Byron Center, MI Basment Gets a Replacement Egress Window

Byron Center, MI Basment Gets a Replacement Egress Window

Before After
Byron Center, MI Basment Gets a Replacement Egress Window Byron Center, MI Basment Gets a Replacement Egress Window

After recently purchasing a house in Byron Center, MI, this homeowner was eager to get started on home improvements. The basement didn’t need too much work, as it was just finished. But the owner was interested in changing up the natural light of the basement. The block window just didn’t fit the look he was going for in the basement. We knew exactly what he meant and sent out a system design specialist to draw out a plan for a replacement egress window. After going over the possible options, the owner elected to add in an egress window just a few feet away from the rectangular block window, as you can see when comparing the two photos. The big difference between the two is that the 4-foot-tall egress window is below ground level. And thanks to the waterproof material of the well, the window will remain protected from floods or eroding, while allowing in more light than the previous.

Concrete Leveling with PolyLevel® and Mudjacking Services

Uneven or sinking steps, driveways, garage floors, walkways and more create a dangerous falling hazard to anyone uses them. They are also unappealing and lower your home's image and value. We at Ayers Basement Systems of Michigan & Indiana offer proven solutions to your concrete leveling and lifting needs and guarantee repairs that are simple, non-invasive and durable.

Trust our PolyLevel® solution -- the easy-to-apply, quick-drying polymer solution is incredibly durable, meaning regardless of rain, wind, sleet or snow, your PolyLevel® solution won't wash away!

How PolyLevel® works:

  • One of our crew drills small holes into the concrete slab.
  • A polymer solution is injected into the empty space beneath.
  • The solution expands, filling the space & stabilizing the slab.

For larger, heavier concrete structures, we offer our tough mud jacking and slab jacking services that are perfect when used with slab piers. We begin by pumping a mortar-based mixture of water, soil, sand and Portland cement is under the slab. As the mixture is pumped underneath, it fills the empty space, stabilizing the slab. As the mixture hardens into a solid it becomes more secure than soil and lighter than concrete.

Make sure you call the experts at Ayers Basement Systems of Michigan & Indiana for all your mudjacking or slabjacking needs. While mudjacking can be incredibly effective, when it is done wrong and without the right corresponding materials, it will ultimately fail. Our structural experts have the knowledge, the materials and the drive to assure a successful and durable mud jacking!

Job Stories From Byron Center, MI
Sealing Off Byron Center, MI Wall Crack With FlexiSpan

James H. contacted us because he wanted to get his cracked basement wall repaired. The crack was the full height of the wall and was allowing water to enter.

The FlexiSpan wall system was installed to repair the crack and prevent water from entering. We started by removing a small section of the flooring at the base of the crack in order to install a drainage pipe to collect and discard any water that was still able to enter through the crack after being sealed. We then sealed the crack with FlexiSpan, which is an extremely flexible sealant that moves with the wall to ensure the crack does not expand any further. 

WaterGuard Protects Byron Center, MI Basement From Water Intrusion

This homeowner had water entering her basement and was looking for an effective waterproofing solution. Part of the basement was unfinished and the other part was finished with wall paneling and carpet.

We installed the WaterGuard system to eliminate intruding water automatically. This system included specialized drainage pipes that collected the incoming water and then directed it to the sump pump in the home. We first had to remove the carpeting in the finished space in order to excavate a small section of the flooring around the interior perimeter of the basement. The pipes were placed in the removed flooring and the excess space was filled with crushed stone and topped off with cement fill. Water that entered the wall was directed down into the pipes and then immediately discarded from the home.

The homeowner no longer had to worry about water invading her home.

Wall Anchors Stabilized Retaining Wall in Byron Center, MI

These homeowners had a concrete retaining wall that was slanted and had a large horizontal crack. It was important that the problem was fixed before the wall continued to bow inward and we knew a system that would do just the trick.

We installed the Geo-Lock wall anchor system to help stabilize the wall. Earth anchors were embedded in stable soil outside of the home and attached to the retaining wall with steel wall anchors. The system was tightened and secured into place with steel rods, which immediately stabilized the wall and prevented it from shifting any further. We also installed wall anchor covers to give the walls a sleek look and a tightening kit that can potentially help the wall shift back to its original position over time.

Wall Anchors Stabilize Slanted and Cracked Byron Center, MI Wall

Heather and Michael M. had a concrete retaining wall that was slanting and cracking. He wanted a permanent fix to his problem and we knew the perfect solution. 

To stabilize the wall and prevent it from shifting any further, we installed the Geo-Lock wall anchor system. The installation began with the excavation of soil located outside of the foundation wall. Steel earth anchors were embedded into stable soil and connected to the failing wall with sturdy wall anchors and secured with steel rods. We then tightened the system into place and the wall was immediately held in place and prevented from slanting or cracking any further. We also installed wall anchor covers to restore the look of the wall while providing the homeowners with an effective stabilizing system.

Piers Add Extra Support to Sloping Byron Center, MI Room

Towards the end of the summer last year, Doug noticed that his hanging sunroom was starting to lean. The first clue was a few small cracks on the support beams that held up the outermost part of the room extension. Doug got further confirmation when his neighbor with the same condo design began to notice similar issues. With proof that the beams were sinking, he began talking to every company he could about a solution.  Sadly, once he finally got in contact with Ayers, the winter months were rolling around. Our solution to Doug’s problem would require a soil excavation that can only be done during warmer temperatures. After the ground thawed out and Doug found time for us in his schedule, the crew headed over to Byron Center, MI to straighten out Doug’s room.

The crew decided to repair the leaning room by transferring the support for the structure from the sinking soil to a more stable base. We call this a piering system. The first step was gaining access to the soil underneath the support beams. Once the crew excavated the soil around the beams, they got to work on providing the beams with a new base. Two piers were forced deep into the ground until they reached stable and trustworthy soil. With the piers stabilized and at no risk of sinking deeper, the crew attached the support beams to the top of the piers and backfilled the soil around them. The sunroom’s support beams are now dependent on the piers, which in turn are relying on stronger soil that won’t give into the weight of the structure. After seeing the room return to its original and leveled position, Doug was thrilled. In fact, he was so happy with the work that he immediately recommended our services to his neighbors who were dealing the same issue.

Installing an Egress Window in Byron Center, MI

Our customer called having purchased a new house - yay! - with a finished basement - yay! - that didn't have egress windows. Booooo.

Finished basements are great, but if you ever want to turn them into anything other than a rec room, and sometimes even if it’s just a rec room, it’s important to install at least one egress window.

Egress windows are mandated by fire code if the basement is a bedroom or any other kind of dwelling (i.e. an apartment) because they create an escape route.

It’s also important to have a below-grade contractor - like Ayers - install them, because once you start cutting out parts of the foundation and digging around, there are very specific methods that prevent your house from developing a ton of new problems.

We installed a gorgeous new egress window to let in light and provide an exit point if necessary.
