Job Stories From Orange, NJ
Basement Waterproofing in City of Orange, NJ

A new homeowner noticed water in their basement and turned to Angie's List to find Quality 1st Basements. Quality 1st System Design Specialist, Laszlo Lenkey went to inspect the home and noticed the water in the basement. It was evident that the basement needed to be waterproofed. WaterGuard was installed underneath the floor, on top of the foundation footing to collect the water that seeps through the basement walls. A TrenchLock trench drain was installed to block unwanted ground air and gasses from entering the basement and the home. Next, the TripleSafe Sump Pump was installed to provide three levels of protection for the basement. The TripleSafe has three pumps in order to handle large amounts of water and can pump 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery! To eliminate damp, musty odors by filtering the air, a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier was installed. The SaniDry can filter mold spores, dust mite droppings, dust and other particles to make sure the air in the home is clean. Finally, IceGuard system was installed outside for an additional way for water to exit the basement. With all these products installed these new homeowners can have a dry and healthy basement, they can use. 

   

SuperSump Sump Pump Installation

Brett G. was interested in a sump pump installation for his West Orange, NJ basement.  He searched online for a trustworthy basement waterproofing company who provided this service and contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems.  They came out to check out his basement and recommend the best solution to keep his basement dry through any conditions.

Ruben Garrido and his crew came out and installed a SuperSump sump pump, UltraSump battery backup, WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system, IceGuard, and LawnScape all in a single day!  The SuperSump sump pump utilizes the Zoeller sump pump with a mechanical float switch.  This pump was chosen among nearly 50 models making it the best in the industry.  Additionally, the UltraSump battery backup sump pump ensures that no matter what happens, the pump will continue to work and make sure there is no basement flooding.

Floor Cracks and Basement Wall Water Seepage

Basement floor cracks and walls that have water seepage are a couple major problems for some homeowners in Orange, NJ.  When Jimmie S. noticed that these conditions were occurring in his basement, he contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate. 

Kenneth Peare met with Jimmie at his home and determined that the TripleSafe sump pump, Trench Drain, and WaterGuard system would keep water from damaging his basement any longer.  WaterGuard is an interior basement waterproofing system designed to sit above the footing and out of the soil so it never gets clogged and can always effectively collect and drain water to the TripleSafe sump pump.  Similar to WaterGuard, the Trench Drain keeps the area at the bottom of concrete stair leading to an exterior bulkhead door dry as well. 

Jimmie S. no longer has to worry about his basement floor cracks or water seepage from his basement walls.  Quality 1st Basement Systems solved these problems and was happy to provide him with a clean, dry basement that will last many, many years to come.

Dirt Crawl Space Moisture Control and Waterproofing

Sherwin R. had basement bilco doors in East Orange, NJ that were leaking and letting moisture into his crawl space and basement.  He searched online for a reliable waterproofing contractor in the area and contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for some help.  Basement water and moisture were the two main concerns so waterproofing expert Kenneth Peare suggested that the CleanSpace liner be installed to cover the whole space.  This 20 mil vapor barrier was perfect to cover the dirt crawl space to ensure that moisture would not collect or pass through the space. 

Additionally, Drainage Matting, an EverLast crawl space door, Silver Glo crawl space insulation panels, TerraBlock crawl space floor insulation, and new bilco doors were installed.  The EverLast crawl space door is an upgrade perfect for any crawl space.  It is completely immune to moisture damage, requires no painting, and is airtight to keep moisture, pests, and unhealthy air out of your home.  To keep the crawl space warm and dry, the TerraBlock crawl space floor insulation was installed.  It was specifically designed as a durable, long-lasting insulation product for crawl space floors.  If there are moisture or water problems, this along with our Drainage Matting will direct water away and to a sump pump.

This successful project was completed by Victor Leon and his team of qualified installers.  Sherwin R. can now rest assured that water will no longer leak in because of his new bilco doors, the CleanSpace liner, and other top of the line products.  If you are facing any of these same problems in your dirt crawl space, contact Quality 1st Basement Systems for a permanent, clean solution to last many years. 

Don’t Let Water Ruin Your Basement Walls and Floor!

Years ago Cynthia H. had a generic sump pump put in, but when water got up to her ankles in the basement- it was time for some serious help!  She didn’t know where the water was coming from so she decided to contact Quality 1st Basement Systems.  Basement waterproofing professional Rick Hacker went out to see where the water was coming from and realized that much of it was from the basement walls and floor.

To stop basement flooding, Rick recommended the SuperSump sump pump and UltraSump battery backup.  This combination would effectively pump any water out of the basement to keep it from cumulating in the future.  To combat basement moisture, a SaniDry was installed.  This energy efficient dehumidifier is perfect for keeping moisture out of large basement spaces and helps to prevent musty odors and mold/mildew growth. 

Lastly, Zen Wall and ThermalDry floor matting would keep the walls and floor free of water.  Cynthia H. can enjoy a dry, clean space that is now more warm and inviting than ever before.  Basement flooding is no longer an issue; so don’t let it be your either!

Waterproofing with EverLast Wall Restoration System

Chris determined that a SuperSump sump pump, WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system that would drain water to the sump pump, LawnScape, IceGuard to ensure water is pumped out even during harsh conditions, and the EverLast Wall system would ensure a dry basement all year round. 

The EverLast basement drywall restoration system is created with inorganic material that will not be damaged by water and will not support the growth of mold or mildew.  These panels are effective for homeowners looking to replace moldy, rotten drywall and are compatible with any of our basement waterproofing products.  Aurelus T. now no long has to worry about basement flooding and can enjoy this clean, dry space.
