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.
In a single day, a crew from Perma-Seal’s Hammond, IN location worked tirelessly to install a full interior drain tile system along with a sump pump. The crew could not have been happier to lend a helping hand to such a great cause. The Perma-Seal Community Foundation donated half of the necessary work to assure that this would become a healthier, happier home.
