"Our original sump pump was installed at least 15 years ago. In the past..."
Our original sump pump was installed at least 15 years ago. In the past couple of years we would have problems with the float getting stuck with soot. Also in 2007 we experienced a Nor-easterner. The original pump could not keep up with the water coming into our basement.
Late 2007 we started getting calls from contractors looking to do basement work. Many of the contractors did not listen to our concerns with the drainage of the sump pump and provided exorbitant price quotes. They were so confusing and expensive that I was just about ready to give up looking.
Quality 1st Basement Systems gave the last quote. They walked throughout the basement area and outside, listened to my concerns and sat down with me to explain their basement system. Their use of computer graphics while they explained their services was wonderful. Their price quote was better than all the rest plus the features of their system were far superior.
The installers were on time, and clearly explained what they planned to do. The dust was minimal. They continuously cleaned as they worked. Any concerns that I may have had, they eased them. Before they left, they explained the system and all the paper work that they left with me.
In two months since the installation, we have had a lot of rain, but none in the basement.
Service is very important to my wife and I, and we would gladly recommend Quality 1st Basement Systems. During this process, we felt that we were the most important clients.

"Remediation of basement water with a great system. Quality 1st provided..."
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.

"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 was very happy with the experience on the day of installation. The..."
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.

Besides worrying about cost, I was "put off" for years worrying about the huge mess and cleanup it would cause.
Both concerns worked out very well to my great satisfaction.
As far a using me as a reference, I think it best that we wait till I have had a chance to observe the job in action via a major storm.

Keith Macfarlane was great. He took time to go around and analyze my crawl space.
Came out and took another 1 hour explaining to me everything the he noticed inside.
He immediately worked out the cost and also explained to me the different products that his company offers.
He compared his products with his competitors products and explained how his products are better.
I am impressed .

"Everything about Quality 1st Basements exceeded my expectations. We are..."
Everything about Quality 1st Basements exceeded my expectations. We are currently in the process of selling our home. When the buyers had a structural engineer review a crack in the foundation he said a repair needed to be performed. The person that came to review the job and provide the quote was knowledgeable, thorough and explained everything to us clearly and with patience. Both teams that worked on my house were courteous, professional, communicated with me and answered all my questions. They did great work, cleaned up well after the job was done and were very concerned that I was satisfied. Jonathan was my foreman and he went above and beyond to make sure the job was done well and to meet my expectations. Everyone on the crew was professional and kind. They even worked with me to get my job done even though we had a tight deadline. I highly recommend Quality 1st Basements. I also think they were fairly priced.

"The installation went smoothly and they were great! They cleaned up..."
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.

"Wilver Cardoza and his crew excellent workers. Would highly recommend."
While I wouldn't mind being used as a reference, I would not want to get phone calls directly from your perspective customers.
SMART VENT Flood Vents help protect your foundation during a flood by providing a path for the water to flow through the foundation walls, creating equal pressure inside and outside the foundation. Installing flood vents may significantly lower your flood insurance premium.
