Virgil Ayers from Ayers Basement Systems

Some people dream about vacations or retirement – but not Virgil. He dreams about the smiling faces of satisfied customers. And there are a lot of them! Virgil has personally worked in thousands of basements and crawl spaces, and Ayers Basement Systems has helped more than 25,000 Michigan homeowners.

Virgil founded his company in 1981 and, based on his experience working for a concrete forms manufacturer, he decided to specialize in concrete restoration and waterproofing. The company joined the Basement Systems International Network of Waterproofing Contractors in 2006.

Virgil is a licensed contractor with significant expertise in basement waterproofing and foundation structural repairs. He also is a long-time member of the National Association of Waterproofing and Structural Repair Contractors.

In addition to rescuing customers from distressing issues in their homes, Virgil takes an active role in the training and supervision of Ayers’ sales, service and production staff. “I make sure that each of our employees is knowledgeable about the installation process as well as focused on WOW customer service. Every individual on our crews is someone I would be comfortable with doing work for my mother,” he says. 

A long-time resident of Grand Ledge, Michigan, Virgil is active in the Greater Lansing, Michigan community. He enjoys traveling, sailing, scuba diving and camping.

    The products you use and Mr. Virgil Ayers. We received several proposals for our project. Ayers Systems was not the lowest bid. It was Mr. Ayers' professionalism, knowledge of product and procedures. Along with his eagerness to be helpful is why you were awarded the contract. Thank you!
