Ayers Turns Wet Unusable Kalamazoo, MI Room Into Beautiful Workout Space

Umar and Tanya have lived in their Kalamazoo, MI home for 38 years. They’ve had a little room in the basement that was unfinished and showing signs of water intrusion. During heavy rains the water even seeps into the rest of the basement. Tanya has been wanting to turn the space into an exercise room for years, so they called Ayers for an inspection. Our crew determined the couple would need WaterGuard, a TripleSafe sump pump, and the SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier to deal with the water intrusion, and BrightWall paneling and Elite Plank wood flooring to fix the cosmetics of the room. 

WaterGuard is a sub-floor waterproofing system that collects water that leaks through the walls and keeps dirt away from the foundation. It is installed along the perimeter of the basement and on top of the footing of the foundation. Concrete is poured on top and regular flooring can be placed on top. The TripleSafe Sump Pump system utilizes three pumps in order to remove excess water from the basement. The second and third pumps are in case of emergencies so the basement can remain dry, even when the power goes out. The SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier automatically removes up to 100 pints of water a day from the air in the home’s basement. This system circulates the now dry air through the basement and automatically removes the leftover water so you don’t have to. 

To make the room look nice for Umar and Tanya’s exercise room, we installed BrightWall and Elite Plank wood flooring. BrightWall is the perfect solution for those who want to combine beauty and practicality in one. It is a rigid plastic covering that is completely waterproof and made of inorganic materials. This keeps the walls from becoming waterlogged and moldy like wood. The bright white panels reflect the light, maximizing lighting in the basement. Elite Plank wood flooring mimics hardwood with the added benefit of being waterproof as well as keeping the floor a few degrees warmer than the typical concrete and carpet combination. The Elite Plank flooring is perfect for Tanya’s gym because the waterproofing means the couple can sweat and spill a water bottle without and consequences. 

Umar and Tanya were ecstatic to finally be able to get the basement completely waterproofed, and cannot want to start using the new space as an in-home gym!
