Looking for recommendations for a company that waterproofs basements. I received a quote from US Waterproofing and it was ridiculous and didn't include exterior work. I called Permaseal and they will be quoting me this week. Is there another company anyone has used that they had positive experiences with? Bonus if you have some pictures of the before/during/after.

Hi everyone! One of my favorite things to do is investigate Google Maps and I have recently noticed Google labeling a neighborhood I have never seen before called Martin Luther. Please view the attached photo for the area. Did Google make this up or is it a real neighborhood nearby I just have never heard of?
