I used Mark Dane. He is an independent contractor and the price was much lower. He id a great job. 416 524 6383
My (ex) husband had three different companies out to diagnose our problem and offer solutions. All solutions involved tearing up the ground outside the house, on the premise that there was (a) no weeping tile or (b) it had been broken up over the years and needed to be replaced. Given the space is narrow between my house and the next, a mini-cat couldn't be used: it would have to be dug out by hand, carried out by wheelbarrow to temporarily put the dirt and soil in a container while work was done, then manually truck it all back. Costs were variable between $15 and $20K. We didn't get it done.
Two years ago my sump pump died. I had Bosco plumbers over to replace it. They installed a backflow preventer as well. My basement has been dry ever since. If you're not having weeping from the walls (mine was all from seam cracks between the base of the shoulder walls --the basement had been lowered--and the floor) then that might be all you need. The cost came in under 2K, if I remember correctly.
