April Storms Could Mean Wet Basements for Chicago Homeowners - Prepare Your Home Today!

Perma-Seal was recently featured in an online news article from The Bugle. This week marks the 1 year anniversary of the wild and wet weather that rolled through town last spring. Many homeowners were shocked to find that their basement had flooded, or that they had huge puddles of water on the floor. Over a 2 day period, between 5-10 inches of rain fell in northern Illinois and Indiana. As a result of these torrential rains, a lot of homeowners were asking what they can do to prevent this problem in the future, and what can be done to help with the damages.
