We asked
Mckees Rocks Waterproofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
to provide a free estimate for putting in an exterior french drain around 75% of our property, waterproofing the exterior and repointing the cracked foundation. The first thing that turned us off is that they sent a sales rep to the job instead of an actual contractor who would be on site performing the work. Another man showed up a few minutes later who said that he was a former sales rep but now seems to be a project manager. My boyfriend has a background in construction and engineering, so he walked them through what he wanted done from top to bottom, explaining in detail the process in which it took for it to be done and his expectations. This took about 1.5 hours. After my boyfriend thoroughly explained what we wanted done and showed his knowledge of the process, they proceeded to take us back to the kitchen to go through a 2" binder of material that we basically had already talked through at the walkthrough, pushing their special system that they created with NASA, instead of taking our word for what we wanted done (an external french drain, dug all the way to the footer of the house and waterproofing the outside and repointing the larger cracks). Their system included them only digging down 18" on the extrerior drain and putting an internal french drain in the basement. We specifically said multiple times that we did not want an internal system in the house, as the whole point of waterproofing the basement is to keep water OUT of the basement altogether. We realized that it would cost more, but were willing to pay more to get the job done right. They proceeded to go through this binder, trying to scare us with images of mold and houses with caved in foundations, when all we really wanted them to do was to acknowledge our wants and determine if they could take on the job. They kept insisting that water could still get in through the floor if we put in just the exterior french drain, and we acknowledged that that was a change we were willing to take, as we do not currently have any issues with water coming in through the floor, as it comes in through the walls. After an hour of this they finally quoted us a price ($32,000 for the extermal french drain...yeah, right...and $18,000 for their special "NASA" system). I'm sure they put such an outrageous number on the external french drain to convince us to do their system, but that is not what we want.
Long story short, they were nice guys, but we felt a bit insulted and annoyed that after 1.5 hours of my boyfriend explaining to them the in's and out's of french drains, home building, etc, that they still went through their sales pitch for an hour of things we already knew and had shown to them that we knew. We had other contractors (actual guys who do the work themselves) come to the house and speak to us and in 30 minutes agreed with our plan of attack and did not give us any sales pitch. One even said outright that he would be stupid to push any homeowner into somethign they didn't want after they went into so much detail. We accepted a quote for what we wanted from another company (for $14,800 - less than HALF of what

charged) and they quoted the special "NASA" system as

for $7000..again, less than half the cost (and they dug down below the freeze/thaw line).
In our minds, if NASA had the same issues that we have at our house they would want the same things that we do. That sales pitch may work on people who have no idea what they need to have done, or if they need a quick fix, but not on people who have the knowledge to back it up. I think that Everydry should stop over-selling and start listening to their customers. If it was something they couldn't or didn't want to do, then I wish they would've have wasted 3 hours of our time.
