For over 25 years, Quality 1st Basement Systems has been the trusted basement & foundation company of Ridgewood. Our high quality work and exclusive access to over 28 patented products set us apart in the home improvement industry. When working on basements, crawl spaces and foundations we are the safe choice for your home.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

Basements and crawl spaces consistently have issues with water, mold and rot. To prevent these problems from occurring in the future we install a patented interior drainage system. Water and moisture that enters the basement is captured, controlled and safely removed via the basement drain before you ever notice it. The drainage system also works as part of crawl space encapsulation. 

We Provide:
  • Basement Waterproofing
  • Crawl Space Encapsulation
  • Exclusive, Patented Products
  • Humidity Control
You Receive:
  • Permanently Dry Basement
  • Clean Protected Crawlspace
  • Protection against Mold
  • Improved Home Value

We also fix basement leaks with permanent basement leak repair. With our system in place there is no need to fear basement flooding. We want your basement to be safe for years so our work comes with a transferable lifetime dry-basement warranty. 

Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

Whatever the issue we are the trusted foundation repair contractor. Our foundation repair experts will visit your home, identify the issue and recommend the right solution. We provide permanent foundation repairs using non-invasive methods. There is no need to tear up your entire yard to fix the foundation.

Job Stories From Ridgewood, NJ
Putting a Stop to Basement Wetness in Ridgewood, NJ

Homeowner Lisa R. in Ridgewood had a consistently moist basement.  She even noticed that over time the cement block foundation was beginning to deteriorate and crumble in one place.  Lisa wanted a permanent solution to stop the wetness before it caused any more problems.

After contacting Quality 1st Basement Systems, a basement waterproofing specialist visited Lisa to complete a thorough interior and exterior inspection of her basement to determine the best solution to the problems she was experiencing.  He came up with an ideal plan to meet Lisa’s needs and provided her with a free estimate for the waterproofing products and work.  She wanted a drier basement, so she decided to have the work done.

A crew (headed by Project Manager Jesus Alvarez-Sanchez) mobilized to Ridgewood, NJ to fix Lisa’s basement.  They installed a WaterGuard (to channel and direct water seepage from one area); TrenchLock trench drains; a TripleSafe Sump Pump System and a SuperSump system; an IceGuard (designed to prevent flooding in the event of frozen discharge pipes); and a LawnScape outlet (to disperse discharge water away from the home and on the lawn). 

The SuperSump system is a powerful and efficient sump pump capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour out of the basement.  The TripleSafe system provides additional protection through the inclusion of a powerful primary pump backed by a secondary pump which kicks in if there is more water than the first pump alone.  Additionally, this system includes a battery back-up to provide ultimate protection in the event of a power failure, able to pump as much as 11,500 gallons on a fully charged battery.

Quality 1st Basement Systems helped to create a more secure, drier basement and Lisa R. was able to have peace of mind about her basement.   

A Super Solution for a Ridgewood, NJ Basement

Hurricanes are powerful storms and can induce water damage not typically experienced otherwise.  That is exactly what happened to a homeowner in Ridgewood, NJ.  He saw his partially-finished basement where he and his family spent time suddenly become inundated with nearly 8 inches of water.  This homeowner wanted to put precautions in place so that when he fixed the damage that occurred, he wouldn’t be put in such a position to lose property to storm waters again.  He called Quality 1st Basement Systems for help.

After inspection by a waterproofing specialist, the homeowner agreed to have a SuperSump system installed along with an IceGuard and LawnScape outlet.  The SuperSump system includes a powerful pump designed to pump 2,220 gallons of water per hour at an 8-foot head out of the basement.  The IceGuard is designed to prevent flooding in the event that discharge lines freeze in the colder months.  The LawnScape outlet swiftly and efficiently moves the pumped out water through the discharge line and disperses it away from the home on the lawn.

This homeowner was happy to have his basement back in order, dry and ready to become a family room again, all without the worry of rainy days!  Quality 1st Basement Systems was glad to meet this customer’s needs.     

SaniDry Dehumidifier Installation to Keep Moisture Out

Patel P. contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems for a free estimate when he thought a French drain would solve his basement waterproofing problems.  But, when waterproofing expert John Patterson assessed Patel P.’s space, he concluded that a TripleSafe sump pump, SaniDry dehumidifier, WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system, EverLast wall paneling system, and CleanSpace walling would be an appropriate and effective solution.

In a short two days, Juan Garcia and his crew installed each of these products to work together as a comprehensive solution for this leaky, wet basement.  The SaniDry basement dehumidifier is energy efficient and can cover any large space up to 2500 square feet.  This unit is the best in the industry for dehumidifying a moist basement.  The water around the perimeter of the basement was taken care of with the WaterGuard system.  This interior basement waterproofing system will drain water collected at the seam of the wall and floor and direct if to the TripleSafe sump pump and out of the basement.

The SaniDry basement dehumidifier will keep moisture out of Patel P.’s basement for years to come.  He will no longer have to worry about musty smells, or moist basement air, but can enjoy a clean, healthy basement!

Leaking Window Wells in Ridgewood, NJ

Water was leaking in to Raj S.’s basement and he didn’t know what the source was.  Luckily, the experts at Quality 1st Basement Systems came and found just the place and recommended a permanent solution.

Most of the water was leaking in through the basement windows as well as the walls.  Because of this, waterproofing expert Chris Aramburu suggested the installation of our EverLast wall restoration systems, SunHouse window enclosure, window well ducts, an UltraSump, and WaterGuard interior drainage system to direct water to the sump pump and out of the house.  Replacing basement windows wells and installing the SunHouse basement window enclosure was the perfect resolution for the leaky windows. 

Any water entering Raj. S.’s home would now be stopped by the comprehensive basement waterproofing system installed by Quality 1st Basement Systems.  He no longer has to worry about a wet basement and can rest assured that it will stay dry and clean all year round.

Dedicated Service for Your Wet Basement

Homeowner Richard Z. had a wet basement and decided to search online for a trustworthy basement waterproofing company.  He requested a free estimate from Quality 1st Basement Systems and waterproofing specialist Mike Bonfante went out to assess his situation.  He recommended the installation of a TripleSafe sump pump, WaterGuard interior basement waterproofing system, TrenchDrain, SaniDry dehumidifier and IceGuard waterproofing product. 

The TripleSafe is the leading sump pump in the industry because it is equipped with three pumps designed to take over for the other if there is an excessive amount of water or if one fails for any reason.  This will effectively keep water out of any wet or flooded basement.  For basement leaks along the walls and floor, our WaterGuard drainage system is the perfect solution.  It was specifically designed to sit above your footing to ensure it doesn’t get clogged from dirt or debris. 

A few months after these products were installed in his Ridgewood, NJ home, Richard Z. contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems to request the installation of their ThermalDry basement flooring.  It creates a thermal break between a finished basement and a cold concrete floor.  Now Richard can enjoy a water free basement, as well as a warm space for the whole family to enjoy!
