Your home is supposed to be your escape, a place where you can rest, relax, and entertain. Jim wants to make sure your home is comfortable, safe, and dry so you can do just that.
Jim completed extensive training to design solutions for your waterproofing, foundation, and crawl space repair needs. This includes earning the Certified Waterproofing Professional designation through the Basement Systems International Network of Waterproofing Contractors.
Bringing a comprehensive, personalized approach to every job, Jim will give you a custom solution based on your goals and exactly what’s going on in your home. His customers regularly recommend him and the Ayers Team to their family and friends.
Jim graduated from Western Michigan University and has worked the last 20 years in all facets of staffing and recruiting. During that time, he bought, rehabbed, and sold several rental homes, becoming more knowledgeable about the ins and outs of home construction all along the way. These experiences have well-prepared him to diagnose and design a comprehensive solution for your basement or crawl space needs.
Jim was asked what he hoped to get out of his meetings with customers. He shared, “My Goal is to exceed customer’s expectations by offering the best possible solution for their basement or crawl space issue and to leave a ‘wow’ experience upon completion of the job.”
Born in Houston, Texas and raised in Goshen, Indiana, Jim now resides in Middlebury, Indiana. He is passionate about health and nutrition and enjoys working out. He spends much of his time outdoors whether that be on the beach, boating, fishing for Walleye on Lake Erie, or vacationing. He’s a huge animal lover and has contributed to many animal rescue organizations.
Jim is looking forward to meeting you.
This family called us because they had water occasionally coming in their crawl space which was causing mold to grow and they had a dirt floor allowing critters and outside air in. We all know mold is not something that should be taken lightly as it can cause health issues and can tremendously affect the resale value of your home. We don't put dirt floors in basements so why does having a dirt floor in your crawl space sound okay? We sent a system design specialist out to the home to see what could be done and offer the best solution to the problem.
The homeowner and system design specialist agreed that installing our CleanSpace system would be the best answer. CleanSpace ensures that the crawl space will be isolated from the earth so no critters, air or ground water can evaporate into the atmosphere of the space. It's also made of a very thick plastic so there is no worrying about it tearing or not holding up. The liner is also made with an antimicrobial additive that prevents the growth of mold.
Our customer just had something that is never fun...flooding. Failure of his sump pump allowed water to come in through the walls, ruining the recently furnished basement. Traditional sump pumps with only single or even double pumps have lots of issues when failure occurs. Ayers recommended our customer to the TripleSafe. The TripleSafe uses one energy efficient pump for most of the easy lifting, as well as a heavier duty pump to help out during heavy raining. Even in the event of a power outage, the third battery powered pump will allow for ease of mind as water is kept out of your home and your family stays safe! The TripleSafe is our most recommended sump pump system as it has kept homes dry and safe even in the worst conditions.
