I was very happy with the work that Quality 1st did for us, Nick was excellent and very patient with us. Overall Nick was great, very patient calling us from time to time over 2 years. He was also excellent when we were concerned during the construction about water seepage. We will gladly be a referral for Quality 1st, just ask!

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!
