Basement Waterproofing in Westchester, IL

I was very satisfied with Perma-Seal when they came to my home to seal around the gas line coming into my basement. I will definitely refer you to my neighbors if they have similar problems.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Basement Waterproofing in Glenview, IL

We had a great experience using Perma-Seal. The sales guy was really professional, took plenty of time to explain why the water seepage happens, showed us a really well designed computer presentation offered solutions and then followed up with a written bid. We compared 3 other companies and checked out references before having the work done by Perma-Seal.

Basement Waterproofing in Tinley Park, IL

I live in Tinley Park and I called Perma-Seal because my basement was leaking after every rain and they came out and gave a price quote. It was a lot of money to spend so I called another waterproofing company to get a second opinion. They was only dollars difference but there attitude and willingness to fix the problem made me choose them over the other people. They were all so nice and professional and worked quickly. We had our first big rain yesterday and there is no water in my basement.

My basement is as dry as can be after they waterproofed it. I am completely thrilled with the results I had. There's not one negative thing about this whole experience.

Basement Waterproofing in Barrington, IL

Water coming out of the basement drain and leaking from our basement walls was the issue at hand when we decided to hire this company. The cam showed roots and damage on the pipes that led to the city sewer from our catch basin. We hired Perma-Seal to resolve the issue of water in our basement last year several months after we purchased our new home. The service was timely, communication with the company representatives and contractors was easy and the amount we spent was worth the results. We have been and we will continue to recommend Perma-Seal to our friends and families because of their good service.

Basement Waterproofing in Chicago, IL

They were extremely professional and did excellent work. The workers kept everything very clean considering they were digging up our basement floor which can cause quite a mess. They worked quickly and there were no issues throughout the entire process. I would certainly recommend them to a friend. They are probably not the cheapest service out there, but when you're dealing with your foundation I would not want to be going with the cheapest, but the ones who do the job well.

Basement Waterproofing in Chicago, IL

I had water coming in through two spots in the basement. I was shown all options and pricing but Perma-Seal recommended the cheapest option for one of the leaks (the other was due to the access door) saying that he would be surprised if I needed anything more. Three years later and about four different torrential downpours and he is still right!!

Basement Waterproofing in Chicago, IL

Perma-Seal arrived on time on the designated date to perform the contracted services. All of the employees were very professional and knew their jobs very well. The work was performed in the allotted time frame and very little mess was left when you consider that a jackhammer was used, gravel for the drain was moved inside, and then fresh concrete was mixed and poured to cover the trench. I was very pleased with the work and have had no seepage since the work was done. It's great that the work has a lifetime warranty and is transferable to a new owner should I ever sell my home. Perma-Seal is a very well run organization and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anybody.

Basement Waterproofing in Chicago, IL

Perma-Seal sealed 6 cracks in my foundation. It was great! They came in and were done in about 4 hours. They cleaned up after themselves too and since then not a drop of water coming in. I love it, should've done this a long time ago.

Basement Waterproofing in Chicago, IL

Just terrific!! Smooth from beginning to end! My Agent, Don was kind, thorough and provided great information and education regarding my basement. He well prepared me for the work that the installation crew would complete. There were no surprises and the project was well done by a team of two super guys, who were professional, courteous and did a great job!

Basement Waterproofing in Chicago, IL

This company is great. The price was unbeatable and was the reason why I chose them over other companies. They arrived on time, worked quickly and efficiently, and were done all in one day! This company is very professional. The workers worked very hard and went nonstop for the most part. They do the best cleanup possible. I used to have water seepage in the basement but they have fixed this problem. I would highly recommend Perma-Seal!

Basement Waterproofing in Chicago, IL

I contacted Perma-Seal in an effort to determine the source of water in my basement, glass block installation, and replacement of my sump pumps. Dan McGowan came out, on time, and went over the entire basement. He was able to show me the source of the water in the basement (not foundation related), and provide estimates for work on the glass blocks and the sump pumps. I have two sump pumps - one sump pit and a "grey water" pit - both with pumps. Dan was able to advise me that the odor in my basement was due to the lack of seals on these pits, and included the pit seals in the estimate. He also noticed that the sewer pipe had leaked at some point, but would benefit from re-packing. I decided to complete this project first. I called to schedule my installation and spoke with Rosie in the call center. She was awesome, friendly, and very helpful. Scheduling was a breeze! On the day of the installation, I was contacted by the crew and advised that they would be there in approximately 30 minutes, which was within their provided 2 hour time frame. The workers arrived, put booties on their feet to prevent water/mud from getting in the house and got to work. The guys were friendly enough, and demonstrated that the pumps were functioning correctly. Overall this was a great experience. I highly recommend Perma-Seal and their staff. I won't hesitate to use them in the future for the glass block installation.
