              I want to let you know that the recent job here at Educational Testing Services went very well. Jonathan was great to deal with. He had everything well organized, was very professional and kept me informed throughout the job. He and the crew worked very hard to get the job done in a timely fashion, took care of the work area during the job (which wasn’t easy due to the mushy conditions), and also cleaned up really well before they left. Due to the nature of my position, I am unable to tip contractors, but I wish I could. If I have more of this type of work to take care of in the future, I’ll be reaching out to you. Thanks, Kevin

    Customer Testimonial

              Highly recommend Quality 1st Basement System. From the initial on line contact to the completion of the job - extremely pleased. Jeff Nero did a great job assessing our needs and explaining fully the process from start to finish. An existing crack in our foundation wall that had been there since the first day of our home ownership 26 years ago, is now stabilized. The initial work was completed within 5 hours and the permits and inspections were handled exclusively by Quality 1st Basement. The work men were respectful of our home, neat, efficient and meticulous of how are property was restored to the original condition. The prospect of rebuilding the basement wall in order to prepare our home for sale was frightening. We are now at ease about listing our home with the assurance that the foundation is stable - with a 25 year warranty! Give them a call...You won't be disappointed.
