    Quality first was very friendly, efficient and delivered exactly what was promised. The office staff and salesperson were knowledgeable and friendly. The crew worked very hard and did a great job in cleaning up before leaving. I'm waiting for the first rainfall to see the items I had corrected in action, but feel confident my basement will be dry.

    Customer Review

    By Leila J.
    Browns Mills, NJ

    everyone did a great job at what they were assigned to do. The information sent prior to the visit by the sales rep. was worth the read. I learned much from that book and did have a much better feeling of security and understanding after reading the book. A must for all, prior to appointment with sales rep. The assistance of the book helped me make better decisions, ask better questions at the time of the interview. Sales person was very knowledgable about your products, what would be best for my paticular situation. Had lots of experience, assured me all those working for quality first basement systems, must take the mandatory training. You do not hire subcontractors..wonderful to know. I am so tired of that. I was provided with cell numbers, email addresses and what to expect comments from all involved. The office staff knew just where to direct my calls and did so promptly. The installation crew were, professional, polite and patient with helping me to understand how and why all the products I purchased were suited to my needs. I liked the one on one service; however, I did and do not like being sent a questionaire asking me if I would like to speak to the contractor prior to the installation...I did not send this back, but did call. Of course I wanted to speak to the installer. I was investing in a system that was going to save me much security in knowing I would no longer have to be worried about my floors buckling, the sub pump not working, having to deal with a flooded yard, having the water that was discharged from the side of my house, and running right back into the crawl space, not to mention in the spring an fall how wet my floors became because of the moisture in my crawl space. I cannot wait for the next heavy rain to see how the system works and I just love that very quiet sub-pump, yeap, I think Q first and I will have a good relationship.

    Victor really did go out of his way to satisfy my concerns, promptly attending to minor corrections, major reworking of a very old laundry sink pump that ceased to work once it was moved for the job, and working in the cold windy outdoors to make the siding that had to be cut to install the pipes functionally sealed and also looking good. Never once did he display annoyance at my concerns and didn't ask me to pay until ALL my concerns were addressed.

The causes of a wet basement

Did you know you can have water issues in your basement without heavy rains or obvious standing water? It's easy enough to see water coming through a crack in your floor or basement wall, but what's the real cause of your basement water problem?

clay bowl effect

The Clay Bowl Effect

Excavated soil that's replaced around a completed foundation isn't as dense and tightly packed as undisturbed soil farther away. As a result, water collects in the soil immediately surrounding the house, putting pressure on foundation walls and causing cracks.

hydrostatic pressure

Hydrostatic Pressure

As soil around your foundation becomes soaked with moisture, it expands and puts pressure on your foundation. The water will then work its way through any opening available, including cracks and openings around pipes or windows.


Before and After
  • Cherry Hill Home Foundation Repair and Basement Refinished
    Before
    Cherry Hill Home Foundation Repair and Basement Refinished
    After

    Cherry Hill homeowner had multiple cracks in his basement foundation and basement flooding. Quality 1st completed the foundation repair and fixed the cracks in the wall, waterproofed the basement using the WaterGuard draining system, then refinished the basement using ThermalDry Wall System. ThermalDry not only increases energy savings in the home as its foil face reflects heat back into the basement, but is made of inorganic materials which means it will not grow mold and will keep water out!
