"His waterproofing system and the TripleSafe were put to the ultimate test: hurricane Irene." Read Full Testimonial
Joe J. of Dumont, NJ
Joe J. first heard about Quality 1st Basement Systems, searching the internet. But before he called for help, he researched the company thoroughly over the web, to make sure they were the right contractors for the job.
Quality 1st waterproofed their basement walls, installed a full WaterGuard interior drainage system, and the exclusive TripleSafe Sump Pump System, with not one but two backup pumps, including a battery-operated unit to keep the basement dry in case of power outages.
Joe J. was truly impressed with the work performed, and the level of professionalism and expertise demonstrated by the whole crew. He is also really satisfied with the results, because his basement has been dry ever since. Even more so when his waterproofing system and the TripleSafe were put to the ultimate test: hurricane Irene.
While all his neighbors' basements were flooded, the TripleSafe kept his basement completely dry!
For the last 6 years I'm very confident, very happy, with the service. Every year I get the service maintained so everything's working properly. The first time we lost power the battery backup worked at least 12 hours before the power came back on.

Lisa E. of Middletown, NJ
When Hurricane Irene hit the East Coast, Lisa E's finished basement in Middletown, NJ was flooded with over 6 inches of water. After dealing with the messy and costly cleanup process, Lisa decided to take every step necessary to prevent that from happening again. She began by calling a reputable and well-known local engineer who, after inspecting her basement, recommended an upgrade for the existing, failing sump pump and the installation of a full-perimeter drainage system inside the basement.
Following the engineer's recommendation, Lisa proceeded to get quotes from four different local companies. One of the companies just didn't seem trustworthy, another was overpriced, and a third one had a very pushy salesperson, giving Lisa the impression that he cared more about making a sale than actually helping her solve her basement problems.
Quality 1st Basement Systems was the fourth company to inspect and quote the job. The system design technician was very thorough in his inspection, very courteous and ready to answer all her questions. From that first contact, she knew she could trust Quality 1st to do a good job. She communicated her decision to the engineer and he was also quite pleased with her choice.
The crews came on time, performed the job quickly and neatly, answering all Lisa's questions as they progressed. The basement has been bone dry ever since the job was completed, having survived some major storms, including Hurricane Sandy.

Charles C. of Lincroft, NJ
After getting quotes from several companies, he found that Quality 1st was the most qualified company, because the technician was able to answer all his questions in a way that made perfect sense to him. They had the best solutions, their services and products were reasonably priced and the nationally-backed transferable lifetime warranty gave him extra assurance.
Since having a full-perimeter drainage system and a powerful sump pump installed a year ago, the basement has remained dry through all sorts of wet weather, including some major storms.
Charles is very happy with the results, and would highly recommend Quality 1st Basement Systems to anyone in NJ struggling with wet, leaky or flooding basements.

Faye B. of Summit, NJ
Faye B's home in Summit, NJ had significant basement flooding issues. During heavy rains her basement would get anywhere between 4 and 6 inches of water. When Hurricane Irene hit the East Coast, her entire basement was under 4 feet of water. That is when she decided to do something to fix the problem.
She shopped around, called several companies for an estimate, but was never satisfied with their proposals and answers. A contractor then referred her to Quality 1st Basement Systems and she soon scheduled her free inspection. The system design specialist was not only thorough in his inspection; he was able to answer all her questions, showing her a preview of what her basement was going to look like after the job was completed.
Faye's basement hasn't gotten a single drop of water since Quality 1st finished the waterproofing job. When Hurricane Sandy hit, her home lost power for 14 days. Yet, thanks to the powerful battery-operated backup sump pump installed as part of her waterproofing solution, the basement remained completely dry.
