Its like baking a beautiful cake, and forgetting to add the icing on the cake. My sump pumps empties into my backyard. With all of this rain we received in North Jersey this year, my yard is saturated with water. Cost to install a French drain was surprising. When you talk to the contractor, make sure you talk about the discharging of the water. Overall they did a wonderful job.

Quality of work seems great so far. All members of staff were very nice to work with. I had a few issues with the way the basement/ lawn was left but after letting them know they sent someone out to rectify everything

Review by in South Bound Brook, NJ
Project: Eliminate Toxic Materials or Mold
I contacted A-1 Basement Solutions for mold remediation in the cellar of my home. The two men who came out, Scott and Mike, were great. The did a great job of explaining everything as to what they were doing and the process. They were very efficient and respectful to the fact that I was working from the home at the time of service. In addition to the two men who came out, everyone I was in contact with was very courteous and helpful from Nicolas the rep to Devin in the office, A-1 is top notch.

Highly recommended! We were selling our home and a crawl space water issue came up on the inspection. The A-1 owner (Doug) came out to investigate the problem the day we called and presented a waterproofing solution on that same visit. The efficient and professional A-1 crew got the work done quickly and we were thankfully able to proceed with our sale. Doug was a really partner in getting our problem solved.

Good initial impression- made big promises but failed to deliver I hired them based on reviews and gave them contract to do mold remediation, install french drain and also to install a window. I was looking for an experienced company who can handle all the tasks instead of me going to different contrators and hiring them. So Two Major issues with the quality of their work and also with they business ethics - They quoted me $700 to install a window as part of the total package. The right way to install this window is to have it connect to french drain ( for older houses anyways) - They installed the french drain but said they cant handle a window in the basement of the that size of a Egress window. Now I have to break into the concrete and dig to get to the pipe that they installed and have a third party do a window for me. - Hired another contractor from home advisor and they are asking me a minimum of $7000 to do this work which was supposed to be part of the work A1 basement should have done - Not only this, their sump pump is throwing water out of the house at a location which is slanted towards the house and if it rains , its likely water will go back into the house So not sure how they got all these good reviews considering they did not go anything correctly in the contract that I gave to them :(
Response by A-1 Basement Solutions: This customer correctly stated that he is trying to get a $7,000 egress window from us for $700. Here is the problem, we don't install egress windows. Never sold or installed one. It's not our business. It is not in the contract. He hired us for a French drain and replacement basement window. The Building Inspector told him he could not have a bedroom in the basement without an egress window which is the code. So then Sunil is trying to get us to do it for him for $700. I, of course, say no. WE DO NOT INSTALL EGRESS WINDOWS, I tell him time He stiffed us for over $3,000 on the bill and I am seeking remedy through the Court.

I was very pleased with the service I received. I had to reschedule on 2 occasions and Lina was more than accommodating. The 2 gents (can't recall names)that did the work were on time and professional. I would recommend this company.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
