I met with Laura to discuss finishing my basement and gave her background on how I am pretty handy and have family in construction - she told me right away she had the perfect solution for me and that it would allow me to save money. We decided to proceed with the RimJoint Spray foam and Foamax insulation. The crew came on the day of install on time and worked really good and fast all while doing an excellent job and cleaning up after themselves.

I chose this company because of the system that they use to collect the water and because they were less invasive. Other companies would have dug up more floor area and not have the catch system that Quality 1st uses.

We got off to a rocky start - the service guys had a flat on the way in & no one informed us about it. But once the project was started, Victor and his crew were excellent, going above & beyond in some cases. They were also neat - putting down tarps & putting up a protective plastic wall, so the entire basement didn't get dusty from the digging. We will definitely use them again for the 2 bedrooms in our basement.

Review by in Randolph, NJ
Work was good overall, but some misunderstandings resulted regarding some aspects of the job occurred. An office worker gave me a starting date, but no one came or even called that day . There was another day set up where they showed up and did pretty thorough work, which was the least expensive of about 5 different estimates.

I couldn’t be more pleased with how Quality 1st Basement handled my problem. We have an area in our home on a slab consisting of 2 rooms and a hall. Over the years the center of the area, which is 22’X12’, dropped about 2.5 inches, and less at the foundations. I had contractors in who wanted to tear the floor up, others that wanted to put leveling cement down, and some who had no idea. Then I found Quality 1st Basement. Jeff came, spent almost 2 hours with us walking us through the PolyLEVEL process, and answering all our questions and concerns. We contracted the next morning, and scheduled the job for 2 weeks out. The 2-man crew just came. They explained the procedure, what they were going to do, and how, and answered all my questions. Then they suggested how to proceed based on issues that cropped up. In less than 3 hours they were done, including clean up. The floor is now completely level, done quickly, at a fraction of the cost of other alternatives. Jeff, the crew, and the office were great and did a wonderful job. I would highly recommend Quality 1st Basement.

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate.
