    The outlet pipe from the sump to the outside us a long run, my plumber noticed there were no hangers on the pipe and added some at no charge. You might want to stock hangers on the truck for situations like this to prevent the pipe from giving way at some point in the future.

    Customer Testimonial

              We hope you know what a marvelous crew Dan, Sheldon and Casey are. We put our home in their hands for five days. They took care to return it to us in marvelous shape and with a wonderful clean space installation. They all went out of their way to make sure we were informed all though the work and gave us a full explanation and tour of the finished product. We could not be more pleased with their work. They even cleaned up after themselves. They left our home in the same condition we would have ourselves. Their attitudes were consistently upbeat and positive throughout the week. They dealt with any issues by coming up with innovative and well thought out solutions. The weather was changeable and terrible during the week, but none of them allowed that to stop their excellent progress and marvelous finished product. Again, we are hopeful that you know what an excellent crew these three men are. We are glad you sent them to do our work. We are pleased that we received just what we were told by Dennis James. Our experience overall with your company has been excellent. Thank you.

    Bowing Basement Wall in Elsie, Mi

    This homeowner called us because over time their basement wall had began to bow inward. This was a slow process and has horizontal cracks around the bowing. They weren't experiencing any water issues...yet. We assured them it was best to get it fixed before they did have a foot of water in the basement or before the foundation failed. 

    After a careful inspection and talking to the homeowners we both decided the best solution to the problem would be to install our Carbon Fiber straps. Carbon fiber is made of a very high tensile strength that is impossible to stretch. This makes it easy to adhere the carbon fiber to the bowing wall. This makes the wall stay where it's at without getting any worse over more time.

    SmartJacks are steel support systems used to stabilize and level the girders and floor joists. The heavy duty system has been laboratory tested to support loads of more than 60,000 pounds (that's a lot of weight). Being able to support that much weight makes SmartJacks a great option to stablize sagging floors and any walls and belongings on top of that floor. 

    This customer contacted us because she was having some remodeling work done and the contractor doing the work was concerned about the sagging floors and foundation because there were cracks in the ceiling and walls. She was also planning to move within the year so we were able to restore her properties value with these heavy duty SmartJacks.

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.

    Unlevel Concrete Porch in Granger, IN

    An uneven porch or driveway is never good: it causes a tripping hazard, doesn't look the best and can reduce the resale value of your home. We have come up with a new solution that uses modern technology to fix your uneven slabs. You start by drilling small holes in the concrete, smaller than a penny, and then structural grade polymers are injected into the void. The material injected is very lightweight and the best part is that it cures in 15 minutes. That means it can be drove on, walked on etc. almost right away after the work is completed. The material is also waterproof so there is no need to worry about it being washed out beneath the slab in the future.

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.

    The homeowners had water coming into their home through one of their walls. At one point they had 3 or 4 inches of water pooling into their basement and damaging everything in the area. They knew something needed to be done so they called Ayers Basement Systems. 

    Our professional team installed the WaterGuard long lasting interior perimeter drainage system. WaterGuard sits on the top of the footing in the basement in order to prevent clogging from mud or other debris. The system works by capturing floor and wall seepage before it has a chance to damage anything in the basement. Once the water is trapped in the drain it is taken immediately to the sump pump. The sump pump then removes the water from your home!

    Our professional team installed our CleanSpace encapsulation system to combat the mold and moisture. The system covers the floor and walls of your crawl space with a thick, durable, plastic vapor barrier. This vapor barrier isolates your moisture filled crawl space from your home, prevents mold growth and keeps unwanted pests out.

    The homeowners in Hudsonville, MI had water coming into their crawl space. The water was putting way to much moisture in the area and was causing mold to grow. Having a lot of moisture in your crawl space increases your energy bills, is more inviting to unwanted pests, and facilitates mold growth. 

    To combat this moisture our professional team installed our SmartSump sump pump. The SmartSump is specifically designed for crawl spaces to help reduce moisture, remove water and prevent flooding. The SmartSump has a unique sump pump cover design, so water from a plumbing leak fills an alarm pocket on the lid first, sounding a WaterWatch alarm that will let you know there is a plumbing leak. From there, the water flows down a special airtight floor drain that will let the water down, but damp air cannot come up into your crawl space. The WaterWatch sump pump alarm also alerts you to pump failure for any reason, including power outages. 

    Thanks to the SmartSump the homeowners crawl space is now clean and dry!

Another great thing about the CleanSpace material is that it brightens up a crawl space immensely. No more dark and creepy crawl space.

    Vents in your crawl space can actually do more harm than good. This customer noticed that her crawl space was always damp. While the vents alone didn't fix the problem it did help. We also installed our CleanSpace system to ensure that this crawl space was going to be dry for years to come. 

    The vents in your crawl space allow hot air  to come in in the summer, cold air in the winter, water when it rains and sometimes those unwanted critters find their way in through the vents as well. When this moisture gets in it can cause mold, wood rot and other unwanted problems in your crawl space. The vent covers we offer permanently seal off your crawl space from the outside. The panels come in black, gray or red brick to match your foundation.
