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.

  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.

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

My overall experience with Ayers was top drawer. Internally, the call staff returned all of my calls promptly. David, the project manager, was great to work with. I could tell he was smart and had a lot of experience with what he was doing. All together the crew was knowledgeable and quick workers. They left the job site clean and better than they found it.  I used Ayers once before and was pleased with the speed and efficiency of the installation.  Thank you, Dinning Builders Inc. Terry

Matthew is an amazing person; you can tell what a good man he is from the first time you meet him. He is genuine and cares about what he does with Ayers and wants to give you the absolute BEST outcome possible. I trusted him immediately! The amount of work that we ultimately needed was over $10,000 more than we had planned for, and if it weren't for Matthew's ability to show compassion towards me and my severe disappointment, I never would have listened, absorbed, or understood what steps would be necessary to take care of our crawl space. If it weren't for Matthew I also never would have signed a new work proposal under those circumstances. I trusted him completely and will always be grateful for what he did for me that day. Matthew's crew, Dylan and Charles, worked long and hard on my project. They went above and beyond with how quickly they worked. The job had its challenges and it didn't slow them down. Our low ceiling and steel beams made it a hazardous working condition, but they persevered, and the job was finished better and sooner than anticipated. I couldn't be happier! This is the beginning of a new and healthier life for my family and me; truly life-changing. May God bless Matthew, his crew, Greg and your company.

We had the Ayers system installed in October and after the May rains the basement is still completely dry even though we have had standing water in our side yard for three weeks. Justin was out today to fix a minor problem with our outside drain and did a great job!

Despite a lower price offered from a competitor, I felt more comfortable with the information Steve provided, coupled with the company rating and quality of products offered. The communication from sales, administration and operations was excellent. The new sump pumps are very quiet & no longer hear them turning on/off. We are now able to utilize the crawl area space for storage, as the encapsulated space is clean and neat. Thank you for a job well done!

In April 2020, a team from Ayers came out to install a new system in my basement. The crew was extremely hard working, polite and conscientious. Unfortunately, on May 19 when the Edenville dam broke, my home was severely flooded. I called Ayers because the sump was no longer working and Matt G came out within a couple hours. He was able to figure out the issue was with the new outlet that was underwater during the flood and quickly get the sump running again. Matt took a look around at the wreckage of my basement and lower level and made some calls, securing two dehumidifiers I could rent at a very reasonable cost. The next day, a Saturday, he brought them to my home and installed them. Excellent service – but it did not end there. Matt jumped in with a team of volunteer friends and family to help clear the debris from my home. He worked very hard for several hours. When he overheard me say that I had not eaten in several days, he handed me his own snack bar and encouraged me to take a break and eat. That kind of care and concern for a stranger, “customer” or not, was pretty incredible. After taking time to explain how to optimize the dehumidifiers and offering great advice on flood recovery, Matt spent the rest of a long day checking in with my neighbors to see if he could help them out too. Although it was very frustrating to spend so much money to waterproof my basement, only to be flooded by something well outside what any warranty could possibly be expected to cover, I am SO glad I went with Ayers! Every single member of the Ayers staff that I have come in contact with has been exceptional, but Matt deserves a special mention for his compassion and dedication. He represents the company very well and truly is a terrific human being! I am extremely grateful for his help – it made a very difficult time easier and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.

Dear Ayers Basement Systems, I am very pleased with the WaterGuard System, exterior foundation flashing and the trench drain with lawnscape outlet which you installed at my home on June 15-17. My situation was a little different in that it was my garage which was leaking. One side has a block wall which is partially below grade and the opposite side is a frame wall above grade. The WaterGuard System on the block wall and the below grade flashing on the exterior of the foundation on the opposite wall solved the problems of water entering at the juncture of the floor and walls. The trench drain, out 24" in front of the overhead garage doors, solved a problem of water accumulating in a low area and running in at the corners of the garage doors when closed. Your crew, led by Nick Wolf, did a very professional job. They were diligent, conscientious and receptive to my strive for perfection. Everything was cleaned up at the end of the two days and was left very neat when the job was finished. Those fellows are keepers.  I can very highly recommend your solution to solving water problems. The success of your system was proven last night when we had a very heavy deluge of rain and no water appeared on the garage floor. Thank you, Jack F.

Thank you for a great job. It exceeded all of my expectations. My satisfaction with the work is due in large part to the project's foreman - Gage - and his team. Gage exhibited the highest degree of technical expertise and professionalism. It was a pleasure to work with him! Thank you.
