An update on the flood...

Well, we got some quotes, and none of them were the same. Go figure...

We decided to go with one company for everything (waterproofing, regrading and the interlocking), this way it's one ass to kick if anything goes wrong. Also, it's one company that knows what's going on, rather than having two or three, having to discuss things back and forth. We're hopefully thinking this is the right way to do things.

Anyways, we've decided that since we need to go ahead and fix the cracks AND regrade the backyard, we're also going to redo the interlocking bricks in the back and at the front of the house. Woo.

We may as well do everything now, it needs to be done...

I think we'll lick our wounds and redo the interlock at the side next year or something...or cry. ;)

The thing that sucks badly (besides the mucho dinero) is that I'm going to lose my garden boxes when they start doing all the repairs. Oh well. It DID look nice for a while.

I love HGTV. Any before and after pics? You'll need it anyway for insurance and in case things go screwy anyway, right?

What a pain in the arse...and I agree with the part about one arse to kick!

Hey, at least you have an excuse for your garden boxes. I simply kill things and then try to figure it out ;0)

I feel ya though...seems I'll be looking at a roof soon in addition to re-sloping gutters etc. Crikey.

Oh, I'm so sorry, Rhonda. I hope things don't spiral too far out of control. Flooding is the pits.

Good luck with all the renos/repairs! The price tag will suck but hopefully the results will be well worth it!!

Smiles! :o)
