A Somerville homeowner hated venturing into his nasty crawl space. The concrete walls were allowing moisture to enter, causing extreme humidity. He had tried plastic liners before, with no success. Quality 1st Basement Systems had the solutions for this damp crawl space! The team installed the CleanSpace Liner, which is fitted tightly to the crawl space walls and floor. This crawl space vapor barrier system is made of several layers of durable plastic, making it waterproof as well as mold proof. Now outside air stays out where it belongs and moisture is a problem of the past!

The drainage system also works as part of crawl space encapsulation.

  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
You Receive:

Job Stories From Somerville, NJ
ThermalDry Floor Tiles Make a Finished Look in a Somerville Basement

A homeowner in Somerville was interested in options for finishing the floor in one area of his basement.  He had a relatively dry basement and was hoping to create another usable area.  He was considering a conventional flooring; however, he happened to come across Quality 1st Basement Systems in his internet search.  As free estimates were offered, this homeowner decided he would schedule an appointment just so he could compare the options available to him.

System Design Specialist Thomas Nehme visited the Somerville home, shared some of the quality flooring products available, and discussed how these products were engineered with basement conditions in mind.  While mold grows on organic materials when given the proper conditions, such as dampness coming through a porous concrete floor or a high humidity level in the room, ThermalDry Basement Floor Tiles would be resistant as they are manufactured from inorganic materials.  Additionally, these basement floor tiles will not crack or shatter yet they provide a marble-like appearance (in either Sandstone Gray or Canyon Beige).  The tiles would provide a nice complement to the already-existing finished area of the basement.  The floor temperature is also increased by these tiles as they create a break from the surface of the concrete floor.  Thomas provided a free estimate to the homeowner, answered all of his questions, and addressed any concerns.

This homeowner was happy to have Quality 1st Basement Systems install the flooring, knowing that they offered the best option to meet his needs.  In fact, this homeowner was so satisfied with the product, service, and installation that he requested Quality 1st Basement Systems complete another section of flooring in his basement just a few months later!

Resolving Basement Water Seepage in Somerville, NJ

A Somerville homeowner began to notice some seepage coming through the wall in her unfinished basement.  While flipping through the Home Improvement Guide, she found that Quality 1st Basement Systems offered a no-obligation free inspection and estimate by a waterproofing specialist, so she called to schedule an appointment.

After completing a thorough interior and exterior inspection of the basement, Kenny Tramutola, the Quality 1st Basement Systems’ waterproofing specialist, came up with an ideal plan to resolve the water issues.  He carefully explained his findings and waterproofing plans and provided a free estimate for the waterproofing products and work. 

The plan included installation of a full-perimeter WaterGuard (to channel and direct any water seepage); a TripleSafe Sump Pump System (to efficiently and reliably remove water from the basement area as well as provide back-up pumps in case of pump or power failure); and an IceGuard (designed to prevent flooding in the event of frozen discharge pipes). 

Kenny also included installation of a SaniDry XP, a powerful and efficient dehumidification system which can drain automatically so it never has to be emptied.  Additionally, BrightWall would be installed on the walls to keep out water vapor and humidity while it directs water seepage to the WaterGuard drain. 

With this project, Quality 1st Basement Systems helped to create a drier basement for the homeowner.  Additionally, the space was brightened up and sported a cleaner look with the Bright Wall.  This homeowner was rest assured that she could put away worries about water seepage in the basement from thereon in.

Hi, I'm looking for a rough estimate to have a house leveled. A structural engineer examined it and said the house needs to be jacked on the main beam and steel shims added, approximately 2" up. Thank you.

Vertical crack in the foundation. Near there, driveway buckling. I don't know if they're related, but the crack should be looked at. If you could also check the entire foundation for issues, that would be great.
