    After

    Homeowner had sagging beams in the basement of their Jamaica, NY home which brought serious concern to the owner and his family. They contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems who sent System Design Specialist, Ken Peare, out to inspect the basement and discuss the solution Quality 1st could provide them.

    The Quality 1st crew installed SmartJacks under the sinking beams which lifts the beams back to the original state, stabilizing them and preventing future damage. ZenWall insulated panels were installed to give the basement a more finished look!  ThermalDry flooring was  installed on the floors to  make the basement floor more comfortable to stand but also keeps it warmer due to the pegs underneath preventing the flooring from laying directly on the cold concrete floor. This Waterproof and mold resistant flooring is great for any basement floor and is highly recommended when the basement is not completely finished.

    Now the family can finally use and enjoy their basement without worrying about cold feet and sagging beams. 

  • Crawl Space Encapsulated in Saint Albans, Queens
