Job Stories From Short Hills, NJ
Heavy Rain Storms Bring Water Seepage Along Walls

Basements and crawl spaces are prone to taking on water whenever there is a heavy rain.  If water is seeping in along your basement walls, then you are in a similar position that Sally R. was before she contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems.  She describer that the rugs in the basement were getting soaked during rainstorms that that she needed a solution to keep water out.

Waterproofing expert Ron Michaels met with Sally R. for a free estimate and suggested the installation of the WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system and LawnScape.  WaterGuard is designed specifically for wall water seepage because it sits along the seam of the basement wall and floor to collect water and drain it to a sump pump.  Many systems like this get clogged because they sit in the soil under the basement floor- not WaterGuard!  This unique design is installed on top of the footing so that it will never clog.

Quality 1st Basement System is happy to have helped another homeowner solve their basement waterproofing problems.  With the help of WaterGuard and LawnScape, Sally R. and her family no longer have to worry that the rug will be soaked or damaged during heavy rains.  They can enjoy a dry, healthy basement for many years.     

Permanent Basement Waterproofing for Your Home

Whenever there was rain for a few days, water made its way into Judy B.’s basement.  She had this problem in the past, but never did anything about it.  Finally it was time to contact her local basement waterproofing professionals.  Kenneth Peare from Quality 1st Basement Systems met with Judy B. at her Short Hills, NJ home.  With his training and expertise, Kenneth was able to come up with a complete and permanent solution for this basement water problem.

In two short days, Victor Leon and his crew installed a TripleSafe sump pump, WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system, CleanSpace Liner, Drainage matting, and SaniDry to keep water and moisture out of the basement.  The CleanSpace liner is a vapor barrier that drains water to the sump pump and can brighten up the entire basement.  It keeps the basement air tight and free of moisture and humidity.  Similarly, the SaniDry dehumidifier works to create a basement space with low humidity.  It takes up to 100 pints of water per day out of your basement air and is very energy efficient.

Judy B. no longer has to worry about water getting into her basement.  This permanent basement waterproofing solution is sure to keep this leaky basement dry and healthy for years to come!    

UltraSump and WaterGuard Installation in Short Hills, NJ

Delores L. had water coming into her basement and needed some expert help.  She contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for a permanent solution and dependable service.  Basement waterproofing expert Dan McNally went out to assess the situation and came up with a comprehensive waterproofing plan. 

He recommended the installation of an UltraSump sump pump and WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system.  The UltraSump is a battery backup sump pump that keeps your sump pump working efficiently even if there is a power outage or your pump motor unexpectedly fails.  The patented WaterGuard is a drainage channel engineered specifically to solve basement water problems.  It was designed to sit above the footing and out of the soil under the basement floor so there is never a worry about it clogging. 

This combination of products is guaranteed to keep Delores L.’s basement dry and clean all year round.  She was happy with the system and made sure that everything was working properly before the crew from Quality 1st Basement Systems left.  Now she can rest assured that basement water will no longer be a problem.

Phone 2: - My friend used you last year and highly recommended you for waterproofing. I have one damp block wall and one leak (looks like there is a small hole in the foundation concrete block) in my basement that I'd like to have repaired. I am also very interested in the dehumidifier and want to talk about whether I need one or two for our roughly 2000 sf basement. Please contact me asap. Thank you!
