Teterboro is the oldest operating airport in the Port District. Walter C. Teter acquired the property in 1917. During World War 1, North American Aviation operated a manufacturing plant on the site. After the war, the airport served as a base of operations for Anthony Fokker, the Dutch aircraft designer. The first flight from the present airport site was made in 1919. During World War II, the airport was operated by the Army Air Force. The Port Authority purchased it on April 1, 1949 from Fred L. Wehran, a private owner
In 1917, the Borough of Teterboro was incorporated by an Act of the New Jersey State Legislature. The land had been part of Moonachie and Little Ferry Boroughs.
The Port Authority of N.Y. and N.J. owns the Teterboro airport which takes up most of the Borough’s land.
Your wet basement in Teterboro, NJ is fixed permanently by A-1 Basement Solutions of Scotch Plains and backed by our Life of House Warranty.
Wet basement problems are due to the age of the homes
During construction a tar based waterproofing is applied to the foundation before the backfill is done.
The tar substance is applied to the exterior of the concrete walls and is good for 30-40 years or so.
The tar coating is similar in substance and life to roofing shingles which also don’t last forever.
Once the tar is gone the foundation is no longer sealed and the porous concrete is laid bare.
With water pressure around the foundation the concrete absorbs the water which leads to a wet basement.
Fix the wet basement with a French drain to stop black mold growth
There are different types of French Drains to fix your wet basement.
Just as there are different contractors, there are different ways to do the same job.
The French Drain cost from a contractor who does a shallow channel will vary from the French Drain cost of a contractor who does a deep channel system.
They are both French Drains but there is quite a difference between the two.
The A-1 Basements deep channel French Drain relieves more hydrostatic pressure from beneath the floor than a shallow system.
