Old Sump Pump in Grass Lake

Lucas from Grass Lake, MI was having water issues in his basement. His sump pump had been running full time the entire fall, and water was beginning to seep through the floor around where the sump pump was. In order to stop water from seeping in and preventing further damage, we decided to install our TripeSafe Sump Pump.

TripleSafe has three sump pumps that all fit into one liner. This is important because three pumps won’t become overwhelmed with higher pumping demands like a single pump would. Also, if the power goes out in your home, the third pump serves as a battery-operated backup, meaning that it will take care of any business that needs to be handled until the power comes back on. Lucas' old sump pump simply couldn't handle all of the water that was coming in, but with TripleSafe, no amount of water is ever too much for this beast.

In terms of waterproofing your basement, there simply isn't a superior option to our TripleSafe Sump Pump.

Supporting Floors and Encapsulating a Crawl Space

This Grass Lake home had a musty smell coming from the crawl space and the owner has respiratory issues making her worry that there was mold in her home. When we had our initial inspection, we found that the main beam in the crawl space was rotted and broken. To support the floors, we installed a supplemental beam and SmartJacks. We then installed the CleanSpace Liner to encapsulate the crawl space and keep it clean. Lastly, we used the SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to keep the space dry and to filter mold spores and other particles. 

 

 

Saving a 1900 Osseo Home

Angela just bought a home that was built in 1900 that had some obvious damage. She called Ayers for an inspection after another company told her to tear her entire home down. We immediately saw that the living room floors were caving in, the floorboards were coming apart, and water was flooding the basement. We installed SmartJacks, TripleSafe sump pump, CleanSpace Wall System, and SaniDry dehumidifier. SmartJacks are steel supports to balance the foundation of your crawlspace, lifting it to its original position. They can also be adjusted so your home will never shift out of place. The combination of our TripleSafe sump pump, CleanSpace Wall System, and SaniDry dehumidifier will keep your basement dry for years to come. The TripleSafe sump pump utilizes three pumps in order to remove excess water from your basement. The second and third pumps are in case of emergencies so your basement can remain dry, even when the power goes out. CleanSpace Wall System uses a thick plastic liner along basement walls that directs access water toward the sump pump. The SaniDry dehumidifier automatically removes up to 100 pints of water a day from the air in your basement. This system circulates the now dry air through your basement and automatically removes the leftover water so you dont have to. Angela didn't have to demolish her home and can remain safe and dry for years to come. 

Supporting a Bowed Wall in Clarklake MI

These Clarklake homeowners have had a crack in the basement walls since the home was built and the soil was backfilled. It has bothered them ever since but now they thing the crack is slowly getting worse and wanted a solution. We used GeoLock Wall Anchors to halt further movement of the walls. There is minimal disruption to the yard and the anchors do not take up usable space in the basement!

 

30 Years of Bowing to Standing Tall in Clarklake, MI

William’s wall withstood 30 years of bowing and finally started cracking pretty significantly. There were no signs of intruding water yet however it was sure to follow after the crack got deeper and wider. William called our team and we came out and installed GeoLock Wall Anchors. The Geo-Lock Wall Anchor System repairs walls that are sliding inwards, bowing, or buckling. A wall anchor will be installed inside your home and extend outward towards stable, hard-packed soil around your home to anchor it in place. This prevents any further movement permanently and is installed with minimal disruption to your home or your lawn. We can even conceal the anchors with our Hide-A-Way covers for a more finished appearance. Now William's wall will return to standing tall and strong like the day he built the house and intruding water won't be a concern.
