Expert Basement Finishing in NJ & Staten Island

A remodeled basement with the Total Basement Finishing™ system in NJ & Staten Island

Our expert contractors create long-lasting, beautifully finished basements that are waterproof and durable.

Toms River's Total Basement Finishing Contractor

We transform your unfinished basement into comfortable, protected, attractive living space using the award-winning Total Basement Finishing™ (TBF) basement remodeling system, installed by Quality 1st Basement Systems.

The Total Basement Finishing includes walls, flooring and ceilings that are designed for two things: to look great; and to protect your investment. Most contractors use organic materials like wood and drywall. These materials grow mold and rot when they get wet. This means that the first burst pipe over the basement destroys it.

Our basement finishing products are waterproof. That same burst pipe could get the basement wet, you would dry it off and there would be no damage to the floors or walls!

The walls are insulated, the floors durable, the ceilings no-sag. We are here to help create a functional, beautiful living space in your basement. We finish basements in Clifton, NYC, Toms River, Edison, Union City, Staten Island and nearby. Call 1-888-680-3830 to schedule a free design consultation and estimate.

Four great reasons to remodel your basement

No moisture, no mold, no problems. Quality 1st Basement Systems has years of experience working in both basement waterproofing and basement finishing. We know exactly how to protect a basement from water damage while finishing it at the same time. You can expect a beautifully finished and protected basement that will last for the lifetime of your home. 

Inexpensive extra space. It is much less expensive to finish your basement than to build an addition to your home. Remodeling your basement provides an entire floor of quiet, private living space for less than half the cost per square foot of an addition (according to the 2013 Remodeling Magazine Cost vs. Value Report).

Excellent return on investment. If you want to increase the value of your home the big three you should look into is remodeling your bathroom, your kitchen and of course the basement.

Energy savings. Your big unfinished basement is not only ugly but it is costing you money each month in energy costs. By finishing your basement you can fix the air leaks and lack of insulation along the way to save yourself some cash in the long run.
