Find source of water in La Grange Park, IL
We were both very satisfied with Robert Barscewski, the consultant who came out to figure out why we had some water in our crawl space. The source of the problem was our water pump, it had something stuck near the pump that was preventing it from working. Robert is an honest straight shooter, and we were very satisfied with his prompt service call. We would highly recommend this Perma-Seal company to others. Thank you!

Crawl Space Encapsulation System in St. Charles, IL
Excellent job by the Perma-Seal team! Chris Hayden did a great job of inspecting my crawl space, reviewing my options and recommending the right solution. In addition, he stopped by on the morning of the installation to review the scope and schedule with me and the installation team. The installation team arrived on time and with all of the materials they needed. The installation was done in a professional manner and they completed the job on time. They did a great job of working around my family and did not disturb my home office business. I have not had a moisture or smell problem in the crawl space since the installation was completed. I will recommend Perma-Seal to anyone needing a crawl space solution!

Foundation Repair, Drainage System Installed & Upgraded Sump Pump System in St. Charles, IL
I battled leakage from a useless ash pit located next to my basement fireplace for many years. Because it only seemed to cause an issue after ongoing, ground saturating rains I put up with the inconvenience of sucking water out with a shop-vac and dumping it into either the existing sump pit or laundry room sink when it filled up after sucking the water every 10-15 minutes so it would not flood my family room. This happened a couple times a year, but last winter & spring were the final straws. After coming home after a weekend getaway to a completely flooded family room due to a heavy winter rain that seeped down my foundation due to frozen ground, I'd had enough and decided to do something about it as soon as the ground thawed. Unfortunately, a flooding, ongoing rain hit before I made any calls and I spent 48 hours, sucking water out of that ash pit EVERY 5 minutes around the clock...dumping 108, 6 gallon shop-vacs into the sump pit!!! I spoke with several companies but at this point I really wanted the "Cadillac"; of companies and called PermaSeal because I'd heard & read nothing but rave reviews. When Ron Rodriguez came out to assess the issue, he showed me a detailed power point presentation that explained the process and answered all of my questions! He was so personable and professional that it really eased my concerns and I was convinced I had made the right decision. The work crew was also amazing! They were all so pleasant and so consciensus about maintaining the condition of my yard while doing the deep trenching required to repair the issue. They also completed the job in an unbelievable time span. The 8-10 foot deep trench across the front of my house was opened up the first day and when they cleaned things up to leave for the day, I panicked a bit due to a heavy rain forecast for that night! When I talked to the foreman, he said, "you are good to go - no worries... Your drainage pipes are installed and connected to your new sump system that's working just fine!" It poured "pitch forks & hammer handles" that night and although I camped out in the basement to keep an eye on the ash pit, it stayed "bone dry"...and has been ever since!!! The work was completed by noon the day and my yard was immaculate! I could not recommend PermaSeal's quality and the people who make up every aspect of their business more highly!

Leveling sidewalk in Crown Point, IN
This is an update to a previous review I had written. When I wrote my review I was very unsatisfied with the job that was done, shortly after writing my review I received a call from Permaseal asking about why I was so dissatisfied with the job. I explained how it was not fixed like we were told it would be. They offered to come out and check it out and redo it. Mark and his crew showed up today and redid the sidewalk and it looks really great, it is nice and level now. I have to say I never expected them to make it right because so many companies now don't seem to care anymore. My hat is off to Permaseal as far as I am concerned now they are a very good company, they stand behind their work. Mark (I'm sorry I didn't get his last name) was wonderful about making everything right, very professional and extremely courteous. If you need good quality work done don't hesitate to contact Permaseal, they are one of few companies that really stands behind their product and work.

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?

Sump Service and Installation in Naperville, IL
Had an issue with the sumps in the main pit, there are two pits, each with a main pump and a back up. The main pit receives continuous water after storms and winter melts that even neighbors have commented how often the sump runs. Gina reviewed the situation and provided options of what could be done to highly reduce the risk of my basement flooding. She was patient, detailed, professional, knowledgeable, and overall wanted to provide the correct solution. I very much appreciated her work and friendliness; she provided peace of mind. I have been a Perma Seal customer for almost ten years and all of my interactions have been professional including the folks who schedule the calls to those who do the field work.

We had 7 to 10 inches of water in our basement. Ken Porter arrived and he efficiently assessed the situation, explained the problem and quickly installed the needed pumps.

With employees like Ken, we never have to worry about our basement. I also want to commend both Marge from your service dept and the lady who first took my call on Easter Sunday. You have extremely capable people and we are so very pleased with your company. Thank you

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.
