Jay Hugee from Quality 1st Basements

Jay has been working in the Basement Waterproofing industry for over 7 years. This experience has given him a good understanding of the importance of providing a thorough inspection to make sure all the homeowner’s concerns are addressed during a waterproofing inspection.

Jay explains to customers how he can accomplish their basement goals. He guides each homeowner through the entire process from start to finish. His attention to detail, customer service, and extensive product knowledge make him a tremendous asset to the team and to each homeowner he meets. Jay feels he has the best career since he gets to travel throughout New Jersey, meeting incredibly interesting people, while helping them dramatically improving their home.

In his spare time, Jay enjoys photography, is a natural bodybuilder and spending quality time creating memories with his fiance.

  • TripleSafe Sump Pump System Installed in NY, NY

    A New York homeowner contacted Quality 1st Basements after realizing their sump pump system was no longer functioning properly causing water to seep through the walls. Our Foreman, Wilver and his team removed the failing sump pump and replaced it with our TripleSafe Sump Pump System. Not only does the TripleSafe have three sump pumps inside to handle large amounts of water but also has a built-in alarm system to alert homeowners in case of serious flooding during a hurricane. 

  • Nasty Crawl Space in Hollis, NY
    Nasty Crawl Space in Hollis, NY

    Quality 1st Basements completely transformed this nasty and damp crawl space into a dry and healthy area underneath the home of Hollis, NY homeowner. Quality 1st encapsulated the crawl space to seal it off from the harmful outside environment. Since the homeowner's heater and pipes were located in the crawl space, the pipes would freeze and the heater would have to work extra hard to heat the home.

    The crew installed SilverGlo, a heat barrier to reflect heat back into the crawl space. This will lower the cost of their heating bill and prevent their pipes from freezing! The CleanSpace liner was installed over the SilverGlo to the walls and floor to prevent water seepage and moisture in the future. The homeowner was amazed at the transformation and relieved that they no longer had to worry about water again!
