    Installing Egress Windows and Wells in Coldwater, MI

    Jesse and Linda wanted to turn their basement into a finished basement space. So they called our team and we installed an egress window and well. Egress windows provide a safe exit in case of emergency so they are required in finished basement living areas. In addition to having a safe exit in your basement, these windows provide lots of natural light. Lastly, most windows offer minimal protection against outside air entering the home due to poor insulation around the window. Egress windows will help ventilate your indoor areas and prevent unwanted allergens from entering your house.

    Preparing for the Spring with Egress Windows

    Springtime is quickly approaching and with the well anticipated season comes dust, pollen and allergies. However for those dreading the spring, you no longer have to. At Ayers Basement Systems our goal is to help make your home a comfortable environment for years to come. 

    According to the Environmental Protection Agency there are three key ways to improve indoor air quality: 

            1. Ventilate your indoor areas

            2. Utilize air filtration systems

            3. Cease contact with airborne allergens

    The client's old windows provided minimal insulation and allowed outside to enter their home. Our heavy duty egress windows prevent pollen from entering your home keeping it pollen-free. To ensure constant clean air, consider our waterproofing services as well.

     

  • Steps for an Ideal Crawl Space

    Steps for an Ideal Crawl Space

    Many homeowners are not satisfied with their crawl space area. Typically they’re damp, musty, filled with miscellaneous debris and lack proper ventilation ー all ingredients fueling a recipe for disaster. 

    However, at Ayers Basement Systems we take pride in mastering the art of crawl space encapsulation and waterproofing. In the case of Jennifer M.’s damp Potterville crawl space, the solution was simple: Clean Space Vapor Barrier System

    First, we sealed all of the doors and vents so that outside air and humidity was no longer able to sneak in. Next we installed a crawl space drain and sump pump system. When combined, the drain and sump pump eliminates and removes any flooding water. Lastly, the area is encapsulated with our Vapor Barrier liner, a thick, durable liner that traps all other moisture in the air and ground. Without moisture, your crawl space will become smell-free and fungi-free.

    After following all of the steps above we were able to completely transform Jennifer’s debris-filled, moist crawl space into a dry, ideal one.

Other benefits include access to fresh air, emergency exit capabilities, and an increase in home value.
