    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!

    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.

    Our Concrete Repair Team run by PolyLevel Foreman, Ash G., was able to lift and leveling sinking slabs near this pool area. The Swim and Sport Club was concerned the trip hazards that had formed from the settlement would cause an accident if someone were to fall. 

    Ash and his crew, drilled small penny-size holes into each slab. Using special equipment, polyurethane foam known as PolyLevel is injected beneath the slab, raising it back towards desired level. The small holes are then covered with cement and within 15 minutes the slabs could be walked on or driven over! This installation is quick and easy causing no disruption to the surrounding areas. PolyLevel is waterproof and environmentally friendly making it a perfect solution for this area!

    A homeowner in Brick, New Jersey was experiencing dampness in their crawl space and contacted Quality 1st for a solution. Our System Design Specialist inspected the crawl space and recommended that the crawl space be encapsulated so no more water or cold air would enter the crawl space.

    A vapor barrier system, CleanSpace was installed on the crawl space walls and floors to make sure no water vapor or humidity passes through. This system also helps protect the homes structure against mold and rot. CleanSpace does not support the growth of mold or mildew and will keep the crawl space dry and healthy.

    A homeowner in Roxbury Township, New Jersey had water seeping in from the ground every time it rained. Quality 1st System Design Specialist inspected the basement and suggested it be waterproofed. WaterGuard was installed along the perimeter of the basement under the floor slab, on top of the foundation footing to prevent the system from clogging. Next, the TripleSafe sump pump was installed in the basement to pump the water out of the basement. The TripleSafe sump pump has three levels of pumps built inside in case of one pump failure, the next lower level pumps will kick in. The TripleSafe also comes with a backup battery that will pump 11,500 gallons of water or more on a fully charged battery. This basement is free from water and protected.
