Testimonials for Ayers Basement Systems

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.

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.

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 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 crew foreman, Josh Case, was outstanding. Floor drains were installed in my garage and driveway, and I could not more pleased with the work of Josh and his crew! As no drains existed when I purchased the home, it looks like they were always there! Excellent work!

I didn't even look anywhere else. Before the rep, Keith Bond, arrived, I had received an introductory packet with his bio and photograph as well as literature explaining the various processes the company uses, so I was prepared when the rep arrived to discuss my nees. After reviewing the packet and speaking with him, I had no doubts htis was the company to use. They wre very well organized and professional. The installation crew definitely "wowed" me. Doug, Gage, Jordan, and Josh: you guys did a wonderful job! Thank you! If I decide to have addtional work done in the future or hear of anyone that does, I would definitely recommend your crew.

I wanted to send you a quick note regarding the basement system repair that was done in our home last week by your Service Technician, Marty Strobel. I must tell you that in all of the years of being a homeowner and having work done in our home, I have never encountered such a conscientious individual.  The work that he did was outstanding and he left the area completely cleaned up!  All too often it seems that people are quick to criticize work done, but not take the time to provide positive feedback to the Company for exemplary work performed.  You have an outstanding employee in Marty and it was a pleasure meeting  him.

The crew, Logan, Nelson and Alex and project manager Ty arrived at 9:00am. I was told they would arrive between 9-10am. Ty asked to see the area and reviewed rooms where vents were to be placed. Ty and the crew then covered the steps and floor in the basement with plastic. I appreciated Ty asking me if I had a preference on lower or higher placement of the vent at the bottom of the stairs. The crew was very efficient they cleaned up and swept after installation. Ty and the crew were very polite and professional. Ty reviewed how the dehumidifier works and took the time to answer other non related questions I had. Very good experience.

Terry Ortez and his team, Bruce D and Kyle D, did an amazing job on our basement. They went above and behind expectation, adding some grading to some low spots in the yard and repairing some foundation problems that were unexpected at no additional charge. Very appreciative of this team and their efficiency. They did an entire front wrap of the house in a few hours. We're very impressed and would not hesitate to contact Ayers for any future basement issues. Thanks; Terry, Bruce, and Kyle!

Jim was very kind and informative. The two reasons for selecting Ayers Basement Systems was trust worthiness of representative, not pushy, not a know-it all, helpful. Representative selling and talking up your product not insulting other systems was great. Jim explained everything nicely. Jessie and Josh worked very hard both days. Never took a break. Were conscientious about everything, explained everything they were doing. Very happy with the service and my dry basement!

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
