A Summit homeowner was tired of her wet basement, which made the space useless. Her old sump pump system failed and flooded the basement. She called Quality 1st Basement Systems and the crew installed a TripleSafe sump pump system. The TripleSafe comes with a backup battery, which keeps it running even during power outages, and ensures flooded basements are never a problem again! Now this homeowner has a dry basement to create a recreation space for her family!

Due to the high water table of this Union County crawl space, Quality 1st Basement Systems installed WaterGuard around the perimeter of the crawl space. Traditionally, WaterGuard is used in basements, but due to the unique circumstances surrounding this crawl space, it was the perfect fit. Water was coming into the crawl space through the floor joints. WaterGuard will drain the water to sump pump that was also installed. The TripleSafe sump pump will pump the water out of the crawl space and away from the home. This crawl space has not flooded since the repair was done!

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

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

Job Stories From Summit, NJ
Reclaiming Basement Space After Enduring 10 years of Moisture in Summit, NJ

Homeowners fortunate enough to have a basement in their home sometimes realize that the valuable space is being wasted.  Plans to utilize the space, however, bring in to question how dry or moist the area is.  After all, no one wants to invest in setting up a nice entertainment area, play room, storage area, or other only to have it waste away from water intrusion or even dampness and mold.

One homeowner in Summit, NJ had basement space in her home but didn’t use it to its full potential because it was always damp and moist.  In a blink of an eye, 10 years passed and the basement remained afflicted by moisture.  By chance, she was speaking with a friend who recommended she call Quality 1st Basement Systems since they were able to help that homeowner with her basement.

Waterproofing specialist Ken Peare visited the homeowner, completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection of the home, answered Trish’s questions, and designed a basement waterproofing system that included the best options for solving this particular basement problem while meeting the homeowner’s needs.  He provided a free written estimate while there, giving Trish all of the tools needed to make a well-informed decision.

A TripleSafe sump pump was proposed as it includes an efficient primary pump, a back-up pump (in case the first one fails or if there is a need for extra pumping power), and a third battery-operated pump (designed to kick in if the power goes out).  The pump was installed and connected to a full perimeter WaterGuard to channel an incoming moisture. IceGuards were installed on the discharge drains, too, to prevent a flood in the event that the lines freeze during the colder months.

Ken also proposed the installation of an ultra-efficient SaniDry dehumidifier to remove moisture from the air and blow out a dry air into the space. This system was designed to keep the humidity levels below 50%, reducing the chance for mold to grow.  Also, new SunHouse Window Wells brought more natural light into the basement area while keeping out water, dirt, and debris. 

Lastly, to make the basement space even more comfortable and usable, Trish decided upon installation of ZenWall wall treatment and ThermalDry parquet flooring to provide a cleaner and finished look.  Neither of these specially designed products are manufactured using organic materials; they tend to decay in wetness and/or cause mold to grow, so Trish’s usable basement space would be safe and dry.

Trish lived with a mostly neglected and damp basement for 10 years, but Quality 1st Basement Systems helped her reclaim that space.  Trish could have peace of mind while enjoying her basement.
