Job Stories From Monmouth County, NJ
Wall Anchors Save Freehold Foundation

When George from Freehold called Quality 1st Basement Systems, he was very worried about the structural integrity of his home. There was a long horizontal crack across one wall of his basement and the wall was starting to bow inwards. Was there any way to repair the wall and save his home?

Quality 1st Basement and Foundation Expert, Jeff Nero, went out to Freehold to evaluate the wall. Jeff had seen this type of damage before and knew just what to recommend. Wall Anchors would stabilize the wall and, over time, could correct the bowing. These anchors install quickly and restore the value of the home.

George was relieved there was an easy, permanent solution that would make his home safe and the foundation stable once again. When the Quality 1st crew showed up with Foreman Jonathan Neira, the Wall Anchors were installed and the horizontal crack was sealed. George was impressed with their professionalism and knowledge of the Wall Anchor System. They answered all his questions and now George likes to recommend Quality 1st Basement Systems to anyone who has basement or foundation issues.

Cracked Foundation Saved with CarbonArmor

When the horizontal crack in the basement was getting worse and the wall started bowing inwards, Matt from Howell knew his basement was in trouble. A neighbor recommended Quality 1st Basement Systems and Matt called right away.

Quality 1st Basement and Foundation Expert, Nick Biris, inspected the basement and could see the structural integrity of the home was at risk. He recommended CarbonArmor to secure the wall. CarbonArmor is a wall reinforcing system that is 10 times stronger than steel.

The Quality 1st crew arrived and installed 8 CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcing Strips on the problem wall. The entire project was completed quickly and the crew left the basement clean. Now that the home is safe once again, Matt knows he called the best company for the job. Quality 1st Basement Systems gets his recommendation every time!

Concrete Leveling in Englishtown

When a business owner in Englishtown saw the floors in his warehouse were sinking, causing uneven cracks and had become a tripping hazard, he was worried he’d have to rip up the entire floor. A fellow business owner told him about the Quality 1st PolyLEVEL Polymer Injection process and he called right away. Could Quality 1st repair the sinking floors?

PolyLEVEL expert, Brian Way and the Quality 1st crew arrived in Englishtown and quickly went to work. Dime sized holes were drilled into the concrete slabs and the polymer was injected. The polymer consists of two separate liquids that are combined right at the injection nozzle to trigger a chemical reaction that turns the blended ingredients into expanding, high-density foam. The floors in the warehouse were quickly realigned.

The business owner was thrilled with how quickly the floor was leveled. He now recommends anyone with uneven concrete floors call Quality 1st for their PolyLEVEL Polymer Injection System.

Middletown Basement Waterproofed by Quality 1st Basement Systems

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!

Humidity in Basement Removed

Freehold homeowner experienced water and humidity in her basement. She wanted to finish the basement but knew that the existing water problems made the space unusable. 

Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a full basement waterproofing system including WaterGuard, SaniDry XP, and a TripleSafe sump pump to ensure that the basement would stay dry. The WaterGuard filters water to the TripleSafe which pumps the water out of the basement. SaniDry XP is the only dehumidifier large enough to dry the air in a full basement.

The Quality 1st Basement Systems team also installed EverLast Wall Panels to brighten, cover, and protect the walls from water vapor. ThermalDry flooring was installed to add additional heat to the flooring and serve as flooring that is perfect for a basement since it can never be damaged due to water.

This homeowner is now able to use her basement space for entertaining, family parties, and football Sundays for her family!

Basement Waterproofing in Red Bank

After purchasing a home in Red Bank, the homeowner noticed there was a bit of a musty smell in the basement. When they saw black spots on the wall they worried about mold. The next rain storm had puddles forming in the corners and the paint the previous owners had put on the walls began to bubble. Knowing they had to get this fixed, they called Quality 1st Basement Systems.

Basement Waterproofing Expert, Dory Freud, visited the home and did a thorough inspection of the basement. Seeing where the moisture was seeping through the walls, Dory recommended the ThermalDry Wall System and WaterGuard Drainage System. A TripleSafe Sump Pump would offer 3 times the protection of the old sump pump and would work even if the power went out. Outside the home, Dory suggested an IceGuard Discharge Line to keep the system functioning if the temperatures dropped below freezing.

The crew arrived with Foreman, Jesus Alvarez-Sanchez and they worked quickly and efficiently to install the complete waterproofing system. This Red Bank homeowner is now very happy to have a dry basement they can use for storage and recreation. They now tell everyone to call Quality 1st Basement Systems!

Driveway Concrete Leveling in North Brunswick

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.

Turtl Saves Holmdel Crawl Space

A Holmdel homeowner had a crawl space that filled with water and debris due to a below ground door that was not properly sealed. The build up of water was causing humidity in the crawl space. Excess water and humidity in this crawl space caused this homeowner to see mold symptoms. The humidity in the space was creating a breeding ground for dust mites, which posed an allergy risk for the residents. 

Quality 1st Basement Systems installed the Turtl, which is a plastic crawl space door and access well. Due to its durable plastic material, the Turtl will never rot or deteriorate; it will last as long as the home will. The tight fitting Turtl does not allow for humidity to seep into crawl spaces, thus preventing the moisture necessary for mold to grow. The homeowner chose the green color option to match her exterior and was very happy with both the look and functionality of the Turtl.

PolyLEVEL Restores Sinking Concrete Driveway

When a Little Silver homeowner's concrete driveway began sinking, it became both unsightly and unsafe. The driveway began sinking due to poorly compacted fill soil beneath the concrete. The homeowner was worried that the cracks and gaps created tripping hazards for residents and guests, and also posed an issue for vehicles. Aesthetically, the sinking driveway was a huge eyesore.

Quality 1st Basement Systems had the perfect solution for this Little Silver homeowner, which was to use a PolyLEVEL treatment. PolyLEVEL uses high density polymers to raise sinking concrete to its original position, which was the way this driveway was treated. It is much more cost-effective and time-efficient compared to other solutions, such as mudjacking, which can leave gaping holes and takes days to cure. Now this Little Silver resident is happy and safe with his fixed driveway.

PolyLEVEL Restores Sinking Concrete Driveway

A Little Silver homeowner's concrete driveway was sinking, which created a driveway that was both unsightly and unsafe. The settlement occurred due to poorly compacted fill soil beneath the concrete that had shifted and created a void, which the concrete driveway then began to sink into. The homeowner knew that the cracks and gaps in his driveway could pose a tripping hazard for residents and guests, as well as a danger for vehicles.

Quality 1st Basement Systems offered the perfect solution to this sinking concrete driveway with PolyLEVEL treatment. PolyLEVEL uses high density polymers to raise the sunken concrete back to its original level, so that the cracks and gaps are filled. PolyLEVEL is a cost-effective and time-efficient solution, especially in comparison to other solutions such as mudjacking, which leaves gaping holes and takes weeks to cure. The Little Silver homeowner is now happy and safe with his newly fixed driveway!

CarbonArmor Stabilization Protects Keyport Home from Wall Failure

It's every homeowner's biggest fear. Bowing walls in the basement mean a sign of a larger problem. When Brad B. in Keyport, NJ noticed that his basement walls were tilting forward, he worried about the safety of his home. Tilting basement walls can collapse, causing the whole house to dangerously fall inward. His home was his pride, it was where his family lived and he wanted to keep them safe. 

Led by foreman Juan Garcia, Quality 1st Basement Systems stabilized the foundation wall with CarbonArmor. Used by the US Department of Defense, CarbonArmor is a high-tech solution for bowing walls. The carbon wall straps are ten times stronger than steel. Once attached to the wall, the straps were covered with an epoxy resin to seal them in place. The tight contour braces the wall, preventing it from bowing further. 

Brad B. is very pleased with a job well done by foundation specialists Quality 1st Basement Systems. His home is now a much safer place.

No More Fear of Severe Wet Weather in Union City, NJ

During some heavy rains, Sam V. noticed that water had found its way into his basement.  He used the internet to search for help with waterproofing when he came across Quality 1st Basement Systems.  He contacted Quality 1st to schedule a no-obligation, free estimate as offered on the website.  Thereafter, waterproofing specialist Jeff Nero visited Sam to complete a thorough inspection and offer an affordable and efficient solution to his basement problem.   

A Quality 1st installation crew mobilized to Union City, NJ to begin fixing Sam’s basement.  WaterGuard was included in the design to direct water away from walls and toward the TripleSafe sump pump system, engineered to provide adequate protection and back-up in the event of extreme wet weather.  CleanSpace walling provided a barrier to water vapor as well as brightened up the basement area.

Thanks to Sam’s decision to have Quality 1st Basement Systems fix his basement, he no longer has to worry about water in his basement following heavy rains. 

Permanent Stabilization in Lakewood Township, NJ

Homeowners in Lakewood Township, NJ had some concerns over the horizontal cracking they noticed in their block foundation and located Quality 1st Basement Systems through a Google search.  Foundation Specialist Ken Peare visited the homeowners, completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection of the foundation, described the suggested repairs and answered questions, and provided a free written estimate.

Because the customers wanted the promised foundation resolution that Ken offered, Project Manager Juan Garcia started his crew on the work.  The stronger-than-concrete CarbonArmor was installed in conjunction with the revolutionary ArmorLock to stop inward movement of the wall, the complete structural solution to permanent stabilization.  Quality 1st Basement Systems answered the customers’ call to assuring them that their foundation was strong and secure once again.

Controlling Humidity and Preventing Mold in Asbury Park, NJ

Mable from Asbury Park was displeased with the foul, musty odor that was present in her basement.  She feared that the smell was an indicator of what could result from dampness and high humidity: mold.  She wanted a dehumidifier.  She searched on the internet and found Quality 1st Basement Systems. 

During the scheduled appointment with one of Quality 1st’s waterproofing specialists, Mable’s basement was inspected.  It was determined that the humidity would need to be controlled in order to prevent the growth of mold in the area.  The specialist discussed the results possible with the SaniDry XP, a high-capacity, high-efficiency dehumidification system.

The ultra-efficient SaniDry XP removes the moisture from the air and blows out a dry air into the space. This system helps keep the humidity levels below 50%, reducing the chance for mold to grow.  It also has a two-stage filter system to clean the air of allergens.  The SaniDry XP seemed to be Mable’s answer. 

A project manager was assigned to head the delivery and installation of Mable’s new, energy-efficient, powerful and effective SaniDry XP.  Not only would Mable leave her worries about mold growth behind, she also would not have to worry about emptying water basins from the self-draining SaniDry XP. 

Opportunity for Mold Growth Reduced; Let the Renovations Begin! in Interlachen, NJ

Homeowners from Interlaken (near Asbury Park) were in the process of renovating their basement.  This was an exciting project to embark on; however, before investing their time and money, they needed to resolve one concern: mold.  They knew that the constantly moist and humid area was a breeding ground for mold and they did not want the smell or damage that comes from it to ruin the basement.  They decided that they needed a powerful dehumidifier and found Quality 1st Basement Systems to help. 

The homeowners scheduled a free estimate appointment with one of Quality 1st’s waterproofing specialists, John Schweitzer.  The basement and crawl space areas were inspected.  John discussed the benefits of installing a high-efficiency, high-capacity SaniDry dehumidification system to reduce the chance of mold growth in the area by removing the moisture from the air and blowing out a dry air into the space.

John also informed the homeowners that open crawl space vents only add to the moisture and humidity problem in the basement.  He suggested the installation of CleanSpace vent covers to keep the unconditioned air out and the drier air in.   

Once Quality 1st Basement Systems completed the delivery and installation of the homeowners’ new SaniDry dehumidification system and CleanSpace vent covers, the homeowners were relieved and ready to begin renovations without worries of mold!

Helical Piers to the Leaning Chimney's Rescue! in Neptune, NJ

Lisa D. met Quality 1st Basement Systems representatives at their booth in a local home show.  She realized that she may have found help to a problem at her home that was causing her some worry.  She became concerned when she saw the chimney beginning to separate away from her home.  Luckily, Quality 1st Basement Systems sent foundation specialist, Jessica Long, to her home for an inspection of the trouble area.

Jessica deemed that the settling of the chimney foundation would best be repaired by installing helical piers.  Helical piers are installed deep enough to reach stable soil levels to support the weight of the structure.  The installation is quick with minimal disruption and it has the potential to lift the structure back toward its original position.  Additionally, this system has a patented external sleeve to prevent kinking and buckling.  These helical piers provide a permanent solution without any maintenance.

Lisa D. was glad she encountered Quality 1st Basement Systems’ booth at the show.  Now her concerns about a falling chimney have been replaced with reassurance of a stable chimney. 

Lowering Crawl Space Humidity in Shamong, NJ

This homeowner in Shamong, NJ had a critter problem. One of the vents to the crawl space decayed and left an opening for a large rodent to find a home in the crawl space. After the problem was resolved, the family thought about the quality of their crawl space. It was humid and now it was open for any insects or pests to move in.

Quality 1st Basement Systems closed up the crawl space with a vent cover. The crawl space vent cover protects the area from moisture, humidity, and any outdoor pests looking to come into the crawl space. Then, to lower the humidity the crew installed a SaniDry dehumidifier. The SaniDry is a self-draining dehumidification system that removes moisture from the air and also filters out health harming allergens such as dust mite droppings. Now this crawl space has lowered humidity and is protected from nasty pests.

Moisture Removal in Pennington, New Jersey Basement

Quality 1st Basement Systems waterproofed this basement in Pennington, New Jersey with the best products on the market. The hard-working crew installed a WaterGuard basement drain along the perimeter of the basement between the floors and walls. The WaterGuard basement drain collects moisture and drains it a sump pump. It's a simple, yet effective solution that keeps basements dry and dry for good.

The basement was also very humid. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a self-draining dehumidifier. The SaniDry dehumidifier has adjustable levels and is rated by Energy Star. It removes moisture from the air and keeps the relative humidity at a low, comfortable level. 

Bringing Relief to a New Homeowner in Long Branch, NJ

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!

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! 

Horizontal Cracking Haulted in Hightstown, NJ

Homeowner Michael A. from Hightstown had some minor water seepage in his basement over the 25 years he lived there.  The cinder blocks began showing some small vertical cracking.  Michael became more concerned, however, once he noticed the more severe horizontal crack running along one wall.  He began an internet search for a solution and found Quality 1st Basement Systems.

Foundation specialist Kenneth Peare completed a thorough inspection of Michael’s foundation.  His proposed solution was to install the CarbonArmor system.  These fabric carbon fiber straps, with their stronger-than-concrete strength and low-profile design, would be the perfect solution to secure Michael’s weakened cinder block wall.  As installation occurs from the inside, Michael had no worries of disturbance to his lawn or landscaping. 

Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to help this Hightstown customer secure and stabilize his cracked basement wall.  Michael was sure to experience relief, knowing his basement was professionally, permanently, and effectively repaired.   

Water During Rains No Longer a Problem in Bergenfield, NJ Basement

Homeowners Mr. and Mrs. C. from Bergenfield, NJ were noticing water seeping into their basement when there were heavy rains.  With the increase in wetness, they knew that their existing sump pump wasn’t doing its job.  They called Quality 1st Basement Systems for a no-obligation, free estimate by a waterproofing specialist.   

The homeowners discussed their goals during the visit and the specialist came up with a plan.  The installation crew would install WaterGuard sub-floor drainage system in the laundry room and attach it to the existing sump pump.  Additionally, an IceGuard would be installed to prevent the flooding if the discharge line freezes during colder months.  Installation of the SaniDry high-performance dehumidification and air filtration system would keep humidity below 50%, reducing the chance for mold to grow.  It would also cleanse the air of allergens with its two-stage filter system.  Additionally, this self-draining system would have no catch-basins that needed to be emptied! 

This combination of products seemed to be exactly what the homeowners wanted to resolve their basement wetness issues.  Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to accommodate these customers’ needs!      

GeoLock Wall Anchors Stabilize a Failing Foundation in Red Bank, NJ

Buying a new home is an exciting time for everyone involved.  Now if the “new” home is an older home, sometimes there are concerns that need to be addressed once residing in the house.  When a new homeowner saw the old brick foundation wall of his Red Bank residence bowing somewhat inward and he recognized that some floors seemed uneven, he didn’t hesitate beginning to contemplate the repairs needed to protect his new asset.  He found Quality 1st Basement Systems and scheduled a no-obligation free estimate with a foundation specialist.

Dan McNally visited the Red Bank homeowner, completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection, addressed the homeowners concerns and questions, and then proceeded to develop a plan to best meet the homeowner’s needs.  It was deemed that a series of GeoLock Wall Anchors would best provide stabilization of the foundation, and a proposal was drawn up for the homeowner on the spot.

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 (as were this homeowner’s) or walls that are tilting at the top or buckling without taking up space in the basement.

This homeowner found the help he needed with Quality 1st Basement Systems at an affordable price for a permanent solution!  Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to have restored the home to a safer and more stable condition.   

Basement Waterproofing in South Orange, NJ

The perspective buyer for this South Orange property had a home inspection done and the inspector found a few water problems in the basement. The basement had severe water damage and the buyer was concerned about possible mold and the columns in the basement. 

Searching the web, the potential buyer came across the Quality 1st Basement Systems website and decided to contact them for assistance. Specialist Michael Bonafante was out to asses the water problem and the foundation concerns, and he provided a permanent solution for the home. 

Foreman Juan Garcia and his crew were out to install the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, along with the SuperSump Premier Sump Pump System to keep the basement dry. For the foundation, Foreman Jesus Alvarez-Sanchez was out to install the SmartJack System to stabilize and support the existing foundation. After all the work was done, the buyer of this South Orange property was happy to know that he would not have to worry about any water issues in the basement, or foundation problems once he bought the house.  

Flooding Crawl Space Repaired in New Milford, NJ

This New Milford homeowner lives by a river and with the water tables rising, his crawl space had flooded several times. He knew that since the river wasn't going anywhere that this problem would only continue if he didn't find a solution. After doing some research he knew that a French drain and sump pump would be the necessary products to help him come to a permanent solution and so he went on Angie's List and found Quality 1st Basement Systems.

Quality 1st sent a design specialist to New Milford and gave the home owner a free estimate on his crawl space. He decided that CleanSpace, a liner that protects the crawl space against water, mold, rotting, animals and unwanted air out, would be the best thing to keep the homeowners crawl space dry. The design specialist also proposed TerraBlock which is an energy saving, moisture protection, insulation that will control the air temperature in that space all year round. Since he noticed that the crawl space was sagging, he also recommended SmartJacks to stabilize it.

The New Milford Homeowner was very happy with Senior Foreman, Jesus Alverez- Sanchez and his crew with how nice and professional they were and how well they cleaned up when they were finished!   

Dehumidifier Installed in Pompton Plains, NJ

Pompton Plains homeowner had been getting water in his basement for years. With the amount of rain we had recently, his basement had 4 to 5 inches of water. He began to smell a weird odor and could feel the uncomfortable dampness when being in the basement. The homeowner knew that if he didn't find a solution to his basement problems that it would become a useless space that he and his family would never use.

A neighbor had recommended he call Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate! Senior Design Specialist, Dan McNally, gave a full inspection of the basement and  designed a solution for the homeowners specific problem he was experiencing.

Concrete walls absorb moisture from the soil and release it into the air inside the basement creating that cold dampness. Senior Foreman, Jonathan Neira and his crew installed a SaniDry Dehumidifier to prevent dampness, moisture build up and mold problems that could develop over time. The SaniDry will keep dry air circulating throughout a space as big as 2,500 sq ft. 

Quality 1st Basement System was able to make the basement dry and comfortable for the Pompton Plains homeowner and his family. 

Basement Finishing in Bradley Beach, NJ

Ann from Bradley Beach contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems when she noticed dampness in her unfinished basement. She had a sump pump but wanted to replace it with a TripleSafe because of its battery backup that will continue to pump water out if there were a power outage. Quality 1st had done work on previous properties she had owned and knew they would be the company to solve her problem. 

Being that Ken Peare had been the System Design specialist to visit her at her previous homes, Quality 1st sent him out to meet with Ann and see the problems she was experiencing in her new home. Ken did notice the damp feeling in the basement along with a cold draft. He recommended she replace the basement windows to seal the basement from cold air, water and animals  trying to come through. He also recommended a Dehumidifier to help circulate the dry air through the whole basement to make it more comfortable for those using the space.

 Senior Foreman, Juan Garcia and his crew installed EverLast basement windows and a SaniDry dehumidifier. Ann also wanted to finish her basement so the Quality 1st team installed Ceiling,Thermal Dry flooring and EverLast Wall, all waterproof to keep her basement nice and dry and moisture free!

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Schooleys Mountain

John from Schooleys Mountain, wanted to winterize his crawl space with the winter weather approaching fast. The best way to avoid cold floors, frozen pipes and rising heat bills is to seal and insulate your crawl space to make your home more comfortable. Winterizing the crawl space will eliminate the cold drafts. He saw a Quality 1st Basement Systems Advertisement in the TheHomeMag and decided to call for a free estimate.

Senior Design Specialist, Jeff Nero went out to Schooleys Mountain to meet with John and do a full inspection of his 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.

Redirected Water Coming Through Basement Wall in Atlantic Highlands, NJ

Living on a sloped lot in Atlantic Highlands, a homeowner was facing some challenges with water getting into her basement.  She noticed the water leaking an excessive amount every time it rained.   Looking for professional help, Lindsay M. arranged to have basement waterproofing experts, Quality 1st Basement Systems, meet with her to analyze the situation and determine a one-time solution. 

Waterproofing specialist Bob Peters completed a thorough inspection.  He proposed the installation of WaterGuard, a patented sub-floor drainage system which captures water from the walls and redirects it through channels leading to a sump pump system.  It was determined that a SuperSump sump pump would effectively and efficiently handle the leaking wall, to provide protection against water intrusion in the basement.  Also, to prevent a flood in winter months (if temperatures drop low enough to cause the discharge line to freeze), Bob included an IceGuard in the proposal as well as a LawnScape Outlet to move discharge water away from the home’s foundation and disperse it on the lawn. 

The homeowner also agreed to have Mold-X2 applied in the basement.  This 2-part system eliminates surface mold stains and helps to prevent mold with the antimicrobial disinfectant.

Lindsay M. experienced a reliable solution to her basement water problems.  She could experience some relief knowing that Quality 1st Basement Systems designed and installed an efficient system working to keep her basement drier!

Wet and Cold Crawl Space Repaired in Middletown, NJ

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.

Raised Porch in Annandale, NJ

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. 

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.

Foundation Settlement in Hawthorne, NJ

A home in Hawthorne, New Jersey had signs of foundation settlement and contacted Quality 1st for a solution.

Foundation Settlement in Long Branch, NJ

Foundation failure is a scary problem for any homeowner. One of the biggest things about foundations is the lack of information homeowners have about their foundation and why its cracked or settling. Luckily for the homeowners in Long Branch, NJ they knew exactly who to call for an estimate on their failing foundation, Quality 1st Basements. System Design Specialist, Jeff Nero, met with John and Mary to inspect the foundation of their home, explain the causes of foundation failure and design a solution that best stabilized their home. Jeff noticed several staircase cracks along the basement walls. Two of the cracks were so large that the natural sunlight from outside began to shine through. 

After a full walkthrough inspection with John and Mary, they sat down to discuss the causes of staircase cracks and the best solution offered by Quality 1st Basements. Jeff explained that stair-step cracking is a common symptom of foundation settlement. When the home begins to settle, vertical cracks form and begin to widen as the wall rotates. A foundation will settle when the soil underneath the home can no longer hold the weight. This will cause the home to shift and the foundation to crack. Jeff recommended  Push Piers, since they reach deep into the ground to the stable soil to ensure permanent stability for the foundation. Push Piers never rust and the installation is less invasive to the area of the home. Over time it can often lift the foundation back towards its original position. John and Mary knew right away they wanted Quality 1st Basements to permanently stabilize their foundation, gives them peace of mind, and of course protect their biggest investment, their home!

Quality 1st Foreman, Jonathan Neira and his team installed 8 Push Piers along the foundation of the home where the foundation was cracking. During the halfway point of the installation, Jonathan did a walk through with both John and Mary to keep them up to date on the progress and give them a rough estimate of completion. Once the project was the complete and the final walk through was finished, Jonathan and his team left no trace of a project ever being done. The property was clean, the homeowners were happy and Quality 1st had two new satisfied customers!  

Concrete Sinking and Settling in Long Branch, NJ

On the first hot day of summer, Long Branch, NJ homeowner Tom, removed his pool cover and noticed up to 8 slabs had settled. Over the winter the soil underneath could no longer hold the weight of the concrete slab, therefore sinking causing the gaps and the tripping hazards around his pool area. With his daughters graduation party in a few short weeks he needed to get the concrete fixed right away. 

Searching on Google for a solution, Tom came across before and after pictures on the Quality 1st Basements website of pool slabs similar to his raised and leveled with PolyLevel. Reading that PolyLevel is a clean installation and causes no disturbance to the surrounding area, Tom called right away knowing this is the exact solution he had been looking for. Customer Service Representative, Keashan, was able to schedule Tom a free estimate appointment with concrete Repair Specialist Andy Gagliardi. Andy did a full inspection of the pool deck and marked 9 total slabs had settled causing 1 inch gap and almost 3 inches of settlement creating a very large trip hazard right by his diving board. Andy explained that all these slabs could be lifted with a Polyurethane Foam known as PolyLevel. He reassured Tom the installed is done all in one day and within just 15 minutes the slabs could be walked on or driven over that's how stabilized they would be. Tom was relieved not only that his slabs could be raised but that the project wouldn't effect his daughters graduation party. 

Quality 1st Foreman, Arturo and his crew were able to raise each individual slab back to its original state, leveling the entire pool deck area. Arturo did a full walk through around the pool area to make sure all furniture and pool equipment were away from the area for the crew to have a  cleared work space. Once the space was ready, his team began to drill small penny-size holes into each sinking slab. Using special equipment, PolyLevel was injected underneath the slab filling the void underneath that caused the settlement. Once the void is filled, the PolyLevel foam begins to harden raising the slab back to level, permanently stabilizing the pool deck area. Tom was very happy that his pool no longer had the eye sore of tripping hazards and now had peace of mind knowing the tripping hazards were removed in time. 

 

 

Humid Crawl Space in Long Branch, NJ Encapsulated

Brady, a homeowner in Long Branch, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basements when he was in his crawl space and noticed moisture on his pipes and could feel the high humidity. The crawl space had become a nasty area underneath his home. Looking to fix the problem and create a dryer and cleaner space, he looked to quality 1st for a solution. System Design Specialist, Laszlo Lenkey, did a full inspection of the crawl space and then sat down with Brady to discuss why his crawl space had become this hot and nasty space and a solution that he himself would design right then and there for his crawl space. 

Laszlo explained that the crawl space vents were allowing that hot humid air into his crawl space and with air comes moisture. It is obvious that warm air holds a lot more moisture then cold and so in the summer time, your crawl space is fighting that heat, the water and the pests that travel into the crawl space. High humidity causes rotting, mold and loss of energy. 

Laszlo suggested encapsulation! By encapsulating the crawl space, we are sealing off water flooding and leaks, moisture, mold and any pests that could get inside. To do this we install a moisture vapor barrier known as CleanSpace, to the walls and floor of the crawl space. CleanSpace is a pool like liner, that will prevent water leaks and water vapor from seeping through. Each crawl space vent is sealed tight with a crawl space vent cover and a Sedona Dehumidifier to circulate dry air throughout the entire space.  

Brady was amazed at not only how bright and clean his crawl space was but also how dry!

Wet Basement in Long Branch, NJ

Every new homeowners nightmare is to get water in their basement only a short time after purchasing their home. Tod and his wife had just recently purchased their second home in Long Branch, NJ when just one month after moving in, they discovered a puddle of water in their basement. Luckily Quality 1st Basements was able to send System Design Specialist, Kenny T out to inspect the basement and design a solution that best fit the water problems they were experiencing. Kenny T explained that the main reason a basement leaks is because of footing drain failure. This is when the soil around the outside of the foundation can't drain and becomes saturated. The weight of the water in the soil creates hydrostatic pressure and pushes the water into the basement through either the joint between the footing and the wall, cracks or under the footing. He recommended a waterproofing system consisting of WaterGuard drainage system, a SuperSump Pump with an Ultra Battery Backup System, and a SaniDry Dehumidifier be installed to prevent future water leaks and possible flooding. 

Quality 1st Basements installed a WaterGuard drainage system above the footing, out of the "mud zone" so that the WaterGuard will never clog or get debris stuck inside. Our WaterGuard system creates a small wall gap to catch water seepage from the walls. WaterGuard collects the water and directs it to the SuperPump pump. The SumpPump is only part of the Sump Pump system. Our Super Sump pump has a sump liner, an airtight sump lid, a floor drain in the sump lid, a pump stand, and a pump alarm. Since many water issues are cause by severe weather storms that can cause power outages, it's always good to have a backup battery system which is exactly why Tod and his wife wanted the UltraSump Battery Backup System that would automatically kick in and begin removing water if the power were to knock out. 

Quality 1st Basements was able to give Tod and his wife peace of mind now that their basement is protected. 

5 Inch Tripping Hazard in Long Branch, NJ

Long Branch, NJ homeowner was experiencing sinking slabs in her backyard patio for years but ignored the problem since she didn't want to replace the entire patio area for it would no longer match the concrete around her pool. One day she received TheHomeMag magazine and flipping through noticed Quality 1st Basements' Sinking Concrete Ad. Immediately going to the website she was able to not only see before and afters of similar situations like hers, but also videos and reviews on the PolyLevel system used to raise the slabs. She called right away for a free estimate appointment. 

Concrete Repair Specialist, Jeff Pitek, did a full inspection of the patio area and measured a few slabs sinking roughly an inch or two but one slab near the deck had almost 5 inches of settlement! Jeff explained that the tripping hazard could cause a serious injury if someone were to trip. He explained that over time, the soil underneath the patio area can no longer hold the weight of the concrete and begins to sink and settle causing the slabs to no longer be even. Removing and replacing the patio is an option but would cost a large amount and the concrete would no longer match. Using special equipment, PolyLevel foam is injected underneath each slab, filling that void. Once the void is completely filled the PolyLevel begins to raise each slab back to its desired level hardening for permanent stability. Within just 15 minutes of our PolyLevel team completing the installation, the Long Branch homeowner could finally put her patio furniture back outside and use her patio!

Sealing off Crawl Space from Water and Humidity Bradley Beach, NJ

A crawl space can become a very unhealthy and nasty space underneath a home if not properly sealed off from the harmful outside environment. Open crawl space vents will allow water and humidity to easily pass through into the crawl space. Over time that dampness will cause the insulation to get wet and fall from the ceiling and create high chances of mold. Quality 1st Basements offers a crawl space encapsulation system that not only promotes a dry space underneath your home but will help keep the crawl space clean therefore providing the first level of your home with cleaner, better quality air. 

A homeowner in Bradley beach had a nasty crawl space that had dirt floors, dampness on the floor and walls and high levels of moisture and humidity. Being so close to the water, that salty air inside the crawl space also helped create an odor from the humidity and moisture. Our team went in and completely transformed the crawl space into a clean and healthier space. We sealed all the crawl space vents to prevent moisture and humidity from coming through. We encapsulated the crawl space with our CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to seal the space and prevent water vapor. Any water seepage will be directed down to our WaterGuard drainage system which will lead all water into the TripleSafe Sump pump. 

Nothing was more satisfying then delivering peace of mind to this homeowner who no longer has to worry about their crawl space. 

Basement Wall Cracking in Bradley Beach, NJ

John  purchased his very first home in Bradley Beach. Knowing that there were small cracks in the foundation when he purchased it, he wanted to keep an eye on them until he was ready to start a new project. Months go by and John notices one day that the once small manageable cracks had grown and were starting to spread wider and longer. John knew that his time was up and someone needed to come and take a look at these cracks right away before they got worse and caused serious damage. 

Going to google, John searched for his local Foundation experts, Quality 1st Basements and called for a free estimate appointment. We sent System Design Specialist, Rey, out to  inspect the foundation cracks and design a solution that would stabilize the foundation and prevent future movement. He inspected the entire basement to make sure each area of the basement wall was examined and no cracks were missed. The large cracks on the long wall of the basement was proof that the foundation had settled causing the foundation walls to shift causing the large cracking. He recommended CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcing System to stabilize the basement wall. CarbonArmor straps are installed against the wall with a strong epoxy and brackets. This system is adjustable to gradually pull the wall back towards its original position. Whats great about this wall reinforcing system is the opportunity it provides the homeowner if they ever want to finish the basement. This system could be covered with our EverLast Wall Panels. 

Concrete Raising in Tennent, NJ

A new homeowner in Tennent, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basements when they discovered their back patio area had settled. Their patio furniture moved and was no longer stationary on the concrete. Water pooled in the center after heavy rain, and cracks formed. Overall the patio needed a concrete solution before summer came and friends and family would be coming over to enjoy sunshine in this backyard.

Andy G., our Concrete Repair Specialist and Ash our Concrete Lifting and Leveling Foreman, made sure this homeowner would be nothing less then satisfied. Our team worked together to ensure the entire patio area would be raised back towards its original level. Each slab was raised with the precise amount of PolyLevel by measuring the width and depth of each slab. 

The homeowner was impressed by not only our professional team but the entire installation processes. No mess, no disruption and all by using environmentally safe PolyLevel Foam. Our team even helped the homeowner put out all their patio furniture once everything was cleaned up and equipment was put back in the truck.

Concrete Lifting and Leveling in Roebling, NJ

John, a homeowner in Burlington County, had sinking concrete all around his pool area. Removing the cover, he noticed several slabs had settled over the winter and now he had uneven concrete creating an eye sore and tripping hazards! Replacing the entire pool deck was not an option for him. He wanted a solution that would be quick and cause no disruption to the surrounding landscape near the pool. Doing research online, he came across our Concrete Lifting and Leveling System, PolyLevel. Curious about the system and its material, John contacted us for a free estimate. We sent Concrete Repair Specialist, Dylan, out to provide a thorough inspection and answer any questions John had. 

Dylan explained that over time, concrete sinks and settles because the soil beneath can no longer support the weight of the concrete. The cause behind weakening soil is one of three causes, too wet, too dry or poorly compacted. For John, his soil was too dry causing it to shrink and creating  voids between the soil and the slab. PolyLevel fills the voids, raises the slabs back to level, permanently stabilizing the entire concrete area. 

 

Additional Support provided by Quality 1st Basements

Being a homeowner of a home with foudation issues can be really scary. Foundation issues can hurt the value of your home, effect your peace of mind and can be a costly project if you ignore the signs. When John, from Vienna, noticed in his sons basement that cracked had formed, he told him to contact a professional right away to get them inspected. 

We sent Foundation Repair Specialist, Steve V. out to inspect the foundation and offer a solution that would protect the foundation and provide this homeowner with peace of mind.

On the day of the free inspection, Steve met with John and his son to elevaulate the cracks John had discovered. The cracks were both vertical and horiztonal in multiple areas of the basement. Three out of the four walls had cracks and were beginning to bow inward.

Steve recommended our CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcing System. This system consists of flexibke carbon fiber fabric straps that applied to the foundation walls with a high strength epoxy. This system stabilizes the wall to prevent further movement and cracking. This system involves no exterior excavating and it won't impact future basement finishing. Brackets located at the top of the straps help make adjustments over time to pull the wall back gradually to its original position.  

Nasty Crawl Space in Spring Lake, NJ

We have seen some of the nastiest crawl space in the past 25 years in business. Our goal is to protect the home and the family inside. What makes a crawl space nasty you ask? Dampness, musty odors and falling insulation can create a nasty environment in the crawl space. Water, unwanted air and pests find their way in to the space and mold, rotting and dampness occur. Over time the wooden beams in the crawl space begin to absorb the moisture create sagging floor joist. That is exactly what happened to a crawl space in Spring Lake, NJ.

We recommend a complete encapsulation. First, we seal all crawl space vents that allow humidity and cold drafts. Next we install our crawl space sump pump, SmartSump, to protect the crawl space from flooding. Our VaporBarrier, CleanSpace is then installed on the walls and floor of the crawl space to prevent water seepage, mold growth and moisture. Sealing the crawl space will keep the area dry and healthy to promote better quality air.

 

Concrete Repair in Spring Lake, NJ

Mary A. from Spring Lake, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems when she noticed her front walk way had started to settle. Small trip hazards had formed leading up to her front door and she knew an accident would occur if she did not get them raised.

Since her porch was poured at the same time as her walkway, replacing it, leaving miss matched cocnrete was not an option. When she heard of our concrete raising system she contacted us for a free estimate. 

Concrete Repair Specialist, Jeff Pitek, went out to meet with Mary and inspect the front walk way area. He noticed 6 concrete slabs had all settled roughly 1 to 3 inches. Since no tree roots were effecting the slabs, Polyurethane Foam, known as PolyLevel would be able to lift and level the walk way. 

Our team drills small penny-size holes into each slab. Using special equipment, they being injecting the PolyLevel underneath each slab. The poly foam will fill any voids  all while expanding to begin raising the heavy concrete. Once each slab is brought back towards its original position it begins to harden, permanently stabilizing the concrete to prevent future settlement.  

The trip hazards were removed and Mary was amazed at how fast and effect the installation was. It caused no disruption to the surrounding area. Within just 15 minutes of completion, Mary could use her front walk way to enter and exit her home.

Concrete is often poured over recently backfilled soil around a home after it is built. This loose soil settles over time and creates voids under the slab. Another issue is the erosion of the soil under the slab. When water runs down through the cracks and joints in the concrete, it washes the soil out as it passes through. These voids cause the concrete to shift and settle, which creates uneven surfaces, just like the picture shows.

This homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Jack Huber, helped them find a solution for this issue. He suggested a polymer foam to go under the concrete to lift the slab. Our foreman used the PolyLevel System to be injected by drilling small holes in the slab and injecting the polymer foam into the voids. 

The expanding properties of the polyurethane allow for an accurate lift and leveling of the slab. The PolyLevel System can be installed in a matter of a few hours with immediate loading. PolyLevel is environmentally friendly and does not degrade. It is a lightweight solution that will not add weight to the existing soil. This process requires very minimal disruption to the existing concrete.

In addition, polylevel is completely waterproof, environmentally friendly, and recovers within fifteen minutes.

Concrete Sidewalk Repair in Monmouth Beach, NJ

A resident in Monmouth Beach, New Jersey reported a sidewalk shifting and settling. This can happen because concrete is poured over poorly compacted loose soil. Over time, this soil settles and creates voids under the concrete slab. Another common issue is soil erosion under the slab.

This can be a dangerous safety hazard because a resident could trip and fall over the sidewalk.

The resident contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Dylan McDonald, helped them come up with a plan to fix this issue. He suggested they use environmentally friendly polyurethane foam to be injected under the concrete slab.

Our foreman, Sean Johnson, used the PolyLevel Injection System under the concrete. This is done by drilling small holes into the concrete and injecting the foam to fill the voids. PolyLevel is a lightweight waterproof material, so it will not add any weight to the existing soil. This process had very minimal disruption and does not require the use of heavy material.

Basement Waterproofing in Englishtown, NJ

A homeowner in Englishtown, New Jersey was experiencing water seeping in through their walls and the floors of their basement. This can happen because the poorly compacted soil around the foundation becomes saturated during heavy rainfall. This saturated soil creates hydrostatic pressure and pushes water through the foundation walls and floors. This can have many negative effects such as mold growth, musty smells, pests, poor air quality, and increased energy bills. As you can see from the picture, this basement has an abundance amount of water damaging the floors.

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

This keeps the drain system out of the mud zone and prevents it from getting clogged. This system will collect water that seeps through the basement walls and drains it to the sump pump.

When the job was complete, the homeowner was satisfied with the outcome and the professionalism they saw on the job. Now with these systems installed, their basement is protected from water intrusion and water damage.
