joints in the slab, it washes the soil out as it passes through. This creates voids and causes the concrete to shift and settle. Unlevel concrete is dangerous because it poses a tripping hazard to friends and family.
The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Chris Bowe, was able to provide an inspection and help them find a plan. Chris noticed the walkway was very unlevel and knew the problem would get worse if unrepaired. He suggested they use polyurethane foam to be injected into the concrete to lift and level it.
Our foreman used the PolyLevel Injection System to be injected into the concrete slab. This is done by drilling tiny holes into the concrete and injecting the polyurethane foam into the voids under the slab. The polyurethane foam has expanding properties that allow for an accurate lift and level.
Once the job was done, the homeowner was pleased with the outcome. The homeowner and their family and friends were able to walk safely onto the surface without worrying about tripping.
A Matawan, NJ homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after discovering their concrete porch was sinking two inches. This caused their steps and porch to become uneven and potentially cause tripping hazards. After speaking with our customer service representative, the homeowner scheduled an appointment with our System Design Specialist, Dylan McDonald.
After Dylan arrived at the home, on time, he proceeded to fully inspect the concrete porch. Afterward, Dylan presented his findings to the homeowner and recommended our crew could use the Polylevel Injection method to repair the porch. The homeowner agreed and scheduled another appointment for the repair.
Within the next few days, our crew arrived at the home and repaired the porch. First, our crew drilled small, penny-like holes into the uneven concrete slabs. Next, they used specially designed equipment to inject small structural graded polymers into the void between the soil and slab. Once the void has been filled, the polymers expand and raise the slab to the desired height. This process is repeated until the entire porch is repaired.
After the repair, the porch was glowing with its new look! The homeowner was very satisfied with the installation and was also happy to see their porch looking as good as new.
A homeowner in Matawan, New Jersey was looking to prevent water seepage in their basement. Water can get into the basement from the soil around the foundation. Over time, this soil becomes saturated during heavy rainfall, creating hydrostatic pressure which pushes water in through the walls. A wet basement can have many negative effects such as pests, dust mites, increased energy bills, and even mold growth.
The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Steve Ventriglio, was able to provide an inspection and help them find a solution. Upon his inspection, Steve made the suggestion that they install a new sump pump system, a French drain system, and a wall vapor barrier to keep moisture out.
Our foreman, Mario Barron, arrived at the site and installed the SuperSump Classic which will effectively pump water out of the basement. This sump pump has an airtight enclosed lid that will prevent water vapor from getting into the basement air. Then, the foreman installed the WaterGuard Drain System which sits on top of the foundation to be kept out of the mud zone. Then, the foreman installed the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System which keeps moisture out for the basement and will stay dry.
When the job was complete, the homeowner was pleased with the outcome. They had peace of mind to know that their basement would be protected from water damage.

After our crew finished the repair, the homeowner was very happy to see their sidewalk fully set and ready for action!
