came to house to see about water leak in basement in Monee, IL
The foundation consultant john ferguson from the downers grove il office was out at my house this morning for a water leak in my basement i called about. and he found out problem was with a frozen downspout pipe. i also recently had a flooded basement because my sump pumps went out. he gave me information on some good products that i am going to be purchasing as well shortly for sump pump monitoring and preventative maintenance program and basement dryer. he was very knowledgable and very professional. i learned alot about the services you provide and i will be having your company do a couple of the items he discussed with me. he also went above and beyond for me. my car was stuck in a frozen snowdrift in my driveway. he was so nice and helped me shovel it out and pushed the car for me to get the car unstuck. he was so nice and so knowledgable about all services provided.

Estimate in Naperville, IL
Chris Hayden came out do do an estimate on my moms place. He was very knowledgeable as we walked all around the house. Never tried to over sell me on anything. I've used Perma-Seal before and would use them again. I highly recommend calling them and see if Chris Hayden can come out.

Evaluation in Wilmette, IL
Reuben Gonzales came to my home to evaluate the leakage into my basement. He was thorough, unrelenting in his pursuit of the leaks, patient, honest, and was not seeking to sell me an expensive fix. He said that it was cheaper to open the dry wall in a few places to see whether the foundation had cracks rather then digging up a trench 4 feet deep by 20 feet long. I agreed and he opened the wall in two places. I ran the garden hose and he said the leak is above grade and that I DID NOT need a waterproofing company but some one who does masonry work. Perma-seal does not do that work. Other companies wanted $2000 for a membrane plus an additional charge for each crack found. Being so honest, how does Perma-seal stay in business?

A shoutout for Kenneth Allen Laundie, who came out on a very cold day and performed the inspection with professionalism and courtesy.

Basement Waterproofing in Schaumburg, IL
I used to dread heavy rainstorms & spring thaws because if a saw a lake in my backyard I knew there was also one in the basement. This was a totally unusable floor of my house. I called Permaseal, they came out & did a complete & professional inspection explaining in detail what they were going to do. At the install I didn't know how they were going to get all that cement out of my basement but they did it all in one day and left the place spotless. The next major rain came 2 days later - I gingerly tiptoed down my basement stairs not knowing what to expect - DRY DRY DRY!!! And it has been DRY ever since 2 yrs later. I have now reclaimed my entire basement as a living space. Thank you Permaseal!!!

Basement Waterproofing in Schaumburg, IL

I have been a PermaSeal customer for over nine years. I truly am so pleased that I selected your organization to perform my waterproofing needs all those years ago! Since that time, I have really only had two occasions to call for additional assistance. Every representative I have encountered has been a pleasure to deal with.

Yesterday, I had two of your employees (Ramone and Isbi) here to fix a window well drain. I really can't say enough good things about them! They were extremely dedicated to determining the cause of my problem and then taking all the necessary steps to fix it. Aside from their technical skills, I truly need to make mention of the fact they exhibited characteristics that you really can't teach employees. They were extremely courteous, considerate, pleasant, respectful and professional. I sincerely mean these things and could five examples of each comment but let it suffice to say they deserve all of these accolades. I would feel so comfortable welcoming them into my home again!

Please pass on my appreciation to these two employees. They are wonderful representatives of the great PermaSeal organization.

Sincerely,
Jim and Jody O.

Waterproofing in Evanston, IL

We have heard Permaseal 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 waterproofing 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 Permaseal.

Waterproofing in Libertyville, IL

Professionals that saved me from wasting a lot of money, and they did high quality, on time, professional waterproofing work.     

I received other bids for over $3,000 to fix a leak that I had.  

Dan McGowan, the Perma Seal representative quickly explained that Perma-Seal's proprietary process would get the job done with a warranty for around $200.       

Crew showed up on time.  Done in 25 minutes.  Work area left cleaner than before they started.   Lifetime warranty on the seal.     

What could be better?     

You can trust Dan with his estimates and suggestions.  

You can trust that Perma Seal will deliver the goods.

Waterproofing in Chicago, IL

After years of water in our basement, we finally decided to do something about it. We called Perma Seal to come and take a look and found we had cove seepage. Joe Sindelar was the associate we met with for our free estimate and he was AWESOME!!! He went over everything with us step by step and set up a date to start the work. We are very pleased with the job Joe and the crew from Perma Seal did on our home. I definitely recommend Pema Seal to anyone and everyone!!! We are already looking into having Perma Seal replace our water heater in the near future. Keep up the good work!!!

Waterproofing in Harwood Heights, IL

I had seepage in my basement and the company was able to send out a sales consultant right away. Jeff came out and figured out the problem very quickly and was able to give an estimate that I felt was very reasonable. Jeff was very thorough and professional. The installers came out a couple of weeks later and fixed my problems in only one hour. Overall experience from the office staff, consultant to the installers was excellent. I recommend Perma-Seal to everyone!

Basement Humidity in Naperville, IL

I bought a dehumidifier from them last year (Sanidry) and it has totally changed the way my basement smells.  High humidity was never really a problem down there, but the Sanidry is the real deal when it comes to fighting odors.

Waterproofing in Munster, IN

Did the waterproofing 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.

I prefer to talk to these waterproofing guys rather than anyone else, super knowldegable.

Waterproofing in Chicago, IL

Permaseal 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.

Waterproofing 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 $$ 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.

Victor did a great job explaining the waterproofing options to us and explaining what he was going to do. We did not talk to Francisco but he was friendly and smiled. They did a good job cleaning up and we are happy with the experience.
