  • "We decided a dehumidifier was needed in our basement." Read Full Testimonial

    John S. of Belleville, NJ

    Customer Testimonial

              We decided a dehumidifier was needed in our basement. We did our research and concluded that something more than a store bought product was required. So we investigated companies that specialize in basement moisture problems, this led us to Quality 1st Basements. We made an appointment; in a few days we were sitting with Kenny discussing our options. What we quickly found was that Kenny is an expert in all phases of basement moisture, waterproofing and finishing. We chose the SaniDry XP Basement Air System, six SunHouse Basement Window Enclosures, and the CleanSpace Wall System for the basement walls. The next step, a date and time for the work to begin. When that date came, Mario and his crew arrived right on time. But wait, it gets even better. I thought a job like this would take days to finish. So much to install, outside excavation to remove the old windows and install the new ones. Nay, nay by 5 pm the installation work was complete. Clean up was next. Why was the work done by 5 pm?? It's because Mario and his crew knew exactly what needed to be done; they worked hard, they're professionals. Clearly they take pride in their work. There was a lot of soil left over after back- filling the enclosures, would it be left up to me to get rid of it, HOW? They took it all with them, putting it in 5 gal. containers and then loading it on their truck. Throughout, Mario briefed us on the crews progress, he answered my questions, showed different aspects of the job how it would be done, or would be done, and doing it gladly. It was about 8:30 pm when we said our good-byes, they pulled away driving away into the sunset. So, I've dealt with several Quality 1st members. Including Nicole, Kenny, and lastly Mario and his crew. What a pleasure dealing with a group of dedicated people that work together.

    Anthony N. of 08889, NJ

    Customer Testimonial

              Quality 1st Basement Systems were very professional from the first meeting with the sales representative (Steve) to the Foreman (Mario) and the team that completed the installation. I come from the construction industry and today's service providers don't function like Quality 1st. They provided great information upfront so I knew what I was buying including the process, had someone in contact with me for scheduling and when they said they were going to be there, they showed up and executed within a single day while keeping what could have been a very messy process to a very clean worksite from start to finish.
