Improperly fitting window well covers could create havoc in the basement as water can enter the well area and seep toward the window and foundation wall as this customer in Watchung, NJ found out. Quality 1st Basement's Design Specialist, J.C.Gibriano, assisted the customer with a solution. A SunHouse Basement Window Enclosure, installed by foreman Esau Aquino and his crew would eliminate some of the problems as the sturdy, light-colored window well has a bottom to prevent vegetation from growing and it is capped with a clear, well-fit cover to keep the rain out.

Watchung's Basement & Foundation Contractor

Quality 1st has been serving Watchung residents for over 25 years. We provide you permanent solutions for basements, crawl spaces and foundations. We are known for our quality work and patented basement products. For basement waterproofing, crawl space encapsulation, foundation repair, and concrete lifting we are Watchung's trusted contractor.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

If you are dealing with flooding, moisture or mold in your basement or crawl space we can solve the problem. We waterproof and protect basements by installing a perimeter drainage system along the interior of the basement. Any water entering is collected and channeled to a high-volume sump pump where it is pumped out and away from your basement.

We also install an energy-efficient dehumidifier designed specifically for the basement. By controlling the relative humidity moisture is controlled and mold is prevented. Our basement work in Watchung comes with a transferable lifetime dry-basement warranty. 

We Provide:
  • Basement Waterproofing
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
  • Egress Windows
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement
  • Clean Protected Crawlspace
  • Protection against Mold
  • Improved Home Value
  • Less Leaks & Better Energy Efficiency

Similar to the basement we also waterproof the crawl space by sealing and encapsulating it with heavy-duty vinyl vapor barrier. If needed a crawl space sump can be installed along with a dehumidifier. Like the basement this controls moisture in the space preventing mold and rot.

If the floor above the crawl space is cold we can add proper insulation to make it more comfortable. Instead of a debris filled nest for mold and racoons your crawl space will be a clean dry area you can use for extra storage space! 

Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

If your home is facing structural issues stemming from the foundation we can restore the foundation and prevent future issues. Using warranted foundation repair products we repair the foundation using non-invasive techniques, no torn up fixed foundations. Give us a call to have one of our foundation repair specialists visit your Watchung home for a free inspection. 1-844-268-0860

Repairs for:
  • Wall Cracks
  • Bowing Walls
  • Uneven Floors
  • Settling Foundations
  • Uneven Concrete Slabs       
We Use: 
  • Wall Anchors
  • I-Beam Wall Braces
  • Foundation & Slab Piers
  • Crawl Space Jack Posts
  • PolyLEVEL 

For homeowners dealing with sunken concrete slabs we have simple solution, PolyLEVEL. PolyLEVEL is a polyurethane foam that we inject below the sunken concrete slab. The foam quickly expands to fill the empty space and raise the slab back to its original position.

PolyLEVEL is a definite improvement over the mudslurry that most contractors use. Not only is it lighter, but it doesn't wash away, is injected through smaller holes and cures faster.

Job Stories From Watchung, NJ
Redirecting Basement Water Intrusion in Watchung, NJ

Whenever there were heavy rains, Kathleen (a homeowner in Watchung) knew what to expect: water intrusion in her basement.  She had seen it happen again and again, but finally had enough of the same result to search the internet for a resolution.  She contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to schedule a free estimate appointment.

Kenny Tramutola, a Quality 1st Basement Waterproofing Specialist, visited the homeowner, completed a thorough interior and exterior inspection of the basement, and determined the best solution to the water problems being experienced in this home.  The homeowner received a free estimate for the proposed work after the specialist answered all questions and addressed any concerns.

Resolving to have this fixed once and fixed properly, Kathleen had Quality 1st Basement Systems send an installation crew to complete the work.  The crew, headed by Project Foreman Jesus Alvarez-Sanchez, mobilized to Watchung, NJ to fix the water intrusion problem.  They installed a full perimeter WaterGuard System (to channel and direct any water seepage to the sump pump).  A SuperSump sump pump was also installed, to efficiently and reliably remove water from the basement area along with an IceGuard (designed to prevent flooding in the event of frozen discharge pipes).  Lastly, Kathleen opted to have CleanSpace Wall System installed, a clean white vapor barrier system to complete the job.    

Kathleen was undoubtedly relieved to have found the best solution to her basement water intrusion problems and Quality 1st Basement Systems was happy to help create a more securely dry basement for this Watchung homeowner.
