Job Stories From Trenton, NJ
Pool Patio Lifted in Hamilton, NJ

Don't let tripping hazards put a damper on your pool party this summer! This homeowner in Hamilton, New Jersey noticed their pool patio was sinking and settling. This happens because concrete is poured over poorly compacted soil. Over time, this soil settles and creates voids underneath the concrete. If this went without repair, someone could have injured themselves!

The homeowner made a call to Quality 1st Basement Systems and our customer service representative booked them an appointment with our System Design Specialist, Alvin Reed. A few days later, Alvin arrived at the home and began his thorough inspection. Alvin suggested they use polyurethane foam to lift and level the concrete. 

Our foreman arrived at the job site and began the process of installing the PolyLevel Injection System. This is done by drilling tiny holes into the slab and injecting the foam into the voids underneath. PolyLevel is a lightweight and environmentally friendly solution that will not add weight to the soil.

When the job was complete, the homeowner was satisfied with the result. They were able to safely walk around their pool without the concern of tripping hazards!

Garage Floor Repair in Trenton, NJ

A homeowner in Trenton, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after noticing their concrete garage floor was sinking three inches. We had our concrete specialist, Jeff Pitek, inspect the home and provide a quote for the homeowner. 

Jeff arrived at the home, on time, and inspected the garage floor. Luckily, there were no cracks, so Jeff suggested our Polylevel Injection would be the perfect repair method for the homeowner. Unlike mudjacking, polylevel is durable and provides a long-lasting solution. It is waterproof, environmentally friendly, and takes fifteen minutes to heal before being fully intact. The installation process is less messy and is quick to install. 

After our crew completed the repair project, the homeowner was happy to see their garage floor fully intact again. 

Waterproofing Solution in Trenton, NJ

Quality 1st Basement Systems received a call from a homeowner in Trenton, NJ about their basement. The homeowner was experiencing water seepage in their basement and knew there was a problem with their home. After speaking with our customer service representative, an appointment was scheduled for our System Design Specialist, Jeff Pitek

Jeff arrived at the home, on time, and inspected the basement. During his inspection, he noticed there were small horizontal cracks in the basement walls, allowing water to seep inside. Jeff then recommended our WaterGuard French Drain System and Triple Safe Sump Pump would be the perfect solution for the homeowner. Our WaterGuard French Drain System is designed to collect any water seeping into the basement and direct it to the Triple Safe Sump Pump where it will be pumped away from the basement. With these products combined, the basement will stay fully dry and secure throughout the year. 

Since the installation, the homeowner has not experienced any other issues with their basement and is fully satisfied with Quality 1st Basement Systems. 

Concrete Patio Lifted in Trenton, NJ

This homeowner in Trenton, New Jersey saw their concrete patio was sinking and settling. This occurs because the concrete is poured over poorly compacted soil. Over time, this soil settles and creates voids underneath. This can be dangerous because someone can trip over the concrete and injure themselves.

The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after seeing our ad on Facebook. Our customer service representative was able to book them an appointment with our System Design Specialist, JC Gibriano, and he provided an inspection. Upon his inspection, JC noticed how the concrete was becoming unlevel, and he suggested they use polyurethane foam to lift the concrete.

Our foreman, Luis Aguirre, started the process of using the PolyLevel Injection System. This is achieved by drilling tiny holes into the concrete and injecting the foam to fill the voids underneath. This system can be injected within a day and requires minimal disruption to the concrete. PolyLevel is a lightweight, environmentally friendly solution that will not add weight to the existing soil.

When the job was complete, the homeowner was happy that their patio was repaired. They did not have to worry about tripping hazards and could safely walk on the patio.

Luckily, Quality 1st Basement Systems came in and offered the homeowner a solution that would eliminate this problem for good. 

Quality 1st Basement recommended the Polylevel Injection method would be the perfect repair solution.

Polylevel also has a lifting capacity of 4,000lbs and will never wash out from the water. 

After the installation was done by our crew, the homeowner was very happy to see their porch fully repaired. 

Waterproofing a Basement in a Commercial Property in Trenton NJ

Sam, a repeat caller of Quality First Basement Systems, had one of our project design specialists come out to give him a quote for basement water proofing.  There was water getting into his warehouse/office basement and we provided him with a proposal to install a sump pump and basement drainage system. Our installation team installed our WaterGuard System, which catches the water before it enters the basement and brings it to a sump pump. They also installed our SuperSump sump pump system, which will pump the water outside and away from the foundation, keeping the basement dry for years to come.

Repaired Sunken Patio Area in Trenton, NJ

Trenton homeowners were experiencing lifting and settling slabs on their backyard patio. The unevenness was causing their patio furniture to move and tilt when they used it. They knew that the patio needed to be repaired but they wanted to find a solution that would prevent them from having to replace it. Luckily, a neighbor of theirs knew someone who was a Concrete Repair Specialist for Quality 1st Basement Systems and decided to call for a free estimate. Concrete Repair Specialist, Tom Carrano, met with the homeowners and upon inspection measured 3 inches of settlement in some areas of the the patio and up to 5 inches in others. 

Tom, explained that PolyLevel is a foam solution that is injected underneath the concrete slab. Once underneath, the foam begins to expand and harden, raising the slab back to its original level. Each slab was raised, completely elevating the entire patio area. 15 minutes after the crew was finished they helped the homeowners put their patio furniture back outside. They appreciated the crews help with the furniture and were pleased that they could use their patio right away! 

From Basement To Beautiful in Trenton, NJ

Homeowners living in the beautiful area of Trenton, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after seeing an advertisement for basement finishing. They had spoken about finishing their basement before but it was never a top priority until they found out they were expecting. With a third child now in the mix, the playroom upstairs would have to be turned into a nursery, leaving the kids without an area to play in. Quality 1st Basement Systems sent Total Basement Finishing Expert, Thomas Nehme out to help design a brand new play room area for the children in the basement. 

After Thomas did a full inspection of the basement area, he began working together with the homeowners to design the perfect area for their children. The homeowners picked the ThermalDry Flooring because they liked having the option to replace one individual section of the carpet if it stains. The fact that the flooring has pegs underneath it allowing air flow to keep the floor up to 10 degrees warmer was a plus for mom! Next, EverLast Wall Restoration was installed which are basement wall panels with built-in insulation. 

The homeowners were amazed at their basement transformation! Quality 1st was able to turn their dark unfinished basement into a beautiful, bright play room area for their children to enjoy. 

SuperSump Sump Pump Installation

Homeowner Lisa M. was getting water in her basement during heavy rains.  She searched for a permanent waterproofing solution and contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for their expert advice.  Bruce Kaminsky, waterproofing specialist, met Lisa M. at her Trenton, NJ home and recommended the SuperSump sump pump, UltraSump battery backup, the WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system, IceGuard, and LawnScape. 

The SuperSump sump pump system is the finest sump pump on the market.  It pumps 2220 gallons per hour at an 8-foor discharge head quietly and efficiently.  This pump also has an airtight lid that keeps sump pump odors in and any bugs or pests out.  If for any reason the pump failed to turn on, the UltraSump batter backup sump pump system would pick up to ensure a dry basement.  Whether there is a power outage or a circuit breaker is tripped, your basement will still stay dry.

Thanks to Wilver Cardoza and his qualified waterproofing crew, these products were installed in one short day!  Lisa M. can now enjoy a clean, dry, and healthy basement for years to come.  

Complete Waterproofing with CleanSpace Walling

When basement water was causing problems for Andrew D. and Cathy P. in their Trenton, NJ home, they knew if was time to call Quality 1st Basement Systems for some help.  Waterproofing professional Kenny Tramutola went out and talked to Cathy.  She told him that they were getting a bad smell from one of the walls and that it was getting increasingly worse.  Kenny suggested CleanSpace walling, a SaniDry dehumidifier, and the WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system.

CleanSpace walling is made of a heavy, durable plastic liner.  It not only works as an effective vapor barrier, but also creates a dramatically brighter basement space.  Your dark basement will have a whole new light after this basement wall system is installed.  The SaniDry dehumidifier is energy efficient and keeps relative humidity at a low percentage in your basement.  This will prevent mold and mildew from growing, eliminate musty odors, and protect your family’s health. 

About a year after Andrew D. and Cathy P.’s basement was waterproofed, they contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems when more water was coming into their basement during heavy rains.  A SuperSump sump pump was then installed to ensure a dry basement all the time.  Now they no longer have to worry about basement moisture or water no matter what the conditions are. 

Leaky Basement Doors? We have the Solution for You!

Bilco basement doors are sometimes the source of basement water.  For Michael D.’s Trenton, NJ basement, this seemed to be the problem.  He contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate and a permanent solution for his leaky basement doors.  Waterproofing expert Kenny Tramutola went out to his home and came up with a comprehensive waterproofing solution. 

Juan Garcia and his team went out to install the SuperSump sump pump with the UltraSump battery backup system that will keep the basement from flooding no matter what the conditions are.  This battery backup sump pump will turn on if there is a power outage, if the circuit breaker is being tripped, or even if the primary motor fails.  No matter what happens, be assured that your basement is always dry!  To address the leaky bilco basement doors, a TrenchDrain system was installed.  This is a drainage channel installed at the base of the exterior stairway to capture any water leaking in and direct it to the sump pump and out of the basement. 

Michael D. no longer has to worry about a wet basement.  With the help of Quality 1st Basement Systems, his basement will by dry for years to come!
