Concrete Raising in South River, NJ

The concrete driveway of this South River, NJ home had sunk due to voids underneath the concrete. Quality 1st Basement Systems injected PolyLEVEL concrete leveling system under the concrete to raise the slabs back to their original position. PolyLEVEL is a two-part polyurethane foam that raises concrete and provides a waterproof layer under the concrete slabs. This driveway is now level, and there are no tripping hazards in this home!

A homeowner in South River was unhappy with his wet basement. It seemed that he was constantly struggling with basement flooding, which made it difficult to leave belongings in the basement. He called Quality 1st Basement Systems and a crew installed the CleanSpace Wall System. CleanSpace is a plastic liner that is fitted to walls and creates a seal that prevents water and outside air from entering. It is durable and a great choice for stone walls! Now this basement is dry and the homeowner couldn't be happier!

With help from our System Design Specialist, Tom Carrano, and Foreman, Juan Garcia, Quality 1st Basements was able to transform this musty and damp basement into a dry and healthy space! Our team installed not only a full basement waterproofing system but also removed the bottom portion of the basement walls that were damp from water seepage. Juan and his crew installed our EverLast Wall Restoration Panels that are waterproof and mold resistant. These panels help keep the basement dry by forcing any water seepage directly down to our WaterGuard drainage system. EverLast Wall Panels have built-in insulation to create a more comfortable environment for your friends and family to enjoy.

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

If you are looking for the right foundation repair company, you found it. Let's get started.

I moved into this house in October and was informed during my inspection that I would need 4 lally columns installed in my basement/crawl space. The sinking of the floor where it's most affected is noticeable upstairs. I'd like to schedule a time for someone to visit the property and provide an estimate. I look forward to hearing back from someone soon. Thank you in advance.

We get water in through the walls in our basement. We signed with a different waterproofing company and they never came to do the work and then tried to double the cost that we signed for. We would like to waterproof the basement so that we can eventually finish it.

For a house sale, a structural engineer had these items on his report. I am looking to see if any of these items are needed (first two items seem like comments), and a written estimate on the cost of repairing. Thanks 1. The floor joists at the basement are 2 x 8 supported by the exterior walls. 2 x 8 joists at the crawl space are supported by a continuous 4 x 6 girder and one (1) brick pier. 2. Exterior walls are composed of two (2) wythe brick with stucco finish only at the basement. 3. The 4 x 6 girder is undersize at the crawl space and will need to be resupported with four (4) CMU piers with footings or lally columns with footings. The piers or columns will be located with two (2) between the rear crawl space wall and existing pier and two (2) located between the existing pier and the front wall. 4. Isolated pointing is required at crawl space foundations while cracked stucco will need to be cemented at the basement.

We are looking to purchase a house and the sellers had said that the crack in the foundation is cosmetic but our inspector said that he thinks the whole foundation is cracked.. Beside the crack on the outside of the house the living room has a dip in it and the house is on a slab.. If someone could get back to me I'd like to have it looked at to make sure before purchasing a home with potential issues down the road
