Q:

I’m at my wits end. In the last heavy rain storm, my basement flooded and ruined some storage I had down there. My husband called in a water proofing contractor who says that we have a problem with the foundation and that he can fix it for $12,000. We don’t have that kind of money. Are there any other options?
