This company had some water issues in the basement where water was coming up from cracks in the floor as well as some areas where the wall and floor meet. There was enough water to create a river flowing across the floor to the drain. The owner bought the property about a year ago so they were unsure how long there had been a water issue and they wanted it fixed while they were renovating. We installed the WaterGuard French Drain system to collect the water and send it to the sump pump to be expelled outside. We then installed the TripleSafe Sump Pump, which provides the business with three levels of protection in case of a pump malfunction or a power outage.
A homeowner from Lansing contacted us referring to her basement that had a weak foundation wall. She did not know how to fix it, so she called us. We drove to her home and installed Wall Anchors. We install these by digging a tiny hole in that are a few feet away from the home. Then we drill a steel rod through a 1-inch hole in the basement wall. After that, the rod connects to an anchor that is placed in the hole of the soil. Once we place the plates on afterward, we have permanently stabilized the basement. So now the homeowner doesn't have to worry about an unsafe basement ever again.
This church's enteryway was cracked and sunken. Water was also getting inside due to water not being moved away from the door since the cocnrete was unlevel. We used PolyLevel to lift the falling concrete and NexusPro to seal creacks and joints. Both have a short curing time so they won't be inconveneint- PolyLevel is ready in 15 minutes while NexusPro takes about an hour.
Paul had some cracks inside and out side of his home. There was a floor joist where the cracks were starting and it was starting to bow. He was worried it would get worse and wanted a solution. We installed Push Piers to stabilize the home. These piers are installed next to the footings and attached with a heavy duty steel bracket and are the best option when soil conditions are unknown to permanently stabilize the home.
We had been in talks with the owners of this University property since last December. After months of passing the proposal up the chain, the job was finally approved. The main concern was the regular leaking of the basement walls. For any basement waterproofing, one of the key aspects is a sump pump system. The hole shown in the before photo is an open sump that was installed in the home previously. It wasn’t able to keep up with the heavy water load that was regularly flowing into the home. After talks with one of the system design specialist, the owners decided on one of our most reliable sump pump systems, the SuperSump.
Seen in the after photo, the SuperSump is capable of discharging over 2,000 gallons of water per hour and has an optional backup pump that will keep water out even if the power goes out. Also, unlike the previous sump, the SuperSump comes equipped with a lid to keep out any type of debris that could clog the system. With the SuperSump and several other waterproofing products included in this installation, this basement won’t have to worry about leaking walls again.
Mark from Muskegon, MI needed his basement waterproofed. After going out for our free inspection, we decided that the best case of action was to suggest to Mark that we install our WaterGuard Below Floor Drain.
As its name states, WaterGuard rests below your floor slab, but on top of the foundation footing. This is important because now that it’s on top of the footing, mud will not get into the drain and clog it, simply because the drain is not sitting in the mud. The WaterGuard also has a drain outlet directly to the sump pump and will not cause any damage to the foundation. Also, since it's installed below the floor slab, you won't even be able to notice that it's there once it's completely installed.
There simply isn't an interior waterproofing system that is more efficient and longer lasting than our WaterGuard system, so if your basement is in need of some waterproofing, pick up the phone and give Ayers a call!
Tonnie was having flooding issues in the basement of his office building. He called our team to help him fix this problem. He needed us to install the WaterGuard System and TripleSafe Sump Pump after regular work hours so his business would not be interrupted. Our team was able to work with his requests and get his basement dry within just a few days. WaterGuard is an indoor drainage system that is protecting Tonnie's basement from water damage by catching any leakage from higher walls or floors before it reaches his basement floor. TripleSafe is a Sump Pump system that’s main goal is to keep his basement dry. It is powered by batteries which allows it to protect his basement from floods even during power outages.
We have probably all seen ugly sump pumps that just look like holes in the basement, just like the picture on the left, but that is not how its supposed to be, sump pumps should be clean, like the one on the right. We took this Traverse City sump pump and replaced it something that is loads better, the SuperSump. The SuperSump contains a pump stand (prevents clogging of any debris in the sump liner), pump alarm (for when the basement floods), and an airtight sump lid with a floor drain in it (helps water to go down but not air to come up). This homeowner should never have to worry about water problems in her basement ever again.
