Perma-Seal Basement Systems, Inc.

Back in 1979, Roy Spencer began with a simple and direct mission: to provide homeowners with permanent repairs at the greatest value and stand behind his work. For him that meant doing business with integrity because integrity was his greatest commodity. He decided to build an ethical company, dedicated to the idea of providing affordable, permanent repairs to homeowners struggling with wet basements.

Today, Perma-Seal has grown to become Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana’s leader in creating dry basements, crawl spaces, stable foundations and healthy homes, compelling the entire industry to upgrade their methods and practices. Our focus continues center around our internal and external customers while providing a superior customer experience through honest, ethical, high quality work, completed by a business of integrity, and backed up by a solid warranty.

Perma-Seal is a Conscious Capitalism partner. More on Perma-Seal’s Conscious Capitalism commitment:

We believe that business is good because it creates value, it is ethical because it is based on voluntary exchange, it is noble because it can elevate our existence, and it is heroic because it lifts people out of poverty and creates prosperity. Free enterprise capitalism is the most powerful system for social cooperation and human progress ever conceived. It is one of the most compelling ideas we humans have ever had. But we can aspire to even more.

Conscious Capitalism is a way of thinking about capitalism and business that better reflects where we are in the human journey, the state of our world today, and the innate potential of business to make a positive impact on the world. Conscious businesses are galvanized by higher purposes that serve, align, and integrate the interests of all their major stakeholders. Their higher state of consciousness makes visible to them the interdependencies that exist across all stakeholders, allowing them to discover and harvest synergies from situations that otherwise seem replete with trade-offs. They have conscious leaders who are driven by service to the company’s purpose, all the people the business touches, and the planet we all share together. Conscious businesses have trusting, authentic, innovative and caring cultures that make working there a source of both personal growth and professional fulfillment. They endeavor to create financial, intellectual, social, cultural, emotional, spiritual, physical and ecological wealth for all their stakeholders.

Conscious businesses will help evolve our world so that billions of people can flourish, leading lives infused with passion, purpose, love and creativity; a world of freedom, harmony, prosperity, and compassion.
