Helping Out Habitat for Humanity

We did a little Spring-cleaning at our Downers Grove warehouse. We found items we no longer use, including window and area wells, glass block windows, and flooring supplies. Instead of throwing it away like yesterday’s trash, we reached out to ReStore Fox Valley Habitat for Humanity to see if they could make use of the materials.

They graciously accepted our donation! Some of Perma-Seal’s Tribal Members weathered the wind that afternoon, and helped load the Habitat for Humanity trucks. This exemplifies our Core Value: “We are compassionate and give back to our Community.”

Perma-Seal Donation Provides Storage Solution for DuPagePads

Last June, Perma-Seal began a basement waterproofing project at DuPagePads' Employment and Education building at 705 West Liberty in Wheaton, IL. The project was completed by September 2014. It was a big job which involved sealing off the basement area so that it wouldn't allow seepage inside. The basement of the building is used to store diapers, hygiene products, pads for sleeping, clothing, and more - all items which must be kept dry so that participants in their program can live healthy, safe lives.

DuPagePads' mission is to end homelessness in DuPage County. They provide interim (overnight) housing and permanent supportive housing plans.

Perma-Seal Lends a Helping Hand to a Homeowner in Need

Perma-Seal was honored to assist with a recent home rehabilitation project run by Habitat For Humanity in Lansing, IL in order to provide a family in need with a decent, affordable home. Habitat for Humanity Chicago South Suburbs (HHCSS), in partnership with the Cook County Bureau of Economic Development, is taking part in a federal program to help alleviate the dilemma of foreclosed homes in the community. The program allows Habitat to purchase foreclosed properties and transform them into warm, safe, energy efficient homes. The homes can then be sold to qualified, low-income families who meet certain guidelines. Taking part in worthy projects such as these is an ongoing part of fulfilling Perma-Seal’s mission to help make the world a better place and to help homeowners improve the quality of their homes.

This particular project was very unique as the home was nearing foreclosure and was in need of repairs. A wet basement was among the multitude of repairs needed to improve the living conditions of the home. The homeowner had previously experienced seepage and flooding, and did not have a sump pump to help control the water around the house. This was going to be quite a task to repair, so Habitat For Humanity turned to the experts at Perma-Seal for help.

Lending A Helping Hand

Earlier in 2011, Perma-Seal and several other contractors and companies took part in a home adaptive renovation project in Oak Lawn, Illinois, (sponsored by Salute, Inc) to honor an injured Marine Yuriy and his wife Aimee.

Yuriy is a young Marine veteran who served two terms in Iraq and Afghanistan and is the recipient of many awards, combat action ribbons and medals. Upon returning home and making plans to be married, he had an appendix attack. He was sent to a military hospital for a routine appendectomy where complications during surgery led to him in a coma for two and a half months. He is now suffering with an Anoxic brain injury, which has left him unable to speak, visually impaired, unable to walk and has spasticity in both hands. As soon as Yuriy came out of the coma Aimee decided to marry him and care for him.
