This home's old sump pump failed and it was time for a replacement. The sump pump had always been a problem and this homeowner did not want to worry about the new pump during any condition. The TripleSafe has three pumps that activate depending on the amount collected and includes a battery backup in case of power outages.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

If there is water or moisture in your basement or crawl space, you will eventually have mold and rot (if you don't have it already). The good news is we can prevent mold and rot from developing with proper basement waterproofing and crawl space encapsulation. Ayers Basement Systems keeps you home dry and safe. Our work comes with a lifetime, transferable, dry-basement warranty.

Basement Waterproofing System in Traverse City

We can fix:

  • Wet Basements
  • Damp or Moldy Crawl Spaces
  • Leaking Wall Cracks
  • High Humidity in the Space
  • Uncomfortable Temperatures

Our Basement Waterproofing System

Ayers Basement Systems uses a proprietary, patented basement waterproofing system to keep you Traverse City home dry. We first install a hidden drainage channel along the inner perimeter of your basement. Any water entering the space is quickly collected into the drainage channel (before any damage can happen). The water is channeled to a hidden sump pump which pushes the water out of your home and away from the foundation. The entire system is 'invisible'. You don't see it working, you only see the results - a dry basement. The finishing touch is a specially designed, energy-efficient basement dehumidifier which removes excess water vapor. This prevents mold growth.

Crawl Space Encapsulation

We can also protect your crawl space using a similar waterproofing system. The entire crawl space is covered with a thick, vinyl vapor barrier which lays on top of a insulating matting placed on the floor. The crawl space vents are sealed off and a sump pump and dehumidifier are installed. The crawl space entrance has a sealable door installed. The completed system removes any entering water and keeps the relative humidity of the space low enough to prevent mold growth and rot. No wet crawl spaces. No mold or rot. No uncomfortable, cold floors over the crawl space. 

 

Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

Foundation issues can quickly destroy the value of your home if left unfixed. We have repaired and restored the foundations for hundreds of homes throughout Michigan including Traverse City. We have a number of different tools to ensure we have the right solution for the exact foundation problem your home is facing. 

Foundation Piers in Traverse City

We can fix:

  • foundation wall cracks
  • Separating floors
  • Soil issues
  • bowing walls
  • Sunken concrete slabs

Professional Foundation Repair

If your home's foundation is settling we can fix it using foundation piers. Depending on the underlying cause of the settlement we use push piers, helical piers, slab piers or helical deck piers. For bowing basement walls we can use wall anchors, wall stabilization systems or sprayed concrete. We even correct sagging floors over crawl space by installing support jacks. Whatever foundation problem you have, Ayers Basement Systems can fix it. 

Updated Mudjacking Techniques

Most of the Traverse City foundation contractors you speak with will recommend mudjacking for sunken concrete slabs. The problem is that they are using an antiquated version of the method. Mudjacking or slab jacking requires holes be drilled into the concrete slab. A thick mudclurry is pumped through the holes, underneath the slab where it cures. Rather than use a mudslurry, we use PolyLEVEL, an expansive, polyurethane foam. The foam is injected through much smaller holes, expands to fill any gaps beneath the slab and cures in hours instead of days. The foam is also much lighter than mudslurry and puts less stress on underlying soils. Give us a call to gets started with a free home inspection and no-obligation estimate.

Job Stories From Traverse City, MI
SmartSump Helps with a Traverse City, MI Sale

Leslie was getting ready to sell her home when she noticed a large amount of standing water in the crawl space. There were about 4 inches of water in the crawl space, and it wasn’t helping with the sale. Luckily, there was no mold, mildew, or rotten wood from the moisture. But without a sump pump system in the crawl space, the water wasn’t going anywhere, either. Leslie needed a solution that would get the water out and soon.

Since Leslie was planning on selling the home anyway, she asked the crew for a system that would handle the problem as efficiently as possible. The crew put in a perimeter drain and covered it with stones to allow for easy drainage. Then they gave Leslie what she had been lacking for a long time, a sump pump. The SmartSump is the perfect sump pump system for a crawl space. It's capable of pushing out 2,000 gallons of water in an hour, meaning this crawl space will be dry for whoever owns the home. That water will then be lead to a lawnscape outlet in the backyard. Good Luck with the rest of the sale, Leslie!

Geo-Lock Anchors Help a Traverse City, MI Sale

Don and Yvonne of Traverse City, MI had plans to sell their home within the next year. They were all set to move forward with the process, but they weren’t sure what role their out building - and more importantly the bowing walls inside of it - would play. Don and Yvonne noticed the problem after seeing multiple cracks in the building. They saw large stair step cracks, which is typically reason enough to suspect a bowing foundation, but the cracks in cement foundation on the outside also helped to convince them. The building was built into the side of a hill 30 years ago. When our system design specialist came out, he discovered that the walls had bowed about 6 full inches inwards since then. Foundations bow when the soil adjacent to them begin to expand and push against the walls. In this case, it was the soil in the hill that the building was built in. The crew wanted to do their best to guarantee that those walls wouldn’t crumble or affect the sale of the home. So, they used one of our most effective solutions against bowing walls – GeoLock Wall Anchors.

The Geo-Lock Anchor system works by attaching wall plates inside the building to Earth anchors in dependable soil. Using steel rods as tie backs, the system will halt the inward motion of the walls. The hill had taken quite a toll on Dave and Yvonne’s building, so much so that the crew had to use 10 different wall plates and anchors. Even though it was a tall order, the Geo-Lock System was able to put a stop to the bowing, and in time, may even return the walls to their original position.

Good Luck with the sale Don and Yvonne! 

Wet Basement Repair for a Traverse City, MI Home

Joan had water leaking into her home. Ayers Basement Systems was able to help waterproof her basement.

First, Ayers safely excavated all the water in her home. Then, a SuperSump pump system with cast iron pump, liner, airtight lid was installed along with an airtight floor drain. After that, a WaterWatch alarm system was prepared along with IceGuard to prevent floods from a frozen discharge line. At the end of the discharge line, a LawnScape outlet was placed to allow water to safely drain outside. Lastly, Ayers installed a WaterGuard inspection port for access to the system and a sub-floor drainage system.

Altogether, Joan was provided with a full waterproof system that would function efficiently and keep her basement dry.

Traverse City, MI Crawl Space Upgrade

Mike S. had a crawl space that needed some help in order to stay completely dry. After doing some searching on the internet Mike found Ayers Basement Systems. 

Mike called and our office staff immediately set him up with Nino Lira to complete the job. In order to get the job started, drainage matting is put down to channel the water out. On top of that is the CleanSpace Crawl Space Vapor Barrier. The CleanSpace protects from mold and rot, and never supports mildew. Mike made sure he wanted his crawl space totally dry and added the SaniDry dehumidifierThis energy efficient system can remove up to 109 pints of water per day while using a powerful fan that keeps dry air circulating all over the space. 

Mike was very satisfied with the work Ayers Basement Systems did. His crawl space is guaranteed to be totally dry for years to come!
