I just had a French Drain installed in my basement by Wilver Cardoza and his crew and what an amazing job they did. Wilver and his crew were so professional with each and every detail that went into the installation and the process. I am so excited and pleased with the system and will be recommending this company to all my family, friends and coworkers. Thank you very much Quality 1st Basement for such an amazing job.

Juan Garcia and his crew waterproofed a basement for me. They worked all day non-stop and completed the job quicker than I anticipated. The basement was left very clean. You would never know jackhammers breaking up concrete to do the job were ever there. Whatever questions I had were answered to my satisfaction. Juan is an excellent representative of Quality 1st and I would highly recommend the company based on Juan Garcia and his work crew.

The installation crew arrived on time and proceeded to work immediately. I never thought they would complete the job in one day but they did. They worked non stop and cleaned the basement up removing all debris which was no easy job. They carried buckets and buckets of concrete up a flight of stairs and into their truck. There was nothing remaining to take care of. It was one of the neatest construction jobs I have ever seen. I would highly recommend this company to anyone. The personnel I dealt with were all very professional and helpful.

The installation went very well. They showed up on time, worked continuously throughout the one day job, three workers, very clean, courteous, and did a very good job, overall. A little pricey, but well worth the extra cost. The brochure they sent out was excellent and the booklet explained everything in detail which I hadn’t gotten from any other companies’ estimates. The salesman from Quality 1st came with a laptop to show everything and explained things well.

I searched for a long time for a company to waterproof my basement. I met with five different companies and finally decided on quality 1st. If it was only because they offer the best system at the best price for the needs of my home I would not be writing this review. Of all the companies I met with quality 1st drew up the best design plans. When I decided to alter the design plan to accommodate the changing designs of the basement they easily and expertly complied. The work was performed in one day and if it wasn't for the fresh coat of concrete at perimeter of the basement you would have never known they were there. There was a small issue that I had where they didn't put enough concrete at the base of the stairs. I called Juan(the foreman on the job) and he came out the next day(Sunday) to correct the problem. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with this company. I would not hesitate to hire them again.
"This year, hurricane Sandy left my family and me with a lot of mess to clean up. Before Sandy, I had a fully finished basement,..."
This year, hurricane Sandy left my family and me with a lot of mess to clean up. Before Sandy, I had a fully finished basement, but the hurricane left nothing but the four walls and wooden frame. This was the moment in which I had to make a decision of what to do next. I was afraid that I now had to deal with contractors and had to go through all the nine-yards. However, I made the right decision by calling Quality1stBasement. Nick Biris, my salesman, was very respectful and compassionate towards me and my situation. His knowledge regarding possible products and plans for renovation was remarkable. I had a detailed discussion with Nick on what I could do in my basement; at no point did he try to sell me anything, but instead focused on my predicament. He made his recommendations, but the end decision was mine. He went through the entire process with me, educating me on weak areas in the basement that allowed water in. After our discussion, the proposal he came up with included the items which would help the most at a fair price. He was not at all like other salesmen who try to oversell. Quality1stBasement's Installation crew, led by Juan Garcia, were hardworking people who did an impeccable job. They were on time every day and were very careful and neat with all their work. Even though there was a lot of concrete breaking, they put plastic up, covered items and moved things out of the basement before starting; they did not rush their work, and were very considerate in making sure other parts of the house did not get dust. They worked in a very professional manner, and cleaned up all the leftover mess before thy left. The workmanship of the whole crew was remarkable; it was evident that they took pride and care in their work. It was great experience with Quality1stbasement, and the finished product shows the dedication and care of their hardworking crew. Now, I hope the product itself delivers what it supposed to.

Intruding water in the basement was damaging this home in Staten Island, NY. An inspector from Quality 1st Basement Systems inspected the home and instructed the installation team to repair the water leakage. A CleanSpace wall liner was installed to stop water vapor from permeating the walls and to drain foundation wall leaks. A WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System was installed around the inside perimeter of walls to drain the water to the TripleSafe sump pump. The TripleSafe sump pump was installed to pump out water from this basement and this homeowner now has a dry basement all year round.
Fixing a dirt crawl space is a HUGE improvement to the home, which is not a terribly expensive repair and not disruptive to the home. The crawl space of this Staten Island home had a dirt crawl space which was causing damp air throughout the ENTIRE home. The damp air was uncomfortable and causing heating and coolin costs to rise. Quality 1st Basement Systems sealed off this crawl space from the earth using CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. This crawl space and home is not safe, healthy, and dry!
This Staten Island home flooded due to a huge rain storm. The flood caused damage to the floors and walls of the basement. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed ThermalDry basement flooring which is completely waterproof. ThermalDry comes in many different basement flooring color options and will never be damaged in the event of water in the basement which makes it the best solution for basement flooring. This homeowner now has a comfortable, dry, beautiful basement.
The owner of this crawl space in Staten Island, NY contacted Quality 1st Basement Systems regarding insulating his crawl space. He had noticed that cold air was entering the rest of his home from the crawl space which was costing him more in utility bills. Quality 1st Basement Systems installed a complete crawl space encapsulation system which included SilverGlo insulation and the CleanSpace crawl space vapor barrier. This homeowner has noticed a significant difference in the temperature of his home and has a new, healthy space to use for storage.
This Staten Island homeowner had concerns about water intrusion coming from the foundation floor in her basement. The installation crew from Quality 1st Basement Systems solved the water leakage problem by installing the WaterGuard Basement Waterproofing System, a TripleSafe Sump Pump System, and a UltraSump Sump Pump for additional protection. The best basement flooring option for this homeowner was to install MillCreek waterproof flooring to finish the basement floor. This homeowner now has a dry basement all year long that she doesn't have to worry about when heavy rain falls.
This crawl space had water coming in through the walls. The homeowners had discussed the problem with their friends who had work done by Quality 1st Basement Systems the year prior and recommended giving us a call.
