Middletown, NJ homeowner contacted Quality 1st due to sinking concrete slabs in his patio area. The homeowner had received estimates from other contractors on replacing the entire concrete patio which far exceeded the pricing of the PolyLEVEL repair and would have disrupted his home and pool area for an extended period of time. A Quality 1st installation team was able to lift the concrete in just one day! This homeowner and his family had full use of his patio only 15 minutes after our crew was finished. PolyLEVEL is the fastest, least disruptive, and economically sensible solution to concrete leveling.
A Middletown homeowner was losing money and sleep over his exposed crawl space. The porous concrete allowed water and air to seep in, causing humidity and dampness.

The crew installed the CleanSpace Liner, which is a crawl space encapsulation system that protects against water, outside air, and mold growth. This liner is made of layers of durable plastic, which is fitted to the crawl space to create a vapor barrier. Now this crawl space is waterproof, mold resistant and energy-efficient!

A homeowner in Middletown, New Jersey noticed their concrete driveway was sinking and settling. This occurs because concrete is poured over backfilled soil. Over time, this soil settles and creates voids underneath, causing the slab to shift. This can be dangerous because someone could trip and hurt themselves.
Looking for a solution, the homeowner made a quick call to Quality 1st Basement Systems where our customer service representative booked them an appointment with our System Design Specialist, Jeff Pitek. Jeff provided an inspection of the site and he suggested a polyurethane foam to lift and level the concrete.
Our foreman, Sean Johnson, arrived at the site and began the process of using the PolyLevel Injection System. This is done by drilling tiny holes in the slab and injecting the foam into the voids underneath. This can be installed within a day and requires minimal disturbance to the concrete. PolyLevel is environmentally friendly and is lightweight, so it will not add any weight to the existing soil.
When the job was complete, the homeowner was happy with the result. Since the installation, they have not had any issues with their concrete driveway.

The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Jeff Pitek, was able to provide an inspection and help them find a solution to this issue.

A homeowner in Middletown, NJ recently moved into their new home. They did a full home inspection and noticed foundation cracks on the inside and outside walls of their home. They were not fully sure what could have caused the situation, so they needed some professional assistance to help determine the best repair solution. After searching the Internet, the homeowner found Quality 1st Basement Systems and thought they would be the perfect fit.
We scheduled an appointment for our System Design Specialist, Jack Huber to evaluate the cracks. After fully inspecting the home and the problem, Jack explained that foundation issues are the result of the home's soil.
Soil constantly changes throughout the years, having to shrink when it's dry or having to expand when it's wet. This causes the foundation to settle, creating cracks inside and outside of the home.
Since this was a minor issue, Jack suggested our Carbon Armor Straps would be the perfect solution. Our Carbon Armor Straps are a flexible adhesive that is applied to cracking walls. It contains immense strength, which will help stop the cracks from growing.
After the installation was done by our crew, the homeowner was happy to see their home fully repaired. Since then, they haven't noticed cracks in their home, allowing them to have peace of mind.
A Middletown, NJ homeowner felt a nagging sensation on the first level of their home, so they knew something was wrong. They contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and scheduled an appointment with our System Design Specialist, Jack Huber.
Jack arrived at the home, on time, and fully inspected the floors. After measuring the floors, Jack then went down to the basement where he found the cause of the problem. The wooden beams holding the first floor were sagging. Over time, wood tends to rot and weaken due to numerous causes like wood rotting, adding weight above the beams, or the floor framing spanned too far.
Jack presented his findings to the homeowner and suggested our SmartJack System by Supportworks would be the perfect solution. Our SmartJacks provide a solid support for sagging and weakened beams, providing stability and straightness to floor joists.
In conclusion, our SmartJack System made a powerful impact on the home. Once the SmartJack has been installed, the floors have been fully stabilized, and the homeowner did not experience any sagging sensation since then.

Mary had an unfinished basement and was interested in having walls and floors installed to create more space for her kids to enjoy. Although her basement never had signs of water, it was always cold and she could feel a draft standing near her basement windows. Quality 1st sent Basement Design Specialist, Laura, to meet with Mary and design the best basement finishing layout that would work best for what Mary was trying to accomplish in her basement.
For the basement floors, Laura recommended Pro Comfort Carpeting, which is an innovative basement carpeting that is completely inorganic, making it completely waterproof and mold resistant. This carpeting is perfect for children since it is installed in individual squares making it easy to replace in case of spills, damaged or worn out areas. It is combined with ThermalDry Insulated Floor Decking, which will help raise the floor temperature as much as 17 degrees, making the basement more comfortable than ever before. For the basement walls, Laura recommended EverLast Wall Panels. These panels have built-in insulation to make the basement warmer and more comfortable for the family to enjoy.
Quality 1st Basements received a call from a homeowner living in Middletown, NJ who was experiencing sinking concrete in their driveway and backyard patio area. Our customer service representative Keashan was able to set an appointment up with Concrete Repair Specialist, Jeff and within a few short days, Jeff was out to meet them.
Jeff noticed the concrete driveway had settled around 3 inches at the top of the driveway near the garage and roughly 1 inch towards the end of the driveway near the sidewalk. The homeowner was nervous that these tripping hazards could be dangerous to his family and wanted them removed right away. When Jeff inspected the backyard patio he noticed the entire area was settled and uneven, preventing the family from being able to put furniture on it. The slabs had sunk 2 inches in some areas and up to 5 inches in others.
Project Manager Arturo and his crew injected PolyLevel Foam underneath each sinking slab, raising each one back to level. Within 15 minutes of completion, the homeowner was able to put their car back into the driveway and the family was able to put out their patio furniture. The homeowner was amazed at the entire process and pleased with how professional Arturo and his crew were.
David and his family had noticed that in a short period of time, the floors on their first floor of their home had become very cold. His wife had also noticed that their utility bill has increased the last two months compared to others. Doing some research he discovered that cold floors can be due to an uninsulated crawl space. Then he realized that all his pipes, water heater, and furnace were all located in his crawl space. He decided to contact his local expert in Crawl Space repair and insulation, Quality 1st Basements.
System Design Specialist, Laszlo Lenkey, explained to David that at one point he had water in his crawl space and the insulation started to absorb the moisture and water causing it to get heavy and fall. Now that his crawl space was no longer properly insulated, the cold draft from outside was now creating a cold environment inside causing the floors on the first floor to get colder and his furnace was now working harder to warm the home.
Laszlo suggested fully insulating the crawl space with a heat barrier called SilverGlo. SilverGlo is installed on the floor and walls, reflecting heat back inside the crawl space. SilverGlo is installed to the rim joists as well where drafts linger in from. Another great insulation product is TerraBlock which is designed specifically for the crawl space and works on either a dirt or concrete floor crawl space. TerraBlock keeps water and moisture away from the dirt and concrete preventing the crawl space from becoming colder.
When Paul in Middletown, NJ found water coming down the walls and up from the floor of his basement, he immediately called Quality 1st Basement Systems. He'd seen the truck in his neighborhood and knew a lot of his neighbors were happy with the work done by Quality 1st.
Ken Peare, a Basement Waterproofing Expert, evaluated the basement and could see right away where the problem was and what could be done to fix it.
Foreman and Installation Specialist, Victor Leon, installed the WaterGuard Drainage System around the perimeter of the basement to direct water into the TripleSafe Sump Pump. The TripleSafe Sump Pump is 3 sump pumps in one and guarantees a dry basement. Because winters in New Jersey can cause pipes to freeze, Ken recommended the IceGuard Discharge Line. IceGuard is especially designed to keep the system working even on the coldest days. LawnScape was also installed to direct the water away from the home.
Now this Middletown basement stays dry and Paul is very happy he called Quality 1st!
