A homeowner in Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey was experiencing musty smells and water seepage in their crawl space. This happens because of the soil around the home. Over time this soil settles and becomes saturated during heavy rainfall. This saturated soil creates hydrostatic pressure and pushes weight through the walls. The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Joe Mancini, was able to provide an inspection. He suggested a vapor barrier system be installed in the crawl space. Our foreman, Luis Aguirre, installed the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System throughout the crawl space. This vapor barrier system is thick like a pool liner and will keep moisture out of the crawl space. This system drains water behind it while giving the crawl space a bright and healthy.

Mold grows in humid environments, and humidity is caused by water. To prevent water from entering this crawl space, CleanSpace wall liners were installed. A SaniDry CX Crawl Space Dehumidifier was put in place to remove any and all moisture from the air preventing future mold growth.

Job Stories From Ocean County, NJ
Leaky Basement Windows in Your Toms River Home? No More!

When your basement window wells fill up with water, what’s the solution?  This is exactly the question Rick F. found himself asking when his window wells were filling up with water.  He knew that the water needed somewhere else to go and contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for some expert help.

Joe met with Rick to determine the best course of action to eliminate this window well flooding.  Water was leaking in through window cracks and then going to his French drain system.  Joe decided that the installation of an EverLast window and the SunHouse window well would most effectively solve Rick’s problems.  The EverLast window is an all-vinyl construction that is totally corrosion proof and maintenance free just like the SunHouse window well.  The SunHouse window well has a clear plastic cover that ensures that the well will never fill with rainwater or debris.

The installation went well and Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to help another valued customer.  Rick no longer has to worry about basement water due to leaky windows and can enjoy maximum natural light through his new basement window!

Foundation Repair and Basement Waterproofing in Toms River, NJ

With cracks on walls and floors of his concrete foundation, Joseph B. decided it was time to take action.  He thought that the cracks might be due to settling, but called in the experts at Quality 1st Basement Systems to discover what the root of the problem was and get it fixed as quickly and effectively as possible. 

Kenny came out to inspect Joseph’s foundation and crawl space problems and recommended reinforcers to repair the foundation which would keep it from settling any further and creating more cracks and a few other products to keep his crawlspace and clean and dry all year round.  The installation crew was prompt and professional as they installed a CleanSpace liner, SilverGlo crawl space wall insulation, TerraBlock crawl space floor insulation, a vent cover and multiple foundation reinforcers.  The CleanSpace liner provides a vapor barrier, drains water behind it, and dramatically brightens up the basement.  This product is one of a kind    

All in all, Joseph was pleased with the work and can now rest assured that his home is safe and dry with the help of Quality 1st Basement Systems.    

 

Basement Waterproofing Help in Toms River, NJ

Michael C. had an unfinished basement prone to moisture and water seepage where the basement floor and wall meet after a heavy rain.  He wanted to make sure the best, qualified professionals would waterproof his basement so he had multiple estimates done.  But, when it can down to it, he decided that Quality 1st Basement Systems was the best choice. 

John Schweitzer went to Michael’s home to check out the basement problems and concluded that it would be best to install the BrightWall system, an IceGuard, LawnScape, TrenchDrain, TripleSafe sump pump, and WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system.  The installation crew promptly arrived at his home and accomplished the installation in a short two days!  The BrighWall basement wall panel system is an excellent choice for any wet basement because it drains water, stops water vapor and even brightens the entire basement.  Additionally, the installation of the TripleSafe sump pump ensures that basement flooding will no longer be a problem.  It has three pumps that respond according to the present situation- never slowing up no matter how much water there is.      

Choosing Quality 1st Basement Systems to waterproof his basement was the best decision.  Michael can now enjoy a dry, clean basement and not worry about the possibility of flooding during a heavy rain.  His basement is all set for years to come!

Toms River Family Experiencing Sinking Floors

The Daullary family of Toms River had begun to notice that some of their flooring over the crawlspace had begun to sag in certain areas throughout their home.  Quality 1st inspectors are experts on foundation and structural repairs.  The family scheduled an appointment to meet our inspector Dan McNally, who was able to explain and demonstrate to them that the sagging floors was a result of weak beams in the crawlspace.  Dan informed the Daullary's that we would be able to support the beams with the best products.  Since the family wanted to avoid any additional headaches and dangers, they scheduled and installation with the Quality 1st team

Senior Foreman Jesus Alvarez visited the Daullary residence where he installed Smart Jacks in place of the old wooden support beams in the crawlspace.  The Smart Jacks were able to support the sagging floors and ensure that the the floors would be able to support any additional weight added and keep the customer's from experiencing additional issues to to the lack of support from the original beams.  This Toms River family has since been able to enjoy beautiful, solid flooring and is very happy with the finished result!

Many people are not aware that sinking floors can go unnoticed for many years until the problem becomes very severe.  You may think items like your piano, fish tank, or pool table are perfectly level and safe, but over time the extra weight can cause added stress on your support beams which may cause them to fail.  

Crawl Space Vapor Barrier

Forked River homeowner, Steve, contacted Quality 1st Basement System with complaints of moisture in his crawlspace possibly due to improper venting in the crawl space area. He wanted to increase the air circulation in the crawl space. 

Upon inspection by a Quality 1st Basement Systems System Design Specialist, Vaughn Shaw, discovered that the crawlspace had a small opening on the outside of the home that was sealed with a homemade wood frame. There were also 9 unsealed vents letting in unconditioned air from the outside. The crawlspace had very high humidity levels, which can cause the wood beams supporting the floors above to rot. There was also a musty smell coming from the crawl space. Vaughn also found insects and debris in the crawlspace. There were also 9 unsealed vents letting in unconditioned air from the outside.

Quality 1st Basement Systems recommended an EverLast door which would provide a secure, airtight seal to the crawlspace, as well as vent covers for the 9 vents that were constantly allowing cold air in the winter and warm, moist air in the summer into the crawlspace.  Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a SaniDry CX, which is specifically designed for compact spaces but still able to remove up to 109 pints of water a day from his 1,556 square foot crawlspace all while purifying the air in that space as well! It’s a known fact that 30 to 50% of the air that’s upstairs started out in the crawlspace. Thanks to the SaniDry this family will be able to breathe easy knowing that they are breathing in clean, dry air. The condensate pump will rid the crawlspace of the water the SaniDry is removing from the air. The condensate line was run to a discharge line outside so that Steve will never have to empty a drain pan. Lastly, the CleanSpace Crawl Space Encapsulation System has completely isolated Steve’s home from the earth (dirt crawlspace) and will continue to prevent unconditioned air and water vapor from passing through his cement block walls into the crawlspace directly below his family’s living space above.  The end result was a very happy customer and family.

Basement Waterproofing in Staten Island, NY

Edward from Staten Island spent years trying to waterproof his basement, until he finally realized he needed to call in a professional. A friend recommended Quality 1st Basement Systems. 

When Waterproofing specialist, Rick Ludlow, arrived at the home he found a vertical crack down one wall that was the major cause of the water seepage. He recommended fixing the crack with FlexSpan and installing the WaterGuard Drainage System. A SuperSump Sump Pump with Ultra Sump Battery Back up would ensure the water was removed from the basement even during a power failure. Rick also recommended an IceGuard Discharge Line which allows the system to keep working even in snow and ice. LawnScape would direct the water away from the home so the water that’s pumped out, stays out.

Quality 1st Foreman, Wilver Cardoza, and his crew arrived right on schedule and installed the waterproofing systems quickly and efficiently. They left the basement clean and dry and the homeowner was very happy. Now, this Staten Island homeowner recommends Quality 1st Basement Systems and the WaterGuard System to everyone!

Finished Staten Island Basement

When Jason from Staten Island decided to refinish his basement he was choosy about the floor. He knew a concrete slab could have water vapor issues even with a waterproofing system installed, so he called Quality 1st Basement Systems. Nick Biris, a System Design Specialist, met with Jason to explain the best options for a dry and healthy basement floor.

Nick recommended the ThermalDry Flooring System. Carpets and wood floors are never a good option for a basement. Water vapor can pass through resulting in soggy carpets, rotting wood and a perfect breeding ground for mold. ThermalDry’s unique design prevents water vapor from passing through and is unaffected by mold. The raised pegs on the bottom of the ThermalDry Flooring create an air space preventing water vapor from getting trapped. ThermalDry comes in tile, carpet, or a wood-look parquet that will suit any décor. Jason chose the Canyon Beige tile, a more neutral color that would go well with the furniture he planned to put in this basement.

Juan Garcia, a Quality 1st Flooring Installation Specialist, brought the crew out to Staten Island and had Jason’s basement floor installed in record time. Jason loves the attractive finished look of his basement and loves to show off his Quality 1st Basement floor to everyone.

Concrete Around Pool Leveled

A homeowner in Toms River knew that the uneven concrete around his pool had become too much when his six year old tripped and fell for the third time.

He had been avoiding the repair since the concrete work was custom and mudjacking would leave it looking ugly and replacement would be very expensive. Then, he discovered PolyLEVEL. Quality 1st Basement Systems used the state-of-the-art, newest technology of PolyLEVEL to quickly and easily raise the concrete. The concrete was leveled out without having to be replaced and was finished and able to be walked on before his kids even returned home from school.

Trip hazards and unsightly mudjacking signs are no longer an issue of worry for this homeowner. His pool area is safe and beautiful!

TripleSafe Sump Pump Gives Family Peace of Mind

During a steady rainfall, Anthony P. got 2 to 3 inches of water in the basement. For years he set up a portable pump to control the water, however it frequently failed so he had to babysit the pump and keep constant watch. Anthony P. and his family were unable to go on family trips because leaving the pump caused the home to flood. Even sleeping overnight was becoming difficult and they often woke up to a wet basement. Anthony and his family thought the solution was to purchase another pump, but they ended up watching two pumps a time and the basement still flooded. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a full perimeter basement drain with a TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe sump pump has three pumps, a battery back up, and a built in alarm to keep the family safe. After the first rainfall, Anthony P. said the system worked amazingly well and his basement was dry. Anthony P. called the company to say he booked a family trip.

SmartVent Flood Vents Protect Home in Normandy Beach, NJ

A homeowner in Normandy Beach, NJ was paying a lot of money for his flood insurance. His rates kept going up, and every year he worried about another dangerous storm. After Superstorm Sandy, he knew that protecting his home was important, especially since he was so close to the water. Concerned about both his safety and his spending, he called Quality 1st Basement Systems.

Jesus Alvarez-Sanchez and his installation team added SmartVent flood vents to the crawl space. SmartVent flood vents are FEMA approved and lower flood insurance rates. They are installed into the crawl space easily and quickly. Flood vents provide an emergency opening for surging flood waters. If flood waters are strong enough, they can crack and destroy a home's foundation. Flood vents open up for surging storm floods, creating a path for the water to flow through. This protects the home's foundation. Now the homeowner is saving on his flood insurance and his home will be safer during extreme weather!

Protection Against Floodwaters in Mantoloking, NJ

When Hurricane Sandy hit New Jersey’s east coast in 2012, residents and owners experienced some of the worst flood damage to their properties in years.  Many of the devastated wanted to reclaim their property and vowed to renovate or rebuild; however, they sought ways to build smarter and safer.  One contractor, Jim, worked feverishly to renovate a family’s damaged home and contacted Quality 1st to install flood vents in the crawlspace. 

John Schweitzer, a Quality 1st specialist, met with Jim the contractor to discuss how Smart Vent flood vents provide one of the best in protection during flooding.  He explained how the installation of these flood vents could save the foundation from the continuous force of water during severe weather events by providing a path for the water to flow.

Headed by Quality 1st Foreman Jonathan Neira, the crew mobilized to the home to install the seven Smart Vents.  Jim was then able to present the homeowner with a greater assurance of protection of their asset in the event of any future flooding.

Installation in Brick, NJ Keeps the Water Out But Lets the Sunshine In

Darlene M. from Brick, NJ was concerned when she saw water on her basement floor and wall.  Upon a closer look, she noticed that the water was making its entrance through the window.  Darlene needed a permanent fix so she called Quality 1st Basement Systems.

The specialist found an open-topped, weed-filled, metal window well around Darlene’s problem window.  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.  Also, the open top lets debris in and the dirt on the bottom of the well is suitable for uninvited growth. The Quality 1st Basement Solution, a SunHouse Basement Window Enclosure, would eliminate these issues.

Darlene’s water problems in the basement (and weed-filled wells) were resolved with the installation of the durable plastic SunHouse Basement Window Enclosure with sturdy, clear plastic cover. Darlene earned an additional benefit from this solution:  added brightness to the basement from the sunlight reflecting off the light-colored well enclosure!  Darlene was happy she called Quality 1st Basement Systems to resolve her problem.

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.

No More Standing Water in This Crawl Space in Manchester Township, NJ

Howard P. was concerned about his mother-in-law’s home in Manchester, NJ.  The crawl space beneath the home was filled with standing water.  Knowing this unsightly and unhealthy situation could also be damaging to the home itself, Howard headed to the internet to search for help.  He found Quality 1st Basement Systems and scheduled a free estimate appointment for a waterproofing specialist to inspect the problem area and develop a plan for resolving the wetness beneath the home. 

The planned remediation process for this crawl space involved the installation of SmartPipe drainage pipe around the perimeter, designed to collect water from foundation walls and floors of dirt crawl spaces. Additionally, the installation of a SmartSump would pump the water out of the crawl space. 

Howard P. was pleased to have Quality 1st Basement Systems effectively resolve the crawl space water problems for his mother-in-law.  No more standing water beneath the home!    

Leveling a Walkway in Manchester Township, NJ

Howard H. had one sidewalk slab that was sinking lower than the adjacent one, creating a trip hazard at his home in Manchester Township, NJ.   

He contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule an appointment to have the walkway inspected.  PolyLEVEL Professional Dori Novick visited Howard, inspected the sinking slab, and explained the PolyLEVEL process.  Structural grade polymers are injected beneath the slabs through small holes to lift and level them.  The material, less porous than concrete, would not wash out or deteriorate.  Additionally, the walkway would experience only minimal disruption as PolyLEVEL cures within a quick 15 minutes. 

Howard H. knew that PolyLEVEL would be the quickest, easiest, and best fix to repair the sinking slab, to once again have a safe walkway.  Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to help!     

The Cure for a Bowing Foundation Wall and Old Basement Windows in Manchester Township, NJ

Sherianne needed new basement windows to replace the old, worn and leaking windows. She contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate.  While basement specialist Kenny Tramutola was inspecting the basement in preparation for the windows, he saw a very noticeable bowing of one wall.  Luckily for the homeowner, Kenny was knowledgeable about foundation problems and pointed out that the wall needed reinforcement before it completely failed. 

Kenny suggested the PowerBrace system of support as it could be considered the best resolution for the issues with Sherianne’s basement wall.  The corrosion-resistant system can mean more than support; it can potentially improve the wall over time by means of its patented system of tightening.  Kenny also suggested the installation of wood support beams for added support.     

The steel beams immediately stabilized the home and prevented the wall from further movement.  Sherianne felt assured that her foundation was secure with this solution.  She was also pleased to have some new, airtight, all-vinyl energy-efficient replacement windows to brighten up her basement.

Stabilizing a Crawl Space Foundation with SmartJacks in Point Pleasant, NJ

Homeowner Mike S. from Point Pleasant Beach, NJ was concerned about his cinder block foundation.  The house above a crawl space seemed to be sinking in some spots but raising up in others.  He called Quality 1st Basement Systems to have a foundation specialist visit his home to inspect the areas of concern and provide him with a free estimate for repairs.

Foundation specialist Dan McNally completed a thorough inspection of the crawl space as well as the main floor, taking notice of some cracking in the ceiling where the kitchen wall meets it.  Indicators of a sinking and settling foundation, Dan proposed the installation of a wood supplemental beam and the SmartJack Support System, which includes corrosion-resistant galvanized steel adjustable support columns that can support over 60,000 lbs.  SmartJacks provide immediate and permanent stabilization.  They can also restore stability and level sloping and sagging floors.    

Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to provide this long-term solution.  The SmartJacks restored stability to the home and provided relief from worry for Mike about his home’s foundation!   

Separating the Home from the Earth with Encapsulation in Manahawkin, NJ

Roy R. was hoping to eliminate dampness and moisture problems in his crawlspace.  He flipped through a coupon magazine and found an ad for Quality 1st Basement Systems.  The ad promised a no-obligation, free estimate by a waterproofing specialist.  An appointment was scheduled to have waterproofing specialist John Schweitzer out to Manahawkin to inspect the problem area and develop a plan for resolving the wetness beneath Roy’s home.

The best solution was proposed for Roy’s crawl space: to separate the home from the earth.  This process would involve encapsulating the crawl space area.  First, CleanSpace Drainage Matting would be installed on the floor to eliminate sitting water and direct it to a drainage system.  Next, the installation of SilverGlo Insulation Panels for the walls would reflect heat back into the crawl space for energy efficiency while providing a water vapor barrier. Lastly, a durable CleanSpace liner would installed to further prevent vapor from making its way into the crawl space and to complete the encapsulation.

The next step involved sealing the vents with Vent Covers, installing The Turtl access well, and installing a SaniDry CX.  The SaniDry CX is a low profile, energy efficient air filtration system which dries out the air and filters indoor allergens.  It is also designed to maintain a low relative humidity to prevent mold growth.   

Once the installation was completed, no longer was the crawl space beneath Roy R.’s home damp and dank.  Roy R. found a brighter, drier area isolated from the earth.  His home would be healthier; He would thereafter be able to experience energy-savings with a warmer main level of his home and a healthier, moisture-free crawl space!   

Fixing Storm Damaged Foundation and Crawlspace in Tuckerton, NJ

The Jersey shore took a big hit during Hurricane Sandy.  Many homeowners scrambled to repair while sadly, some witnessed the destruction of what was left of their homes.  What the storm did for Tuckerton homeowner Anthony D. was motivated him to seek preventative measures to protect his asset from future damage by Mother Nature.  He wanted to keep water from building up in the crawl space beneath his home.  Also, he worried that the storm water intrusion had caused some further settling of his home, affecting the foundation. 

Anthony turned to the internet to search for help.  He found Quality 1st Basement Systems and scheduled a free estimate appointment for a waterproofing and foundation specialist to inspect the crawl space area.  Quality 1st developed a plan for resolving the future threat of water beneath the home and they worked with engineers to plan the rebuilding and securing of the foundation.

The planned remediation process for this crawl space involved 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 and the CleanSpace liner would help seal the earth from the home, to keep moisture from seeping in.  Additionally, the installation of a SmartSump would pump the water out of the crawl space.  The installation of an IceGuard would prevent flooding in the event that low temperatures cause the discharge line to freeze.  Also, a LawnScape outlet placed at the end of the discharge line would help disperse water away from the home.  SilverGlo Wall Panels would further prevent moisture in the crawlspace when installed on the walls, and a SaniDry CX air filtration system would maintain low humidity levels in the problem area.  

SmartVents strategically installed in the crawl space would allow flood waters to move through the crawl space area rather than threaten to weaken the foundation.  The failing foundation would be secured through installation of a series of galvanized steel GeoLock Wall Anchors, designed to brace the wall and prevent further movement for a permanent solution.    

Anthony D. resolved to not only fix his current crawl space and foundation problems, but to enlist the help of Quality 1st to install a sense of security through products and work which would protect his home from future storm damage.  Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to meet Anthony’s needs with the best solutions available!

Sunken Slabs Around Pool in Barnegat Lifted and Leveled with PolyLEVEL

Sean from Barnegat wanted to fix concrete slabs around his pool that were sinking.  The unlevel area was potentially a tripping hazard.  He searched on-line and found Quality 1st Basement Systems and scheduled an appointment for a free 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 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.    

Sean found the fix he was looking for.  Quality 1st Basement Systems completed the work and since PolyLEVEL cures within 15 minutes, Sean’s concrete slabs around the pool were ready to be walked on again in almost no time!

Preventing Mold Growth in a Barnegat, NJ Crawl Space

Quality 1st Basement Systems helped a customer resolve his crawl space water problems, and good news travels!  When that customer’s son, Phil, was purchasing a home in Barnegat which had a dirt floor crawl space with some mold growth, Quality 1st Basement Systems was called to the rescue. 

Mold grows in humid conditions and it needs organic material to grow on.  In order to resolve Phil’s crawl space problems, the solution came in the form of first isolating the house from the earth with a CleanSpace 20 mil thick plastic liner.  This liner is manufactured with an anti-mold and bacteria growth material right in the plastic!  Then, to reduce humidity in the area, Quality 1st Basement Systems’ specialist also proposed sealing off the vents with vent covers, installing a new, airtight Everlast Door, and installing a SaniDry CX dehumidification system.  All of the products would be working together to thereby prevent mold growth. 

With the project completed, Phil’s goal was met with the prevention of mold growth.  Additionally, the encapsulation and dehumidification system would provide not only a drier, less humid crawl space but also a warmer main level of his home with energy-cost savings!

PolyLevel Lifts Sinking Slabs Around a Pool in Toms River, NJ

Mr. M. from Toms River, NJ had a concrete patio area around his pool which was beginning to sink.  It was potentially a trip hazard due to the difference in height of the slabs.  One day, while listening to the radio, Mr. M. heard about Quality 1st Basement Systems.  After further research and more curiosity, he wondered if the PolyLevel process advertised for lifting and leveling concrete could be the solution he was searching for, so he called Quality 1st and scheduled an appointment for a free estimate.

Certified PolyLEVEL professional Maurice Robinson visited Mr. M. and inspected the concrete area around the pool.  He explained how the PolyLEVEL system is a quick fix for sinking concrete slabs.  The process involves the injection of structural grade polymers beneath the concrete slabs through small holes, lifting and leveling the area.  The environmentally friendly material used in this process is less porous than concrete and will not wash out or deteriorate in the ground.    

Mr. M. decided to have Quality 1st Basement Systems complete the work and, since PolyLEVEL cures within 15 minutes, the concrete area around his pool was soon no longer a tripping hazard and ready to be walked on again in almost no time!  

Crawl Space in Forked River, NJ Gets Vapor Barrier System

This Forked River crawl space was damp, cold and welcomed you with a musty odor every time you went inside. Over time with the water coming in, the insulation got wet and started to fall out of the ceiling. The homeowner knew that if left untreated, it would eventually cause more damage to the crawl space and the home. Quality 1st Basement Systems received their call, and sent System Design Specialist, Mike Jersey to inspect the damage and provide a solution.

Mike Jersey noticed high humidity, water stains along the walls and a draft coming in through multiple crawl space windows. The insulation was all over the floor of the crawl space and hanging from the ceiling as well. Mike recommended a Vapor Barrier System to prevent water and anything else that would cause damage to the crawl space and to the home.

The Quality 1st crew removed the insulation and dirt, cleaning the crawl space out to properly install the Vapor Barrier System. CleanSpace Drainage Matting was installed to the floor of the crawl space providing a channel for the water flooding in underneath the liner preventing standing water. CleanSpace is installed directly over the matting which prevents water vapor and humidity from passing through. This bright white liner provides a cleaner, brighter look while keeping the crawl space dry. SilverGlo was installed as a radiant barrier which helps reflects heat back into crawl space. Vent Covers were installed to prevent outside air, pests, and moisture from coming through the vents.

Each product works together to provide the crawl space with the up most protection against water, humidity and moisture. Now the homeowner can rest easy knowing that water will never find its way back into the crawl space again. 

Vapor Barrier Saves Crawl Space in Manahawkin,NJ

Manakawkin, NJ homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to installed a Vapor Barrier System in their crawl space. This dirt crawl space was filled with several inches of water and had a cold draft coming in from several crawl space windows. The basement began to get the cold draft as well since the entrance to the crawl space was in the basement.  From time to time the homeowner could hear animals running around in there when downstairs and wanted to completely seal off the crawl space.

System Design Specialist, Jeff Nero met with the homeowner and did a full inspection of the crawl space. Jeff was aware that the homeowner had done their research and knew that they specifically asked for a Vapor Barrier System and so he was able to thoroughly explain the system and answer any additional questions they had.

When it came to the installation process, the homeowner was horrified to see all the debris, dirt and water that needed to be removed from their crawl space. Every door and vent was covered and sealed to remove any drafts. The crew then began removing any water sources by installing a TripleSafe sump pump to eliminate flooding. Next, the crawl space must be encapsulated and insulated to stop moisture from passing through the floors and walls. CleanSpace, a white, durable liner, is applied over the walls and floors to insulate the crawl space. This liner will protect the structure of the home because it makes it the crawl space mold and moisture resistant. Lastly a SaniDry Dehumidifier is installed to keep the crawl space dry by properly circulating dry air throughout the entire area.

The homeowner was thrilled at the transformation of the crawl space and relieved that they can rest easy knowing it’s protected.

As you can see in the picture, the walkway is sinking and becoming unlevel. Unleveled concrete walkways pose a huge tripping hazard. A home is supposed to be a safe place, not a place where a homeowner has to worry about their family tripping to get into their home.

The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Jeffrey Pitek, provided an inspection and helped them with a plan to fix this issue. He suggested they use polyurethane foam to lift the concrete back to its original position.

Our foreman, Luis Aguirre, used the PolyLevel Injection System which is a polyurethane foam that has expanding properties for an accurate lift and leveling of the slab. This is done by drilling small holes into the slab and injecting the foam into the voids under the concrete. This foam is a lightweight and waterproof solution that will not add weight to the existing soil. Now the homeowner does not have to worry about tripping over their walkway to get into their home.

Concrete Walkway Repair in Barnegat, NJ

A homeowner in Barnegat, New Jersey saw that their walkway was shifting and becoming unlevel. This happens because concrete is sometimes poured over loose backfilled soil. Over time, this soil settles and creates voids under the concrete slab. Another common issue is the erosion of soil under the slab. Water runs down through the cracks in the concrete and washes the soil out as it passes through. This can be a dangerous safety hazard because a friend or family member can walk on this walkway, trip and fall, and hurt themselves.

The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Joe Mancini, helped them with a plan to fix this issue. He suggested they use a polyurethane foam under the concrete slab, to lift and level it.

Our foreman, Sean Johnson, used the PolyLevel Injection System to be injected under the slab. This is done by drilling small, penny-sized holes into the slab and injected the polyurethane foam into the voids. The foam has expanding properties that will lift the slab and make it even. PolyLevel has minimal disturbance and does not disrupt the existing concrete. It is also environmentally friendly, lightweight, and waterproof. Now, the homeowner can walk into their home safely without tripping.

Crawl Space Waterproofing in Beach Haven, NJ

A homeowner in Beach Haven, New Jersey noticed water seeping in through their crawl space walls and floors. This can happen because the poorly compacted soil around the home becomes saturated. This saturated soil creates hydrostatic pressure which pushes water through the walls and floors. This can have many negative effects such as dust mites, mold growth, musty smells, pests, increased energy bills, and poor air quality. This poor air quality can travel into the upper levels of the home and affect the homeowner's health badly. As you can see in the picture, the crawl space is dirt and can easily attract moisture and pests.

The homeowner made a call to Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, JC Gibriano, was able to provide an inspection and help them find a solution to this issue. Upon his inspection, JC noticed the moisture in the crawl space along with the musty smell. He suggested a vapor barrier system to seal the crawl space from the earth.

Our foreman, Juan Garcia, installed the CleanSpace Vapor Barrier System which is thick and durable like a pool liner and is mold-proof and water-proof. The installation process requires minimal equipment and disturbance and is done by removing rocks and uneven surfaces. Then, the foreman carefully fits and installs the liner, and permanently holds it in place with drilled-in fasteners and spikes.

When the job was complete, the homeowner was pleased with the results. Their crawl space was given a bright and fresh appearance, giving them the perfect storage space. They no longer have to worry about mold growth or moisture in their crawl space anymore.

Foundation Repair in Little Egg Harbor, NJ

A homeowner in Little Egg Harbor, New Jersey was experiencing foundation settlement. Their walls were cracking and separating in the foundation. This happens because over time, the soil supporting the home changes, becoming very soft or very dry. This leads to the soil weakening and affecting the home's foundation. If gone unrepaired, it can lead to the home needing a bigger repair in the future, which will be more costly.

The homeowner called Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Joe Mancini, was able to provide an inspection and help them find a solution to fix this issue. Upon his inspection, Joe noticed how the foundation was settling and cracking. Joe suggested a pier system that will stabilize the home to its original position.

Our foreman, Jonathan Neira, arrived at the home and started to fix the home's foundation. He installed the Steel Push Pier System under the home. This is done by first removing the soil around the foundation's footing and placed a specially engineered bracket. Then, the steel pier sections are hydraulically driven through the bracket to bedrock. Then, the weight of the home is transferred through the steel bracket and onto the new bedrock, lifting the home back to its original position. The soil is backfilled to hide the entire system, and the foundation repair is fully complete.

When the job was complete, the homeowner was pleased with the outcome. Their home was stabilized and they did not have to worry about any costly repairs to fix the foundation settlement.

Damp Crawl Space Sealed in Seaside Heights, NJ
