Promoting Green Solutions

The nonprofit Center for Neighborhood Technology (CNT) is a Chicago-based think-and-do tank that researches, pilots, and advocates solutions for property owners in towns and cities across the Chicago region that are paying millions of dollars to tackle basement and backyard flooding problems. CNT’s Wetrofit service offers fast track solutions for budget-strapped communities aimed at alleviating this flooding, revitalizing neighborhoods and generating jobs. 

CNT has established one of the largest family residential green retrofit programs in the nation and has already been piloted in several communities in the Chicagoland area.

Even Dry Basements Require Inspection

Even Dry Basements Require Inspection

At the beginning of every year, we like to hang up a brand new, empty calendar and start filling in those important dates to remember for the upcoming year. We always start with the fun and exciting dates, like anniversaries, birthdays and vacations. However, we also have to remember our yearly appointments to go to the dentist, get the furnace and air conditioning looked at, the fluids in our cars changed, and even your annual physical with your doctor.

While you are writing down all of the necessary things to be checked annually, do not forget about an important part of your home, your basement. A dry, healthy basement is a very valuable asset and is even more vital when you’re basement is finished. The small cost of maintaining your downstairs is nothing compared to the hassle and heartache of cleaning up after it has been flooded with a couple inches of water from a heavy rainstorm.

Perma-Seal Products to be featured on the Today Show

Perma-Seal Products to be featured on the Today Show

Lots of things around your home require a back-up. For those with a basement, a sump pump is a must and a back-up for that unit is a necessity. Think about all you have down there and then about how most insurance companies either cap the amount they will cover or no longer offer flood insurance. The mistake that most people make is not matching up the backup pumps capacity to the main pump. If your primary pump moves 3,000 gallons of water and hour your backup unit needs to do the same. Another consideration is inspecting these systems on a yearly basis. Standard batteries need to be filled with water yearly, sealed batteries cost more but need no maintenance for 5 years. A good back-up system installed will cost around $2,500.00 but it is worth it. Call Perma-Seal at 800-421-7325 to schedule a FREE evaluation of your sump pump system.

Perma-Seal Introduces Active Moisture Management System (AMMS)

For over 30 years Perma-Seal has been the leader in keeping homeowners’ basement walls and floors dry, now we’re excited to introduce a whole NEW LEVEL OF DRYNESS: the Active Moisture Management System.

Concrete walls and floors, once sealed and installed with an appropriate drainage system, are an effective barrier against seepage even during the heaviest of downpours. Moisture vapor however can still penetrate even the best concrete and cause excess humidity in a basement or crawl space. High humidity levels lead to mold, mildew, mustiness, and odors.
