FlexiSpan Repairs Vertical Cracks in Albion, MI

FlexiSpan Repairs Vertical Cracks in Albion, MI FlexiSpan Repairs Vertical Cracks in Albion, MI

The homeowners in Albion, MI had a vertical crack on one of their basement walls going from ceiling to floor. When it rained, water would leak through the crack, get into their basement, and puddle on the floor. Foundation wall cracks can be a sign of structural issues so it is best to get the crack repaired right when you notice it is there to prevent serious, more costly damage. 

To fix this vertical wall crack, our professional team installed FlexiSpan. FlexiSpan is a three part process beginning with flexible sealant being applied along the length of the crack. The second step is to put a a strip of flexible and porous foam over the crack. Lastly, an impermeable membrane is adhered to the wall on both sides of the foam strip. FlexiSpan invisibly moves water seepage from the crack down the wall and into the basements perimeter drainage system. The FlexiSpan system is not affected by slight movements in the basement wall meaning it works under all conditions. 

In the before picture you can see the vertical cracking on the basement wall and in the after picture you can see the FlexiSpan installed over the crack and fixing the wall.

Looking to totally seal his crawl space, Kyle called our team. So in order to prevent air flow from his crawl space to the rest of his home, our team insulated his rim joists. Small cracks and seams can exist around rim joists, but after insulating them all of those cracks are sealed off. With airtight insulation there is a reduction in heat loss.

These Albion homeowners have had this home for about 3 weeks and have noticed there is water in one of the rooms in the basement. The partially finished basement has even had some standing water in the room where the water is leaking in. To waterproof the home we used the WaterGuard Below Floor Drain and the TripleSafe Sump Pump System. The WaterGuard collects the water that seeps in through the foundation and sends it to the sump pump. The TripleSafe provides three levels of protection in case of a power outage and gives the homeowners a peace of mind.

Job Stories From Albion, MI
Leveling the Ground in Albion, MI

Todd noticed that parts of his home were sinking into the ground. First noticing his chimney detach from the home, he contacted Ayers to stop the progress.


Our foreman Blade was able to inspect the area and discovered that the home's foundation was settling. To correct the foundation Blade and his team installed a set of Helical Piers.


Helical Piers are a tool trusted by Ayers due to their non-intrusive nature compared to other foundational repair systems. The piers are long screw-shaped drives that are driven deep under the home at an angle. The drives keep going till they pass the weak soil and find new firm ground. The tops of the piers are capped with load-bearing caps that provide a flat surface for the home to rest upon. 

SuperSump Keeps Wet Albion, MI Basement Dry

Joyce H. contacted us because she had water entering her home that caused mold to grow. The basement was finished and she had to take down the paneling due to water damage. She wanted the issue taken care of before the problem caused any more damage to her home.

We first installed the SuperSump sump pump system that is both an effective and economical solution that ensured the basement would no longer have to deal with unwanted water. The system included a powerful Zoeller pump and sturdy liner that easily collected and discarded water from the basement.

Next we installed the IceGuard system on the home’s discharge lines. This system was connected directly on the lines and had multiple large holes that water was able to exit through in case the lines became frozen. Without a way to discard water from the sump pump, it would re-enter the home and cause a flood. Lastly, we installed the LawnScape outlet on the end of discharge lines that exited water from sump pump far away from the home.

PowerBraces Stabilized Cracked Foundation Wall in Albion, MI

Mary D. had cracks in her block foundation wall that she wanted to address. There were both horizontal and stair-step cracks that she attempted to repair in the past, but they continued to get worse over time.

We decided to install the PowerBrace system to stabilize the wall and prevent them from cracking any further. For this installation we used galvanized steel columns that were placed in the ground at the base of the wall and then connected to the joists above the wall. The braces were secured into place with steel brackets and tightened into place to immediately hold the wall in place. The braces had a zinc coating to prevent corrosion and can be tightened over time to completely shift the wall to its proper position.

Keeping Albion, MI Basement Dry With UltraSump and SaniDry Systems

These homeowners had water leaking into the basement that resulted in them having to tare down the drywall while they tried to dry out the area. They wanted to address the leak and moisture issues in the basement before replacing the drywall.

We decided to install the UltraSump system to the existing sump pump in the home. This system included a battery backup that automatically powers up if the power goes out, which ensured the home would always be safe from intruding water. The system also included an alarm that sounds when the back-up pump is running and stops when the power turns back on.

Next, we installed a SaniDry XP dehumidifier to remove moisture from the air. As the systems collects the damp air and wrings it of any moisture, it is then filtered of any unwanted particles and then distributed throughout the basement. Water that is collected in the dehumidifier is automatically drained into the home’s sump pump, meaning the homeowner never has to empty a heavy bucket of water.

Settled Albion, MI Sidewalk and Driveway Lifted With PolyLevel

This homeowner called because the sidewalk leading to her home was sinking and she wanted it leveled before it began to crack and break. Her driveway was also sinking toward the house and had already begun to crack in several areas.

In order to level the driveway and the sidewalk, we used the PolyLevel system. The slabs of concrete originally sank because the soil beneath it was no longer able to support the heavy weight above it. Luckily, PolyLevel uses lightweight and high-density polymers that lift the slab and address the problem soils at the same time. We first had to drill multiple small holes throughout the slab, deep enough to reach stable soil. The holes were then filled with the polymers that expanded to immediately raise the concrete and will prevent if from settling again over time. 

To deal with the cracks in the driveway, we caulked each of them with NexusPro joint sealer that prevents them from shifting any further.

I am looking to tear out a small room in my basement, and have the full area finished (instead of having just 1 finished room). I am interested in your shotcrete and then Brightwall Basement Wall Panels. I also may need some support repairs to the basement foundation walls. While I dont have any standing water or leaking (that's known), I would also be interested in any water proofing recommendations to ensure your panels last.

I have some concerns with the foundation of my house. I have some water coming in, but also I have some concerns with the supports in the basement.
