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.

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.

Protecting a Dirt Floor Crawl Space in Cadillac, MI

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.

Dirty Crawl space Gets A Makeover In Cadillac, Michigan

Most people don't want to go in their crawl space because well...it'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.

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 basement is unfinished with only wall framing in place as I've removed the drywall and insulation. The home was built in 2006.
