Crawlspace foundation in Coldwater needs a lift

Pam & Joe R. came to Ayers with the concern of sinking floors and possibly encapsulating their crawlspace. We did their neighbors crawlspace and that peeked their interest in hiring us. After a thorough inspection, it was decided that SmartJacks were the best solution to the sinking floors. In the end they installed, Drainage Matting, CleanSpace, and a SaniDry to ensure total dryness. 

Pam & Joe were very happy with their crawlspace ugrade!

Slab Piers Provide Extra Support for Quincy, MI Garage Floor

When Jerry’s garage was first built, the contractors pretty much did it by the book. They placed support pilings underneath the perimeter of the foundation and expected them to stabilize the structure. Unfortunately, Mother Nature and gravity had other plans. The foundation was holding together fine, but after some time passed, other problems started to show - primarily, the unsupported middle of the garage was sinking. Jerry was certain that he could repair it himself and got right to work, removing the garage floor to better analyze the problem. With the floor gone, he could see exactly what happened. The soil had indeed settled and even left a 3-foot drop between it and where the concrete floor had originally been. Jerry’s plan was to just replace the slab, but with the floor removed, he could see that he needed a solution that would address the root problem.

Our system design specialist took a trip out to Quincy, MI to explain the different options. Since he planned on pouring the floor himself, all Jerry needed from us was a stable support system for the future slab. The design specialist suggested our Slab Pier System. Slab piers are capable of stabilizing and lifting settled slabs from underneath, so they were perfect for Jerry’s situation. Since the design specialist had already determined the pier placement that would best support the floor, the crew’s first step was forcing the 3 piers into deep, dependable soil. They then raised the piers to a leveled height and backfilled the voids caused by driving in the piers. With the piers in place, Jerry now has the all the support he needs for a new slab. Once he pours in the concrete, his garage will be better than ever.

PolyLevel Saves Cracked and Settled Bronson, MI Library Steps

This Bronson, MI library had an unleveled, cracked walkway and steps leading to the entrance that was causing concern for the city. Not only was the issue an eyesore for the public building, it was also a safety concern for people entering the library.

In order to level the stairs we used the effective PolyLevel system. This system uses high-density, lightweight polymers to lift the sinking slab. The installation begins with our team strategically drilling small holes into the concrete in order to inject the polymers. We then filled the holes with the polymers, which expanded to lift and stabilize the slab. Next we used NexusPro joint sealer to seal the cracks and prevent them from shifting in the future. This installation was fast and efficient in order to ensure the library-goers minimal disruption.

Sinking Backyard Slabs Fixed With PolyLevel in Coldwater, MI

Barbra L. called because slabs outside of her home were sinking. The home was built on a hill with a walk out and there were concrete slabs that take you down level by level with stairs attached. The slabs were sinking and caused the stairs to separate from the concrete wall.

To lift the slabs permanently and fix the cracks we installed the PolyLevel system and NexusPro joint sealer. For the PolyLevel installation we drilled several penny-sized holes in strategic areas on the sinking slabs. Next we filled the holes with lightweight, high-density polymers that expanded to lift the slab. Often times, slabs sink due to weak soils that could no longer hold the weight of the slabs and anything else on top of them. The polymers were injected past weak soils and are light enough that extra weight will not affect the soil and cause the slab to sink once again. 

Several cracks had formed due to the settlement of the slab. In order to seal the cracks and prevent them from shifting any further, we used NexusPro joint sealer that we filled each of the cracks with. 

Barbra will no longer have to be concerned about the condition of her slabs and can enjoy her outdoor space without worry.

Bronson, MI Church Combats Bowing Wall With Geo-Lock Wall Anchors

This Bronson, MI church had an engineer look at their cracked and bowed wall to see what needed to be done to make sure it was up to code. The issue was on the addition that was added on the church in the 60’s and there were some cracks on the inside, but most of them were on the outside. They had water issues in the past that were taken care of, but the bowed wall needed to be stabilized before the problem got worse. 

To fix the wall and prevent it from shifting any further we installed the Geo-Lock wall anchor system that uses steel anchors to completely stabilize a failing wall. The first step was the removal of soil outside of the failing church wall to place a steel earth anchor. The earth anchor was placed far enough under the ground to reach stable soil that will hold the wall in place. That anchor was then connected to the wall with a steel wall anchor and secured into place with steel rods. We tightened the system and the wall was completely stabilized. The wall may be able to shift back to its original position by tightening the system during dry periods when the soil shrinks. We also installed wall anchor covers to create a clean finish in the building. 

Quincy, MI Home Has WaterGuard Installed for Wet Basement

John N. of Quincy, MI had a bad leak in his basement. There was a crack in the wall that was allowing for water to leak in and make his basement wet. 

Our fix? The WaterGuard French drain system. WaterGuard rests below the basement floor and above the foundation footing, collecting the water that seeps into the basement from the exterior. After the water is collected, it is then redirected to the basement's sump pump. 

Leaky basement? Please.

PolyLevel System Stabilized Settled Sidewalk in Coldwater, MI

Mike S. owned a cottage in Coldwater, Michigan with a sidewalk that was sloping toward the house. There were no cracks found at the time, but the homeowner wanted the problem fixed before the sidewalk continued to settle.

The PolyLevel system was installed to level the sidewalk and prevent it from settling again in the future. We started the installation by drilling several penny-sized holes in the sidewalk. The holes were then filled with specialized polymers that expanded to lift the concrete back to its original position. The polymers are extremely lightweight, which addressed the weak soil issue that caused the sidewalk to settle in the first place, so the homeowner didn’t have to worry about it sinking again in the future.

PowerBraces Stabilized Bowed Basement Wall in Coldwater, MI

This customer called because the west wall in his basement was bowing inward. The home was a rental property that was vacant at the time but also up for sale, so homeowner wanted the issue fixed for prospective buyers.

To stabilize the wall, we installed the PowerBrace system. We first needed to reinforce the joists above the wall before the system was put into place. This reinforcement method alleviated some of the pressure on the wall to prevent it from bowing any further. Next we installed the powerful, galvanized steel columns directly onto the failing wall. One end of the column was installed in the flooring at the base of the wall and the other end connected to the reinforced joist above. The system was tightened and secured into place with steel brackets, which completely stabilized the wall.

SentrySeal Applied to Cracked Basement Wall in Coldwater, MI

This Coldwater, MI home had water entering in one corner of the basement at the cove. He re-routed his down spout and said it helped a little, but the problem still continued.

Our team of experts decided to install the SentrySeal system to prevent water from entering the home through an exterior foundation crack. For this installation we had to excavate the landscaping outside of the problem wall in order to apply the seal on the outer side of the wall. Once the soil was removed, we applied the SentrySeal membrane onto the wall, which ensured water was unable to enter the home. The soil was back filled and the homeowner no longer had to worry about a wet basement. 

Leveling Out Settled Driveway, Porches and Sidewalk in Coldwater, MI

This Coldwater, MI home had several concrete slabs outside of the home that were unleveled due to settlement. The home’s driveway, front and back porches and the sidewalk leading up to the home were all sinking and in need of a proper stabilization system.

We installed the PolyLevel system to stabilize and level the slabs. We first drilled multiple small holes in pre-determined areas on the slabs. Those holes were then injected with specialized polymers that combatted the weak soil issue below the concrete that initially caused the areas to sink. The polymers expanded to lift and level out the concrete slabs, while ensuring full stabilization support.

Preparing for Spring with Egress Windows

Springtime is quickly approaching and with the well anticipated season comes dust, pollen and allergies. However for those dreading the spring, you no longer have to. At Ayers Basement Systems our goal is to help make your home a comfortable environment for years to come. 

According to the Environmental Protection Agency there are three key ways to improve indoor air quality: 

        1. Ventilate your indoor areas

        2. Utilize air filtration systems

        3. Cease contact with airborne allergens

The client's old windows provided minimal insulation and allowed outside to enter their home. Our heavy duty egress windows prevent pollen from entering your home keeping it pollen-free. To ensure constant clean air, consider our waterproofing services as well.

Waterproofing Basements in Bronson, MI

Rick and Amy are trying to finish their basement, but they keep encountering water leakage issues. They called our team and asked us to waterproof their basement, so we installed WaterGuard, TripleSafe, and IceGuard. The WaterGuard system catches any leakage from higher walls and floors. TripleSafe is a sump pump system with three pumps so that it can handle the highest pumping demands. In addition one pump is battery powered, so they won't need to worry about their basement flooding during power outages. Lastly, the IceGuard Sump Pump Discharge Line System allows water to leave even when it is frozen. Therefore no matter what weather their house encounters, Rick and Amy won’t need to worry about water intrusion.

Encapsulating Crawl Spaces in Coldwater, MI

Ted just bought a new cottage and started noticing a musty smell coming from his crawl space, so he called our team. We installed CleanSpace and we insulated his rim joists. CleanSpace is a plastic sheet material used as a vapor barrier to restrict all moisture, outside air, and pests from entering your crawl space. Not only does this system create an energy-efficient crawl space, but it also gives your crawl space a clean finish. Cracks exist around most rim joists, so insulating them seals off all of these cracks. Now air and water vapor can no longer seep into or out of the crawl space.
