Robin in North Brunswick knew there was a water problem in her basement, but when she noticed slight vertical cracks on the wall she was very worried. A friend referred her to Quality 1st Basement Systems and Waterproofing specialist Vaughn Shaw went out to evaluate the problem. The homeowner expressed her great concern over the damage the water was doing to her home, but Vaughn was able to ease her worries by letting her know what could be done to fix the problem.
Wilver and the Quality 1st Basement System crew installed a WaterGuard System and SuperSump Sump Pump to provide proper water drainage in the basement and an IceGuard discharge line. IceGuard is specially designed to function in all kinds of weather.
Robin was grateful her basement was now dry and she could use it for storage without worrying her possessions would be damaged. Quality 1st Basement Systems was glad to be there when needed and work hard on every job to insure customer satisfaction.
A homeowner in Piscataway was experiencing foundation problems. She contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to get a free estimate on foundation repair. Barbara S. had foundation cracks and water entering through her basement walls making the walls wet and damp. The water leaking into the basement was causing mold problems as well. A System Design Specialist determined that ground water seepage was the cause of water in the basement
Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a full perimeter basement waterproofing system WaterGuard is the top of the line system for basement waterproofing. WaterGuard is a piping system designed to waterproof basements that is efficient, long-lasting, and really works! The Quality 1st System Design Specialist also recommended the TripleSafe Sump Pump to work in conjunction with the WaterGuard system which drains the leaking water to the TripleSafe pump. TripleSafe is a battery back-up sump pump that will continue to run even if the power goes out! Quality 1st sealed the wall cracks and installed CleanSpace wall liners which cover the basement walls to stop the water from entering the basement through the walls.
Barbara and her family are now able to enjoy a clean and dry basement space. Because Quality 1st Basement Systems solved the basement flooding problem, the family no longer has humidity and water in the basement which means the space is no longer a healthy habitat for mold. It is now a healthy habitat for this Piscataway family!
After moving into a new home, Curtis, from Perth Amboy, wanted to turn his basement into a man cave. His only problem was that the basement was wet and unusable. Could Quality 1st Basement Systems help?
Of course! System Design Specialist and expert basement waterproofer, Vaughn Shaw, went out to evaluate the home. Vaughn explained to the homeowner how water was entering the basement and how installing the WaterGuard Drainage System along the perimeter of the room and TrenchDrain by the back door would permanently remove the water. A SuperSump Sump Pump with an Ultra Sump Battery Back-up would ensure the system continues to operate even during power outages. Since New Jersey winters could get very cold, Vaughn suggested an IceGuard Discharge Line. IceGuard keeps the system working even through ice and snow.
Quality 1st Basement Systems Senior Foreman, Juan Garcia, brought the crew out on schedule and they went right to work. Curtis was impressed with the professional and efficient crew and is very happy to finally have a dry basement. Now he’s working on that man cave and telling everyone what a great job Quality 1st Basement Systems did for him.
A North Brunswick homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after he saw our PolyLEVEL Concrete Leveling trucks at his neighbors. Until then, he did not have a solution for repairing his driveway.
The PolyLEVEL system is the best concrete leveling option on the market. It is relatively non-invasive, economically sensible, and quick! Using high-density polymers to raise the slab back to the original levels, our PolyLEVEL Specialist was able to raise this North Brunswick driveway back to its original levels. Any trip hazards were removed, along with issues that could arise with uneven concrete when parking the car.
Lorraine M. had a 100 year old store in New Brunswick, NJ. She hired a home inspector to evaluate the foundation and it was determined that the foundation needed more support to ensure greater stability. On Lorraine’s behalf, the inspector contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to obtain a free estimate. After completing a thorough inspection, foundation specialist Kenny Tramutola determined that a series of SmartJacks and supplemental wood beams would be the appropriate solution.
Wilver Cardoza and his crew arrived to install the necessary additional support for the aging structure. Holes were excavated for each SmartJack being installed. The holes were filled with stone and covered with a concrete base. The SmartJacks were then cut to size, placed where deemed necessary according to the plan developed during the inspection and estimate, and tightened into place. Supplemental wood support beams were installed for added support.
The steel supports immediately stabilized the century-old structure and permanently protected the building from further movement. This solution was backed by a warranty that provided Lorraine M. with peace of mind.
Homeowner Kerry was very pleased with the livable space she had in her basement. Her investment afforded her family a nicely-carpeted area to watch television and for the children to play as well as provide some additional storage space. What Kerry wasn’t aware of was the way that water intrusion could ruin any family’s entertainment zone, even with an existing sump pump and portable dehumidifier.
Kerry expressed her distress and was immediately referred to Quality 1st Basement Systems by a customer who received great satisfaction from work done by them in the past. Quality 1st sent a waterproofing specialist out to Cranbury, NJ to inspect Kerry’s basement and design a solution.
Project Manager Jesus Alvarez-Sanchez headed a crew to install the WaterGuard System along basement walls to direct any water seepage to the sump pump for discharge. Additional protection included a SaniDry XP Air System, engineered to both dry and filter the air. This powerful system was installed to allow the collected water to drain directly to the sump pump pit, leaving Kerry to never need to empty a dehumidifier catch basin bin again! Kerry was thereafter assured of a continued dry basement where her family could once again enjoy the space!
After heavy rains, Chip S. from Edison, NJ noticed that water was getting into his crawl space. Additionally, some of the wetness was making its way into the adjacent basement, damaging the sheetrock wall. Chip saw an ad in the Smart Shopper Magazine and decided to give Quality 1st Basement Systems a call. An appointment was scheduled to have Waterproofing Specialist Dan McNally out to inspect the problem areas and develop a plan for resolving the wetness. Chip approved of the plan.
Project Manager Jesus Alvarez-Sanchez brought his crew to Chip’s property and began the remediation process of waterproofing the crawl space. CleanSpace Drainage Matting was installed on the floor of the crawl space to direct any water to a drainage system. Additionally, a CleanSpace liner was installed to further prevent wetness from making its way into the crawl space and to complete the encapsulation. Chris also selected to have SilverGlo Crawl Space Wall Insulation Panels installed. These energy efficient panels are designed to keep the cold out and the heat in.
By the end of the project, Chip S. found a drier, warmer, brighter crawl space. He would have no more worries of water seeping into the basement through the common wall, now boasting the newly-installed ZenWall which provides a cleaner, brighter appearance and additional insulation. Chip S. became a satisfied customer.
Greg D. from East Brunswick was visiting a local Home and Flower Show. He stopped at the booth for Quality 1st Basement Systems to find a solution to the sinking concrete slabs around his pool and on his walkway. He scheduled an appointment to have the areas in need of lifting inspected by a Quality 1st PolyLEVEL specialist and to be provided with a free estimate.
Greg D. liked what was proposed. The PolyLEVEL process utilizes a lightweight waterproof material injected beneath the slabs to lift them and prevent wash out. Additionally, there is a minimal cure time (of approximately 15 minutes) unlike mudjacking, which could take a few days. The process is also quicker and less costly than replacing the sinking slabs.
Certified PolyLEVEL specialist Arturo Jacuinde arrived on the scheduled date to complete the repairs. Once complete, Greg D. had a level walkway and pool patio area. He no longer had to worry about any tripping hazards from sinking slabs!
A customer in Monroe Township was only in her house a few years, but over that time she noticed that the slabs in her driveway were sinking more and more. She searched the internet for help. When she came across Quality 1st Basement Systems, she found that she could get a free inspection and estimate for the repairs. At the scheduled appointment when she met specialist Maurice Robinson, she learned a lot more.
Maurice explained how the PolyLEVEL process works and how it is a cost-effective solution to the problems with her concrete driveway slabs. The PolyLEVEL process begins with a few small holes drilled in the concrete slabs. A lightweight waterproof material is then injected beneath the slabs to lift them and prevent future wash out. After only about 15 minutes of cure time, the customer would be able to drive on her driveway! (If she had someone else fix her driveway by mudjacking, she would have to wait a few days.) The PolyLEVEL process is also quicker and less costly than replacing the sinking slabs.
The customer decided that Quality 1st Basement Systems had the best solution, and after the repairs, she was able to feel relief that the sinking slabs were stabilized.
A couple from Old Bridge Township were visiting a local Golf Show when they came across the Quality 1st Basement Systems’ booth. Recognizing that they were experiencing some of the waterproofing and foundation problems handled by Quality 1st, they followed up afterward by calling for a free estimate.
Basement Design Specialist Kenny Tramutola completed a thorough inspection of the basement. He found signs of water intrusion and observed that the horizontal crack and bowing wall needed attention. First, Kenny proposed installation of a waterproofing system which included a full perimeter WaterGuard, a TripleSump sump pump, an IceGuard, a LawnScape Outlet, and BrightWall Paneling. Water seepage through the basement walls would move to the WaterGuard and be directed to the sump pump system. The TripleSump 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 TripleSafe would pump water out of the basement and would be prevented from causing a flood in winter months (if the discharge line freezes) by inclusion of an IceGuard. The LawnScape Outlet would help disperse the drainage on the lawn. Lastly, the BrightWall Panels would brighten up the basement area while providing a barrier to water vapor.
Additionally, Kenny needed to address the issue of the cracked and bowing wall. He proposed the low-profile design CarbonArmor System (which is stronger than concrete and is specifically designed for basement walls) in conjunction with ArmorLock Anchorage System to stop inward movement of the wall.
Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to install these two systems to alleviate the Old Bridge couple’s concerns about water in the basement and a failing foundation wall. The efficient waterproofing system would prevent seepage from damaging the basement space by directing it out of the home and the revolutionary wall straps and anchoring would provide a secure, stable foundation. The couple could breathe a sigh of relief now that their basement and foundation worries were resolved.
Rich H. in Old Bridge Township, NJ was preparing his pool for the upcoming swim season. His pool company discussed the sinking concrete slabs around the pool that were a tripping hazard and suggested that the homeowner contact Quality 1st Basement Systems to help with repairs.
A PolyLEVEL professional met with Rich to inspect the pool area and to explain the PolyLEVEL process. He described how structural grade polymers are injected beneath the slabs through small holes to lift and stabilize them. The material, less porous than concrete, would not wash out or deteriorate. Additionally, PolyLEVEL cures within 15 minutes so there would be no extended wait to walk in the area.
Rich H. was thankful for the referral from his pool company; he knew they sent him to the best professionals to fix the sinking slabs. Quality 1st Basement Systems is pleased to have removed the tripping hazard for the homeowner, all in time to begin the summer swim festivities!
Homeowner Fran was having water intrude in her basement, some of which was coming in under the front stairs. Faced with this unsettling situation, she shared her concern with a friend. Lucky for Fran, her friend had already had affordable and effective waterproofing work done in her home, and thus, she recommended Fran contact Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate to remedy her problem.
Basement waterproofing specialist Ken Peare visited Fran in Carteret, ready to tackle the problem she was having with water in the basement. After a thorough inspection and discussion with Fran, Ken proposed a solution that would alleviate Fran’s problems. He suggested the installation of a SuperSump Sump Pump, an UltraSump Battery Backup System, a WaterGuard System, and an IceGuard Discharge Line System.
The combination SuperSump Sump Pump and UltraSump Battery Backup are designed as a highly efficient system designed to pump 2,220 gallons of water out of the basement per hour as well as protect the home from water backup in the event that there is a power failure or if the main pump is accidentally unplugged. On a fully charged battery, the system can pump over 11,500 gallons of water. An if the discharge line ever freezes in colder weather, the IceGuard will protect the home from water backing up into the basement.
The quality products and installation afforded Fran fewer basement worries after the job was complete, and Fran could thank her friend for recommending Quality 1st Basement Systems, waterproofing experts!
A homeowner in Monmouth Junction became concerned with the dampness in his basement. He noticed the wetness in various places on the cinder block wall. He also noticed damp spots seeping through the finished walls in another section of the basement. He searched the internet to find professional help. Basement waterproofing experts, Quality 1st Basement Systems, were just what he needed to alleviate his worries and the wet spots in his basement. He scheduled a free estimate.
Waterproofing specialist Ken Peare completed a thorough inspection. He proposed the installation of a full perimeter WaterGuard sub-floor drainage system to capture water from the walls and redirect it through channels leading to the sump pump systems. The Ultra Sump and SuperSump sump pumps were added to the proposal. This efficient primary pump and a battery-operated back-up pump (in case of a power outage or if a breaker is tripped) would continually provide protection against flooding in the basement. Also, to prevent a flood in winter months (if the discharge line freezes), Ken included an IceGuard. Lastly, since the homeowner used half of the basement as usable living/entertainment space, Ken proposed restoring the wall with EverLast half wall finished wall restoration treatment. EverLast Wall Panels provide extra insulation and are resistant to water and mold.
This homeowner experienced a reliable solution to his basement water problems once he had the products installed and could experience some relief that water spots on the walls would no longer be a concern. Now he has a smooth and efficient system working to keep his basement dry!
This homeowner noticed one wall in his basement leaked when it rained. After speaking with a Quality 1st Basement Systems representative at the Flower and Garden Show in Edison, he decided to sign up and get a free estimate. System Design Specialist, Kenny Tramutola, went to visit the home in South Bound Brook and inspected the water leaks coming through the wall.
Since the basement was partially finished, he recommended BrightWall, a plastic panel that attaches to the basement wall. It gives the basement a clean finished look because of its bright white coloring. BrightWall will prevent mold growth and rotting while creating a vapor barrier on the walls. Foreman, Jesus Alverez- Sanchez and his crew installed the BrightWall onto the wall where the water had leaked through.
Quality 1st was able to provide a permanent solution for the basement, giving the homeowner reassurance that his basement will stay dry even in a heavy rainstorm.
Unfortunately, John M. from South Orange, NJ found his dehumidifier running constantly in his basement. Worse than that was the fact that this ever-running dehumidifier wasn’t doing its job; the constant wet, musty basement smell was creeping upstairs! John wanted a permanent fix for this problem. He happened to find Quality 1st Basement Systems in his internet search and, with nothing to lose, he scheduled an appointment for a free inspection and estimate to find out more about more powerful and energy-efficient dehumidifiers and sump pumps.
After the thorough interior and exterior inspection, Quality 1st Basement System’s waterproofing specialist answered John’s questions and addressed his concerns. He then presented the best solution to meet John’s needs.
Installation of the ultra-efficient SaniDry Basement Air System was proposed to replace John’s dehumidifier that was inefficient and wasting energy. It is designed to remove moisture from the air and blow out a dry air into the space, keeping the humidity levels below 50%, reducing the chance for mold to grow. Additionally, a SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System with its powerful cast-iron pump was proposed for installation as it is capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water out of the basement per hour. A LawnScape Outlet was also recommended, designed to move water from the discharge line out and away from the home, to be discreetly dispersed on the lawn.
Putting an end to dampness and musty smells was just what John had in mind. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed the reliable and efficient systems to alleviate John’s worries about the health of his basement and the rest of his home.
Sam from Harrison called Quality 1st Basement Systems when he noticed two of his basement walls had staircase cracks in them. With the holidays approaching, Sam knew he had to get his foundation repaired right away. Sam knew little about foundations and decided it was best to get a free estimate to find out what was causing the cracks and what the best solution was to prevent future ones.
System Design Specialist, Mike Jersey, did a full inspection of the foundation problems occurring in the Harrison basement and designed a solution. He recommended Push Piers be installed on the outside of the home to help support the walls in the basement. Push Piers are a permanent solution for any foundation issues caused by settlement in weak soil.
Quality 1st Basement Systems was able to help provide a permanent solution to Sam so that he can enjoy the holiday season without a worrying about his home's foundation.
Homeowner Joanne of Parlin was having some water seepage problems in her basement. She contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free inspection and estimate to remedy her problem.
A basement waterproofing design specialist visited Joanne. After a thorough inspection and discussion with the homeowner, a solution designed to meet her needs was proposed. A SuperSump Sump Pump, an UltraSump Battery Backup System, and a full perimeter WaterGuard System would be installed. IceGuards and a LawnScape Outlet would round out the basement water protection.
The combination SuperSump Sump Pump and UltraSump Battery Backup are designed as a highly efficient system designed to pump 2,220 gallons of water out of the basement per hour as well as protect the home from water backup in the event that there is a power failure or if the main pump is accidentally unplugged. On a fully charged battery, the system can pump over 11,500 gallons of water. If the discharge line ever freezes in colder weather, the IceGuard will protect the home from water backing up into the basement. The LawnScape Outlet discreetly disperses discharge water onto the lawn, away from the foundation of the home. CleanSpace walling provided a barrier to water vapor as well as brightened up the basement area.
Thanks to Joanne’s decision to have Quality 1st Basement Systems fix her basement, she no longer has to worry about water when the heavy rains come!
A homeowner in Sayreville, NJ, who was a long-standing basement waterproofing customer of Quality 1st Basement Systems, knew quality work. So, when she noticed a crevice forming between her driveway and foundation as well as cracking and shifting of the basement foundation wall, she didn’t hesitate to seek expert advice. An internet search led her right back to Quality 1st Basement Systems, advertising that they handle “All Things Basementy” including foundation repair.
Quality 1st Basement Systems sent foundation specialist Kenny Tramutola to inspect the failing foundation, address the homeowner’s concerns and questions, and then provide a solution with a free estimate for the repair work. It was deemed that a series of GeoLock Wall Anchors would best provide stabilization of the foundation.
These galvanized steel GeoLock Wall Anchors can be installed with minimal disruption to the lawn while they brace the foundation wall with support from stronger, more stable soil extending just beyond the home. They are designed to prevent further movement of walls that are bowing inward or walls that are tilting at the top or buckling. This solution is a slim-line design, installed as a low-profile cure without taking up space in the basement.
Gloria found the permanent solution she needed with Quality 1st Basement Systems. Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to have restored her home to a safer and more stable condition.
Homeowner living in Woodbridge Township, NJ, contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems in regards to foundation problems they were experiencing. There were cracks forming on the inside foundation walls as well as the outside with two basement walls actually bowing inwards. Bowing walls are big indicators of foundation settlement and if ignored, the home will continue to shift and settle making the home unsafe.
System Design Specialist, Kenny Tramutola drove out to meet with the homeowner and inspect the foundation problems occurring with the home. Upon the inspection, Kenny came across water marks indicating water entry into the basement. Efflorescence was on the walls and it was damp where the floor and the wall met. Kenny recommended the homeowner get a waterproofing system along with GeoLock Wall Anchor and Carbon Armor to support the foundation.
Quality 1st installed WaterGuard and a Sump Pump System in the basement to keep it dry. The WaterGuard is installed out of the mud zone to prevent clogging and collects the water that seeps through the wall and directs it to the sump pump system. The GeoLock Wall Anchors are designed to repair bowing walls and prevent further inward movement. The CarbonArmor is recommended because it will stabilize the walls. The straps will begin to pull the wall back to its original position.
The homeowner was very pleased with the foundation repair work done and relieved that Kenny noticed the water issues into for a quick fix before it caused serious damage.
This East Brunswick, NJ homeowner was experiencing humidity and moisture in the crawl space. They were not sure how to solve the problem, but they knew they needed to find a permanent solution. They did some research on the web and found Quality 1st Basement Systems. They looked at the products and the possible solutions for the problem they were experiencing and decide to call to request an free estimate.
Senior Specialist, Kenneth Peare, was assigned the duty to evaluate the problem, and provide the homeowner with the best solution for their home. When he performed the inside and outside inspection, he found that beside the humidity and moisture, the open vents in the crawl space were allowing rodents in creating a bigger problem in the crawl space. Ken Peare thoroughly explained how Quality 1st would help make this a usable crawl space and recommended the CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System, the Drainage Matting, and the CleanSpace Vent Covers . The Drainage Matting provides a thermal break and allows drainage. The CleanSapce will control moisture and will lower humidity levels, and the Vent Covers will close off outside air. The combination of these products will control the rodent problem. Project manager, Juan Garcia and his crew were out to install the products. They arrived on time and performed an excellent installation.
After the project was completed, the homeowner was very happy to know that the crawl space was finally dry, they would not have to worry about rodents any more, and they would be able to use the crawl space for storage.
Homeowner Michael M. of Woodbridge was having some problems with water seeping into his unfinished basement along the bottom of the concrete walls. He wanted to fix the problem once and for all, to prevent any future water damage. He contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free inspection and estimate to remedy the problem.
Kenny Tramutola, basement waterproofing design specialist, traveled to Michael’s home and completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection of the basement. He discussed his findings with the homeowner, addressed his concerns, and developed a solution designed to meet his needs. A SuperSump Sump Pump working in conjunction with a full perimeter WaterGuard System was installed. IceGuards and a LawnScape Outlet would round out the basement water protection.
The SuperSump Sump Pump is a powerful cast iron pump designed to efficiently move up to 2,220 gallons of water per hour out of the basement. Installed in a sturdy liner on a pump stand, the sump pump will not clog due to sediment intrusion. Additionally, an airtight lid will prevent other debris from getting into the hole and will also help quiet the system. If the discharge line ever freezes in colder weather, the IceGuard will protect the home from water backing up into the basement. The LawnScape Outlets discreetly disperse discharge water onto the lawn, away from the foundation of the home.
Michael was happy to have the solution that would prevent water from pooling up on the basement floor and Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to help alleviate his worries!
A homeowner in Roselle knew she needed professional help with the problems she was having in the basement with water seeping in. She wanted a trusted contractor, one who received great customer reviews, so she checked with Angie’s List. Seeing that Quality 1st Basement Systems was acknowledged with the Super Service Award, she called to schedule a free inspection and estimate as advertised.
Waterproofing specialist Dan McNally met with the distraught homeowner, provided a full interior and exterior inspection of the basement, answered her questions and addressed her concerns. Afterward, Dan developed a solution to meet the homeowner’s needs and provide peace of mind from water in the basement. She decided to have Quality 1st Basement Systems take care of her problem with the installation of a SuperSump. The SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System is designed to provide excellent defense against water intrusion. It includes a powerful and efficient cast iron pump capable of removing 2,220 gallons of water per hour! This homeowner wanted the security of a well-protected basement.
Quality 1st Basement Systems completed the installation and allowed the homeowner to experience some relief. No longer would she have to worry since the SuperSump would direct any water seepage outside the home.
A Homeowner in Monroe Township decided to waterproof their basement after he experienced water seepage after heavy rainfall. This concerned the homeowner as water would damage their personal belongings. He received a Money Mailer envelope and found a Quality 1st Basement System Waterproofing Ad and immediately called for a free estimate.
Wet Basements are caused by Hydro static Pressure. The soil around the foundation becomes soaked with moisture which puts pressure on the foundation. Water then works its way through any cracks or openings in the foundation. When water seeps through the walls and up through the floors, the flooring begins to collect the moisture and unfortunately a musty odor begins to form. This smell and dampness in the basement creates an uncomfortable environment, preventing the homeowners and their family from wanting to use the basement.
System Design Specialist, Mike Jersey, recommended a full Waterproofing System that included a French drainage system called WaterGuard that is installed on the footing of the floor out of the Mud-Zone. The WaterGuard collects the water entering through the wall and directs it towards the TripleSafe Sump Pump. The TripleSafe has three pumps allowing it to pump enough water to fill a full in ground swimming pool in up to three hours. This pump also has a backup battery that will automatically turn on in the chance of a power outage. The homeowner was very pleased with the work done by Quality 1st Basement Systems that they referred Quality 1st to their neighbors who were experiencing similar water problems.
An Edison Homeowner had a difficult time keeping his basement dry every time there was rain. Having water seeping in through the walls was an issue since he knew water could potentially bring mold. The homeowner found a Quality 1st Basement System Waterproofing ad in the Valpak envelope and decided to call.
System Design Specialist, Bob Peters, went out to inspect the basement. Upon inspection, he found the environment to be humid and unpleasant. Bob recommended having the TripleSafe Sump Pump System along with the SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier. The Sump Pump is a powerful pump that can discharge 11,500 on a full charge with its battery backup on. The SaniDry Sedona is a high performance and efficient dehumidifier that eliminates damp, musty odors by drying and filtering air. The best part is once its set up, you don't need to worry about the rest, as it automatically drains and Senses humidity. The basement was now dry and the homeowner was relieved that they no longer had to worry when it rained. Quality 1st Basement System provided this homeowner with a permanent waterproof solution that can keep not only the basement but the belongings down there dry as well.
Edison homeowners contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate on basement waterproofing. The basement walls would get wet every so often when it rained but never a large amount where the basement would flood. One morning, after receiving 10 inches of rain, the homeowners saw standing water in their basement. They were shocked that with all the rain recently that this was the first time they saw visible water. System Design Specialist, Thomas Nehme, recommended a SuperSump Sump Pump System along with a SaniDry Dehumidifier to ultimately waterproof the basement and control the humidity. Thomas reassured the homeowners that their basement would now stay dry no matter how much rained they received and that made them very satisfied.
Woodbridge, NJ Homeowner was looking for quotes on repaving her driveway since it had settled. When asking her neighbors for recommendations, one recommended Quality 1st Basement Systems. They suggested her to call and get a free estimate on lifting and leveling the driveway instead of replacing it. She met with Concrete Repair Specialist, Jeff Pitek, and knew he would have a better solution to her problem.
Jeff recommended PolyLevel, for it would raise and elevate the driveway, without having to remove and replace it. It would save her time and money as well as allowing her to keep her driveway all the same color. Jeff explained that the crew would be able to install the PolyLevel in a small amount of time and 15 minutes after they were finished, she would be able to pull her car back into the driveway. The homeowner was amazed at how leveled her driveway was after the crew finished and was grateful they left no mess behind. Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to have helped another satisfied homeowner.
Homeowner living in Sayreville, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for a concrete lifting & leveling estimate. They noticed their driveway which was once very leveled, had settled over time causing the slabs to become uneven. Water would get trapped in certain parts of the driveway where the slabs settled and tripping hazards formed at the beginning and end of the driveway. Luckily, Customer Service Representative, Keashan, was able to send System Design Specialist, Andy Gagliardi, out to inspect the driveway and provide a solution.
Upon inspection, Andy noticed several slabs had settled, some up to almost 2 inches. He recommended PoyLevel for it would lift and level the the entire driveway, verses replacing the driveway. PolyLevel is a lightweight foam that can be driven over within 15 minutes after installation. The waterproof foam will not wash out beneath the slab and has a lifting force ranging from 2,000 to 4,000 pounds! PolyLevel can remove tripping hazards and is environmentally friendly material that will never rot or deteriorate underground.
Quality 1st Foreman, Arturo, and his crew inspected the entire driveway in preparation for the PolyLevel installation. Once the driveway was clear and ready for installation, the crew began to drill small, penny- size holes into the concrete slab. Using specially designed equipment, the polyurethane foam is injected underneath the slab, which expands and hardens, raising the slab back to desired level.
The crew was able to lift each slab back to level while removing all tripping hazards. The homeowners were amazed at how fast and clean the installation was and very satisfied with how their driveway looked afterwards. Now water nicely flows down their driveway and into the street instead of into puddles in their driveway.
One day after an unusual amount of rain, three full days to be exact. A homeowner living in Edison, NJ went into the basement to do laundry when they discovered a musty order, damp walls and small puddles of water. The homeowner was in udder shock, for the basement had never flooded in all the years they had lived there. Luckily they knew Quality 1st Basement Systems was their local waterproofing experts and gave them call. Customer Service Representative, Sheliah, was able to find an appointment that worked best for the homeowner to get a specialist out there right away.
System Design Specialist, Bob Peters, went out to meet the homeowner and offer a permanent solution. Upon inspection, Bob noticed the foundation walls were cold and damp which is a big sign that water was inside the foundation walls leaking into the basement. Bob explained that by waterproofing the basement with a full Waterproofing System, it would keep it dry. To prevent a musty odor, a SaniDry Dehumidifier would circulate dry air throughout the basement to create a more comfortable environment.
Overall, the homeowner was relieved to have Quality 1st Basement Systems at their home to install a WaterGuard Drainage System, a TripleSafe Sump Pump and a SaniDry Dehumidifier. Since then the homeowner likes to call every so often when it rains to let Quality 1st know their basement is still dry.
A crawl space is the last place in your home you are in often. it is important to always inspect your crawl space to make sure it is clean, dry and healthy for your home sits right on top of it. If you let an entire season such as summer go by without checking, a small problem can turn into a big one. This is exactly what happened to a homeowner living in Point Pleasant, NJ. With the summer being full of warm weather and sun, this homeowner forgot to inspect their crawl space. When it came time to close the summer home for the winter, they noticed a small animal crawling out of the crawl space vent. Inspecting further, they noticed high humidity and moisture inside. With the vent now open, small creatures, hot summer air or cold winter air and water could easily get inside.
They contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems right away for a free estimate on Crawl Space Encapsulation. The team installed a Full Crawl Space System which included, CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to prevent humidity and moisture from forming. WaterGuard was installed to prevent any water from entering inside. New Vent Covers were installed to seal off the crawl space, allowing it to stay clean, dry and healthy. A Crawl Space Sump Pump System known as a SmartSumpPump, was installed inside as well which has a built-in alarm system to notify the homeowner right away if it detects any water leaks.
The Homeowner was amazed at the transformation of their crawl space and relieved to know that it will now stay clean and dry during the months they are there and the months they are not.
