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!

Job Stories From Union, NJ
Unlevel Concrete Repair in Union, NJ

A homeowner in Union, New Jersey noticed their concrete patio was unlevel and sinking. This happens because the soil is often poorly compacted and loose. Over time, this loose soil creates voids under the concrete. This can be a danger because a friend or family member could trip and hurt themselves on the concrete. 

The homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems and our System Design Specialist, Dane Cuccinello, was able to provide an inspection and help the homeowners find a plan to fix this issue. Upon his inspection, Dane noticed how unlevel the concrete was. He suggested a polyurethane foam to lift and level the concrete. 

Our foreman used the PolyLevel Injection System to be injected underneath the slab. This process is done by drilling tiny holes into the concrete and injecting the polyurethane foam into the voids. The polyurethane has expanding properties that allow for accurate lifting and leveling of the slab. PolyLevel is a lightweight, waterproof, and environmentally friendly solution that will not add weight to the existing soil, and will not wash out.

When the job was complete, the homeowner was pleased with the outcome and the professionalism they saw on the job. They were finally able to walk safely on their concrete patio without worrying about tripping.

Foundation Repair in Union, NJ

Homeowner living in Union, NJ contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems since they were the local experts in foundation repair. The homeowner was concerned with the large vertical cracks that had formed over time in the basement. In the past, the basement had leaked due to these cracks and so the homeowner wanted to get the cracks repaired right away before any more damage occurred. 

System Design Specialist, Jeff Nero, met with the homeowner and did a full inspection of the basement. Walking up to the home, Jeff noticed cracks in the brick from the exterior. Once in the basement, he noticed interior cracks along the two walls and a basement window no longer leveled. The homeowner was worried that over time the foundation would get worse and possibly crumble. Jeff completely understood the homeowners concerns and suggested CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcing System.

CarbonArmor is the perfect solution for bowing or cracking foundation walls for the stripes are made of reinforced polymers that is 10 times stronger than steel. The straps will stabilize the walls and prevent further problems. 

The homeowner was relieved that their foundation walls were now stabilized and no further foundation damage could occurred. Quality 1st Basement Systems provided a permanent solution leaving this Union, NJ Homeowner completely satisfied. 

Comparison Shopping Leads to Dry Basement in Union, NJ

Justin M. wanted to waterproof his basement.  He searched around and received estimates from other companies to see who would do the best work for a reasonable price.  Quality 1st Basement Systems was one of the companies Justin contacted during his comparison shopping.  Waterproofing Specialist Kenneth Peare visited Justin, inspected his basement, and provided him with an ideal plan for resolving his basement issues. 

The installation crew, headed by Project Manager Victor Leon, set out to fix Justin’s basement.  They installed a combination of products designed and engineered to work together for a complete system of smooth and efficient waterproofing.  Included in the design were WaterGuard, a TripleSafe sump pump system, a Flood Ring, IceGuard, and LawnScape Outlet.  Any water intrusion would be directed away from walls through the WaterGuard system and toward the TripleSafe sump pump.  The pump would then direct the water out of the home through the discharge lines and disperse it away from the home through an underground extension, the LawnScape Outlet.  The IceGuard would provide added protection in winter months to prevent the discharge line from freezing.  The Flood Ring would also provide added protection to the basement by being installed around Justin’s water heater to drain any leakage to the WaterGuard conduit.

Using the Quality 1st coupon found online for the promotion at the time and taking advantage of the financing options available, Justin M. made the well-informed decision to work with Quality 1st Basement Systems.  He certainly found the best work for a reasonable price and could thereafter have peace of mind from basement water problems!

I believe we have serious seepage from one basement wall where there "appears" to be a crack. We had water seep out to out to 8-10 feet from the wall which required a wet dry vac during the current storm.
