A homeowner in Newark  had a  crawl space that had water and dampness so they contacted Quality 1st Basements for a solution. Our System Design Specialist inspected the crawl space and recommended  encapsulation to eliminate the dampness.

First,  SilverGlo was installed on the crawl space walls to boast a radiant barrier that reflects heat back into the crawl space. CleanSpace Vapor Barrier was installed on the crawl space walls and floors to seal off the crawl space and make sure no water vapor or humidity passes through. This liner is durable and is ideal for homeowners who want to use their crawl space for storage. Any air in your crawl space travels up throughout the eniter home and so its important to make sure your crawl space is clean and dry to increase the wuality of air you and your family breathe in everyday!

Job Stories From Newark, NJ
Newark, NJ Sidewalks Elevated with PolyLevel

Newark homeowners contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate on their sinking sidewalks in front and along side their apartment. The sidewalks were uneven and creating a tripping hazard where people needed to watch their step each time they walked by. The homeowners had enough and decided it was time to repair them. Thankfully they heard that Quality 1st Basement Systems had a permanent solution for this type of concern. 

Concrete Repair Specialist, Jeff Pitek measured up to 6 inches in settlement throughout the entire area. 6 inches of sinking slab can definitely cause someone harm if they aren't watching where they step. Jeff reassured the homeowners that they would not have to replace the sidewalk area since PolyLevel could raise the slabs back to their original state.  

The crew drilled small penny-size holes into each sinking slab. PolyLevel foam is injected underneath the slab where it expands and hardens raising and stabilizing the slab. PolyLevel causes no disturbance to the surrounding area of the home and within 15 minutes of the sidewalks being elevated, anyone could walk on it. The homeowners were amazed at the transformation of their sidewalk and so were the neighbors. Seeing how fast and efficient PolyLevel was, neighbors wanted Quality 1st Basement Systems to inspect their sidewalks as well. Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy they had another satisfied customer.

Basement Systems Helps With Contractor’s Flooding Misfortune in Newark, NJ

When professional contractor Don P. found that he had a problem even he couldn’t solve, he knew he needed a professional company he that could trust to come in and do the work.  Don called upon Quality 1st Basement Systems to come out and help him solve his problem.  Don met with waterproofing specialist Dan McNally who inspected the water problem.

Dan explained that Don’s water troubles were caused by water seepage coming through his basement walls and flooding his basement.  William and his crew were called in to begin the waterproofing process. CleanSpace wall covering was installed to eliminate the water seepage and effectively drain the water.  Next, a WaterGuard system to drain the water out of the home.  A TripleSafe sump pump and IceGuard discharge line were also installed to protect the basement from flooding and any weather condition or scenario. 

Don understands the joy that fixing a home can be, but he also understands the hardship of not being able to solve a problem.  At Quality 1st Basement Systems no matter the situation a problem will always be solved, and Don’s flooding problems have become a thing of the past.

Finished Basement Saved by Quality 1st Basement Systems in Newark, NJ

A finished basement is always a great room to have but when Alicia C. found that flooding could potentially ruin her basement, she needed professional help immediately.   She hopped on the internet and began researching companies that could help her.  Alicia stumbled upon Quality 1st Basement Systems and decided to give them a call.

Soon after, she was met by waterproofing specialist Jeff Nero who knew that they needed to work fast to prevent the demise of the basement.  Over the course of a single day, Wilver and his crew came in and installed CleanSpace walling, to prevent the water seepage from the walls to flood the basement.  A WaterGuard and LawnScape were then installed, which will be used to drain the current water out into Alicia’s lawn.  Finally a SuperSump sump pump and IceGuard were installed to prevent future flooding in any weather condition or situation.

With Alicia’s finished basement saved from the flooding, Alicia can now go on to refinish her basement in peace and knows that the professionals at Quality 1st Basement Systems  are there to help with any of her waterproofing needs.

We have a large slope in the living room above a re-inforcing metal column that the previous homeowners put in. I think either the collumn is too high and is causing the bump or other parts of the floor are starting to sag. It doesn't look like it was properly done and I would like to see what we could do to fix the sloping floors.
