About Us

The most honest NJ basement waterproofing company is A-1 Basement Solutions

In fact, our honesty was proven by TODAY SHOW hidden cameras! At A-1 Basements, we are neat and clean, on-time, reliable and affordable. From moving your washer/dryer and covering it with plastic to cleaning up each day, we take care of all the details so you don’t have to. We do  NJ Basement Waterproofing and Foundation Crack Repairs and Mold Remediation and all things Basement Related.

At A-1 Basement Solutions we are passionate about NJ Basement waterproofing. We  teach people how to have dry and healthy basements even during a power outage.

Teaching is at the core of what we do:

  • Our Basement School Blog has numerous articles about all subjects basement related.
  • Our Free Guide “The Ultimate Basement Guide: Why Basements Get Wet and how we will make yours dry” helps to give you a fundamental education about how your basement was constructed and how it changes over time.
  • We publish an educational column on The Alternative Press called Basement School.
  • We teach an Adult School class called “Keeping Your Basement Dry and Healthy” in six local communities.
  • We teach seminars at Real Estate Offices here in New Jersey entitled “Helping Sellers with their Cellars” and “Know you’re Dry Before you Buy”.

You get the idea, we believe that Knowledge is Power. We want to help you be incredibly educated and informed about your basement. The reason for this is simple; if you know why your basement gets wet before we provide our Free Basement Inspection, the appointment will go better because you are well informed. Then we can spend more time discussing the solutions to your problems.
