Before I called you I had a salesmen for an out-of-town basement waterproofing company look at my water problem and his recommendation did not make nearly as much sense as yours.  Clearly he was selling the company product whereas you diagnosed the actual problem and provided me a solution that was tailored to it.

Last night, after the rain fell all day long, I came home to a dry basement. It looks as if you hit the nail on the head with that leaky basement!

I went to your website and spent an educational hour or more surfing! You have certainly taken a great deal of care in putting useful information out to educate your consumers.
