If the foundation is settling in the soil under the home, it can no longer support the weight of the house. Once the dirt compresses, it puts pressure on the foundation, causing it to sink into the ground. Foundation settlement can cause issues throughout the house, including cracked, sinking floors.
Cracked or uneven floors in your home may indicate a foundation floor problem. If that is the case, we recommend helical piers, driving them into stable, load-bearing soil to create a solid base to transfer the home's weight onto. This adjustable system restores the home to its original position, closing cracks, and providing long-term support.

A finished basement adds living space to a home and creates endless possibilities for what you can do with that area. But with that new space comes the need for security, especially in Michigan. In 2015 the state required egress windows in basements with bedrooms, mandating at least one exit point in these areas. These egress windows need to be professionally installed and comply with specific criteria.
And while Battle Creek homes require egress windows in these spaces, they are also a beautiful source of natural light and make a stunning addition to any basement. But a faulty installation can come with wood rot, leaking, and other nasty, wet basement problems. That also means you will need an egress window installation done right to ensure beautiful and secure results.
Ayers Basement Systems has been your trusted basement waterproofing company since 1981. So we have the time-tested skill, patented products, and reliable service to ensure a stress-free egress window installation that creates a beautiful, safe basement and brings your home up to code!

WaterGuard Restores Battle Creek, MI Basement
The customer called us after they had cut out the edges of their concrete floor in an attempt to solve their basement water problem. This...did not work. This is mostly because even if the water has dirt (vs. concrete) to sink into, you still have wet ground in your basement.
We installed the WaterGuard below floor drainage system and a TripleSafe sump pump and not only does the water drain, the homeowners even have real floors!

This beautiful basement in Battle Creek, MI received new flooring that can withstand moisture and mold. ThermalDry flooring is the only inorganic subfloor in the world, and was the perfect option for this basement which was experiencing moisture throughout. ThermalDry comes in tiles that are slightly raised off of the floor, allowing the floor to breathe. Water vapor won’t get trapped in the flooring, and if there is a leak, it can easily be dried without having to rip up the entire floor!
Unleveled Patio Fixed With PolyLevel in Battle Creek, MI
Jamie F. called because she wanted to get her sunken & unleveled concrete patio fixed. Our team of experts visited her home and decided to install the PolyLEVEL system that easily repairs sinking concrete. The system uses lightweight polymers that raise concrete slabs back to their original position. A few small, penny sized holes were drilled into the patio slab and then filled with polymers that expand to lift the patio. PolyLEVEL also only has a 15 minute cure time and the polymers are waterproof!
