“So much of our lives take place in our homes,” shared Gus. “When I think of the memories my kids will have of this place, I want them to be good memories; not memories of wet basements or musty smells.” Gus wants the same for each and every one of the people he meets with as well.
Originally from South Haven, Michigan, Gus currently resides in Dewitt, Michigan with his three children. He spends much of his time supporting his kids at floor hockey, basketball games, and scouting. Gus loves spending time outdoors on dirt bikes and going camping in the summer. In the winter, he enjoys skiing with his kids.
Gus is looking forward to meeting you.
Our nearby friend Larry from Lansing, MI was having issues with the wall in his basement bowing outward. With on-going observation, he could tell the wall was continuing to move. Larry became extremely frightened about the walls future and called us in search of professional help. We came to his home and created a solution consisting of five wall anchors. Wall anchors are perfect for returning a wall back to its original position and reinforcing the entire foundation. We stabilized the home with a steel rod that runs from the wall anchor to an anchor placed in the exterior of the home. Once we placed the plates, we had permanently stabilized his basement. With this solution in place, Larry can remain calm knowing his wall will eventually return to its original position.
Josh had always felt that his basement was unusually colder than the rest of his home, but he thought it was normal. Luckily, he called us for a free quote to see if there was an underlying issue. Our team determined that his basement was so cold because the window was allowing outside air into his basement.
Our team fixed Josh's issue with an Egress Window installation. This was a quick fix for Josh and now his basement is on par with the rest of his home.
We know how much everyone hates having to go in their crawl space. It's dark, dusty, and even a little bit creepy and there's always a possibilty of those unwanted critters/insects. We think you should be able to enjoy or at least use every part of your home. That's why we will send a system design specialist in your crawl space or basement to take a look and see what we can to waterproof and make your space more liveable.
In this home in Charlotte you can tell the crawl space was not an area these homeowners visted often. There's a dirt floor and insulation hanging, I mean let's be honest what would be the point of going down there. We were however, able to revive this space and make it usable to the owners. We have never understood the point of a dirt floor in a crawl space, you wouldn't use dirt for your basement floor so why is your crawl space any different. Also when that fiberglass insulation gets moisture in it, it will become heavy and fall. We can fix all of this with CleanSpace though.
CleanSpace is a heavy plastic liner used to create the perfect vapor barrier in your crawl space. It is fitted to your crawl space to cover every post, the floor, the walls and anywhere we have to worry about water coming in. The best part for these homeowners now is that they can store stuff in their crawl space since that the floor isn't dirt anymore. It will keep moisture out and any critters.
These Charlotte, MI residents were experiencing water seepage through the poured walls in their crawlspace and were concerned about mold growth.
We installed our patented CleanSpace crawl space encapsulation system. CleanSpace is a 20mm thick plastic lining that completely seals off the crawl space from the elements below. No more water or cold air can enter the crawl space with this installment. CleanSpace is made with anti-microbial properties that prevent mold growth, so these residents can rest assured that their basement will not fall victim to mold.
This 1940's home had some serious bowing walls. There were cracks not only on the inside of the walls but the outside as well. The customer bought the home on land contract and couldn't even move in until the home was considered stable and safe. They called the right people, because here at Ayers we have multiple solutions that can fix bowing walls. We did a thorough inspection of the inside and outside of the home and came up with the best solution that would fix the problem once and for all.
The answer was to install our PowerBrace System. PowerBraces are designed to fix the problem permanently so there is not worrying about having to have something else done in the future. PowerBraces can actually straighten the wall over time back to its original position. There is also no heavy equipment needed so there won't be any disturbance to the lawn/landscaping.
