Testimonials for Ayers Basement Systems

For twenty years, Mr. and Mrs. S. dealt with extremely high humidity levels in their Hillsdale, MI home. The problem was so severe that during the wintertime, they would notice condensation all over the windows which they had to constantly wipe off, and even leave towels near the windows to collect dripping water. Mr. S. suspected that their crawl space could be the cause of their woes, but never did any research on the subject. He also felt that crawling into that space to inspect and properly fix it was too big a job for him to tackle on his own. One day he finally decided to get an estimate and see how much it would cost to get his crawl space fixed, and as a savvy homeowner, he did his homework first, searching online for a solution. When he came across Ayers Basement Systems' website, he didn't need to research any other company doing similar work. The more he read about the company's crawl space encapsulation solution, the more confident he felt that this was the right solution for his home. "I didn't want the cheap job. I wanted the good job." -- he explains. Mrs S. was extremely impressed with the production crew from the minute they arrived at her house and introduced themselves. "We had other companies come in and do various works around our home, but this is the first time I had a company -- when they started to work -- to introduce themselves individually. She was also very pleased with the professionalism and cleanliness of the entire crew, who cleaned up after themselves at the end of each day. As for the results, the S. were also very pleased. According to Mr. S., the humidity level in the entire house dropped significantly. They would gladly recommend Ayers Basement Systems to anyone having crawl space problems.

Of the fifteen years since Cathy D. moved into her home in Mason, Michigan, the last five were especially difficult because of terrible water issues in her basement. After heavy rains her basement would become severely flooded. That is when she called Ayers Basement Systems for help. When inspecting her basement, they found some very unique conditions that would require some adaptation of their current interior basement drainage tiles to work.   Typically, WaterGuard drain tiles are installed on top of the footing, but her home had been built with uncommonly thick footing. The crew then opted for an alternative method, which consisted of installing the drain by the interior edge of the footing to capture ground water, and a flange against the wall to collect any water seeping through the block walls. BrightWall panels, which fit snuggly into the drainage system, serve as a vapor barrier and help brighten up the stained basement walls. Cathy was very pleased with the knowledge, professionalism, and cleanliness of the crew and even more pleased with the results. Her basement was put to the test several times since then, by storms and snow melt, and her basement remained dry, clean and comfortable. When it comes to basement waterproofing in Lansing, Kalamazoo, Grand Rapids and surrounding areas, trust Virgil Ayers and his team at Ayers Basement Systems. They are Michigan’s experts in “All Things Basementy!”

Jason's Commercial building in Lansing, MI had two problems that needed to be addressed. There were foundation drainage problems, and water was leaking into the facility's elevator shaft. He chose Ayers Basement Systems for the job mostly due to the flexibility of all the exclusive and patented products we offer, that allowed us to custom design a solution that works of all his very specific problems. "Every water control situation is not the same. It is very possible that they will have to design a solution that fits your needs, that is not the same as somebody else's, and I think they were expertly equipped to be able to do that," -- explains Jason.

Ayers Basement Systems had previously fixed the basement of two close family members. That is why, when it came the time to fix the crawl space of his new home, Pat S, knew exactly which company he wanted to hire for the job! And he couldn't be happier with the results!

  Gene D.'s home in Holland, MI was built in the late 1890s -- and as you would expect in a home that old -- the basement had its share of problems, which could be felt throughout the house. Lack of proper foundation drainage led to water seepage. The moisture wicking through the irregular stone walls, and the floor created a humid, moldy and musty smelling environment in the basement. Because the air in any building moves upwards, the musty smells were being carried upstairs, along with a lot of the humidity. The floors above the basement were always very cold and the rooms, uncomfortable. Fortunately, Gene called Ayers Basement Systems to the rescue, and they went above and beyond to make sure the job was done correctly, and the basement was permanently sealed and waterproofed. Gene now has a dry, clean and healthy basement, a more comfortable home and, with our Transferable Lifetime Warranty, Gene and his family can continue enjoying their beautiful old house and dry basement for many years to come!

Tammy's home in Elk Rapids, MI had a wet basement. After a couple weeks of seeing Ayers Basement Systems commercials during the local morning news show, she decided to call the company for an estimate. After inspecting the basement, the company's system design specialist outlined all their options, which included doing the work from the outside and digging out the foundation to replace the drain tile, or installing and interior drainage system along the internal perimeter of the basement walls. Tammy is very impressed with the entire experience he had in dealing with the company, and extremely satisfied with the results. She's been recommending Ayers Basement Systems to many of her own customers who purchased properties with wet basements, and they too are very happy with the company.

John Conrad was very knowledgeable about the situation. Matt Houghtaling and his crew went above expected service! They were fantastic, respectful of property and really knew what they were doing. Matt updated me of changes and totally advised me of the the situation. I cannot express how grateful I am for your expertise and courteous service. I greatly appreciate the service of Matt and his crew. I will recommend them! 
Barb G. of West Bloomfield, MI
This note comes with great appreciation for the quality work done on my damp and wet basement of 30 years. The three men that did the work deserve a round of applause!! I have hired a lot of contractors, but these 3 were the very best workers that I have ever seen! They worked constantly from when they arrived until the job was over 2 1/2 days later. The basement remains completely dry and warm. It is nice to go down there and look around occasionally because it is a job very well done. I would like to thank Paulson's Construction for recommending Ayers Basement Systems. Mr. Ayers priced out the job and it was exactly as he quoted. This is the kind of firm that I would highly recommend. Thanks again and continue to do good work.

The ain reason we chose Ayers Basement Systems was the knowledgeable sales rep and availalbe financing. The installation crew was very polite, informative and courteous. They did a great job and the cleanup was satisfactory.
Karen of Grass Lake, MI
I just wanted to commend Dan Bemman who came out to my mom's house last week (8/27) to repair her system. While he was there he pointed out some soot on the water heater and recommended we get it checked. It helped us discover a low-level long-term CO exposure my mom was suffering from. If this had gone on any longer, my mom probably would've died as her kidneys had already started shutting down. Mom is now doing much better. Thanks again for Dan noticing this and bringing it to our attention.

I just had Ayers do my crawl space. I want to write to you to advise that I am so pleased with the job done by David Cervantes and his crew. David is an outstanding representative of your company. He was professional, pleasant, and explained the job to me thoroughly. I would highly recommend him and his crew to do any of the jobs your company provides.

Ken was very informative. We read the book that was sent to me which helped me ask the right questions. The crew that did the install in our home were great and very polite! They informed of us everything they were doing every step of the way.  We chose Ayers because out of 3 estimates, Ken was the only one who actually took the time to look and  explain in depth what was needed. He answered all of my questions and we knew we were in good hands by the way he spoke with such knowledge and such confidence that the uneasiness of having the work done had left. The book that was sent to me was awesome! I read the entire book front to back! It helped me with my other estimates. I knew what questions to ask and what the answers should be concerning. I was thankful for it!  Ayers transformed my crawlspace from an unpleasant environment to completely finished with their CleanSpace product. My floors are warmer, the earth smell is gone and my home is cleaner with less dust. I have a fear of rodents, snakes or any other animal getting down in my crawlspace. We are very happy that Ayers is there to help with these things. The value of our home will even go up!  Thank you Ayers!!! Sincerely, Your happiest customer

I wanted a dry basement and had to just take the word of the representatives I met at the building show. So far it has worked and I am so thankful. I just felt right about it and that is why I did it, most companies haven't worked for me.

The foreman was very friendly, efficient and knowledgeable of how to fix our problem. I will tell others about how we were treated and will recommend your company.
Joe of Williamston, MI
I met the Ayers rep at the MSU Lansing Home Show and set up an inspection. A year ago I had contacted 4 other companies and none of them were interested in the job. Ayers had exactly the technology needed to fix things.  I was VERY impressed with the foreman (Evan) and assistant (Austin). They were here twice; once for garage repair and once for deck piers. 2 other helpers were in attendance at various times and did well. Evan was very knowledgeable about the project and the options and instilled a lot of confidence. He and his crew worked smoothly and constantly, exhibiting an extremely positive work ethic. Both Evan and Austin quickly tackled physically demanding jobs and kept at them until satisfactorily completed. It was a pleasure to have young men such as these do the work and to be able to relax and know it was going to be done correctly. The jobs were a bit unique; a concrete block garage collapsing into the creek was stabilized, and a large deck that had tilted was restored to level and made secure. The deck overhung a steep creek bank and required some creative, difficult work. Evan and Austin are definitely valuable assets for the company. The crew attended to all details in a very systematic fashion. They cleaned up all that was expected of them. The quality of the work appears to be top notch.
