Basement Waterproofing Photo Album: Pinconning, MI Stabilization and Waterproofing Solution
Tim's Pinconning, MI home was built in 1945. It had previously belonged to his mother since the 70s. Years ago, a cement trucked parked right next to the house, cracking areas of the foundation. Since then, the cracks have only gotten worse, forming a major stair-step crack throughout the basement. Water comes though whenever it rains and Tim has to be in the basement with a shop-vac for hours cleaning up the mess.
Tim was looking for peace of mind regarding the home that protected him and his family for years, so he called Ayers Basement Systems. Our crew came out for an inspection and determined Tim would need CarbonArmor to stabilize the foundation, and WaterGuard and CleanSpace to combat the water coming in.
With all of these products combined, Tim is ensured a safe, dry, and sturdy home for years to come. He was thrilled with the professionalism of the crew and great communication throughout the project. He can't wait to start making new memories in his mother's old house!
Stair-Step Cracks - Before
Tim's home was full of these stair-step cracks along the basement walls. Each one let water into the home, flooding the basement every time it rained.
CarbonArmor is a flexible, fabric like epoxy that is 10x stronger than steel. The epoxy adheres to your basement walls and penetrates into the surface to reinforce and stabilize the foundation.
During WaterGuard Installation
WaterGuard is a sub-floor waterproofing system that collects water that leaks through basement 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.
CleanSpace Wall System is a moisture barrier that uses a thick plastic liner along basement walls to keep them dry and last decades longer. It also has antibacterial properties that prevent mold and bacteria growth.
