Legal Question

Asked on: 4/09/13, 9:00 am

My basement was flooding three years ago. I called a big company to come out and fix the walls and put in new drain tile. The company recommended a new product to keep the walls from moving in my basement. Over the last 2 years I have complained that the walls are moving, and now the City Inspector says the walls are dangerously close to falling apart in some areas. When I first had the work done, they gave me a guaranty and a warranty (which are still in the time period described on the contract) I remodeled the basement. Twice now I have had to pay out of my pocket to take down drywall so they could inspect. Now they are out here again and telling me I have to do it again at my expense. I refuse to pay these expenses AGAIN (nearly $10,000 to remodel basement based on their guaranty). Is there anything I can do to make them pay for the destruction they want to do so they can see how much damage there is to my basement walls?
