Q) Problem w/basement flooding,a Waterproofing company charged me $14,219 to correct....Two of the firms inspectors INSISTED underground water was being forced up into cellar...VIA HYDROSTATIC PRESSURE and ONLY a "French" drain would correct it...

A) Unforntuately,it sounds like you have been taken by a COMMON SCAM perpetrated by SO-called waterproofing experts.These snake-oil salesmen use high pressure tactics and scary words...to pressure consumers into hiring them for EXPENSIVE and almost-always UNNECESSARY repairs.....advice is to SUE the contractor for not correcting the problem and for FRAUD....ONLY through ACTIONS like these mostly disreputable THEIVES cease stop taking advantage of the COUNTLESS victims like yourself
