ABOUT Perma Seal

Perma-Seal Basement Systems is a locally-owned, family-operated business that was started through humble beginnings in 1979. After answering an ad in the newspaper for a manager trainee, Roy was told to “manage this” by being handed a shovel. He rose to the challenge, and was promoted to production manager.

However, after working for several local waterproofing companies, he was unhappy with the “patch ‘em now, service ‘em later” business approach. He decided to branch off on his own and build his own company, alongside his red, pickup truck.

Our focus continued to be centered around our clients and providing a superior customer experience through honest, ethical, high quality work, completed by a business of integrity, and backed up by a solid warranty.

We became Perma-Seal Basement Systems, after joining Basement Systems, an international network of basement waterproofing companies. We also joined Foundation SupportWorks, which is our network of foundation repair solutions.

Since then, Perma-Seal has proudly served over 350,000 homeowners in the greater Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana areas. Nearly 40 years later, Perma-Seal continues to seek to improve efficiency, profitability, and our clients’ experience. As it stands today, the founder of our company Roy Spencer serves as President alongside his wife, Laura Ann Spencer, as the Executive Vice-President. They continue to lead their team, which is referred to as the Perma-Seal Tribe.
