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.

The drainage system also works as part of crawl space encapsulation. 

We Provide:

  • Humidity Control
  • Egress Windows
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement

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.

Job Stories From Scotch Plains, NJ
Crawl Space Finally Dry Thanks to Quality 1st Basements in Scotch Plains, NJ

Quality 1st Basements received a call from Kate B. living in Scotch Plains about water concerns she had been experiencing inside her crawl space. When her husband had went inside to check their water heater he discovered about 2 inches of water after 3 straight days of rain. She had seen Quality 1st trucks in her neighborhood before and was relieved when she knew exactly who to call. System Design Specialist, Lazlo Lenkey designed a full waterproofing system to keep the crawl space drive against leaks and floods.

Quality 1st Foreman, Wilver and his team installed WaterGuard along the footing of the crawl space, out of the mud zone to prevent clogging. Next the WaterGuard is connected to the SmartSump pump specifically designed for the crawl space with its built- in alarm system to detect any water. Both products work together to keep the crawl space dry. Next Wilver's team installed CleanSpace Vapor Barrier to the walls and floors to prevent mold and moisture. CleanSpace will keep the crawl space area healthy and increase better area quality. Overall the crawl space was completely transformed from a wet and nasty area to a clean and dry space. 

Sinking Driveway in Scotch Plains, NJ

John A. living in the Scotch Plains area of Union County contacted Quality 1st Basements about concrete settlement he were experiencing in their driveway. Gradually overtime, John noticed a 2 inch gap between where his driveway meets his front walkway. He realized that this tripping hazard could cause an injury if one of his family members were not watching where they stepped. Luckily, Quality 1st Basements had the perfect solution to remove this tripping hazard. 

Our team injected PolyLevel foam underneath the slab to raise it back to level. Once the Polylevel is underneath the slab, it expands and hardens, lifting the slab to its original state. PolyLevel permanently stabilizes the concrete slab to prevent further movement. The homeowner was amazed how quickly and efficiently the crew did the installation and how within 15 minutes of the job completion, he was able to walk directly on the slab. 

Waterproofed Basement in Scotch Plains, NJ

A new homeowner in Scotch Plains, NJ had water in their basement and contacted Quality 1st for a free estimate. System Design Specialist, Michael DiVirgilio went to inspect the basement. The homeowner's basement needed to be waterproofed so WaterGuard system was installed by Foreman, Juan Garcia and his crew. WaterGuard is the ideal choice for waterproofing because it collects the water coming in through the basement walls, while laying underneath the floor slab, with no unsightly drain around the basement. A TripleSafe sump pump was installed for added protection. The TripleSafe has three levels of protection in order to keep the basement dry. The TripleSafe has a backup battery installed in case of a power outage so the system can keep running and will pump 11,500 gallons of water on a fully charged battery. Next, a SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier was installed to eliminate damp, must odors in the basement. The SaniDry is the most high-performance dehumidifier and filtration system. It also takes up less space and can filter mold spores, dust mite droppings and dust. Next, IceGuard was installed outside to discharge water away from the home. IceGuard fits over the top of the discharge line with slits at the top to provide water with an escape route, during the winter months to prevent freezing.       

Resolving Water Intrusion During Heavy Rains in Scotch Plains, NJ

During heavy rains, a homeowner in Scotch Plains noticed water seeping up through the floor on one side of the basement.  He wanted a permanent solution to stop the wetness before it caused any severe damage to the home.  He contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule a no obligation, free estimate to have a basement waterproofing specialist visit the homeowner to complete a thorough interior and exterior inspection of the basement. 

The specialist met with the homeowner to determine the best solution to the water problems in the basement.  The plan began with the installation of a SuperSump Sump Pump System; WaterGuard (to channel and direct water seepage to the pump); a RainChute Downspout Extension (to direct water away from the home).  The SuperSump Sump Pump System is effectively designed to keep the basement dry during times of water intrusion, capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour out of the basement.

In addition, the Quality 1st Basement Systems’ waterproofing specialist included a FloodRing in the plan, installed around the hot water tank to direct leaks (or more serious amounts of water if the tank ruptures) to the pump.  The homeowner also was interested in getting a SunHouse Window Well made of durable plastic with a clear lid, allowing more sunlight to filter into the basement and preventing dirt and debris from building up.

Provided with a free estimate for the waterproofing products and work at the appointment, the homeowner was left to made a well-informed decision.  He wanted a drier basement, so he decided to have the work done. Quality 1st Basement Systems helped to create a more secure, drier basement and left the homeowner some peace of mind about her basement water worries.
