Divyang S. of Princeton, NJ
Back in 2011, a heavy storm knocked out power for more than a day, and for that reason Divyang S.’s basement flooded. His neighbor, however, who had also lost power during the same storm, had a completely dry basement thanks to a battery-operated backup sump pump system. When Mr. S. learned about it, he decided to have the same system installed in his basement and called Tom Roman’s Quality 1st Basement Systems for an estimate. Mr. S. found the system design specialist very knowledgeable. He was shown many options to solve the problem and is pleased with the solution he chose. He hasn’t had a problem since. According to Mr. S. they are not your average contractor… “I feel very comfortable with them, because they are honest and they are professional.”Mr. S. would highly recommend Quality 1st Basement Systems to any homeowner looking to protect their basement from flooding or interested in the installation of a powerful sump pump system to keep their basements dry, even when the power goes out.

The install was very smooth I remember it was snowing, we started this process in March. The guys took a great amount of care to make sure they didn't trash the house.
They kept everything neat and clean jackhammering concrete is a little bit loud but it didn't take very long. From seeing the bright white basement you had no evidence workers were there.
Hurricane Irene was perfect for us, we were able to spend most of our time helping out others because our basement was nice and clean and dry. The only time I got soggy was helping out friends who hadn't had basement work done yet.

When Mrs. Adriene P. purchased her home, she knew it had a wet basement, with terrible, frequent flooding episodes. These flooding episodes eventually led to mold problems and health concerns for her and her family. She knew that extensive work needed to be done in that basement in order to keep it dry.
Fortunately, the company she chose to waterproof her basement was Tom Roman’s Quality 1st Basement Systems: the only company in NJ with exclusive access to over 24 patented products specifically designed to permanently solve leaky and flooding basement problems. Her basement has remained dry and mold-free ever since. She is happy to have worked with a company that really stands behind the quality of their work. They guarantee that the job is going to get done properly, and they actually follow up. “That is a rare thing today.” – she said.

Mrs. H. of Wayside, NJ
Mrs. H. is a very savvy homeowner. She will never hire any company to work on her home without first checking their references, licenses, ratings with the Better Business Bureau, and their overall reputation. That is exactly what she did when her basement flooded and she needed a company to fix it. After researching a few waterproofing contractors, she felt that Tom Roman’s Quality 1st Basement Systems was the company to trust when she needed to fix her home’s wet basement problems, because of their great local reputation. Quality 1st installed an interior drainage system and a sump pump system that has its own battery-operated backup pump, which has been keeping her basement dry even in times of prolonged power outages. She is very happy with the results and with the work performed. “It was done expertly, and the follow up each year is very good.” – Mrs. H said.

Tom R. of Staten Island, NJ
Tom R. first heard about Tom Roman’s Quality 1st Basement Systems through a neighbor who was very satisfied with the job performed by the company in his crawl space. Having crawl space problems of his own, Tom decided to give Quality 1st a call. “There doesn’t seem to be too many companies that really address crawl spaces. They accepted that challenge without a problem.” – said Tom, who also felt that the company had just the right products to address all this crawl space concerns. A drainage and sump pump system was installed to keep water from pooling under the house. The crawl space was then encapsulated and insulated to control moisture and prevent energy loss, making his home much more comfortable, especially in the wintertime. The sagging floors above the crawl space were stabilized and brought back to level with crawl space jacks. The work was performed quietly and in a timely manner, and the cleanup afterwards was very thorough. “Quality 1st Basement Systems promise a lot and they seem to back it up and deliver!” – concluded Tom.
