Our Company

Our History

Perma-Seal was founded in 1979 by Roy Spencer. After working for two other large waterproofing companies, he was dissatisfied with the low ethical standards and the "patch now and service 'em later" repairs that were commonplace in the industry. It was then that he started Perma-Seal, right here in the western suburbs, so that he could provide permanent repairs and be able to stand behind that work with integrity. Today, thanks to our loyal customers, we've grown to become Chicagoland's most trusted waterproofing and foundation repair company.

Why Perma-Seal is Your BEST Choice

Perma-Seal uses the most advanced products and repair methods in the industry, constantly evaluating our materials in search of the best solution for your basement, crawl space or foundation problems. Many of our product and service solutions have been developed in response to our clients' needs and requests. Recently we've added a superior sewer backup prevention solution, as well as basement plumbing solutions to our array of offerings. We offer the best warranties in the industry that are fully transferable to any new owners; many for the life of the structure. Most importantly, our competitive, no-haggle pricing assures that you're getting a fair price without the stress of playing the negotiating game.
