I first heard about Quality 1st through the yellowpages looking to fix the horizontal cracks on my basement walls. I am well satisfied with the work completed by Quality 1st Dan M. was very knowledgeable and the cost was within my budget. The wall anchors were able to stabilize the wall and not allow for any further horizontal cracking.

Before contacting Quality 1st Basement Systems, I was always getting water in my basement during heavy rainfall. I met with my inspector and he explained how I can waterproof the basement for good with a warranty. I decided to have two sump pumps and french drains installed for the water problem. the crew lead by Wilver Cardoza completed the work in just 1 day! They were courteous, professional, and overall outstanding. I feel as though my solution will be a reliable and permanent one. I would highly recommend the Quality 1st team to complete any basement job.

We had issues with some water getting into our basement. So we went out and got a few companies to look at our situation. After meeting with your design specialist, John Schweitzer, we felt confident that your company was the optimal choice in selecting a waterproofing system. John did a thorough analysis of our basement and put together a comprehensive plan that would address the problem. Other companies did a basic analysis and didn’t provide much comfort that they could get the job done effectively. John sat down with us, answered our questions and listened to our concerns during our meeting with him. He was informative and knowledgeable of the product you sell. Other companies out there offer similar products, not waterguard, but overall a French drain type system. We could have gone with one of the other groups, but Quality 1st’s customer service level led us to believe that they’d be the right company to do the job.
Juan Garcia and his crew did the job a few weeks later and put the system in place quickly. Juan was very professional and answered our questions during the course of the project. He and his team were very hard workers and must be assets to your company.
After the completion of the project, John was available to answer follow up questions that we had about the basement system your company installed and he followed up with us to be sure it was doing what it is supposed to do. We’ve been leak free over the past two months. Should we know others who might need your product in the future, we will gladly recommend your company.

My inspector did a great job at explaining all products and services before my installation process. I chose to go with Quality 1st because of the truth behind their system and the waterproofing book that was sent to me previously before the appointment.

Freehold basement had water coming in due to groundwater seepage. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a basement waterproofing system called WaterGuard, which is installed around the perimeter of the basement. Water is able to enter the WaterGuard system through specially designed flanges and filtered to the SuperSump sump pump and removed from the basement, keeping this basement dry.
