Exterior Waterproofing Advice

I need to do get an exterior waterproofing repair done for an old bunaglow house. I was quoted approx. $2250 for the following repair steps.

Any feedback on the repair steps? Is it reasonable for the price? Is there anything missing or need to be questioned?

1. Excavate 15 ft by 5 1/2 ft deep (approx.) along the right side of house.
2. Expose foundation wall.
3. Clean foundation wall, fill in any holes and bracks with hydraulic cement.
4. Remove old weeping time drainage system (if any)
5. Replace with new 4" weeping tile drainage system with filter cloth
6. Apply blue skin adhesive and blue skin rubber membrane for the primary waterproofing layer
7. Apply a dimpled membrane for the secondary waterproofing layer
8. Cover weeping drainage sytem with 3/4 gravel
9. Backfill excavated area with original soil

I'd say the price sounds about right.
Why just one side of the house ?
Where will the weeping tiles drain ?

What is being done about grading, gutters and downspout extensions to keep the water away in the first place?

As to the bid, it's always best to get 3 or more local bids so you can compare and ask questions.
