Ginger has a list of all the renovations and landscaping that she wants to do to her home. She figured it was best to start with some projects in her basement like waterproofing and adding an egress window. We installed an Egress Window for a safe exit in case of emergencies and to let natural light into the space. To waterproof we used the WaterGuard drain system to collect water that seeps into the basement and the SuperSump which is a great sump pump for basements that have occasional water issues. We added the battery back up system to the sump pump in case the home lost power or the system got unplugged accidentally. We also installed BrightWall Basement Panels to keep out water vapor, humidity, and mold growth.

Mike and Dee wanted to seal out any moisture that was potentially intruding in their home. Moist air can lead to many more serious problems such as compromising the foundation and contributing to allergens and things that decrease the air quality of the home. To help with this, our team came out and installed CleanSpace, pictured here, and the SaniDry Sedona dehumidifier. The SaniDry Sedona is more powerful than any other dehumidifier and drains automatically so you don't have to worry about emptying the water yourself. It will control the humidity and make sure to stop mold growth, kill dust mites, and make your whole home healthier. Clean space is an uninterrupted vapor barrier designed to keep out any unwanted pests, moisture, and mold. This barrier restricts airflow and therefore makes controlling the temperature of the home much easier. CleanSpace is applied to the floors and walls and wrapped around pillars and piers carefully to ensure that the space looks clean and refreshed. Now there are no worries of any moisture in the space or in the air. Mike and Dee are protected from any and all intrusions.

After her husband passed away last Fall, Jane knew she must seek an alternate solution to fixing her wet crawlspace. Jane began noticing that her floors were abnormally cold temperatures and were not improving when the heat was turned on inside the home. 

 

Once arriving onsite, the crew noticed high humidity levels within Jane’s crawlspace over 80% and small signs of mold beginning to form. The crew encapsulated the crawlspace with our resilient liner, CleanSpace®, preventing water vapor and humidity from passing through. By encapsulating her crawlspace, Jane has protected her home from future mold and rot and can enjoy much warmer floors inside.

Job Stories From Bay County, MI
Encapsulating an Auburn MI Crawl Space

Timothy wanted his house to be as energy efficient as possible which meant his crawl space being encapsulated. We installed the CleanSpace Crawl Space Vapor Barrier which prevents water vapor and humidity from passing through.  It protects your structure and insulation from mold and rot by keeping the space dry. The barrier also makes the crawl space an inhospitable environment to pests and the white plastic deters mice and rats. Lastly by sealing the crawl space, you keep the summer heat out of your home and the winter cold away from your furnace, water heater, and other utilities.

 

Leaky Basement Solutions in Kawkawli MI

Eric had water coming in where the wall and floor meet in the basement of his home. The basement is finished, the sump pump had failed, and he couldn't find a company to come out and take a look at the issue due to the poured foam foundation he has. We were happy to help and had a solution for the water coming in. We installed the WaterGuard system which is a French drain that collects water that seeps in through the walls and drains it to the sump pump. This drain system is installed under the floor but above the foundation to keep it out of the 'mud zone' where the drain could clog. The WaterGuard installs quickly and has a clean finished appearance plus it works for both block walls and poured concrete, ensuring that your basement remains dry in all situations. Since the sump pump that was there was not working, we installed the TripleSafe Sump Pump system which provides three levels of protection in case of a pump malfunction or a power outage and gives the home owner peace of mind that their basement will remain dry. Lastly, we installed the SaniDry XP, a dehumidifier with a powerful blowing motor that keeps dry air circulating throughout the space to dry it out. It can easily be stored in a corner or closet so it doesn't interfere with a finished basement.

Sealing out any Moisture in a Bently, MI Crawl Space

Mike and Dee were looking to get their crawl space sealed off and insulated. This is important especially in a crawl space with a dirt floor so that moisture doesn’t threaten to compromise the home’s foundation. Our team came out and installed SaniDry Sedona and CleanSpace to keep the moisture out.

Clean space is an uninterrupted vapor barrier designed to keep out any unwanted pests, moisture, and mold. This barrier restricts airflow and therefore makes controlling the temperature of the home much easier. CleanSpace is applied to the floors and walls and wrapped around pillars and piers carefully to ensure that the space looks clean and refreshed.The SaniDry Sedona is more powerful than any other dehumidifier and drains automatically so you don't have to worry about emptying the water yourself. It will control the humidity and make sure to stop mold growth, kill dust mites, and make your whole house healthier. 

Moisture will no longer be an issue for Mike and Dee and their dirt floor crawl space will have an updated look and floor so they might even be able to use it for storage.

Basement Flooding Nightmares Put to Rest

Anthony and Angela are in their dream home but are having nightmares that the home will flood due to a sump pump that does not work properly. We put their minds at ease when we installed the TripeSafe Sump Pump system. This sump pump has three levels of protection and will keep the water out even if there is a pump malfunction or a power outage!

Waterproofing Is Just the Start of Renovations for This Essexville Home

Ginger is doing some renovations to her house and wants to add some landscaping. She has a lot of projects on her list but knew that waterproofing and adding an egress window should be some of the first things to get done.

We installed an Egress Window so there was a safe exit in the basement. The large sized window and the stairs in the window well allow for ease and safety in the event of emergencies. The window, being larger in size, also allows for more natural light to enter the space making it look larger and more inviting. 

We then got to waterproofing her basement to keep the water out and the space usable. We installed the WaterGuard which is a French drain that goes under the floor so you do not have an unsightly drain in the basement. It collects the water the seeps into the space and sends it to the sump pump. Ginger did not have a sump pump so we installed the SuperSump sump pump system which is an ideal solution if you have some water intrusion but not severe flooding. We also added the UltraSump Battery Back Up System which keeps the sump pump removing water even if the weather knocks out the power or if the main system gets unplugged. Lastly, we installed BrightWall Basement Panels which is a rigid plastic sheet that is attached to the basement walls. This system is waterproof, washable, and creates a vapor barrier for your basement to keep out water vapor or humidity. By keeping the basement dry and moisture free,  you are protecting it from mold growth and rot. The best part is that the white color of the sheets mixed with all the natural light from the egress create a clean, cheerful looking space!

Settling Happens Quick in Bay City, MI

Ronald built his house in 2017 and started to notice that the garage floor was settling. He was shocked because his house is practically brand new and has not incurred the same wear and tear of an older home. Settling can happen quickly, especially if the home was built on unstable soil and then experienced the quickly changing Michigan weather. To make sure his home stays settled and looking brand new, our team came out and installed PolyLevel.

PolyLevel injections are designed to fix sinking and cracking concrete slabs by bringing them back to their original level. This is achieved by using polyurethane foam. The foam expands and has a high density in order to raise the concrete. The process is simple and done by drilling small holes into the concrete and then inserting the foam into the holes. The foam is completely waterproof, minimally invasive, and lasts forever. Now Ronalds garage is stable and safe from cracking. 

 

SmartJacks Prevent Collapse in Bay City, MI

Steve noticed his main floor was starting to sag and he was getting concerned about the stability of his foundation. To prevent collapse, our team came out and installed SmartJacks. SmartJacks support sagging floor joists and beams.  Floors above basements and crawl spaces are vulnerable due to the damp nature of the lowest floor. The SmartJack system is a permanent fix to these issues. It uses steel columns, threaded rods, and a solid base to address any problems your basement may have. Installing this system usually takes less than a day and it provides immediate stabilization. Now Steve can be confident in the integrity of his home and not worry about potential collapse or further weakening of his floor.

Preemptive Care of a Kawkawlin Basement

Jane is a responsible homeowner that takes pride in her home. Not wanting to take any risks she contacted Ayers to inspect her home. Our foreman Evan inspected the area, seeing a working pump and foundational walls in great condition. Speaking with Jane, Evan recommended encapsulating the crawl space to better protect it from possible moisture damage.

 

Evan and his team installed a CleanSpace lining to help add an extra layer of protection to the home. CleanSpace is an antimicrobial lining that covers every surface of the crawlspace. It proved a strong barrier between the supportive framework and possible water damage if any moister is inside the home.

Installing an Egress Window

Dan just purchased this home last Fall and is concerned with the stability of the foundation walls. He wants the peace of mind to know that they are stable and that nothing will happen. He plans to stay here there for at least a decade. Being a straight shooter, Dan just wanted to know everything upfront and our foreman Blade was happy to comply when he performed his initial inspection.

 

Blade prescribed a Geolock anchor and fulfilled Dan's request to install an egress window.

 

GeoLock is installed by excavating the earth on a cracked wall and installing a mental anchor held in place by steel drives. On the opposite side, inside the home, is a steel plate that is placed on top of the wall and is screwed into the wall. A bolt is tightened till the entire apparatus is connected. Geolock pulls the wall into place and holds it there permanently.

 

To fulfill Dan's request, Blade installed an egress window. The windows used by Ayers allow light to enter and keep heat inside the home. They are installed with a floodproof outside base.

Root Damage to a Basement in Bay City

Steve noticed cracks all along his basement wall. The cracks came from a wall growing too close to the home. The tree was dealt with but the home was compromised. Our resident foreman Randy was able to inspect the home and evaluate the extent of the damage. Randy didn't notice damage to the foundation so he prescribed a set of SmartJack piers to restabilize the crawlspace area.

 

SmartJack piers are metal beams placed strategically along the structure's supportive rim joist. The bottoms are anchored into the ground with poured concrete while the tops are capped with load-bearing joints that are attached to the rim joist. The entire pier's height is adjusted till there is constant pressure being applied, reintroducing support to the entire framework.

Stopping a Seasonal Flood

Paul was getting irritated by the regular flooding in his basement. Out of at-home remedies, he contacts Ayers for a professional opinion. Ayers foreman Randy was able to listen to Paul's concerns and inspect the area.

 

There was no water in the home when Randy finished inspecting but knew that this meant the flooding was seasonal. To stop the flooding Randy fitted the drainage system with an IceGuard modification.

 

IceGuard is a modification that attaches to the pipes of the home's sump pump. Without the mod ice can build up when the pump pushes water through the system, risking buildups and ruptures. IceGuard is a simple attachment that requires no energy to function year-round.

Broken Pipes in Need of Repair

Paul noticed water in his home but only during a certain time of year. The water would disappear by Spring, leaving him frustrated when trying to find the source. He contacted Ayers and had our resident foreman Randy inspect the area. Randy noticed that the outlet pipes connected to the sump pump were not equipped to handle frozen water. Randy decided to install and IceGuard modification to better help the home.

 

IceGuard is a modification that attaches to the pipes of the home's sump pump. Without the mod ice can build up when the pump pushes water through the system, risking buildups and ruptures. IceGuard is a simple attachment that requires no energy to function year-round. 

Leveling Concrete in Bay City

Dave was not pleased to see a series of cracks in his home's garage floor. Wanting the job done right, he contacted Ayers.  Our resident foreman Bruce was able to inspect the area and diagnose the problem. Bruce decided the best course of action was to use PolyLevel to even the concrete.

 

PolyLevel is a spray foam polymer that expands and moves under cracked concrete. The polymer is waterproof and levels the ground as it spreads. It is important not to wait because Polylevel can only be sprayed at temperatures above 40 degrees. When Winter comes not much can be done and the weather can make the damage worse. 

Bay City, MI Homeowners Breathe Easier Thanks to CleanSpace

John and Susan getting older and wanted to get a ranch, so they just moved into their new Bay City, MI home. Before they began on any cosmetic home improvement projects, they wanted to get the crawl space checked. Susan has been been smelling something musty and moldy since they moved in and it's been bothering her allergies. They called Ayers for an inspection. Our crew determined that they would first need to clear out major dirt and debris from the crawl space, then install CleanSpace and a SaniDry Sedona Dehumidifier.

CleanSpace Wall System is a moisture barrier that uses a thick plastic liner along basement and crawl space walls to keep them dry and last decades longer. It also has antibacterial properties that prevent mold and bacteria growth.  Damp air takes more energy to heat and cool. Cutting down on the moisture in the crawl space, in turn, will cut down on how much it costs to heat or cool the home. 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.

John and Susan could instantly breathe easier and were overjoyed that the musty smell in the house disappeared. The job went off without a hitch and the couple are thrilled to begin making their new house a home.

Protecting Bay City, MI Basement Against Water

John found water in his basement and wanted a fast solution. He contacted Ayers and had our resident foreman Bruce inspect the area. Evan noticed water damage and drafted a treatment plan.

 

Bruce decided to install a CleanSpace drainage system to better control future water damage and treated the environment with a dehumidifier to strip the moisture out of the air. Finally, he installed an Egress window upon John's request.

Pinconning, MI Home Made New Again with Ayers

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.   

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.   

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.   

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!

GeoLock Wall Anchors Stabilize Bowing Wall in Bay City, MI

Daniel realized his home was having structural issues after noticing one of his foundation walls was bowing. Additionally, it worsened the situation when it rained as the wall swelled and moved more. Daniel decided he wanted to find a permanent solution and contacted Ayers. An inspection of his home determined that GeoLock Wall Anchors would permanently stabilize the foundation! 

 

GeoLock Wall Anchors utilize a three-part system that is proven to stabilize and pull the foundation wall back into place! A load-bearing plate is placed in the ground on the opposing side of the wall where load-bearing soil is met. Then, steel rods are drilled through little holes in the foundation wall until they meet the load-bearing plate. Finally, a low-profile plate is bolted into place on the wall and tightened onto the steel rod. Once the system was installed, the anchors were tightened, stopping the Daniels wall from bowing and will eventually bring it back to its original position!
