1.New York's proximity to the Great Lakes and Atlantic Ocean results in an average of more than 50 inches of rainfall during the year and abundant snowfall in the winter months.
2. When storms and flooding hits your area, your basement is most likely to be the prime target for water damage.
3. The unwanted water causes mold, mildew, rot, unpleasant odors and the basement air, if filled with odors, dust mite feces, humidity, and mold spores, will rise into the rest of the house, ruining the healthy environment of the home.

Our friend was very happy with the work Quality 1st did for her, she recommended the company very highly. The young man who dug the trench on the lawn did an excellent job, they cleaned up in the basement very nice. They were a great team. The salesman was very knowledgeable and the installation team was friendly.

Doylin and Diane N. of Curwensville, PA
After we had changed the contour of our back yard and patio area 2-3 years ago, we detected a small wet spot on our carpet in the finished family room. Every time it rained we would have the same wet spot that grew larger as big as 4'x6' area. Being on concrete floor in the lower level of a split entry home it was hard to get it completely dry and keep it dry before the next rain.
We had contacted several companies for suggestions and estimates. We were very satisfied with the friendly helpful attitude and service of Waterproofing Specialties. The work was completed in a short period of time and virtually no clean up. We were happy with the work and cost. We would recommend their work. Best of all we have not had a drop of water in a year and half.

This project was bigger than I expected. Even though it was explained to me the equipment and manpower required exceeded my expectations. I also requested a lot from the crew, Do not crush the sprinkler heads, do not ruin the landscaping, put the dirt somewhere it will not make a mess. They managed to do all of it and still fix my porch slab.
