Waterproofing in Villa Park, IL

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.

Waterproofing in Oak Park, IL

These guys are great. They fixed my leaking basement and missed a spot. They came back and repaired it for no charge.

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.

Sump Pump Replacement in Schaumburg, 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!

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 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.

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 not cost.

Sump Pump in Schaumburg, IL

Permaseal 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.

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 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!

Sump Pump in La Grange, IL

Perma-Seal installed an interior drain tile and sump pump with battery back up.  They were very professional, quick and easy to work with.  Everything has worked well for years now.  I would definitely recommend them to others.

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!!!

Foundation Repair in Naperville, IL

We own a home built in 1928 and had noticed wall cracks in one corner area of the house which kept reappearing.  Having experience in residential housing, I decided that we had settling issues in on corner of our house.  I knew of Permaseal from listening to Lou Manfredini and thought I would give them a call to have a look at what was going on.  The sales rep agreed with my diagnosis and we scheduled the work.  The price quote was fixed and was right in alignment with what I anticipated.  The workers showed up as planned and were very knowledgeable about foundations.  In the process, we found that the foundation had been poured without footings! (I guess that's how they did things in those days?)  That was not a problem for the push-post pinning system that Permaseal uses.  They proceeded to install the underpinnings, patch the concrete cuts, and clean up.  Would I use them again?  Absolutely!  In particular, if we have other foundation issues, they will be my first call.

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.

Foundation Repair in St. Charles, IL

Everything was great!!  Very Professional.  Price was MUCH less than I expected it to be for the foundation repair job.  Would very highly recommend.

Crawl Space in Highland Park, IL
Perma-Seal did a crawl space encapsulation on Michael's home located in Highland Park, IL. We received a 5 stars for each aspect of the work completed. Along with a perfect 5 star rating Michael wrote, "I like the work that Perma-Seal did on my craw space."

I am delighted with the work and the results. I was sorry my house foundation needed the work, but the workers and the work they did is outstanding!
