Longtime Downers Grove business reflects on flood damage, reopening
April floods, ailing stormwater system made Perma-Seal a victim
DOWNERS GROVE – Few will ever forget the flood that rocked many Downers Grove homes and businesses the morning of April 18, mainly because so many are still recovering.
One of those businesses is Perma-Seal, a company that specializes in basement waterproofing and foundation repair and has been in town for about 20 years.
The Perma-Seal building, 513 Rogers St., needed "a complete overhaul," including replacing dry wall and inventory, computers and phone lines, and buying new furniture and computers, according to Marketing Manager Kerry Morgan.
