Basement Waterproofing in Garden Prairie, IL

After having 2 major basement floods and a few minor ones over the years, I decided to throw in the towel and give Perma-Seal a call. A rep came out a few days later and assessed my situation and gave me an estimate on the spot. The price was lower than I thought it would be. The salesman was very professional and 'no pressure'. He did inform us, though, that they were so busy they wouldn't be able to install the system until the first week of October and this was the last week of June, 2009! I kept my fingers crossed during the weeks prior to the install that we wouldn't have anymore flooding rains. The crew came on the first of October and was finished the next afternoon. I'm writing this on July 24, 2010, after over 7 inches of rain fell on Chicago in less than 12 hours. I'm very pleased to say that my basement remained bone dry. It's so dry that my dehumidifier didn't even turn on. THANK YOU, PERMA-SEAL! I waited to write this review because I wanted to wait and see if the system could handle an Armageddon-ish rainstorm and it passed with flying colors! My poor neighbors are all bailing out their basements and I feel sorry for them. Needless to say I'm overjoyed with the Perma-Seal system in my basement. The only reason I didn't give them 5 stars is because the crew left a bit of a mess for me to clean up, mainly concrete dust.

Interior Drain System Installation in Des Plaines, IL

They were very competitive in pricing, I got more for less than the other top basement waterproofer. We needed the interior drain system, and got our cracks filled in the walls and a bubbler discharge line, and still saved [money] over the other bids. We did get 3 other bids, and chose them as an established company, and when they said it would be done in one day we signed on the line. The date of the work was about 2 months out, which gave us plenty of time to clear out years of stuff stored downstairs, and we had to move the washer and dryer and slop sink or laundry tub, we did our own disconnect and re connect of the laundry tub, and saved more money ( they add charges for a plumber to come out) and we moved anything else we did not want to move away from the walls, and we covered everything with tarps. They arrived on time, actually early,and did not waste a minute getting to work. It will be loud and you will clean up dust, but considering the job done, it was not that bad. I did not get the battery back up pump, but may in the future, it is recommended, but my neighbors don't have them, and we have a generator in case of power outages. Seepage control is not sewer back up control, so it that is your issue, you will need to have another type of plumbing work done. It has been a pleasure to not have to step over seepage trails, it has been a wet week or 2 here, and not a drop of water to be found! Most towns have a rebate for waterproofing or flood proofing, and I will be taking advantage of that too.

Drainage System Installation in Evanston, IL

We have heard Perma-Seal advertisements for years particularly impressed with the transferable warrantee. The salesperson oversold the service because I didn't need any convincing. We were very happy with the work they did - initially and the follow up for the bubbler pot outside. They are fast and efficient - respectful and thorough and clean. I recommend it to everyone and if we ever move to another house, the first thing we will do is call Perma-Seal.

Drainage System Installation in Schererville, IN

Did the job quickly, neatly, and at a fair price. Easy to work with, pleasant to deal with. Finished basement a few months ago, no water or seepage since.

Flood Control System Installation in Chicago, IL

Perma-Seal completed a couple jobs for me. First, they installed exterior drain tiles to fix a seepage issue. Then, they solved a sewer backup problem by installing a flood control system in my front yard. From the salesman to the plumber to the crew, all are hard working and professional. They even saved me $$ by digging around the sidewalk rather than breaking the concrete which would have cost extra to replace. All in all, these guys are expensive but well worth it.

Drainage System Installation in Downers Grove, IL

We had Perma-Seal install a drainage system that keeps the water out of the basement during the heavy rain. As the other reviews mention it did take a while to get an appointment but that I guess is reality of their availability after a big storm The sump pump system is interesting and well designed since it has a battery backup so if our power goes out the pump will still function. System was put in about year and half ago and we have had no water issues since. I would recommend.

Basement Windows Replacement in Bartlett, IL

We needed our single pane basement windows replaced. I scheduled several companies for bids, Perma-Seal had the lowest bid by a few thousand dollars, but the quality of the windows is just as good if not better than the competition. The install was great, no real mess to speak of. The installers took their time and did the job right. I will use Perma-Seal again in the future if needed. Very pleased with the whole experience.

Basement Waterproofing in Antioch, IL

You are very fortunate to have Dan McGowan, Maurillio and crew in your employ. Dan was very informative and answered all my questions. It was his demeanor compared to another company that I decided to go with your company. I would also like to add that Maurillio and crew were on time and very polite and worked very diligently. Maurillio made sure everything was cleaned before leaving. Thank you. You have a great company and I will “pass it on.”
