ThermalDry Floor Installation in Rutherford, NJ

The basement floor showed signs of past water damage. Quality 1st Basement Systems sent a team to install ThermalDry Flooring. ThermalDry is made up of modular plastic tiles, which are raised on pegs to create a space beneath the floor. This allows water and cold air to flow smoothly above the subfloor but does not allow the cold or moisture to penetrate. ThermalDry comes in a variety of colors and styles so it is easy to customize your basement's look!

Testimonial by Tony F. from Rutherford, NJ

Rutherford's Basement, Crawl Space & Foundation Contractor

For over 25 years, Quality 1st Basement Systems has been the trusted basement & foundation company of Rutherford. Our high quality work and exclusive access to over 28 patented products set us apart in the home improvement industry. When working on basements, crawl spaces and foundations we are the safe choice for your home.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

Basements and crawl spaces consistently have issues with water, mold and rot. To prevent these problems from occurring in the future we install a patented interior drainage system. Water and moisture that enters the basement is captured, controlled and safely removed via the basement drain before you ever notice it. The drainage system also works as part of crawl space encapsulation. 

We Provide:
  • Basement Waterproofing
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement
  • Clean Protected Crawlspace
  • Protection against Mold
  • Improved Home Value

We also fix basement leaks with permanent basement leak repair. With our system in place there is no need to fear basement flooding. We want your basement to be safe for years so our work comes with a transferable lifetime dry-basement warranty. 

Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

Whatever the issue we are the trusted foundation repair contractor. Our foundation repair experts will visit your home, identify the issue and recommend the right solution. We provide permanent foundation repairs using non-invasive methods. There is no need to tear up your entire yard to fix the foundation.

Repairs for:
  • Wall Cracks
  • Bowing Walls
  • Uneven Floors
  • Settling Foundations
  • Uneven Concrete Slabs       
We Use: 
  • Wall Anchors
  • I-Beam Wall Braces
  • Foundation & Slab Piers
  • Crawl Space Jack Posts

Along with general foundation problems we also fix sunken concrete slabs using PolyLEVEL. PolyLEVEL is an expansive polyurethane foam that fills in the gaps beneath the sunken concrete and lifts it back up to a level position. It also does not erode or wash away. If you are looking for the right foundation repair company, you found it. Let's get started.

Job Stories From Rutherford, NJ
Crawlspace Encapsulation in Rutherford, NJ

Quality 1st Basement Systems received a call from a homeowner in Rutherford, NJ about their crawlspace. The homeowner was interested in encapsulating their crawlspace, so we sent our System Design Specialist, Mike D., to go inspect the area. Mike arrived at the home, on time, and inspected the crawlspace. Luckily, there were no signs of dampness and humidity. The homeowner wanted to encapsulate their crawlspace and be prepared for any future damage. Mike then suggested our CleanSpace Moisture Barrier would be the perfect solution. 

The CleanSpace Moisture Barrier is the heart and soul of the crawlspace system. It prevents water vapor and humidity from passing through and is also mold resistant. The best feature about the CleanSpace Barrier is that it can also transform your dark and damp crawlspace into a bright-white and clean room. In other words, the homeowner can use their crawlspace as an extra storage room if needed. 

After our crew installed the CleanSpace Barrier, the homeowner was completely thrilled. Their crawlspace was fully transformed and protected against any water issues. They were guaranteed full satisfaction.

Had flooding with recent storms in my basement. Before putting new flooring down, wanted an expert to check to see how the water got in and if anything should be done before we re-set flooring in a finished basement.

I have a basement that is always damp and musty. I also have a cellar entryway that got a lot of water with the recent storm. That entryway and door typically get a little water at times. I'll be receiving an insurance settlement related to the recent storm and I want to fix all of my problems once and for all. I'd love an estimate for whatever it is that I need to do that whether it's a sump, french drain, waterproofing, dehumidifiers, etc, etc.
