Contractors Avoid Explosive Complaints with Low Pressure Crack Injections | 800-421-7325 | Perma-Seal Basement Systems

If there was problem in the basement, you now have the air quality problem in your living space," says Roy Spencer, owner of Perma-Seal Basement Systems in Downers Grove, IL. Wall cracks leaking behind finished walls may not be detectable, but nonetheless, may be creating an atmosphere for mold mold support (a humid basement exceeding 50% relative humidity).
...
Spencer says that high-pressure injection is too forceful for effective residential basement repairs.
...
Spencer says that that only time contractors do not seal a slab is when water is already flooding the basement through the floor cracks. Such a problem suggests the need for a sub-foundation draining system.
About 95 percent of basement cracks are not a structural threat to the foundation, basement walls or floor. Most wall cracks only post a water seepage problem, but you have to fix them because the crack is still capable of leaking and affecting the air quality in the home. "If the leak is trapped inside of a finished wall or floor, it may do a lot of damage before it is discovered," says Spencer.

Perma-Seal was founded in 1979 by Roy Spencer. After working for two other large waterproofing companies, he was dissatisfied with the low ethical standards and the "patch now and service 'em later" repairs that were commonplace in the industry. It was then that he decided to build a company that could provide permanent repairs and stand behind that work with integrity.

Perma-Seal has won service awards for the last 9 years, and Roy Spencer was selected in 2005 as the Ernst and Young Illinois Entrepreneur of the Year in the Consumer Product's category. Roy was also featured as the waterproofing expert on Pam Zechman's CBS news exposé.

Roy Spencer, chairman of the BBB board of directors, called that time "a tremendous period of transition."
"Steve handled it with such aplomb," said Spencer, who is also president of Perma-Seal Basement Systems Inc. in Downers Grove.
...
Yet the disparity in management styles between Bernas and his predecessor was stark, Spencer noted.
...
"The difference has been night and day, and to the benefit of the bureau, which has really blossomed under Steve," Spencer said.
...
"He kept challenging us, saying, 'I really think this is important,'" said Spencer, then an executive board member and now board president.
...
"After hearing his passion, we said, 'We're going to back you on this,'" Spencer said.
In hindsight, it was the right call.
The national BBB began proceedings to revoke the Chicago chapter's charter, but before that could happen it agreed to change the grading formula nationwide, removing the extra points for being a BBB member.
"Steve's had numerous opportunities to compromise on ethics, principles - I'm sure he gets them daily - and I've never seen him fail," Spencer said.
