A customer in Jackson approached us with a wet crawl space that needed help before it would be invaded by mold. Luckily, we had just the fix to keep this homeowner's basement dry from the outside enviornment. We installed our moisture fighting CleanSpace system. CleanSpace is a 20 mil thick plastic liner that fits to the crawl space to completely seal the home from the earth. Polyester cord reinforcement allows for a lot of durability, to make it last longer than the home will. This liner also contains an antimicrobial additive to prevent mold. This liner should also be combined with CleanSpace vent covers to insulate and seal the air out.
Clean air is essential to living a healthy lifestyle and Julie C. needed a way to ensure that her family would be able to comfortably breathe in her Leslie, MI home. In an effort to create a crawl space that lacks mold, pests, and moisture, Julie contacted us at Ayers Basement Systems.
We began by installing CleanSpace liners that make sure to seal outdoor air and bacteria. Our state-of-the-art liner is engineered with an inorganic material that protects not only your basement but your family as well. CleanSpace liners are made from thick plastic that when combined without drainage matting, combat bacteria and mold from entering while allowing water to flow to the SuperSump pump.
Ayers always look out for our customers, even after we perform a project to their satisfaction. Kathy is one of these customers. After waterproofing her basement back in 2007, Kathy then noticed the wall leaning, causing a crack within the wall. Knowing that Ayers can provide PowerBraces, which can stabilize her walls and foundation, she called us right back to get them installed.
I can't stress enough how important it is to have a sump pump that works properly and is the right one for your home. This home was having water coming in through the poured concrete walls. They had previously had another company do the work but it didn't fix the problem and that company is not out of business. We were able to install our WaterGuard system and a sump pump to do the job
The sump pump we installed is our TripleSafe pump that that is literally the king or queen of all pumps. There are 3 pumps built in the 1 liner. The first pump does all the work but the 2nd pump is there in the case the first one can't keep up. Then the third pump is battery powered in the emergency case of a power outage. The TripleSafe also comes with an alarm to alert you if it can't keep up.
The best thing about all of our pumps not just the TripleSafe, is that they come with air tight lids. This ensures that water that enters the pump doesn't evaporate back into the air and create more moisture in your crawl space or basement.
The homeowners in Vicksburg, MI had water coming into their home at such large amounts that in some areas of the basement the water was ankle deep. The existing sump pump they had was not able to do the job it needed to do to keep their basement dry.
Our professional team installed the TripleSafe sump pump in the homeowners basement. The TripleSafe is ideal because it gives you triple protection with three sump pumps in one. The first pump will remove the water from your home effectively. The second pump is there for you in the rare ocassions that the first pump fails. The second pump is more powerful and equipped with a seperate discharge line. Finally, the last pump is equipped with batteries so it is there for you if the power goes out.
Thanks to TripleSafe the homeowners basement is now dry.
The homeowner is Goshen, IN had bad water damage on their walls in their basement from water seeping in through the cracks.
Our professional team saw these damaged walls and installed BrightWall paneling. BrightWall paneling easily transforms damp, ugly basement walls into clean, beautiful walls that never need paint or maintenance. BrightWall panels will direct wall seepage down to the perimeter drain lines that carry water to the sump pump effectively removing all water from the basement. BrightWalls are waterproof, stain resistant, effective moisture and vapor barriers and maintenance free!
We received a call from a customer in Granger, Indiana about his basement, he was experiencing wet walls so we gave him a free estimate and then decided to install WaterGuard technology among many things. The WaterGuard is the pipe that runs water underneath the floors. This system runs on top of the footing instead of alongside it. The WaterGuard has a big drain outlet to the sump. It also has a built in tiny gap between the floor and the wall so that it can drain any wall leaks. This system is designed not to clog by having holes in case of debris clogging the pipe. The WaterGuard collects the water from drains in the basement.
The homeowner in Paw Paw, MI called in and explained her situation to us. The home is set on a high water table area and regularly experiences water coming in from the floor and walls. They found about half of the floor was covered in water. It was time for Ayers to come in and solve this issue.
Our System Design Specialist reviewed the damage and offered a solution. Ayers would install a French Drain System to prevent and protect from water entering the basement, leaving it dry! Our French Drain System is installed underneath the flooring near the perimeter of the basement walls to capture any water from the floor/walls. The water that is captured is run down to the sump pump. From there, the sump pump discharge the water outside through a discharge line located outside underground.
A homeowner called in with a few issues going on in his basement. He had cracks on the wall and on the floor, that was allowing water to flow in. After calling other company to remove the water in his basement, he decided to call Ayers.
One of our System Design Specialist took a trip out to see the damage. After reviewing the problems, our System Design Specialist suggested our French Drain System was required to prevent and protect against rain entering the basement again.
Our French Drain System consist of an effective perimeter drainage system. This system is installed underneath the flooring near the walls in a basement. Water that enters the home is caught by these pipes and run down to a sump pump. There, the sump pump will carry the water away from the home through a drainage pipe. This allows for a dry basement, all the time.
Our Smart Jack system adds strength and stability to the places where your home needs it most.
The Smart Jack system replaced the DIY "fix" of using wood blocks to maintain the structure of the home. In general, wood blocks are not a solution, they're a band aid that ignores the real problem.
Our process creates a solid foundation for the home to sit on. The weight of the home becomes evenly distributed, the steel beams and columns provide strength, and you no longer need to worry. For more information, check out our photo gallery on this job.
Brian O. contacted us because the floors above his crawl space severely sloped and needed to be leveled. He also was having a problem with the home being very humid which was happening becaues the crawl space was wet.
To fix the wet crawl space we installed our CleanSpace system to encapsulate the area. CleanSpace makes sure no outside elements can get in and it's very sturdy so it can still be walked on and had stuff stored on it. To fix the sinking floors we installed our SmartJacks. SmartJacks are installed and then the weight of the home is transferred to them so it's not on the unlevel, sinking soil.
The crawl space under this cottage was very shallow and damp, along with extreme sloping that needed leveling. The homeowners contacted Ayers, who arrived at their home with solutions.
Our team of experts installed SmartJacks, adjustable steel piers that were designed to support weak points under your home. In addition to that, a CleanSpace vapor barrier was also installed to fix and waterproof the crawl space. CleanSpace is a specially designed liner that keeps out pests, humidity, and moisture-ensuring a complete crawl space encapsulation.
The result is a beautiful, dry, mold free crawl space.
One customer from Pierson, Michigan came to us with a very wet and unsafe crawlspace. We came to the rescue and saved this crawl space from being destroyed by the outside enviornment. We were able to do this by installing CleanSpace technology. CleanSpace is a very durable mold-fighting liner. This liner fights mold very well due to its anti-microbial addditive. It also is reinforced with polyester cord to ensure that it will be protecting your crawl space from the outside enviornment for quite a long time.
When Vanessa was looking at this house to purchase, the crawlspace left something to be desired. However, from being a previously satisfied Ayers customer, she knew Ayers can help her again with providing a nice & clean crawlspace for this new home. Having a Smart Sump installed, as well as Drainage Matting and Rim Joist Insulation to help keep the crawl space dry, clean and most importantly, free of water.
Brian H. noticed some cracks in his garage. Unfortunately, the slab outside of his garage was beginning to sink. We used PolyLevel to raise the slab. It has a lifting force that ranges from 2,000 to 4,000 pound per square foot. PolyLevel requires fewer holes than mudjacking, has a quick cure time, is waterproof, and environmentally friendly.
