A basement flood is just about the worst thing that can happen to a homeowner who has valuable items stored in their basement. In order to prevent this from happening, a homeowner in Climax, MI gave us a call. At our professional and free inspection we recommended our patented TripleSafe sump pump to ensure that water will never see daylight in this basement. The TripleSafe pump provides three levels of protection against water leakage. Average water supply, heavy volumes of water, and pumping water in a power outage are all covered by this amazing sump pump. Stop stressing about your valuables becoming ruined or water damaged, and get the TripleSafe sump pump installed like this Climax, MI resident did.
The LawnScape outlet is an underground extension that enables downspout water to escape. The outlet can also be used for discharge lines on sump pumps. This family in Climax, MI had the LawnScape installed and it didn't even leave a sore spot on their lawn. A few decorative stones and the LawnScape outlet becomes an accessory that functions to help keep your home ( and more specifically, your basement) clean and dry.
Dan had us out in the past to give some sinking concrete a polylevel treatment, using high-density polymers injected underneath the concrete to fill voids and lift the concrete back into its original position. With a significant amount of new slabs needing to be addressed, this time we ended up removing the concrete completely and pouring a new walkway. The results are a far cry from what was there before. The walkway will be much safer to walk on and water will flow safely away from the home.
Nasty crawl spaces are our specialty -- that's why this family in Alger, MI gave us a call. After a professional and free inspection, we determined that this crawl space could be salvaged if we installed our patented CleanSpace encapsulation system. CleanSpace entirely seals off crawl spaces from the earth, disallowing the entry of moisture or cold air. CleanSpace is also made with an anti-microbial component, preventing any mold growth to occur. This family has the opportunity to use their crawl space for storage without worrying about water affecting their valuables.
Foundation wall cracks are nothing to take lightly. That's why this family in Culver, IN called us. Their foundation walls were showing "staircase" cracks, indicating bowing or buckling walls. We determined that our patented PowerBrace system was perfect to fix this. PowerBrace is made of steel I-beams that are connected to the joists above the foundation wall to offer maximum support. After the installment of PowerBrace, this family can now feel safe in their basement and, more importantly, their home.

A customer from South Bend called us about her wet and gross crawl space. We gave her a free estimate and decided to install CleanSpace technology. CleanSpace is a 20 mil thick plastic liner that fits to the crawl space to completely seal the home from the earth. Polyester cord reinforcement allows for a lot of durability, to make it last longer than the home will. This liner also contains an antimicrobial additive to prevent mold. This liner was combined with CleanSpace vent covers to insulate and seal the air out. Now this crawl space will be clean and dry forever.
One of our customers called us about their crawlspace which was dirty and damp. They didn't know how to fix it so they wanted our professional help. We gave them a free estimate and decided to install a combination of some of our fantastic products. We installed our SmartJack system which helps reinforce the floors above it so that they will never sag. The SmartJack is a support system used to stabilize and level the floor joists in a crawl space. This system can support up to 60,000 pounds. The SmartJack system is placed on strong concrete fillings that have replaced the soil in that small location underneath the SmartJack.
We also installed some Clean Space which is the perfect mold fighting technology that also improves the look of any crawlspace.

Polyester cord reinforcement allows for a lot of durability, to make it last longer than the home will. This liner also contains an antimicrobial additive to prevent mold. This liner was also combined with CleanSpace vent covers to insulate and seal the air out, so that the crawlspace is not affected by the outside environment. This will save the homeowner a lot of money on air conditioning and heating costs.

The homeowners in Saint Joseph, MI were starting to notice water seeping into their basement. They had no sump pump so the water that was seeping in could not be removed out of the home.
The homeowners called Ayers Basement Systems and we had the perfect solution! Our professional team installed the SuperSump sump pump. The SuperSump is a full-featured system that includes the best features available. It includes the SuperLiner, which is an airtight lid that looks more attractive, keeps pests out and eliminates safety hazards of an open sump pump. It has a floor drain in case an unforeseen accident puts water on your basement floor. It includes a WaterWatch Alarm, which alerts you if the water level rises above the sump pump intake. It has a cast-iron pump to prevent overheating and burnout. It has a CleanPump pump stand that elevates the sump pump to prevent clogging. It has a check valve to prevent pumped water from re-entering. Lastly, it has an improved float valve to ensure long-term performance.
The SuperSump sump pump saved the homeowners from having to deal with even worse water problems in the future!
The homeowners had a vertical stairstep crack going down one of their walls in the basement. As the wall bows more in the middle, the corners are held up by adjacent walls, creating the stair step cracking effect. This kind of crack is a typical sign that your wall is bowing, the problem is getting worse, and something needs to be done to fix it.
Our professional team knew that installing wall anchors were the best option for this wall. The wall anchors are installed by digging a small hole in the soil a few feet away from your foundation. A steel rod is drilled through a hole in your basement wall and is connected to the earth anchor that is seated deep in the hole. A low-profile wall plate, placed on the interior of your basement wall, is secured to the rod. The hole is then filled back up and sod is replaced. Once all the components of the wall anchor system are connected and tightened, your basement wall is permanently stabilized. The wall anchor system is a great product for fixing bowing and cracked walls because it allows for improvement and straightening of your wall over time!
The homeowner's wall is now well on its way to full repair!

FrothPark filled in the gaps and works to keep this Holland, MI basement insulated!
This Kewadin, MI crawl space was riddled with moisture and mold. A surefire way to remedy the moisture problem in this crawl space was to install our durable CleanSpace material on the walls and ground to act as a vapor barrier. Dimple matting between the ground and CleanSpace material facilitated water flow to a new UltraSump system. This sump pump system safely removed any moisture from the crawl space. It was equipped with a battery-backup system so that it would continue to protect the space even during a power outage. A SaniDry CX dehumidifier protects the crawl space from any harmful water vapor in the air and helps keep building materials dry so that mold does not grow once again. Mold remediation using our Mold-X treatment created a safer environment below the home so that the air rising into the spaces above would be clean and breathable. This crawl space is now dramatically improved and much safer and dryer.
