South Amboy's Basement, Crawl Space & Foundation Contractor

For over 25 years, Quality 1st Basement Systems has been the trusted basement & foundation company of South Amboy. 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

Job Stories From South Amboy, NJ
Concrete Patio Leveling in South Amboy, NJ

A homeowner in South Amboy, New Jersey noticed their concrete patio was sinking and becoming unlevel. This happens because concrete is often poured over backfilled soil. Over time, this soil settles and begins to shift, causing the concrete slab to become unlevel. This unlevel concrete can be dangerous because a friend or family member can trip and injure themselves.

The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Dylan McDonald, was able to provide an inspection and help them with a plan to fix this issue. Upon his inspection, Dylan noticed how unlevel the slab was and he suggested they use polyurethane foam to lift the slab to its original position.

Our foreman, Sean Johnson, arrived at the job site and began the process of using the PolyLevel Injection System. This is done by drilling small, penny-sized holes into the concrete and injecting the polyurethane foam into the voids underneath. The polyurethane foam has expanding properties that allow for an accurate lift and leveling of the slab. This process can be done within a day and requires minimal disruption to the concrete. PolyLevel is a lightweight, waterproof, and environmentally friendly solution that will not wash out, and will not add weight to the existing soil. 

When the job was complete, the homeowner was pleased with the outcome, and the professionalism they observed on the job. They were able to safely walk on their patio without the concern of tripping or injuries.

Concrete Patio Repair in South Amboy, NJ

A homeowner in South Amboy, New Jersey saw their concrete patio was cracking and settling. Erosion of soil under the concrete slab occurs when water runs down through the cracks. The water washes the soil out as it passes through, creating voids. These voids cause the concrete to shift and settle, which creates uneven and cracked surfaces. This excess water can increase pressure on the foundation and the walls of the home, which can cause damage. As you can see in the picture, the concrete slab has severe cracking that poses a safety hazard.

The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems through Angie's List, and our System Design Specialist, Chris Bowe, was able to provide an inspection and help them with a plan. Upon his inspection, Chris noticed the cracking and the uneven surfaces immediately. He suggested a polyurethane foam to lift and level the slab.

Our foreman, Luis Aguirre, used the PolyLevel Injection System under the slab to lift and level the slab. This is done by drilling small holes into the concrete and injecting the foam into the slab to lift and level it. PolyLevel has expanding properties that allow for an accurate lift. It is also environmentally friendly, lightweight, and waterproof so it will not wash out or add weight to the existing soil.

When the job was complete, the homeowner was satisfied with the outcome. The concrete slab was lifted to a level position, and now the concrete is no longer a safety hazard.

I am in the process of buying a house. During the home inspection they found the main girder in the crawl space to be undersized and the support columns were temporary and rusted. Also the rafters in the attic were undersized. I was hoping to have someone come out and provide an estimate for the repairs.
