The installation to raise a sinking concrete slab is very simple. Small penny-sized holes are drilled into sections of the concrete and polyurethane foam, PolyLevel is injected underneath the slab. We found that concrete sinks due to the soil underneath the slab. Soil becomes weak when it is too wet or too dry and can no longer support the weight of the concrete. PolyLevel is a lightweight foam that provides additional support, permanently stabilizing the patio area.
Quality 1st Basement Systems fixed this sinking concrete slab permanently. The crew injected PolyLevel underneath the concrete. Once the PolyLevel expanded, it lifted the concrete up to a level position. Now this Stewartsville, NJ property is safer with PolyLevel.
The front porch of this Greenwich, NJ family home had settled, creating a 5 inch gap between the siding and the concrete. The homeowners were very concerned since it happened rather quickly and so they wanted to get it fixed right away. System Design Specialist, Ken Peare, inspected the entire wrap around porch and measured almost 3 inches of settled concrete. He recommended PolyLevel to be injected underneath the slab, where it would expand and harden, raising it back to level. The homeowners were amazed that after 15 minutes of the job completion, they were able to use their porch.

Moisture was coming in through the walls in Hugh S.’s home anytime there was a heavy rain. He contacted his local basement waterproofing experts for a free estimate to learn how to stop the moisture from creating musty odors and wet walls. Washington Piera and his team installed a TripleSafe sump pump system and the WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system to take care of any basement water or moisture. The TripleSafe sump pump offers the ultimate protection from water in your basement. This product has three pumps that respond to the amount of water coming into your home, and pumps it directly out.
After this work was completed, there still seemed to be a moisture issue, so Hugh S. contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems again to have a SaniDry dehumidifier installed in his basement. The SaniDry basement dehumidifier is an energy-efficient model that was specifically created for large basement spaces. This unit is the top one in the industry!
The basement moisture was permanently removed from the basement and Hugh S. no longer has to worry about basement water in his Franklin Lakes, NJ home. We are always available to service our basement waterproofing products, and continue to provide permanent solutions when water keeps making its way into your basement. Now Hugh’s basement is a dry, healthy space all year round.
Jerry from Allamuchy was experiencing sinking concrete slabs around his pool area which concerned him since his grandchildren were still rather small and could possibly trip and fall. Jerry didn't want to remove and replace the concrete, he just wanted an easy, quick, and permanent solution. After seeing a concrete leveling truck in his neighborhood he decided to contact the company to discuss what his options were besides replacing the concrete.
System Design Specialist, Maurice Robinson, was sent to the home and did a full walk through with Jerry around the pool area. Maurice recommended that Quality 1st use PolyLevel, to raise the slab without having to remove and replace the entire concrete area. A small hole is drilled into each individual slab where PolyLevel is then injected underneath and expands, raising the concrete back to the desired level. Easy, quick and permanent just what Jerry wanted!
Blairstown,NJ homeowner had large cracks across the middle of basement floor from front to back. One side of floor had settled almost 2 inches, creating a trip hazard. Both the Basement and the garage floor slabs had large voids under them. The homeowner wanted the floor raised back to level and the trip hazard removed before someone got hurt.They also wanted the voids filled and prevent soils from washing out from under the home. Quality 1st Basement Systems sent System Design Specialist, Mike Jersey, out to meet with the owner and do an inspection.
Mike recommended PolyLevel Injection instead of removing and replacing the concrete. First a small hole is drilled into the settling slab, next PolyLevel is injected underneath which expands then hardens raising the concrete slab back to its desired level.It is also used to fill any voids in the concrete as well. PolyLevel is fast and affordable. The strong but light foam is waterproof and noninvasive so it will not be affected by rain nor does it have a messy look or finish. The Homeowner was amazed at how fast the crew was able to remove the trip hazard and that within 15 minutes it could be walked on.
Nasty crawl spaces can cause serious harm to your family's health and the structure of your home. When water seepage occurs inside, moisture follows creating musty odors and mold which affects the quality of air that travels to the first level of your home. Crawl spaces have wood beams and over time when wood constantly is damp and covered in mold, it becomes week and begins to sag. This will cause the floor on the first level of your home to settle and windows and doors may stick. Your crawl space is not a space in your home to visit often and so why not protect it so you never have to worry again! We recommend moisture Vapor Barriers, known as CleanSpace for any crawl space experiencing those wet and musty environments. This product gives you peace of mind that your crawl space is completely sealed off to prevent water leaks, moisture, and mold.
A customer living in Allamuchy, NJ called Quality 1st when they decided it was time to address the wall cracks in their basement. Our System Design Specialist, Rey, did a full inspection of the home's foundation to make sure other cracks hadn't formed. It's important to address a foundation issue as soon as you see signs of foundation settlement. Over time a small crack can become a large crack creating a bigger issue. The homeowners waited sometime before deciding to seek professional help which caused the crack to grow.
Rey recommended our CarbonArmor Support System. These carbon straps have very high tensile strength allowing them to adhere to concrete walls to keep them from bending or bowing inward. Whats great about this solution is that they can be easily covered with paint or wall panels during a basement finishing project. CarbonArmor installation is fast and completed in one day depending on the size of the basement.
Before the homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basements, their foundation issues impacted their quality of life and their peace of mind. Now with CarbonArmor, the homeowner feels safe again in their home and no longer has to worry about future foundation problems.
Quality 1st Basements was contacted by a family living in Vienna, NJ who had signs of foundation failure. They had cracks in their foundation walls allowing light to shine through into the basement. Doors and windows were beginning to stick and the floors on the first leveling of the home were no longer even.
We sent Foundation Repair Specialist, Kenny T. out to inspect the interior and exterior of the foundation and design a solution to stabilize and support the home. The homeowner recieved our packet in the mail with Kenny's picture and profile. This packet also had our foudation booklet that discusses why a foudation settles and how our products provide the ultimate solution.
Kenny T. met with the homeowners and did a full inspection inside and out around the entire perimeter of the home. He measured the cracks and brought new cracks to the homeowners attention. He then sat down with them showed him a video of how their home began to settle and we could stabilize it to prevent further movement and damage. Kenny then created a system using our products right off his lap top in the homeowners home.
We installed 16 PushPiers around the perimeter of the home to stabilize the foundation and prevent future movement. The family now has peace of mind that their home is portected and their family.
Being a homeowner of a home with foudation issues can be really scary. Foundation issues can hurt the value of your home, effect your peace of mind and can be a costly project if you ignore the signs. When John, from Vienna, noticed in his sons basement that cracked had formed, he told him to contact a professional right away to get them inspected.
We sent Foundation Repair Specialist, Steve V. out to inspect the foundation and offer a solution that would protect the foundation and provide this homeowner with peace of mind.
On the day of the free inspection, Steve met with John and his son to elevaulate the cracks John had discovered. The cracks were both vertical and horiztonal in multiple areas of the basement. Three out of the four walls had cracks and were beginning to bow inward.
Steve recommended our CarbonArmor Wall Reinforcing System. This system consists of flexibke carbon fiber fabric straps that applied to the foundation walls with a high strength epoxy. This system stabilizes the wall to prevent further movement and cracking. This system involves no exterior excavating and it won't impact future basement finishing. Brackets located at the top of the straps help make adjustments over time to pull the wall back gradually to its original position.
Quality 1st Basement Systems received a call from a homeowner in Southampton, NJ. The homeowner described the floors of the first level of their home were "sagging," indicating their home was undergoing a foundation problem. We sent out our System Design Specialist, Dane C., to inspect the home and provide a quote for the homeowner.
Dane arrived at the home, on time, and inspected the floors. He then checked the crawl space, located underneath the home and discovered the crawl space beams were sagging. Dane concluded this was causing the floors above to sag, so he presented this to the homeowner and recommended our SmartJack System by Supportworks as the perfect solution.
Sagging floors are often caused by wood rot, from a humid and damp crawl space, or too much weight from the furniture. Our SmartJack System by Supportworks is designed to eliminate the sagging sensation by stabilizing and straightening the floors. The system is made from galvanized steel and is adjustable, so it can lift the floors to the desired height.
Since the installation, the homeowner has not experienced any sagging or sloping sensation in their floors. They have been completely satisfied with the services of Quality 1st Basement Systems.
Quality 1st Basement Systems was contacted by a homeowner in Vienna, NJ about a water issue. The homeowner had been experiencing small floods in their basement and was in need of waterproofing the area. We had our System Design Specialist, Anatoly S., inspect the basement and provide a quote for the homeowner. Once Anatoly arrived at the home, on time, he greeted the homeowner and proceeded to inspect the basement. After a thorough inspection, Anatoly presented his findings to the homeowner and recommended our basement waterproofing system would be the perfect solution.
The main components of the basement waterproofing system included the WaterGuard French Drain System and Triple Safe Sump Pump. WaterGuard is specifically designed to collect water seeping into the basement and direct it to the Triple Safe Sump Pump where it will be pumped away from the basement. Each system is also durable, long-lasting, and will keep the basement dry and healthy for years. In addition, our crew also installed the SaniDry Sedona, which filters clean air around the basement.
The installation was a success and the homeowner was happy with the outcome.
