    Customer Testimonial

              As I write this letter of commendation, it is raining and promises to become a monsoon within the next three days, however my basement is bone-dry thanks to Quality 1st Basement Systems. Your crew (led by Juan) was extremely knowledgeable, professional and courteous. They even cleaned the basement floor. They did a beautiful job as well as they complied with my curiosity. I am very pleased with their work. I want you to know that your interview and advance preparation of documentation as well as satisfactory answers to my several questions were the determining factors regarding my choice of companies. I now know more than most housewives about basements. You can be sure I will highly recommend Quality 1st Basement Systems to my friends in the future.

    A new homeowner in Staten Island, New York had water in their basement and contacted Quality 1st for a solution. Our System Design Specialist went to inspect the basement and noticed the signs of water and recommended a waterproofing system be installed. WaterGuard was installed along the perimeter of the basement and underneath the floor slab to make sure the system does not clog. WaterGuard collects the water that seeps in through the basement walls and floors and directs it to the sump pump. The SuperSump sump pump was installed in the basement to keep it dry for extended periods of time, even during heavy water intrusion. The SuperSump is capable of pumping 2,220 gallons of water per hour out of an 8-foot head out of the basement. This system is perfect for occasional water issues, but nothing severe.
