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:

  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement

Job Stories From Somerset, NJ
Wet Basement in Somerset, NJ

Quality 1st Basements received a call from Mary in Somerset, NJ about water concerns she was experiencing in her basement. Keashan, our customer service representative was able to schedule an appointment right away with our System Design Specialist, Chris Bowe who was in the Somerset area. Chris did a full inspection of the basement and reassured Mary that Quality 1st was here to help.

Foreman, Wilver and his team installed a full waterproofing system which included a WaterGuard and TripleSafe Sump Pump and a SaniDry Dehumidifier to keep the basement dry and healthy. Our WaterGuard drainage system is installed out of the mud zone to prevent any clogging of the drain. The WaterGuard collects the water and directs it to the TripleSafeSump pump. Our SaniDry Dehumidifier circulates dry air throughout the basement area to prevent any musty odors or moisture from forming. 

Cracked Foundation in Somerset, NJ

A homeonwer was experincing bowing walls in the basement of his Somerset, NJ home. The walls were pushed inward by either expansive soil or hydrostatic pressure. After awhile cracks began to form in the center and in the corners of the walls. Worried that these issues would severely impact the foundation of the home, they called Quality 1st Basements for a solution. 

Senior Design Specialist, Jeff Nero, did a full inspection of the foundation and recommended GeoLock Wall Anchor System to repair the wall. The Wall Anchors are installed to prevent further movement of the walls, stabilizing them permanently. The Wall Anchors are installed with minimal disruption to the lawn and won't damage the interior of your unfinished or finished walls. 

Nasty, Damp Crawl Space in Somerset, NJ

John D. from Somerset, NJ had water in his crawl space every time it rained. Afraid that the water would cause serious issues in the crawl space, he contacted Quality 1st Basements to unlimited the problem. John called for a free estimate appointment and was looking forward to meeting his System Design Specialist, Mike D.

Mike did a full inspection of the crawl space and noticed standing water in the middle of the area. He noticed water seepage along the corners which created an overall cold and damp environment. With the help of Mike, foreman Wilver and his crew were able to completely waterproof the crawl space. Wilver's team installed a SmartSump pump that was specifically designed for the crawl space. It has a built in alarm system that notifies john right away if it detects water. John was so pleased with the work and relieved that his crawl space no longer gets water. Now John recommends us to all his friends and family. 

Sinking Front Walk in Somerset, NJ

Jane S. from Somerset, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basements after noticing her front walkway had sunk causing a huge gap. This created a tripping hazard right before her porch and she was concerned that someones foot would catch the gap and end up getting hurt. Her front walk area had a nice gray color too it and replacing the slab was therefore not an option.

Luckily she found a concrete lifting & leveling ad by Quality 1st Basements in her Clipper magazine and decided to call for a free estimate. Foreman, Arturo and his team drilled small penny-size holes into the sinking slab in preparation to inject PolyLevel foam underneath. PolyLevel is injected underneath the slab, to raise and stabilize the concrete. The homeowner was relieved that Quality 1st Basements could raise the slab without having to replace it. 

Walkway Lifted and Foundation Supported in Somerset, NJ

Craig in Somerset had a walkway to his home that settled several inches.  It was a safety hazard and it also became a problem for rainwater drainage.  He had heard about Quality 1st Basement Systems’ process of PolyLEVEL and was interested in comparing that to mudjacking. 

Maurice Robinson inspected Craig’s walkway.  He explained how the PolyLEVEL process would provide a better resolution than mudjacking.  He described how structural grade polymers are injected into the void beneath the slabs to lift and stabilize them.  This material is less porous than concrete (it is waterproof!) so it will not wash out or deteriorate.  Additionally, PolyLEVEL cures within 15 minutes while mudjacking can take several days to cure.  Craig was convinced that PolyLEVEL was a better solution.

Craig was also concerned with his foundation.  He knew that Quality 1st Basement Systems worked on foundation repairs, so he had Maurice inspect his crawl space.  The shimming used to support the beam was not a stable, permanent fix, so Maurice proposed the installation of SmartJacks, galvanized steel adjustable support columns.  They provide immediate and permanent stabilization.

Once Octavio Alvarez and his crew were finished with the PolyLEVEL and SmartJack installation, Craig was able to rest assured that he wouldn’t have any more tripping hazards on the front walkway and would have no worries about the integrity of his foundation.

For first time in 23 at this townhome condo I have water covering my small unfinished 230 sq fit basement floor. The source of the water is undetermined. (It's not the condensate pump.) There is a hole in the floor for an installation of an initial sump pump (it's never been used). I'm told it's a "French drain." Neither of my connected neighbors has water in their basements. It seems I need a sump pump. I also need the water removed.
