A homeowner in Cambria Heights, Queens, NY had a crack about a half inch wide running diagonally across the basement wall. During heavy rains, water came in through the crack and ran down the basement walls. Much to the homeowner's dismay, roots were starting to grow through the crack and mud was seeping in.

The application was smooth and easy, and once installed the leaking stop. Some moisture was on the basement wall, so the installation team added BrightWall basement wall covering. BrightWall is 100% waterproof and keeps moisture from coming through the basement walls. Now the leaking has stopped, roots are no longer coming through, and the work was all done in just one day!
Sam, living in Jackson Heights, NY contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems after one of her small children tripped on their concrete patio in their backyard. Horrified that this type of accident could happen again, she wanted to get an expert over right away to solve the problem. Jeff Nero, a System Design Specialist from Quality 1st, drove out to Jackson heights , measure the sinking slab, and determined whether or not the team could raise it. Jeff measured the slab at about 4 inches of settlement which can be a big trip hazard for small children. Luckily, there was no tree roots causing the surrounded slabs to raise, therefore Polylevel Injection Foam would do just the trick.
PolyLevel Foreman, Arturo Jacuinde and his crew, drilled small penny size holes in the concrete slab. Next, they injected the PolyLevel foam underneath the slab which expands and hardens raising the slab back to desired level. PolyLevel is more cost efficient and causes no disturbance to the environment around it since anyone can walk on the slab within 15 minutes after job completion. Instead of removing and replacing the entire patio area, PolyLevel quickly and safely lifts the slab back to level.
Sam was amazed at how fast and easy the entire processes was and was thankful the tripping hazard was removed. She appreciated how well the crew cleaned up after they were finished and was happy her children were able to play in her backyard again. Sam became a satisfied customer and now tells all her friends about Quality 1st Basement Systems.
