  • "Don't hesitate to use this company!" Read Full Testimonial

    Mary S. of Aberdeen, NJ

    Customer Testimonial

              Don't hesitate to use this company!I have used Quality 1st Basements for probably ten to fifteen years. I called them out initially, and they installed a sump pump after the prior one had failed. Then, they came out to do yearly services on it. What I really like about this is they call me, and I don't have to remember to call them for the yearly maintenance. During one of their service calls, I asked about tying in my roof drains. I had one at the front of my house that would flood out my flower beds and wash all the mulch into the sidewalk when it rained. I wanted to tie that into a PVC pipe that could be tied into the sump pump. I had two down spouts, and they tied those into the sump pump drainage. My sump pump has a good life span, by the way, and I only recently had to replace the battery for it. They have done other work for me, too. I was tired of having a dirt floor, and I wanted a basement wrap system. This is basically a water proofing system, and it's like a plastic membrane with channels in it so the water can find its way to the sump pump. They offered a payment plan for that, and I really liked that. I had one year to pay it off with no interest. On another yearly service call, his gadget told us the humidity level was really high. I knew the crawl space was pretty damp, but I can be skeptical, and I was. He did such a good job explaining what the gadget was showing and was so patient answering my questions until I had a good understanding of what was going on. I thought about it, and I decided it was probably best to have them install a dehumidifier. Everything they have done for me has turned out great. i haven't had any problems with anything, and I have really enjoyed working with them on the various projects. They come highly recommended from me!

    Failing Sump Pump Replaced in Flemington, NJ

    Having annual maintenance done on your sump pump system is very important. Without proper checks and cleanings, the pump will fail and your basement will flood. This is exactly what happened to a homeowner in Flemington, NJ. Quality 1st Basements replaced the failing, old sump pump with our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. Not only does our TripleSafe have an airtight lid to prevent water vapor from evaporating into the basement air but also has an alarm system to alert the homeowner if the pump fails. This lets the homeowner now right away that we need to be called.
