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.

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.

Foundation Repair in Lake Forest, IL

Had my foundation repaired – I just had my foundation repaired by them. They worked very quickly for the middle of winter and I was very impressed by the way they worked and surprised me by the outcome.

Foundation Repair in Downers Grove, IL

Always had great service! – I had a great experience with Perma-Seal,both times that I used them. They repaired a leak in the basement of my previous home 17 years ago, and they did work in my current home in the fall of 2009, and I have never had water in my basement after their repairs. The estimators are always very thorough and make sure that I understand the process and cost involved, and the crew always delivers. Highly recommended!

Foundation Repair in Lake Forest, IL

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

Sump Pump Installation in Downers Grove, IL

Perma-Seal didn't take any shortcuts when it came to water proofing my basement. They installed a complete drain system, sump pump and sealed all the cracks that were causing water seepage. All I can say is it's been almost 6 months and not a leak yet.

Foundation Repair in Elmhurst, IL

We have used them a few times for foundation crack repair. They were very quick and did the job well. When we used them a few years ago, they also had a warranty if any sealed cracks should leak again. They come out and repair again, at no cost.

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.

Foundation Repair in La Grange, IL

Excellent quality and service, you get what you pay for! I had Perma-Seal out in March 2013 to repair 5 cracks in my foundation and replace both sump pumps before the big flood of April 2013. The salesman was smart and courteous, he showed me exactly how they would make the repairs and exactly how much it would cost. I did get two other estimates on the repairs before I went with Perma-Seal, one estimate was higher and one estimate was lower. I called the Perma-Seal salesman back and he scheduled the repairs for me. The repair crew was on time and spent several hours making the repairs in my basement. They left my basement cleaner than it was! I made it through the big flood of April 2013 without a drop of water in my basement. Perma-Seal was absolutely worth the investment!

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.

Foundation Repair in La Grange Park, IL

One wall of our garage was sinking. Perma-seal diagnosed the problem and suggested a solution. They poured piers to support the sinking wall. It was not cheap, but I believe the solution was the correct one. The Perma-Seal team was professional and courteous. They arrived on time and worked efficiently. They cleaned up well after themselves. Our village inspector was pleased with the work and told me that he never expects to see a problem on a Perma-Seal job.

Foundation Repair in Wheaton, IL

These two employees (James A. and Bill H) are great examples “role models“ of what client services should be, I know you advertise this but it is VERY TRUE! Both of them took time to not only answer my questions or listen to my concerns but would stop doing work to look at me while answering my numerous questions. There are many people who come in, do service and seem very eager to get in out, this was not the case with your company. Thank you very much for having such great service and these two members should definitely be praised for their work!
