About Ayers Basement Systems

Basement, Crawl Space, and Foundation Solutions Since 1981

Ayers Basement Systems is unique in the central and western Michigan area not only because of the foundation on which this company is built, but because we are the only waterproofing contractor licensed to install Basement Systems patented products and systems. These products we use, are the latest in modern design and are superior in workmanship and effectiveness because they're designed specifically for basements, crawl spaces and foundations.

History of Ayers Basement Systems

Ayers Basement Systems is an independently owned and operated company serving Central and Western Michigan area since 1981.

Wanting to build a company that stood out in the contracting industry, Virgil Ayers founded his company on principles like honesty, integrity and caring.

As members in good standing with the NAWSRC as well as the Lansing and Grand Rapids Home Builders Associations, we are enjoying the benefits these principles provide.

There are several companies, that do what we do, but no one does it with the quality, service, and professionalism associated with every job we do.

That's why we've helped over 25,000 of our neighbors dry out their basements, crawlspaces, and foundations. Allow us the opportunity to serve you and "experience the difference."

No matter what your concern, you can be confident that Ayers Basement Systems has the expertise to solve any basement or foundation problem you're having.
