Dick: "3 of them" are the "they" I was talking about. The problem is with alot of specialists is that they speciallize. If the three of them all specialize in interior drains that is what they will requemend. As you say the decks and driveways and landscape is a consideation but a specialist in outside drain may be able to solve that some of that.
I do agree much can be said about pressure under the floor, after the floor broke in my dads house we lowered the drain tile to below the footing on the outside, I beleive that is where all drains should be.
