              I had only heard good comments regarding their business ethics and workmanship. You have an awesome group of young men. They worked tirelessly for 2 days. I never heard one curse word or any disagreements among them. They were a total team from start to finish. I hope I never have a reason to need your services but would not hesitate to call you if the need arose. I will recommend you 100%.

    Sally C. of Alphena, MI

    Customer Testimonial

              We want you to know what remarkable employees you have. I went to the computer looking for someone to help us decide what we could do for our basement. We had two issues, which were damp spots with water and crumbling walls. Your company was the first one that I seen. I answered the questions and submitted my answers. Within 10 minutes my phone rang and the lady who called was very helpful and set up an appointment for us. We had to cancel our appointment and set it for another date because of a family emergency. Not only did Dennis James call to confirm our appointment but he was even concerned for our family. Dennis was extremely thorough. He showed us all the different things to choose from. As we walked through our basement, we told him what we wanted and our concerns about what we could afford. When he left, I said to my husband “we cannot afford to do this this year or maybe ever.” So when Dennis said he would come back with a plan, I said that we would listen but I knew that we couldn’t afford to do anything this year. Wow! I was wrong. He had listened to everything that we said and helped us figure out what needed to be done and had came up with a plan with his boss. Before I knew it, we were signing papers. He is a very good salesman. Now to tell you that as a woman, I expected a mess. I was prepared, but I cannot begin to explain how impressed I was with Ron and his team! They are three of the hardest-working men that I’ve seen in many years. They worked great as a team and what I thought was unrealistic time to be done, they completed everything and all the clean up that they did was so good that I didn’t have to do anything. They were very professional and polite. As a former manager I always loved to hear how good my employees were and wanted to let you know that you have the best. Sincerely, Sally

    A Unique PowerBrace Solution in Lansing, MI

    This was a classic foundation problem with a slight twist. One of the basement walls in this Lansing, MI rental homes was crumbling inward. The homeowner had installed a retaining wooden wall a few feet in front of the original to hold back dirt and other debris, but now, that wall was tilting inward as well. After a visit from a house inspector ended with a red tag, the homeowner knew he had to something about the wall.

    Our PowerBrace system has been used to fix all types of different retaining walls and bowing foundations, so the crew was confident the system would get the job done here as well. The Powerbrace beams were installed the same way they always are, with the top of the beam being bracketed to the floor joists in the ceiling and the bottom of the beam securely installed into the foundation. The big difference between this and a typical PowerBrace installation was that the beams are usually in contact with the collapsing wall from top to bottom.  Since the wooden wall was only half the height of the basement, that wasn’t a possibility this time around. Like with every other PowerBrace system, these beams’ tightness can be adjusted after installation, so the retaining wall will continue to stand strong even as time passes. While PowerBrace is a permanent solution for this retaining wooden wall, Ayers offers a variety of systems that could have prevented the original stone wall from failing. If you’re at all worried about your own foundation, then be sure to give us a call before it’s too late.

    WaterGuard Saves Former O'Rafferty High School in Lansing, MI

    Think of this as more of a "before" and "during," so you can see what WaterGuard installation looks like in progress.

    The owners of the building that was once O'Rafferty High School in Lansing called us because the sump pump wasn't able to keep up with the water (and had a pretty nasty iron ochre problem) and the basement had a steadily increasing water problem.

    After installing a new TripleSafe sump pump, it took almost 600 feet of WaterGuard, and another 100 feet of cross drainage and 200 feet of extra discharge line, to properly drain the water in this huge basement. 

    When WaterGuard is installed, it's necessary to take out some of the concrete floor, as well as cut back the walls at floor level in order to properly install it. This, along with the cross tile drainage, is what is pictured in the after. Post-installation, it's just a matter of pouring new concrete and replacing the removed sections of wall, and the basement is good as new.

    Sagging Beam Supported By SmartJacks In Burlington, MI

    The basement in this Burlington, MI basement had a couple of beams that were sagging pretty significantly. They needed some strong supports to help straighten them. Our crew installed a series of SmartJacks. To install these jacks, we remove a small amount of concrete and a cube of earth underneath. That gets filled in with compacted stone, the footing gets set on top of that, and the concrete is replaced. This creates a situation in which the weight that the jack is supporting is transferred deep into the ground past troubled soils. The jacks are adjustable and not only support an incredible amount of weight, but they come with an opportunity to lift the floors and walls above to their original position. These jacks significantly straightened the sagging beams.

    Protecting a Charlotte, MI Basement with FloodRing

    The crew took a trip out to Charlotte, MI to help out a customer that we had been in contact with for quite some time. Once she realized that her basement waterproofing problems were only worsening, she decided it was time to do something about it. Water was coming into her basement from multiple different areas, but this before and after focuses on the leaky water heater. Water heaters are one of the most common causes of basement flooding. Their leaking is usually a sign that it’s time for a repair or replacement.

    To prevent this leakage - or one in the future - from flooding the entire basement, we installed a water heater flood protection system called FloodRing. Once the ring was firmly sealed to the ground, it held the leaking water to an isolated area of the basement. The portion of the floor that is slightly off color in the after photo shows where the concrete was excavated to connect a perimeter drainage system. Any water collected in the ring will then be discharged through the system and no longer threaten the basement. Thanks to FloodRing and several other waterproofing products, this basement is dry and protected.

    Bowing Wall In Augusta, MI Permanently Supported

    Christine was buying a new home with a basement. Her one major concern with the space was that a horizontal crack in the block walls served as a sign of some significant bowing. She was looking for a way to ensure that the walls were permanently supported and possibly straightened. We had the cure. PowerBraces are a zinc-coated steel I-beam that support the home above, prevent further bowing, and use a unique tightening feature to potentially improve the condition of the wall over time. PowerBraces generally extend from the floor to the floor joists above. In this case, the PowerBraces were installed on the cement shelf so a uniquely shorter PowerBrace was used.

    Two sump pumps, and still a wet basement? That was the case when the customer called us - wet and only getting wetter no matter what they did.

    You could have a dozen sump pumps, but it wouldn't get your basement any drier than one if there was no way to get the water to them. So we installed the WaterGuard drainage system as well as a new TripleSafe sump pump, and that wet basement is going, going, gone.

    TripleSafe Sump Pump Saves Saint Joseph, MI Basement

    Sump pumps are a must have for any basement and unfortunately, some basements don't have one. We installed this advanced/high quality sump pump in Saint Joseph, MI which totally changed the amount of unwanted water in the home for the better.  The TripleSafe is the best sump pump on the market and will protect the basement for flooding for a VERY long time. TripleSafe is a sump pump with three different pumps in one liner. The first being the 1/3 hp zoeller pump which does most of the pumping and is placed at the bottom of the liner. The second is the 1/2 hp zoeller that is placed slightly higher than the first. This pump is more powerful but will only be turned on when needed. The final pump is the battery-operated UltraSump DC which is used in case of a power outage, this pump can pump up to 24,000 gallons of water. Now this homeowner can rely on their sump pump to move the unnecessary water out of our home.

    Collapsed Wall Rebuilt With Shotcrete in Zeeland, MI

    This 80 year old home had foundation problems for a years but the problem was ignored. Eventually, the wall caved in. The good news is that it was fixable and we had a great solution for it. On the exterior, the wall was neatly built back up with blocks and sealed. On the interior, we used a product called Shotcrete to rebuild. Shotcrete is essentially concrete that is shot through a firehose at the wall and evenly applied. The structure is now strong and reliable once again.

    Encapsulating Crawl Space in Drafty Rodney, MI Home

    Sally C. and her fiancé built an addition on their home that was built above the crawl space. During the cold, winter months, they were experiencing drafts in the room located above that space. Without an encapsulated and insulated crawl space, this would continue to be a problem for these homeowners and they needed an easy and effective way to fix it.

    Our team of experts decided to install SilverGlo panels, CleanSpace and an EverLast door.

    We first installed the SilverGlo wall panels that reflect heat back into the space and prevent drafts in the home. These wall panels are made from inorganic materials that make them moisture and mold resistant.

    The waterproof and vapor proof CleanSpace liner was installed next to seal the crawl space off from any type of moisture. The liner is extremely durable and securely fastened to the walls to prevent it from falling down or becoming damaged over time. 

    Lastly, we installed an EverLast crawl space door to create an airtight barrier between the outside environment and the crawl space. The door is waterproof and made with inorganic materials that will protect it from rust, rot and mold.

    Musty Crawl Space Fixed With CleanSpace in Traverse City, MI

    Karen and Bill T. called because they noticed an old, musty smell coming from their crawl space. The main problem was that their space had a dirt floor, which contributes to a high moisture level. If the space is not sealed off from the earth, water vapor will continuously enter. This can lead to mold, rot and that unfortunate musty smell. Air also rises due to the stack effect, meaning any water vapor, musty smell, or mold spores will travel up into your home bringing moisture and mold spores with it. Our team visited their home and knew that encapsulating the crawl space with CleanSpace was the answer to their problem. The CleanSpace liner is extremely durable and waterproof to prevent any source of water from getting in whether it is through a leak or evaporation. The liner also has an antimicrobial additive to stop mold growth, which is likely the cause of the musty smell in the space. Karen and Bill will no longer have to worry about the effects of their crawl space!
