"Company cares about quality. This is the most important quality in..."
Excellent job from start to finish. The crew was on time, courteous and professional. We had many different contractors in our home over the last three years but none compare to the service and quality we received from Quality 1st. Well worth the cost.

Quality 1st Basement Systems showed up on time, they had the right materials, and they knew what they were doing. They didn't have to use any of my tools, they cleaned up after themselves, and they even left extra towels in case there was anything that needed attention later on. They did a great job.

"The crew from Quality 1st Basement Systems was excellent. They came out..."
The crew from Quality 1st Basement Systems was excellent. They came out and started immediately. The job took 2 days, originally they thought it would take 3 days. They were very hard-workers. This was an exceptionally tough job and they did it all by hand, carrying out the broken concrete. It was very labor intensive work and they did a good job. We are very, very happy with it.
I thought their price was invaluable, for the work they did. I really like their actual system. They had a unique way of doing the water proofing. They dug a channel under the cement drawing the water away from the basement. I think the owner invented the system, from what I read in their information.
We have had problems with flooding in our basement for years. They did this work before the big storms came through, so it was perfect timing to see if it worked, and it did! There wasn't a drop of water to be found anywhere. It stayed as dry as can be. I would highly recommend them to anybody!

After Hurricane Irene, we met with 4 other companies to give us an estimate for our basement. And we are so glad that we chose to use Quality 1st Basement Systems. Moises, Heriberto and Nelson did an awesome job. They were fast and efficient, and very clean! And I have a peace of mind that my basement will no longer flood. Thank You so much.

"I searched for a long time for a company to waterproof my basement. I met..."
I searched for a long time for a company to waterproof my basement. I met with five different companies and finally decided on quality 1st. If it was only because they offer the best system at the best price for the needs of my home I would not be writing this review. Of all the companies I met with quality 1st drew up the best design plans. When I decided to alter the design plan to accommodate the changing designs of the basement they easily and expertly complied. The work was performed in one day and if it wasn't for the fresh coat of concrete at perimeter of the basement you would have never known they were there. There was a small issue that I had where they didn't put enough concrete at the base of the stairs. I called Juan(the foreman on the job) and he came out the next day(Sunday) to correct the problem. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with this company. I would not hesitate to hire them again.

"This year, hurricane Sandy left my family and me with a lot of mess to..."
This year, hurricane Sandy left my family and me with a lot of mess to clean up. Before Sandy, I had a fully finished basement, but the hurricane left nothing but the four walls and wooden frame. This was the moment in which I had to make a decision of what to do next. I was afraid that I now had to deal with contractors and had to go through all the nine-yards. However, I made the right decision by calling Quality1stBasement. Nick Biris, my salesman, was very respectful and compassionate towards me and my situation. His knowledge regarding possible products and plans for renovation was remarkable. I had a detailed discussion with Nick on what I could do in my basement; at no point did he try to sell me anything, but instead focused on my predicament. He made his recommendations, but the end decision was mine. He went through the entire process with me, educating me on weak areas in the basement that allowed water in. After our discussion, the proposal he came up with included the items which would help the most at a fair price. He was not at all like other salesmen who try to oversell. Quality1stBasement's Installation crew, led by Juan Garcia, were hardworking people who did an impeccable job. They were on time every day and were very careful and neat with all their work. Even though there was a lot of concrete breaking, they put plastic up, covered items and moved things out of the basement before starting; they did not rush their work, and were very considerate in making sure other parts of the house did not get dust. They worked in a very professional manner, and cleaned up all the leftover mess before thy left. The workmanship of the whole crew was remarkable; it was evident that they took pride and care in their work. It was great experience with Quality1stbasement, and the finished product shows the dedication and care of their hardworking crew. Now, I hope the product itself delivers what it supposed to.

Crew: Wilver Cardoza: Crew were excellent. Very efficient and professional. Left everything tidy. The whole process from start to finish has been great, from the original quote to teh completion of work. The original quote was a quote not an estimate i.e. the assessment of work was thorough and teh price account for any likely issues, there was no hard sell and everything happened as agreed and planned!

"We had a sump pump installed on January 31, 2013. As they had to..."
We had a sump pump installed on January 31, 2013. As they had to jackhammer the concrete floor in my boiler room, I was very concerned about the mess I would come home to. Well, I did some very unnecessary worrying. My house was just as clean as I left it that morning. Unless you saw the fabulous new sump pump, you would never have known I had work done. Awesome job from start to finish. Juan Garcia was our serviceman and he did an outstanding job. I was so impressed with the crew's professionalism, work ethic and concern for my personal belongings.
Instead of dreading the next rain storm, I am actually looking forward to it so I can see my new pump in action.
Thank you Quality 1st Basement. It was a pleasure doing business with you.

I was very happy with the experience on the day of installation. The installation team showed up on time and the foreman, Juan, was very professional and answered several questions I had thought of after my initial consultation. The work was done within one day as promised and there was significantly less dust / cleanup than I was expecting afterward. They took care with going in and out of my home and didn't mind explaining the process or the materials being used as they went along. They cleaned up both the basement and my driveway once they were complete. I would not hesitate in recommending them to friends or family.

I needed structural repair in my crawl space and chose Quality 1st Basement Systems because I believed their SmartJack system was exactly what I needed to address my problem. I was very happy with the salesperson and the no pressure sales presentation. The install crew were prompt, professional, and very hard-working. They politely answered all my questions and cleaned up the job site when they finished. I am very happy with the work that was done.
