Basement Defender History

The Basement Defender™ Story

The Basement Defender™ was invented by Chicago native Roy Spencer, a successful entrepreneur. Roy is the founder of the leading basement and foundation repair company, Perma-Seal Basement Systems, in Chicago.

Roy developed the Basement Defender™ device because of homeowners’ frustration that their sump pump can and will fail without warning. There needed to be a more proactive approach. Therefore, Basement Defender™ notifies homeowners of sump pump issues before a disaster hits and takes that constant worry away.
