This homeowner living in Washington Township, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after seeing our concrete lifting and leveling advertisement in the TheHomeMag. System Design Specialist, Mike Jersey, inspected the walkway and reassured the homeowner that each sinking slab would be lifted back to level with PolyLevel, removing the tripping hazard they had outside their home.

PolyLevel is a foam that is injected into a sinking slab of concrete, once underneath the foam begins to expand and harden raising it back to its original state.

Over time, concrete sinks and settling due to the soil beneath no longer being able to support the heavy concrete. Trip hazards form which can cause serious injury if not careful. Sinking concrete not only hurts the value of the home but also brings a safety concern. Replacing the concrete is a temporary fix and leaves you with miss matched concrete. 

PolyLevel raises the sinking slab back to level without causing disturbance to the surrounding area. This polyurethane foam is environmentally friendly and waterproof and therefore will not deteriorate over time. This concrete leveling will stabilize the the concrete permanently to prevent future settlement.

Job Stories From Morris County, NJ
Chatham Basement Waterproofing

When Rod in Chatham found puddles in his basement, he reached out to a friend for help. Although his basement was unfinished, his washer and dryer were down there and he used the space for storage. His friend immediately recommended Quality 1st Basement Systems. The friend told Rod Quality 1st did an excellent job waterproofing his basement and was the only company he’d recommend. Rod called that day.

 Waterproofing specialist, Don A, went out to inspect the basement and assured Rod that his basement problem could be fixed.

 

Wilver and the Quality 1st crew arrived on time and installed a CleanSpace Wall to control the water seepage from the cinderblock walls. WaterGuard was installed around the perimeter of the basement with a Trench Drain to protect water from leaking in by the door. A SuperSump sump pump and UltraPump were installed along with IceGuard to insure the basement would be dry no matter how low the temperature dropped.

Rod was very happy with the work Quality 1st did and now he recommends them to all his friends.

 

 

Foundation Cracks Causing Water Seepage in Piscataway

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!

Tilting Chimney Fixed in Cedar Knolls, NJ

Basement specialist Ken Peare was out to see a couple in Cedar Knolls, NJ to take a look at their chimney which was settling and pulling off the house. When he arrived the problem was worse than described and actively moving. The couple told Ken Peare that they had other estimates and were not impressed. One of the companies recommended putting a strap around the chimney screwing it to the roof to keep it from moving any more. Another company suggested to just patch the cracks and leave it alone, and yet another said they would have to tear down the whole chimney and build a new one!

Ken showed the couple a few videos explaining the problem they were having, options for repair, and the helical piering system that would fix it. As they watched the videos, a lightbulb went off in the couples' heads. They went from worried and scared to having a complete understanding of the situation. They were happy to sign the contract and provide the deposit right then and there to get their settling chimney back on solid ground.

When the contact was signed, the installation date set, they took a moment to thank Ken for his explanation. The wife went as far to give him a long hug. They are happy with the end result and Ken was proud to help!

Homeowner's Porch Foundation Concerns Alleviated in Dover, NJ

Hilda D. of Dover, NJ became concerned when she noticed that the floor in her enclosed front porch was starting to lean.  When she looked around outside, she noticed that the porch was starting to separate from the main home.  There was also some stair-step cracking in the cinder block foundation of the porch.  She sought help from Quality 1st Basement Systems.

Certified foundation repair specialist Ken Peare traveled to Dover to meet Hilda.  Ken completed a thorough exterior inspection of the porch as well as an interior inspection in the crawl space beneath the porch.  Ken’s expertise resulted in the determination that the brick columns and concrete block foundation were no longer providing sufficient support for the porch.  Ken explained that what Hilda noticed were common signs of structural failure due to a combination of moisture and settlement over time; however, he was able to provide the solution that would eliminate Hilda’s concerns.

Project Manager Juan Garcia and his crew mobilized to Dover to repair Hilda’s porch foundation and crawlspace.  They installed a series of SmartJack steel supports to lift the floor and provide continued support.  Additionally, the patented PowerBrace system was installed to support the walls and potentially straighten them over time.  Lastly, Hilda liked what Ken proposed about isolating the crawl space from the earth and keeping the area cleaner and drier, so the crew encapsulated the crawl space with TerraBlock insulation and a CleanSpace liner as well as adding SilverGlo insulation panels.  Hilda D. was thereafter able to enjoy her newly-stabilized front porch with added energy savings from the crawl space repairs!     

Realized in Morristown: Two Dehumidifiers No Better Than One

Matt F. had a damp basement.  He didn’t have water in the basement; it was just damp.  He tried to eliminate the musty smell that lingered by running two dehumidifiers, but that didn’t work.  If fact, Matt said that the two units only made the basement very warm. 

Matt F. heard about Quality 1st Basement Systems so he called to get a free estimate and inspection as he really wanted a solution to the basement problems.  Basement Specialist Ken Peare met with Matt, inspected his basement, and knew the problem Matt was experiencing: if one dehumidifier didn’t take care of the smell and dampness, using a second would just double the noise and electricity used to run both of them.  Ken presented a solution in a SaniDry Basement Air System.  It would be the ultra-efficient solution by removing a greater amount of water out of the air while utilizing less energy than the two dehumidifiers Matt was running.  The reduction in the humidity would thereafter suspend the growth of mold and mildew (which likely caused the musty smell) and the system would also effectively filter the air of allergens.  Matt F. would not need to empty any discharge water catch basins with the SaniDry as it drains automatically.

Matt F. recognized his errors in trying to resolve the basement problems with two dehumidifiers.  He opted to get the SaniDry installed for a sure fix – and of course, also, for the affordability, ease of operation, and energy efficiency! 

Rain, Rain...No Longer a Problem for This Homeowner in Parsippany, NJ

Homeowner Mark P. was quite concerned with what he saw in his Parsippany basement during a rainfall.  Water was spilling out of a crack in the cinder block wall and puddling on the floor.  He knew he needed professional help and so he searched the internet.  He found Quality 1st Basement Systems and called to schedule a free estimate. 

Waterproofing specialist Kenny Tramutola completed a thorough inspection.  He proposed the installation of a waterproofing system according to Mark’s needs which included a WaterGuard sub-floor drainage system, two SuperSump sump pumps, and two IceGuards.  Any water seeping into Mark’s basement would collect in the WaterGuard.  The WaterGuard would then direct the water to a SuperSump sump pump, which includes an efficient primary pump and a battery-operated back-up pump (in case of a power outage or if a breaker is tripped).  The SuperSump would pump water out of the basement and would also be prevented from causing a flood in winter months (if the discharge line freezes) by inclusion of an IceGuard. 

Mark P. was happy to have his basement water problem resolved by Quality 1st Basement Systems.  He now had a smooth and efficient system to handle the rainy days!     

Tripping Hazard Cured in Almost No Time in Randolph, NJ

Joseph F. from Randolph, NJ wanted to fix a concrete walkway in front of his home that was noticeably sinking and settling.  In actuality, it was a tripping hazard, dropping off at approximately 4”.  He searched on-line and found Quality 1st Basement Systems.  He wanted to know if Quality 1st’s PolyLEVEL process was the solution he was searching for, so he scheduled an appointment for a free estimate.

The PolyLEVEL system is a quick fix for sinking concrete slabs.  The process would involve the injection of structural grade polymers beneath Joseph’s concrete walkway slabs through small holes, lifting and leveling the area; in essence, eliminating the tripping hazard.  The environmentally friendly material used in this process is less porous than concrete and would not wash out or deteriorate in the ground.    

Joseph F. agreed to have Quality 1st Basement Systems complete the work and since PolyLEVEL cures within 15 minutes, Joseph’s concrete walkway was ready to be walked on again in almost no time!  

SunHouse Basement Window Enclosure: A Cure for a Leaking Basement Window in Randolph, NJ

Brian and his wife were concerned when they saw water coming into the basement through one of the windows in their home in Randolph, NJ.  They sought a permanent fix and so Brian called Quality 1st Basement Systems to get a free inspection and free estimate.

Upon arrival, the Quality 1st Basement System’s waterproofing specialist spoke with the homeowners about their concerns and completed a thorough inspection of the basement area, inside and outside.  The window where water was entering was surrounded by a metal window well.  This type of window well typically allows rain water and/or gutter overflow to enter the well area and seep toward the window and foundation wall.   The window well was topped with a plastic cover in an attempt to stave off rainwater, but the generic cover was not fitted for that particular well and gaps were evident where rainwater could get in.  Additionally, there was a nearby downspout that allowed collected rainwater to run into the ground within a foot or two of the window, another likely reason that water was seeping in by the basement window.  

The Quality 1st Basement Solution, a SunHouse Basement Window Enclosure, would eliminate some of these issues.  It is a sturdy, light-colored window well with a bottom to prevent vegetation from growing and it is capped with a clear, well-fit cover to keep the rain out, but in this case, the SunHouse Enclosure could not do all of the work its own to be effective in preventing basement window leakage.  The waterproofing specialist needed to ensure that all nearby routes of water be moved away from the problem window area.  He proposed having the downspout discharge run several feet underground into the yard, capping the end with a camouflaged LawnScape outlet.  The sleek LawnScape is designed to disperse the water onto the lawn away from the home.

Brian’s water problems in the basement were resolved with the installation of the durable plastic SunHouse Basement Window Enclosure with sturdy, clear plastic cover in conjunction with the installation of an extended discharge line and LawnScape outlet to direct downspout water away from the home. Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to have helped!

Magazine Ad and Discount Directs Homeowner to Solution for Basement Water Intrusion in Chester, NJ

One homeowner had a large, usable area with painted walls and floor in his unfinished basement.  However, whenever there were heavy rains, water came seeping through one wall.  Over time, the repeated intrusion and wetness caused the paint to get discolored in some places while it peeled in others.  Flipping through The Home Mag one day, this homeowner decided it was time to find a solution to this rainy day recurrence and called Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule a free estimate appointment.   

Jeff Nero, a Quality 1st Basement Waterproofing Specialist, visited the homeowner, completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection of the basement, and determined the best solution to the water problems being experienced in this home.  The homeowner received a free estimate for the proposed work after the specialist answered all questions and addressed any concerns.

Ready to resolve this basement water problem once and for all, a Quality 1st Basement Systems installation crew headed by Project Foreman Esau Aquino mobilized to Chester, NJ to fix the water intrusion problem.  They installed a WaterGuard System along the problem wall (to channel and direct any water seepage to the sump pump). A SuperSump sump pump was also installed, to efficiently and reliably remove water from the basement area.  An IceGuard (designed to prevent flooding in the event of frozen discharge pipes) and a LawnScape outlet (to direct discharge water away from the home and disperse it on the lawn) were also part of the protection installed for this homeowner. 

Quality 1st Basement Systems helped to create a more secure, drier basement for this homeowner while honoring the discount offered in the magazine.  The homeowner was undoubtedly relieved to have the worries about water intrusion alleviated.

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. 

Damp, Musty Basement Fixed in Stirling, NJ

Stirling homeowner realized his sump pump had stopped working when he noticed water seepage coming through the concrete walls. A musty odor and dampness filled the basement making it uncomfortable to use so he knew this problem would only get worse if not inspected and resolved right away. He called Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free basement waterproofing estimate!

Design Specialist Ken Peare inspected the basement walls where the water had been coming through as well as other areas of the basement where the musty odor was the strongest. Ken confirmed that the sump pump in the basement was no longer working which was why the water was seeping through and over time the moisture and humidity created the musty odor.

Ken recommended the sump pump be replaced with a SuperSump pump. He also recommended he get WaterGuard to collect and redirect the water into the SuperSump. These two products together will keep the basement nice and dry!

Quality 1st Foreman Juan Garcia installed the SuperSump Pump, WaterGuard and Brightwall to make the basement a more comfortable hangout area. BrightWall is perfect for anyone who wants the appearance of a finished basement. It’s a water and mold resistant white wall to help bring in more natural light with a water vapor barrier inside.

Quality 1st was able to turn this wet, damp basement into a dry area.

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. Jeff informed the homeowner that his heating bills were rising do to the cold draft cooling the duct work which was cooling the heated air in the furnace. This was causing a delay in heating up his home and so Jeff suggested he have Quality 1st winterize his crawls space. 

Quality 1st provided a permanent solution by sealing gaps around the perimeter of the foundation by insulating the rim joist with foam insulation. TerraBlock is a puncture- resistant foam insulation will help control the temperature throughout the whole area. SiverGlo is then placed over the TerraBlock against the walls preventing air and water from coming through.

John was very surprised to see how fast his house was warming up after Quality 1st insulated his crawl space.

Pool Walk Area Lifted and Leveled to Eliminate Trip Hazard in Pequannock, NJ

Al from Pequannock wanted to fix one section of the concrete walk area around his pool that was sinking.  The unlevel area was potentially a tripping hazard.  He contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule an appointment for a free inspection and estimate.

The PolyLEVEL system is a quick fix for sinking concrete slabs.  The process involves the injection of structural grade polymers beneath concrete slabs through small holes.  This causes lifting and leveling of the area; in essence, eliminating the tripping hazard.  The environmentally friendly material used in this process is less porous than concrete and will not wash out or deteriorate in the ground.  This process is less costly than replacing the concrete and cures quicker than mudjacking.    

It seems Al found the fix he was looking for.  Quality 1st Basement Systems completed the work, eliminated the tripping hazard, and eliminated Al’s concern about the pool walk area.  

WaterGuard Inside, PolyLevel Outside: Working Together to Solve Rainwater Intrusion in Stirling, NJ

Lois, a concerned homeowner in Stirling, was wondering what to do with her basement.  When it rained, water was coming in through one of the walls.  She searched the internet to find professional help.  She enlisted Quality 1st Basement Systems, waterproofing experts, to help her find a solution, so a free estimate appointment was scheduled. 

Waterproofing specialist Ken Peare completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection of Lois’ basement.  He proposed the installation of a full perimeter WaterGuard sub-floor drainage system to capture water from the leaky wall and redirect it through channels leading to a proposed sump pump system.   This efficient SuperSump sump pump system (with its powerful cast-iron pump) has the capability of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour out of the basement.  The system includes some additional features to provide continued protection (such as the WaterWatch Alarm System and Airtight Sump Lid).

Lois also opted to have BrightWall Basement Wall Panels installed in the area of concern in her basement.  These panels provide an additional water vapor barrier while brightening the basement area with their clean, white mold-resistant surface.

Lastly, the area of water intrusion needed some attention.  Outside at ground level, Ken noticed that the concrete slab was tilting inward toward the foundation.  When it rained, it was very likely that the unlevel slab area was causing water to run-off and build up at the foundation wall, then slowly seep its way into the basement. PolyLevel lightweight foam injected beneath the sinking slab would resolve to lift the slab and stabilize it, no longer allowing water to puddle up in the area near the foundation. 

Ken provided Lois with an efficient, affordable, and reliable system to resolve the basement problem of water coming in during rains.

Full-Perimeter WaterGuard Installation and SuperSump System Installed in Lincoln Park, NJ

A couple in Lincoln Park, NJ became concerned with the dampness in their basement.  Looking for professional help, they took the advice of a friend to contact Quality 1st Basement Systems for a no-obligation, free estimate appointment.   

Basement waterproofing specialist Dan McNally completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection on the Morris County home.  He proposed the installation of a full perimeter WaterGuard sub-floor drainage system to capture water from the walls.  Additionally, where the stairs led to the outside or across doorways, TrenchLock Drains would be installed to provide a continuous channel leading to the sump pump systems.  The SuperSump and UltraSump Sump Pump Systems 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.  

Dan included an IceGuard to prevent a flood in winter months (if the discharge line freezes). A Flood Ring would also provide added protection to the basement by being installed around Carol’s water heater to drain any leakage to the WaterGuard conduit.

Quality 1st Basement Systems mobilized an installation crew to Lincoln Park.  The homeowners were left with a smooth and efficient system designed to keep their basement drier, a lifetime warranty, and likely a sigh of relief!     

Basement Water Managed by TripleSafe Sump Pump System in Gillette, NJ

James called Quality 1st Basement Systems to arrange to have a no-obligation, free estimate.  A certified waterproofing specialist visited James to complete a thorough interior and exterior inspection and provide a free estimate for the best solution to meet his needs.  The specialist proposed the installation of WaterGuard and a TripleSafe Sump Pump System to manage the influx of water to the basement that Joe was experiencing during the rain.   

A Triple Safe Sump Pump System 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 flood protection provided in each system includes a powerful cast-iron primary pump which can discharge 2,220 gallons of water per hour while the secondary pump can kick in if needed to pump an additional 3,900 gallons of water per hour out of the basement.  The battery backup sump pump is capable of pumping 11,500 gallons of water on a single battery charge.

In addition, an IceGuard Discharge Line System was included as it is designed to prevent flooding in the event of frozen discharge pipes.  A LawnScape Outlet was also included as it is designed to disperse discharge water away from the home and on the lawn. 

James was pleased with the proposed plan to meet his needs in controlling water intrusion in a section of the basement.  He was additionally happy to have Quality 1st Basement Systems complete the work, offered to him with a Preferred Customer Discount.  

Crawl Space Winterization in Denville, NJ

With winter approaching, many homeowners are trying to winterize their homes. When your crawl space isn’t properly sealed or insulated, that cold air travels into the home, making it harder for the home to warm up. A Denville, NJ homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after seeing their neighbors encapsulated crawl space.  System Design Specialist, Phil Matthews, was sent out to the home to meet with the homeowner and inspect the crawl space to provide a winterized solution.

Project Manager Jesus Alvarez- Sanchez and his crew sealed and insulated the rim joists of the crawl space. This will prevent the frigid cold air from leaking in by the sealing gaps around the foundation. By insulating the rim joists with foam insulation, we reduce the conductive heat loss. The crew installed SilverGlo Foam Insulation against the walls of the crawl space to stop air leaks while keeping the warm air inside with its built-in heat barrier. TerraBlock insulation is applied to the floors underneath CleanSpace moisture barrier to seal and protect the crawl space by isolating it from the outside conditions.

Once the projected was completely, the homeowner noticed his floors were warmer than they were previously before contacting Quality 1st. Like their neighbor, they too became a satisfied customer with a winterized crawl space. 

BrightWall Installed in Roseland, NJ

A homeowner living in Roseland, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems about wall panels they were interesting in having installed. The family was looking into putting their home on the market and although the basement was not finished, they knew it would be a big selling point. 

System Design Specialist, Phil Matthews, inspected the basement and then sat down with the family to discuss which wall panels would be the best solution for what they wanted in their basement. Phil recommended Brightwall Basement Panels because they would provide a more finished look  without having to finish the basement. These Bright white wall panels are waterproof and provide a vapor barrier to prevent moisture and mold. The homeowner felt that the crew was very professional and polite and appreciated that they cleaned up afterwards leaving not even a speck of dust behind. 

Cold Crawl Space is Fixed in Denville, NJ

The Denville, NJ homeowner had moisture and musty odor coming from their crawl space. They had cold floors and suspected mold as well which is why they contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems. We sent Systems Design Specialist, Phil Matthews, out to meet with the homeowner and inspect the crawl space.

Phil found a lot of moisture upon inspection and could feel the cold draft throughout the crawl space area. The homeowner wanted a properly insulated and encapsulated crawl space and so Phil recommended our CleanSpace System and our SaniDry Dehumidifier. He also recommended insulating the rim joist to prevent that cold air from coming through.

The SaniDry Dehumidifier allows proper circulation of dry air throughout the whole space. This will remove any odors that were in the craw space prior to the installation. CleanSpace was installed to the floors and walls to control the moisture by creating a barrier to prevent the water vapor from coming through. The rim joist were insulated, keeping the air and the floors warm. The homeowner was very pleased with the work done and is extremely happy they have a functional crawl space again.  

SmartJacks Save Sagging Beams in Parsippany, NJ Crawl Space

Parsippany homeowner noticed the floors on the first level of his home had began to sink in certain areas of his living room. The floors became noticeably uneven which concerned the homeowner that something could be wrong with his foundation.  A crawl space plays an important role in the homes structural integrity. It bears the weight through the foundation walls and support columns. As the crawl space supports began to give away the floors above began to sag. The homeowner knew that something had to be done right away before any severe damage to his foundation occurred. He called Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate.

System Design Specialist, Ken Peare, inspected the crawl space and recommended SmartJacks Crawl Space Stabilizers. SmartJacks will provide supplemental support to the failing structure of the crawl space while lifting the sagging beams back to its original position. The SmartJacks can support up to 60,000 pounds of weight, far stronger then concrete repairs. These SmartJacks are adjustable and portable in size so that they can be installed in the tightest areas of the crawl space. Quality 1st Basement Systems was able to provide a permanent solution to crawl space structural issues that were occurring in the Parsippany home.   

Wet Basement Waterproofed in Fort Lee, NJ

Cliff J. was experiencing small puddles of water everytime it poured. The standing water caused the basement to feel cold, damp and a musty odor started to form. Cliff knew his goal was to eventually finish the basement but now that he was experiencing water, he needed to put that job on hold. 

Doing some research, Cliff came across his Bergen County Service page on the Quality 1st Basements website. He began looking through reviews, before and after pictures as well as Photo Galleries. When he discovered that Quality 1st also specializes in Total Basement Finishing, he decided to call for a free estimate. 

System Design Specialist, Thomas, went out to inspect the basement and offer his best recommendation for a solution. He recommended a TripleSafe Sump Pump, for it would be the perfect size pump to handle the size of Cliffs large basement. To direct the water to the TripleSafe, the crew would install WaterGuard drainage system. He also recommended a SaniDry Dehumidifier to circulate dry air to create a more comfortable environment and prevent any moisture or musty smells. 

Cliff agreed with Thomas' recommendations and agreed to a Full Waterproofing System. Cliff felt that Thomas was very informative and his presentation educated him enough to realize that delaying this project could create serious damage down the road and he felt comfortable and in good hands with Quality 1st Basements. 

Basement Waterproofing in Long Branch, NJ

Ted from Long Branch, NJ was experiencing small puddles of water in his basement. When Googling basement waterproofing, Before & Afters from Long Branch done by Quality 1st Basements had come up. After exploring the website, Ted decided to call for a FREE estimate. Within a few short days, the System Design Specialist was out to the home to meet with Ted and inspect his basement.

Ted explained that in the past he would receive a small puddle here and there of water in his unfinished basement, but never paid much mind to it since it would dry up in a day or two. Over time that water created a musty odor and efflorescence on the walls. Quality 1st installed a full perimeter WaterGuard drainage system and SuperSump Pump to keep the basement dry. A SaniDry Dehumidifier was also installed to remove that nasty musty odor and prevent any moisture and future odors from forming. Now the Long Branch, NJ basement will stay dry, no matter how much rain Ted receives.  

Damp and cold Dirt Crawl Space in Morganville, NJ

Sam and his wife Michelle contacted Quality 1st Basements after seeing their ad in a MoneyMailer coupon they had gotten at their home. For awhile Michelle wanted to fix their crawl space since it was the nasty space in their home but could never get Sam on board. One day Sam had gone down there to check the pipes when he discovered signs of water and a terrible smell. I guess you could say that the coupon had come just in time! 

Quality 1st Basements fully encapsulated the entire crawl space to seal the space off from all the harsh out elements that could cause harm to the area.

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!
