Downspout Extension Takes Water Away from Cadillac, Mi

Not every waterproofing project requires a full basement system. This Cadillac, MI home was the perfect example of that. Thanks to the slope of the hill that the house was built on, rainwater and thawing snow would regularly flow down to the concrete slab outside of this walkout basement. Since the foundation was already exposed, it was easy for water to end up inside the basement and puddle in the corners nearest to the downspouts.

Our system design specialist came up with a solution to catch and dispose of the water before it had a chance to threaten the basement. First, a TrenchDrain was added next to the concrete slab to catch any water that the gutter missed. Then, by extending the gutter downspouts and connecting them to a LawnScape outlet at the bottom of the slope, the crew was able to push water away from the house and foundation. The drain was connected to the same line as the downspouts for discharge. In the after photo, you can see the entire new system before the crew buried the lines.

This home was built near a lake and the customer wanted to protect their crawl space. The customer called in our team of experts to encapsulate and transform his crawl space. We installed CleanSpace and our SmartSump sump pump. The combination of these products ensures water and moisture do not seep in through the dirt floor or poured concrete walls and is pumped out immediately.

Most people don't want to go in their crawl space because's gross.  A lot of crawl spaces tend to be neglected because they are not something homeowners particularly like to visit on a daily basis.  Apart from looking gross, they can also house a lot of critters as well.  Upgrading your crawl space will not only help to displace those critters and make the space look better, but it will also help to keep your house seperated from the humidity that comes from the ground.  Paired with our SaniDry Sedona, humidity from the crawl space will cease to exist and you can start seeing energy savings as well as stopping any mold or dust mites that might be looming around the corner.

Basement Waterproofing & Crawl Space Repair

Water or moisture below your Cadillac home, whether in a basement or crawl space brings the same results, mold and rot.

Over time, mold and rot can permanently damage your home. Your basement or crawl space will become an unfriendly, unhealthy hazard. We prevent water and moisture from ever causing problems in these areas with proper waterproofing and encapsulation.

We Fix:

  • Wet Basements
  • Damp or Moldy Crawl Spaces
  • Leaking Wall Cracks
  • High Humidity in the Space
  • Uncomfortable Temperatures

Wet Basement Waterproofing

Ayers Basement Systems is part of the Basement Systems International network of basement & crawl space waterproofers. Our waterproofing crew receives advanced training and access to proven, patented waterproofing products.

We install an interior basement drainage system. The system runs along the perimeter of your basement, hidden beneath the concrete. Any entering water is collected in a drainage channel and runs to a hidden sump pump. The water is pumped outside of your home and away from the foundation. The basement humidity is controlled by an energy-efficient basement dehumidifier we install in your basement. 

Crawl Space Encapsulation

We use a similar system to waterproof and protect crawl spaces in Cadillac. The crawl space is encapsulated and sealed using a thick, vinyl vapor barrier. The vapor barrier is laid on an insulated matting placed on the ground. The crawl space vents are sealed and the entrance is upgraded with a sealable entryway. A crawl space dehumidifier and sump pump are added to finish off the system. Your crawl space is permanently protected from water, moisture and mold. 

Foundation Repair & Concrete Leveling

Foundation issues need to be dealt with efficiently and professionally. If left unabated they will continually grow worse, causing extensive damage.

The good news is that damaged foundations can be repaired and restores. Ayers Basement Systems has permanently repaired the foundations of hundreds of Cadillac homeowners.Foundation Pier System in Cadillac

We Fix:

  • Foundation wall cracks
  • Separating floors
  • Soil issues
  • Bowing walls
  • Sunken concrete slabs

Professional Foundation Repair

If you are dealing with a sinking or settling foundation, our foundation piers are the answer. Depending on the particular challenge facing your home we may use helical piers, push piers, slab piers or helical deck piers to provide the needed support. The installed piers will lift your home back to its original position.

We also fix bowing basement walls with our wall anchor and wall stabilization systems. We can even add additional support with sprayed concrete.  If you have a sinking floor over a crawl space we raise it back to a level position using crawl space support posts. Whatever your home's need, we have the right answer. 

Concrete Lifting Pro in Cadillac

Here in Cadillac, Ayers Basement Systems fixes problems like uneven sidewalks, front steps, porches, driveways and more. Keep tripping over that section of sidewalk? Is your sinking front step driving you crazy and lowering the chances of selling your house? We have a solution for you.

Ayers Basement Systems uses PolyLevel®, which is an alternative to mud jacking and lifts the concrete back into place. We do this by pumping the PolyLevel® under the structure to lift it back into place. 

The best part of our PolyLevel® solution is that it sets in as little as 15 minutes and is non-intrusive and makes very little mess. PolyLEVEL is also much lighter than concrete so it doesn't put additional stress on weak soil bases.

Ayers Basement Systems is your best choice for concrete leveling and lifting in Cadillac, so contact us to set up your FREE concrete lifting estimate today.

Job Stories From Cadillac, MI
Evening Bike Shop FLoors

Bob's bicycle store was experiencing uneven floors. Once it started to affect business, he contacted Ayers for a safe and permanent solution. Our resident foreman Evan was happy to inspect the building and found the soil had shifted.


To correct this problem, Evan and his team installed Helical Piers to re-stabilize the shop's foundation.


Helical Piers are a tool trusted by Ayers due to their non-intrusive nature compared to other foundational repair systems. The piers are long screw-shaped drives that are driven deep under the home at an angle. The drives keep going till they pass the weak soil and find new firm ground. The tops of the piers are capped with load-bearing caps that provide a flat surface for the home to rest upon. 

Leveling Concrete in Cadillac, MI

Bob noticed unsightly cracks in his home's driveway and wanted a clean fix. He contacted Ayers and had our resident foreman Evan inspect the area. Evan decided the best way to treat the concrete was by using PolyLevel.


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 the Winter comes not much can be done and the weather can make the damage worse. 

Cadillac Driveway Looks Brand New Again

Cracking and sinking pavement can not only look ugly, but it also can decrease home value and become a tripping hazard.  Luckily, at Ayers Basement Systems, we are able to bring concrete back to its original position and prevent further moving of concrete slabs.  Using PolyLevel, we are able to provide a quick curing solution that is noninvasive and incredible stable.  PolyLevel works through making a small hole in the cement to fill the empty void under the slab with foam.  This foam has a very quick curing time and will bring the cement back up to the original position.  Once the slab is in the right position, the foam will harden to be driven on the same day.

Unappealing Crawl Spaces No Longer Have to be a Concern

Every homeowner who has a crawl space probably dreads having to go down there or just avoids entering the space at all costs. But we have just the solution to make this a more accessible, usable space for you, plumbers, or anyone else who may have to enter your musty crawl space. We call this system CleanSpace. CleanSpace is fitted to your crawl space and attached at the walls and covers the entire floor as well. The material is made of a very thick plastic that is inorganic and waterproof so there is no chance of mold growth. CleanSpace can get rid of odor, it directs any water to the sump pump and keeps out critters. It really is a great system that will take all your crawl space worries away. Not to mention, its a bright, white color so it really lightens up the space and makes it more appealing to enter. 

Crawl Space Encapsulation in Cadillac, MI

Robert M. had a home built close to a lake and wanted his crawl space to be encapsulated. His home was built in 2000 and the walls were made of poured concrete. Due to his home being near a lake, our team of experts decided to install CleanSpace and a SmartSump sump pump.

Poured concrete walls allow water and moisture to seep through and enter the crawl space. The CleanSpace liner, made of plastic (an inorganic material), will prevent water and moisture from seeping  into the space. The SmartSump sump pump will pump out any water that gathers in the space from the concrete walls and pump it out.

In addition to CleanSpace and the SmartSump, we installed the Iceguard and the Lawnscape Outlet. The Lawnscape Outlet provides a place for the water to discharge, that gathers in the sump pump, away from the house. We want to make sure the water has somewhere to go. Iceguard is installed to make sure the water is still able to discharge when the discharge lines freeze in those cold winter months. It keeps the water from backing up into your crawl space.

I have a small crack in my poured wall foundation. I can see where a previous attempt has been made to repair the crack. The area has had condensation on it one time I've noticed in the past with a very small amount of water on the basement floor before. The basement is unfinished with only wall framing in place as I've removed the drywall and insulation. The home was built in 2006.
