This Montclair crawl space had a dirt floor and was full of debris and falling insulation. Floors in a crawl space that are not encapsulated allow moisture to enter the space causing humidity. Humidity causes damage to the structure and mold which was affecting the rest of this home. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system to completely seal off this crawl space from the earth creating a healthy, non-humid environment for this Montclair home!

This homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems because her crawl space was causing a major draft in her home. She also noticed that her floors were always freezing cold. CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system was installed to seal off this crawl space and prevent the cold, outside air from affecting the rest of her home. The SilverGlo insulation system also reflects heat back into the crawl space. This homeowner now has a safe crawl space and a much more comfortable living area!

Montclair's Basement, Crawl Space & Foundation Contractor

For over 25 years, Quality 1st Basements has been the trusted basement & foundation company of Montclair. Our high quality work and exclusive access to over 28 patented products set us apart in the home improvement industry. When working on basements, crawl spaces and foundations we are the safe choice for your home.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

Basements and crawl spaces consistently have issues with water, mold and rot. To prevent these problems from occurring in the future we install a patented interior drainage system. Water and moisture that enters the basement is captured, controlled and safely removed via the basement drain before you ever notice it. The drainage system also works as part of crawl space encapsulation. 

We Provide:
  • Basement Waterproofing
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement
  • Clean Protected Crawlspace
  • Protection against Mold
  • Improved Home Value

We also fix basement leaks with permanent basement leak repair. With our system in place there is no need to fear basement flooding. We want your basement to be safe for years so our work comes with a transferable lifetime dry-basement warranty. 

Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

Whatever the issue we are the trusted foundation repair contractor. Our foundation repair experts will visit your home, identify the issue and recommend the right solution. We provide permanent foundation repairs using non-invasive methods. There is no need to tear up your entire yard to fix the foundation.

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 

Along with general foundation problems we also fix sunken concrete slabs using PolyLEVEL. PolyLEVEL is an expansive polyurethane foam that fills in the gaps beneath the sunken concrete and lifts it back up to a level position. It also does not erode or wash away. If you are looking for the right foundation repair company, you found it. Let's get started.

Job Stories From Montclair, NJ
Waterproof Your Basement Before Finishing

Nancy O. recently purchased a home that needed to be waterproofed before she could finish the basement.  She called in the experts from Quality 1st Basement Systems who would guarantee a dry basement all year round.  Rick Ludlow met at her Montclair, NJ home and recommended the installation of a TripleSafe sump pump, WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system, IceGuard, and LawnScape. 

The TripleSafe sump pump provides the ultimate protection.  This patented sump pump includes three pumps that respond appropriately to the amount of water that is coming into the basement.  If the first pump fails or can’t keep up, the second will join in and pump double the water.  To collect water around the perimeter of the basement, the WaterGuard drainage system sits out of the footing so that it will never clog.  When water enters the system via holes on the wall side, it then flows from the WaterGuard to the TripleSafe sump pump.

This combination of products is perfect for Nancy O.’s Montclair, NJ home.  She can now take steps toward finishing her basement and making it a space that the whole family can enjoy without fear of basement flooding in the future!

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Montclair, NJ

Maruta M. was looking to get her crawl space encapsulated so she contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for some help.  Basement and crawl space waterproofing specialist Ryan Clay met with Maruta at her home and determined that the CleanSpace liner, Drainage Matting, EverLast Door, and SmartDrain would do just the trick!

The CleanSpace liner is a 20 mil thick vapor barrier with seven layers of high-density polyethylene, low-density polyethylene, and polyester cord.  It is guaranteed to hold up for years of normal wear and tear so that you can store possessions without worrying about rips and tears.  This in combination with our Drainage Matting will keep your crawl space dry.  Moisture will be kept far away with the CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system, but drainage is just as important.  This directs the water flooding your crawl space to the perimeter and out of the space.

Quality 1st Basement Systems is happy they could help Maruta M. encapsulate her crawl space.  The CleanSpace vapor barrier will ensure that her crawl space stays dry and moisture free.

SuperSump Sump Pump Installation to Solve Your Flooded Basement

The SuperSump sump pump from Quality 1st Basement Systems is one of a kind.  It can pump 2220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot discharge head smoothly and quietly.  Regina B. has water coming into her basement and when Kenneth Peare, a waterproofing expert from Quality 1st, went out to assess her wet basement, he recommended the installation of this top of the line SuperSump sump pump.

Marcello Sanchez and his crew also installed an UltraSump battery backup to make sure the SuperSump would continue to work even in tough situations, a SaniDry basement dehumidifier, and ThermalDry to drain any basement leaks to the sump pump and keep the basement insulated.  The SaniDry basement dehumidifier is an Energy Star rated dehumidifier that is large enough to eliminate moisture from your entire basement as well as keep musty odors from filling your home because of basement water and moisture.

These quality products were the perfect solution to Regina B.’s flooded basement.  She can rest assured that the SuperSump sump pump installation along with the SaniDry and ThermalDry will keep her basement dry for years to come.

We moved into our house in October and have just experienced our first minor flooding in our basement (as well as a leek in our mud room). We're still learning about the house and thought we had a sump pump but can't find it.... Would live to have someone come out and tell us what's what - and what we can do to avoid future flooding.
