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.
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.
Looking for ways to cut your electricity bill? If your basement walls are surrounded by those tiny, virtually useless windows consider having them replaced with egress windows. Their large frame provide over 50% more sunlight than the original windows, allowing you to cut back on the electricity used to light the area. Other benefits include access to fresh air, emergency exit capabilities, and an increase in home value.
Charles has a finished basement that has been colder than normal lately, so he decided to check for problems. Eventually, he called us for a free quote. Our team determined that it was his basement window that was giving him air flow issues. We recommended an Egress Window installation and Charles agreed. Now he doesn't have to fear going in his chilly basement.
At Ayers’ Basement Systems, making your home safe and comfortable is our top priority. That’s why when Sidney told us about her husband’s health concerns, we gladly took on the task of installing replacement egress windows that were up-to-code, beautifully crafted, and that provide a variety of benefits.
Our egress window wells feature durable, built-in steps that allow easy access to a safe exit in case of an emergency. They are even equipped with polycarbonate window well covers that can hold up to 500 pounds of weight.
Just because winter is gloomy and cold doesn’t mean your basement has to be too. Kristen and Connor noticed that their basement was becoming chilly as the cold weather quickly approached. We suggested replacing their old drafty window. Not only does it stop the harsh winter winds from sneaking in, but it’s also a great source of natural light!
After nearly 8 years in their Zeeland, Michigan home, Laurie and Vern decided they wanted more space. What better place to add one than their finished basement! To bring the room up to code compliant, the couple enlisted our help. Our systems design specialists replaced their old, useless window with a functional egress window. The new window not only makes their new bedroom code compliant, but it also supplies fresh air and natural lighting!
Dennis and Blanca began to notice large puddles of water whenever it rained. While rain is great for growing the greenery outside of the home, water aides in growing mold and fungi inside as well.
Our systems design specialist recommended a full basement waterproofing, including a SaniDry XP Air System and an egress window installation. The SaniDry XP Basement Air System is a powerful dehumidifier designed to remove 10 times the amount of water from the air as a regular dehumidifier. As a result, dry and clean air is produced and ultimately reducing the risk of mold growth. The egress window installation also allows more natural light in the home to eliminate mold and mildew growth.
